    They are back at it again :p

    Opera 10.53 RC1 for Windows Build 3374 and Mac Build 8343 (and Unix/Linux Build 6326)

    A crash was reported as a security issue yesterday, and we are still investigating the issue.
    However, we do have a fix ready for testing already.
    This build also fixes a freeze on Google Maps, and an issue with custom distributions of Opera.

    Changelog:
    - Version 10.53
    - Fixed CORE-29447 (Possible vulnerability (SA39590: Writing Uninitialised Memory Vulnerability))
    - Fixed CORE-28262 (Fixed order of dialog.ini loading to make the one in the custom folder work)
    - Fixed CARAKAN-1278 (Freeze on Google Maps)

    Glad the Opera Dev Team responded immediately to the security issue raised by Securnia this time round. They dragged their feet the last time and were heavily criticized for their slow response.;)

    With all these scrutinies, Opera is proving to be a much safer browser as well other than already being the fastest browser on earth.:D

    Lots of bugs? This version is better than a stable 10.52?

    It's pretty much a security flaw fix. I'd expect it to be released pretty fast and 10.54 will be started.

    It was always the safest obscure browser around, now the word obscure will be history as well at this rate.

    ~ Snipped as per TOS ~ why can't I make it as easy as on Firefox to open bookmarks? Opera doesn't open bookmarks in new tabs without closing the whole list after the middle-click!

    When Opera devs make Opera more user friendly, resolving simple issues like that, I may start to use it.

    When Firefox comes even close to making a snappier browser with alphabetical bookmarks, I might consider it but nah.......there is Google Chrome even though it too lacks the bookmarks feature.

    Meh, count me in as another user who's relegated Opera to being a secondary toy browser. After the "new and shiny" factor wears off, it's still only Opera after all: most feature-rich browser OOTB, but Firefox/Chrome quickly outstrip it in terms of useful features once extensions come into play. Iffy support for some websites (flickering Facebook chat) doesn't help either.

    Recalled you tried and gave up on K-Meleon earlier and now the same with Opera, it's better you just stick with your browser of choice which is FF for you.:p

    Do not change when you cannot accept any changes o_O

    Again, this thread is just to inform, not to promote or convert. Please stick with your browser of choice which is FF/Chrome for you and both are great browsers IMHO.:p

    Unix BETA Build 6328 coming soon

    Opera for UNIX is getting very close to a Beta now. Indeed you could consider this a Beta RC. That is not to say that all the issues are fixed. They are not, but we do think that it is stable and usable enough for everyday use, although it needs more testing by you. So if you have been waiting for more stability prior to testing then now might be a really good time to give it a spin!

    Known Issues

    * Java is not working
    * Font issues with truetype fonts that contain bitmaps

    Get it here hxxp://snapshot.opera.com/unix/snapshot-6328/


    WARNING: This is a development snapshot: it contains the latest changes, but may also have severe issues, including crashes and data loss situations. In fact, it may not work at all.

    What do you mean by "alphabetical bookmarks" ? FF has right click-sort by name.

    Well, with posts like "With all these scrutinies, Opera is proving to be a much safer browser as well other than already being the fastest browser on earth.:D", I guess I just went ahead and made the assumption that we were being invited to share our thoughts about Opera in this thread.

    I apologize if I was mistaken.

    I can accept changes when they are good.

    I liked Opera, for the most part. However, it still needs simple improvements that make life easier for everybody, like the one I talked about in my last post. It needs to be easier to use, just like IE, Firefox and Google Chrome are.

    As for K-Meleon, it lacks several important features and is based on somewhat old versions of Gecko.

    Go to Appearance - Panels and check "Show panel toggle at edge of window".
    Now when you click left edge of your screen you can have instant access to your bookmarks plus your problem is solved.

    Correct. Because it's only a snapshot update for testing and bug-fixing.
