Opera 10 final release is fast approaching. Today Opera released what should be the final beta build of Opera (to be followed by a RC or even final build). The focus during this build was on performance and stability. Although there aren’t any major new features there are plenty of minor changes.
John Hicks has been working really hard. The theme has been tweaked and numerous UI inconsistency issues has been fixed. Also present in beta 3 is a new attention state design where a dot tells you if a page requires your attention (hasn’t been viewed yet). And last but not least; visual support for tabs is not enabled even if you like to have your Tab Bar on the side (vertically).
Opera is now available in 38 languages including English and Hindi. Check out the changelog for the full list.
The Beta 3 is significantly more stable than beta 2. If you experienced unexplained crashes with beta 2 I would highly reccomend updating to beta 3. Opera Turbo has also been further optimised to improve browsing speeds on slow networks.

Once again Opera has decided to exclude Opera Unite from the official beta release. If you wish to play with Opera Unite then go ahead and download the Beta builds including Unite from the Opera Desktop Team Blog. Unix and Mac users should also head over to the Desktop Team Blog for download links.

Ya recently I have started using too frequently,as i use a slow Edge connection for Internet. Opera turbo really helps in opening sites with lots of images by compressing images and texts to a lower quality.I don’t want high quality ,am happy that opera connects me faster,don’t know when Opera will release an edition with plugin support.Have high expectations from opera.GOOD LUCK.
That is good news. My last version the beta2 i guess, crashed a lot.

I never experienced any crashes with beta 2 either, but hell, stabler the better I say!
I do hope unite becomes a part of the final release.
Its quite astounding to actually think about the opera feature list. It leaves all competition eating dust.
