Opera 10.5 for Windows Released


Opera Software today announced the release of Opera 10.5 for Windows (s msft), less than a month after making the beta available. The big change in this release is improved performance. Opera claims that 10.5 is the fastest browser available, a claim backed by my benchmark tests of the beta.

The Mac version (s aapl), meanwhile, is still in beta. I hope it makes full release soon, as its speed, coupled with Opera’s impressive feature set, could see it replacing Chrome (s goog) as my primary work browser.

Have you been using Opera 10.5? Let us know what you think of the new browser below.



I have been using the beta version for Mac for a few days now and I find it MUCH more stable than the previous version. And yes, it is fast. But I have always loved Opera since I started using it many years ago.

Just the last version for Mac annoyed me very much because it crashed several times in each session. Even made me switch to Firefox. But now, with the new version I am back and loving it.
