Opera has just launched Opera Desktop 9.63 Chinese build (disclosure: I work for Opera). True to Opera desktop’s tradition, the China version is also named after a bird:IBIS. IBIS can be downloaded from Opera download (6.7mb)

With the launch of IBIS, Opera has moved from translation to localization. Once you launch the browser, you will spot a brand new look and feel. There is a bright red browser skin. Upon firing up a new tab, you will see that the Speed Dial (a feature that provides site preview) has a hovering effect with precustomized sites.

This version has better tab management more suited for the Chinese users. Double-clicking a tab will close it and dragging a link to open the tab will open it in the background rather than the foreground.
