Now you can bring photos from your Instagram account to straight to your Opera Speed Dial with the Speedie Gram extension for Opera from paddy2k.
You can choose from a stream of photos from accounts you follow, search for a hashtag, find photos from a specific location or just view Instagram's most popular photos.
We think this is a really cool extension by paddy2k, and we hope you will like it too!

These days, we're getting online from a wider variety of devices than ever before, from phones, computers and tablets, to hybrids like laplets, tabtops, and everything in between. But not all sites on the web are responsive, meaning they look and act the same on different devices.
That's why we wanted to single out some websites that do responsive web design (RWD) right - delivering a great experience regardless of whether you're using the big screen of a computing workstation or the small screen of your phone. (The following list is based on sites collected on Media Queries - head over there if you want to see even more great examples of RWD!)

Following our Opera Mini launch today, we also released a security and stability update for Opera Desktop.
Opera 12.11 should solve some crash issues as well as prevent two potential security issues. This update also includes a fix for some Google services that turned troublesome after SPDY was released from its cage.
This update is available through auto-update, but if you want it straight from our servers, download Opera 12.11 with security and stability updates!

With the latest Opera Desktop launch, we had the pleasure of introducing a new Facebook Speed Dial extension. What makes it good? It lets you easily know if there are any new likes, comments or messages in your Speed Dial.
Speed Dial for Facebook is a popular extension with more than 350,000 downloads. Perhaps this could be the most popular extension ever?
