Opera 10.5 Pre-Alpha :


hi i use opera all the time wouldnt use any other works wonderful good job best browers i ever used ty roy in salem maine

hmm i think this is great, i think Opera is gonna be my future browser, its still beta version, has some bugs, waiting for the stable version for it & m very excited because Opera has really impressed my by its latest browsers and its features.

Opera is a GREAT browser!!! But...with this pre alpha release, where's the tool shortcut?, or the edit feature? how about some workable page controls that make this a practical browser and not just a fast one! Can't hardly wait for this version....even with new extentions, I'm tired of Chrome....Please HURRY, Opera!!!

I downladed, installed and opened.
First surprise: It opened with a page of their website saying that I wasn't using the latest version and recommended strongly to download version 10.1!!!!!!!
Second (negative) surprise: All the shortcuts to my most used sites (email boxes, information sites, etc., etc.) had not been transferred from the previous version I had been using. I have to start all over again.
Haven't gone any further yet!
