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 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.

To block content in Opera:
1. Right-click on a part of the webpage that isn't Flash (because then you'd get the Flash right-click menu).
2. Click "Block Content". Your screen should feel "faded" with pictures/flash standing out.
3. Click on the item you want to block.
4. Click "Done", at the top. If you're curious about what it's blocking, click "Details" and it will show you.

To cycle through tabs:
0. This only works with Mouse Gestures turned on (Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced tab -> Shortcuts -> "Enable Mouse Gestures"). Also, this is from Windows, so I don't know if it'll work on a Mac, but I like to think so.
1. Hold down your right-mouse button (command-click?)
2. Rotate the scroll wheel
3. Find and highlight the title of the tab you want.
4. Release the right-click

In Opera 6, you used to be able to scroll through all open instances of Opera, but in 7 and onward, the tabs you get are only from a single active instance. So, for me, who turns off the Tab bar, it's not useful anymore and I miss it... but that's why I have a taskbar, anyway. ;)

Edit:// Also, one thing I've noticed is that you can help the "speed" feeling in rendering a page by changing the page redraw: Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced Tab -> Browsing -> Loading: "Redraw instantly" rather than the default "redraw after one second".
