We would like to wish you a very happy birthday. I guess celebrating birthday is not all about that “free day”, but rather spending some time with whom you enjoy to, Opera Software employers and Opera users this time.
Yes, Jon is working today, on his birthday :-)
I bet some of you were expecting to see Opera 10 first preview releases after Opera 9.5 was introduced. This won’t be happening any time soon because few days ago Opera Team introduced 1st snapshot of Opera 9.6.
As from “First 9.60 Snapshot!” post:
Custom search engines and typed history* are now joining bookmarks, speed dials, personal bar, and notes in Opera Link. Continue Reading
Opera Team today released an update for its Opera 9.5 series web browser which is 9.52. The following release fixes quite a lot of issues in the following areas: user interface, mail, news, chat, display and scripting, security and more.

Added several improvements to the icons and skin
Added a bookmark path to autocompleted bookmarks in the address bar to better distinguish them from visited pages

I always wanted to share all the news about web browsers. However, there are plenty of those which are just “too small” to be posted.
So from now on, every few days (or a week) we will have a short brief of some of them.

Of course I can’t tell you exactly what’s being developed in this top-secret Opera base, but its technology that’s able to transform the browser as we know it, using the latest computer hardware to our advantage.

Are you having issues viewing various web pages from time to time where css style sheets don’t load?
Solution might be simpler than you thought. One of the reasons why it can happen is due to AdBlock. In case you are blocking ads on the web page, unblock them all and try now.
It worked for me.
Since there was a tip on changing Firefox 3 color scheme, this one is for Opera users.
If you are using Opera 9.5 and don’t know this trick yet, you can easily change skin color scheme by following those steps:
Tools > Appearance
Find “Color Scheme” setting in the bottom and play with it.
Haavard yet again posted a great tip. This one tells you how you can change the maximum opened tabs limit in Opera Mobile 9.5. As he writes:
To increase the number of allowed tabs, go to opera:config, and set “Maximum Allowed Tabs” to the number of your choice (you may have to restart Opera).
Yet another month passed by and it’s time to check how’s your favorite browser doing. On June, Firefox 3 and Opera 9.5 final versions were released. Did release increased those browsers market share? Let’s find out.
Internet Explorer continues its tradition to lose market share. This time it decreased by 0.74%, from 73.75% to 73.01%. Continue Reading
