Important: Opera browser is a good choice as a personal browser. When we use the latest version ( this is available to all browsers ) your browser should be more secure than using an older one. Due to incompatibility issues between newer versions and older Microsoft OS like Windows 98, Me, 2000 etc. we offer some old versions ( beta versions will not be listed ). Make sure to use an older version only if you need to. Keep in mind that for older versions, a lot of security issues has been reported that could allow bad persons to gain access or to infect/affect your computer through a series of known security problems such as: "Remote Denial of Service Exploit", "IRC Client Remote Denial of Service Exploit", "JPG Image DHT Marker Heap Corruption Vulnerabilities", "Remote Denial of Service Exploit using .torrent files", "Stored Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability" etc. You must understand that an antivirus and additional security tools should be present and updated on your computer and using an old Opera browser is not a smart thing to do in most cases unless you really know what you're doing.
