Opera Software Everybody's favourite Norwegian browser maker has released the beta version of Opera 10.50, the next iteration of the featureful web browser. As Kroc already touched upon late last year, Opera 10.50 comes packed with a lot of improvements across the board, from a new JavaScript engine to an improved address field.

I don't find it to be crippled at all.

Oh man, you are so persistent ;)
It behavior is different than current stable, and will be different then next stable, because some thing aren't right:
Why does it open tabs in new windows when I set it not to do so?
Why it's on top of other windows so I can't use my auto-hide taskbar?
How come I can't remove some buttons if I go to Appearance > buttons, but then I can if exit Appearance dialog
I really hope toolbar will have major polish, as it distracts from whole layout (Opera 10.10 balances fine between Windows/OSX look - but new beta brutally mixes them - take a look at drop down boxes on "address bar", or just look at any toolbar or panel: if decision was made towards Windows 7 look, stick to it)
And I just tried it briefly, because I was quickly disappointed by overall - who knows what else is left there ;)

It's sure faster than before which is great, and Opera was always fastest browser on my Windows

No more than you are...

Uh, it's a beta.

What tabs?

Not really. Opera 10.5 actually looks like a Windows Vista/7 application.
