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.

Who else hates the new skin?

I recommend D.T.A (I prefer slim, but there's a regular-sized version as well): http://my.opera.com/community/customize/skins/?search=d_t_a&x=0&y=0

I just upgraded, and it kept Dimple as my default skin when the browser reloaded. So far, this is feeling a bit faster than before. The only problems I had were that the placement of the New Tab button changed, and the search engine for the Speed Dial page changed from Google to Ask.com. Easy fixes. I'm liking the new drop-down list in the URL bar.

Not a fan of the new skin. The icons with it are horribly unprofessional.
