The new Opera 10.60 comes with more speed, a few bug fixes, support for HTML 5 elements and most impressively, it now includes AVG’s Web Threat Data Feed to shield you from malicious websites and malwares. Is the Opera 10.60 the competition’s answer to Google Chrome 5.0.376.86? Maybe. However, the new Opera v10.60 is the first browser ever to include an embedded anti-malware add-on and people accustomed to Internet Explorer and Firefox should now seriously consider shifting to Opera 10.6. You can download this free browser from www.opera.com/browser/. If you want a fast browser with added protection when you surf the internet and download files, this one is the best browser recommended.
Opera has previously featured fraud protection with data feed from Netcraft and PhishTank but version 10.60 is a lot more secure now with AVG data providing real-time feed of malicious URLs. Opera can protect you from websites that host browser-based malware attacks, rootkit installers, Trojan downloaders and other malicious computer activities. Aside from this robust security, Opera 10.6 also comes with full support for Google’s new HTML 5 video codec, WebM. Aside from Google’s Chromium, Opera is now the only current web browser that can play WebM video files. Other HTML 5 features now supported by this version are Web Workers, Geolocation API , and better support for offline web apps and Cross-Document Messaging.
This latest version beats all the competition in terms of speed and security but sadly, Opera still lacks the power-user plugins of Firefox. Although if you are not a heavily dependent on third-party adds-on, Opera is the best tool for browsing the wild, wild web!
