More Information

WEBLOC files are similar to .URL files created by other programs. They can be opened in Opera by dragging the file into an open browser window.

NOTE: WEBLOC files are not supported by the Windows version of Safari. When a WEBLOC file is copied to a Windows computer, it may show two files: [filename].webloc and [filename]._webloc. Both files can be opened in a text editor, which will reveal the URL contained in the file.
