Opera 10 Alpha 1 now available

Opera has long been the pioneer of the browser world; many of the features that we take for granted in Firefox, IE and Safari actually began life in Opera. The browser also tends to have the best web standards support around, and the latest alpha preview of Opera 10 is no exception. Although the new Opera 10 is an alpha preview, and not recommended for anything more than testing, its noteworthy for being the first release to grab a perfect score on the ACID 3 browser stress test. The ACID tests are designed to push a browser’s limits when it comes to rendering web pages. The idea is that if browsers can render the ACID test pages, then they should be able to handle just about anything on the web.

Although the ACID 3 test has been around for some time, Opera 10 is the first release to pass it. Apple’s Safari browser, which was the first to pass the ACID 2 test, also passes ACID 3, but only using the developer nightly builds. Of course cutting edge web standards support isn’t the only thing coming in Opera 10. The first alpha also packs in revamped and much faster rendering engine, on-the-fly spell checking for text fields, support for HTML messages in Opera Mail, and an auto-update feature to force browser updates. We don’t recommend rushing out and downloading Opera 10 in its current alpha state, but the preview release is good news for Opera fans. So far Opera has not announced a time line for the final release of Opera 10.

    I love Opera, but I switched to Firefox for the addons.

    I hope Opera will add addons in the future, it is such a great browser.

    Actually Opera alpha is slower than developer versions of Firefox. ACID3 with 100 points was already passed by others, you know this is developer version, nothing more, only called alpha.

    Heh, i’m on Opera 10 atm, lol it has spellcheck :) )
    It’s running faster and better than Opera 9.50, no errors so far, customized it, with skins and pannels.

    I <3 Opera

    All the alpha/developer builds of the browsers except IE have passed the ACID 3 test. Opera was one of the last to pass it though.

    Opera was the first browser to actually pass the ACID3 test.
    The key there was that 100 points does not equal a pass by itself. Opera managed to score all the points early this year but only managed to fully pass acid3 later.

    Nice to see some Opera appreciation here.
    Been using Opera since version 5 – it’s the perfect tool for any serious seeker.

    To protektor and others, Opera is one of the first to get the highest score(s) on the Acid tests – while being one of the fastest beating even Lynx on performance tests. It’s nice to see other browsers finally catching up to standards – but don’t forget who started the race.
    Opera has pushed the browser industry forwards many times – I love them for that.

    Opera is great.
    The mouse clicking for navigation is so addictive. I keep doing it in other programs by mistake.

    Firefox is not what it use to be. These 3.0x versions are slow as hell. I downloaded a 3.1 beta version,and it seems to be a little faster. If Opera will support plug-ins, i`ll definitely upgrade from Firefox.

    AGREED! Give me my Adblock, linkification and a few others and I’ll be over in a flash.

    I don’t know what I’d do without Opera. The power of it is only apparent when you start delving into its hidden features. No need to mess around with plugins!

  33. Hmmmm

    Yay i’m not alone lol….I’ve begun to strongly prefer Opera over Firefox (still like Firefox a lot though), IE and Safari.

    If firebug was truly available for Opera, I would use nothing else but Opera. Unfortunately, I have to use Firefox for coding… and porn. In any case, anything is better than IE. I have lost count of how many of my friends had Windows crash on them, choked full of virus-crap, etc until I told them to leave IE behind and switch to Opera. That simple. IE is a magnet for trouble…

    Opera is a great browser. Too bad it doesn’t get as much publicity as Firefox. I prefer opera because it does a lot of things that Firefox needs plugins to do. And opera has been doing them for years.

    No plugins – no opera for me. Firefox beats it hands down because of that.

    If only opera was compatible with google online services. Many of them run on some compatibility mode with disabled features.

    Otherwise Opera is fast, light, natively supports vertical tabs, mouse gestures, and more.

    lol so basically opera is better then firefox itself.. the only reason people use firefox or say its better is because of addons right..
