Opera on Tuesday released version 10.5 of its Web browser, claiming it's the fastest browser available for the Windows operating system. Opera 10.5 includes a new design and private browsing options, and arrives just in time for the arrival of the controversial browser ballot screen in Europe.

"Opera 10.50 is the fastest browser in almost all speed tests," claims Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software. Opera 10.5 uses a new JavaScript engine called Carakan and a new graphics library called Vega, which Opera says make this the fastest browser ever produced for Windows. Google Chrome also makes a similar claim -- so further tests will have to decide that.

Opera 10.5 arrives as Microsoft rolls out a new browser ballot screen on Tuesday to over 200 million Europeans. The ballot screen is supposed to make it easier for Internet Explorer users in Europe to switch browsers. Opera currently has a 1.78 percent share of the worldwide browser market, far less than Microsoft's IE commands.  [More...] [Comments...]
