Opera 11.10

#1 Post by Zolko » Tue Apr 12, 2011 6:09 pm

Opera has a brand new browser, version 11.10, and of course Linux versions of it. And guess what ? There is a Mepis variant !!!

Apparently things are not that good for Linux support from Opera...

Opera was the best browser at some point in the past, this makes me a bit sad, but I switched to Chromium anyways...

Surprising! I have 12.18 running fine on M12, with the exception of the occasional multimedia site--still my standard browser.

I didn't say it doesn't work fine, I was just pointed out that Opera seems to drop Linux support, this is about the future, if the current version works fine for you stay with it, but in one or two year you might want to use some new technologies, have you vulnerabilities patched and still make sure it will install on you distro... not a good prospect if Opera stopped working on a Linux version.

You got me to Opera Adrian, but in the mean time I went to Chrome as well. Interesting heh.

I use Firefox and Opera ATM. I have SWareIron installed also.
