Scanned & Checked: Aug 30 2012 08:17 PM

When we last updated Opera, we made sure it was still virus and malware free and the developer's site had no proven issues in any of the reputable site advisory services. In the unlikely event you notice any issues, please let us know immediately, otherwise we will schedule this software for another scan the next time it is updated.

Opera 11 continues to have the same problems it has had for years now...
Its 'Presto' rendering engine will not properly display many websites including facebook. Opera is so fixated on web standards despite the fact many webmasters code for IE and/or Firefox. Our world is not fair - get over it Opera.

Apple's Safari and Google Chrome don't seem to have a problem displaying pages with their 'webkit' rendering engine ... Opera, grow-up and play nice or you will be forever relegated to the same 2 percent market share.

Opera on handheld devices is better.
Opera's claim to fame has always been "we are the most standards compliant browser."
But, is this claim true? If yes, how do we know? As it turns out there is a way to objectively check this claim.

There is the infamous 'Sunspider' test which tests almost nothing of significance for real world usage. Then there's 'ACID3' test which tests a little more but again nothing of significance for real world usage.

Now we come to http://test262.ecmascript.org/#
which test a complete battery of all modern agreed upon standards. Clich RUN on top of page.

result: Opera is the least standards compliant browser.
To all the above now Opera's print module is broken. Highlight some text on most any webpage and print your selection. Compare print formating with any other browser. Also, Opera's new to 11.50 "Featherweight" UI is plain ugly.


There must be some deep genetic flaw in the Norwegian bloodline for their developers are some of the most stubborn mules I have ever corresponded with. Recently, Opera's worldwide market share has dipped a bit from 2% down to 1.9%. I anticipate further erosion of market share with 11.50.
With 11.60 Opera finally lives up to the "we are the most standards compliant browser" claim passing all major tests including ecmascipt. However, Opera's print module is simply horrid! Do not use Opera in an office environment where print to physical printer or PDF print is needed.

The "Featherweight" skin continues to be as ugly as ever but now "Windows native skin" has been removed from this build.
No GPU acceleration for at least another 3 months. Alpha builds available at website now includes some GPU acceleration.

Opera for hand-held devices is truly innovative but I anticipate continued erosion of market share on the desktop.
Marko, that screenshot of Opera is as old as the Roman Empire.
Yeh, point taken on that one Bala :)
Seems Bala doesn't like Opera..lol
It's had some issues in the past but i always liked it's speed and some features so i'm gonna try this ver and see what happens
Its not that I don't like Opera, it's just that every other browser is superior ... some alternatives ...

Firefox, Pale Moon browser, SeaMonkey, Epic browser and Waterfox.

Google Chrome, Comodo Dragon, SRWare Iron, CoolNovo and Element Browser.

Internet Explorer, Avant Browser, Sleipnir, SlimBrowser, TheWorld Browser, Risingware and AM Browser.

Maxthon. (the unappreciated browser)

Well, alright, maybe Safari is worse.
Pardon my ignorance but what does 'Final' mean? The last ever release, or the last of version 11? Thanks:)
Never really questioned it myself blogwrad, but I presume it's neither beta, release candidate or anything else, it's the final version after beta, RC, etc.   The build up with beta and RC are versions which, presumably, people can report bugs and changes required, etc, and then "Final" is a result of all those.   Normally, the next beta or RC will have different version numbers - in this case probably 13.1 or 12.1 or something along those lines :)
