Opera 10.60 gets official, brings more speed, security

By on July 1, 2010, 2:11 PM
Only two weeks after the beta release, Opera 10.60 is now available in its complete form, bringing more speed and more security, according to the browser's Norwegian developer. Opera Software says the latest revision is 50% quicker than 10.50 on "key" benchmarks, resulting in snappier performance on JavaScript-heavy sites like Gmail and Facebook.

Opera 10.60 also incorporates AVG anti-fraud and phishing protection to block malicious sites and keep users informed about potential malware and scams. Other improvements include search tweaks like the addition of Bing and a feature called search suggestions, support for WebM video as well as other HTML5 features, such as geolocation and Web app caching.

The interface has also received a facelift with an improved Menu button and the addition of large icon tabs. If you'd like to join the 120 million other folks using Opera (not all desktop users, mind you) swing by our download section and grab latest browser version: Windows, Mac OS X, Linux.

When I read the discription I was glad to see mention of Gmail. For PPC Macs Gmail has acted a bit funny, basically locking up so you don't get new messages unless you force a refresh. Buzz also used 100% CPU if you were typing, you could type out a sentence and then watch each letter come up very slowly. I'm happy to report that for the very few people that use PPC Opera that at least the Buzz issue is fixed, will know about the other one in time.

Still feels slower then Chrome and Firefox. Is it only me?
