Opera Software Opera 10 has been released as an alpha preview. It showcases a new rendering engine, Presto 2.2, which the company states will improve browsing performance over the previous version by 30 percent, and notably passes Acid3 standards compatibility with a 100 out of 100 score. This article runs it through some benchmarks, checks memory usage, and general browsing experience.

Done, but Opera 9.6 still manage to load several KB before displaying anything :/ <9.5 used to be far more responsive ! And the fact they also threaded the image loading, when you click a link, instead to load instantaneously the new page, it continue to load the images in background (threads are not killed) thus delaying the load of the new page, making Opera 9.6 far less responsive than it used to be. Even when you switched on the image loading then disable or put the image on cache, you see that Opera continue to download in background the images queued, while you asked it to stop. Even when you click the 'Stop' button, Opera continue to load the queued images, very frustrating...
