Opera free one day only
Opera today is for its internet web browsing application until midnight CET, providing everyone a chance to try out the alternative web browser without any advertisements. Opera, an alternative to Netscape, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox, offers advanced security, such as 128-bit SSL, Transport Layer Security, protection from phishing attacks, built-in protection against spyware, etc. as well as supports open standards such as CSS 2.1, XHTML 1.1, HTML 4.01, WML 2.0, ECMAScript, DOM 2 and SVG 1.1 tiny. Opera also incorporates Small-Screen Rendering (SSR), which provides a full internet experience on mobile phones by reformatting the page to fit the screen size. Opera 8 offers a fresh new look, pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, and more. It requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and is otherwise available for $40 (free codes offered through end of today).
