Today, the 31st of May, Norwegian developer Opera Software announced that it made a public Beta version of Opera 11.50 codename Swordfish (a highly migratory, predatory fish characterized by a long, flat bill taht can cut through the water with great ease and agility thanks to its streamlined physique) available to the public. You can grab it straight from Opera Software here.

Before you go get Opera 11.50 Beta, I have to issue the mandatory Beta warnings: the browser may be buggy, it may not work properly, it may ruin your day. Get it only if you understand what Beta testing is all about; otherwise, you are better off waiting for the final version to be released.

If you do decided to go ahead and get Opera 11.50 Beta, here is what the Swordfish has to offer:
Speed Dial Extensions – these are extensions that can be installed as Speed Dials. Thanks to the new Speed Dial extensions, developers can create live previews of web pages and other decorations for Speed Dial. After you get Opera 11.50 Beta, you can check out a few Speed Dial extensions, mainly the first 10 to be approved by Opera Software as part of the Team Up competition.
Polished looks – the Opera Software team has continued to polish Speed Dials’ looks.
Password sync – passwords can be synchronized through Opera Link. Through Opera Link you can also sync your bookmarks, your Speed Dial, custom search engine preferences, notes, typed browser history and more.
Opera Next – an independent Opera install that lets you run Opera 11.50 Beta alongside your stable installation of Opera.
Improved bits and pieces – various bug fixes, tab handling improvements, upgraded Presto layout engine, better SVG performance, and so on.

“We don’t make releases for the sake of releases, nor do we make innovations for the sake of innovation,” said Jan Standal, VP of desktop products, Opera. “We create browsers that make the Web faster and easier to use, and the newest features in Swordfish support that goal.”
