Opera unveils Opera 10 Release Candidate

Full version expected on September 1

Opera Software has unveiled the release candidate version of its web browser Opera 10.

Opera said the Release Candidate is "feature complete, with a surprising array of new features, a fresh look and feel, a new application icon, and enhanced speed and performance". The full version of the web browser is expected to be made publicly available on September 1.

Opera 10 benefits from Opera Turbo, the new bandwidth-booster for slow Internet connections. The browser also features improvements to Opera Mail, Opera's built-in email client, as well as resizeable thumbnail tabs for tabbed browsing and the chance to personalise the overall look and feel of the start page. Opera claims the browser is more than 40 percent faster than Opera 9.6.

"The release candidate pushes us closer to the final launch of Opera 10," said Jan Standal, vice president of Desktop Products, Opera.

"We paid special attention to the mail client, which is one of our most enduring and popular features. Now, we are very close to releasing the best browser in Opera's long history."

Opera 10 Release Candidate can be downloaded from Opera's website.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
