    WOW.  20% faster than the latest Chrome nightly, 35% faster than Chrome released..
     
    That’s REALLY impressive, Opera kills everything else in performance, features AND standards compliance.

      20% faster than Chrome? I doubt that. If anything, they are just about even. But I’m sure the Chrome guys have more performance stuff up their sleeves.

      • Daniel Hendrycks says:

        You were saying that about Chrome 5 too. I am pretty sure the developers of Opera have more up their sleeve too if Chrome gets ahead.

    @yamin
    benchmark and real world testing should be different depending your internet connection speed and condition, in my experience i can load gmail, facebook and google wave much faster on Opera than Chrome

    Wow!! Opera rocks, I hope the Opera users will increase on PC.

  5. For me Chrome was (current release) was little bit faster on Linux. However during Peacekeeper test I’ve had 20+ tabs opened in Opera, when in Chrome only one :P

    Does anyone know how to make Firefox’s addressbar behave like Opera’s used to? You know: one word – go to url, multiple words – search

        Post- 10.5 Opera doesn’t do this anymore. I’m still using 10.1, but already sites like Youtube are breaking in it.
         
        Opera is aware of the problem and the number of people complaining, but still won’t give us the option to change it back.
