Opera 11 Alpha released with add-ons, speed boost

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

The first alpha release of Opera’s flagship web browser has been made available.


Unusually for a new browser release the onus in this release is not on speed but on the newly introduced ‘Extensions’ framework.

14 extensions are  available – at the the time writing -  in the Opera Extensions gallery @

As we mentioned in previous coverage the installation, positioning and UI of extensions is almost identical to that of Google Chrome/ium.



It wouldn’t be fair to judge the potential for Opera Extensions on the (very) slim-pickings available today so I’ll leave any further comment to you.


Opera 11 Alpha can be downloaded in handy .deb form for Ubuntu @ or via the direct .deb download links below.
