Just for the information for all Opera users. Today, Opera 7.10 beta was released. After a little testing, I must say that visually, it's a great improvement over 7.03.

For me, one major feature and one major fix:

* The new feature is that you can highlight any text and copy it into your "Notes" (something like "Bookmarks". This takes care of the many text files with various notes that have been flooding My Documents folder.

* This is the first 7.x versions that copies text formating properly. Until now, even such basic formating features, like paragraphs, were ignored. Sometimes when I copied a whole article, even break lines were ignored, giving me a big block of text. For this reason alone, I stuck to opera 6.05...

That sounds nice, but also makes you more dependent on this one program...

Personally, I keep a single text file named "notes" and paste any such notes there.

I do the same, in a program called "Treepad", which allows me to keep all notes organized. However, at over 20MB, the file is a little cumbersome to handle...

And as for dependence on one program, I agree with that. However, considering that Opera is also a mail client, it has been very dependable even before.
