Finally the little company from Norway has grown and will be offering its powerful and innovative Web browser for free. As I mentioned in a previous article that as I wait for FireFox 1.5 to arrive I would download and play around with Opera Version 8.
Well after doing so it has been a bitter sweet experience. There are so many unique features of this browser you’re a bit overwhelmed as you take it all in. There is so much you can customize… and there are communities that provide excellent add-ons especially for developers and widget junkies. Though innovative Opera at the same time is poorly laid out, the interface is a bit jumbled and confusing.
But don’t take my opinion for it… try it out. After all it’s FREE!
BTW, also not to be missed is the fact that Opera has been busy over at their hive. They’ve cooked up some partnerships and are really pushing for the browser on mobile devices. But what really caught my eye and has been on my mind after HP announced the TV as a digital hub was the fact Opera has a SDK for their product to run on a TV.
Very interesting in that it is written in HTML and JAVA for easy platform compatibility. Amen to that.
