Opera Software After a long gestation period, Opera has released version 10 of their browser, which comes packed with a whole lot of improvements and new features. It's got a completely new interface, a turbo mode for those days of bandwith drought, automatic updates (finally!), and lots more.

Opera, the web browser that lacks the stability and features of Firefox, the speed of Safari, and the compatibility of Internet Explorer.


I'm really not sure what you're talking about, and don't think you know, either. You do realize that most features in modern web browsers were pioneered by Opera, right? And that Opera was (arguably) the first browser with full Acid 3 compliance?

I think he may be refering to the fact that a few websites still do some black magic to determine what mark up to present and fail to understand Opera.

Check out Kentucky fried chickens website www.kfc.com in opera 10. You get redirected to the mobile version of their site. (which oddly enough has nutrition info different than their regular site.)

By likening it to Internet Explorer? No, I'm pretty sure that's not what he meant. Nor does it address any of his other trollish remarks.

Let's not forget that Opera was the first major browser with tabs and mouse gestures. Or that benchmarks have shown that Opera "...generally outperforms all other browsers..." http://nontroppo.org/timer/kestrel_tests/

The troll's comments are not just baseless, they are actually contrary to the facts.

Off topic - "subservient chicken" seems to be still online:

That being said - anyone prefer Opera 10 on a low-powered (Linux) netbook?
