Opera Software Opera 10 has hit the release candidate status. "The Opera 10 release candidate is feature complete, with a surprising array of new features, a fresh look and feel, a new application icon, and enhanced speed and performance. Opera 10 features Opera Turbo, the new bandwidth-booster for slow Internet connections. It also features a significantly improved Opera Mail, Opera's built-in e-mail client. Tabbed browsing enters the next phase of its evolution with resizeable, thumbnail tabs. The upgrade of Opera's Speed Dial now gives users a chance to personalize their favorite online destinations and the overall look and feel of their start page. Finally, Opera has always been about speed and performance. Opera 10 is now much faster on resource intensive pages such as Gmail and Facebook and is more than 40% faster than Opera 9.6. Web developers can enjoy Web Fonts support, RGBA/HSLA color and new SVG improvements."

The problem I've had with visual tabs is simply that the premise behind them is redundant when hovering over the normal tab already displays a thumbnail. That said though, you can move them to the side of the screen now, which may present some usefulness for those on wider displays.

My major personal gripe with Opera 10 thus far has been the underwhelming new look, and also since a few builds ago, the dropping of the option of a native QT4 look (which admittedly while far from usable, nonetheless led me to think I might get an Opera that looked native in KDE).
