Opera 11.01 Features Information

I tried out the new Opera 11.01 Browser Today. I never have been much of an Opera User, my favorite Web Browser has been Firefox for the last 6 or so years... But, I do like the new features in Opera. Here's a few or them. You might want to try it out for your self...


Popular features

  • Opera Menu

    Access browser features and settings from the Opera Menu that has been designed to give you more space for browsing webpages. The traditional menu bar can be toggled on by selecting "Show Menu Bar" in the Opera Menu.

  • Visual tabs

    Drag the handle underneath the tabs to reveal thumbnails of your open webpages.

  • Closed Tabs

    When a webpage is closed, it appears here in a list of recently closed tabs, so you can easily return to where you left off.

  • Speed Dial

    Get easy access to your favorite sites every time you open a new tab. Choose the layout and the background you prefer.

  • Password Manager

    Opera can log in to websites automatically. The first time you log in, you can have Password Manager save the password. Next time, just click the key or press Ctrl+Enter and you'll be logged in.

  • Opera Unite

    This is a technology platform allowing you to share content directly with friends, without having to upload anything to a website. With Opera Unite applications, you can stream music, share photo galleries, files and folders, or even host your own webpages directly from your browser.

  • Visual mouse gestures

    Perform many common browser actions with a quick flick of your mouse. Holding down the right mouse button on a webpage now shows a visual guide that indicates how to perform the available gestures. See video.

  • Opera Turbo

    Boost your browsing speed on crowded Wi-Fi hotspots, tethered mobile phones or slow dial-up connections.

  • Zoom

    Magnify content to read websites with small text easily or zoom out to see the whole webpage. Opera's zoom resizes all elements of the page, not just text. You can also toggle images off from here to improve readability and speed up page loads.

  • Mail panel

    When using Opera's built-in mail client, you now can now drag accounts and mail items where you want them. The mail panel can also hide when you are not viewing a mail tab.

  • Safer address field

    The address field has been improved and now hides the complexity of long web addresses. It also provides more security information to help you stay safe when browsing; just click the badge for the website to see security information about the site you are visiting. See video.

  • Search suggestions

    Search suggestions predict queries as you type, making searching quicker and easier. Google search predictions are now built into Opera. When using the search field or searching from the address field with the 'g' search keyword, Google search predictions will appear.

  • Tab stacking

    Dragging one tab over another allows you to create groups of tabs. Now you can keep dozens of webpages open, organized and under control.

  • Extensions

    It is simple to extend Opera's functionality by visiting our extensions catalog. Some extensions create a button you can click or have menus, while others just work in the background. See video.

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.


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.
