Until now, you had to visit mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2& ... to get the new version of Gmail in Opera, but this is no longer necessary (at least for Opera 9.5).

Fantastic. Not only does it work by default, but all the little things that didn't work (like spell check & rich text formatting) do work now.

So: gMail, Google Reader, Google Calendar (I think), work now. Google Notebook doesn't, does Google Docs work in Google yet?

I hope Google gets all the others working in Opera.

Only the word processor.

Thanks. I hope Google take Opera seriously, it's a shame quite a number of Google services aren't available to Opera users.

It's quite understandable why Opera support has taken a while. You work by pleasing the masses. IE and Firefox have a large market share. Opera doesn't. Why waste employee time (ie. money) and delay a product release for such a small percentage of users.

Just as a side note: One of the main reasons I don't use Opera is I use GDocs a lot (and also the lack of extension support).
