Opera 11.10 includes improved power saving features

Just recently, the Opera 11.10 release candidate was made available for download. It brought a handful of important feature additions -- like HTML5 File API support and IMAP enhancements -- and loads of bugfixes. Nestled in amongst the other details in the Opera team's announcement is one more interesting tidbit: Opera 11.10 offers improved battery optimizations. The timing here is certainly...

Opera 11.10 gets HTML5 File API support, IMAP improvements

The crew in Oslo keeps plugging away at Opera 11.10, and the latest snapshot build includes a number of improvements to Opera's built-in email client -- as well as HTML5-related additions. On the IMAP front, Opera now supports special folders like sent items, spam, and trash. It also better handles duplicate items in Gmail -- such as those which appear in all mail and under your custom label...

BitDefender Traffic Light protects your Web browser from malware and phishing

We've seen several browser toolbar security tools before here at Download Squad. Nearly every big-name antivirus company offers one nowadays, but BitDefender Traffic Light has one key advantage: it's available on all five major browsers! Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari. It's also not nearly as in-your-face as some browser malware defense tools. Traffic Light disp...

Yesterday we let you know that the Opera 11.10 beta would be available for download today -- and here it is. As we've shown you before, the betacuda Barracuda beta includes a much-improved Speed Dial page.

Opera 11.10 beta ships tomorrow

Opera has been busily churning out snapshot builds of version 11.10 of its Web browser. Tomorrow, we'll see the first Opera 11.10 beta download, according to a post over on the Opera Desktop Blog. So far, the Opera 11.10 builds have been focused on refining one of Opera's trademark features, its Speed Dial page. Infinite scroll has been added, thumbnail titles can be customized, and the numb...

The best social networking add-ons for all your browsers

If you're a social networking butterfly, or if you have the malevolent aspirations of one day becoming a 'social media expert,' you almost certainly spend a vast amount of time surfing the Web. You probably use a modern browser like Firefox or Chrome, and you almost certainly have a ton of tabs open at the same time. It can be hard work, keeping track of multiple websites. Hitting F5 is a pa...

Opera Mobile Store, powered by Appia, goes live for Mobile and Mini

It's not the first browser to get its own app store, but the Opera Mobile Store is... well, another app store. The Store has just launched and is powered by Appia, which offers a white-label app store system for carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, as well as some top-tier handset manufacturers. The Store will appear on Opera Mobile and Opera Mini Speed Dial pages and give users ac...

WebGL 1.0 spec finalized, everyone but Microsoft supports it

The Khronos Group has finally put its stamp on the WebGL 1.0 spec, and that's good news for those of you running Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari, and any other up-to-date WebKit browsers. If you're an Internet Explorer user, however, you're still not invited to the party. Microsoft, with IE9 only being available for Windows Vista and 7, is perfectly content with IE9's DirectX-based hardware a...

Opera 11.10 adds more Speed Dial tweaks, Presto refinements

Opera 11.10 Barracuda recently started baring its teeth, so to speak, revealing some subtle but welcome changes to the browser's trademark Speed Dial page. In its latest snapshot, further enhancements have been added. You can now customize titles for your Speed Dial entries, and the page itself is zoomable -- making it easier to cram large numbers of pages onto a single screen for scroll...

Opera is the first non-Safari browser and BitTorrent client in the Mac App Store

Opera made waves when it successfully launched its Opera Mini browser for the iPhone. Now company has made its way into Apple's Mac App Store, which makes Opera 11.01 the first Web browser in the Mac App Store that isn't built around Safari's Webkit core. Its description in the store is fairly tame, trumpeting Opera's speed and security along with gesture support and its trademark speed dial...

Opera enables hardware acceleration, matches IE9, beats Firefox and Chrome (video)

After the most pregnant of pauses -- like hot and lazy Spain, things moves slowly in the oil-rich barrens of Norway -- Opera has finally released a build of its 11.50 browser with hardware acceleration and WebGL support. Like Chrome, Opera has opted to use OpenGL for hardware acceleration -- at least for now: DirectX, and presumably Direct2D, support is coming at a later date. The OpenGL bac...

Opera 11.10 Barracuda adds infinite Speed Dial

If you guessed the unnamed-but-very-popular feature Opera was planning to overhaul in Opera 11.10 was the Speed Dial, buy yourself a beer! The browser's trademark new tab page has indeed been retooled. In the latest Opera 11.10 snapshot build, there's no limit to the number of Speed Dial entires you can add. Gone are the blank placeholder boxes from previous Opera versions, replaced with only a...

Swarthy surfers, you can now take Barracuda for a test swim! The first snapshot build of Opera 11.10 is ready to download, bringing with it a handful of network interoperability tweaks and Web Open Font Format support.

Ask DLS: What's your primary Web browser?

Competition is a good thing, and the browser arena has been a fierce arena for years now. There are at least four "major" browsers each vying for your attention, along with lots of smaller spin-offs (SRWare Iron or Flock, anyone?). While the browser usage charts we share from time to time show overall browser usage amongst the Web at large, Download Squad readers are not exactly the average bu...
