Warp on the Web
With Reports on Web Browsers for OS/2

A Quick Look at Opera

July 21, 2001

by Dave Watson

Summary: Early beta of mature commercial ($40) browser from Norway. (There are no reported incidents of burning or pillaging non-users.) Versions for many operating systems, including serviceable Win16 version, but this is the first native OS/2 version. Advertised as "smaller and faster" than other browsers. This one uses Odin APIs, and claims to work with Win32 plugins.

Source: http://www.opera.com

Version: 5.1 (beta)

Installation: Very good (needs WarpIN). Requires Odin.

Features: Interesting approach of nesting browser windows in a main frame. Good article at http://macarlo.com/opera5os2jul1001.htm.

Problems: Flaky. No Java yet, no mail, no instant messaging - yet.

Recommendation: 32bit plugins should be very useful, and deserves further testing as the beta matures. This is one to watch.


Take a look at the browser overview with quick looks at other web browsers for OS/2.

Send your own reports of observations, tips, problems, tricks, and wishes to Dave@SCOUG.com.
