Editors' Review

Opera 10 maintains the program's tradition of striving for the fastest, smallest, and most full-featured browser available. Opera covers the basics with tabbed browsing, mouse-over previews, a customizable search bar, advanced bookmarking tools, and simple integration with e-mail and chat clients. Mouse-gesture support, keyboard shortcuts, and drag-and-drop functionality round out the essentials. Opera 10.52 marks the Mac debut of the Carakan JavaScript engine, which the publisher claims is 10 times faster than the previous version. Even in the middle of benchmarking tests, that claim doesn't seem far-fetched.

Opera's extras push it to among the top of the class. Opera's desktop widgets can appear anywhere, even after you close the browser, and Opera Turbo gives users on dial-up connections faster page-rendering speeds. There's Growl and multitouch trackpad support, support for some HTML5 including the video tag, and Opera Unite and its deep feature set for file sharing and streaming is now available to Mac users. Meanwhile, Opera Link enables Bookmarks, the Personal bar, Speed Dial, and Notes synchronization across all other Opera instances, including the iPhone's Opera Mini. Quick Find has improved the search tool, allowing for full text searching from the address field, the history panel, and opera:historysearch. We're also fans of the new inline spell checker that supports 51 languages.

Opera has also finally received an autoupdater and integrated crash reporting. With its combination of speed and built-in services, Opera undoubtedly has what it takes to unseat even the biggest-name browsers. You just need to hear it sing.

"No real benefit."

May 25, 2010  |  By jthomasa1

 |  Version: Opera 10.53

Pros

Nothing stands out.

Cons

Not a terribly user-friendly interface. Unstable.

Summary

I didn't use it for very long. It had problems starting up and there were no real benefits over Safari or Firefox.

"Better than Google Chrome"

May 14, 2010  |  By nicholas_bck

 |  Version: Opera 10.53

Pros

Loads fast, though user interface is a bit difficult to find out. Can sync with multiple devices running Opera.

Cons

Cannot load some pages properly, crashes sometimes

Summary

10.54 is a big improvement over 10.10 but has quite a few bugs they need to fix

"New Version of Opera!"

May 09, 2010  |  By rpatrick--2008

 |  Version: Opera 10.53

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
After fishing around, using Google, I found under the Opera Community forum, that iGlasses is indeed not compatible with Opera; an updated version of iGlasses has/will be released, and a "newer"version of Opera is available; whether it is beta or not, the version I am using is 10.5.4; type in Google Opera and iGlasses; you will come to a page where you will have this release, either Universal or Intel.
All was working before and is working now.
With all the complaining, I am in the minority to have "Zero"problems because I utilize no plug ins and never did. Lastly, Opera is a browser that not only has it's own EMail client, but a bit torrent client as well!
For me, no problems, no crashes, and no complaints whatsoever!

"This Browser is unusable!"

May 02, 2010  |  By Eric Blair

 |  Version: Opera 10.53

Pros

Can't tell you what I liked about this Browser. I crashed almost immediately - over and over again.

Cons

This Browser should have never been released. It is unstable and unusable.

Summary

I've never had a bad update from Opera before this one. They should be ashamed. Maybe Opera 10.54 or 10.6 will be work.My advice to others: stay with Opera 10.10 for now.
