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.

I just tried Opera 10 quickly myself and the first thing that struck me was the speed it renders websites at.. It's like a greased lightning compared to FireFox! I noticed some rather odd font-rendering issues and I need to find some AdBlock-like addon on it, and then I'll most likely dump FireFox.

I had noted this in the article, but people were too hung up on me being hung up on graphics to notice this ;)

Well, you did concentrate on the looks a bit excessively. I like the looks of it atleast in Windows and I don't really see why I wouldn't like the looks on OSX or Linux either.

So far Opera 10 seems fine and I love the speed of it, but I can't find anywhere any adblock-like addon, and it doesn't provide any way for me to jump to a specific tab number, instead it forces me to cycle through them all. That sucks for me since I am a heavy user of tabs, I always have 6-7 tabs open, and having to cycle through them all to get the correct one instead of just pressing a two-key combination is slow.
