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.

There is too much focus on the negativity in reviews of this browser here for some reason.


Because it doesn't step up and provide a viable alternative; again, users want OOP, Tab process isolation, 64bitness with interoperability between 32bit and 64bit plugins, better security, lower memory usage, and hogs the CPU less. It has nothing to do with negativity by reviews on here, it has to do with Opera developers not stepping up to the crease and providing an alternative that meets those minimum expectations users have of their browser.

Again, I provided a laundry list of grievances and you seem to be ignoring in them by claiming that that I'm spewing negativity from an unnamed source. I'm not spewing unsubstantiated grievances - they do actually exist and they do need addressing. Until those issues are addressed people like me will continue to moan, groan and write 'negative' reviews because Opera fails to step up and provide what I want from a web browser. It has nothing to do with preferences it has to do with Opera failing to meet the minimum standard that end users expect these days in a web browser.
