Review – Opera 10.60 Build 3445

Great news for Opera fans, a new version (10.60) has been released with a completely new JavaScript framework and the promise of the new Opera is eight times higher speed. Opera is admired for its speed, visual and simplicity. Everything began with the revitalization of the interface, much prettier and more intuitive. The source code has been completely revised to eliminate residues from previous versions and fix bugs.

The final version of Opera 10.60 managed to surprise even those who followed each update. Amazingly fast browser now has native support for the WebM and HTML5, Geolocation, suggestions result feature in searches and applies the Anti-fraud system and Anti-phishing.

Super Fast Browsing With Style Opera has always been the browser with the greatest efficiency among all others. When you open the browser, it shows what is called “Speed Dial”. A homepage that meets all of the most visited websites by you or recent favorites. Seems silly, but it is really very useful.

Opera tabs are known for their flexibility. This is because, as soon as you click and drag the bar that separates the navigation tabs, you can get thumbnails of the pages that are open. The visual is great and makes it easier for those who love to open many pages at the same time.

You can access the other main functions of the browser (E-mail, Favorites and Widgets etc) by clicking on the big red “O” in the upper-left corner. And don’t worry about the plug-ins compatibility, because most already installed, as the Flash Player.

Resources Opera complements automatically what you type in the address bar with history and Favorites that you have. Search within pages has also been enhanced, so you filter what you’re looking for. If you use Opera with Windows 7, realizes that the visuals are made to suit the new operating system. I.e. transparency takes care of the browser from the top to the lowest part of it.

Advanced Standards, Improved Support Since the beta versions, Opera announced major innovations in relation to support for advanced technologies such as HTML5 and WebM. If you depend on Opera, these standards will not be a problem.

Following the trends, the new Opera works fine with the new technology of HTML5. If you had any curiosity, how does YouTube or Vimeo in new HTML5, feel free to try it with this version. And, last but not least, the CSS3 has also been implemented which ensures more compatibility.

E-mail If you check your email often and embrace Opera as default browser, Opera mail client can be a good idea. From the sidebar or the main menu (Big red “O”), you can access your e-mail, which can be configured as POP3 or IMAP. So, just open a new tab to send a message and one click to check new messages.

Geolocation Opera is getting better in terms of Geolocation. The technology allows websites know your location and then make your browsing more practical, for example offering more relevant search results. Opera 10.60 lets you share your location in order to make the best possible use of the content of websites that use Geolocation. To ensure your privacy, you have complete control over when the feature should be used.

Opera Unite Have you ever thought about accessing music library, photos, files and folders remotely on your home computer from anywhere you are? Opera unite is the function that makes it possible. It’s as if your browser transforms your PC into a Web server.

Opera and AVG, Union for Your Safety Now, Opera uses anti-phishing and anti-fraud systems of AVG that prevents you from accessing dangerous pages and also offers automatic feeds about the latest threats and keep you safe from malware.

Widgets Rather than add-ons (like Firefox), Opera supports widgets ranging from social networks clients to games and utilities to download videos. The good (or bad) news is that now they are entirely independent. After installing a new Widget, it appears outside of the Opera, as a Windows application. This means that if you close your browser, the widget remains open and functioning.
