Opera Software Opera 10 has been released as an alpha preview. It showcases a new rendering engine, Presto 2.2, which the company states will improve browsing performance over the previous version by 30 percent, and notably passes Acid3 standards compatibility with a 100 out of 100 score. This article runs it through some benchmarks, checks memory usage, and general browsing experience.

If it wasn't for the fact they dont do a x86_64 Qt4 build, and dont do a shared build either for Qt4 so your stuck with a inconsistant look in KDE4.x.

Well, I don't know about the 64-bit release, but starting from Opera 10 alpha 1, they have shared Qt4 builds ;)

The 32bit has Qt4 for Debian, but not the 64bit which is stuck in Qt3--it all seems a bit ass backwards.

You would be anyway. They only use Qt widgets for the menubar. They haven't used Qt scrollbars, buttons, dropboxes, etc since Opera 6.

The qt4 build seems to be using native widgets (oxygen) for everything when you use a native skin, although they look pretty much broken.
