Opera 10 Beta 1 Released with Plenty of Goodies
Article by George Norman
On 03 Jun 2009
The development process of the Opera 10 web browser has reached another milestone with the release of Opera 10 Beta 1, marking the move out of Alpha and closer to a final, stable Opera 10 – albeit that may take a while. If you want to put the software through its paces, or if you just want to see how the Beta looks like, then you should know that Opera 10 Beta 1 is available for public download. We will advise you to be cautious with this release; as with any software that carries a Beta tag, you will encounter bugs and other problems.

“Your Web browser is the most important piece of software you will ever use. We think Opera 10 will redefine how you can enjoy the Web. We have more surprises on the way, but when you try the features, enjoy the accelerated performance and get a glimpse at our shiny new wrapping, I think Opera 10 beta will excite both long-time users and those new to Opera,” explained Opera CEO Jon von Tetzchner in an interview for Pocket-lint.
