Download Opera 11 Alpha

The wait is over. Opera Software has just released the alpha build of Opera 11 web browser.

The good news: it brings a little bit more than just extensions support.
The bad news: as of this moment, Opera extensions catalog is down.

Including already announced extensions support, alpha build also introduces:

- Opera Presto 2.6.37 engine, offering hundreds of bug fixes, enhanced Web Standards support as well as performance improvements and Websockets support.
- A new mail panel and bookmarks bar
- Enable plug-ins only on demand
- Updated installer

P.S. It looks like upgrade page has not been updated as well, as it still displays Opera 10.63 information after installation.

Update: Extensions catalog is now up.
