Opera 24 Lets You Preview Open Tabs

Norwegian developer Opera Software just rolled out Opera 24 to the public. The cool thing about this latest release is that it comes with a tab preview function.

Place the mouse cursor on top of tab and the browser lets you peek into its contents. This means that you don’t have to switch to a tab to view its content.

I find it more useful to open lots of tabs. Consequently, I end up with lots and lots of tabs in my web browser. And because there are lots of tabs, I sometimes forget which one I have to access. Opera Software updated its web browser to version 24, introduced tab previews, and addressed this annoying situation.

When you place the mouse cursor on a tab, the browser lets you peek into its contents. In my case, I can use this new feature to more easily find the tab I have to access. Instead of switching from tab to tab in a frantic attempt to find the one I need, I can just use the preview function to browse through my open tabs and find the one I need.

Here’s an alternative use for Opera 24’s tab preview function. Say you’re working on something and you’re also on Facebook. You can take a glimpse at your Facebook without having to switch to it. You can work and, from time to time, take a peek at your facebook.

In related news, Opera Software recently signed a licensing agreement with Microsoft. As part of this agreement, Opera Mini will become the default web browser for Microsoft’s existing feature phones and Asha phones portfolio.

“We continue to sell and support classic first and feature phones as well as the Asha range, which have performed well with millions of people who want new mobile experiences at lower price points,” said Rich Bernardo, head of legacy business, Phones, Microsoft. “The agreement with Opera will enable us to provide continuity of service as we transition from Xpress Browser to Opera Mini.”

“This is a great opportunity to spread the benefits of Opera Mini to millions more consumers in our core markets. There are still massive numbers of people who have not moved to smartphones, but Opera Mini can provide them with an amazing browsing experience right now,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software.
