AmigaHeretic (991368) writes "Today we released Opera 11.50 aka Swordfish. With its new streamlined body and highly powerful interior it becomes the most dangerous predator on the internet waters. Opera Swordfish, with its innovative Speed Dial extensions, makes your Speed Dial more alive than ever before. Now you can get all the information you need straight from your Speed Dial, without the need to go to the page. All of this is made possible thanks to the smart Speed Dial extensions, which you can download and install from our addons portal. Beside that, Opera 11.50 allows you to easily synchronize your passwords between computers. This way you can access your favorite services, without repeatedly typing in your passwords on different computers. Opera 11.50 is equipped with our newest rendering engine — Presto 2.9.168 — featuring up to 20% faster rendering of CSS and SVG, support for HTML5 tag , Session History and Navigation and many other enhancements."
