Opera 10.60 ships

by Antony

OperaOpera Software has introduced Opera 10.60, claiming its new browser is the fastest around and up to 50 percent faster than the previous version.

The browser employs up-to-date open standards, adds new features, improved security and is more stable than before.

Speed is the key claim: The company suggests its speed enhancements translate into a faster browsing experience for users on modern JavaScript-heavy sites such as Gmail and Facebook.

Geolocation is one of the built-in features, so your current position can be set on the map when using maps, though you can switch this feature off.

Opera is also first to market in fielding the open WebM format that gives you optimized video right in the browser on all platforms. Support for offline applications also appears in this release.

The Opera Turbo compresses the data going over your connection up to a factor of two or more, for those congested connections at cafés or a mobile connection at the summerhouse.

Opera 10.60 is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux, and it is available free of charge. Opera 10.60 browser can be downloaded from Opera website. The Portable Opera 10.01 is also available for running Opera directly on USB/flash drive without installing onto the computer (Opera 10.01USB with Turbo).
