Everyone here at on the Desktop Team has been working hard to add new features to your favorite browser, and here's what you can look forward to in 9.60:
Custom search engines and typed history* are now joining bookmarks, speed dials, personal bar, and notes in Opera Link.
Now you can preview an RSS/Atom feed before subscribing.
Opera Mail: Low Bandwidth Mode
Low Bandwidth Mode is a setting on mail accounts that makes Opera Mail use as little bandwidth as possible. For IMAP, this means that Opera will only synchronise new messages and it will not fetch message attachments unless requested. For POP, Opera will not fetch more than the first 100 lines of a message unless requested.
Opera Mail: Follow/Ignore threads and contacts
Follow and Ignore are new features for users that receive a lot of messages. It makes it easier to dismiss unimportant messages and easier to recognise important messages.
Opera Mail: Go To Thread
You can now also "Go to thread" which means that you can view only the messages from that thread. Useful for those that uses flat view.
* Typed history is only the history you explicitly type or select from the address bar
WARNING: These are development snapshots: they contain the latest changes, but they also have severe known issues, including crashes and data loss situations. In fact, they may not work at all.
- Follow/ignore thread misses some messages
