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.

review is complete fail

all review is about how it looks bad on Mac OS X =]. not all users care about look, you can always change the skin.

'The browser is eclectic, with too many preferences, too complicated preferences, too many customisation options. Features not everybody needs, or wants.'

that point is stupid. browsers are all about functionality, features and customization which are implemented because of user requests.

it is a matter of time when `problems' mentioned in the review will be fixed. I personally would like to have visual tabs on the right.

opera team is far more innovative. lets wait till other browser makers `invent' opera`s features.

it is sad that close-minded people like kroc can ruin reputation of OS news so easily.

Give him another chance. I don't "know" Kroc, but he has been around for a long time and generally doesn't sound so angry. ;) He obviously "loves" Opera and doesn't want it to go the way of BeOS, if you know what I mean.
