   I thought you clicked that to open the browser.

No, it always minimizes to my task bar and that's how I want it... no need for the tray icon I think.

... and the auto-update which I forgot to disable, suggested updating with the Windows installer, despite that I had a Classic installer version... of course it failed. Then I ran the classic installer to upgrade but it neglected that I have my user profile in Docs & Sets, not Program Files\Opera. Really not a smooth upgrade with the Classic installer. Seems like they want me to enable the Windows service DCOM Server Process Launcher (which I always have disabled).

Yes, tried 10.20 but it's really only Widgets and I don't use those (tried some but not found anything useful).
Now running 10.10, Unite and Webserver off and Unite folder deleted.

Very good news. I can't hardly wait to install the upcoming 10.5 pre alpha.

There are signs, read the replies at the Deskop Team blog, that 10.5 may use Presto 2.5 instead of the expected 2.4. May be also enhancements to the skin.....

All in all. Pretty exciting.... O0

It's a bit wobbly. Managed to get my Toolbar to run, but can't change the Skin without a crash.

Does seem to be fast, though.

Can't be bothered to do much setting up until it'll run a skin that doesn't take up so much space. Once that's OK, I'll start from scratch.

Oh yes, Classic version here:

It's amazing. So much new goodies I am stunned for the moment. Here is a favorable review from Betanews: http://www.betanews.com/article/The-once-and-future-king-Test-build-of-Opera-crushes-Chrome-on-Windows-7/1261519843/2 .

Opera is back in the performance arena and it is kicking the competitions bums..... O0

On my system, 10.10 scored about 1900 on Peacekeeper and 10.5 was about 2700; FF 3.5.5 was about 2100.

Found a skin that'll work and also edited the Standard skin.ini to shorten the tabs. Got an old Toolbar working so that most of the icons are there.

By Beta status it'll be worth starting from scratch ;D

Trying the latest 10.5 snapshot now, and so far so good - I've done several operations and still no crash. It's faster, I like this version. However, Gmail (mainly emoticons) seems to be just as slow as before. I'm seriously fed up with the Opera/Gmail issues. :(

By the way, seems like the spell checker doesn't work?

Great News!
But my Broadband Provider Recommends, FIREFOX for Faster browsing because the Network of my broadband that I'm using now is Designed to use Firefox. That's why if I were you, ASK your broadband provider if what Browser is designed for there network for you.

If I had to depend on my ISP to decide which I browser to use, I'd be picking another ISP ;D.

Each ISP provider uses different broadband Equipment Solutions, and each equipment has a preferred Browser that they designed to maximize there equipments performance to the limit for Internet experience BUT... for example, they Recommend FF for there Network to work Best, it doesn't mean that you cannot use another brands of Web Browser.. and for the record, OPERA is not recommended to use by the #1 Wireless Broadband Provider here in the Philippines. lastly, there are only a Few users of OPERA here. well for me OPERA or CHROME is Good BUT... I use the browser that more fit with my ISP.

Happy New Year!

When we released our pre-alpha version into the wild last week, we told you that a Unix release would follow later. Today, as a new year's present, we'd like to give you the chance to play with Opera 10.5 on Unix.

We also have a little extra for those of you on Windows and Unix: this build includes support for the video element!

Opera did not forget about us users.....   :o ;D O0 8)

Read more about what's hot and what's not at the blog.

Happy New Year from the Central European Timezone.... !ot!

Opera appoints Lars Boilesen new Chief Executive Officer:
Quote
Company co-founder Jon von Tetzchner assumes new role in Opera
Oslo, Norway, January 5, 2010

Opera Software today announced that Lars Boilesen (42) has been named the company's new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. He succeeds Jon S. von Tetzchner, who co-founded the company in 1995 and has served as Chief Executive Officer since that time. Jon von Tetzchner will continue to serve Opera full-time in a strategic and independent capacity.

"Lars Boilesen brings both a very significant industry experience and a deep understanding of Opera to the role as the company's Chief Executive Officer. In short, Opera's spirit runs through his veins," says Jon von Tetzchner. "My decision to assume a new role in Opera is based on a lengthy consideration process. As outgoing Chief Executive, I leave confident in the company's continued leadership in key markets, our strong management team, our ongoing commitment to innovation, and our robust financial foundation."

Boilesen is a recognized business leader with more than 20 years of international management and sales/marketing experience from companies such as Alcatel-Lucent, Tandberg Data, Lego and Opera Software. Boilesen previously worked for Opera from 2000 to 2005 as Executive Vice President, Sales. During the company's formative years, Boilesen played a crucial role in transforming Opera from a desktop browser vendor into a leader in cross-platform browsing. In 2005, Boilesen joined Alcatel-Lucent as CEO of the Nordics and the Baltics. Prior to re-joining Opera in January 2009 as Chief Commercial Officer, Boilesen served on Opera Software’s Board of Directors as Vice Chairman.

"I was very happy about convincing Lars to come back to Opera one year ago. Today, I am very excited about asking him to take over as CEO as we continue our growth and global expansion. We have worked closely together for many years and I am certain that he is the right person to lead Opera into a very bright future," said Jon von Tetzchner.

"I am impressed with what Opera has achieved under Jon’s leadership," says Lars Boilesen. "We provide browser technology not only to nearly 100 million consumers worldwide, but also to the major players in the industry: Vodafone, T-Mobile, Nintendo, KDDI, SKT, Nokia, Samsung, Toshiba and Sony Ericsson to name but a few. Our focus going forward is to execute on our current strategy and continue to deliver the best browser experience to the breadth of our customer and user base."
Lars Boilesen biography
