Default Opera 9.20 released

You can download the new Opera, which incorporates security enhancements and some new features. All PC versions available, and there are also versions for handhelds and other gadgets.

KT,

That was fun. I started my Opera 9.00 and asked it to search for updates, and it said that it had an unknown language setting, and couldn't check. Looking at my preferences, I discover my language is coded [en-US], which I suspect was the default when I installed 9.00. I looked for other choices, and learned that [en] and [en-BR] were possible choices, but not [en-US] on that list. Ah, well, [en] must be the one.

Next, it told me Opera 9.02 was available, and I took it, but it turned out it was the right thing, 9.20, which I installed successfully. Then I thought of getting rid of the annoying "Error Console" for various JAVA and other web site errors, which I was able to do with Opera Help assistance.

So, thank you KT, I am up to date with Opera and I got rid of the "Error Console" popup window.

David

Glad it worked out in the end.

It is also available for Linux.

Didn't think that "Speed Dial" would get much use but as it turns out it is very handy.

Really? What do you use it for? (I assume you have broadband service?)

Nothing to do with dialling, just clicking on a thumbnail of a web page.
Much like a regular bookmark really.
As it is there are a few sites I like to visit first thing when I start the day; my blogs, some news e.t.c.
Of course the DTP forum is one of those sites too!

When a new tab is opened you are presented with thumbnails of sites that you specify. I just tried it, and it's an excellent feature. http://help.opera.com/Windows/9.20/en/speeddial.html

Aha — thanks. Guess I had better take a closer look; that does sound handy.
