Opera Software "Countless hours of hard work, hectoliters of coffee, tons of improvements, two version numbers skipped, and here it is: the all-new Opera for desktop is now out as an Opera Next version, Opera's channel for what used to be called beta. Made from scratch, this version is available for Windows and Mac and brings a new, elegant design and a bunch of new features that will make your browsing experience sleeker and easier than ever." The first version using something called 'Chromium's engine' - I guess they can't call it WebKit anymore, but they can't call it Blink yet either. It's looking great, but the bookmark functionality seems to not have been implemented yet in this preview

Chrome has gotten worse and worse for me, with weird lags and strange behavior, and dropping support for older Linux distributions at a rather disturbing rate. I trust Opera further than I trust Google to make a browser with an eye for the end-user. Certainly that is closer to their main motivation than it is to Googles.


I clearly prefer Chrome, but me too have seen sudden lags and CPU peaks that wasn't there before. Hope they fix it.
