HTML5 and standards are quite the news one of these days. While Microsoft is desperately trying to catch up, others are determined to maintain their lead. Opera Software has released yet another snapshot build of Opera 10.60, which boosts the already excellent standard support offered by Opera
Features Added to this release.
- WebM support for HTML5 video (demo)
- HTML5 Offline Web Applications (demo)
- Geolocation (demo – only partially implemented on FreeBSD/Linux)
- Web Workers (demo – might be a slight delay before it starts working)
- Major update for Cross-Document Messaging (demo)
Opera Dev team has also added sets of specific fonts to be used for CJK(Chinese-Japanese-Korean) web sites, which should improve readability. In addition to these new/improved features there are quite a few bug fixes for Linux/FreeBSD. Mac users will notice that plug-ins will generally perform better too.
