    [news=http://www.opera.com/img/operalogo.gif]Opera lets you surf the Internet in a safer, faster, and easier way. One of the most full-featured Internet power tools on the market, it includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches, and advanced functions like Opera's groundbreaking E-mail program, RSS Newsfeeds and IRC chat. You can customize the look and content of your browser with a few clicks of the mouse.

    Opera has the following other editions available: Opera for FreeBSD, Opera for Linux and Opera for Mac OS X.
    Latest Changes:

    * Several memory leaks fixed
    * Display issues fixed - noticeable e.g. on gmail and vBulletin sites
    * Fixed bug with attachment button on gmail
    * Fixed bug with pages not loaded on restart
    * Fixed content blocker
    * Fixed Proxy On/Off toggle in Quick Preferences
    * Added setting for show widget handle in Preferences > General
    * Ongoing work on widget GUI

    Just a slight warning that Opera 8333 (linked above) is actually a weekly build
    http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/
    So its basically more beta than opera's normal beta. Most of the weeklies are fine (I tried a couple), but some have had fairly major bugs

    I'm totally not getting this widget thing, (along with the incorporation of a "mobile AJAX framework") its apparently part of some masterplan to make your browser "a platform for applications". Means nowt to me and all the widgets so far are a bit gay.


    @tempestv I think you should be able to set this up in tools, preferences, advanced, shortcuts, mouse setup, edit,
    on mine i can see mouse button 6,7 its probably those
    the changing of mouse and keyboard settings isn't that intuitiive, but a bit of trial and error should get you there

    I actually had it installed- in fact that's how I fixed the problem- I remaped the button to the keystroke Alt+left arrow. I messed around in the prefrences enough, so I found another way not involving opera.
