Opera Software has released the latest update to its desktop Web browser, Opera 11.50, available for the first time in Swahili and Zulu. Now supporting more than 50 languages, the Opera 11.50 browser has also added Bengali and Punjabi.
Codenamed "Swordfish", Opera 11.50 features improvements to its Speed Dial launch page, synchronisation and design.
The latest Opera version offers social media feeds, immediate stock quotes, current weather conditions, up-to-the minute news and sports scores, and much more, via Speed Dial. Instead of thumbnails and links to your top sites, users can embed Speed Dial with extensions that keep them updated – instantly – on what is happening around the Web
* Take weather updates, for example. Why click through to a website when you can get the current conditions live at a glance? Or, why not be the first to know the hot news of the day just by opening a new tab? We think Speed Dial extensions are a smarter way of getting to the content you want and need. There are already more than 50 SpeedDial extensions available.
"The good news is, no matter what browser you choose, you'll get something like this- eventually," says Jan Standal, vice-presdient: desktop products at Opera Software. "The question is how long do you want to wait? With Opera, you can experience Speed Dial extensions along with our other pioneering features today."
Opera 11.50 also offers password synchronization, a new and streamlined design, a new graphics engine and an improved developer environment.
