Opera Software The Opera team has released version 10.10 of their feature-rich browser. This is the first Opera release to come with Opera Unite, which combines the web browser with a web server, so that users can share data directly between one another, without the need for a third party.

8. OperaShow. Not sure if it's still in existence, but Opera supports (or supported?) the ability to create PowerPoint-style presentations using standard HTML & a little bit of OperaShow-specific markup (for defining pages/slides, etc).

9. Single-key keyboard shortcuts - the main feature that I still miss to this day. Related to that, Opera has a keyboard shortcut for pretty much everything.

10. The ability to restore un-submitted form data when you restart the browser after a crash.

It is still there. Just turned off by default. Preferences > Advanced > Shortcuts > Enable single-key shortcuts

Sorry, wasn't clear - I'm mainly using Firefox these days and meant that the single-key shortcuts are main feature I miss from Opera.

Yes, OperaShow is still there - after I read this (here in Korea) at work this afternoon, I checked and thought what a great tool this might be for teaching English (or anything else) . . .

I'm writing this late at night after a successful expedition to the local Tesco in search of a certain alcopop, after which I came home and thought: "Hmm . . . Opera!" - removed 9.62 (because 10.0 and 10.01 were cack on my laptop. It is still happily running Mandriva 2008.1 and KDE 3.5.x, and I love it dearly) and installed 10.10. It is performing flawlessly, its fast and there is no "stickiness" of pages as there was often in the 9.xx versions.

I have been running Opera in various incarnations since its 4.x days and have never looked back. However, I am an unfaithful bugger - I keep using SeaMonkey for various things as well, and this is also excellent.

In fact, just as I was becoming afraid that I might have to upgrade the laptop to Mandriva 2009.1 (which is thoroughly excellent, by the way, once you make certain "adjustments" - mine installed KDE 4.3.x with GTK widgets, eww . . .), along comes this new version of Opera and everything is rosy with 2008.1 again.

Mandriva. Opera. KDE 3.5.x. OpenOffice and GIMP. What an amazing combination for someone teaching English in Korea.

Opera, I doff my hat to you. I've been with you for yonks and you only ever get better!

Just to add . . . under Opera, press F11 to toggle between fullscreen (OperaShow) and normal view.

Fullscreen Opera . . . wunderbar!!!
