Opera 8 for Windows

Opera 8 is the first major release of a browser since <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/internet/0,39024165,39173153,00.htm">Mozilla Firefox</a> hit the Web. There are plenty of changes in the new version, but Opera hasn’t abandoned much; it’s more a case of reworking the browser's feature set to make it easier to use and understand. We’re reviewing the Windows version of Opera 8, although it will also be available for Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. Opera 8 is free to download, and as of 20 September 2005 no longer comes with an ad banner that you pay to remove.
