Replace with: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\opera.exe” /notrayicon (with quotes).

During Safari 4 browsing experience on Windows, I couldn’t understand why Safari won’t restore my last opened web pages during the launch nor do find a way to do that. Fortunately, I have found a solution to do that and it’s really simple.

History > Reopen All Windows from Last Session
If you were following our Twitter updates, then this shouldn’t be a big surprise for you.

Opera 10 support should be added soon, waiting for reply from Opera Software to confirm all the paths.
