Opera 10.50 Leaked: Screenshots, Features and Download LinksOur reader Somebody has come across a DownloadSquad post about presumably leaked Opera 10.50 pre-alpha build.

Although this isn’t likely to be a version, which is coming on Tuesday (as there are no noticeable JavaScript performance improvements), it still includes some of the upcoming new features, such as:

Private browsing
Windows 7 integration
Improved find
Presto 2.5
… and improved user interface

On the other hand, new JavaScript engine might appear only in newer alpha releases. We will find out very soon.

    Also, don’t forget to check out the new find.

    • nobody

      find in page (.) does look better and safarish, but is unfortunatelly slow :/

      it is amazing, that they’ve fixed and improved this, but form autocomplete (the most requested feature) was ignored..

      • nvm

        “the most requested feature”


        • http://www.pallab.net Pallab

          If not the most requested, it is definitely one of the most requested features. I have been requesting it for half a decade or more. I have seen numerous threads pertaining to this in the official forums. It as been requested thousands of times in the past. But, clearly it is something opera is interested in.

          And this is one of the reasons I still kee Fx+Lastpass hanging around.

          • kryz

            That sounds an awful lot like “I want this and have seen some threads about it, therefore it is the most requested”… Selective memory is a very common human condition.

          • nobody

            Purdi? again..

  • nvm

    LOL, it looks like Chrome. Sort of.

  • Matheus

    It’s just an internal build to test something exclusive. Not the final full package, that will come on December 22th.

    See… no improvements… no Carakan and no new Presto version

    • nobody

      it has new presto:

      this is what dragonfly returns, and it is 100% reliable information

      User Agent: Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.1; U; en) Presto/2.5.18 Version/10.50

      you can check it yourself by launching dragonfly and then going to settings/environment

    do want. can’t wait for the real build.

    (btw, who is the genius that makes screenshot using the .gif format? holy shit, it’s almost the year 2010!)

    • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

      That would be me :-)

      • Iron84

        just to be clear, i’m grateful for the info, but a cleaner image would have made all look better :)

        • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

          I understand that :-) Will keep that in mind, thanks.

          • http://my.opera.com/DanielHendrycks/ Daniel Hendrycks

            Yeah, I kinda wish that you would stop making every image a GIF.

    • nobody

      i would be surprised if opera didnt say that.

      but i’m surprised, that they’ve spent few days deleting any mentions of this build from their site, instead of revealing its existence.

      and that phrase about trojans sounds like parents talking to their child ‘dont do that or trolls will eat your head’..

      and i dont believe, that this build is OLD as they claim. most probably it is very very close to what will be released on 22nd.

      • heee

        you are surprised they dont want an unfinished version leaked? wow

        Internal builds normally don’t go through a lot of QA and it is possible that they have a lot of features not enabled. It is also possible that they have some security holes.
        Also, since we don’t know the source of the leak, it is quite possible that someone decided to put a trojan alongwith the file and distribute it. So Opera is right in warning users to wait for the official product to be released. It’s a different matter that most people would try to get their hands on it without waiting, but they had to warn them in the first place. I don’t think they did anything wrong.

    • http://my.opera.com/rafaelluik Rafael

      Good that I’m not running it, I aways wait for official / final things. :)

  • Mark G

    This is quite a recent build. Look at the digital signature…

    ‎18 ‎December ‎2009 09:23:32

    • kryz

      That it was built that day doesn’t mean it was built from a code branch with recent code.

  • Mark G

    Another “gem”. In the addressbar dropdown that shows history, you can delete individual items.

    • blah

      yeah, it was built on 18th which is the day it leaked, so what? You don’t know what code this is!

  • bingo007

    the skin is worse…they should have kept the menu bar in its place.

    • kryz

      That’s not the skin. That’s the toolbar layout.

    • lucideer

      you can easily turn the menu bar back on.

    Would be a big problem to replace the gig by a jpg screenshot? I would say this may take 1 minute!

    • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

      The problem is that I already configured Opera a bit, anyway, added one more png picture. Also, replaced that small .gif with modified one :-)

      Since new release is coming tomorrow, will post them in png.

    Thanks, your setup looks nice :)

  • Dresandreal Sprinklehorn

    I liked 10.20 better

    • Somebody

      Really? What is there to not like in 10.50? :O

  • Marcus

    Opera fanboy purdi is a real dickhead btw, but well, i guess everyone knows it :D
