Windows 7: 64-bit Opera, and out-of-process plug-ins. Alpha version out

64-bit Opera, and out-of-process plug-ins. Alpha version out

Quote:
Bringing the out-of-process plug-in architecture across to Windows and Mac also brings another advantage: the ability to run plug-ins compiled for Intel 32-bit architecture from within a 64-bit Opera process. And 64-bit Opera is the other delightful gift we're giving you at Opera Labs this Christmas!
64-bit Windows and Mac have been in the works for a while, but we didn't want to release them until we had a way of running all plug-ins that's completely transparent to the user: This is now possible with the out-of-process plug-in architecture, so here we are! The 64-bit versions of Opera offer performance improvements in some specific areas and allow Opera to have more freedom in allocating memory.

Since that is an alpha version, does it present any problems with the 32 bit Operra remaining installed at the same time?

The Alpha uses a different Profile and will not affect other versions of Opera

Yes, I've installed it. So far, so good. Can't see much of a difference in how it operates over the 32 bit version though.

YMMV, but it depends a lot on what is in your tank.

I've ran into one problem so far...while copying my Speed Dial bookmarks over to the new browser's Speed Dial, I've noticed that on some websites that they load a bit slow. One in particular (walmart.com) totally hangs without loading. When this happens, it says that it is looking up hostname plus-com. I am set to use the Google DNS, but I've not heard it called that before. In any case, the website loads normally on the older version.
