Opera 10.5 hits beta, still faster than Google Chrome
One big change I'm particularly happy about is that Google Reader is now fully functional out-of-the-box. In past versions Opera couldn't get past loading the header, but that's a thing of the past with 10.5 beta. Those Windows 7 shell integration features we showed you in December are still included, as is the nifty per-tab private browsing.
Opera seems to be most proud of the speed factor, calling 10.5 'the fastest browser on Earth." I suppose they went with that just in case some developers on Coruscant are coding something faster...
Curious to see just how fast Opera 10.5 beta is? Download it and try it out!
ed note: one thing which escaped earlier detection is the new recycle bin icon in the top-right corner. you guessed it, it provides one-click access to your recently closed tabs. nice!
