Opera 11 Goes Live

Norwegian-based Opera Software has released Opera 11 to the general public.

The updated web browser introduces a range of new features and security enhancements.

Opera has added a 'tab stacking' feature, allowing users to group several tabs together to remove clutter.

The web browser will also come with an Extensions feature, which will add browser plug-ins. The company said that more than two million extensions or add-ons have been added since Opera 11 Beta was launched.

Opera 11 additionally introduces swift mouse gestures to assist navigating back and forward between sites, closing tabs and opening new pages. The company has also improved the address bar, allowing users to check the security levels of each site they visit.

Jon von Tetzchner, Co-founder of Opera, said in a press release that “Opera 11 adds a layer of polish to features people have known and loved for more than a decade, while introducing extensions. If you have never tried Opera before, Opera 11 will change everything you know about browsing.”
