  1. Surprise, surprise :)
    Opera devs are amazing :P
    It was of course to be expected, but not so fast :)
    For chrome this update alone would be a next major version :P

    It’s Alpha or Beta?

  3. Andylee says:

    @Fiasco: It is neither an Alpha nor  a Beta. It’s a snapshot… a dev built that is released in between the official Alpha and Beta releases. These are exclusively available through the desktopteam blog and help the devs at Opera Software to find bugs faster

    I don’t like the new opera but guess what? When I try to install the last version (which I did like) after doing a system re-insatall, it automaticaly upgrades to the newest version before I get a chance to cofigure it so it won’t do that!  Goodbye Opera!
