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.

Actually, I don’t own any car and use a bicycle for everything.

My browser has a Gecko engine (1.9.1). It matches the best balance between standards support and compatibility with the web.

The JavaScript dialogues I see all the time, and they’re badly designed too (should be a sheet on OS X, icon is badly positioned, the tick box looks shoehorned in there and confuses the matter because it has nothing to do with what the website is asking.

I suppose it was an equally stupid thing of me expecting OSNews readers to think design is any more than what skin your browser has.

Is there nobody here who is an actual designer, please speak up! Design is not just an interchangeable skin.

I believe nobody think the design is about pretty pixels. The problem is that in your article you only critize pixels for being too colorful or too trendy and their over use of Photoshop or something along those line and then you say that this is not the only thing there is to design but their design suck. And yet, you didn't tell us what make their design suck, you just told us you don't like their use of Photoshop but that is not design. The actual design is fine and logical as far as I'm concerned. The menus are where I expect them to be, I have no trouble managing tabs and the options and I understand how the features work pretty well, so that is good design for me. Nobody cares about the skin.
