Opera Software Opera 10 has hit the release candidate status. "The Opera 10 release candidate is feature complete, with a surprising array of new features, a fresh look and feel, a new application icon, and enhanced speed and performance. Opera 10 features Opera Turbo, the new bandwidth-booster for slow Internet connections. It also features a significantly improved Opera Mail, Opera's built-in e-mail client. Tabbed browsing enters the next phase of its evolution with resizeable, thumbnail tabs. The upgrade of Opera's Speed Dial now gives users a chance to personalize their favorite online destinations and the overall look and feel of their start page. Finally, Opera has always been about speed and performance. Opera 10 is now much faster on resource intensive pages such as Gmail and Facebook and is more than 40% faster than Opera 9.6. Web developers can enjoy Web Fonts support, RGBA/HSLA color and new SVG improvements."

I have a sorta "on-and-off" relationship with this feature. It's useless on top of the window and tabs are smaller and more efficient there.

On the other hand when I keep them on left-side of the window and reduce the width to minimum, they become extremely useful and efficient especially when there are multiple pages. For instance, for those who engage in tab-launching frenzy, the thumbnail tells you the site while the title tells you the content (in case of OS News).

As for Opera 10; the only noticeable change for me is the logo - and thank god for that, the older logo looked oddball in any operating system.
