Opera 10's first release candidate has arrived, with the final version likely to have a 1 September release date.

The latest iteration of Opera features a new design and more industry standards than you can shake an HTML 5.0 stick at.

As well as Opera Turbo – to keep things flying along even on a bad connection, the built in Opera Mail, Opera speed dial and tabbed browsing are all likely to win praise.

September arrival
