Opera 9 Final has just been released! http://www.opera.com What is Opera? Opera is a fully featured internet browser that runs under most operating system. It is fast, light-weight, reliable and secure. Opera is often seen as a more power-user browser but with this latest release a lot of work has been done to simplify the browser for the average user (simple UI and easily customizable). I have personally been using Opera since around version 6 and have never turned back. New Features in this version: Bittorrent You don't need a separate BitTorrent application to download large files. Simply click a torrent link and start the download. Content Blocker Remove ads or images - it's up to you. Right-click (CTRL-click on the Mac) on the Web page and choose "Block content". Add your favourite search engines Right-click on the site's search field and select "Create search" from the menu. Thumbnail preview It is easy to have many tabs open at once in Opera. But exactly which tab had that video you wanted? Hover your mouse on any tab to see a thumbnail preview. Site preferences Want to view a site in a different way or deny certain cookies? Want to block pop-ups on certain sites only? Right click and select "Edit site preferences". Widgets Small Web applications (multimedia, newsfeeds, games and more) that make your desktop experience more fun. Use the Widgets menu to discover new widgets and access your favorites. Visit widgets.opera.com to learn more. Improved rich text editing Use advanced text editing features for today's most popular Web applications. Screenshots Security Why switch to Opera? Opera is completely free, so there's no reason for you not to give it a try. If, when trying Opera there's a feature that another browser (IE/Firefox) has that you can't find or any other queries, feel free to post here.
