Opera 10 is now available in its third beta version from
http://www.opera.com/next/. Performance and stability were
purportedly prioritized in beta 3, with improvements to Opera Turbo,
a compression tool for faster surfing, and refinements to the overall
look and feel of the previous Opera 10 betas.
Multiple Opera users who tested the previous betas shared their
preferences for more visual tab options. Opera has responded in beta
3 by offering options for tab placement. Now users can view their
visual thumbnail tabs on the right or left side of the screen, in
addition to placement options on the top or bottom. Tabs are
resizable and the thumbnail view is optional.
In Opera 10 beta 3, designer Jon Hicks continues his renovation of
the user interface (UI) by implementing several new tweaks designed
to make using Opera even more efficient. The upgrade also supports a
total of 38 languages, sports an integrated crash logger and offers
increased speed when browsing over slow network connections.
