Oslo, Norway – Sept. 3, 2001 – Opera Software today released Opera 5 for
Mac OS X Carbon Beta 1. The Opera 5.0 for Mac, which has received
international recognition for its speed, small size and
standards-compliance, now offers Mac users the same stability whether they
use systems 7.5.3 to 9.x or Mac OS X Carbon.

Mac OS X Carbon users can now enjoy keychain support and auto-completion of
URLs like their fellow Mac users were offered through the release of Opera
for Mac Beta 2 at Macworld in New York, July 18. Furthermore, users are
offered an extra button set originally designed for MacWorld which blends
well into the design of Mac OS X, in addition to the default Opera button

“The development toward a final version for all systems for Mac users is
important to us,” says Hakon W. Lie, Chief Technology Officer of Opera
Software, “and we are very happy to announce that we now can offer the same
stability to all our Mac users.”

Opera 5 for Mac OS X Carbon Beta 1 will work with Mac OS X Carbon in the
native mode. Opera 5 for Mac OS X Carbon Technology Preview supports the
following World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards: 128-bit encryption,
TLS 1.0, SSL 2 and 3, CSS1 and CSS2, XML, HTML 4.01, HTTP 1.1, ECMAScript,
DOM and WAP/WML. Opera 5 for Mac OS X Carbon Beta 1 has powerful search
features where users can easily move between the most popular search
