    This is not Neowin's Exclusive, infact this news was out on my website before they did.

    And the information is just from pre release version. And for your information, the opera.com has not released this version offcialy.

    And of ur system crashes, they are not responsible.

    And for more information with ScreenShot :

    "too much killeth the human"
    well we all know about your site
    but advertising it thru each and every knook and corner gets annoying
    as far as my post is concerned i go to neowin.net for news and not to your site
    and yes if you got the news earlier then you should have posted here
    well let me tell you

    From what I hear at the opera forums, it seems to be a rebadged 7.60 beta.

    When work on 7.6 finishes they might call it 8.0

    Can't be sure though

    Whats all this sudden hype about Opera 8.0. All these days I was getting the 7.6 preview. Have they now publishing the 7.6 beta as 8.0 beta. If they do so it has be a big improvement to jump from 7.54 to 8.0.

    Anyway the screenshot didn't seem anything special.

    Duplicate-Where?

    Well, I'm for opera.
    Opera's V7.5, and the previous ones had an option "Duplicate Page".
    I think it is missing in v7.6.

    Why did they do it.
    I thought it was a nice.

    @pallab,
    You talk abt the small download size, remember the help files are not included and it has online help one, unlike firefox.

    Also the for the voice commands we will have to download a additional 2.5mb.

    I agree opera now has support for gmail, but i tried opening gmail.com in both Firefox and opera 8 , FF opened much faster. opera took time to open.

    Another defect that i found in opera is that while composing posts here, we can wrap the typed text. For eg, if i type Doctor Grudge and want it be make bold i cant just select the text and click on bold button.

    The trash can facility is good.Also the clickable icon that appears on the address bar of sites that offer RSS feeds is cool...
