OperaView

Opera really hasn’t made too much news after they decided to stop charging for the browser experience that they deliver. I’m sure that since they are still around more than just a few folks like using Opera for viewing things Online. Well, I have some good news for those folks and it is called OperaView.

Here is what the author of the extension has to say about it:

OperaView is an extension for Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, Flock and Netscape Browser 8 which is very similar (and actually based on) IE View.

Even if you using Mozilla browser all the time, sometimes it is need for view the page, you are looking at, in Opera browser (especially if you are a web developer). OperaView extension makes that process easier by adding item View This Page in Opera to the page context menu and item Open Link Target in Opera to the link context menu. So if you would like to quick view page in Opera, just right click somewhere on the page and choose new menu item.

OperaView works fine under Windows and under Linux (where would be necessary to manually type path to Opera browser). It is currently not working with Mozilla Suite under Linux.

So now feel free to switch over to Opera anytime you feel the itch to. There is no reason why you should bound yourself to one browsing experience. Give it a shot, and let me know what you think.
