New Opera available now
The new Opera, version 9.6, has been released today, and is available as a free download. The new version of the browser adds some new features to Opera’s free browser-synchronization service, Opera Link, whilst also enhancing and improving the performance of the in-built email client.
What’s new in Opera 9.6
- Expanded Opera Link
Opera lets you take your favorite search engines and the browser history you enter wherever you go. Opera Link also synchronizes notes taken in your Opera browser, your bookmarks, Speed Dial and personal bar.
- Optimized Opera Mail
Stuck with a slow connection? Our built-in e-mail client, Opera Mail, now includes “low-bandwidth mode” to retrieve mails even faster when bandwidth is limited.
- Prioritized e-mail
Opera Mail has two new ways to manage e-mail conversations. Keep an eye on important threads and contacts by following them, or ignore less important threads and contacts with a single click.
- Increased speed:
Opera 9.6 improves the quick responsiveness and page loading of Opera 9.5.
- Previewed feeds
Look before you feed. Now you can see an RSS feed’s content before subscribing to it or even bookmarking it. Opera gives you a clean, multi-column preview for each RSS feed so you know what to expect before you subscribe.
- Improved fluency
Opera is pleased to add support for Indonesian, Ukrainian, Estonian, Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil languages.
Jon von Tetzchner, CEO of Opera Software had the following to say on the new Opera:
We believe in making the Web available for people everywhere, the people who use Opera need it to adapt to their needs and we’re proud to continue that tradition today. Our improved e-mail client is now the ideal communication tool. Opera Link gives you more flexibility to take your personal browsing identity with you to any computer. The new Opera 9.6 gives more people around the world new reasons to choose Opera.
