    I've been running it since the first beta.
    No trouble at all, although there certainly must be bugs to fix. :D
    Now I'm using build 10433. :cool:

    -> Changelog and Opera Desktop Team. :)

    Mostly it's about fixing bugs and adding some new improvements.
    The user doesn't see those things, since most is done under the hood.

    I do experience that this version is faster than the current release. Also startup is quicker.
    Pages load quicker and the rendering engine has been improved once more.

    For me that's enough and BTW I'm not a registered beta-tester.
    Just playing with Opera betas as usual. :cool:

    Opera has been my favourite since the time I purchased it and will be for many years to come, if possible. :thumb:

    Not sure what's good in 9.6, but I'm currently using 9.52, and I'm very happy with it!

    I know, but no crashes, nor severe issues, nor data loss AFAIK.
    I do take my precautions when running alphas or betas. :D ;)

    Very nice, still slower than the others when my connection is slow though, and some problems with some websites. It's getting better, I think that when it gets to v 10 almost all the websites will work with it.

    Compatibility problems is the only thing that's keeping me from using Opera.

    Trust me........after surfing thousand of pages over the years, there are very few that have issues with Opera, the cons of using Opera outweighs it.

    I know that Opera renders *most* websites correctly, however, there are a few that are still not perfect. It's most likely the fault of the web developers since Opera is the most standard compliant browser. But, I do not like it when websites are not rendered correctly; it really irritates me a lot.

    True, Opera follows strict HTML code and therefore even at the cost of security it pays off for compatibility and therefore the issues with few web pages.
