“Staying secure on the Web is easier than ever with the unsurpassed AVG-supported anti-fraud systems and phishing protection introduced in Opera 10.60. Live feeds supply fresh information on the latest web threats to the users and keep them in the know about potential malware, harm or scams. In certain regions, Yandex supplies user malware protection,” explained Opera in a press release.

  • Looks
From a visual point of view, Opera 10.6 comes with better looks for Speed Dial, tab previews and the Opera menu button. The browser also comes with custom thumbnails for tabs.

  • Web technologies of tomorrow
Geolocation is a new feature in Opera 10.60. What it does is it determines your geographical location and puts you on the map. To be more precise, a website you visit asks the Opera browser for your location; if you agree to give out your location, the website can pinpoint your whereabouts and “do cool stuff” as Opera’s Aleksander Aas said.

Opera Software has created an interactive map to showcase the geolocation feature; the map, which is available here, shows real-time downloads of the Opera browser.

Opera 10.60 comes with support for the WebM format meaning the browser has built-in video playback. Opera 10.50 also comes with some additional HTML goodness – HTML5 Appcache, Offline Web Applications, and Web Workers.
  • Other changes
Search suggestions in the Speed Dial and search box, of course.
Microsoft Bing is featured as one of the search engines.
