The popular and aggressively named website SlashGeek recently did a feature on Opera where they looked at 5 of the top browser innovations by Opera that has been copied by others that we now take for granted:
1) Browser tabs:
The idea of tabs in browsers was first implemented in Opera before tabs were "cool". Remember having 10-15 browser windows open for each website you visited? That used to be norm until we changed all of that.
2) Speed Dial:
We first released Speed Dial back 2007 with Opera 9.50 beta 1. The final release was in 2008. Speed Dial displays web sites in the form of thumbnails on your startup screen.
