    Opera's browsing speed crown is now undisputed, so there is no need to mention it anymore.;)

    What's new are Tab Stacking, visual mouse gestures, new address field and the many Extensions it offers. :D

    Let's see the others play catch-up now:p

    Undisputed in the world of nanana1 where evidence is unrequired? What articles exactly would you be referencing in this regard, your own personal experience? :) They even removed their claims to be no1 on their website.

    It was wayy too fast, install RC1 then isntalling RC3 already then final... I have a bad feeling 11.01 will be tomorow...

    I am using "urlfilter" for Opera 11 which is simple and effective.:D

    Wait for Fanboy site to be up and running.;)

    I hate to say this but they released it before it was done !!

    (Rant Mode)

    1.) Broken install made itself the default browser without asking !

    2.) Uninstall leaves IE unable to connect to the internet !

    3.) Won't load My Opera without crashing !

    4.) Freezes without notice (Not Responding)

    5.) Back to OPERA 10.63 for me...

    Put 11.00 back in the oven for awhile please !!

    (End Rant Mode)

    Have a good day !!

    my exeriences in response to above,

    select options during install you can unselect the default browser.

    i did not have this problem at all with ie im running ie9 rc

    my opera loads fine here no crashes

    have yet to have it freeze i have it on prob a dozen systems and my wife uses it also without issue actually opera is actually loading many pages properly for her websites where chrome now is not..

    i actually did not like 10.63 and switched as soon as 11 was out in snapshot and love it.

    just pointing out everyone has different experiences

    I have used Opera since about version 2.11 under Windows 3.11.

    1.) No Options were offered by the installer, just accept license agreement.

    2.) Finally have it loading, OK at some sites, maybe Opera is just overloaded but it should not crash the browser.

    3.) Back to 10.63 until 11.01 I guess.

    Opera 10.63 is working fine.

    Has anyone tried Opera 11 with Sandboxie yet? I have a number of exceptions and direct access allowances set up so I can preserve my mail/cookies/bookmarks/etc. - But my experience is that with the major Opera releases, they change the paths to all those resources.

    Just wondering if I'm going to be able to install and go without issue.

    Also, any word on features that ought to be disabled out the gate? I know some versions of Opera started running a webserver without asking the user. I'd like to disable that, geolocation, or anything privacy-breaching as soon as I install the new version, if those features are enabled by default.

    I grabbed the installer direct from Opera's Site and now have an Options button in the installer.

    But it is still crashing on first run, the page will not finish loading.

    Turned off extensions and Unite and am sending this from Opera 11.00.

    Have a good day??

    click options button during install.. then towards the bottom of the box there is a checkbox to make it default or not.

    the first time i loaded opera 11 it crashed but has been fine since.
    I love the tabs stack feature. great for separating different subjects I am looking at.
    the new address bar is a nice feature showing the correct domain which helps avoid phising sites.
    I have also activated the on demand plugins loader option. its very useful when loading a website with multiple flash videos because you have to click to start each video. it also means you dont have a ruined website experience by having adverts with audio with i hate since i listen to music while browsing the web.
    I havent tryed any extensions yet.

    When you open a folder of bookmarks, by default the tab on the far-right is selected. Does anyone know how to make the tab on the far-left selected, a la Firefox?

    Well, the adblocker seems to work, I am experimenting with some other extensions ... Opera hasn't crashed on me yet (about 10 minutes since upgrade) which is a bit of a record for Opera I think ... ;)

    I haven't seen a WOT extension yet, Ghostery would be nice, I think Opera ASA is making some progress.

    They do have a history of releasing 'finals' a bit prematurely though, although having said that, SRWare Iron (with its sheer speed) would be virtually perfect if only they could release one as stable as Chrome. So I suppose Opera is no worse.

    Whether this new Opera release improves its popularity is difficult to say. Either way, it is certainly a step forward.

    Edit: Spoke too soon ... adblocker isn't what I thought it was ... oh well ... maybe another time or place o_O

    Back to SeaMonkey & Iron then ...

    i think with the adition of extensions, operas popularity will improve greatly, once it has some time to grow and get some good working extensions like a proper adblocker and hopefully the lastpass addon is improved a bit to be more comparable to the firefox version and such
