Wow! I like 5.0 but 6 just displayed raw html source ..?..?..? Maybe I should compile it instead of using the RPM.
...and what's with this annoying disclaimer that pops up every time I start it.. telling me not to distribute this "Technology Preview" and yet they are offering it for free download -huh?

Yeah the disclaimer is very annoying and completely pointless! I usually leave opera running as long as I am logged in so I only see it once in a while that I need to log out (once a week maybe).
It looks good, all the mouse gestures are at least enabled, but I still can't see any greek pages. but you can block popups or have them open in the background without resizing your main window. The new button scheme is a bit XP-ish but doesn't look bad. I'm quite happy with opera but I still use mozilla/galeon for some pages.

Okay, I see, you have to remove your old .opera folder in order not to get the raw html code.... very nice! Using it now....

Excellent Seems faster, but locks up more. Crashed once last night, but otherwise seems rock solid. Quick preferences and mouse gestures rock
I didnt have to delete my .opera dir, but i did have to remove 5.05 (the .opera dir stayed), not just install over the previous version it as i have before.
