What a chance
What a chance. I have downloaded Opera 11 and I will return soon with something stupid.
Most excellent it is too.
Opera 11 is easilly the best browser in the market, why? Because it's got the best performance, it's got the best features, it's got the best track record on security, it's got the best looks.
Sure it's got a small marketshare, but then it's not backed by Microsoft/Google/Apple/Mozilla, the first 2 of them having bottomless reserves of cash and media influence to push their products, and in the case of Microsoft/Apple bundle/force their products on users.
Anyone that calls themselves web savvy will be using Opera. End of....
Really need this plugin to be made for opera - makes browsing on a netbook *so* much easier.
jolly good show
I got the update of this yesterday, no one can sneak out a browser update like Opera!
Fantastic additions - Tab Stacking beats Firefox's Tab Candy hands down as a tab organisation tool, the new gesture indicator is useful (I'd forgotten about the gesture for opening a background tab) and the extensions have already given me several less reasons to use Firefox.
Fingers crossed, Opera seems to be getting along with my company's proxy authentication now too.
Truly a fab feature. I love this. Been using Opera 11 on both Linux and OS X and its just the best browsing experience I've had in a loooong time.
I kinda like the email client, too.
Its also undoubtedly the best browser for netbooks, too, in my opinion.
Now all they have to do is port the widget engine to their Mini platform and enable millions of feature phones to run widget apps too.
