Opera Version 9 Available

Opera's version 9 is now available. According to their web site, you should now be able to:
  • download a large file using BitTorrent without needing a separate BitTorrent application
  • add your favorite search engine
  • set preferences by site
  • use more advanced text editing features
  • block specific types of content, e.g., images or advertisements
  • see a thumbnail of a web site when you have multiple tabs open
  • use Opera Widgets
Widgets are small programs that can run while Opera is open -- calendars, clocks, games, news, direct access to specific web services like Pandora or IP lookup. It is similar to Google's Gadgets in their Google Desktop.
