Opera Coast won’t change your life, but it will amuse, inform and divert you. It's the small moments that can make or break your day, and Opera Coast makes them enjoyable. Like when you need to pass some time at the bus stop, have ten minutes to kill in between meetings or are lounging on the couch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
We believe there is more to the web than just a handful of favorite sites and the first page of search results. It’s an exciting place, full of surprises waiting to be discovered. Opera Coast brings that to you. It was made to entertain you, without getting in your way.
Here are some of the ways in which Opera Coast makes the web fun:
- It gives you the smoothest browsing experience on iPhone and iPad. It makes websites look just as good as those apps you love, and it lets you use simple gestures to navigate easily and intuitively.
- Every time you open Opera Coast, there will be something new for you to read or enjoy - breaking news, interesting stories and articles and sites we think you might like. Get beyond the same old sites.
- Our search results aren’t a wall of text; they are visual, instead. This makes it easy for you to spot what you are looking for on Google and to access sites.
- Make it your own - match your style and personality. Choose from our selection of wallpapers, or use one of your own pictures.
- We’ll keep you safe. If there is danger from a site, we’ll warn you; otherwise, we won’t bother you with technical details. Just enjoy the ride.
- You can quickly share stuff from the web, and make it more personal by adding a message. Sharing is caring.
- Browse smoothly even on slow networks, thanks to its Opera Turbo technology.
- Juggling several iOS devices? You can sync your Opera Coast data over iCloud between your iPhone and your iPad.

Not sure I understand the hype...
After reading all the hype and 5-Star reviews, I figured I'd give it a try! But honestly, I'm rather disappointed... It has WAY LESS features than Safari, let alone Chrome (which honestly seems to remove features by the update), -1 star for the lack of features. It is very smooth, so 2 stars for that. However, it's also pretty slow when clicking links / initial loading, so -2 stars for that.
Good concept, needs work
I like the idea. If I didn't have to always reload the previous tab/history, and if the previous tab/history were more specific than just the site's main page, this would be my favorite browser. But as is, it's simply more tedious than a traditional tabbed browser.
Stylish and clean
It has a refreshingly different interface. It's very simple and quick. I like the suggested sites and the way icons blink when it loads a site.
