Opera Software Opera have announced the general availability of Opera 10 beta. Opera 10 includes an improved rendering engine Presto v2.2. The beta adds a new default skin and a couple of new features, notably "Turbo", a proxy compressor for dial-up users, and tab previews. The result? Complete fail. Read More for why and a quick screenshot tour. addendum: As an apology to the community for the reckless and inadequate review I will be doing it again, properly, taking into consideration your fine comments.

I too like it. I think it actually looks pretty nice. Just because Kroc doesn't like it he shouldn't instantly call it a "fail", there's people who have totally different tastes than he does.

I think it looks great. It seems to integrate quite well in OS X. So what if it's a little purple and black? Will the mighty Apple gods be pissed because Opera didn't follow their precious HIG by the letter?

Same here! I love it! It looks great on Vista (I don't like OS X). If Opera were to copy Firefox removing options, and changing the interface, I wonder what browser I would use...Seamonkey maybe...Can't think about it!

I have to agree with you. I don't mind it at all. The last thing I'd want is a massively colourful and bright skin.

This however is all about taste and personal opinion and shouldn't fail a browser, particularly when it's merely a skin...
