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 have to totally agree.

I don't use Opera, I've tried other versions for the Mac and always gone back to Safari / Firefox. This is the first Opera that I have actually liked. I think the l&f of this is brilliant, could be better, but then, so could just about anything else. I don't think the black background behind the tabs is distracting at all... Sure, it's not perfectly "native", but that could be argued for Safari 4 beta too...

I'm not saying this is enough to get me away from Safari 4's beta, but it certainly didn't make the case for Opera any worse...

I just don't quite comprehend how Kroc could say "Word's cannot describe how ugly this is".
