Refresh the page and timer restarts.

With the launch of Opera 11.50, curious users can now track Opera downloads “live”.

However, don’t get too excited as this is not an actual live tracker. Instead, it’s just a script to trick you into believing that this counter is tracking something. Like: var spot = 350736,rate = 8. Obviously, Opera Software did not say anything other than:

This record was beaten as part of our counter to measure the amount of Opera 11.50 downloads.

So here you have it folks, no live tracking, welcome to the age of false marketing.

Google Chrome Blocks Insecure Scripts

Thanks to the continuous security improvements, the latest dev version of Google Chrome now blocks insecure scripts.

If the web site is secured via HTTPS protocol, Google’s web browser will also check whether or not the specific parts of the code (such as scripts, external CSS, etc.) also use HTTPS to deliver data.

In case they do not, Google Chrome will notify the user and offer to either block the insecure script or load it anyway.

Opera 11.50 Release Candidate Now Available

By | June 24, 2011 | 8 Comments

Opera 11.50 Release Candidate Now AvailableOpera 11.50 is just about ready to replace Opera 11.11 as the former is now in the release candidate stage. Available for download for Windows, Mac, or Linux from the Opera Next page, one can download it now without overwriting their current, stable Opera installation as Opera Next installs itself in a separate directory.

As previously reported, Opera 11.50 will be launching with a sleeker look, ditching brightly colored menu and status bar icons for a more refined look boasting more subtle tones. New aesthetics are not the only change that Opera 11.50 will bring along, though, as the Speed Dial page has been improved along with increased support for modern web technologies such as CSS3 and HTML5 and easy plug in installation.
