> What is the advantage if I use Opera 6 against Konquerer?
Opera gives you the choice of an SDI or MDI interface. Basically this means
that if you look at more than one web page at the same time, you can have
them in separate windows on the desktop (SDI) or in subwindows inside the
main Opera window (MDI).
Opera allows you to change between using the web page's own fonts and
colours or your fonts and colours at a single click.
You can define the font face and size for normal text, each of the heading
styles, preformatted text style, form input field text, and so on.
You can open a Bookmarks toolbar to the left of the main window (like
Mozilla) and drag and drop your Bookmarks within it.
You can browse in Opera without using the mouse, solely using the keyboard.
You can save a web page as text from Opera's File menu.
You can leave out the 'www.', '.com', '.net', '.co.uk' etc. part of the URL
and Opera will figure it out.
You can configure as large a RAM cache and disk cache as you like and Opera
will save your pages for next time you run the program.
Opera understands keywords for search engines: 'g "Opera browser"' will
search Google using the words "Opera browser". There's also a Google Search
input box on the toolbar to speed up searches. Opera 6 final also has an
input box to seach www.alltheweb.com.
You can configure which servers from which you'll accept cookies on a
per-server basis, and you can have Opera ask you what you want to do with
each cookie as it comes in.
Opera can import your Netscape, KDE and Internet Explorer bookmarks.
You can assign your own sounds to events, for example when a download
finishes or when Opera starts up.
You can enable or disable frames and inline frames.
Opera is skinnable and comes with several default looks and button sets.
You can also select which fonts you want it to use in the menus, dialogs
You can configure which of the toolbars is displaying and the position of
each within the main window.
You can Zoom any window in Opera to almost any percentage from 20 to 1000%.
And this means graphics too, not just fonts.
When you download a file, a separate window opens showing you all of the
concurrent downloads, plus downloads you've done recently. You can stop,
resume or restart downloads with a click of the mouse.
The Transfers (downloads) and History windows are the same as any other
window in Opera.
You can move between windows with Ctrl+Left and Right arrows, and back and
forward in each window's history with Alt+Left and Right arrows, so it's
easy to get to exactly where you want to.
You can set up all your windows then save the setup. You can restart Opera
with the same windows open as when you closed it down.
You can use 'mouse gestures'. For example, to move back through the history
in any window, just right-click and drag to the left. To move forward,
right-click and drag to the right. To reload the page, right-click then
drag up, then down. To create a new browser window, right-click then drag
down. And so on.
Opera is extremely configurable, having no less than 27 tabs on its
The Opera Help file is excellent.
