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.

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".

More of a hassle than a proper addon. But yes, it works.

To cycle through tabs:

But how to jump to a specific tab without cycling through them? In FireFox I can just press control+number and it opens the corresponding tab. Having to cycle through them is annoying and slow.

Firefox run slower with more addons/extension to reach the level of Opera.

Tab cycling with mouse or keyboard is similar to Alt+Tab to cycle through windows. It's more useful than this Firefox feature if you open many tabs (and really faster).

Such as I have 30 tabs opened. I want to active the tab named "Tab's position, where's my tab!?". It's position is about 14, 15, 16, I don't know.

I must test with Ctrl + '14' or '15' or '16'.
OR, I must find the number of position of this tab.

In Opera I can 'visually" tab cycling with mouse and/or keyboard to quickly find the tab I want.
