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.

And I think this is a superb release.

The skin is a welcome change; but of course as a change it will not be welcomed by all and being largely an exercise in aesthetics its never going to command a 100% (or close to it) popularity. That is of course what user configurable/downloadable skins are for.

It's certainly faster and more functional than 9.2x and having discovered the resizing Speeddial tweak a while back I'm even happier with it.

Nice to see it finally out.

I like it, I even like the new skin. And of course, if someone doesn't like the skin, they can easily change it. There are a lot of good skins (and also some crappy ones) available.
