Opera 11 Alpha released. Screenshots inside

Opera today unveiled the first alpha of Opera 11 - the first Opera browser to feature extensions. As with Firefox and Chrome, Opera extensions will be based on the browser’s API and built using web standards like HTML5 and JavaScript.

Extensions can be managed and new ones added from Opera’s menu which take the user directly to http://addons.labs.opera.com/addons/extensions/, the page where extensions are hosted.

Already 16 extensions are available for immediate use. Some of these include YouTube downloader (at last), Yr.No Forecast (weather add-on) and Translate that “Automagically translate foreign web pages into English”

Documentation for developers on building Opera extensions has also been posted. Opera says that developers who have already authored extensions for other browsers need only tweak their codes a bit to make it compatible to Opera. I’m a bit sceptical about this claim, though.

Opera 11 alpha can be downloaded from http://www.opera.com/browser/next/. While you wait for the 9MB download to complete, take a look at these screenshots.

You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
