Opera 8 Beta 2 Released
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 2/25/2005 10:28:00 PM.

What a week ... first Firefox and now upgrade to Opera.

What is important to note that Gmail and Google Maps works flawlessly in this version, and Hotmail supposedly works better.

Features : Improved Security
  • Fix for IDN spoofing, by introducing a whitelist for safe top-level domains - currently :no:jp:de:se:kr:tw:cn:at:dk:ch:li:. Sites not in the whitelist will show the encoded domain in the URL field. The list is updated automatically when Opera checks for a new version.
  • The padlock icon is now always visible for HTTPS servers, and the name of the organization owning the certificate is displayed in the URL field.
  • Support for the Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) - real-time requests for certificate status.
  • Other smaller fixes and changes.

The Final version of Opera 8 is expected to be released very soon by the end of this month.
