Opera Releases New Internet Browser Update
The endless string of security holes found in both Internet Explorer and Firefox may lead some to believe that browsers enjoying a much smaller market share are also less in danger of being under attack. Still, Opera doesn't share such a point of view and recently released a new update.

Another fix on Opera's list is an issue where plug-ins could be used to allow cross domain scripting. The company announced that details would be disclosed at a later date.
Additional fixes and additions include:
- Fixed a problem downloading the CRL (Certificate Revocation List)
- Fixed a problem that could cause SSL to deadlock in one state, hanging the connection
- Prevented security information documents from being written to disk
- Fixed a problem which created separate feed notifications; Opera now groups them together
- Fixed a problem with inline find when no content was entered and the Enter key was pressed
- Implemented opacity on text styled with hexidecimal color codes
- Installing an external source viewer no longer requires an Opera restart
