There's a link up to the changelog [opera.com] for 7.11, but it's broken right now. Can't be long before they release it though!

Seriously though, can Opera 8 be far behind? I anticipate a mid-summer (for us northern hemisphere dwellers!) release.

By the way... the changelog v.711, is LIVE!

<added>There are quite a few additions. Some are very interesting, including support for the deprecated ALINK attribute. Nice usability upgrades as well. Once, again, Opera proves to the most advanced browser available.</added>

v7.11 --> got it!

Just pulled down 7.11. I see one thing fixed that was broken by 7.02 with CSS placement. I can't explain it other than to say my personal home page akt zero .com doesn't show my slogan in the right place in 7.02 but was right in 6.x

Mods, please feel free to edit my domain name out if it's not appropriate. (it's just my personal site)

Rewind is pretty handy actually. It really does emulate a rewind button. Say you opened four seperate browser panes... each to a different site. Opera remembers the "beginning" of each browsing session for each browser pane. You can return to the initial page, no matter where each pane takes you, by hitting REWIND.

Imagine going to the W3.org site, but your entry page was an url that indicated an named anchor for a section on Character Entities. Surf wherever, hit rewind, and you are back where you started from. Great!

The back button, of course, allows you to "go back" one page at a time. Rewind brings you back to where you started from....

Thanks, papabaer. So for each browser window, does it go back to the very first page that you were on when that window opened or does it only rewind to the first page in a particular domain?

Added: Papabaer, after checking it out a little more thoroughly, I can't seem to get rewind to function any differently from the back button. It always just takes me to the previous page. Is there a certain situation where this might not be the case? I even tried your w3.org example.

The REWIND feature emulates chapter search. Navigate to a particular domain, surf a bit, rewind to the beginning. Go to another domain, navigate, then rewind to the first page of that domain... hit REWIND again and you are taken back to the last page of the previous domain, REWIND one more time and you are back to your entry page on that domain.

It's really a pretty handy feature.

Notes... now that is the BOMB! If there was any doubts about which of the modern browsers had the richest feature set.. that argument (weak as it was!) can be laid to rest.

Notes RULES!

papabaer, see the addition to my post above. I'm still not getting the rewind button to work the way you describe.

I agree that the notes feature seems useful, although I can't figure out exactly how. Can you explain how you foresee using it?

  • copy affiliate codes to notes (Great for use at Amazon or CJ for instance, especially in combination with multiple windows - copy to notes, retrieve as needed when editing your pages.)
  • SEO homework - keyword/key-phrase - send to notes, retrieve later... or email.
  • research, research, research! - grab highligted sections of any page or document with a simple 'right-click' or "ctr+shift+c"
  • soure code and stylesheets
  • quick links that can easily be deleted after a session - drag to trash!
  • more SEO action...! Very handy.

    Lots more uses I am certain.... ;)

    When I first reread this, I thought you were talking about Lotus Notes!

    I've used the Notes a little bit, but haven't fell hard for it yet. You ought to be able to rightclick a link and put it in there. I mean, yeah, I know that's what bookmarks are for, but the notes allow you to add more text around them for specific reasons.
