"Opera Software hasn't yet put the finishing touches on its forthcoming Mac and Linux browser releases. But the software maker plans to announce Thursday that it will make free versions of Opera 5.0 for both of these operating systems available later this year."

"Oslo, Norway-based Opera makes what the company claims is "the fastest browser on earth." It markets its compact, fast-loading browser as an alternative to the big two: Microsoft's Internet Explorer and America Online/Netscape Communications' Navigator."

"Opera is designed to run on a variety of operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Macintosh, Be OS and the Epoc wireless system. The non-Java-enabled version of Opera 5.0 for Windows is 2MB in size; the Java-enabled version is 9.5MB."
