- Safe and secure: Reduce your exposure to threats. Your safety is ensured by industry leading security, Fraud andMalware Protection and a clear display of your security level.
- Smart features: Use great features that make browsing faster and easier. Opera has more features built in than other browsers. You can also add even more with extensions.
- Lightning fast: Make your web browsing faster. Loading pages and running web applications is really snappy. You can even speed up browsing on slow connections, with Opera Turbo.
Instead of handy thumbnails and links to your top sites, you can embed your Speed Dial with extensions that keep you updated—instantly—on what is happening around the Web. Take weather updates, for example. Why click through to a website when you can get the current conditions live at a glance? Or, why not be the first to know the hot news of the day just by opening a new tab? Speed Dial extensions are a smarter way of getting to the content you want and need.
"We're excited about the work that has gone into Opera 11.50," said Jan Standal, VP of Desktop Products, Opera Software. "Before we challenge Lady Gaga though, we've got to surpass the Tom Selleck moustache fan page on Facebook and the number of forum posts Opera fan Tamil has written. We think Speed Dial extensions are amazing enough to do the trick, but we didn't stop there."
Here are all the other things that have been added to make Opera 11.50 worthy of being your next default browser:
- Password synchronization: Now, Opera Link supports passwords, so you can synchronize your website passwords—securely—with other Opera browsers. It's perfect for checking Facebook quickly when you're supposed to be working.
- Sleek, now sleeker: Opera 11.50 sports a new design that's even more streamlined and lightweight than our previous look.
- Under the hood: Opera fixed thousands of bugs and upgraded to our newest core rendering engine. Along the way, Opera also tweaked software graphics engine with faster CSS and SVG rendering. What does that mean to you? Opera 11.50 is the fastest and most stable Opera browser ever.
- Goodies for developers: Eager to get your hands dirty with all of the new stuff in HTML5? We've got you covered. Opera 11.50 adds Session History and Navigation, the W3C File API, classlist and the element to our already advanced HTML5 support.
