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.

About the history thing, when Cache-Control is set to 'no-store' in the HTTP header sent by the server the browser shouldn't cache the page. This seems sensible, until you realize that php sets it this way every for every page that uses 'session_start()' (pretty much every page). Browsers could just ignore Cache-Control, but this would break more sites than it would fix.

I imagine that browsers cache the page and when the back button is pressed they check with the server. If the page has changed, the browser downloads it. Otherwise it displays the cached page. That's why, although you see a loading bar, the page is typically loaded much faster.

Dragging a favicon from the address bar inside a folder on the bookmarks panel works fine in 10.60 on OS X.
