Last Thursday, Opera released a public beta of the next major release of the Opera browser, and declared it as the fastest browser on earth.
Jump List options include Speed Dial pages and a link to open a new tab and new private tab.
The main menu bar has been compressed into the Opera button on the corner.
Unlike other browsers, Opera introduces both Private Tab and Private Window.
Opera also supports the audio and video HTML 5 tags. Similar to Firefox 3.5, it supports Ogg Vorbis open standards.
As you can see from the results, Opera 10.50 scored the best on the benchmark. I ran the test multiple times, and Opera was always the fastest of them all. Let’s remove the slower 3 and see a chart comparing just Opera and Chrome.
Google Chrome currently has the title for being the fastest browser on earth. But has Opera come to steal that title away? After all, the current beta of Opera is tested to be faster than the current beta of Chrome.
Want to give Opera 10.50 a try for yourself? Please keep in mind that this is beta software and there may be bugs, though the Windows version was surprisingly stable during my testing.
