Our Download of the Day today is Opera 11.60 Beta 1 (Build 1147).

 

A full-featured Internet browser, Opera includes pop-up blocking, tabbed browsing, integrated searches, and advanced functions like Opera's groundbreaking E-mail program, RSS Newsfeeds and IRC chat. And because we know that our users have different needs, you can customize the look and content of your Opera browser with a few clicks of the mouse.

• Trash Can: Instantly reopen recently closed tabs.

• Mouse Gestures: With Opera you can navigate the Web with your mouse.

• Opera Link: Synchronize data of your choice online, or among different computers and devices.

• Quick Find: Opera remembers not only the titles and addresses, but also the actual content of the Web pages you visit.

• Feed Preview: Preview a Feed by clicking on the feed icon, and you will see it in clean and efficient multiple-column layout.

• Quick and customizable Web search: Get quick access to Google, eBay, Amazon and more with the search field in the upper right corner.
