Opera 9 released





saurabh.sauron
Opera 9 has come out of Beta and released for home users. It has been released for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

The problem is that if u r still using an older version, your browser will not inform u about the update.

I like it, it's fast and has some quite useful tools. Most bugs (the ones I found) of the beta are fixed now.

It can't completely replace FireFox yet (Plug-ins), but it's nice to have it as a 'co-browser'

Opera really is a nice and polished browser. I have it installed in conjunction with Firefox.

It was downloaded 750,000 times on the first day itself.

Well, now I don't have problems viewing YTMNDs in Opera like I did in 9 Beta and below... That's nice.

I have been a fan of Opera for a long time, running 8.54. When I upgraded to 9 I lost all my bookmarks, cookies, passwords, and I was glad to have saved the entire Opera 8 folder before starting. I wonder if a less experienced user could have recovered all this vital information - lose your bookmarks and you may never find some of those sites again. Reading the forum on http://my.opera.com/community/forums/forum.dml?id=26 it seems others have had problems, too.

There is an excellent Wiki at http://operawiki.info/Opera

And some good JS add-ons at http://userjs.org/ with IFrame blockers, link type indicators, allsorts...

Opera is far and away the better browser, but there are still bugs. Perhaps when they go Open Source things will run more smoothly. I get the impression that 9 was not really ready for release... but use it anyway. For what it costs, I can't grumble!

THe most common cause for this is the change in profiles directory. People change from single user mode to multi user mode and vice versa.

I am the sole user of my machine (W98SE), but as we have four computers on a LAN in the house, sharing one phone-line, I have to log on on boot-up. Password? Enter... This would be a hassle, except that TweakUI logs on for me automatically (as well as doing lots of other useful things...)

This makes me, like a good Englishman, an orderly queue of one... and so I get to be a profile. Just another of the perversities of Windows.

Opera 8.54 didn't ask me on installation if I wanted multiple users, but 9 did. I got all my information back, but fear that many people were inconvenienced. This is a shame, as it gives Opera bad cred, and they should have anticipated this before the release...

Is there a place in Opera where you can switch between profiles? I have searched...

- TweakUI for W9x - http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/tweakui
- Follow the links for W2000, ME, XP...

I'm using 9 to wright thius post right now. It's fast, some useful tools. Prog never closes if there are many tabs (like avant does). I Using beta 2 and didn't find bugs. This version ios really good.

I'm using Opera for over a year now, and i'm a liitle bit disappointed with the final version of Opera 9. Installed without any problems - none of my bookmarks have been lost but when i opened a site that is using php-fusion cms, i've seen only left frame streched to the end of screen, no news section, no right frame, probably if the skin would be changed, the problem would disappear, but still under IE and Firefox the page looks good.

Second thing that i don't like in v9 is how it handles torrent files, i've disabled opening and downloading torrent files in Opera, but still i should be able to click on Open, and the torrent file should open in my default torrent program, but it doesn't, when i click on some torrent file and click open, nothing happen, i have to save and open manually.

The plus is the "Block content" feature, when you see some annoying flash advertisement on site you can just click rmb, choose above option, and then holding shift click advert, and voila.

I'm a little bit disappointed about new version, i've expected something more and i've been given something less. Maybe in next version...

Been using Opera for 5 years now as primary browser. Installed version 9 same day it appeared as Opera automatically informed me about availability.

There are some very usefull features in version 9, but stuff like "widgets" and the site-preview when mousing-over the tabs are kinda non-sense.

Im very pleased with Opera, the only negativ aspect is the huge amount of RAM it takes....

Well, it's definately smaller than Firefox, though...

I love opera 9. They made the widgets part of the browser more efficient and usable. built in bittorrent is a great plus, although it's a little simple for my tastes. It hasn't crashed yet, which in my book is a huge plus, as I usually have at least 9 or 10 tabs open at the same time. I love it. Everyone should at least give it a shot, especially firefox fans. Opera in my opinion offers everything firefox does and more.

Opera 9 rulz! Stability, speed and funcionality 100%.
Firefox is great browser but when i load it with plugins to get all Opera's funcionality it becomes very very slow and unstable.

I tried the Opera version 9. It's cool. And not to be mentioned, better than its predecessor. The most useful feature which I found in it is the 'Widgets' addition to the already superb browser. And the Free Dictionary widget is a great utility. I also like the support for Bittorrent integrated in Opera. I noticed this very feature in this version; may be I has been inherited from its predecessors. Nevertheless, it solves many purposes, especially when you are using a Linux OS.
Opera 9 really rocks. Cool

One, only one, of the reasons I like Opera is that you can control the styles (skins) or, more importantly not have any. The default skin sucks as much as the Firefox default, but you can switch it off! Under Tools > Appearance > Skin, there is a choice of "Windows native", so that the browser looks pretty much like any other window I open.

As with lot of sites, which seem to prefer looks to content, I find bells, whistles and widgets a distraction. Depends what you want to do - I prefer it if my monitor doesn't look like an adolescent's bedroom...

Oh, and megamass, if you need a shift key I have two on my keyboard, and very rarely use both at once. I could send you one...

Moved from IE to Firefox to Opera.
Now im addicted. Opera is the best.
Guys should just start getting going with the widgets (similar to firefox addons/ext)

I dont think i would go back to other above-mentioned browsers, unless they come up with something to beat Opera which i doubt!
