Opera 10 Sneak Peek

Today, Opera Software introduces the first look at Opera 10. An alpha version of Opera 10 is now available here. This release gives people a taste of Opera’s new rendering engine, Opera Presto 2.2 — the foundation of all future Opera 10 products. Opera Presto 2.2 offers approximately a 30-percent-faster browsing experience as compared to Opera Presto 2.1, introduced in Opera 9.5 in June 2008. Opera has fine-tuned its standards support and, as a result, Opera 10 alpha achieves an Acid3 100/100 Test score. This version also provides Web developers with a whole range of new technologies for building better Web sites.

Other new features in Opera 10 alpha include spell-checking as you type, as well as auto-updating to the latest versions as they become available. Opera Mail also has added support for HTML formatting of e-mails.

“My favorite development in this release is the support for new Web technologies, which allows people to explore new ways of using the Internet,” says Johan Borg, Vice President of Consumer Engineering, Opera Software. “Our 100/100 Acid3 Test score is only a first indication of the impact these new Web technologies will have. We look forward to your feedback on Opera 10.”

Opera Internet Browser was always (for me) better in w3c compatibility then any others, but for some time it has (as for me) to big memory usage.

Wrong picture. That picture shows O9 as being 30% slower than O10, and O10 would therefore be 50% faster than O9. But it's not! It's 30% faster. The red bar in the graph should be at the 77% point, not 66% point.

Idiot marketing department.

Agreed. And on a PDA Opera 9 Mobile is not as good as other offerings (sadly).

OMG in-line spell check, HA! I can do away with Aspell when this comes out :D
Love Opera, its features have always been great for me, I get the occasional setting problem, and its form handling isn't perfect on all sites, however for me it is still my #1, can't wait for 10 to get released. awesome!
