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  • New settings dialogs: The “View” dropdown menu with all its sub-menus has been replaced by an overlay dialog that can be reached by clicking the “wrench” button.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.

    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…

    • Andylee_Sato says:

      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 ;-)

  2. Saex Conroy says:

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

  3. Maxthon/Chrome says:

    lets give this a try

  4. Armin says:

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

  5. Mikah says:

    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

    • Andylee_Sato says:

      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 says:

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

  6. Saex Conroy says:

    still incompatible with websites like yahoo

    • Everybody says:

      Yahoo works fine, so does other sites.

      • Saex Conroy says:

        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 says:

          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 says:

            ure fucking annoying me u fucking idiot … look what u made me do

          • yours truly says:

            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 says:

            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 ? 

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

          • Anonymous says:

            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 says:

            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 says:

            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 says:

            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 says:

            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 says:

            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 says:

            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’!

  7. Danny says:

    opera has more bugs than a termite mound!

    • TiRANiD says:

      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.

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

        • 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


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

          • ChavBrowser says:

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

            Wow, you really ARE unprofessional and pathetic.

          • 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 says:

            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 says:

            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 says:

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

            Enjoy playing the profile game with other browsers!

          • Did you switch to Maxthon?

          • tsk-tsk says:

            You work for Maxthon now?

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

          • Anonymous says:

            I replied to your email.

            Common guys beat yourselves up more

            No ad blocking please

        • TiRANiD says:

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

        • tsk-tsk says:

          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.

    • PC`EliTiST says:

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

      Opera has no Final version.

      • ChavBrowser says:

        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.”

    • But less than Chrome and Firefox.

  8. IE & Opera Fanboy says:

    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 says:

      ADFS support? How is that relevant to browsers?

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

  9. Frko says:

    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%

  10. ChavBrowser says:


    “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.

  11. rennmaxbeta says:

    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.

    • 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…
