Opera Software has released a new version of its popular browser, with new features, and it looks very promising, maybe even more than Netscape could deliver.

To do away with their old disadvantage of charging for their software, while Internet Explorer and Netscape offer their browsers for free, the Norwegian company now offers an ad-sponsored version for free in addition to the regular, US$39.00 (standard price) version. The ad version downloads ads once a week only.

The previous versions were known for their speed, small size, accessibility, and support for standards.

The new version pushes for some more:

Opera also offers many options for sys admins, webdesigners, and programmers at their site.

I am off to browse around with it some more!

Till later, maybe I will add some more comments if others don't beat me to it.

Best Regards to all Evolters,
