Opera 11.60 'Tunny' Released With Ragnarök HT 211

First time accepted submitter iZarKe writes "Version 11.60 of Opera Browser for Desktop was released today. Significant changes: the inclusion of their new HTML5 rendering engine "Ragnarök", a revamped address bar, full ECMAScript 5.1 support, support for CSS3 Radial Gradients (finally), and a very revamped Mail panel. Originally, these features were set to be released with their next major version, 12.00. However, due to more work needed for the hardware acceleration feature also to be included in Opera 12, the 11.60 intermediary release came to be, as they didn't want to hold back the other new features for that long a time."

    I started with IE, moved to Mozilla, migrated to Firefox, became disillusioned and switched to Chrome.

    Then I started using Opera and now all is well again, much like the switch from IE to Mozilla.

    I.E. and Chrome come from revenue generating corporations. With the recent unease of Firefox's financial tether to Google possibly coming to an end. What's keeping Opera afloat?

    On the side I'm trying out Opera right now for the next week. If all fairs well I'll move off Chrome and onto Opera as my experience with Chrome is in the "meh" stage, that's ther stage right after the honeymoon stage is over. Firefox lost me when it couldn't control the plugin version incompatibility with versions of Firefox.

    I have to say, after only using it for about 10 minutes, and using the developer tools, very nifty! Plus, it makes it easy to send custom-made http requests, including inserting your own headers and content body.

    With firefox, there's an extension for that called Poster.

    I have to agree, Opera's developer tools are top-notch. I'm just making a program that needs to read DOM-tree from websites and it comes really handy - one click in the developer tools and it shows whole page as DOM-tree and exactly the information I need.

    And selling the engine for other things. Adobe used (uses?) Opera for Creative Suite. I think it powers the help system or some part of the menu system in that. I would imagine there are other similar uses that I've just never heard of.
