Smash9ing Apps: Version 10.6 comes with geolocation, a feature which other browsers are also incorporating. This features communicates your location with any web app that needs it (after your permission). Opera also has a map of all its users on the globe, thanks to geolocation. You can view this map and see other Opera users nearby.
This isn't breaking news or anything but after a long-time coming, Google Earth now works on web browsers other than Google Chrome.
Using the Opera feature will make it harder for your ISP or websites to track your physical location or internet usage and doesn't require you to log in.
The Opera browser for Android is making it even easier to block ads by making the feature a simple toggle option.
