Two of the biggest names in the web browser world have released updates for their products. Starting with Opera Software, the organization has updated its browser to version 10.01. Opera 10.01 has been classified by the Opera team as a “stability and security” update that will fix a bunch of annoyances in the software. You can see precisely what Opera 10.01 fixes in the changelog. We will mention the only new feature the update brings to the table: an Opera Link button has been added on the status bar (in the main menu, Opera Link has been moved to Tools).

“We published Opera 10.01, a recommended stability and security update. Thanks to the new automated crashlogging in Opera 10, we collected a lot of the issues that users were seeing, and had a good tool not only to identify some crashers difficult to reproduce in controlled environments, but also to prioritize issues that were affecting a lot of users. A great Thank You to everybody submitting their logs,” announced Claudio Santambrogio, Tester, Opera Desktop Team.

Moving on, the Mozilla has released some security and stability updates of its own, mainly Firefox 3.5.4 and Firefox 3.0.15. Firefox 3.5.4 fixes several stability issues, plugs a total of 11 security vulnerabilities (6 critical, 3 moderate, and 2 low), adds the ability to re-submit crash reports, and fixes a problem where some images and styles would not be loaded on some SSL sites (after using Clear Recent History). Firefox 3.0.15 also fixes several stability issues and plugs 10 security holes (5 critical, 3 moderate, and 2 low).

"As part of Mozilla's ongoing stability and security update process, Firefox 3.5.4 and Firefox 3.0.15 are now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. We strongly recommend that all Firefox users upgrade to this latest release. If you already have Firefox 3.5 or Firefox 3, you will receive an automated update notification within 24 to 48 hours. This update can also be applied manually by selecting "Check for Updates..." from the Help menu,” announced Firefox Launch Coordinator, Samuel Sidler.
