    Looks really cool... I hope it can display sites as IE does... otherwise it's of no use

    Wow!!! This thing Opera is looking like a killer thing. I used it somewhere around 7.5 or something. Didn't like it much and moved on to Konqueror but this thing is looking great. Does it have all these features in its Linux version as well? It looks like a Firefox killer to me.

    Haven't used opera for quite some time now. Reading this post I can hear opera calling me back. Can't wait anymore to try it out. Opera simply rocks for me.

    I downloaded Opera 9 Preview 2 today and it is missing a major feature. No adblock??? I searched around and found various workarounds but nothing concrete and simple. How can I block ads without manually editing any files.

    well eddie Opera 9 does have content blocker of some sort...though not as gr8 as adblock still something is better tan nothing.Also u can use Admuncher..an excellent adblocking tool (and bandwidth saver!)for all browsers!

    Admuncher doesn't work on Linux my friend :(
    I can use something like Privoxy but apps like these are very aggressive in their work and it hampers my normal working. Anyways, I'll be waiting for adblock and then check Opera again. Till then Konqueror rules for me :)

    Is it available for Linux? If it is then please tell me where to find it. I don't mind using the older one either.

    Opera 9 is a lot better than what I thought considering its still in beta. I will use more of it. Hopefully missing features like adblock and improved voice commands are included again. Or is voice commands still there? I can't seem to find it?
    ANd yeah widgets and bittorrent seem a good inclusion :D .

    If you read my other posts you would have known that I am using Linux and this thing works only on Windows but I will be interested in these "list of keywords" you are talking about and how to use them.
