A small, fast, free browser that can run Java via the Java Plug-in using standard <APPLET tags. The latest version is Opera 48.0.2685.52 Last revised/verified: 2017-10-26.
It comes only in a 32-bit version. The 64-bit version has been discontinued. This is the browser I formerly most often myself and my web host (Inter-Corporate) also uses. The Opera icon to use for the 64-bit version. It is one of the few browsers that directly supports RSS feeds. Dragonfly is a tool similar to Firefox Firebug to help you figure out how CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) style sheet entries interact to decide the attributes of a given bit of text.

With Opera version 20, many familiar features have disappeared or are seriously hiding. Opera threw away its engine and wrote a new browser with a shell wrapped around the Chrome engine.
|Browser Colgroup Support|
Those browsers marked with an x all have a bug. They will not render <col class="xxxx">s correctly. The ones with a tick render it correctly. The Opera people say this is a feature not a bug. The language lawyers claim the W3 spec says that the browser is supposed to ignore the color attribute from the <col class. Logically, I think the <col styles should apply to the entire column, but not to <th rows. In addition Firefox, SeaMonkey, Safari and Flock also ignore the <col align attribute. Opera and IE render it properly.
Firefox, SeaMonkey and Opera support almost all the HTML5 entities. Chrome and Safari support many of them.
|Style Test||Alignment Test|
|On Every row||style||alignment|
If both cells in the left hand Style Test column are the same colour, then your browser (the one you are using now to view this page) supports <col class=.
If both cells in the right hand Alignment Test column right-align, then your browser supports <col align= correctly.
Dreamweaver lets you apply a css style to all rows individually. Last revised/verified: 2018-05-06
Opera has an optional turbo mode. You can try it out to see if it speeds things up. It will help most if your Internet connection is very slow. It works by caching the web pages you visit on the Opera server and relaying them to you compressed and encrypted. You can turn the feature on and off with the Opera turbo toggle in the main menu.
