Opera Software This is old news, but only just crossed my radar! Opera have made available a pre-alpha version of Opera 10.5. There's a massive amount of change under the hood, and I caught wind via taranfx.com.

Well, Vega is their graphics library and it powers both webpages and the UI, but that doesn't mean that it's hardware accelerated. Currently it's software based and they still have about 4 times faster speed. According to some of the developers' blogs it is designed so that it is trvial to add a hardware acceleration backend and they have Direct3D and OpenGL backends, but they don't seem to be needing them

Vega can be hardware accelerated, but as you can see from the complex graphics benchmark in Peacekeeper, we don’t seem to need it yet.
