Opera Software Opera 10.60 has been released July 1 for Mac OS X and is available for download. The features highlighted on the changelogs page are: layout engine (codename 'Presto'), HTML5 with support for offline web applications, WebM, which has been available in Opera (in a special build) on the very day of the announcement at the Google I/O conference, web workers for running scripts in the background without impeding the browsing experience, and geolocation. Version 10.60 is also available for Windows and Linux/BSD.

10.6 Gripes

drag and drop-related issues in the bookmarks panel


I can't confirm this one here. Drag and drop from the address bar to bookmark folders, either expanded or collapsed, works fine.

Absolutely NO reloading of any kind when using the back and forward buttons.


This seems dependent on the website. Some will flip backwards and forwards as fast as I can perform the mouse gesture, on others (including OS news) it insists on reloading content.

Personally I'm sticking with Opera 10.10 for now. 10.6 still has too many really annoying bugs for me to happily browse with it.

Some my favourite Opera features have remained broken and semi-functional since the 10.5 betas, and as I often open tabs in the background, their inconsistent ordering is very annoying. I've hit a lot of extremely rough edges when trying to customise 10.6 to meet my preferences. To me 10.10 still offers a much more polished and enjoyable browsing experience thanks to its near flawless (IMO) UI.

I'm hoping that now that they've unified the browser for different platforms, and fixed the show stopping bugs, they'll get around to solving the many little annoyances that build up into a real headache. I know some of the worst remaining bugs were reported 4 or 5 months ago, so it's about time for them to get some attention.
