Opera 10.6 Web Browser has been Released

While we are waiting for Mozilla’s new App “Firefox Home”, Opera has just released their new and much waited version. Opera 10.6 came with most required features for any user and improves HTML 5.

Full Change Log as below:

Geolocation eases the work of putting you on the map by determining your position. To ensure your privacy, you have full control over when this feature is used. To showcase geolocation in action, Opera has created an interactive map to show real-time downloads of the Opera browser. Try it out here.

Built-in video playback with the open WebM format that gives you optimized video right in the browser on all platforms.

Offline applications let you work using web-based applications, without Internet connectivity.

More than 50 percent faster than its predecessor – which was the fastest browser on Earth – in key benchmark tests.

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

Mouse gestures make you a more efficient user when browsing the Web and cuts down time spent on navigating between different webpages.

Built-in search functions give you quick and powerful searches both on the Web and in large webpages.

AVG-supported anti-fraud systems and phishing protection introduced in Opera 10.60.

More improvements

  • Appcache: Use in-browser applications such as word processors and spreadsheets even without an Internet connection by storing the necessary files locally.
  • More search: Opera 10.60 includes several search engines for the user to choose for themselves. Opera has added the Bing search engine as one of the choices, in addition to the default Google search.
  • Search suggestions: With websites such as Wikipedia, get instant search suggestions to complement your search experience.
  • Improved design: New design features such as an improved Menu button and icon tabs make day-to-day use of Opera even faster and easier. With the Speed Dial, another Opera first, get to your favorite websites with just a single click of the mouse.
