The first windows browser with built-in WAP-WML capability
Posted: 16-May-2000 [Source: Business Wire]

[The new beta release of the Opera Web browser features built-in support for WAP.]

Oslo, Norway -- "Opera Software is proud to announce Beta 4 of the Opera for Windows 4.0 browser. Beta 4 includes experimental support for WAP-WML.

"WAP stands for Wireless Application Protocol; it gives devices access to information written in the Wireless Mark-up Language (WML). Many WAP-WML sites are available on the Internet, but ordinary browsers cannot access them.

``Opera 4.0 gives Web users access to WAP services, opening up a whole new frontier for the entire WAP industry,'' says Hakon Wium Lie, CTO, Opera Software. ``Opera's formatting engine is very fast and flexible.''

"With the added support for WML, Opera Software re-affirms its position as a technological leader in the Internet browser market. The Opera browser combines Internet standards-compliance with fast and effective graphics and text layout, giving the Opera user a better Internet experience.

``Part of the Opera vision is to make the Internet open and accessible to all,'' says Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO Opera Software, ``The ability to surf WAP-WML sites is a natural part of this.''

"Opera for Windows 4.0 beta 4 includes the following features:

"E-mail, faster rendering speed, small size, low resource requirements, plug-in support, standards-compliance, 128-bit encryption, TLS, SSL 2 and 3, CSS1, CSS2, XML, HTML 4.0, HTTP 1.1, WML, ECMAScript and JavaScript 1.3.
