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.

if all you want is a basic browser try dillo or k-meleon they are JUST A BROWSER.

the fact that operas installer is SMALLER then that of FIREFOX or SAFARI or CHROME or IE8 despite all the extra features should tell you something

example

Opera10beta:6.58MB
FireFox 3.5b4:7.62MB
Google Chrome 3.0.182.3 Beta: 9.87MB
Safari 4: 25.5mb(no quicktime)

smallest installer, most features, easiest to tweak and customize, to me thats ALL WIN!!!

this review was/is a JOKE, clearly done by a die hard and lifelong mac user, they are the only ones I hear complaining about everything being overly complicated and customizable Krok needs a fisher price browser thats got like 3 buttons all the size of a quarter :/
