Web of Trust (WOT) brings Web trust, safety, and privacy ratings to Opera

Web of Trust has been a trusted browser privacy and security add-on for Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer for quite a while. Now, Opera users can take advantage of WOT trust ratings as well! Just head over to the Opera Extensions gallery and install Web of Trust, and you'll have access to the same drop-down ratings panel we've shown you before for other browsers (we suspect it was probably...

Opera 11 downloaded 6.7 million times on day one -- thanks to the power of bacon

While Opera 11's warm reception had a lot to do with a greatly improved browser and a very loyal fan base, the boys in Oslo had one clever trick up their sleeve which they saved for launch day. And with nearly 7 million downloads in 24 hours, you've got to hand it to Opera: they know how to tempt a geek. How'd they do it? By dangling delicious bacon in front of Reddit users. You've got to...

Opera 11 final brings add-on support, tab stacks, and big-time performance gains

Less than two days ago, the first Opera 11 release candidate appeared. After a frenzy of developer activity to patch any remaining bugs -- and two more RC builds in the next 20 hours -- Opera has released version 11. Perhaps the single biggest addition to Opera 11 is extension support. With Download Squad favorites like LastPass now starting to appear, and with the process to port extensions...

Opera 11 RC 2 now available for download

Opera's developers have been pushing hard to finalize version 11 of the do-it-all browser. After just releasing the first Opera 11 RC only yesterday, they've already shoved the build aside to make way for RC2. While you won't find any new functionality in the RC, the RC builds are more stable and usable than previous snapshot releases. Extension support has been improved as well, and there are...

LastPass extension now available for Opera 11

LastPass has been providing secure, accessible-anywhere storage for your endless collection of Web logins for quite some time. The LastPass bookmarklet works in any modern browser, but it's not quite as functional as the add-ons for Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Now, users of Opera 11 can enjoy the full LastPass experience, too! Head on over to the Opera extensions site and install LastPass...

Opera 11 beta brings "tab stacking," on-demand plug-ins, more

So far with the Opera 11 snapshots, the focus has been on speed, extension support, and some pretty major UI work on the email client. There's been plenty of additional activity behind the scenes, however, and with the arrival of the Opera 11 beta today you can now play with one more feature: tab stacking. What is it? It's a way to keep your browser tabs organized, and it's going to be very...

10+ handy Opera 11 extensions

Opera 11 has finally joined the likes of Firefox, Chrome, and Safari in offering easy extensibility via extensions. While the list of available Opera extensions is comparatively short at the moment, there are already more than 100 to choose from -- and several that are quite handy. You'll need Opera 11 installed to use these, of course. Grab a current snapshot build, as a number of...

New Opera 11 snapshot brings lighter installer, extension polish

Over at the Opera Desktop Team blog, they've announced the release of a new alpha snapshot of Opera 11. The new build features numerous bugfixes and includes the basic plumbing for auto-updating of extensions and Unite applications. There's also a slimmer Windows installer -- weighing in at just under 7 megabytes (compared to 23MB for Chrome or 18MB for IE9), the Opera 11 install completed...

Opera 11 adds portable install option

Opera 11 already looks like it's going to be a solid browser once complete, with support for extensions, and even faster JavaScript and rendering engines. Over at TechieBuzz, they spotted one more feature addition: the option to install Opera 11 to an external device. During the install, just click the options button instead of accept and install. You'll be taken to the screen above, where you...

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...
