Opera Software Opera have announced the release of Opera 10 beta. New engine, new features, but I'm more concerned about where Opera 10 fits into Opera's history, and certainly their future. Opera have never made any massive strides in marketshare and is Opera 10 really going to change any of that? Read More to find out.

First you say that you need simply a "window to web site", next you complain that dialogs are heavy. If you use your browser as a window, then you should never see any dialogs. Then you don't want any functionality and complain that Opera is just like FF with tons of extensions and then you number tons of extensions you use. I just don't understand you.

Opera for me is a powerful solution to view the web MY WAY. Not the way mozilla guys want, not the way extension developers want, not the way apple wants. MY WAY! And Opera is THE ONLY solution for that. And built-in power is a key to flexibility. I don't need Google to search for extensions to enable proper tab browsing or ad blocking.

And hey! My Opera setup is VERY minimalistic (: Because I don't need toolbar icons for moving forward/backward/stop/reload and so on.

I don't like new skin either, but it looks like author never used Opera more then one hour. When you get to know interface features, configure them to your liking, then other browsers will have epic fail for life in your eyes.
