Here comes an early Christmas present for all the Opera users, as Norwegian browser maker has just released the final version of Opera 11.60 for you to download.
What’s new, you may ask? While it adds additional web standards support and fixes few bugs here and there, the most noticeable change in Opera 11.60 is a new mail reader, which is significantly improved when compared to previous versions of Opera.
With just one month left before the end of 2011, it’s time to check the latest stats for the browsers market share.
Good news, we have just released a new version of FavBackup for you to play with. No major changes, just additional web browser versions support.
- Added Google Chrome 16 Support
- Added Firefox 7 and Firefox 8 Support
- Added Opera 11.60 Support
Less than a week after releasing the first Opera 11.60 Build, Norwegian browser maker has finished things up and already released the very first Beta.
As we mentioned earlier, Opera 11.60 includes all the Opera 12 Alpha features minus the hardware acceleration.
Months and months after the continuous Internet Explorer’s market share decline, Microsoft’s web browser has finally breached the 50% mark and now sits at the 49.58%, down from 50.97% (1.39 point decrease).
Will use its own creation instead.
Nokia, the largest handset manufacturer in the world, is known to use the Opera Mini web browser in some of its products. However, things are about to change as with the launch of four new Series 40 devices, Nokia has decided to use its own web browser instead.
In order to end the continuous user confusion and strengthen its position in the Android market, Opera Software will ditch both Opera Mini and Opera Mobile web browsers in favor of a hybrid option, according to the company officials.
Up until now, users had to decide, go with the Opera Mini and let its servers handle web pages rendering or chose a traditional approach and install Opera Mobile, which transfers such tasks to the consumer device.
Today, Opera Software has released its second security and stability update for the Opera 11.5 web browser.
The key driver for today’s release comes from the former security vulnerability, which allowed the arbitrary code execution when hackers manipulated fonts in SVG.
Furthermore, Opera 11.52 includes few other fixes, one being a crash when downloading via BitTorrent while another one caused web browser to freeze when adjusting volume on a YouTube HTML5 Video.
