The browser, also called Opera, is in the beta-testing phase that precedes the release of the finished 5.0 edition of the browser. The releases mark the fifth beta for the Classic Mac OS version and the third for the Mac OS X edition.
Along with a host of bug fixes, the new browsers add a handful of new features including new ways to manage cookies, drag and drop downloads, a 30-day banner-ad-free mode, interface enhancements and more.
Opera's browsers hold just under 1% of the worldwide Web browser market, according to a study conducted by WebSideStory earlier in the month. However, the study found that in some European countries the company controls as much as almost 6% of the market.
