Opera 11.50 has now reached beta quality and is now ready for testing. We've put a lot of effort into this, and we're pushing towards the final release. As usual, check out the Desktop Team blog for some serious technical discussions and feedback. Anyway, here's what you can expect (major new features) in Opera 11.50:
Speed Dial extensions transform your Speed Dial from a picture into live action! What does that mean? Instead of a static link to a weather web site, a Speed Dial extension can display the forecast for your specific location. In fact, we built that extension.
Speed Dial extensions are easy to make. All you need is a little tiny bit of web development skills.
The last big new thing about Opera 11.50 beta is synchronization of passwords - made securely through Opera Link so you can log on to your password protected sites from anywhere. Opera Link also synchronizes bookmarks, your Speed Dial, custom search engine preferences, notes (yes, you can take notes in the Opera browser), typed browser history and more.
