Opera Software have released Opera 9. The update includes a number of new features including:

  • Integrated BitTorrent downloader.
  • Preview the contents of a tab by hovering the mouse pointer over its title. (I often have a dozen or more tabs open so this feature really appeals to me).
  • Apple-inspired downloadable widgets.
  • New content blocker — “Block content” option is available from the page context menu.

Opera is quite some way behind Firefox and Internet Explorer in the popularity stakes, but it’s good to see another software developer offering an alternative browser.
