Those tired of testing out weeklies can rejoice as the Opera Software Desktop Team has delivered the second beta version of the still and seemingly forever upcoming Opera 9.5. The new version of the desktop browser features changes to the keyboard shortcuts plus:

User Interface

- Full text history search is now part of the address field, with better results and better performance.
- Introduced a new security notification scheme in the address field; see Security.
- Added alternative tab-closing behaviors. The preferences now include the following options when closing a tab:
Activate the last active tab (default)
Activate the next tab
Activate first tab opened from current tab
- New spatial navigation highlighting, similar to the one used in Opera Mini 4 and the Wii browser.

Mail, Chat, and Feeds

- Improved IMAP performance and reliability.
- Faster startup times on systems with NTFS and ReiserFS file systems.
- Improved search results in Opera Mail when using Quick Find.
- Opera can now be set as the default mail application from the control panel.
- Improved feed download speed when there are many existing feed messages.
- Reduced CPU usage when downloading torrents.
- Numerous bug fixes and optimizations.

Display and Scripting

- Added MathML support.
- Opera now cloaks document.all.
- Improved performance of Web pages with XMLHttpRequest (AJAX).
- Added support for getClientRects and getBoundingClientRect.
- Added support for the CSS color and background-color properties for the ::selection pseudo-element.

Miscellaneous

- All mail and history searching now occurs in a separate processor thread.
- Opera Link now synchronizes notes, in addition to bookmarks and Speed Dial entries.
- New search.ini includes Google Images and Wikipedia.
- Improved compatibility with Gmail 2.

Security

- Improved back-end for Fraud Protection, now enabled by default.
- Added support for Extended Validation (EV) certificates.
- Added automatic updates of root certificates.
- Introduced a new security notification scheme in the address field:
gold lock on green field for secure sites with Extended Validation
silver lock on yellow field for regular secure sites
question mark on gray field for HTTPS sites with problems
no notification for normal sites
fraud warning on red field for blacklisted sites
- Opera now distinguishes between local servers on localhost, intranet servers, and remote servers on the Internet. Local servers can use remote resources, but not vice versa.

Windows-specific changes

- Improved performance of painting on Web pages demanding graphics-intensive operations.
- Windowless mode for Silverlight 1.1 now works.
