I’ve been an avid fan and user of Firefox for about 8 years now and I know most of you guys who are regulars here know that. Although Firefox is my browser of choice, I do have other browsers installed on my laptop – Internet Explorer 8, Flock, Safari 4, Google Chrome and Opera. I have all of these browsers because I use them when I test my projects or when I test WordPress themes and plugins that I review here on JaypeeOnline.
I make it a point to keep my other web browsers up-to-date and earlier today, I found out that Opera announced the Beta 3 release of Opera 10.
Oslo, Norway – August 13, 2009
After more than 10 million test runs and ample user feedback, Opera 10 is now available in its third beta version from http://www.opera.com/next/. Performance and stability were 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.
Here are the new features of Opera 10 Beta 3:
I’ve downloaded, installed and tried out the Opera 10 Beta 3 on my laptop and I must say that it loads pages quite fast. Inspite of the fast page load times and several new features, I’m still sticking to Firefox coz of the plugins/extensions that I use for work and which I can’t live without. Although I do use Opera Mobile on my AT&T Tilt, but that’s only until Mozilla releases their mobile browser Fennec.
You can download Opera 10 Beta 3 here.
How about you guys? Anyone here using Opera as their web browser of choice? Have you tried Opera 10 Beta 3?
