Opera Software is planning to release a second preview version of Opera 9, which contains support for widgets.

Widgets are essentially small browser windows that display information taken from the Internet on a user's desktop. The notion is similar in concept to the widget idea that Apple Computer uses in the Dashboard feature of Mac OS X.
Not only that, Opera's new browser will also support BitTorrent downloads, and will include the official BitTorrent.com search engine in its browser.
