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

I've used Opera on and off over the years and must say it's a pretty good product. I'm using Firefox(3) mostly nowadays, though.

Opera (not this latest version) runs well on my mom's 6 year old PC and I have a version of it for my Nintendo wii as well. No problems, although I don't use it as heavily as Firefox.

It also seems really good for non tech-savvy kids (rare these days, I know) who download lots of stuff because of it's built-in BitTorrent.

Will try this new version when I have the time.
