Opera Integrates Web AVG Threat Data Feed

The final version of Opera 10.60, in addition to running 50% faster than the earlier version, will have AVG security features built in, according to the company’s PR chief, Thomas Ford.

Integrated AVG Web Threat Data Feed offers 10.60 following security functions.

* Exploit signatures detect Web pages serving drive‐by downloads
* AVG Online shield detects viruses delivered via social engineering scams
* Reputation lists identify consistently malicious domains and URLs
* Contextual analysis exposes attempts to trick users into installing malware via social engineering scams

As we wrote elsewhere, Opera claims a speed increase and a host of other new features.

“The browser scores more than 50% faster than its predecessor – which was the fastest browser on Earth – in key benchmark tests.”
