Opera 8 for Windows

Opera for Windows [ Win 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP ] Surf the Internet in a safer, faster, and easier way. The most full-featured Internet power tool on the market, Opera includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches with advanced functions like Opera's groundbreaking E-mail program, RSS Newsfeeds and IRC chat. Because we know that our users have different needs, you can customize the look and content of your Opera browser with a few clicks of the mouse. Key features in Opera 8 Tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking Opera pioneered tabs and pop-up blocking ages ago. But they're still key features that more and more people start enjoying. With tabs you can open multiple pages within the same application window. Opera lets you control whether to block all pop-ups, or open only the ones that you have requested. Integrated search Search your favorite sites, for example Google, eBay, or Amazon without having to go to their Web pages. Use the integrated search window or search directly in the address field using shortcuts (e.g. writing "g Opera" in the address field will search for "Opera" using Google). Security Stay away from spy-ware, viruses, and other malicious applications that silently attack your computer while you are surfing the Web. For example, Opera displays security information inside the address bar, located next to the padlock icon that indicates the level of security present on a site. Opera 8 also provides protection against phishing attacks and automatically checks for security updates. Speed We're holding on to our claim: "The Fastest Browser on Earth". In Opera 8, further improvements have been made in the way the browser reads pages to allow you to fly the Web. Password manager Opera's password manager, the Wand, remembers your usernames and passwords so you will not have to. The password manager can store more than one username and password combination for each page, and will let you choose which one to use if multiple combinations are stored. Customization Using the 'appearance' dialog you can make Opera look almost any way you want. Move buttons and search fields, add and remove toolbars, and so forth. Opera skins can change the look of your browser by giving it the icons and buttons of your choice. Voice Opera is the first browser to prepare for a future of Web sites offering interactive, voice-enabled shopping and booking systems. You can browse the Web using spoken commands, such as "Opera next link", "Opera back", or "Opera speak". The latter command will make Opera read Web page content and e-mail messages to you aloud ,adding usability as either a screen reader or advanced dictionary. Voice is currently offered in English and works on Windows 2000 and XP. A headset with a microphone is required to use Voice. Additional features Full support for Gmail Support for Atom newsfeeds First Web browser to natively support Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
