Opera Labs once again shows it is on the stick with the repair of any problem that might upset the user experience for anyone. The fixes supplied are both security based and cosmetic, which once again puts Opera ahead of the browser herd.
While Internet Exploder 9 remains vaporware that will not address the concerns of Windows XP users, and is not close to the performance of the leaders like Opera and Chrome in its beta for Vista and Seven, Opera continues to improve and move further from the Microsoft offerings, while working across all 32 and 64 bit Windows versions.
and adding that last 0.01 adds so much more!
From TechConnect, the changes are given -
Opera Software has started this week with a bang by delivering the first update for the latest version of the Opera browser for Windows. Opera 10.51 is available for download here and it brings the following changes:
- Drag and Drop not working in some instances
- Deleting a bookmark closing/collapsing all folders
- Focus being lost when deleting bookmarks
- Integrated search performing searches in Google and not in the page
- The Opera O menu button reappearing when the Menu bar is enabled
- The Opera icon remaining in the system tray after closing Opera
- Minimized tabs not displaying after a restart
- Favicon not being added to Bookmarks due to a question mark in the filename
- Individual characters in Chinese text being rotated anti-clockwise
Mail, News, Chat
- A problem occurring when right-clicking entries under "All messages" and selecting Compose
- Chat notification appearing if a chat tab is active
- Ghost e-mails appearing in the Trash folder after emptying it and restarting Opera
- Message not loading when it is deselected and selected again
- Mail being blank when using fit to width
- Attached files not being sent if mail is sent immediately after attaching them
- Opera Mail welcome e-mail message not being localized
- The text part of HTML e-mails missing the reply character " > " for block quotes
Display and scripting
- Icons missing from menus in 16-bit color mode
- Slow scrolling performance
- Incorrect font used for a UTF-8 encoded page without the language (CJK) being specified
- Fixed an issue where the HTTP Content-Length header could be used to execute arbitrary code; see our advisory (http://www.opera.com/support/search/view/948/).
- Fixed an issue where XSLT could be used to retrieve random contents of unrelated documents, as discovered by crazypops; see our advisory (http://www.opera.com/support/search/view/949/).
- Cookies received over NPAPI being incorrectly parsed
- Reinstated blocking of third party cookies by default
- Opera sometimes storing a cookie for the domain it came from, rather than the set domain
It is something that you may not notice in terms of speed, but you’ll see changes for the better on the screen, and if you have Secunia Personal Software Inspector installed (you do have it installed, don’t you?) it will stop telling you that your software has unpatched flaws.
Once again, recommended with no reservations!
