On Thursday, the 10th of November, Norwegian developer Opera Software announced that the Beta version of Opera 11.60 has been released to the public. This version of the Opera web browser carries the codename “Tunny”, which is another name for tuna, a fish known for being a fast swimmer and for tasting delicious on whole wheat.

If you would like to get Opera 11.60 Tunny Beta and put it to the test, you can grab it straight from Opera Software here. The regular Beta warnings apply: it may be buggy, it may cause problems, it may ruin your day. Get it if you understand what Beta testing is all about; wait for it to graduate out of Beta if you do not.

Before you go get Opera 11.60 Beta, perhaps you would like to know what new bits and pieces it has to offer. Here’s a quick list that presents the main changes in Opera 11.60 Beta:
  • Improved compatibility thanks to the new HTML5 parser. Support for HTML5 custom scheme and content handlers
  • Better memory management on complex web apps thanks to the new version of the Carakan JavaScript engine.
  • Full ECMAScript 5.1 support.
  • CSS3 radial gradients.
  • A new address field for the Featherweight skin.
  • Easily and rapidly add or remove pages from your list of bookmarks by clicking a star in the right hand side of the address field.
  • New look for the built-in email client.

If you get Opera 11.60 Beta, make sure to back up your important files before installing it. That’s because the Beta will override your stable Opera installation. It’s best to have a back up, in case something were to go wrong. Remember that you’re dealing with a Beta release, which means that the chances of something going wrong are higher than normal.

The current stable version of Opera is 11.52 which carries the codename Swordfish. The upcoming Opera 12 version which is expected to drop in the near future carries the codename Wahoo. Opera Software is now concomitantly working on Tunny and Wahoo.
