Opera 10.60  Change Log

New features
Opera Presto 2.6 rendering engine

  • Opera 10.60 final contains the Opera Presto 2.6 rendering engine, which improves stability and adds support for the following new Opera features.

Geolocation services

  • User-enabled geolocation services are provided through Google Location Services (GLS).
  • IP address and WiFi recognition are implemented.
  • IP address recognition works with GLS by recognizing your IP address and telling you the cordinates based on it.
  • WiFi recognition works with GLS by gathering and then sending a list of all nearby wireless networks including MAC (Media Access Control) address, SSID (Service set identifier) name, and signal strength, which returns your coordinates.
  • An address bar map pin icon indicates a Web page is accessing the Geolocation API.
  • Opera geolocation services support the W3C Geolocation API Specification (
  • A user decides to share or not share their device location with a Web site based on trust; see section 4.2 ( of the W3C Geolocation specification.
  • Further information is available at the Opera Desktop Team blog: "The return of Geolocation" (
  • See this Opera demo (

Offline Web Applications

  • Support is added for Offline Web Applications ( implementing the user interface for caching.
  • This allows documents to communicate with each other regardless of their source domain, and is designed in a way which does not enable cross-site scripting attacks.
  • See this Opera demo (

Web Workers

  • Web Workers ( is an API for running scripts in the background independently of any user interface scripts. This allows for long-running scripts that are not interrupted by scripts that respond to clicks or other user interactions, and allows long tasks to be executed without yielding to keep the page responsive.
  • See this Opera demo (


  • The WebM format consists of the VP8 video and Vorbis audio codecs wrapped inside a .webm container. It is based on the Matroska media container format, and offers high-quality video with fast seeking.
  • WebM works together with the HTML5 <video> element supported in the Opera Presto rendering engine.
  • See these Opera articles:
    • Welcome, WebM <video>! (
    • Opera supports the WebM video format (
