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.

1) I want each tab process isolated


It's being worked on.

2) Dictionaries; I've never actually seen their dictionaries work properly;


It works fine in Opera 10. The English dictionary is installed by default and you can install additional ones. Just right-click a text area to change the language.

4) Website incompatibility; the whole Google-verse is incompatible


I yet have to see an incompatibility with Google web sites. It's thoroughly tested.

5) Get rid of all the needless crap from it; I don't want a torrent downloader, an email client


If you call M2 "crap", then you have not bothered trying it. This is my only explanation. If you don't want all that "crap", you're probably better off with browsers like Chrome, Firefox or IE.
