A web browser is a software application that enables a user to display and interact with text, images, and other information typically located on a web page at a website on the World Wide Web or a local area network. Text and images on a web page can contain hyperlinks to other web pages at the same or different websites. Web browsers allow a user to quickly and easily access information provided on many web pages at many websites by traversing these links.
Opera is well known for being one of the fastest browsers when tested, but also for being a full suite of tools for many internet (like an email client and IRC client). Although browsing pages on the World Wide Web is just one thing that Opera can do, the entire suite of tools is referred to as the Opera browser.
