Address, Search, Extensions, and Installer

December 8th, 2010

It’s not Christmas yet, but we’re back with another excellent set of improvements to the address and search fields to correct faulty animations, more accurately display security information, and generally make things a lot more pretty.

We have also fixed a bug that has appeared in the last half a dozen snapshots where secure negotiation (HTTPS) would end prematurely, leaving the page blank until you restarted Opera and tried a second time, along with a very common crash on exit.

Extensions get a few updates, particularly on the UI side.

Finally, on Windows there are numerous improvements to our installer.
