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 never used the Opera default skin, I always switch to "Windows Native" and guess what, suddenly it looked like an ordinary application.

I haven't used the previous versions, but the Windows Native theme on Opera 10 beta looks positively horrid. The default theme is several order of magnitudes better.

I have actually been quite impressed by the Beta and will continue to use it, as my main browser, at least for now.
