    Opera 10.53 has been released to address a security issue that has been reported 3 days ago. The builds are the same as Opera 10.53 RC1.:cool:

    Download it here ---> http://www.opera.com/download/

    Now back to the fun stuff: new snapshots will follow. :D

    @Cix,

    The .jc extension files usually refer to partial or incomplete downloaded files with some download manager programs or Mozilla Firefox.o_O

    With this latest Opera 10.53 final release, I will no longer update on future Opera snapshots build updates which mainly cater to a smaller and more adventurous group who can always get their updates from the Opera Desktop Team blog.:p :ninja:

    Have fun with this fastest browser on Earth, Opera !:D

    I somehow felt the same but Opera 10.52 may have a security vulnerability, so I update to Opera 10.53, slightly slower but safer.:cool:

    Of course, if you were more adventurous, the latest snapshot today makes it fast again.:p

    I don't see the problem, because Disk caching is default option in all browsers. All browsers make temporary files. You can't see the web page until it's downloaded on your computer. Anyway you can use memory caching instead, go to Preferences - Advanced - History and set Disk cache to Off. Now all files will be stored in memory.

    Are you saying that they don't have temporary files? Yes they have but they probably just don't use the tmp extension.
    In Ferifox's temporary folder you will see something like picture1.jpg, picture2.jpg, picture3.jpg, hello.gif, etc.

    But in Opera's temporary folder you will see something like opr03TMA.tmp, opr03TMB.tmp, opr03TMC.tmp, opr03TMD.tmp, etc.

    picture1.jpg = opr03TMA.tmp = 324KB
    picture2.jpg = opr03TMB.tmp = 581KB
    picture3.jpg = opr03TMC.tmp = 113KB
    hello.gif = opr03TMD.tmp = 75KB

    Hope this helps. Like I said you can enable memory caching instead.

    Google did not dare put this statement for their Chrome browser on their website.:p

    It is at best, "Browse the web, Chrome Fast";)

    A little freeware tool I wrote to take some of the pain out of managing/migrating/backing up/restoring Opera profiles. It allows backup and restore of your bookmarks, mail, contacts, sessions, preferences, etc and enables easy transfer of them between Opera installations in different folders or OSes. Also good for finding and restoring lost settings if they disappeared after an Opera upgrade...

    The program should work fine, but making a manual backup of your settings before using it is never a bad idea. And if you have any suggestions or find any bugs, drop me a line!

    Features:
    Easy to use
    Lets you preview your settings before importing or exporting
    Allows cleanly transferring individual settings without the cruft that can build up in an Opera profile folder
    Available for both Windows and Linux, and your settings can be transferred between OSes
    Intelligently locates all the Opera profiles on a typical Windows system, so good for finding "lost" profiles
    Stores settings files in their original state in an open archive (tar.gz) format, so your exported settings can always be easily restored by hand should the need arise
    Corrects .ini paths on import so settings imported from a different folder/OS work correctly

    Excellent backup tool for Opera :)

    How are you guys judging the "speed" of the browser? I just tried the sunspider test and got the following scores:

    Opera 10.53: 248.4ms +/- 4.6%
    Chrome 5.0.375.29: 258.6ms +/- 2.3%

    Practically a dead heat.

    On the Celtickane benchmark Chrome (Avg ~ 675) cleans the floor with Opera (avg ~300)

    Do a peacekeeper benchmark, you will also see Opera being listed there with the fastest scores. Ipera cleans the clocks off Chrome there.

    Chrome, Safari, FF and Opera compared on same machine, Opera clearly the winner, the fact that Opera claims it on their site and remains unchallenged also speaks for itself. Average benchmarks on Peacekeeper site concurs the fact as well but bear in mind, its a see saw battle and one never knows where the scale will tilt in future.

    On my dual XEON Opera wins over Chrome but on some laptops, Chrome manages to edge out Opera but overall, Opera remains fastest.

    You mean the same claim Apple makes for Safari?...

    Come on, you aren't really taking the marketing hyperboles seriously, are you?
