[OT] Opera 7.60 Preview 1


Gordon Darling


Also available for windows.

"Opera 7.60 Preview 1 for Linux and FreeBSD is available for download. As
usual, discuss the new version in opera.linux, on the opera-linux mailing
list, and in the my.opera.com Opera for Linux forum. Please do not
distribute the download link directly, but link to the post in opera.linux
or in the my.opera.com Opera for Linux forum.

Due to the experimental nature of this release, upgrading a previous Opera
installation is not recommended. If you'd like to test your mail from a
previous release with this preview, delete the \Opera\Mail\ folder, then
copy your entire Mail folder from your old install to your 7.60 Preview 1

"=== Major New Features ===
* New start-up options *

One of the first things you will notice when you start Opera is the
ability to select whether to use Opera as an Internet suite or as a
browser only. The latter option disables Opera Mail, which can be enabled
again via Preferences > Programs and paths. The first-time setup dialog
also allows you to easily disable the personal bar and panel selector to
increase your page viewing area.

*In-line error pages *

Opera 7.60 features in-line error pages, allowing you to continue to work
if a page loading in the background gives an HTTP error. The error pages
include helpful tips to troubleshoot possible problems and stay out of
your way until you are ready to deal with them.

* Medium-Screen Rendering *

Not everyone has huge monitors or lots of free workspace. That is one of
the reasons we created Medium-Screen Rendering (MSR), available by
selecting "Fit to width" from the "View" menu. MSR reformats pages so they
fit better on smaller screens. The end result is a page that is very close
to the original design, but that should not require horizontal scrolling.

damn right that's off-topic...

"Whenever we read the obscene stories,
the voluptuous debaucheries,
the cruel and torturous executions,
the unrelenting vindictiveness,
with which more than half the bible is filled,
it would seem more consistent that we called it
the word of a demon than the Word of God.
It is a history of wickedness that has served
to corrupt and brutalize mankind."

-Thomas Paine
