Opera 11.60 beta debuts with double-rainbow support

Opera Software today released the beta of Opera 11.60, the next update of its flagship desktop browser. The beta introduces Ragnarök, Opera's implementation of the new HTML5 parsing algorithm. Because HTML5 specifies how browsers should handle incorrect code, browsers will soon handle coding missteps the same way - a big win for web-application compatibility across browsers.

Before we start the presentation this week, we would like to state that our insatiable love for mooncakes did not influence our choice in Member of the Week. Any such correlation is most probably coincidental.The blog is in VN Vietnamese. Don't worry though, we added some translation magic to the links.

Before there was Extensions, there was Extend Opera. In other words, since Opera didn't have a proper repository like addons.opera.com for Extensions, this UserCSS and UserJS repository was the only way Opera users could tweak sites in Opera. And it was started by one dedicated community member !

After the launch of Opera Extensions you might think that there is no room for an amazing site like this. Fortunately there still is and the site has active contributors that create and maintain amazing stuff for Opera.

This week we would like the spotlight to shine on the brains behind the operation.

It's after she started doing the famous 365 challenge we really saw the posts pile on though. From rather obscure yellow dotty things to more of her amazing family. Perhaps this is the inspiration you need to join 365?

The automated sharing functionality is now a lot better, it contains more accurate information about your posts! As a bonus, it should also be a lot faster! :yes:

One small thing though. To activate the new Facebook implementation you need to remove the previous Facebook connection and connect again. This can be done through "Account > Social networks". Update it now and give it a spin!
