Fast and nice. I got this first thing yesterday morning. I forgot to post it. But it is much better than the alphas and wow. I am using this as my primary Browser. Plus they are trying to meet the requirements of some sites to they show correctly, which to me is a bad thing. But at least now people can stop complainaing that sites dont load right with Opera. Even though Opera is the only browser that passes eh Acid2 test and that is how sites should be coded to look. :wink:

Same here :smile:

I just noticed something: SpeedDial now fully renders JavaScript. In the past, if I added a my GMail page to SpeedDial, I'd just see the blank white screen with the "please wait" text on it. But now it actually loads the page w/ full JavaScript so I can see my actual inbox.

No biggie, but still nice :grinning:
