Opera 10 is quietly being sampled out to beta testers
From the Opera Website:
“Note that this alpha release is not intended to show off the full feature set of Opera 10—that will be a while off. It is the first public release of the Opera Presto 2.2 rendering engine, which will be present in Opera 10, made available so you can start trying out some of the new Web technology support. ”
We love to play with shiny new toys so we downloaded Opera 10 alpha for a spin. This is a nice browser. Most of the compatibility problems with Opera’s famous strict standards adherence are gone.
Speed is way way up!
The classic Opera speed dial is even better.
While Opera 10 is probably, today, not a good choice for your default browser, this is absolutely worth a look. In fact, I have no bugs to report in my use and this story was just published using it. That’s better than Apple Safari 4 with which I could not publish anything.
I will publish a speed test report comparing it to Explorer 8, Firefox 3.1, Apple Safari 4 and Google Chrome when it gets to be Opera 10 Beta instead of Alpha.
