Opera 9 Technology Preview 2

Opera released a technology preview of Opera 9, codenamed Merlin, on Opera Labs. There are some very cool features we want you to try:

New Features:


Opera Widgets
– Widgets are small AJAX applications that provide specific
functionality – like getting your favorite news, converting currency
and so on.


– BitTorrent has become one of the most popular file transfer protocols

Create search

Customize your search engines
– Use your favorite search engine in the search box. Go to the site you
want and right click on the search field site and click on the search
field. You will then be prompted to “create searchâ€?

Block content

Improved content blocker
– Cosmetic surgery for Web pages. Just right click on a page and select
“block contentâ€?. Any content not greyed out can be blocked with a
click. Select “doneâ€? and see the page the way you want.

Block pop-ups

Improved pop-up blocker
– Just try it with some nasty popups.

Site preferences

Site specific preferences
– For those of you who want to control settings for specific pages.
Want to accept some cookies and deny others? How about setting your own
style sheet to make the site more accessible? Just right click on the
page and select “Site preferencesâ€?.

Thumbnail preview

Thumbnail preview
– Opera conserves system resources and uses less memory than other
browsers so it’s easy to have many tabs open at once. But just what tab
had that video you wanted? Using the thumbnail feature, you can find
out by resting the mouse on any tab.
