Opera 9.51

Opera is a free Web browser with a pop-up blocker, multiple-window navigation, mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts, an e-mail client with a spam filter, and integrated search for user security and speed. The cross-platform browser includes IRC-compatible chat, support for RSS newsfeeds, a password manager, and one-click customization and privacy-protection settings.

  1. Opera is just the best browser there is, I loved it from the first edition, in fact I even registered it some years ago when it was shareware!
    And their latest version is no less than superb!

  2. Ellow Z,

    I downloaded opera on my new laptop (chose the acer 6930 ;)).
    Just love everything about it, magic wand is ubernice.

    Got only one prob though.
    Whenever I try to open a pdf file out of opera, it doesn’t work.
    Doesn’t even try.

    Any experience with that or solution?
    See you at work 😉
