    Choose speed, productivity and innovation with Opera 9.6

    Opera Software today launched Opera 9.6, the newest version of Opera’s award-winning Web browser. Opera 9.6 enhances the performance and flexibility of Opera’s built-in e-mail client, while adding new features to Opera’s free browser-synchronization service, Opera Link. Opera 9.6 is available as a free download from

    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.

    “We believe in making the Web available for people everywhere,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. “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.”

    Of course, Opera 9.6 includes many features Opera users have already come to know and love. Speed Dial gives you one-click access to your favorite sites. Take notes as you browse, and connect them to the page you’re browsing. Save and restore browsing sessions after you close the browser and never lose a Web site or e-mail if you accidentally close a tab. Surf with ease, thanks to mouse gestures. All these features and many others bring a fresh approach to browsing the Web in Opera 9.6.

    Opera 9.6 is available for Linux, Mac and Windows computers and ships in more than 38 languages. Opera is free from

  3. Opera Integrates Web Mining Protection in Their Latest Opera 50 RC

    Opera has announced that the latest, Release Candidate (RC) version of their web browser now incorporates an innovative cryptocurrency mining protection baked in. Opera has been one of the most versatile browsers for some time now, offering integrated VPN, AdBlocker, and bandwidth reduction on its releases. Some issues, such as measure of lacking visibility against Firefox and Chrome, and performance that's seldom in the top spot from the available offerings in the market, has kept this browser from being the go-to option for users. Now, the opera team have again innovated, by integrating a cryptocurrency web mining blocker onto the latest release.

    The solution, dubbed NoCoin, works within the confines of the integrated AdBlocking protection, with extended lists that eliminates cryptocurrency mining scripts that "overuse your device's computing ability." To enable the mining protection, users need to go to Settings or Preferences. The NoCoin (Cryptocurrency) setting can be found in Recommended lists of ad filters in the Block ads page. "With NoCoin turned on, pages embedded with cryptocurrency mining scripts will be blocked in a similar way our mechanism blocks ads," said Opera desktop QA Kornelia Mielczarczyk. This is all well and good, but some extensions already offer this kind of protection, and with Google adding their own AdBlocking solution to Chrome in early 2018, this feature exclusivity likely won't remain an additional arrow in Opera's feature quiver for long.

    Opera and web bar

    Firefox to Opera

    I switched to Opera after dealing with Firefox constantly stuttering and being laggy, and I have to say I am amazed at Opera so far - everything seems immensely more responsive (I swear it anticipates me middle-clicking on a link and acts before I do), but like all switches there are a few things I would like help on:
    • In Firefox I was able to put the navigation stuff (back, forward, address bar) on the menu bar (file, bookmarks, etc.), and I would really like to do that with Opera (or put stuff on the menu bar on the address bar), how would I do that?
    • I notice that the description on tabs (when you hover over a tab) is animated. I being an avid opponent of animating things for no good reason (a tooltip and/or browser GUI never being a good reason), would like to disable that and any other animations I happen to come across.
    I'm not trying to rant, but those are the things that I'm currently trying to fix, and I'm new to it so I'm not sure where else to look (aside from preferences and appearance).
