Filed under
Software

I thought i’d give a quick review of Opera 10.0 Alpha 1 that I recently installed on my openSUSE 11.1 RC1 box.

What’s new:

Updated engine
Opera Presto 2.2 is the newest rendering engine for the Opera browser. It provides significant improvements in speed, performance and security.

30% Faster on the real Web
We optimized the Opera Presto 2.2 engine to be much faster on resource intensive pages such as Gmail and Facebook.

Great-looking standards
With an Acid3 100/100 score, Web Fonts support, RGBA/HSLA color and SVG improvements, Opera 10 alpha is ready for the next generation of Web applications.
