Opera 7.10 beta 1

A couple of days ago, Opera “released Opera 7.10 Beta 1”:http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&selm=oprm1vuvzcdf8jiz%40localhost. It is a newsgroup beta, so I’m not providing the direct download link. If you are to test it, I encourage you to report any problems you find in the opera.beta newsgroup.

I haven’t had time to test it extensively myself, but it seems that some of my pet bugs and annoyances have been fixed:
* Proper password and cookie managers.
* Columns can be resized in M2.
* Some rendering bugs fixed.
Then there’s also new features. One that I particularily enjoy is the new “Notes” panel, a form of web page annotation, where I can add small notes to pages, and have them act like bookmarks. Quite enjoyable. “Rewind” – acting, I believe much like in Safari, where one click will take me from where I am to where I started.
Another nice feature, though mainly for developers, is the page info panel, where information on the current URL is displayed:
* Charset sent from server
* MIME type
* Size of main page
* Number of inline elements
* Total size of inline elements
* Filename of page in cache
Furthermore: The preferences window has gotten a makeover, enabling new features, and some much-needed cleanup. It’s now possible to customize keyboard (and mouse) layouts from within Opera, instead of having to work with the ini-files directly. You can also switch between different sets of keyboard and mouse layouts while Opera is running, so you can adapt it to different uses when needed.
