Opera Tips and Tricks

By | December 1, 2007 | 2 Comments

The first one I’ve accidentally found by cleaning up my mouse buttons while Opera web browser was launched.

Hold right mouse click and scroll the mouse wheel. You should see all the tabs listed now.

And the second one was randomly found some time ago, very useful feature. Mark some text and click right mouse button. Menu should appear with some options. I use “Translate” function from time to time. That’s a great feature as I don’t have to open any “Translate” tools, Opera does that for me.
