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.

They made it clear if you read the article that they are comparing alpha quality software with production releases. They are showing you how well it is doing in alpha stage compared with what is out there now.

I think most people reading are going to be impressed with the results. I was.

Why is everyone always so up in arms with comparisons. Hardly any are really all that even it's just there to give you an idea of what things are like right now.

Then do a follow-up comparing the status of the Toolkits between Gecko, WebKit and Presto.
