back to article Mac fanbois finally get Carakan of love with Opera 10.52

Norwegian browser maker Opera Software released a completed version of Opera 10.52 for the Apple Mac today. The company had previously been beavering away at taking Opera 10.50 for Windows from pre-alpha to a final version in about 10 weeks, by releasing the browser just one day after Microsoft rolled out its Windows browser …

and VERY good it is too.

Passes more CSS3 tests than any other Mac browser, completes ACID3 100% faster than Safari and Chrome(click the A for the times), beats FF/Chrome/Safari for performance on Sunspider and Peacekeeper and Sputnik beats everything on javascript compliance...

I'm loving OperaLink, as it keeps all my stuff like Notes, Speed Dial and Bookmarks sync'd with Opera on the phone...

100% faster?

I can 100% promise you that's not true.

"100% completion, faster than any other browser"

What confused you was the tautology in "completes ACID3 100%". Remove "100%" and the sentence is less ambiguous.

WTF?

Re: what the hell is a...

I'm rather more interested in what a "Futhark" is.

That was the one that derailed my train of thought while reading the article......

Opera for Mac may be the best browser

I've been using Opera for Mac since RC1 of v10.5x...and it's really fast -- with great features not found elsewhere. To mention one of 100 features, I love using the integrated Fast-Forward button to quickly go to the next page of news or blog articles without ever hunting for the NEXT PAGE link, ever again.

As @MarkOne mentioned, having my Speed Dial settings and bookmarks and custom searches sync'd over-the-air to Opera Mini 5 on my iPhone is also really powerful, also.

If you haven't tried Opera lately, check it out; it changes browsing on your computer or phone, I think.

erm

You've obviously never tried to write vaguely complicated web apps for opera then.

Opera market share <2% ... IE 6 Market Share 20%

Both about as painful to code for.

Re: erm

Surely, if your "vaguely complicated web apps" were standards compliant, Opera would have no problem...

(or maybe they're just too bleeding-edge for their own good - look boss, shiny!!)

Speaking as a 60 yr old fan man, I don't mind keeping the fanboi tag for people who defend apple mindlessly or sleep in the cold outside apple centres to be first with the latest toy.

But applied to mac users at large - i e the elect - it is getting old indeed

"FanBois", is lazy and insulting

>> Its starting to get old, a little like M$.

"FanBois" is beyond old. I can understand a publication wanting to take pot shots at commercial entities -- Apple, Microsoft, have at it I say. I don't care. It's the constant insulting of the readership that pisses me off.

I've been a visiting for more years than I care to remember, but I've just about had enough. With the low attitude of the editorial staff, they wouldn't give a toss if we all left.

Quick! Someone call a Waaaambulance!

I use Linux , and have no objection to us penguin-botherers being called freetards. Mainly because I am not a freetard. If you community has a highly visible lunatic fringe don't complain when people identify you with the lunatic fringe, complain about the lunatic fringe and maybe try to improve the image of your community.

As you are clearly a fanboi, and thereby constitute less than a couple of percent of the net public, and hella lot less of the tech-savvy net public (why would anyone not mesmerised by the magical - revolutionary shiny drink the iKOOLAID?), then you are prolly correct your passing would not be noticed :-)

Mine just updated itself

First impressions are very positive, however, I don't recall switching on any "Auto-Update" feature. I like to choose what I install/update, so that's a black mark I'm afraid.

Opposite for me...

Running 10.10 on 10.5.8, I chose "Check for Updates..." from the Opera menu only to be told that I was fully up to date! A trip to Opera's website soon fixed that though...

@Neil Greatorex

I suspect when doing a previous update, you didn't untick the box that says something along the lines of 'update automatically without bothering me'.

10.52 at last The Register site is working again

Endless loading time, not working buttons have now disappeared on this site. 10.50 was probably released a little early.
