11.50.1018 Beta (May 31, 2011)
One thing Opera really should get a lot more credit for is its built in mail client.
it's actually one of the better IMAP clients out there.

That's a very old screenshot above.
Sure you can get a proxy going on linux. Even intercepting one with squid + iptables. If you have a couple years.
But WinGate is a lot more than just a proxy. There's a heap more it can do. I think the previous reviewer never can have looked at 7 at all.
The new policy system is simply awesome. Drag and drop your own decisions. I been waiting for something like this for years (literally - WG6 was 2004)... now I get total control over my policy, plus I see how people get through it (path highlighting) and can close it down. Can set different reject messages depending on what you reject on.
Dashboards are another amazing new feature. You can set up switches which control things in policy - like turn on and off auth or scanning or whatever with a click. Can set permissions on dashboard so I can let my manager see some things and click some buttons but not mess with my config. I haven't played with it heaps but it's pretty cool - even get glass effect on meters, and a dinky 14 segment emulated display.
The other cool thing is the timeline. It shows you a real time moving bar-graph of sites people are on (and for how long). You can scroll back in time to see who was on what site when and for how long (and how much data)... like real time report with history.
Still looking through a bunch but this is first impressions, which is that this is HOT!

There was a new version of WinGate too - version 7 but still only beta. Man... what can I say WOW! Nothing like any proxy I ever saw before... only been waiting 7 years since version 6 tho.. maybe even worth the wait!
