Opera Software Opera have announced the release of Opera 10 beta. New engine, new features, but I'm more concerned about where Opera 10 fits into Opera's history, and certainly their future. Opera have never made any massive strides in marketshare and is Opera 10 really going to change any of that? Read More to find out.

What I am hinting at is that there seems to be no UI evangelism going on at Opera. 'good-enough' has been their course for too long. Why, when I have a choice of many browsers, should I force myself to stick with Opera when I can get better UI elsewhere—and I’m not just talking whatever ‘skin’ is applied because I know you can download thousands. The options dialogue in Opera is a mess. The whole way the program operates (the parts you can’t customise) is just annoying and poorly designed. The _feel_ of the app is all wrong to me.
