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.

Opera's marketshare

I've used Opera since around version 7 which I think was before FireFox even existed. I would like to point out that the marketshare figures for Opera are inconsistent among various marketshare watcher sources. It seems that many of these sources have a US bias. Opera's global marketshare is considerably higher than Opera's US marketshare. I think there is a country in Europe (Belarus perhaps) in which Opera has over 50% marketshare, but that is not the norm.

See http://my.opera.com/haavard/blog/index.dml/tag/net%20applicatio... for where I heard about this issue.
