10.5 pre-alpha truly does deserve the title of pre-alpha. It's a bit of a rough browser and some of the features aren't incorporated yet into the Mac build such as HTML5 video (which is only in the Windows/Unix build). One thing I don't get about Opera is why the default theme is done in such a way that hovering over the toolbar buttons turns the button a light blue. I thought this would change with the move to Cocoa but evidently it didn't. Regardless, it looks like Opera is moving in the right direction with their browser and finally addressing some of my major concerns.

I have been using Firefox 3.6 like Van from the RC at least and I like it better than 3.5 for sure. Faster here both on the Java tests and seems nicer overall in normal use. I like it. It JS performance is a lot better than 3.5 but like Van said, it's still behind the WebKit engine in Chrome and Safari and the new Opera Alpha engine.
It really is night and day isn't it? Like I said, the Opera team is really putting some work into the browser part of Opera as opposed to focusing solely on extraneous browser features like Opera Turbo and Opera Unite. As for the Firefox, it is a marked improvement but one question I'm still left with is, despite noticeable improvements, how come (in my experience) WebKit based browsers (and now the Opera pre-alpha build) are considerably better with JS?
