Singing a speedier tune

1 Sep 2009

Opera 10 is officially out. And so far, I like what I see. It loads fast and it has some great new features like Thumbnail Tabs and even a new icon. Oddly, as the icon got cleaner, the interface seems to have gotten a little more complicated. And for my taste it’s a little over-designed with gradients and the like. But the browser itself still functions supremely well.

They’ve put together an ad touting the speed gain from their Turbo compression engine.

You can read more about the new version of Opera over at Hicksdesign and TechCrunch.

So if you’re thinking about upgrading from a crap browser to a real browser, I highly recommend it. Download Opera today.
