"Opera 10.50 is the fastest browser in almost all speed tests," said Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera, in a statement released by the company. "But more important than any speed test is the real-world speed during use. We designed Opera 10.50 to be easy to use while making our unique features stand out so you can get more out of the Web."
Also featured is improved support for HTML5 and Cascading Style Sheets 3, offering Web designers capabilities to build "eye-catching" applications based on open technologies, the company said.
Version 10.50 also supports the Aero Glass feature in Windows 7 and Vista. Previous capabilities remain, such as Opera Turbo, to compress Web pages and furnish content faster
Versions of Opera 10.50 for Mac and Linux are due soon, Opera said.
