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.

My complaints about the GUI are not just skin-deep.


Actually most of them are, and can be fixed with a different skin, while you don't go into much detail about the ones that aren't.

The most substantial complaint I can see is your criticism of the options dialog, and pointing out it's non-compliance with Apple's HIG is certainly valid. Of course for Windows/Linux users that's not an issue, and you don't detail any actual problems with the design itself, let alone how you'd fix it.

The fact that Opera for Mac is a bit too much like Opera for Windows is an issue for Mac users who want consistency, but it doesn't mean much to the majority of Opera users who don't use Macs. In my opinion it isn't much of a review when that kind of aesthetic issue is the main thing that's focussed on.
