Opera has announced the release of its Beta 3 release of the Opera 10 browser. The company says this version is ready for "heavy work" on the web.

Opera has run over 10 million tests on the beta and has received plenty of feedback. They say performance and stability were prioritized in this version.

"For us, it is a resounding success when more than one million people use your beta and are excited enough to give us so much actionable feedback," says Opera CEO Jon von Tetzchner. "This third beta comes after a lot of careful improvements. We have never released such a solid piece of technology that not only runs seamlessly, but is so nice to look at as well. I am proud of this release, and I hope that the Web-using world will benefit from a browser that is truly ready to do some heavy lifting."

The release does not come with Opera Unite, the company’s recently announced inter-browser communication technology. That is still in alpha mode and will be released to beta in due time.

New features do include:

- Tab Tweaks
- User interface tweaks
- Multilingual
- Crash prevention
- More "turbo"

Opera Turbo is a compression tool used for faster surfing. The tool has been refined for increased speed when browsing with slower network connections.

Users wanted more tab options, and now they have them. Users can view visual thumbnail tabs on the right or left side of the screen, as well as on the top or bottom. The tabs are also resizable and the thumbnail view is optional. This version of Opera also contains 38 different languages.
