Opera Software Opera has released version 10.52 for the Mac. "The new Opera is designed with Mac in mind. This version boasts an improved user interface, Cocoa integration, multi-touch trackpad gestures and Growl support. This, combined with the unprecedented speed from the new JavaScript engine, Carakan, and the new graphic library, Vega, provides a faster and smoother browsing experience. The new Opera also features the latest in Web standards, including leading SVG support and HTML 5 video." Only Linux remains, now.

Ugh

Ugh! Is this really their idea of "designed with Mac in mind"? Opera for Mac is horrible. They claim it has "Cocoa integration", but yet it doesn't behave anything like a regular Cocoa app.

Text fields behave oddly and don't have focus rings. Contextual menus pop-up on mouseUp instead of mouseDown, so you can't select items by dragging. Form elements look like something from Windows 95. Scrollbars don't dim in the background. Even Firefox does basic stuff like that.
