Although the Opera 11.10 has bee made available for download, users have been advised that the release is in its Alpha phase which is designed for testing environments and should not be deployed as the default browser, due to various problems and crashes are expected to arise.
Opera Desktop Team announced:
In this build, Core has been upgraded from version 2.7.62 to 2.8.99, which is a pretty big step forward. With this Core upgrade comes the implementation of the Web Open Font Format (WOFF). In addition, a batch of changes to network compatibility has been implemented. The purpose of these changes is to modify our network behavior so that we are more compatible with other web browsers.
1. Disable Cookie2 by default, with an option to enable it again
2. Send more compatible Accept header on second request
3. Disable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 by default
4. Make sure redirects from http to https are labelled secure
5. Remove the use of master password for client certificates
6. Added a preference to disable cross-network protection
