No Opera 10 yet, Introducing Opera 9.6I 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.

What’s new?

As from “First 9.60 Snapshot!” post:

Opera Link
Custom search engines and typed history* are now joining bookmarks, speed dials, personal bar, and notes in Opera Link.

* Typed history is only the history you explicitly type or select from the address bar

Feed Preview
Now you can preview an RSS/Atom feed before subscribing.

Opera Mail: Low Bandwidth Mode
Low Bandwidth Mode is a setting on mail accounts that makes Opera Mail use as little bandwidth as possible. For IMAP, this means that Opera will only synchronize new messages and it will not fetch message attachments unless requested. For POP, Opera will not fetch more than the first 100 lines of a message unless requested.

Opera Mail: Follow/Ignore threads and contacts
Follow and Ignore are new features for users that receive a lot of messages. It makes it easier to dismiss unimportant messages and easier to recognize important messages.

Opera Mail: Go To Thread
You can now also “Go to thread” which means that you can view only the messages from that thread. Useful for those that uses flat view.

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a Final Release. Use it on your own risk.

Known issues
Follow/ignore thread misses some messages
