Opera Software has just confirmed that one of the enhanced features in the upcoming Opera 11.10 release will be a new Speed Dial which layout is now called “Speed Dial Flow”.
As a result, a new snapshot reveals the very first piece of all upcoming changes that are yet to come (see screenshot above).
Please note that this is not a final speed dial version.
Our guess is: Google Chrome like (“Most Visited sites”) behavior.
In addition to that, there will be some subtle animations and messages to remind new Opera users about all the features available in Opera web browser.

Here comes the very first build of Opera 11.10 (codenamed Barracuda) by Opera Software.
Before you become too excited, please keep in mind that this is just a first glimpse of what’s yet to come and therefore, does not include a lot of new features.
According to just published post, the Core has been upgraded from version 2.7.62 to 2.8.99 (a very big step forward, according to Manuela Hutter) and now includes Web Open Font Format (WOFF) support.
Wolfgang Kandek, CTO of security risk and compliance management provider Qualys, revealed that approximately 80% of web browsers are susceptible to exploits of bugs that have already been patched. Kandek attributed this mostly to Windows, saying “All the different patching mechanisms are confusing, a bit of this and some of that.”
As discovered by BrowserCheck (which scans Windows, Mac and Linux machines for vulnerable browsers along with browser plug-ins), Oracle’s Java was the most probable plug-in to be outdated for the second year in a row, comprising a total of 40% scanned systems. Adobe’s Reader and Apple’s QuickTime were second and third, taking up 32% and 25% respectively.
Proposed solutions include:
- Microsoft taking charge of patching crucial third party plug-ins via single updater.
- Moving to HTML5, so browsers would no longer require various audio and video processing plug-ins.
