Opera has today released the 9.6 version of the desktop web browser software. The web browser is available for Windows, Linux, and Mac based computers, with 38 localized versions.
The new version offers numerous new features, including the Opera Link tool, which synchronizes browser bookmarks and options among different computers and/or operating systems, as well as visual previews for RSS feeds. The email client boasts a new highly optimized "low bandwidth mode" and message prioritizing.
Opera’s speed has also been increased from the previous version, offering an experience similar to that of Firefox 3, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer 8 beta. Opera 9.6 can be downloaded here.
