Opera 11


Opera features:

Personalize

Customize your browser

You can add, remove or reposition buttons and toolbars or change the entire layout of the browser. It is easy to do… or undo.

Access bookmarks instantly

The convenient bookmarks bar keeps commonly visited sites and bookmark folders in front of you at all times, allowing instant access. You can enable this toolbar by selecting Opera menu -> Toolbars -> Bookmarks Bar.

Choose your look and layout

Opera’s vibrant user community has created many beautiful skins and setups for you to try, so you can have a customized look for your browser.

Create your own shortcuts

Opera offers many ways to perform browser actions, and you can also customize your own keyboard shortcuts, mouse gestures and more.

Tabs

Look inside tabs

When you hover the mouse pointer over a tab, a preview shows you the content of that page. When you stack tabs, hovering over a stack also shows a preview of the tabs within, and you may select the tab you want to use.

Re-open tabs you closed

With Closed Tabs, you can open tabs that you accidentally closed or website pop-ups that Opera blocked.

 

Protect a tab from closing

By right-clicking a tab, you can pin it to prevent it from being closed by accident. Pinned tabs take up minimal space and are automatically moved to the left of other tabs to make them easy to find.

Get a better view of tabs

Visual tabs show a small thumbnail for each website, in addition to the page title and icon. You can drag the tab bar to the desired height to adjust the thumbnail size accordingly.

Save sets of tabs

You can save your open tabs as a “session” and load it later on to open these same pages. You can have multiple sessions and load each one based on what you are doing at a certain time.

Productivity

Stay in control of downloads

Download files more quickly. As soon as you click a file to save it, Opera starts downloading it, so there is no wasted time. Pause and resume downloads with the push of a button, and choose multiple files to download simultaneously.

Follow your favorite feeds

Subscribing to newsfeeds with Opera Mail is simple. Just click the RSS link in the address field, click “Subscribe”, and the feed will display under “Newsfeeds” at the bottom of your Mail panel. Now, you can get your RSS feeds right in the browser without using a separate program.

Keep your spelling in check

The spell checker in Opera shows a red line under misspelled words anywhere you can enter text on a webpage. Corrections can be chosen by right-clicking the misspelled word.

Eliminate distractions

You can block images, pop-ups and plug-ins that you do not want to see. Right-click a page, choose “Block Content” and click annoying elements to disable them selectively. In Opera, smart pop-up blocking is turned on by default.

Manage bookmarks efficiently

Give your bookmarks easy-to-remember names or group them into folders to help manage your bookmarks as your collection grows.

Load plug-ins only when needed

You can choose to have plug-ins such as Flash and Silverlight load content only when clicked. This is helpful to speed up browsing on computers that have difficulty handling lots of plug-in content.

Use convenient widget apps

Many Opera Widgets are available to provide handy functions such as showing the weather, quickly looking up information or providing entertainment and games. Opera Widgets now run directly on the desktop, so they keep running even if you close your browser.

Download using BitTorrent

Support for BitTorrent is built in to Opera so you can download torrents without the need for a separate application. You can even monitor the progress of large torrent downloads with Opera’s downloads panel.

Latest Technologies

The fastest JavaScript engine

The Carakan JavaScript engine has been further enhanced to run more quickly than ever! This makes Opera 11 the fastest browser on Earth in many performance tests. Even complex webpages load and run with lightning speed.

Support for the the latest HTML5

With our latest Opera Presto rendering engine and its improved support for HTML5 and CSS3, websites using the latest web standards are no problem for Opera. Opera 11 supports new technologies such as Web Sockets and server-sent events so sophisticated web apps and multiplayer games can be supported in Opera.

Smooth and fast graphics

Everything in Opera is drawn on your screen using Opera’s new high-performance Vega graphics library. This enables super fast and smooth graphics, in everything from tab switching to animation on webpages.

Support for Geolocation

You can now share your location with geolocation-supported websites such as Google Maps. Rest assured that your privacy is a top priority – you will always be prompted before sharing your location.

Security and Privacy

Be safe on the Web

Opera features up-to-the-minute information from leading security agencies on exploits, viruses and phishing scams. When you visit sites on the Web, Opera checks this data in real time and warns you when a site is identified as dangerous. In addition, Opera supports Extended Validation certificates (EV) to provide added assurance and trust for secure websites.

Keep your browsing private

Using a private tab or window ensures that evidence of your browsing history is removed as soon as the tab or window is closed. Now, it is safer to do your banking from a public computer or easier to plan that surprise vacation.

See your security on websites

An enhanced address field makes it easy to stay safe on the Web. The complexity of long addresses is hidden to make it clear which site you are visiting. A colored badge also indicates the quality of encryption that is used; clicking it gives you detailed information about the site.

Control website cookies

Opera allows you to choose which cookies you accept or reject. For example, you can allow for different set-ups for different servers.

Stay up to date

Opera 11 makes it easy to have the latest version of not just the browser, but any extensions and Opera Unite applications you are using. You can have completely automatic updates or to be notified when an update is ready for you install. As always with Opera, it is your choice.

Opera Press Releases

Newest Opera browser features tab stacking, extensions, visual mouse gestures

Oslo, Norway — December 16, 2010

Opera Software debuted the newest version of its award-winning browser today. Opera 11 combines elegant design, smart updates to some of our most popular features and new ways to customize Opera to your preferences. Download it today for Windows, Mac and Linux computers from http://www.opera.com/.

What’s new

Tab stacking

Tab stacking is a better way to organize your open tabs. Simply drag one tab on top of another to create a stack. Here is a short video to introduce tab stacking: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hqSGGk1YTI

Extensions

Extensions help you personalize your browser and enhance what Opera can do. More than two million extensions have already been downloaded from https://addons.opera.com/. Try the top five most-downloaded extensions for yourself:

  1. NoAds authored by Lex1. The top ad-blocking extension for Opera.
  2. LastPass authored by lastpass. LastPass is a free password manager and form filler.
  3. FastestTube – YouTube Video Downloader authored by fastesttube. Download any video from YouTube.
  4. Image preview authored by whochan. Displays a pop-up preview of an image.
  5. Translate authored by neilj. Automagically translates foreign-language webpages.

Visual mouse gestures

With the flick of your wrist, mouse gestures let you navigate back and forwards, open new pages, close tabs and so much more. In Opera 11, you now have a handy visual guide to the wonders of mouse gestures.

Safer address field

We changed the address bar, so you can make better sense of the security levels of the sites you visit. Opera 11 now displays a clear badge indicating the security level and allowing immediate, one-click access to security and trust information about the site.

What we say

“We have always worked hard to introduce new and bold ideas in web browsing,” said Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder, Opera. “But, sometimes we want to take an idea and improve upon it. Opera 11 adds a layer of polish to features people have known and loved for more than a decade, while introducing extensions. If you have never tried Opera before, Opera 11 will change everything you know about browsing.”

The rule of 30

  • Opera 11 is 30 percent smaller than Opera 10.60, so it downloads even faster
  • Plug-ins can be set to load on-demand. This can improve performance of the browser up to 30 percent.
