Changelog for Opera 6.0 for Windows Beta 1

What's new?

Opera version 6.0 is now available for download.

Opera 6.0 supports the Unicode Worldwide Character Standard, and comes with a new set of help files. Both single and multiple document interface (SDI/ MDI) are supported at start-up, and switching between document windows is made easier with the enhanced "Ctrl+Tab" feature. Hotlist panels can easily be added or edited. Hotclicking (i.e. double-, triple-, or quadruple-clicking a word, phrase, or paragraph) produces a pop-up menu with powerful tools such as searching, encyclopedia look-up, and translation. The new personal bar makes it even easier to organize and personalize bookmarks and searches. Opera's "Preferences" has been reorganized, and image display has been improved.
