Opera 9.5 released

 11:13 am on Jun 12, 2008 (gmt 0)

We've made the fastest browser in the world even faster with superior support for Web standards. Opera 9.5 is quicker to start, faster at loading Web pages and better at running your favorite Web applications.

  • More than 2x faster than Opera 9.2 in rendering JavaScript and HTML
  • Faster handling of third party plug-ins
  • Much faster start up time
  • Superior support for Web standards
  • [opera.com...]

    New features [opera.com]

    I just wrote a very long and important email using Gmail and I wanted to get some information about my Opera.

    So I click on Help >> About Opera and bah ! I get the about Opera page in the same window.

    I click "Back", to get the home page of Gmail and sadly my email has not been saved !


    Thanks Opera !

    the auto refresh is gmails fault - not operas.

    also - go to prefs and uncheck "reuse current tab".

    Well, I've tried just about every possible combination on the History preferences page and images still get stuck in the cache - even if I right click and choose "Reload Image".

    The only fix for me is to chose "Open Image" and then "Reload" with image's url in the location bar. PITA and I really want a fix, because I much prefer to develop in Opera first. I hope I either stumble on something, or Opera issues an update soon.

    Favorite browser here for many years (was the only current version browser I could run on my old 95/98 machine).

    This is the first upgrade I have not liked - perhaps I don't like change. No experience with the problems others are reporting, but my installation/configuration might be less complex.

    Went back to 9.27 and will stay ther until most agree 9.5x is good to go. Thanks for keeping a topic area for Opera.

    @Brett, you are right... It's Gmail fault :) And thanks for the "reuse current tab"

    @Tedster >> Did you try Alt+F5 to force page reload without cache ?


     10:46 pm on Jun 26, 2008 (gmt 0)

    Yep, no joy with alt+F5 either.

    Also, I've noticed that CSS images (such as a background-image used for hover states) are not called from the server until they are needed for rendering. But that introduces a delay on the first use. That used to be an IE problem, but it's been fixed. I got out of the habit from building image preloads into the page, but I might need to start doing it again. Ticks me off - waste of bandwidth to add that to every page.

    I'm doing my best to love Opera 9.5 and am just about there. One feature I can't seem to locate is the Tab/Arrange item in the Tab context menu (nor can I apply Cascade, Tile). I'm using a Mac...perhaps that's the deal. Otherwise, love it.
