Opera 6.0 finalized, ready for download

Opera Software ASA has released a final version of their Opera 6.0 Web browser.

Opera is an "alternative" Web browser that's designed to be fast, small, easy to use, and compliant with all Internet standards. It requires Mac OS X (10.1 or later) or Mac OS 8.6-9.x. Opera 6 for Mac includes major changes since Opera 5, including faster rendering speed, improved font switching for international Web pages, some user interface fixes, a new autosave pages feature, and a shared library for developers, according to Mary Lambert, product line manager desktop, Opera Software ASA.. Developers can contact Opera to embed this library on Mac applications requiring a rendering engine. Opera 6 for Mac also includes local language support.

The browser is available for free in an ad-sponsored version. If you download it and want to remove the banner ad, you can register it for US$29 ($10 off the regular price), receive a free upgrade to version 7, get access personal support via e-mail, and free OperaMail Premium for six months (from the day Opera 7 is available).

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
