Opera Software has released the first alpha of its Opera 10 browser, the first public release to pass the Acid 3 test. The release marks the debut of version 2.2 of Opera's Presto rendering engine.

New and notable:

  • Up to 30% faster page rendering than previous releases.
  • Support for the web fonts CSS 3 module.
  • RGBA and HSLA opacity, e.g. background-color: rgba(255,0,0,0.5) or background-color: hsla(240, 100%, 50%, 0.5).
  • Support for the Selectors API.
  • Improved support for SVG, including frames-per-second on animations and ability to use SVG web fonts.
  • Improvements to the Opera Dragonfly set of developer tools, including the addition of a network tab (a la Firebug) and live DOM editing (nice!).
  • Built-in browser inline spell checking and auto-updates.
