Opera 10 alpha looks promising

Opera have released the first alpha of the new version 10 of their flagship product, Opera (for the desktop). Major changes include:
  • Presto 2.2 engine
  • 30% improved performance (at least this is what Opera claim)
  • support for web fonts
  • increased CSS 3 compliance (including RGBA and HSLA)
  • developer tool Dragonfly has been improved
  • Acid 3 compliance
  • support for the W3C Selectors API
  • improved HTML5 support
Other things, less important to web developers, include inline spell checking and automatic updates.

For more information, check out the detailed change logs for Windows, Linux/UNIX and Mac OS X. Note that big parts of those documents overlap eachother.
