Opera 10.60 Alpha 1 released

Opera Software has released the first alpha edition of their next browser edition.

Opera 10.60 Alpha 1 is now available as a free download on all the three major platforms.


Our Core team never rests, and we have noticeably increased Opera’s performance once again. You should see performance improvements for both JavaScript, DOM and CSS.

In addition to the visual tweaks you have seen already, such as the Speed Dial facelift, we have also been making further UI enhancements. You will notice that the O menu button now says “Menu” for easy discovery, and instead of hard to read thumbnails for internal tabs, we have replaced them with icons. The tab hover previews have also received a facelift.

Following the major rewrite of the Opera Framework for 10.50, which replaced Carbon with Cocoa, we have gone back and removed as much Carbon code as possible. The few things that are left are loaded dynamically, which should improve performance.

For Unix users, this obviously means that there will be no 10.5x version. However, we are aiming for synchronizing the 10.60 release across all platforms, and Unix will benefit from all the improvements since 10.5x.
