    [news=]Opera Software has inked an agreement to license its Web browser and related software for next-generation, in-flight entertainment systems built on Web technology, the company said on Tuesday.

    Under the one-year agreement, Oslo, Norway-based Opera is partnering with Thales, a French firm that makes in-flight entertainment systems for airlines. Thales specializes in video-on-demand and broadband services for Boeing and Airbus aircraft.

    Opera worked with Thales last year to add Web browsing capabilities to Thales' TopSeries system, which is already used by more than 15 airlines, including Air Canada and Air France. With the new arrangement, the companies are devising a new user-interface for an in-flight system that will let airline passengers navigate the Web, videos and games on a single screen, said Christian Dysthe, a vice president of sales at Opera.

    It crashes less than Firefox, it renders pages better, and it looks nicer. If only they made it open-source.
    It's hot in Topeka.
