Opera Software Opera have announced the general availability of Opera 10 beta. Opera 10 includes an improved rendering engine Presto v2.2. The beta adds a new default skin and a couple of new features, notably "Turbo", a proxy compressor for dial-up users, and tab previews. The result? Complete fail. Read More for why and a quick screenshot tour. addendum: As an apology to the community for the reckless and inadequate review I will be doing it again, properly, taking into consideration your fine comments.

I've used opera for a while and have liked it since 8.x days and right up through now. I think if you're not into all the extra functionality then you shouldn't use the browser, but I've made it work for me in the past and it was quite helpful. I personally don't use opera all that much since early 9.x just because many websites say they don't support it, even though they could. But I think that page preview tabs are great, and I've always liked that the mouse over gave you previews, something firefox lags in. The speed has gotten a little better although it's still a slower browser. I've used the e-mail part, and it's fine. I'm happy they finally have html encoding so you can have better looking messages. All in all, I think there is no glaring problems with this browser, just matters of opinion to differ on.
