Man, I'm actually torn between using Opera 10 and Chrome now. Both are incredibly fast at rendering. Choices!

It completes Acid3, but the animation was not exactly smooth.

It still fails to show Google Maps' right-click menu, even when JavaScript is set to allow scripts to receive right-clicks.

Hope they fix the horrid interface.

i do agree that the default interface is horrible compared to the previous one and it needs fixing.
