Some sites "seem" quicker loading... not sure if it's reality or psychological after reading the change logs :)

The only thing I can see, is they shortened the "display" time. Go to Preferences -> Advanced -> Browsing and the "loading" time seems to be changed. I always had mine set at "instantly", and v10 seems slower.

As that sentiment is pretty much the same as I read about 9.6, I'll save on the bandwidth and stick with 9.52

Probably important to stress that this is an alpha build, and apparently is geared towards rendering engine improvement only. This image probably is the best piece of info so far, regarding progress:
The kicker will be what comes out during the "Feature" phase.

Welcome to the 21st century! ;)
In case anyone at Opera is reading this: what I'd like to see most is the addition of RSS feeds to the sync function.

I saw a pie chart in .net magazine that shows Chrome has almost the same market share as Opera (around 0.7%). Yet Opera has been around for years and Chrome has only just been released. I like Opera but often wonder why they bother when it has such a poor share of the market.

Netapplication's market share statistics are wildly inaccurate as they seem to primarily focus on the US. For other markets, such as Russia, the statistics are different:
Then for Europe:
So as you can see, just judging the market share of Opera based on a single site that is predominately US-based is a bit premature.

The second link still shows Opera has only 4.24%.
The first link shows 20%, higher than Firefox 3. Also IE6 and 7 at 26% and 25%. That can't be right can it?
