    Looks like Opera Engineers took a look at how linux kernel manages the memory.This means that linux is becoming more and more important.

      YARLY!

      Those are just themes. Opera doesn't use my Qt style. Who said anything about Oxygen? It's stupid to have Opera look like Oxygen while I'm using QtCurve (which Firefox uses without problems; the Gtk version of QtCurve.)


      Use the Qt4 build.
      I do (did). opera-10.00.gcc4-qt4.x86_64.tar.bz2.

        Guess I still have good reason to hate Opera then.

          Opera 10 0 Browser Released With New Interface

          I thought I had been identified as a tester, but I have not received any information about a link or a private section which each of you will be able to access. Has this already happened and I was left out of testing?

            Well, thought I'd pop this in here. Just ran the browser benchmark, Peacekeeper, over at futuremark. Guess what browser came up dead last in linux?



            Before anybody asks, no plug-ins were installed on FF.

              I think Opera initially took step into wrong direction. Right now, Opera tries to be a Jack of all trades. There's a browser, Bittorrent client, Email client, IRC client, Opera Unity, widgets and whatnot. I cannot say anything about the quality and the feature set of these parts because I haven't used Opera much, but it must be a hell to maintain all of them.

              Implementing a good support for extensions would be awesome. This way Opera can lure much more people and give a good competition for that train wreck that is Firefox.

                Deanjo, you forgot to add a FF under Wine benchmark

                  @deanjo: On what architecture did you run this tests? Firefoxs' new JavaScript VM doesn't work on x86_64 yet (but hopefully soon), so if you're running a 64bit Firefox that explains your result.
                  The official results on the peacekeeper website (as displayed when you finish benchmarking your browser) also seem to indicate that Firefox 3.5 is actually slightly faster than Opera when the new VM is used (I guess they ran their tests on x86 Windows).
