Opera 10 pre beta
 
Opera 10 pre beta is out with a great looking new standard skin.

Great, thanks for the link!
I for one appreciate your efforts to keep the forum updated regarding Opera Browser's latest developments.

(Just to point out to any current Opera users - unlike the Opera 10 Alpha, it seems this installer wants to install to the default Opera location rather than create a separate installation folder so you may want to change this manually.)

Yes that's a good point actually because before you could run the existing 964 and the alpha 10 as separate installations.

I did flirt with Seamonkey for a while but now with this excellent new version of Opera I'm back in the fold! With most of todays malware originating from the Internet, PC security should always begin with the bowser backwards and with Opera you can accomplish this without dragging your system down with piles of extensions. That said, there's no denying the increased functionality of Firefox for those who must have bells as well as whistles.
Certainly I could not imagine my life without a fully integrated mail client which is one of the areas where Opera excels.

The only one thing I'm disappointed with now (help!) is that with the 964 and the alpha it was possible to edit the Dr. Web link scanner text into Opera's default menu directory. I've tried this with the pre beta and it's not working!

Any ideas anyone :confused:

These are precisely my reasons for choosing to use Opera -
it's secure, uncomplicated, and has an excellent integrated email client.

I do find the ability to customise Opera is also a useful feature and that's bad news that your Dr Web link mod doesn't work in the latest version - it's very handy!

For me, Opera is not an option. I have several hundred passwords saved in Roboform and I can't imagine living without it. Until Opera and Roboform "play nice", Opera just isn't an option for me. (Though, it is installed and I do use it occasionally.)

I could not live without Opera and have been using it since about 2001. I have tried others but always go back to Opera for it's speed (I only got off dialup 2 years ago) and for all the things you can change to suit without having to download extensions. I haven't yet found a site it won't work with. The best feature for me is that I am on an expensive satellite connection and very limited data transfer but I can easily get round with images turned off and just with a single click load images when I'm on a page I want to see the images or I can just right click and reload to get a single image.

I don't think I could ever bring myself to do my banking using IE ;)

Not unless you want to share your account with the rest of us! :D

Good point too about the images feature.

MC, do you still have this problem with Opera 10 or have you got it worked out?

It works for me with Opera 10 Beta :-
I just edited the appropriate file (standard_menu.ini which is now located in C:\Program Files\Opera 10 Beta\ui) as indicated on the Dr. Web website. Even though the file contains different code to that shown, I just went for the corresponding similar location in the new ini file and it worked!

Just thought I 'd better add a word of caution to those of you who are using Opera 9.x and want to install Opera 10 Beta alongside it.

DO NOT try to import your email accounts and messages into Opera 10 Beta or you may well lose the ability to view the bodies of all your emails, not only in Opera 10 Beta but also Opera 9.x ! Definately best to wait until this particular bug gets sorted!
