Opera aims to product the fastest and most powerful Web browser available and make the most of your time online. The latest release is even faster with better support for Web standards. Opera 9.6 is quicker to start, faster at loading Web pages and better at running your favorite Web applications. New features include synchronizing custom Search engines and typed History with Opera Link, and a feeds preview that makes it easier to see the feeds content before subscribing to it.
Version 9.6 also adds enhanced speed and changes to Opera Mail, notably low bandwidth mode and the ability to follow or ignore threads.
