Opera 9 rocks! :D

Here's (http://www.opera.com/products/desktop/) an overview of the new features and here's (http://www.opera.com/docs/changelogs/linux/900/) the changelog.

Man, I so *want* to like Opera. I jumped on this as soon as I saw it and installed it over the last beta I tried out. But it still doesn't use my mplayer plugin properly, and it gags while trying to import mail from Thunderbird. Guess I'll stick with Flock for now.

Opera is awesome and my next favorite Browser next to Firefox but I have to admit there are many things that I like about Opera. I find I use them both about equally.

I only wish Opera had Adblock Plus and Adblock Filterset.G Updater.

Hi

Can you try something for me quickly please, go to a wide page, or just any page and zoom in untill you can see the bottom scroll bar and then use middle click panning to pann to the right. I can't pann to the right, the curser changes, and nothing happens

I'm normally a firefox user, have been for many years. I'm just trying Opera 9. Does it have an option to have bookmarks on the bar like firefox does rather than having to go into bookmarks?

Edit: just found it

View -> Toolbars -> Personal Bar

i went from opera(win) to firefox(win) to firefox(nix) to swiftfox(nix) and this does sound like it offers me everything i need to make a switch back but why is it so damn ugly out of the box, i cant find a good gnome gtk type theme for it

I upgraded from Opera 9.00 beta 2 on my XPsp2 the only problem is I ended up with two Operas so I had to reconfigure the new Opera and delete the beta.

I don't want to repeat this on Ubuntu is there somthing I should do different to avoid this step or do I do the same again?

It would be nice if Ubuntu had Opera included in the update manager.

Opera has some features that no other browsers have btw, free email, widgets, faster in page rendering then Firefox or Epiphany. Great Spell Checker.

I read that there are Adblock-like extensions but I have yet to try them.

IMHO it's very nice:

- small, fast, pages render great.
- the tango theme rocks, in gnome it blends perfectly and looks awesome.
- it uses a lot less memory that ff, in case you'r interested
- works great on AMD64 out of the box (just install static qt3: sudo dpkg --force-architechture -i opera9.deb)

CONS:
- it has some weird stuff like confusing menus for adjusting preferences, and interface font isn't antialiased (weird, pages are: should check on qt stuff)
- not open software, if you care.

Bruce89, Opera, not Firefox is the main subject here without any gnome gtk themes. Firefox integrates very well in ubuntu..

Anyone wanting to see how well opera can integrate into ubuntu desktop, check out the Tango CL (http://my.opera.com/community/customize/skins/info/?id=3465) theme.

it's actually the top rated theme at this time...

great, These new features are quite useful.

Did anyone else get an error msg from dpkg saying that it needed other software so Opera 9.0 could be installed?, i got that, but it installed the update anyway.

SlugO
June 20th, 2006, 10:07 PM
But that is a theme, it just emulates integration, applications not written for a particular platform will look bad on all platforms.
They look good enough with the available themes.
And besides, the fact that it's not written particularly for Gnome etc is a small price to pay when you're able to get a great browser on all the platforms on the same day.

Not ugly, not heavy, so in this case I don't care that it's not a native Gnome app 8-)

I removed the beta before I installed the final version and it worked fine. As long as you don't purge your config should still work as well. Mine did at any rate. The menus no longer have that funky look about them either. It looks pretty slick to me.

I've been using it ever since I had internet...I remember the really cool logo Opera 5 had and the publicity campaign around Opera 7.
I love everything about the thing, it's highly tweakable, it's fast, it had tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking and addblocking long before any other browser and gave a great support for downloads where IE and Navigator are still working with those annoying pop up windows without any options for control.

What can I say, old loves never fade, I've tried FF and I first downloaded Opera with Navigator, which I tried afterwards, but just give me Opera....

I have been using Opera on windows and now Linux for a few years now for both browsing and email. For those who are new to it make sure you check out the forums on the Opera site. They are very active and the best place to get help. There are also some good guides and wiki around full of lovely Opera info.

I have my Windows Opera installed on my fat32 date partition and have set my Linux instal to use the sale location for mail,bookmarks,notes,contacts etc.

Ok so let me get this right delete the Beta fist, and all my settings should still work, bookmarks toolbar and bookmarks?

I did the opposite on XPsp2 and I had to reconfigure the new Opera then I deleted the beta.

Thanks for the advice.

Just type ' dpkg -r opera-static ' ...then dpkg -i the new opera .deb that you've downloaded.

I can't answer for your settings, bookmarks and toolbar... but all of mine were right where I left them after I removed the beta deb and installed the final version. Just remember not to purge and you should be fine.

Go Opera! Firefox is where the hype is but Opera is where the real innovation is.

I've been using Opera for five years, since 5.0. At the time, Opera already had a search bar, multiple document interface and a very good download manager. Since then, I've seen them add mouse gestures, a full featured mail client, IRC client, newsfeed reader, SVG support, BitTorrent support, among a slew of other things. Many of these features have since been copied by rivals, but many remain unique. If you want to see the future direction for web browsers, use Opera.

On top of that, because the entire featureset is implemented by the one company (ie. no extensions), everything works consistently, quickly, and reliably. Also, the toolbars, keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures can be customised easily to do quite powerful things. If you still think you can't live without extensions, there's UserJS and now Widgets!

If you still think you can't live without extensions, there's UserJS and now Widgets! Opera doesn't have the smart cookie management that Firefox has. It doesn't have NoScript, which allows you to turn off Flash and Javascript for every site except the ones you whitelist. I didn't see any Adblock capabilities in there--only a pop-up blocker.

There a host of extensions in Firefox that are either impossible or no easy feat to implement in Opera, and I still prefer a drop-down menu of search engines instead of remembering a bunch of abbreviations.

Opera is not superior to Firefox any more than Firefox is superior to Opera. Different users have different needs. Firefox isn't just hype. It fills a need for many users--you just happen not be one of those users.

Opera does use a dropdown menu for search that you can customize and add searchengines to, just like in Firefox.

It has flash block and also adblock (but I have not figured how to install it yet, I started a thread on it here in the Cafe)

I use both Opera and Firefox equally they are both great and both have great strengths and both have weaknesses.

I am glad I can use both on Ubuntu.

I honestly use both sometimes even at the same time, Opera does come with a default spellcheck that is better then any spellcheck extension for Firefox.

I am using both now I jump to different browsers on different workspaces for different applications.

Also, I know there's a dropdown search in Opera, but it doesn't appear to be very extensible.

aysiu, now you know that what you request will not work as good in Opera as in Firefox, so don't expect a one for one match that would be unreasonable. As a firefox and opera user I will point out the obvious...

Contrary to what some Opera evangelists believe (I'm not talking about you, who clearly have an open mind about browser choices), Opera does not offer the ultimate web browsing experience.

It offers a good web browsing experience that suits the needs of many. So does Firefox. That's it. There are many choices, and you pick the one that suits you.

Firefox users will never ditch their extensions for Opera.

I got myself in a little mess...
Looking at all these posts I decided to install opera.
I went to the site and downloaded the file, opened it (it happened automaticaly, I don't remember which program, I use xubuntu) and all was well.
I go to thunderbird, get mail, click on an HTML and opera opens it! not to my likeing I go to see if opera changed my default browser setting but it didn't.
Anyways, to make a long story short, I uninstalled opera 9 completely using synaptic and now when I click on HTML links in thunderbird nothing happens.
Now, I tried to install opera again, this time using synaptic but alas! it says there are dependencies bla bla bla and would not install!
I'm considering re-installing my whole system, I have been warned to install only from the repositories...
Any helpfull hints?

As well as what gfg said, you can restore the Transfers tab to get a small window (as you can restore any tab in Opera). Just right-click the tab and click Restore. Also, you can go to Preferences > Advanced and uncheck "Show close button on each tab" to get a minimise, restore and close button in the top right, like with a normal MDI application.

I find Opera's transfers manager is much much more advanced than Firefox's. In Firefox, you cannot decide where to put the file, and you cannot save it under a different name. Also, I'm not sure if you can resume downloads in Firefox.

i like Opera more then firefox mainly because it's more secure. but, it works alot better too. i would like firefox but it never works.

i block all ads with privoxy or proxomitron, i use the builtin "edit site preferences" which lets me decide what a page can do on a site-by-site basis by right-clicking the page - i block most things by default, then allow cookies if i want them, whether java/script, gif animation and other stuff can run.

i have these bookmarklets which are the extra buttons on the address toolbar which work with one mouse click -

rewind/fast foward (it works if the address has numbers in it - mainly pictures)

wayback machine newest which takes me to the newest stored page of the page i'm on at wayback

wayback search - all the wayback pages

wayback undo takes you out of wayback's domain

Links to this page

list all links on page

bugmenot

cookies which opens the cookie manager

DNS does a DNS Lookup for the page you are on at dnsstuff.com

netcraft OS, Web Server and Hosting History for the page i'm on at netcraft.com

googleanon which anonymises the google cookie so google can't keep track of your searches 8) i like that one

dictionary let you highlight a word and look it up at dictionary.com. if no word is highlighted a box opens and you can type in a word to lookup

thesaurus as above, but uses thesaurus.com

google cache searches the page you are on at google cache

then i also use userjs which is the same thing as firefox extensions. i can't be bothered to list all i have. but, i have a userjs script which lets me use greasemonkey scripts, one lets me download embedded media etc etc.

all i really wanted to say is opera can do as much, or more, then firefox :rolleyes: i didn't even mention the widgets (http://widgets.opera.com/) and some other stuff.

hi, to allow flash for the sites you want first you have to disable javascript - tools>Preferences>advanced>content uncheck the box. then to allow falsh on the sites you want do this -
right-click the page and select 'edit site preferences'>Scripting>enable javascript.

for adblocking i always use an http proxy no matter which browser i use, but you can try importing adblock to the file described in post#1 here vv

opera's search is just like firefox's, but better because you can add any engine you like. to add an engine right-click in the search box you want to add and select 'create search' it will then be a search option in the dropdown.

if you want to add the equivalent of a firefox extension you can look at userjs (http://userjs.org/), or bookmarklets -

or a widget - http://widgets.opera.com/

i have about 30 firefox extensions, but i don't use firefox because if you look you'll find opera can do everything you want.


Opera is not superior to Firefox any more than Firefox is superior to Opera. of cause opera is superior, i thought everyone knew that :mrgreen:
