    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.

      ""Stability Enhancements"..... NOT!"

      June 03, 2014   |   By stevencee

      Version: Opera 22.0.1471.50


      When it works, it's pretty fast


      Completely UNSTABLE! Worked pretty well until the newest update, now it can't open pages, or they are partially open, or they open, then close, even their own Preference & Plug-In pages!

      I've wasted the last hour trying to get it to just open pages & windows or to keep them open, without crashing constantly. I wish I could just go back to the previous version. There's no excuse for companies to release "Updates" that end up tanking the whole program!


      Get it together Opera developers BEFORE you unleash updates on us.....
