Opera 8 - Virtuelvis

Opera 8 - Virtuelvis: "New features

Opera 8 has a number of new features, and they have gone to great lengths to improve other features. These are the ones I enjoy the most.

* User JavaScript. If you would like to extend a particular web site, or you would like to fix another, User JavaScript is for you. The tutorial should explain it all. This is a biggie. In fact, it’s so big that I registered where I will be hosting a number of scripts that have gone through basic QA.
* Interface clean up: Don’t use mail? Well, you won’t see it. If you don’t use IRC, you won’t see any chat stuff. Create a mail account and Opera adds the appropriate panel and menu. The same goes for newsfeeds.
* Better newsfeed support: Opera now support both Atom and RSS feeds, and has autodetection with a “RSS” button visible in your address bar.
* Fit to Width: If a website insists on being wider than your viewport, FtW is a lifesaver: Activate it, and the horizontal scrollbar vanishes.
* Voice: You can both control Opera by talking to your browser, have webpages read out loud, and interact with X+V applications
* SVG Tiny support: Graphics that scales without flaws to the size you have selected."
