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!

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.
