The endless war of the browsers may now have a clear winner: the OPERA 10 BETA 1. It was released a few days ago as an open public beta but the non-developer Opera-fans like myself couldn’t keep their hands off it because it is just too cool to resist. And the reason why I’m writing this blog post is because I believe you should have a shot at the best browsing experience too!
Ladies n Gents, let me give you a few reasons (read list below) to throw Firefox into the dark corners of your computer. We shall not speak of Internet Explorer because it would be a shame to take its name in a post about the best browsers.
Here’s the list of new features (excluding those unchanged since 9.64):
- Opera Turbo (fast loading for those on low bandwidth… Opera Mini uses it, now even you can.)
- Automatic updates
- Crash logging
- Inline spelling checker
- 100/100 and pixel-perfect on the Acid3 test (NO BROWSER ON EARTH CAN BEAT THIS SCORE!! Take that Firefox!)
- Significantly improved performance, particularly on CSS/HTML rendering (Fastest getting faster!)
(From Opera’s official site: 40 percent faster rendering engine that’s specifically optimized for webapp sites like Facebook and Gmail)
- Opera Mail HTML Compose support
- Awesome new look and layout specially designed by JohnHicks.
… and much more (READ THIS OFFICIAL CHANGELOG)!
Here’s an excerpt from LifeHacker:
The biggest and most noticeable change for newcomers and Opera veterans alike will be the newest tab features, an area where Opera has long been an innovator and pack leader. The default view of your tabs is a series of rounded-off, text-only stubs between your menu and address bars. Grab and expand the divider below your tabs, though, and you get a customized view of visual tab previews, with buttons to close each of them and add another tab. Whether you use that vertical space or not, hovering over a tab with your mouse pointer now brings up a quick preview of the contents (illustrated in the top-most image).
