Opera 11 beta adds tab stacks & speed boost [Video]

Opera has pushed out the first beta of Opera 11, the latest iteration of its browser and the first to support tab stacking. Billed as a less cluttered and more intuitive way to deal with tabs than the regular side-by-side layout, groups can be organized by site or by theme, and new stacks created by simply dropping one tab onto another (a little like how iOS folders work). Meanwhile Opera 11 also gets extension support, mouse gestures and more.

Opera Blasts Back with Version 11 Alpha

Opera Blasts Back with Version 11 Alpha

Remember the last time you opened Opera? I can't. Not because I don't think it's a good way to surf the web, but because there's not been any good news about it for at least a couple of days! These internets think in such a way, I'm not alone, and the folks responsible for creating Opera basically know this too. Thus, they're popping out a new baby: Opera 11. The alpha version of the browser is out today, and you're free to use it - and it will have Extensions!

The Daily Slash: July 8th 2010

Thursday night -- the night before the end of the work week. We can feel the excitement. Can you? Well, unless your work week is just getting started, or doesn't even start until this weekend. Then we feel your pain. But let's try to focus on the fun tonight, shall we? Welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. In the Best of R3 Media, we've got a new release date for the Vibrant, Apple may have used their kill switch, and Opera Mini's been updated.

Over one million Opera Mini downloads already

Apple approving Opera Mini for iPhone was perhaps the most surprising event of the week, and it comes as little surprise that owners of the smartphone have been downloading it in their droves.  After leaping to the number one download spot in the 22 featured Apple Stores on the company's site, Opera have just announced that the browser was downloaded more than one million times in its first day of availability in each market.

Apple Approves Opera Mini for iPhone [video]

Well, well, well. Who would have seen this coming? Sure enough, it seems that everything is about to change. Or, if you believe that when Apple actually does something as crazy as allow a third-party developer to get a web browser (you know, like Safari) approved for the App Store as a sign of the end times, we'll let you read into this what you will. But, Opera has officially announced today that Apple has given the green light to their Opera Mini web browser for the App Store.

Opera Mini for iPhone at MWC 2010: Will it ever get released?

Opera Mini for iPhone at MWC 2010: Will it ever get released?

Browser developer Opera have revealed that they plan to launch a version of Opera Mini for iPhone at Mobile World Congress 2010 next week.  As in other versions of Opera Mini on different platforms, the iPhone app will support the company's compression system which shrinks down webpages and results in faster load-times and reduced data traffic.  It will also throw in tabbed browsing (something still absent from Safari on the iPhone) and a password manager.

However, while Opera may be previewing the new app, that doesn't mean users will be able to download it post-MWC.  Apple have previously shown themselves to be resolutely opposed to permitting third-party browsers in the App Store, which means iPhone and iPod touch owners won't actually be able to get it, at least not legitimately.

Orange Tabbee web-tablet gets video hands-on

While all eyes may be on the JooJoo/CrunchPad (and most editorial concentrating on skewering the home web-tablet segment) it's easy to forget that there are other devices out there, already on sale and offering just about everything the contentious slate promises.  One such example is the Orange Tabbee, announced back in April and on sale in France since June for €249 ($362).  Charbax caught up with the 7-inch tablet at LeWeb and shot some hands-on video.
