I`m sure you are all aware by the fact that Opera`s latest Web browser, which is Opera 10, has added an essential feature on its software-named Opera Mail.  Well, it`s no surprise that Opera had to step up its game, because with such competition, there is no time for mistakes.

There is no doubt that with this two combined functions, Opera 10 will be a success. Opera Mail users don`t have to worry about missing their massages during an unexpected lost connection, because the software has a session restore option, which, in many cases is the hand of God.
