    I was about to say that it doesn't really need them, but I suppose they would be pretty handy for things like ChrometoPhone, or Android2Cloud.

    Hopefully they'll be cross compatible with another browser's existing library. Namely Chrome's as FF's is a clusterfuck of plop. Not that they can because of the different architecture, but one can dream.

    Just switched from Firefox. Loving it - fast, intuitive, efficient. Love the speed dial.

    Yes and no, chrome and the other webkit browsers seem just fine. So far.

    Thought you guys might be interested to know that a load of Opera employees are doing an IAmA* over at reddit - link.


    Among other things, this amused me: most expensive javascript ever.

    Opera 11 Beta RC1 now with tab stacks.

    Drag a tab onto another tab and it creates a collapsible stack. Very nice little tweak.

    Opera are brilliant at social media advertising:

    On reddit somebody starts a thread entitled IAmA person with zero creative talent, I'll draw any thing you ask in MSPaint.

    Somebody asks him "Can you draw our CEO riding a narwhal over a double rainbow? If you can I'll upload your image to the home page of our companies website for a day."

    The hilariously crappy MS Paint drawing gets uploaded to the opera.com homepage!

    Opera homepage link and screencap for when it has gone (for it'll only be there today).


    :D

    Right, Opera has signed me out of all my sites, and now it won't let me back in, it just acts like I've not typed in the correct password.

    I'm using IE to get to the forums. HAYLP!

    Did you turn off cookies or something?

    Press F12 and make sure it's all ticked apart from proxie servers and turbo.

    Were you using the accelerator function? If so it is likely to be that which is causing problems.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I had used the accelerator, and yep, my cookies were off for some reason, how odd!

    Cheers DB :D

    I used to get a black screen on streetview, but these days no problem.

    Try the most recent release candidate http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/2010/12/15/opera-11-00-release-candidate-3

    You could have just read a few posts up, but you're welcome.

    It's got extensions and tab stacking as well if you like that sort of thing.

    Already finding the tab stacking very useful - I'm one of those who tend to leave loads of tabs open to remind me to look at a site another time, and stacking them helps tidy the clutter massively.

    For a browser that's still in it's beta cycle, it's doing pretty well for extensions. It's already got nearly 10 times as many as Safari and it's closing on Chrome.

    Opera 11 is great, and I haven't even started fiddling with extensions yet!

    My only complaint so far is that the mouse gestures* seem to require more travel to trigger. They used to work with when you moved the mouse only a few pixels, but it seems to want approaching 50 pixels worth of movement before it does anything now. I'm sure I'll get used to it in time, but I did like how utterly effortless they were before.

    *the new visual guide is a pretty neat way to get people started on them


    edit: actually, the mouse gesture thing is starting to annoy me, as I keep having to redo gestures slightly bigger than I used to do them. Grrrrr.

    Uncheck opera:config#UserPrefs|ShowGestureUI and lower opera:config#UserPrefs|GestureThreshold

    Or ask on reddit. Whatevs.
