    what is the best version of opera for a pc with following


    hi guys

    perhaps someone might be able to tell me what is the best verion of opera for a pc running windows 8?

    i assume all windows 8 are 64 bit verions ?

    2 gigs of ram

    dual core celeron

    i am specifically trying to get as light and stable a browser as i can that supports google docs without killing the resources pf the pc.

    thank you

    I think a 32 bit version will be less memory-hungry. I ran Opera recently on a 1gb RAM XP system after trying FF and Chrome and it seemed to be the smoothest experience for that machine.

    if you go to the Opera site with the PC you are using it for it'll give you the right one.

    If your system is 64bit it can use a 32bit or 64bit Opera but only 32bit Opera if it's 32 bit.

    just for the record the pc is a windows 8 64 bit operating system with a 64 bit dual core celeron with 2 gigs of ram

    what i dont get is why the task manager shows 32 bit when it is a 64 bit version of opera ??

    Does it say on the Opera browser somewhere which one it is?

    Just installed it. Click on the Opera Icon (Top left) and then About Opera. Loook at the Paths section if it says C;\Program Files (x86)\Opera it's the 32bit version. If it says C:\ Program Files\Opera it's a 64bit
