Final Version Of Opera10.6 Lands With More Security and Arabic Web Support on MAC

1 Jul, 2010

The oldest independent browser company in the world Opera has released the final version of Opera 10.6 . We wrote about the beta version of 10.6 here but it had problems rendering some Arabic websites on Mac OS X such as ArabCrunch Arabic and Aljazeera Arabic, as it used to display Arabic letters without combining them . We informed  Opera directly about that and the team responded by fixing the problem, so many thanks to Opera and its desktop team.

The new browser comes the first built-in video playback with the open WebM format that gives you optimized video right in the browser on all platforms. Other Opera features such as offline applications let you work using web-based applications, without Internet connectivity.

Opera said via a press released that version 10.6 has anti-fraud systems and phishing protection and live feeds that supply fresh information on the latest web threats to the users and keep them in the know about potential malware, harm or scams. In certain regions, Yandex supplies user malware protection.

Other improvements and new things:

•       Appcache: Use in-browser applications such as word processors and spreadsheets even without an Internet connection by storing the necessary files locally.
•       More search: Opera 10.60 includes several search engines for the user to choose for themselves. Opera has added the Bing search engine as one of the choices, in addition to the default Google search.
•       Search suggestions: With websites such as Wikipedia, get instant search suggestions to complement your search experience.
•       Improved design: New design features such as an improved Menu button and icon tabs make day-to-day use of Opera even faster and easier.

•    Bug fixing of many issues of the beta version.

As Opera 10.6 comes with geolocation which can be turned on and off, Opera has created an interactive map to show real-time downloads of the Opera browser here:
