- Opera Link synchronizes your bookmarks, Speed Dial, and notes between Opera on different computers, and even links to Opera Mini on your phone!
- Enhanced address bar searches your entire browsing history, including the contents of each page.
- Security enhancements: malware protection, improved fraud protection, and support for Extended Validation SSL Certificates
- New rendering engine with improved site compatibility and performance.
- Opera Dragonfly, the long-awaited tools for web developers.
