Advertisements

Unregistered users have the choice between two types of ads:

If you choose the new format you will get text-based ads from Google that are relevant to the content of the page you visit. The currently visited page URL is used for finding the best ad and corresponding related searches. Google and Opera are committed to protecting the privacy of our users. Read about the Opera Browser Google Ads for more information about the system (and the measures we take to protect you).

Inline search

Pressing . or / starts an inline find without a search field. This is deactivated with a one second timeout or by pressing Escape.

JavaScript options

Added options for allowing scripts to size, move, raise (i.e. focus), lower, and set status bar text. This options is available in Multimedia preferences.

Middle mouse click support and panning

There is a new middle-click configuration dialog. The dialog will show the first time middle-click is used and allow the user to configure how Opera handles middle-clicks on links. Default is "Open page in background". Shift+Middle-click will bring up the configuration dialog again.

Opera also has support for horizontal panning.
