Opera 10.53 Released – Fixes Highly Critical Security Vulnerability
By on April 29th, 2010

Opera-10.53-UNIX-Beta-RC Opera software has pushed through another update to its desktop browser. Opera 10.53 is expected to be officially released tomorrow and is a recommended security and stability update.

Opera 10.53 fixes a possibly highly critical vulnerability, which was pointed out by Secunia. This vulnerability affects Opera 10.52 for Windows and may be used by hackers to execute malicious code. This release also fixes a few other issues including freeze-ups on Google Maps. It is not clear as to what has changed in Opera 10.53 for Mac.

In related news, Opera has also released a Beta Release Candidate i.e. a build that is almost as good as Beta, for UNIX. Although this build has some known issues including lack of support for Java and font issues with certain TrueType fonts, it is generally considered good enough for everyday use. Download it if you love to test new products, but don’t use it as your only browser.

    Why the company tells that their product is best as it newly released? I trust one browser before and purchase it but after 2 months my PC got slow and I consulted it to my friend and he said your Anti Virus is okay but your browser may cause the hindrance of your Pc's health, try not to update it but if it still the same try to format it. And the problem still remained that time that I forced to reformat my PC. How poor am I.
