Opera 10 gets a facelift in new snapshot build

With their developers continuing work on version 10 of the browser, the Opera team has decided to release a snapshot build of a potential new look. It's a definite change from the the thick black tabs used in the previous version and more like the designs implemented in other popular browsers.

One minor gripe I have with the redesign is the slightly off-center main navigation bar. It's subtle, but the few extra pixels below the buttons look more like an oversight than a design decision.

Hide the main menu, and Opera 10's interface looks a lot like Chrome and Safari. Beauty is, of course, in the eye of the beholder, so whether or not the new skin helps Opera's popularity remains to be seen. The browser itself shows a lot of promise, and is worth playing with if you haven't done so already.
