Less than 3 days after the release of Opera 10.52 for Windows and Mac, Opera has released Opera 10.53.

The update also fixes a potential freeze bug when using Google Maps for both Windows and Mac versions.

Opera 10.53 will be pushed out to Windows and Mac users over the next day, while new users can downloaded the browser from the Opera website.

OperaWith the release of Opera 10.10 on November 23rd, it took only 7 days for Opera to record over 12 million downloads.

This is a 25% improvement over Opera 10 download figures from September.

Opera 10.10 is visually more compelling, and technologically speaking, it goes where no browser has gone before,” said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software in a press release. “We believe that, over time, Opera Unite has the power to erase preconceptions of how we access and share information on the Web.”

Opera 10.10 can be download for free for Windows, Mac and Linux and includes Opera Unite.
