    Now, 8 days since Opera Swordfish is successfully hunting out in the deep, warm waters, with more than 32 000 000 downloads, we would like to use the opportunity to thank you all for the excellent help and support in making Opera 11.50 our most successful release ever! cheers

    And since the weather outside of Opera’s HQ is somewhat tropical (relatively warm, with pouring rains), our developers were able to catch one of the fastest tropical fishes in the world yes So today we are happy to present you with the very first snapshot of our next major release, codenamed Wahoo (what will eventually become version 12). It’s currently in its embryo pre-alpha state and only includes some important bug fixes and overall polishing, with all the fresh and juicy stuff coming a bit later wink

    That's actually a pretty nice name. I like Opera's speed and resource efficiency.

    I think 11:50 is outstanding in most respects, although it may very well be " Opera 11.50 our most successful release ever", but I really wish they'd fix that disappearing favicon bug. Then it really would be virtually perfect!
