Anybody tried it?

I've just been comparing the latest Opera with Chrome, so figure I'll download it and give it a whirl.

Hardware accelerated HTML5 amongst other things included now :D

Oh wow! So I installed it and the homepage is a non-n00b page, good stuff in my books.

Anyways, try doing this in your fav browser:
http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/01FlyingImages/Default.html

All were tested in Full-screen, 1680x1050

Chrome 4.1 gives approx 2 -> 4 FPS, jerky as hell :(
Firefox 3.5.3 gives 18 -> 24, but redraws them *horribly*
Opera 10.5 gets 30 -> 32, not *too* bad, but it "halts" and "shudders" at times ...
IE9 gives 64 -> 65, even when I hold down Shift for faster spinning!!

It's a shame Acid3 still fails miserably :p

Not yet, altho I dont think the vidcard supports HW Acc anyway. So, it'll probably be the same as any other browser when I go to sites

Pretty consistent 65-66fps, no matter what I do to it. Opera 10.10 64bit, on Gentoo Linux.

If it does, then the drivers dont support it. Since, the option is disabled

Which OS are you using? If I remember correctly, it uses a rendering API that's only present in Vista and above - so if you're running XP, then you won't have the option to use hardware acceleration.

Vista x64 now. May go back to Win 7 when MS decide to fix the bugs in it

Interesting - I have no idea then. My guess is the same as yours - drivers - but I don't know for sure.

May well be the drivers, I've just uninstalled them. Because theyre making shutdown, longer to shut down. And the setting is now enabled.

As you hold Shift, and if you move your mouse to the outside, it spins *super* fast...
