This was definitely a rush job, released prematurely to go on the browser ballot.

Yes, it is. That's not a bad thing. No browser is perfect, especially after such a massive upgrade.

Stick with the default configuration and everything seems to work OK, but go into preferences and start changing things, using some of Opera's more unusual features, and there are lots of problems. Some of the bugs were reported during alpha testing and still aren't fixed.

I couldn't install Opera 10.5 over the top of my 10.10 installation even if I wanted to; the custom settings I've used for years would break it.

You offered one example, and fair enough, it is a definite issue. But I've mucked around with plenty of things in my UI, and I've not had any more problems than there's been with any other version. I have no idea why you think installing over 10.10 would break it. Have you tried it? I mean with the final, not the pre-release versions?
