Opera 11 beta is now available for download from www.opera.com/browser/next/. The beta is loaded with new features. Some are new, while others are improvements to existing Opera features like tabs and mouse gestures.
@topr8: I find your melancholic comment about Opera having "lost its way" slightly amusing.
As for an independent source for the 7% figure, that is based on Opera's report to their investors (freely available from opera.com), as well as Internet World Stats. 140 million reported Opera users, and 2 billion reported people online in total = 7%. Simple.
since they don't really reply to bug reportsEither they do or they don't. They did in my case - I might even have it somewhere but even if I posted it here, you would still choose not to believe it.
A browser is likely infinitely more complex than whatever you are working on.Apart from the rendering engine (which I have not criticised) the remainder of the work of a browser is pretty straightforward - it's just a user interface. It takes time but it's not tricky in the way that writing a video codec is (not that I've ever done that but I have implemented what is probably the smallest inflate engine to be found).
a spell-check dictionary (English not American) and Flashblock.
The size I quoted was for Opera 11. I suppose that means that the current stable release (10.x) is larger than Firefox - oops.
