Opera 9.6 Beta 1 for Mac Changelog

Release Notes

This is a beta version of Opera. Please use it only on properly backed up computers.

New and improved features

Opera Link

Custom search engines and typed history (typed history is only the history you explicitly type or select from the address bar) are now joining bookmarks, speed dials, personal bar, and notes in Opera Link.

Feed Preview

Now you can preview an RSS/Atom feed before subscribing.

Opera Mail

Low Bandwidth Mode
Low Bandwidth Mode is a setting on mail accounts that makes Opera Mail use as little bandwidth as possible.
  • For IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol), this means that Opera will only synchronise new messages and it will not fetch message attachments unless requested
  • For POP (Post Office Protocol), Opera will not fetch more than the first 100 lines of a message unless requested
Follow/Ignore threads and contacts
Follow and Ignore are new features for users that receive numerous messages. It makes it easier to dismiss unimportant messages and easier to recognise important messages.
Activate this feature by selecting Follow/Ignore in the email context menu (or click the message subject header), then select either Follow Thread or Ignore Thread. Also, you can click the names in the From or To headers to enable the following or ignoring of contacts.
Go To Thread
You can now also use "Go to thread" which means that you can view only the messages from that thread. This is useful for those that employ flat view.
