Opera 10.54 Browser Now Available for Download

Paul Lilly

There's a new version of the Opera browser available -- Opera 10.54 -- though it's an incremental update rather than anything even resembling a major overhaul. By Opera Software's own admission, there isn't a whole lot for Windows users to get excited about, though there are some security enhancements, including:

  • Fixed an issue where Data URIs could be used to allow cross-site scripting
  • Prevented Opera from being used as a vector for a font issue in the underlying operating system, as reported by Microsoft's security team

Opera software put a bigger emphasis on security fixes for the Mac platform, though the Windows side wasn't without a bit of intrigue. Listed in the Windows changelog are three additional issues to the ones outlined above, including an "extremely severe" issue, another listed as "moderately severe," and one listed as "less severe," details for all three of which "will be disclosed at a later date."
