We've made the fastest browser in the world even faster with superior support for Web standards. Opera 9.5 is quicker to start, faster at loading Web pages and better at running your favorite Web applications.
New features [opera.com]
I also note there are improvements to the Feed Reader. that will make me a happy man.
I hate new dark tabs, draws attention away from any webpage your on. I also hate the dark, dreary, indistinguishable icons. Didn't Netscape pull something like that back in the day? I have used Opera on and off since 3.0. (stuck with it at 7) and this new interface ticks me off, thank goodness for skins.
One thing that still bothers me is that the feedreader requires me to set up a mail account. I don't want a mail account because I handle that in other ways, but i sure do use my RSS feeds. So I set up a bogus account and then set it not to poll the server automatically. Not so very intuitive.
Is that a new "feature"?
Safari (even on Vista) has always blown everyone else out of the water for speed.
I wonder how the new Opera compares?

For the speed aspect alone. I wish I could do a side by side demo of Opera vs FF on LinkedIn and Facebook. Opera 9.5 has to be atleast twice as fast at rendering than FF on js/ajax heavy sites like LI and FB.

Just put a "tile" and "cascade" button on your toolbar
Isn't there one by default?
Via VIEW \ TOOLBARS \ MAIN BAR I have always (since version 7 at least?) had:
Open ¦ Save ¦ Print ¦ Find ¦ Home ¦ Panels ¦ TILE ¦ CASCADE ¦ Voice ¦ Dev. Console ¦ Dom Snapshot
Anyway, off to do some speed checks.. :)

Web pages that use jQuery clueTip and hosted in IIS function differently in Opera. When a user clicks on or mouses over the jQuery clueTip link to display the content, Opera asks for a User Name and Password.
The same Web pages work fine in IE, Firefox and Safari. The content is displayed as it's supposed to do it.
I don't think it's a problem with my jQuery clueTip code.
Too long since I tried Opera, this thing feels half browser, half dev tool!
Today I doubled the RAM in my laptop and doubled my browser to! Who knew?
