I've only used Opera for a couple of months. Does it use iskysoft for downloads?

  • I'm rather new to using Opera. It is a well kept secret. I had never heard of it until I got fed up with IE, Firefox, and Chrome and decided to look for something else.

    So far, I love it. With only a couple of tweaks it would be perfect. 🙂

    I found something called iSkysoft on my computer and I'm not sure how it got there. It seems to be something to do with downloading files from the internet. I was going to delete it but before I did that I thought I should ask to see if Opera uses it for their downloads.

    My internet connection is so slow that I can't watch videos on the net. It buffers only about 3 seconds of video at a time. So I download them and watch them offline. I download a lot of videos from Youtube, mainly art and needlework instructional videos, so downloading is very important to me.

    Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. And thank you for providing a great internet browser.

  • @morlaine Nope, Opera doesn't use anything for downloads.

    If I would find an unknown software in my system, I would run an anti-malware.
