Opera 11.60 fixes security bugs
In addition to the security fixes, Opera 11.60 has a new HTML engine that should, according to its developers, improve loading time for a majority of web sites, including pages using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. Other changes include a completely revamped built-in mail client (M2) that's said to be easier to setup and use, and improvements to the address (URL) field to allow users to quickly add their favourite sites to the browser's Speed Dial.
Further information about this release can be found in the Windows, Mac and Unix change logs, as well as in the security advisories. Opera 11.60 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD.
