DailyTech - Opera 9.0 Preview Coming Today, FireFox 2.0 Alpha Friday: "The latest version of the Opera Internet browser will have several new features that should grab the attention of users
Opera will be releasing a second preview of Opera 9.0 sometime today, with support for 'widgets,' BitTorrent downloads, and other modifications that will hopefully keep Opera competitive with the popular Mozilla Firefox browser. Widgets are something like small browser windows that take information from the Internet to display it on the user's desktop. And the company hopes that by adding BitTorrent support, users will have an easier and more efficient way to download large files.
The final version is set to be launched sometime in June 2006. Mozilla Foundation also anticipates to release FireFox 2.0 Alpha 1 this Friday, according to the project Wiki. "
