Opera is a web browser developed by Opera Software with over 270 million users worldwide. The browser handles common Internet-related tasks such as displaying web sites, sending and receiving e-mail messages, managing contacts, chatting on IRC, downloading files via Bit Torrent and reading web feeds. Opera is offered free of charge for personal computers and mobile phones.

Today Opera 12.13 has been released with the release note "First final version of Opera in 2013 is here! We have just released Opera 12.13, this is a recommended stability and security update for all users. It also includes couple of bugfixes, most noticeably fixes for not loading any pages when Opera was started without Internet connection and internal communication error on Facebook. We would like to thank you all for helping us with testing 12.13" said by By Marcin Mitek on Opera Blog.

New in Opera 12.13

  • Fixed an issue where Opera gets internal communication errors on Facebook
  • Fixed an issue where no webpages load on startup, if Opera is disconnected from the Internet
  • Fixed an issue where images will not load after back navigation, when a site uses the HTML5 history API
  • A new stand-alone update-checker, as part of a planned upgrade of the auto-update system for Linux and Windows
  • Improved protection against hijacking of the default search, including a one-time reset for Windows
