    Opera Software on Tuesday rolled out version 9.0 of its free Web browser across 25 languages on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X platforms. The release adds a number of major new features, including widgets and support for BitTorrent downloads.

    Widgets are small mini-applications that typically run inside another program. The basic idea is to enable developers to quickly build useful applications with simple scripting languages like JavaScript and DHTML. Opera notes that its widget support can be used for multimedia, news feeds, games and more.

    9 is crap!

    I upgraded from 8.54 and realized that 9 should still be in beta. The personal bar is missing features, you cant identify as IE anymore so you cant use alot of sites, alot of sites with perl integration are sub par and some froames wont even load as they did in 8.54.... bunch of other stuff too. Bottom line, i used Opera 9 for about 10 minutes and then reinstalled to a previous version, I love opera, its all i use, but 9 is not ready yet.

    I did n't like it much either but you try, you delete problem solved . Found the widgets annoying as well . Hey back to the drawing board I guess,wish they'd get it together because this browser is fucking fast .

    Opera 9 is alright with me.. Dont really have time to mess with the wigits but perhaps I'll do it later. But I agree, its damn fast. Opera has always been like that. One of the reasons why i like it.
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    Damn. Bad reviews.
    I just opened Opera and saw the update popup,
    then came here to see if it had been announced,
    and what was the verdict so far.
    Guess I'll wait.
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
