UPDATE: we've been a bit busy so we did not cover any news lately, so here's a brief Opera update. The browser went through 2 Release candidates and as of today, the final version of Opera 10 has been launched. See the announcement here, download Opera 10 Final here.

Original article:
From the “plenty of goodies” category in our filling cabinet, where we filed the development process of the Opera 10 web browser, we bring you this: Opera 10 Beta 3 has been released. The software is available for public download right now, so feel free to grab it and put it through its paces. Compared to the previous two Beta versions, this one is a lot more stable and a lot faster (the Presto engine is reportedly 40% faster and the Turbo compression has improved as well).


“We have been doing a lot of work on stability since beta 1 and beta 2, which means that this is likely one of our most stable releases ever. Keep reporting those crashes, though! We want to make Opera even more stable for the final version,” commented Håvard K. Moen, tester on the Opera Desktop Team.

The Opera Software team has also focused on making this 3rd Beta available in many more localized versions. Opera 10 Beta 3 comes with support for about 40 languages: Byelorussian, British English, Bulgarian, Chinese Simplified and Traditional, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, Canadian French, Frisian, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk, Polish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Spanish, Latino Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, and Ukrainian. Opera would appreciate your feedback on the translations, so if you find any problems with the translations, use the Bug Report Wizard to report them.

From a visual point of view, Opera 10 Beta 3 comes with these changes:
- Visual tabs are available on the left or right hand side of the window.
- The attention state design of the tabs has been improved. There’s a dot that tells you if a page is unviewed.
- The spellchecker menu has been moved to the following location: Preferences -> Advanced -> Browsing
- More facelifts for the browser skin.

There is one noticeable feature that’s missing from Opera 10 Beta 3: Opera Unite. Håvard K. Moen again: “Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about Opera Unite! It might not be part of beta 3, but we have still been working hard on improving it. So for those of you who want to test that, please download one of the [Unite] builds instead of the official beta 3. These builds are basically the same as beta 3, only with Unite included.”

If you would like to get Opera 10 Beta 3, a download location is available here.
For a more detailed list of changes please see the changelog for the
Windows, Mac and Linux version.

If you would like to get Opera 10 Beta 3 with Unite, a download location is available
