Opera 8 now available for Mac OS X
Posted on 16-Jun-2005 21:26 | Tags Filed under: News



Opera Software has released Opera 8 for Macintosh, available for Mac OS X versions 10.2 and higher. According to the company it is faster than ever before, this Web surfing package gives Macintosh users Opera's extensive functionality and an optional 15 languages standard upon download.

Opera touts its latest Mac release as the most Macintosh-like version ever. The browser has improved its support for Apple's Human Interface Guidelines and added Full Keyboard Access functionality. The Opera browser has been available for Macintosh since 2001.

"With Opera, Mac users can surf fast, comfortably and efficiently using a full-featured browser that is not tied to the operating system (OS)," says Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "Rather than incurring costly upgrades to your OS to get the newest features, Opera allows Mac users to browse, e-mail, download and chat using one program, requiring minimal system resources due to Opera's small size."

Opera 8 for Macintosh includes the same functionality as Opera 8 for Windows and Linux, which was released in mid April 2005. Opera 8 introduced security solutions, such as the new security field that indicates the level of security and the certificate-owner of a secure site. Native Scalable Vector Graphic support (SVG 1.1 Tiny), introduced in Opera 8, is also included in the Macintosh version. Other features offered in Opera 8 include a "delete private data" option, a "trash can" that saves closed pages and blocked pop-ups during a session, and Opera's Extensible Rendering Architecture (ERA) which automatically re-adjusts page content to fit the window width.

Opera 8 for Macintosh is available for download in Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese. Opera will automatically provide a user interface in the language the computer is configured to use.
