So, as you know, the beta release is scheduled for September 15th. Previously, the screenshots of the interface flowed, but they were similar to IE 8, or nothing at all.
Now, zabugornye online publications put on the ears of the screenshots of IE 9. In general, there is something.

Now that we are promised:
1. Support HTML5, CSS3, etc.

4. Fixed sites.
A feature that allows you to create a kind of express panel on the Windows taskbar. That is, to fix the links in the browser icon. I don’t know why this is stated as a mega-franchise, but I have an express panel in the taskbar on the Opera even in the winter builds of version 10.50, if not earlier.

In general, all the technical quirks of the browser have already been disassembled along and across in the technical thumbnails, it remains to understand how comfortable the GUI will be, and how performance will change with the appearance of
I also want to curse the engineers of the Redmond giant that they cannot start their Ferrari under Windows XP. Ugliness. What does the same Opera do that can launch your browser even under Windows 98?
