We've been pixel crunching up until the last minute for Opera 11.50.
The team has designed a brighter, lighter UI to complement Opera's fast rendering engine. This is one of several phases of project Featherweight.
A big thank you for those awesome pixels and late hours to:
Jan Henrik Helmers
The highlights of Featherweight in this release include:
- Brighter overall color schemes, softer gradients
- New toolbar button styles without borders
- New icon styles for use directly on the Aero glass effect
- Always-present zoom slider on the status bar
- Extra Polish for Speed Dials
- Updated window gradients to better fit in with Lion for OS X

It’s that time of year again, and in the spirit of the holiday season, the Opera design team created some happy holiday cards to give different Opera departments their own unique ways to wish their customers and partners a merry holiday season. Matt Cox
created a few different illustrations and designs for different departments and regional offices.
The gingerbread man card was created for the PR department. This was a perfect complement to their PR gifts -- homemade gingerbread cookies, which they sent to partners around the world.
The mitten card was created to be a more general Opera holiday card for our regional offices and other Opera departments. The glove in the lower left corner sports a traditional Norwegian pattern, or parts of it, from the famous Norwegian Selbuvotter
We wish you all happy holidays and a prosperous new year! :-)Wallpaper Gingerbread man with white frame

Opera 10.60 was launched earlier today. The news is Geolocation, improved support for advanced Web standards such as HTML5 and WebM video, search suggestions and it's of course faster than ever!
The dark speed dial boxes has been replaced with white clean boxes in wide screen format and a default background image has been added. Some nice transitions has been added to switching / dragging tabs, tabs preview, and visual tabs.
On the website, we've updated the campaign graphic but continue with the "small, fast and beautiful" hummingbird theme. We've also made an update to our download button. We decided to go in the direction of a darker and more Opera branded download button, in line with the design of the opera.com top navigation. This way we'll more clearly state that you're about to download an Opera product, than with the previous version.
Regarding the button, is this the way to go? Should download buttons use green or blue color by default, or should it reflect the brand? Download Opera 10.60
, or read more about it here

and check out if anyone else is using Opera 10.60 in your area : )
