    Cool, WebGL and HW acceleration work like a charm :toast: and about:gpu says uses OpenGL rendering :)

    EDIT: In my netbook WebGL and HW acceleration don't work the Intel GMA 3150 is in the black list :cry:

    The ram consumption is a bit too much for me (500MB after just a few tabs open), disabling hw acceleration rectified this.

    Okay I noticed major annoying things since build 1090 :

    1. they removed favicon on address bar
    2. bookmarked url take a backseat and went under url history on address bar dropdown, this may seems not a big deal unless you're like me and like to call bookmarked site by typing on address bar.

    those 2 things are very retarded change imo, any way to get back old opera behavior?

    ^ I'm afraid no. We'd need to wait for beta and see what changes will be there.

    1. In my case alpha (sometimes) crashes when I try to close it.
    2. It also crashes when I try to access my gmail and if it doesn't crash it can just fail to open it.


    But it definitely is faster more stable and more responsive than pre-alfa.

    Is there any ad block for youtube? Because I usually have videos going on in the background and every freeking time I watch a video i get the 3 min long adds where you have to click for them to go away. Is there a addon that will do that? Or will I have to go back to firefox if I want that.

    Gah, I hope they come to their sense. There is no other browser that do things retardedly like this, or maybe this is their (idiotic) way to distinct themselves?

    As for crash, this alpha has been rock solid for me, crash rarely, if ever, happen and I can't reproduce it.

    I use this http://www.fanboy.co.nz/adblock/opera.html manual installation but it's pretty easy and the how to is there.

    Here doesn't crash when closing but sometimes the process remains open and I have to force kill it or Opera will refuse to open saying it is waiting to close.

    Gmail opens and works fine here, but scrolling is extremely slow here and the page flickers a lot during scrolling, .

    CSS animations work slowly and some CSS effects in some pages work slow and uses lots of CPU

    Sometimes the extension to block Flash ads fails and they appear, making the computer slow as hell :ohwell:
    [/LIST]

    Otherwise it's close to perfect :toast:

    EDIT: I am using hardware rendering :)

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I use software rendering, maybe that's why crash don't happen.

    @Derek12
    Use plugin on demand ctrl+f12 -> advanced -> content -> enable plugin on demand. pretty effective on blocking any flash.

    Oh and in my netbook those CSS animations are fast as well and it's using SW rendering, I will disable HW acceleration in my desktop and check, maybe is because I am using the beta 11.10 drivers lol

    UPDATE: done but it's the same :cry:

    I've tested in Windows 8 and it's the same, what strange Opera works faster in my netbook than in my desktop :confused: anyway it's still largely faster than the rest of browsers. It works even faster after disabling Aero so now I am using the old fashioned but fast Windows classic theme :)
