Opera 10.52 final now available for Mac

If you own a Mac and have been waiting for a final build before trying out "the world's fastest browser," now's your chance. Opera has released version 10.52 for Mac -- for both current Intel systems and older, non-Intel machines. What does Opera 10.5 have going for it? Well, there's that speedy Carakan JavaScript engine, Opera Unite (a handy tool for less technically-apt users to share files,...

Time to stop laughing: Opera hits 50M users on desktop, over 100M total

Ardent supporters of other browsers love to poke fun at Opera when the opportunities arise. After today's press release from the company, I'm guessing their take on things is "go ahead and laugh, we're still kicking ass." Opera has announced that their user base has surpassed 100 million users. That figure includes both Opera's desktop and mobile users, with each group accounting for about 50%...

Opera 10.51 tears it up on Linux, too

I've been impressed with Opera 10.5 (and now 10.51) on Windows, so with the Ubuntu 10.04 beta now installed in VMware on my system it was time to check it out in Linux. Fortunately for me (and anyone else who wants to try it), Opera has just released new snapshot builds for Linux and they're now available for download in easy-to-install .deb and .rpm packages. The bottom line: it's still fast...

Portable Opera@USB updates, brings 10.50's speed to your flash drive

Now that the final version has been released and the public is happily playing with the new features and increased speed of Opera 10.50, it's time to update that portable version on your USB flash drive. Fortunately, Opera@USB has just released an update. Both a standalone portable version of Opera 10.50 and an upgrader for users of Opera@USB's previous 10.X versions are available. Teamed...

The fat lady sings: Opera 10.50 final now available for Windows

After a weekend of furiously updated release candidates, Opera has turned version 10.50 loose on the general web-browsing public. You can download Opera 10.50 for Windows from Opera's site -- and if you're running an older version of the browser you should seriously consider upgrading. 10.50 is an excellent browser, and it's been winning fans with its speed ever since the new Carakan...

Opera 10.50 beta 2 keeps the pedal to the metal

Opera has put together one heck of a nice browser with version 10.50, and their developers continue pressing ahead. With today's release of Opera 10.50 beta 2, things are looking good for the alternative browser. As you'd expect with a beta build, the changelog sports a lengthy list of bug and crash fixes and there have also been numerous subtle tweaks to the default skin. The opera:config...

Opera 10.5 hits beta, still faster than Google Chrome

Yes, it's here! Yes, it's faster than Google Chrome! Well, truth is Opera 10.5 has been faster than Google Chrome ever since the Carakan engine was bolted on in December 2009...But the bottom line is that Opera 10.5 is shaping up to be a very compelling browser. One big change I'm particularly happy about is that Google Reader is now fully functional out-of-the-box. In past versions Opera...

Opera outs another 10.5 alpha snapshot: still fast, now with Google Reader action!

Opera's dev crew has been busy toiling away at version 10.5, and while they're not quite ready to make the jump to beta (despite reports to the contrary) they have just released another snapshot build. Build 3199 is all about tweaks and patches. The functionality you'll get has been present in Opera 10.5 since the original pre-alpha build back in December of last year -- things like the slick...

Opera 10.5's new Carakan Javascript engine is fast - Google Chrome fast.

I've been waiting to try it out since I heard the first rumblings about Carakan, and it's here at long last. Opera's new Javascript engine has finally appeared in the developer build just posted on their website. The bottom line: it's fast. Carakan should serve as proof to the world that Opera is serious about building a competitive browser. Putting Opera 10.5 through the paces with my...

Opera 10.5 pre-alpha leaks: Windows 7 integration, per-tab private browsing

While version 10.5 has not been released yet by Opera officially, there's a pre-alpha build that has been turned loose by someone. It seems legit enough: help -> about reports that the browser is version 10.5 internal, build 20192. It's important to remember that 1) this is a pre-alpha and 2) this could well be a build Opera never intended to see the light of day. In benchmarks like V8 and...

Opera 10.5 alpha here soon, may finally include speedy Carakan Javascript engine

No, that's not Opera 10.5 pictured above, it's 10.2 alpha. 10.5's first snapshot won't be available for a few more days -- likely on the 22nd of December -- but it could be a very important release for the boys from Oslo. In typical Opera fashion, the first murmurings about the new release are cryptic and don't give much away. Not at first glance, anyway. But with the post from Huib Kleinhout...
