Opera 11 for Mac debuts with tab stacking, gestures, extensions and more
Opera 11 for Mac is finally available with all sorts of cool features for you to play with, like "tab stacking," mouse gesture support and extensions. Here's an initial run-down of the major features available in Opera 11 for Mac.
Tab stacking is pretty cool. I'm "one of those" people who typically has a huge number of tabs open at once. Opera reinforces my bad habit by allowing me to drag tabs on top of one another, creating a pop-up window of all the tabs in a stack. Each window displays a thumbnail of its pages' contents, and a click brings it forward.
The mouse gestures will take some getting used to. Click the right mouse button to bring up the gesture UI, a large circle featuring icons for common functions, like back, forward, stop and open in a new tab. Not having used it, I'll guess that keyboard shortcuts are faster. Of course, I keep dozens of tabs open so what do I know?
Extensions work as you'd expect, adding additional functionality to your browsing experience. There's more, of course, which you can read about here. We'll have a more detailed look at Opera 11 for Mac soon. Until then, check out the brief promo video after the break.
