The first beta version of the Otter browser (Otter 0.9.01) has been released for both Linux and Windows. Among others, it got a new icon, support for Ubuntu’s Qt stack (so it can be compiled on Ubuntu), a new error console, support for additional atributes for bookmarks and bookmark keyword, translations in 18 languages and a bunch of fixes and improvements. For more information, see the changelog.

    It’s great ! 🙂 Apparently a version of Opera 23 will be available for Linux. At least, that results from the development version. http://gallery.dpcdn.pl/imgc/News/54435/g_-_-x-_-_-_54435x20140516121607_0.png
