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.

anybody notice certain products from certain companies are reviewed from apologetic eye and other products from other companies are reviewed with a critical eye?

Yes I did, and it's normal as we are human (read "non-objective and very subjective") beings. That's why I (a he, not a she) also posted the previous article about the release of Opera 10.54 ten days ago, following the call for submissions and editors Adam launched weeks ago, and following several comments where I defended Opera, where I praised the browser for being feature rich and a true pioneer (see my other comment minutes ago). And I am the most outspoken supporter of Opera on OSnews so I hope you're not saying I'm an IE fan (yuck, feel sick just writing it) who's disguising his true partisanship in this article. See http://www.osnews.com/thread?429413

No wonder you don't remember anything from me, this is my second article on OSnews. And if you are on Opera community, I'm "topdawg" over there.

Even better, as I have announced in another comment, I'm preparing a critique reviewing my 10 years of using Opera for 100% of my non-Youtube browsing and FF for the more and more sporadic cases when the site doesn't work with Opera.

Feel free to say things about my writing. It's a foreign language to me as I'm in France. And as I said elsewhere, I'm also here to learn.

If I could set trends, the marketshare of Opera desktop would higher than the meager 2% it is now, a mysterious virus would wipe IE6 and IE7 from all computers, Microsoft would bury IE deeper than the core of the planet and they would also spare resources on both WebPositive and ports of Java 1.6 to Haiku and AROS. Dreaming awake...

English isnt my first language too and i hope people recognize the fact that this is an international forum and not everybody use this language on a day to day basis and have proficiency comparable to native speakers.

Its like they say, you can get drunk once in a while and most people wont put second though into it but once you get a reputation as that person that get drunk,then the only thing you can do is to skip town because it doesnt really matter how long you stay sober, everybody will start talking as if you have been drinking the entire time you were sober.

You could be meaning well for writing a critical review of opera, but reviewers of this browser on this forum already have a reputation of being overly critical of this browser and your criticism will only play into that stereotype and it doesnt matter how much you will praise the browser(if you will), a slight criticism will stand out and people will complain about it.

Actually I think the majority of OSnews readers are (me included) not English native speakers.

Therefore, you'll probably be more careful in using English than the native speakers. ;-)

I see far too many instances of native speakers abusing words that are close in sound--not homonyms but just close in sound such as weary and wary. It's amusing because what they say turns out to be nonsense.
