This is pretty intriguing.
Opera Watch has obtained some "exclusive" screenshots of some new features rumored to be in the upcoming
Opera 9. First is tab
: when you hover your mouse over a tab in Opera 9, a thumbnail image of the page on that tab is displayed
along with information like title and URL. It's a behavior similar to Tab Preview, a Firefox extension I mentioned
a few months back. Second
. Yes, widgets.
Unfortunately we have pretty much zero details except that the'll be "small programs that use Opera's rendering
engine," and the screenshot shows nothing but a "Show widgets" menu item. Opera Watch speculates that
widgets might be Opera's answer to Firefox's extensions, which Opera's CEO might have been hinting at in a Slashdot interview
