has released an update to their alternative Web browser for Mac, Opera v6.0.2. The company has also stated plans to bring Opera 7, the latest generation of its Web browser, to the Mac later this year.
Changes to Opera 6.0.2 include speed optimizations, a smaller footprint, improved security, the ability to work in Kiosk Mode, and a long list of improvements and bug fixes.
Opera 6.0.2 has been localized in English, French, Japanese and German languages, and the developer plans to offer other localized versions in the new couple of weeks.
Opera can be downloaded and will work for free with a sponsored advertising banner. To operate Opera without the banner in place, users are required to pay US$39 for a registration code. Registered users will get a free Opera 7 upgrade once it’s released and other benefits.
