Many have Proxo installed to help protect their privacy, prevent pop-ups, etc. Proxo is normally installed as a proxy, and Opera has no objection to that setup.
Opera also behaves nicely with Kerio Personal Firewall, and others as well.

To store your information in Opera go to Tools-->Preferences-->Advanced-->Wand and fill in your data.
Next time you need to fill out a Web form, right-click on a field, choose Insert from the pop-up menu, and select your saved data from the provided list.
Now, you can move the mouse up/down and the page will automatically scroll. The speed depends on how far up or down you move the cursor. This way, you can, for example, leave the mouse and let the lines scroll slowly by while you sit back, relax, and read the text.
You can also move backwards and forwards in the history list by holding down the Ctrl or Alt key and using the Right and Left arrow keys or just using Z and X.
Opera also maintains a global history of all sites you have accessed. The number of entries can be set in the "History and cache" section of Opera's Preferences (accessed through the "File" menu or by pressing Alt+P on the keyboard).
*TIP* You can access the global history via Window > Special > History. The file where Opera stores these entries is called "global.dat", and you can delete it if you want to remove traces of your online surfing or if Opera crashes when trying to access it.
*Note* Your drive letter may be different.
Because retrieving images can be very slow, the first two states may seriously speed up your browsing.
This setting can be toggled in any window by pressing the g key or clicking the button that looks like a tiny screen on the left side of the document address.
Select "Multimedia" from the left-hand side list
In the "Images" frame, select "Show loaded images only" to see images loaded in earlier sessions and stored in the cache.
You can now select which images you want to load by right-clicking where the image will appear and selecting "Show image".
domain.com=1 -- Identify as Opera
domain.com=2 -- Identify as Mozilla
domain.com=3 -- Identify as Internet Explorer
domain.com=4 -- Identify as Mozilla, hide Opera ID completely
domain.com=5 -- Identify as Internet Explorer, hide Opera ID completely
Now 1, 2, and 3 are (believed) the same as what you get if you make those choices via the F12 menu. What is new is 4 and 5, which come with the option of removing the word "Opera" from the User Agent string entirely.
By editing the ua.ini file you can trick sites into believing that you are using a different browser. Most of the time you will find that the sites work just fine, even if they told you that you had to use Netscape or Internet Explorer. This is highly recommended for just about any website run by Microsoft, especially MSN which has a history of blocking Opera for no reason.
What are the other advantages to MDI? You can view more than one tab at once, all inside opera! The attachment show examples of opera tiling windows. To tile windows press F6 + shift, press F5 + shift to cascade. You can also use find the cascade and tile buttons in tools-appearance-buttons-browser. This really comes in handly when you need to view more than one page at once.
(Tip: When cascading or tiling, you are likely to get a horizontal scrollbar, use fit to window width to make it go away by pressing ctrl + F11 or going to view>fit to window width.)

A lot of user JS scripts for Opera can be found here: »userjs.org
How to Install:
Click on the Opera button and save the urlfilter.ini file into the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\"your username"\Application Data\Opera\Opera\profile
The following is for Windows XP only.
The "Application Data" subdirectory is a hidden subdirectory, so you may first have to do the following before you can download the urlfilter.ini file listed above:
Click on “My Computer”, then “Tools,” then “Folder Options,” then “View,” click on “show hidden files and folders”, then click “Apply”. All done. Now download the file as outlined above.

First you need to download the Greasemonkey script that you would like to use in Opera. You may need to rename that script so that the file ends with user.js if that is not already the case.
Opera needs to be restarted so that the scripts can be loaded once the folder has been selected. After that it’s just a matter of testing the scripts on whatever website they are working on.
