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.

I just ran Futuremark Peacekeeper to compare the latest browsers on my MacbookPro 4,1 (Snow Leopard 10.6.2) and here are the results:

Safari 4.0.4 (Build r52531) - 4331
Chrome 4.0.282.0 (Build 35277) - 3390
Opera 10.50 (Pre Alpha) - 2350
Minefield 3.7a1pre (Gecko/20091225)- 2274
Firefox 3.5.6 - 1499

Interesting results methinks!

Opera for Mac isn't as optimized yet. But those results you've got there sure don't agree with all the other tests showing Safari lagging behind both Chrome and Opera.

I just ran Peacekeeper in the Windows version of Opera 10.5 using Crossover 8 on the same machine.

Safari 4.0.4 (Build r52531) - 4331
Chrome 4.0.282.0 (Build 35277) - 3390
Opera 10.50 Win32 (Pre Alpha) - 2580
Opera 10.50 OSX (Pre Alpha) - 2350
Minefield 3.7a1pre (Gecko/20091225)- 2274
Firefox 3.5.6 - 1499

Slight improvement over the OSX native version but still way short of Chromium and even more so of Safari.
