Opera 11 debuts: screenshots and direct download links inside!

The wraps have been officially pulled off of Opera 11, and as you might have guessed, the recently-announced extensions support is taking center stage. Opera's Thomas Ford was kind enough to send over a handful of images in advance of the release, and you can clearly see three active in the Opera toolbar: Reddited, Opera2Phone, and Yr.No Forecast.

As with other browsers, Opera will offer a curated repository from which you can download extensions. Currently, it's located at http://addons.labs.opera.com/. Developer documentation has also been posted, and it's all about Web standards (HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, etc.). Opera also claims that it should only involve a few simple tweaks to port existing extensions from browsers like Chrome, Safari, and Firefox. You can check out some additional screenshots of Opera 11 browsing and installing extensions after the jump.

We'll be taking a look at some of the other new features in Opera 11 throughout the day. Now without further ado, here are the Opera 11 alpha download links:
Remember, folks: this is an alpha release. It could crash, cause freezing, or mutilate your bookmarks. But hey, it's all part of the thrill of testing bleeding-edge software, am I right?
