Opera 11.51 Update Released

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

I’m glad that I’m not trying to keep my PC current with all of these updates …

Opera Software has just released the final version of Opera 11.51 after two release candidates that have been released in the past week. The new version of the web browser fixes several stability issues which makes it more of a maintenance release than a release that comes along with new major features.


Opera 11.11 Final

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

You know, this is kind of unusual, but it’s been a few days since I’ve seen an article about a browser update … no wait, here’s one …

Opera Software has officially released Opera 11.11 Final a few seconds ago. The version has been available on Opera’s ftp server since yesterday, and many software download portals like Softpedia or Betanews have offered the new version since then. While it may be tempting to download a new browser version a day early, it is somewhat risky considering that last minute changes or bugs might force Opera to update the version before release.


Opera 11.10 Download Available – Grab Your Copy Now

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

If you had all four popular web browsers, and updated each browser every time that an update was available … it would almost be a full-time job just keeping up with the updates.

Opera Software is usually pretty quick in releasing the final version of the Opera web browser once they have reached the release candidate stage. This time it took four release candidates before they shipped Opera 11.10 final. Downloads are already available on the main Opera homepage, and Opera 11 stable users should see update notifications soon. A check with the beta version of Opera 11.10 did not find the update yet, and it is not clear if beta users will see update notifications or if they need to install the Internet browser manually.


Opera Speed Dial Improvements

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Here’s an interesting update for the Opera browser …

The latest Opera 11.10 alpha snapshot which got released yesterday contains changes to Opera’s speed dial feature, among other improvements. Speed Dial was first introduced in 2007 by Opera and has since found its way into other web browsers either as a built-in feature or extensions as well.


First Opera 11.10 Barracuda Snapshot Released

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Here’s an advanced sneak peak at the next Opera release …

I’m usually not reporting on snapshot and non-public builds anymore as it would fill the blog with reviews about new web browser releases. This time however I’m making an exception. Opera Software has just released the first snapshot of Opera 11.10, codenamed Barracuda. That in itself is not that spectacular; This changes however if you look at the fixes and changes made in the snapshot build.


Opera LinksRedirector Extension – Redirect Links Automatically

Friday, January 28th, 2011

This one sounds kind of cool; particularly the part that lets you skip intro pages and go directly to a main page …

Some websites and services display interstitial pages which some users may not want to see. Google Images is an example for that. A click on an image search result does not load the image directly in full size, but an interstitial page. Users who only want to see the image in full size need to click again on that page before they can see it.


Opera 11.01 Final Lands

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

I think we’re averaging about two browser updates per week these days …

Opera Software has just released Opera 11.01, an update to Opera 11 which adds security fixes and stability improvements to the popular web browser. The final version has been released after numerous snapshots and two release candidates.


Opera Snap Links – Another Useful Extension Ported

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Here’s an interesting add-on for Opera 11 …

The introduction of extensions in Opera 11 and the release of Opera 11 final has seen an increase in third party development for the web browser. Popular browser extensions, like the Last Pass password manager, have already found their way to the Opera browser. The latest port of a useful add-on is called Snap Links which adds options to open multiple links at once in Opera.


Opera 11 Final Out, Download Now

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Yesterday we had an article about the availability of an Opera 11 release candidate … now today, here’s the real deal.

Only days after releasing three release candidates of Opera 11, Opera Software released the final version of Opera 11 making it the new flagship desktop browser of the Norwegian company. Users who want to skip straight to the download can download the Internet browser directly from the company’s website for all supported operating systems.


Opera 11 Release Candidate Out

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

… And here’s the daily browser up date …

Google does not seem to be the only company that has accelerated the pace of browser development in the last year. Opera Software yesterday released the first Opera 11 release candidate, a big milestone in the development of the new Opera browser.
