    Quick question:

    Does anyone know how to Ctrl-Tab between tabs in the order they are listed on the tab bar, AND without showing tab thumbnails?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can't answer your question, but I scroll through the tabs by holding the right mouse button down, and using the scroll wheel.

    Might find it quicker than ctrl+tab.

    Opera 10.62 Release Candidate is now available.:D

    http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/2010/09/03/10-62-release-candidate *puppy*

    It is about time for an update to our stable branch and hence we have a nice new 10.62 build for you.

    Since this is a release candidate please let us know if you see any regressions since 10.61 and remember fixes to 10.70 that are missing are not regressions

    Note: These packages have the old non-unified build numbers. However, 10.70 and above will continue to have unified build numbers. Also because this is the 10.6x line we still have PowerPC.

    Here is the 2nd 10.62 Release Candidate. Just a few small tweaks to get 10.62 ready for final. Let Opera know if you see any regressions since 10.61. For those wondering about 10.70, we will try to get an interesting new build out to you soon.

    A recommended stability and security update.

    Opera closing when searching on hotels.com
    Not being able to click or select links or text
    Opera freezing when leaving a canvas, audio, or JavaScript game
    A missing plug-in dialog might cause Opera to close
    Bodyless documents causing Opera to close in accessibility mode

    Security Fix :
    Fixed an issue where malicious DLL files could be unintentionally loaded and allowed to run arbitrary code; see advisory on Opera website.

    Opera 10.6X (not sure which was the first) seems to include a new geolocation feature, which is used to broadcast the user location to the public. I can't find anything in the menus to check on this feature, but it was included in the changelog.

    I'm guessing that this feature is enabled by default, given the way other Opera feature are always switched on when introduced. Could someone tell me how to disable it? Thanks.

    I find it funny that the only kind of benchmarks ever linked in this thread are speed, nothing about standards compliance, features, etc.

    I also find it funny that Chrome 7 hands down destroys Opera 10.70 in peacekeeper from my laptops to my desktops.

    My my third and final poke-me-silly is how Peacekeeper can find a GPU accelerated browser slower than a standard basic CPU one (firefox/ie vs chrome/opera). Everyone who has experienced a GPU powered browser will tell you from their own EXPERIENCE that it is faster. Conclusion? Peacekeeper is a load of rubbish, and obviously isn't in anyway a good real-world benchmark. ;)

    For Peacekeeper, the score from the "Graphics" category is not factored in the final result.

    I'm aware of that, but take a look at how IE9 scores lower in the graphics category than say Chrome or Opera.

    Also, every element of IE9 is GPU accelerated, not just the "graphics" (so to say) like Firefox.

    Well in my nvidia GTX400 workstation, Opera rips the pants off Chrome 7., just because your favorite browser loses consistently in a popular benchmark don't make the benchmark rubbish, maybe if Chrome won, you would be singing a different tune here.

    .......

    Chrome does win, read my post again. Also, Opera has no hardware acceleration, so singing and dancing your graphics card at me is moot.

    Why am I bothering replying?? I knew you'd reply with something stupid like that instead of something valid *sigh* gone are the days that I use Opera again.

    This is another case of "I've made my mind, please don't confuse me with the facts":p

    As an Opera user, I feel somewhat complimented when such jealous people come to this thread and posted zealous remarks about how their other browser(s) beat Opera, etc. like some "sour grapes syndrome".:ouch:

    Yes, why even bother to rebut or reply to them:ninja:

    Me too, had enough of this load of rubbish.

    Someone stated in an earlier thread a month or two ago that they'd stop using a product because of fanboys, I couldn't understand why this would be a genuine reason, well now I do, and I apologize to that person for doubting them. But I do find it funny that someone could call me jealous, Mr Browser switcher, who switches between browsers like underwear, and once used to like Opera...

    nanana1 & linuxforall, enjoy your thread.
