Opera releases its latest Windows browser

Opera Software's latest version of its internet browser for Windows offers increased speed and features as well as a slightly smaller download size than the previous version.

Opera 7 offers a host of new innovations, including a links panel that features all the links on a particular page, and a "fast forward" feature that takes users to the next page they are most likely to visit.

The latest version also has what Opera is calling "spatial navigation", a feature that allows users to gain access to links and other navigational tools on a Web page by using the shift and arrow keys on their keyboards.

It also boasts "the wand", a one-click login feature to password-protected sites, a new navigation bar, the ability to download a new skin, or look, an updated e-mail client and small-screen rendering feature that allows Web developers to test and see how their pages will look on smaller mobile devices.

Opera 7 is a 3.4Mbyte download, compared with Opera 6's 3.5Mbyte download size.

Users willing to look at an ad banner on their browser can download Opera 7 for free from www.opera.com. Otherwise, an ad-free version in available for $39 (£24).
