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.

"Fast, reliable, feature packed alternative to Safari"

June 30, 2010  |  By Jmanmadness23

 |  Version: Opera 10.54

Pros

Very fast, incorporates multitouch gestures, clean interface

Cons

Crashed once so far, but its not like Safari doesn't crash, so as long as thats not persistant, should be good.

Summary

I like to have a good alternative browser do my default safari. Firefox was just too slow and wasn't stable (no clue why). But Opera is proving to be a solid browser.

"VERY slow! HORRIBLE graphics! It gets worse!"

June 28, 2010  |  By redgeminipa

 |  Version: Opera 10.54

Pros

COULD have many nice usable features.

Cons

SLOOOOW! HORRIBLE graphics!

Summary

Sine Apple still hasn't fixed the bug that very prematurely signs you out of websites, I was looking at more alternatives. (10.6.4 & Safari 5)
I gave Opera a try. I used it for about 15 minutes. The "Turbo" is a joke. It has the same premature log out issues as Safari. The graphics on EVERY website were extremely grainy. Videos take FOREVER to load and play. It's a memory hog!
It's been removed from my Mac. I'll be sticking with FireFox and Camino!
