Wow they keep releasing often this year.
Any sign of a javascript compiler yet?
Firefox and Chrome will steal even more of Opera's market share soon...

Personally, I just love Opera.
IMHO, its far better than Chrome.

Opera has some niche features; I keep it installed all time in my machine.

There aren't many features added with this release unless you're an M2 user. I've encountered 0 issues after heavy usage. A good solid update...as usual.

The scroll marker seems to be a good idea. Haven't played with it enough yet to really cast a judgment, though.

I set the new scroll marker utility to "2" with opera:config - and I'm loving it. Whenever I scroll, up or down, it marks the previous top or bottom of the window with a gray arrow and rule, but just for a few seconds. This is really helpful in re-orienting my eye to continue reading.

I really overlooked the new scroll marker. Thanks for the reminder tedster. It's a great visual cue, especially for forums like WebmasterWorld.

Because of some virus in Windows XP, I'm unable to install any recent versions of Opera in my laptop. IE is corrupted. Just wondering, if Opera has some dependency or problem with IE. This is error, I getting:
Opera 9.52 Installer Information
Internal Error 2755. 110,
C:\DOCUME~1\aJ\LOCALS~1\Temp\_is66\Operainstaller.msi

Its sad. Right now Firefox also virus infected and gone wild, only Chrome is behaving properly!

That's nice and thank you Mitchman.
Actually, I'd encrypted ~/temp directory to avoid trojans, if I can.
I'd no idea, this is what preventing Opera installation.

Well, Opera is now installed. It looks great. Really amazing, that Opera has sustained independently. As a side note, my favorite editor Homesite+ got killed. Coming to browsers, I think Firefox is not predomidant choice now; folks may consider Opera, Safari and Chrome.
