The Norwegian corporation, Opera Software has launched the latest version of its Opera’s award-winning Web browser – Opera 9.6, which adds new and improved features that aimed to offer advances in convergence and communication.

“We believe in making the Web available for people everywhere,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO of Opera Software. “The people who use Opera need it to adapt to their needs and we’re proud to continue that tradition today. Our improved e-mail client is now the ideal communication tool. Opera Link gives you more flexibility to take your personal browsing identity with you to any computer. The new Opera 9.6 gives more people around the world new reasons to choose Opera.”

Improvements Of Opera 9.6:

  • Expanded Opera Link – Opera lets you take your favorite search engines and the browser history you enter wherever you go. Opera Link also synchronizes notes taken in your Opera browser, your bookmarks, Speed Dial and personal bar.
  • Optimized Opera M2 – Stuck with a slow connection? Our built-in e-mail client, Opera M2, now includes “low-bandwidth mode” to retrieve mails even faster when bandwidth is limited.
  • Prioritized e-mail – Opera M2 has two new ways to manage e-mail conversations. Keep an eye on important threads and contacts by following them, or ignore less important threads and contacts with a single click.
  • Increased speed – Opera 9.6 improves the quick responsiveness and page loading of Opera 9.5.
  • Previewed feeds – Look before you feed. Now you can see an RSS feed’s content before subscribing to it or even bookmarking it. Opera gives you a clean, multi-column preview for each RSS feed so you know what to expect before you subscribe.
  • Improved fluency – Opera is pleased to add support for Indonesian, Ukrainian, Estonian, Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil languages.

The new Opera 9.6 is now available as a free download for Mac, Linux and Windows computers through its official site, shipping in more than 38 languages.
