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.

Horrible Review

That was insulting, and I don't even use Opera. I mean its fine to hate the UI and call them out for it, but at least put it into perspective. The UI may not be perfect, but it doesn't look much worse than what they had before to me.

So what is widely considered a pretty good browser with a very extensive feature set gets a new UI that is no worse/marginally better than it was - and that equates to a complete failure? Why?
