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 been using Opera since v3.62 - yup, with the old banner ads and all. I've been enjoying tabs for a long time.
Out of all the popular browsers available, Opera is my favorite - it is the first application I download and install on any new system I own. From mouse gestures to the best page-zoom around, from the M2 e-mail client to the Fit to Width feature, I use most of the built-in functions of the Opera browser. I like learning about the bits I don't use, and then I end up using them. The Opera folks do very good work. I do change the default skin, but the new one in this beta looks nice enough to keep, this time around.
I've enjoyed every new version of this browser (I am happy that they allow for the use of the old shortcuts) and am looking forward to the final release of Opera 10.
