Opera 9 Preview 1 Unofficially Released

October 20, 2005

Opera today released Opera 9 preview 1.

In this version Opera added an opera:config page for managing advanced preferences (very useful), support for XSLT, Canvas 2D, Web Forms 2.0, a new IMAP backend, rich-text editing on Web pages, site-specific preferences, and many more changes. See the changelog for a complete list of changes.

Opera 9 also identifies itself as Opera in its UserAgent by default.

Important: This is only a preview version and should NOT be installed over previous versions. This release uses a new account storage format. If you install over an existing profile, you will be prompted to convert all accounts into the new format. This will not require a re-index. You will not be able to use the reformatted e-mail with previous versions of Opera.

Download Opera 9

    Yoooo-hooooo, too. That’s a lot of features. Finally an internal source viewer and (hopefully) a better working IMAP backend.

    Exciting! Just downloading now. *Crosses fingers for Gmail new windows to be working*. No sign of the rich-text features, unless I’m missing it in the list

    So I just spotted rich-text in the list. This is why I shouldn’t write things before breakfast 🙂

    If Firefox can copy Opera and Maxthon in almost every feature it has, why cannot be copied by Opera?

    Best regards,

    i use firefox, ie and opera.
    I love opera but it is harder to use.
    it is sad that opera will not identify itself as ie or mozilla anymore but still. I am awaiting, anybody got any screenshots.
    please post them here.
    another feature i like to see is opera’s search bar being kind of open source like firefox and mainly opera’s address bar like firefox (automatic i’m feeling lucky query’s).

    “…it is sad that opera will not identify itself as ie or mozilla anymore but still.”

    This is anything but sad. It’s great news.
