Opera 11.60 satisfies holiday techno-lust
Just in time for the holiday season, Opera Software is introducing Opera 11.60, the newest version of Opera’s desktop browser.

“It’s better to give than to receive, so why not give that special someone a new browser,” says Jan Standal, VP of desktop products at Opera Software. “People spend more time working with their browser than they do with their car, so it makes sense to shop around and consider their options. If your best friend drove a Yugo, you’d help them find something else, right?”

Using yet another car analogy, Standal continues: “If we were a car, this browser would be an extremely potent, yet comfortable, four-by-four. Sleek and stylish, and with no CO2 emissions whatsoever. Your neighbors will envy you.”

The company says millions of people have never stepped out of the comfort zone of their computer’s default browser.

Opera 11.60 bring a "Star" button that lets users quickly add favorite sites to a Speed Dial by clicking it. Opera’s email client has been redesigned to keep with the company’s design aesthetic.

Opera 11.60 also includes a new HTML5 parsing algorithm which helps unify code discrepancies among browsers. It is also faster when establishing secure connections, thanks to some new code, boosting speed on SSL sites.
