Opera browser is a powerful browser that allows clearing the browsing data quickly. It will enable clearing the browsing history, stored cookies, and cache from the Clear browsing data option.

It also provides the advanced option to remove the stored passwords, bookmarks, and autofill form data for a full browser reset.

It will immediately clear the selected data sets from the Opera browser. After you remove the cache, the sites you usually visit may take longer to load, but it’s normal, and there’s nothing to worry about.

You can switch to the Advanced tab under Clear browsing data and remove Download History, News usage data, Passwords, and form auto-fill for the complete Opera browser reset.

Note: Clearing the data will sign out of the websites and load the sites slower when interacting for the first time.

Bottom Line

The Opera browser offers the option to clear the temporary browsing data. With a clear browsing data option, you can delete the history, cookies, and cache for a specific date range, which will help eliminate browser and site loading issues.

It also has the Advanced option to delete stored information like saved addresses, payment card details, and stored password credentials. But, deleting this saved information is irreversible; hence, proceed with caution.
