Opera 10.50 Beta Brings Quicker JavaScript And Much More

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The folks at Opera might have had to use several time working around restrictions to port their browser to the iPhone, but when it comes to the desktop there are no such issues to contend with. Hence the let go of Opera 10.50 beta, a sneak peek at the newest version of the company’s respected browser.
Opera 10 hit primetime back in September of last year after a similar beta process, so it seems sensible that we’ll see a release version of 10.50 in the next not many months. But what you’ll actually be wondering is what precisely this new revision has to offer over its rather impressive predecessor?
Tops amid the list are a brand new JavaScript engine dubbed “Carakan” that Opera claims runs eight times earlier than Opera 10’s. Also under the hood is improved fulfillment for Web standards like HTML5 and CSS 3 and a fresh “Vega” high-performance graphics library.
There are as well a handful of Mac-specific tweaks, thanks to Opera’s underlying Cocoa framework, as well as a unified toolbar, native UI widgets, Growl support, and multi-touch gestures on well-matched MacBooks and MacBook Pros. And the fresh Opera Widgets platform seems similar to an answer to Firefox and Chrome’s extensions frameworks, allowing developers to make widgets that run as divide processes and can still exist outside the Web browser.
Up front, Opera 10.50 sports a number of fresh end-user features such as simply customizable search engines, a extra intelligent address field that has search ability and the capability to delete pages from your history, private browsing by window or tab, better find-on-page capability, and dialog boxes that are displayed as page overlays, allowing you to switch among pages or windows without having to upset your browsing.
Opera 10.50 beta 1 is a free of charge download; it requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later operation on an Intel-based Mac. The company promises extra improvements to the beta are forthcoming.

    Can I use Opera10 on Windows XP? Because you have written “It requires MAC OS X 10.4”
