Extensions will be useful but really, they are a geek thing that Joe Public doesn't care about much.
Whilst Opera is very good, it can feel quite retarded. For instance, in Firefox, you can open a bookmark in a new tab by holding down the control key, similarly you can open the previous page in a new tab. Also you can drag bookmarks around and edit/delete them with a right-click (rather than opening a bookmark organiser). Also, in Firefox, a right-click on the forward/backward buttons brings up the window history. Also, some features in Opera are well buried, such as how to change the spell-check dictionary. Indeed, the properties/setup dialogs in general need to be looked at - they're a complete mess (they're so bad that they could have been designed by Microsoft).
As for the name Opera 11, personally I think a change would be a good idea. Keep the name Opera but, if version 11 is intended to be revolutionary call it something like Opera Warp, or Opera Starlight - anything would be more evocative than 11 - that's just plain blandsville. Also, a decent name might inspire the developers - they definitely need something. (I'd start with a kick up the bum but perhaps that's just me.)
In fact, having thought about it, maybe Opera Crescendo would be a good choice for a new name.
