Opera Browser 9.50 Alpha Released!

Opera Software released Opera Browser 9.50 Alpha (code name Kestrel). I use two primary browsers in my daily basis activities. Opera and Mozilla Firefox. I think I use Opera more than Firefox. I like what Opera offered (including what Kestrel introduced). Of course Opera does not have all features Firefox has, and the vice versa.
If you have plan using this release, you’d probably want to give your attention to some of these things:

  • Get to know Kestrel first (what introduced in this release, the changelog too). Opera Beta Testing page is a good place to start.
  • Backup your Opera settings, bookmark and other preferences first. If you’re not satisfied with this alpha release, you can revert your settings. I just override my installation, and I lost all bookmark, settings, installed widgets, etc. Ouch!
  • Or, you can install it in different location.
  • Read some feedbacks from blog posts, discussion forums, or other blog posts (including Digg)

I have downloaded and installed it. And so far, I LIKE it!


  1. Selamat untuk Team Pengembang Opera.
    Pagi ini, saya mencoba melihat – lihat review dari si Kestrel, dan kebanyakan bilang Kestrel jauh lebih cepat daripada Opera 9 , IE 7 dan FF 2.0.
    Masa sih?
    mau coba install , di LInux sepertinya butuh kesabaran ekstra untuk itu.. khawatir dengan status alpha, saya lebih memilih untuk menunggu.
    Dengan Opera bisa 9 detik membuka situs kusaeni.com , siapa yang peduli?

  2. Opera rock! he.he.
    Since I know this version is better than previous one, I prefer to wait for the next stable release.
    And need more time before slackware version is available to download T_T
