Opera 10.6 now official, brings speed and WebM video

Opera 10.6 final adds HTML5 and WebM

Opera today claimed a handful of records by launching Opera 10.6. It now tries to regain the title of the fastest browser as its JavaScript engine should be about 50 percent faster than the already quick 10.5. The app is equally the first polished browser to support the controversial WebM video standard in HTML5 and recognizes other new HTML5 features, such as geolocation and web app caching.

The app has a handful of other changes, such as improved menus and icon tabs. More search options are available, including Bing for the overall search engine and search suggestions that will often push Wikipedia to the front. Much of the earlier design persists and centers on concepts such as the Speed Dial, to jump to recent sites quickly, and visual tabs that show thumbnails of the pages themselves.

Opera's update should be available now for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

    A good job

    Opera's good at doing what it does, and it does pretty much everything. Enough said ;) It's nice to see WebM and Geolocation being realized, and this is definitely faster than the last version.

    I have a question:

    Does Opera Mini for iPad / iPhone support WebM video?
