If you are up for some reading, then here is something to check out.
Lawrence Eng, the former employee of Opera Software, has shared his story on what it was like to work for the company whose products are used by millions of people worldwide and how challenging can it be to actually create such software when each individual is different.
The first release candidate of Opera 11.10 has been just released and can be downloaded here.
According to the official blog post, the following version continues to polish the Speed Dial, includes lots of bug fixes and has various improvements that reduce the power consumption.
One thing I did not like about setup is the fact that it was trying to connect to the Internet (guess for the installation tracking purposes).

Some time ago, TomsHardware has published a nice list of benchmark results for the top 5 web browsers. Unfortunately, they did not test the final version of Firefox 4.
Well, this is no longer the case as the most recent tests now include the following:
Internet Explorer 9
Google Chrome 10
With the release of Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 4, it’s time to find out, how those releases affected major web browsers market share for the month of March.
Despite the launch of IE9, Microsoft’s web browser continues the downtrend. This time it has decreased by 0.85 point, from 56.77% to 55.92%.

Now here is a new benchmark for you to talk about: power consumption.
Turns out, Microsoft optimized Internet Explorer 9 not only for the performance but also for your wallet and productivity.
According to IE Blog, when it comes to power consumption, IE9 and Firefox 4 are the browsers to die for.
