Opera Software Opera 9.5 has been released, beating Firefox 3.0 to the punch which is supposed to be released soon as well. The marketing speak: "Opera's cross-device expertise, support for open Web standards and commitment to speed and performance culminate to create the most powerful Opera browser yet. Making its desktop debut in Opera 9.5, Opera Link blurs the boundaries between computers and mobile phones by enabling a seamless Web experience from device to device." Get it from Opera.com.

I don't really understand the objections some people have to Opera (the closed source, the skins?) but if you've been turned off by it in the past, I recommend trying it again. It "feels" much faster than 9.27, and most of the bugs in the beta have been handled. In my experience, sites that won't display correctly are much rarer now.

I haven't tried Firefox 3 yet, but I still think I'll be hooked on Opera: it's a beautiful browser!
