    they should just give up on this piece of crap.. either get to work on actual Opera.. or just focus on "web compression" and other mobile stuff, this junk will never go anywhere..

    Bashing aside(trust me, I have many choice colorful words for this Chrome based Opera), there is potential for this Opera if they continue to work with it. My biggest complaint has been the lack of bookmark support and some rendering issues.

    I'm a bit confused why there would be any rendering issue though since Chrome/Chromium do not seem to suffer from this.

    Bookmarks.. I guess they were trying to implement this Stash paradigm but obviously due to user hate mail, err, I mean user feedback they decided to start working on adding the bookmark system. I noticed in this version a disabled menu entry for "Bookmark Importer" and of course there is a bookmarks bar now.

    Now it seems that they are trying at least to implement some old Opera like features/functions to this new Opera. IMO they better continue that way or Opera is pointless and one might as well just use Chrome/Chromium.

    I offer 3 stars because I've seen worse chrome implementations and they are at least working this program and maybe they will resolve the rendering issue as well as many other things that users have mentioned.

    BTW, one more little complaint. I use Windows 7 32 bit with themes disabled, So basically I'm classic interface here and I use a dark color scheme. Opera does not work well with it's GUI. Tabs are light colored as well as the tab text.. Can't read a single tab! :(

    @Blaxima you say I'm not staying on-topic but I'm not the one who is commenting about what others do or don't do outside of here. You're the one doing that. Funny, isn't it?

    BTW, yeah SSE1 support is sooooooooooo important!

    Even miserable Chrome is better than this piece of trash.

    It seems being a Chrome clone still doesn't mean Opera will render pages like Google properly. There goes that argument for switching engines.

    More good news though, in an attempt to alienate even more Opera users, this new version no longer supports SSE1 processors(AMD Athlon XP, etc.) so those with older rigs need to look elsewhere.

    And to think, rafool is a mod over at the Opera forums. Way to stay on topic and highlight Opera's ........oh that's right, continue on

    Does this version support shortcut keys such for tabbing with number keys 1& 2?

    I've been a long time user of Opera but have switched to Firefox for three reasons. First because they wont produce a Unite free version, second because Opera can't seem to handle many Google cookies properly and third, Opera definitely got slower with version 10 and FF is now much faster. Try it and see.
