New Opera 10.60 Snapshot Introduces Better HTML 5 Standards Support

Opera 10 HTML5 and standards are quite the buzzwords these days. While Microsoft is desperately trying to catch up, others are determined to maintain their lead. Opera Software has released yet another snapshot build of Opera 10.60, which boosts the already excellent standard support offered by Opera.

The new snapshot includes:

  • WebM support for HTML5 video (demo)
  • HTML5 Offline Web Applications (demo)
  • Geolocation (demo – only partially implemented on FreeBSD/Linux)
  • Web Workers (demo – might be a slight delay before it starts working)
  • Major update for Cross-Document Messaging (demo)

Of course, other than this, there are the customary bug fixes and stability improvements. Opera 10.60 snapshot for Windows, Mac and UNIX can be downloaded from here. However, keep in mind that this build is not yet ready for primetime and probably contains several bugs.
