Indeed. I've been trying to keep an eye on the progress myself.

I love Opera. I think it's the most under rated browser of all time. :)

I've been using the betas for so long I forgot it wasn't actually released until now.

Want to see something interesting ?

That's from Opera 10, even though it says Opera 9.8
Apparently from now on Opera will identify itself as 9.8 and the real version number will be that bit on the end.

For those of you who may have missed it and want more details on why Opera decided to do their user agent string like this, please see this thread:

I used to use opera ...but then shifted to mozilla for some good reasons.

I heard the new opera browser is offering a very high download and surfing speed. I will definitely use it for that single reason..

What? Opera has been a leader in interface design.

The new Opera "turbo mode" destroys image quality, it's absolutely terrible. If you've ever seen what a mobile proxy does to image quality, this is just as bad.

When I tried it I actually spent about an hour trying to figure out what was wrong with an image script I was working on because I didn't realize Opera was running me through their content proxy for iamges.

It's fast, but if you're not on a slow connection it's probably not going to be worth using because of the horrible image quality. I used it because Opera detected a slow network connection and prompted me to use it. I think my connection was just slow that day or something.

I wish Opera would adopt something similar to Firefoxes extensions and get rid of these silly widgets. Probably the things that drive me nuts about both Opera and Firefox more than anything is that Opera has awesome user.js/css support built-in whereas in Firefox you have to install extensions to get it and even then it's kinda ugly when you've been exposed to the way Opera does it. Then there's Opera, it has built-in user.js/css support and a built-in mail/rss reader but the widgets are just silly and you have to be a rocket scientist to get the custom buttons to work the way you want.

I do like the way Opera handles the UI. I like being able to move the things around and place them where I want. I also like the built-in status buttons for page size and download speed type stuff.

I'm not sure whether I like the tab bar change in Opera 10. It makes it so you can extend the height of the tab bar and the tabs will show screen shots of their contents. It's a nifty trick but it can take up a lot of space in the browser if you want enough of a screen shot to be meaningful. I do know it drives me insane when I double click too far on the bottom of the tab bar and it toggles the tab bar fully extended or completely compressed. It doesn't save the height of your tab bar before doing it either which is frustrating if you do it on accident and then you have to resize your bar again.
