Download Opera 11.60 Final

Here comes an early Christmas present for all the Opera users, as Norwegian browser maker has just released the final version of Opera 11.60 for you to download.

What’s new, you may ask? While it adds additional web standards support and fixes few bugs here and there, the most noticeable change in Opera 11.60 is a new mail reader, which is significantly improved when compared to previous versions of Opera.

As far as other changes go, the address bar has received a star icon that can be used to add your favorite web pages to speed dial or bookmarks folder.

Unfortunately, Opera 11.60 address bar still does not display web site favicons, requiring you to read the URL itself instead on relying on pictures, which is the opposite of a friendly UI.

Opera 11.60 Final Changelog

  • Two-lined message list: Opera Mail will now default to “list on the left, message on the right”, with the newest message on top, and showing message threads.
  • Mail grouping: Opera will automatically group messages by date. You can also group them by unread status, by pinned status, or not at all.
  • Cleaned up look: The mail toolbars are simplified, and icons have been redesigned.
  • New settings dialogs: The “View” dropdown menu with all its sub-menus has been replaced by an overlay dialog that can be reached by clicking the “wrench” button.
  • Pinning: You can now “pin” messages with one click in the message list or in the message headers, to mark a message for attention. This pinning is mapped to the IMAP \Flagged feature, so it corresponds to “starring” and “flagging” in other IMAP clients, and with Gmail’s starred messages.

For a complete list of changes, see the following page.

  • Whyamiusingthis

    I really like the new mail client… very clean and easier to manage mails, although it looks very similar to Microsoft Outlook to certain extent…

    • http://twitter.com/Andylee_Sato Andylee_Sato

      I don’t really see a problem with Opera Mail looking a little bit like Outlook or Thunderbird or any other Mail Client as long as they do not copy their weak points ;-)

  • Saex Conroy

    maybe opera will get better in time and i might start using it around version 13 or so

    • http://twitter.com/bricky149 Shane Bundy

      If you’re waiting for hardware acceleration and WebGL then they’re slated for Opera 12. ;)

      • Saex Conroy

        im waiting for overall revamp

        • ChavBrowser

          Already happened. New UI and JS engine in 10.50, new HTML engine and JS engine in 11.60, etc.

    • Guest

      the best browser on the market getting even better

      yeep, it sure will

      • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

        People like Saex will always have the same excuse, they will never try it.

  • Maxthon/Chrome

    lets give this a try

  • Armin

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ve been checking every day for like a week now. xD

  • Mikah

    I’m surprised its been released release candidate 2 did not seem ready to me, several sites I use have scrolling problems. The new mail client is a big improvement, looking forward to having more frequent Opera 12 snapshots

    • http://twitter.com/Andylee_Sato Andylee_Sato

      Scrolling problems do persist on my side too, but in total it is quite a step forward from 11.52 and therefore I accept this especially as Opera 12 is due soon. :-)

    • ChavBrowser

      What scrolling problems? The ones that are in 11.52 as well and obviously take time to fix?

  • Saex Conroy

    still incompatible with websites like yahoo

    • Everybody

      Yahoo works fine, so does other sites.

      • Saex Conroy

        dont make me install it for the 2nd time today just to make you a damn screenshot, its been tested on 2 different computers and it still does the same shit

        i like it, but its not good enough, thats why i hope by version 13 or so.. it will be useable

        • Everybody

          What “shit”? Since you haven’t provided any specifics you’re either lying troll or moron that expect someone will fix bug without knowing what the problem exactly is. I tested everything on Yahoo that I could think of and had zero problems.

          • Saex Conroy

            ure fucking annoying me u fucking idiot … look what u made me do http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/9574/jkthgjhg.png

          • yours truly

            What is the problem? I’m not trying to nag you, but I don’t see the “shit” you refer to. They don’t look identical, partially due to the ad that is displayed in opera, and not in Firefox, but they both seem usable.
            Do you have AdBlock installed on FireFox? That might explain the difference in height too. Other than that, I don’t see any difference. And I certainly don’t see any “shit”.

          • Mikah

            Fire fox & Opera display the page the same apart from the ad which you should be able to block by right clicking the page & Blocking content.
            Are you still using Windows XP both Firefox & Opera look old fashioned ? 

          • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

            Confirmed, youre a complete idiot troll, no problem can be seen from your screenshot, go to hell.

          • Anonymous

            Calm done kids.

            He is talking about the utter ignorance of opera rendering certain pages

            You can clearly see that on some sites opera has trouble adhering to standard which isn’t a biggie

            You are the one whom put fuel to fire by calling him names.

            You have to remember most people if not all take an offense to name calling

          • Anonymous

            Now I am not just picking on you. It was Wrong for him to call you names.

            But please remember you reap what you sow

            Try to argue in a civil manner

          • ChavBrowser

            What standards does Opera have trouble adhering to? Doesn’t exactly sound like you have a clue what you are talking about.

            Ignorance of rendering? You think a browser engine is a human being?

          • Anonymous

            Now your beefs with me?

            You presume you are always right don’t you?

            Am I wrong to guess that you do not know what browser.js is?

            You know the big patch file to make Opera work properly with sites.

            Sites not standards compliant? 

            Well it has problems with sites that work great in others without browser tags.

            Why don’t you yell at the post box next

          • tsk-tsk

            You can’t actually list any of these claimed standards that Opera has trouble adhering to, then?

            All you can do is to blow smoke?

            Keep trollin’!

          • Anonymous

            No evidence because opera deletes threads that it doesn’t like.

            I hope your new parser doesnt kill your page. You know sometimes it’s a garbled mess

            Enjoy your infinite element loading.

            How about you list opera can do well. No stuff on

          • tsk-tsk

            Nice excuse for making a claim you can’t back up with actual facts.

            You can’t actually list any of these claimed standards that Opera has trouble adhering to, then?All you can do is blow smoke?As I said: keep trollin’!

  • Danny

    opera has more bugs than a termite mound!

    • http://my.opera.com/TiRaNiD/about/ TiRANiD

      LOL! I agree that this final 11.60 version still has a pile of bugs.
      For example, since the first 11.60 (and 12.00 as well) snapshots my e-mail client shows that I have 958 unread messages. No kidding, literally 958 messages. I don’t even have that number of messages in my GMail. :D
      This bug was reported several times on Desktop Forum, but still there it is.

      • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

        Try a clean profile, you dont mention if you were upgrading from snapshot to snapshot, which is not recommended.

        • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

          This is a pretty much expected default reply now, no?

          - I have issues with Opera
          - Try clean profile, don’t go with upgrades
          - Bug still here (message deleted by Opera moderator)
          - Looks like bug was solved as we can’t see his posts anymore

          Or:

          - I have issues with thousands of sites
          - Try clean profile, don’t go with upgrades
          - Still same
          - Developers fault

          • ChavBrowser

            You are trolling, right? He was talking about the email client, not page rendering.

            Wow, you really ARE unprofessional and pathetic.

          • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

            Right, and I just said it because in one snapshot when changes started to appear in the format used to store mails, Opera adviced those changes would not apply for upgrades, you had to do a fresh install, at least in respect of the mail client.

            Incredibly he makes it a totally different topic, completely unrelated to the point.

          • MaxthonRocks

            Vygantas’ double standards are quite amazing. The way he censors negative comments on his blog about Maxthon, his new employer(?), kind of makes him look like a hypocrite.

          • Anonymous

            Hey man what is with these idiot trolls.

            Are you able to ban these wankers.

            I got tired of playing that Opera profile game.

            Not installing Opera until they freshen up.

            Moved to a different browser and could not be happier.

          • tsk-tsk

            Why would you ask for yourself to be banned? Doesn’t make sense.

            Enjoy playing the profile game with other browsers!

          • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

            Did you switch to Maxthon?

          • tsk-tsk

            You work for Maxthon now?

          • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

            Me? No, But I considered switching many times and know few people who did (from Opera), so was wondering

          • Anonymous

            I replied to your email.

            Common guys beat yourselves up more

            No ad blocking please

        • http://my.opera.com/TiRaNiD/about/ TiRANiD

          Nope, actually I Wasn’t upgrading from snapshot to snapshot. And Vygantas speaks to the point.

        • tsk-tsk

          Starting with a clean profile is frequently recommended for all browsers, but it’s a bad idea.

          Btw, the morons who claim that the clean profile thing is special to Opera need their heads checked.

          • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

            Never  heard anyone stating such thing, but it is usually uncomplicated to do in Opera, have no idea in others, and I dont care about it.

    • PC`EliTiST

       Opera is running to catch the competition. It’s permamently in beta state.

      Opera has no Final version.

      • ChavBrowser

        Opera has had several final versions, including 11.0, 11.5 and 11.6. At least it takes longer between final versions than Chrome and Firefox, so evidently Chrome and Firefox are released at an earlier beta stage as “final.”

    • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

      But less than Chrome and Firefox.

  • IE & Opera Fanboy

    All these changes are welcome. There seems to be a bit regression in rendering engine. Vertical lines are not that straight in table and I’m still missing ADFS support.

    Will this help Opera to increase its share ?

    • ggtt

      ADFS support? How is that relevant to browsers?

      And vertical lines in tables? That’s a pretty useless comment without an example.

  • Frko

    Opera is Norwegian resistance from EU don’t forget that and they rule on phones that’s for sure.

    Google is too strong…

    Browser market share in next 2 years. 
    Chrome 70%
    Firefox 10%
    IE 10%
    Opera 5%
    rest 5%

    • IE & Opera Fanboy

      Safari might also increase because of iPhone & iPad.

      • Spaceball

        Safari is only increasing because of the iPhone and iPad. Without iPhone and iPad Safari would have a much smaller market share.

    • IE & Opera Fanboy

      Opera is strong today on mobile, but I don’t see that for long. Since Opera doesn’t patent all the innovation and make it easy for others to copy. It would take less time for Google to copy the Opera’s Turbo & compression feature. 

  • ChavBrowser

    Whoa…

    “While it adds additional web standards support and fixes few bugs here and there”

    “Few” bugs here and there? Wow, someone really should do his job. Not to mention the brand new HTML5 parser and full JavaScript 5.1 support, both of which are HUGE additions.

    • Anonymous

      Is that you Havard?

      Are you trolling here again?

      For shame.

      • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

        You cant consider trolling when somebody points to the fact that you made a really poor job about a version that included massive changes and important ones.

  • rennmaxbeta

    The bookmark star isn’t really a new feature for Opera. It’s a returning feature from a previous version that users have been requesting back for some time.

    Best browser for me.

    • http://hector-macias.blogspot.com Hector Macias Ayala

      A featured tested like 5 years ago, and that never made it to a final version til now, officialy a new feature.

      Auto Stack could be next, they promised to have an option to enable it a year ago, and then forgotten about it, one day…
