Otter : Bring back classical Opera (v12) but also take advantage of ad-blocking, Do Not Track and other privacy features, thanks to this open-source project

The Opera web browser made a radical change in appearance and functionality a while back, a move which delighted a lot of new users but unfortunately drove off others. Those who miss the classical Opera web browser can use Otter Browser, a free and open-source browser that mimics the interface of classic Opera (version 12.x) via Qt5.

However, this doesn't mean that the web browser fails to impress as far as performance is concerned. On the contrary, the optimized code ensures that Otter loads pages quickly and remains light on system resources consumption.The browser supports multiple tabs, private browsing sessions for protecting your privacy, and various tab controls (including detaches and media muting on the current tab). You can set bookmarks, save and manage sessions, import Opera bookmarks, notes, search engines, and sessions, as well as explore and clear history.

Old Opera look but modern features

Multiple search engines can be used for navigation, such as DuckDuckGo (default), Wikipedia and Bing. They can also be swiftly toggled with aliases and make suggestions. However, you can modify settings as well as add new search engines with ease.Add-ons are supported too. It's also possible to take notes, access cookie and password managers, and edit content blocking properties (including an ad blocker). "Do Not Track" is featured and enabled by default, which means that information about your online activity isn't sent to marketers to create and show you personalized offers at every turn.These are just the key features provided by Otter Browser. Others include keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures, to name but a couple of examples. The open-source project will surely attract classical Opera nostalgics thanks to the faithful resemblance. However, it also sports new and practical privacy and security features to make sure it can face the day-to-day perils of the Internet.
