Did you know that Opera has some of the most advanced tab features out there? From private tabs to tab stacking, tabs help you do more of what you want, the way you want to do it, on the web.
Sometimes we take for granted just how much you can do with tabs in Opera, which is why we were glad to see this super-helpful tutorial on tabs put together by the kind people at HowToGeek !
Learn how to pin your most-used sites such as Choose Opera, Opera Mail and Facebook. Then with the sessions management tool you can group the tabs that contain your work, school and personal stuff, and keep it separate from everything else. If you are one of those tab power users who love to keep hundreds of tabs open at a time, you probably already know how to use grouped tabs.
For the rest of us, there's always more to learn. From basic shortcuts like Shift+Ctrl+left-click to open a background tab (i.e., staying in the tab you're already in, while opening a new one at the end of the row) to using some of our most popular extensions to manage tabs on a computer,
you can get a lot more out of Opera when you know more about tabs.
Check out HowToGeek's guide and let us know about your favorite Opera tab features!

Earlier this week, Microsoft launched a new online email service to replace Hotmail, called Outlook.com.
Many of you reported that the new service did not work in Opera. We got in touch with Microsoft right away and started working on a solution to the problem.
We were able to include a fix for this problem in the 12.01 update. There may still be some issues with attachments for the time being, but we are working on getting that taken care of as soon as possible too.
If you're on a computer and haven't gotten the Opera 12.01 update yet, you can download it from our homepage. Also, you can check out our forums for information on any other specific issues you may have experienced.
Of course, you can also provide your comments here too. Are you using Outlook.com? What are your thoughts or impressions?

In this week's edition of our travel mystery tour, Ian Wright is in a city in Central Europe with a long and storied history.
This city is associated with a famous composer of classical music. Its grand architecture have also made it a perennial tourist attraction.
For Ian, however, it's the local cuisine that's the real highlight - especially when it comes to cabbage! Think you know where in the world this is? Then submit your answer here for your chance to win this week's prize!
Guess where Ian is!

Is this the style we should go for? Maybe not, but you tell us!
