Opera 11 launched




Personalize

Customize your browser

You can add, remove or reposition buttons and toolbars or change the entire layout of the browser. It is easy to do… or undo.

Access bookmarks instantly

The convenient bookmarks bar keeps commonly visited sites and bookmark folders in front of you at all times, allowing instant access. You can enable this toolbar by selecting Opera menu -> Toolbars -> Bookmarks Bar.

Choose your look and layout

Opera's vibrant user community has created many beautiful skins and setups for you to try, so you can have a customized look for your browser.

Create your own shortcuts

Opera offers many ways to perform browser actions, and you can also customize your own keyboard shortcuts, mouse gestures and more


Tabs

Look inside tabs

When you hover the mouse pointer over a tab, a preview shows you the content of that page. When you stack tabs, hovering over a stack also shows a preview of the tabs within, and you may select the tab you want to use.

Re-open tabs you closed

With Closed Tabs, you can open tabs that you accidentally closed or website pop-ups that Opera blocked.

Protect a tab from closing

By right-clicking a tab, you can pin it to prevent it from being closed by accident. Pinned tabs take up minimal space and are automatically moved to the left of other tabs to make them easy to find.

Get a better view of tabs

Visual tabs show a small thumbnail for each website, in addition to the page title and icon. You can drag the tab bar to the desired height to adjust the thumbnail size accordingly.

Save sets of tabs

You can save your open tabs as a "session" and load it later on to open these same pages. You can have multiple sessions and load each one based on what you are doing at a certain time.


Productivity

Stay in control of downloads

Download files more quickly. As soon as you click a file to save it, Opera starts downloading it, so there is no wasted time. Pause and resume downloads with the push of a button, and choose multiple files to download simultaneously.

Follow your favorite feeds

Subscribing to newsfeeds with Opera Mail is simple. Just click the RSS link in the address field, click "Subscribe", and the feed will display under "Newsfeeds" at the bottom of your Mail panel. Now, you can get your RSS feeds right in the browser without using a separate program.

Keep your spelling in check

The spell checker in Opera shows a red line under misspelled words anywhere you can enter text on a webpage. Corrections can be chosen by right-clicking the misspelled word.

Eliminate distractions

You can block images, pop-ups and plug-ins that you do not want to see. Right-click a page, choose "Block Content" and click annoying elements to disable them selectively. In Opera, smart pop-up blocking is turned on by default.

Manage bookmarks efficiently

Give your bookmarks easy-to-remember names or group them into folders to help manage your bookmarks as your collection grows.

Load plug-ins only when needed

You can choose to have plug-ins such as Flash and Silverlight load content only when clicked. This is helpful to speed up browsing on computers that have difficulty handling lots of plug-in content.

Use convenient widget apps

Many Opera Widgets are available to provide handy functions such as showing the weather, quickly looking up information or providing entertainment and games. Opera Widgets now run directly on the desktop, so they keep running even if you close your browser.

Download using BitTorrent

Support for BitTorrent is built in to Opera so you can download torrents without the need for a separate application. You can even monitor the progress of large torrent downloads with Opera's downloads panel.

Search

Search from the address field

Save time by typing your search query directly into the address field. You can also customize this feature by choosing the search engine you prefer.

Get suggestions as you search

Search suggestions predict queries as you type, making searching quicker and easier. Google search predictions are now built into Opera, along with Wikipedia, Bing and Yandex suggestions. These are displayed when using the search field or when using search keywords in the address field. For example, to see Google's search predictions, type "g search words" in the address field.

Use any search engine instantly

It is easy to use your favorite search engine whenever you want—from the search field, the address field or even the context menu. You can also add any search engine. Simply right-click in the search field of a search engine’s website and select "Create Search".

Find what you need in webpages

"Find in page" is brilliant in Opera. All matching results are highlighted, so they are clearly visible. You can fine-tune your search to match all the text, just the whole word or only the links or the page. This feature can be accessed from keyboard shortcuts such as [.] (period) for text and [,] (comma) for links.

Get back to visited pages easily

By typing in the address field, you can search through items in your history and bookmarks. Results will show that match actual page content, making it easy to find pages that you have visited. Deleting pages from your history can also be done directly from this history list.
