Hoy fue liberada la version 8 del navegador Opera.
Las características que destacan en el sitio son las siguientes (voy a ir traduciendo de a poquito :P):
Surf the Web easier and faster by opening multiple Web pages within the same application window.
Search Google, eBay, Amazon and more with Opera's integrated search. You can also search directly
in the address field using shortcuts (e.g. "g" for Google).
Opera lets you control whether to block all pop-ups, or open only the ones that you have requested.
Fast Forward will detect the most likely "next page" link and greatly simplify navigation
in multi-page documents.
Opera's password manager remembers your usernames and passwords so you will not have to.
Save a collection of open pages as a session, for later retrieval, or start with the pages you had open
when Opera was last closed.
Opera supports mouse gestures, allowing you to perform certain movements with the mouse in order to access
commonly used features.
Pressing F12 displays Opera's 'Quick preferences' menu to easily switch settings such as browser authentication,
pop-up and cookie preferences.
Notes can be kept in conjunction with a Web site you want to refer to later, to remind you of any particular
information you may like to review again.
The voice feature allows you to control Opera's interface by talking and to have documents read aloud. Voice
is currently offered in English and runs on Windows 2000 and XP.
Security and privacy
Opera displays security information inside the address bar, located next to the padlock icon that
indicates the level of security present on a site.
Opera supports Secure Socket Layer (SSL) versions 2 and 3, and TLS. Opera offers automatic 128-bit
encryption, the highest available security of any Web browser.
Delete private data
Opera can be configured to clear the history and cache when exiting, to protect your privacy. Any
kind of private data can easily be erased at any time.
Opera gives you detailed control of what cookies to accept and reject, such as allowing for different
set-ups for different servers.
Mail and Chat
Opera's built-in POP/IMAP E-mail client is a combined e-mail program, news reader, mailing list organizer
and RSS/Atom newsfeed reader.
Communicate with people all over the world using Opera's IRC chat client. Chat privately or in rooms, or
share files with your friends and family.
Drag and drop
Using the 'appearance' dialog you can make Opera look almost any way you want. Move buttons and search fields,
add and remove toolbars, and so forth.
Opera skins can give your browser the look you want. Make the browser your own by giving it the icons and
buttons of your choice.
Opera's user interface is translated into a multitude of languages, and the language can be changed on the fly.
With Opera you can zoom the contents of any Web page from 20%-1000% using the zoom dropdown or the + and - keys.
Text size and colors
Text size and link styling can be changed using Opera. Text color and background color can also be customized.
User style sheets
Opera comes with a set of ready-made style sheets, including accessibility style, that can be used to override
a Web site's style set completely.
Opera prides itself in supporting all major Web standards currently in use, including CSS 2.1, XHTML 1.1,
HTML 4.01, WML 2.0, ECMAScript, DOM 2 and SVG 1.1 tiny.
When displaying a page in small-screen mode (Shift+F11) you can see how it will look on a mobile phone or
other small-screen device running Opera.
You can validate the HTML code of any Web page by pressing Ctrl+Alt+v.
Toggle graphics and style sheets
Graphics and style sheets can be toggled on/off via Opera's menus and shortcuts.
The Info panel shows details about the currently open page such as MIME type, page size, character encoding and more.
Reload from cache
Edit the source of any open Web page and view the result instantly by using 'Reload from cache' (Tools/Advanced).
The F11 key toggles Opera's projection mode, using the whole screen for browsing and, if a projection
style sheet is present, displays 'slides' suitable for presentation.
Registered versions of Opera supports kiosk mode - a lock-down mode in which the browser can be used for
unattended information stands in public environments.
