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.

(snip verbage)
again, criticizing a cross platform app because it isnt build to your os of choice default behavior

you are asking for sane defaults that will make it look like a native app on a mac. In your comment, you seem to advocating opera having different GUI in different systems so that it can have a default sane look on your system of choice.

Some people may see this as a good idea, some wont because of the spacial memory thing. I mean would you like the same app to look and behave different across different systems?

There is always a penalty in building cross platform apps. Look at google, they decided to go with native code for their web browser and linux and mac versions are at an alpha stage at best


1) I never made those statements - am I Kroc Camen? no I am not, so shove it up your ass. Unless you know what the f--k you're talking about let alone who the f--k you're speaking to - it is best you never f--king registered for this site in the first place.

2) Nothing has EVER stopped Opera from setting their application to detect the system default colours and adjust the relevant components accordingly. Again, another leap into the unknown based on nothing.

3) Who raised Chrome? I didn't! again, another pulling at issues and matters which have NOTHING to do with the topic at hand. If we're going to talk about Chrome, then sure, there is a price to pay for not having a lowest common denominator - attempt to be everything to everyone GUI; but I would sooner wait 6 months to a year for a native and properly integrated browser than a half assed, half baked attempt to try and cover all bases only to end up with a product that keeps no one happy.
