Opera, the browser that gets very little lip service, but holds a dear place in a lot of users hearts hit version 10 today. It’s only a release candidate, but you can head on over there and give it a try. The release is bringing it up to date with Safari 3 and Chrome’s visual website bookmarks and they’ve even given the application the ability to use a web service as the primary email client for email links. They’ve also increased the speed by 40%, added an inline spell checker, and revamped their web developer tools.
All in all, it sounds like a solid update is in the works, and that the final version will contend with some of the other heavy hitters. We’ll save our full review for the final version, but if you’re interested in where the browser’s heading you should go try out the release candidate.
