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.

1) I want each tab process isolated


It's being worked on.

2) Dictionaries; I've never actually seen their dictionaries work properly;


It works fine in Opera 10. The English dictionary is installed by default and you can install additional ones. Just right-click a text area to change the language.

4) Website incompatibility; the whole Google-verse is incompatible


I yet have to see an incompatibility with Google web sites. It's thoroughly tested.

5) Get rid of all the needless crap from it; I don't want a torrent downloader, an email client


If you call M2 "crap", then you have not bothered trying it. This is my only explanation. If you don't want all that "crap", you're probably better off with browsers like Chrome, Firefox or IE.

I don't want any torrent downloaders or e-mail clients into my browser either. Those are a lot better off as separate apps.

Good, so they've finally fixed it - it doesn't require hoop jumping to get it to recognise the aspell libraries installed. Praise the lord!

How about using more than google.com - try using Blogger's own rich text blog entry tool.

Mate, I don't want it - get rid of it. Yet another paragraph from a mouth frothing fanboy whose implicit message is actually, "it is you with the problem kaiwai".

But it actually is your problem. I use Opera since 1999 and just don't notice this mail client. It's buried somewhere in menu or something, I don't really care. It doesn't interfere with browsing in any way.

And since the browser distribution size is smaller than other competing browser, how can it be an issue?

You are really one f--king biased fanboy, nobody forces you to use the M2 features, you can even disable them. An idiot like you is yet to be seen.

Wow. Ok so you wrote your comment criticising Opera, specifically mentioning something you dislike and then reveal by this that you haven't actually LOOKED AT THIS NEW VERSION so your comment is entirely irrelevant.

Yet another paragraph from a mouth frothing fanboy whose implicit message is actually, "it is you with the problem kaiwai".


Hah, you have quite a cheek to call someone that when you did what you did.

Opera's memory and disk space footprint are minimal. If you don't want some hidden features, just ignore them. You actually have to search to find the email client. So I don't see where the problem lies...
