- Fast Forward. Fast Forward will detect the most likely "next page" link and greatly simplify navigation in multi-page documents.

- Improved rich text editing - Take advantage of rich text editing capabilities when using the latest Web mail or blogging services
- Customize your search engines Use your favorite search engine in the search box. Right-click on the site's search field and select "Create search" from the menu
- Thumbnail preview It's easy to have many tabs open at once in Opera. But exactly which tab had that video you wanted? Hover any tab to see a thumbnail preview
- Site-specific preferences - Do you need to view a site in a different way or deny certain cookies? Want to block pop-ups on certain sites only? Site specific preferences hold the key


Changes in Opera 9.0 Build 8414 Beta:
- Cache is not shared between widgets and pages opened from widgets.
- Fixed Bittorrent downloads on Unix.
- Fixed crash that could occur when exiting pages with Flash 8.

I'm actually using it and absolutely love Opera. Once you learn the mouse gestures you'll never go back.

Right click, move the mouse right to go forward.
Right click, move left to go back.
Right click, move up and down to refresh the page.
Right click, move down to open a new tab.
Right click, move down then right to close the tab.
Right click on a link, move down to open it in a new tab.

Mouse gestures = heaven for the lazy man. What more could you want?

Not to mention the voice commands to do all of the above as well, and you can tell opera to read a page out loud to you. It's actually extremely good on pronouncing words as well. I've only stumped it once with "amelioration", however it does pronounce "ameliorate" correctly.

My firefox has been consuming memory left, right and centre recently. Without tabs open, opera is pretty nice - hovers around 18mb mem usage. But open say 20tabs, it does tend to jump to around 150mb which is fine I guess considering my PC spec.

Opera the fastest browser? Try using Kayako on Opera. Opera renders each page so much slower. What takes 2-3 seconds with FireFox/IE can take 30-40 seconds with Opera.

Opera 9 kick ***. Everyone should use it. By far the best browser out there, the most compliant, most feature packed and the most secure. What's not to use about it?

I agree. You can't get much better than Opera 9. Not only is it fast, uses fewer system sources compared to Firefox, and is very secure, but at the same time, it's the most customisable browser available -- It really is all things to all people.

I've been using Opera 9 for a week or so now. I'm fully converted from Firefox. Opera is faster and more intuitive. The binding of the "z" key to back and "x" key to forward makes my broswing so much more efficient.

[edit: it's stabler on my CentOS box than it is on my Windows box at home. It also doesnt play well with certain sites, but in general, it's fine.]

Opera 9 is awesome from a feature standpoint (as every release of Opera has been ever since 7.11), but they still have a couple kinks to work out before I'm ready to switch. Switching to Opera 9 means updating my mail format, which I'm not ready to do until it is absolutely invincible. I'll stick with 8.54 for the time being, and probably switch in a couple months (they tend to work out bugs pretty quickly over there).
