- Thoughts on 11.01
- January 31st, 2011
Well, I installed 11.01 over 10.63, and it generally seems to have gone smoothly. As far as I can tell, my layout and config weren't affected at all, and the skin I use (Opera 9 Standard Skin for 10.50) still works - at least for my purposes.
I cannot seem to get rid of the address bar "badge" even after unchecking the HideURLParameter box in opera:config , but it's tolerable. I would, however, like to change the way the address in the address bar is styled. I don't need to have the domain subtly highlighted, and I'd rather have the rest of the address be in black rather than gray.
I've also noticed that, when I use Speed Dial, the Speed Dial URL appears in the address dropdown. It's tolerable, given that I can remove it, but I'd like to prevent it if that's possible.
A major peeve is that I can no longer exit a tab if the cookie dialog is open. I liked being able to do that in the 10.6x releases because it let me get out of pages that were effectively unusable because they kept tossing cookies at me. It appears that that ability has been taken away. Boo! Hiss!
