I was running the 9.62 then onto the 9.63 later 10.01 along with the 10.10 Unite for Opera. The information on what Unite does can be looked over at Opera Unite It's now simply a server addon being seen there.

There are concerns being voiced, however... regards Unite and safety...

"Users installing Opera Unite, Opera's new web development platform, could at risk from being hijacked by cyber-criminals, according to security researchers..."

Although Opera v10.10 plugs a few minor bugs, I'm not absolutely sure there will not yet be security updates for it as it gets its real life rollout beyond the beta testing program which began in June or so this year.

The upgrade to the latest version also addressed a few bugs...

I rarely have any crashes using Firefox official builds but have all but switched to Opera 10.10 anyway as my daily browser. I still miss no-script though.

I don't use Unite, but the idea sounds great. Too bad the scum think so too

I don't generally use the Unite part of it either. But the 10.10 is also no longer in beta form there. Since Opera simply serves as a secondary browser here I looked at it for that purpose when having all of them lined up on the RCs for a cross comparison before deciding which would work best on the retail 7. The 9.63 had already topped over FF and certainly the Chrome browser that still looks like a hlaf finished beta version.

Arguments that extensions have been causing browser crashes may well be true, as they're also allegedly examining codes in these plugin modules to try and make their platform more reliable.
When I use FF 3.5.5, it tends to crash at times when I log out of some web sites. I think is one of them. There are 1 or two more that crashes FF when I log out of them.
