Get ready for speed
How much faster is Opera 10.52 than other Mac browsers?
The tests were conducted on a MacBook 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2GB RAM under OSX 10.6.3 Snow Leopard. Note that results may vary significantly between different hardware specifications and software versions. We encourage running the tests yourself and please feel free to share the results you find.
In Peacekeeper, Opera 10.52 achieves an excellent score of 3,690 points. On Snow Leopard, Opera is faster than Safari, and beats all other browsers, excepting Chrome 5 beta. Note, however, that because Internet Explorer does not support it, Peacekeeper does not yet take HTML canvas tests into consideration - where Opera is a clear winner. Below is the Peacekeeper score with the complex graphics test taken into consideration.
With the canvas test factored into the results, Opera scores 4258 points, which extends its lead over the trailing browsers and nearly ties it with Chrome 5 beta.
Do you ever browse on a slow Internet connection?
As you can see, Opera 10.52 for Mac OS is a tremendous achievement, providing an extremely fast and feature-rich option for Web browsing on Macs. We are very proud of our accomplishments, and hope that you will try Opera for yourself to get what we feel is the best Web experience available today.
