Opera 10.5 - Worlds Fastest Browsing Engine


From what I read in the opera website (I think desktop team blog), the developers say that peacekeeper does not score something (I forgot what is it but they said specifically what peacekeeper does not score) in Opera 10.50. That why the score in the peacekeeper of Opera 10.50 is not higher than chrome..

I searched and found it here -

It says :

Note that Futuremarks' Peacekeeper test does no include the results of their complex graphics tests in the overall score. We believe this is wrong in 2009 and will simply be silly if not changed in 2010.

Thanks i really need it.

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of problem: when trying to receive a file from irc (dcc protocol) opera says that the url contains illegal characters. I couldn't find anything about it on the net and overall, opera 10.10 never did this kind of thing. Hope someone may help me to fix this out. Thank you everybody.

Well you can always report bugs to Opera at desktop team blog (link: With your help, you can make Opera 10.50 better. I know it's a "Final" snapshot but not everything is perfect. I thought the Opera guys jumped to the final version too fast.

There is even newer version: 10.51
