Opera 10.60 Beta is Here, Faster and with Geolocation, WebM and HTML5 Support
Here is quick view of what is new:
Performance: boasts a 50% faster online experience as compared to the previous version. (anyone wants to tests and tell us his/her feedback?)
Geolocation: Let your browser find it for you. Geolocation detects your location and maps while browsing. ( does it enable Twitter to detect your location? I will test and get back into this.)
Video: Opera now comes with high-quality, open video royalty free format WebM.
HTML5 Appcache and Web Workers: Appcache lets you use different applications, such as word processor, image editor, spreadsheets and much more, in your web browser even when offline. Web developers can now also use HTML5 Web Workers for doing heavy calculations without making the browsing slower for the user.
Search suggestions: Opera 10.60 beta makes search more efficient, introducing search suggestions for selected Opera partners in the Speed Dial and search box. You can test this in the beta with Wikipedia search.
Custom thumbnails for tabs: The interface in now more intuitive, as the previous thumbnails have been replaced with icons, making you a faster navigator.
Visual improvements: Speed Dial, tab previews and the Opera menu button have been improved with new graphics.
Opera also comes with more features, such as:
Opera Turbo – Opera Turbo comes to the rescue whenever you are surfing on slow, congested networks, for example, at an airport or at an Internet cafe. Tests show that Opera Turbo provides about 65% faster browsing on Edge and around 50% faster browsing speed on 3G networks.
Opera Unite – Share content immediately, without having to upload your files. Opera Unite combines the flexibility of a Web application with the capability of a Web server, easily accessible from your browser.
