Opera aims for PPC Macs with second Carakan beta OperaWindows users have been enjoying a finalized version of Carakan and the significantly faster Opera 10.50 long enough for the browser to have upgraded to version 10.51. Mac users have found themselves without a stable update from Opera 10.10. The development process is still under way, and will be having a 2nd beta here soon.

Opera aims for PPC Macs with second Carakan beta Opera_10.52_beta_2_mac_1_610x472

Opera 10.52 beta 2 introduces relatively few new features.

  • The Carakan Javascript engine has received several performance tweaks, and many of the bugs that affected scrolling have been addressed.
  • Smooth scrolling is now enabled by default.
  • Most notably, Opera has decided to make the browser compatible with older Macs.

Unlike the previous beta, this version will work on legacy PowerPC machines. Both this beta and the first one worked on Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and later.

Multitouch trackpad gestures are supported in this beta, too. You can now take advantage of pinch-to-zoom, two-finger swipe to scroll, three-finger swipe to navigate your browser history, and one that Opera claims will make the browser window transparent. The full changelog for Opera 10.52 beta 2 can be read here.

Although the company hasn't explicitly stated this, it's clear that Opera hopes that getting a speedy and fully synchronizable browser onto phones plays a big part in reinvigorating interest in their desktop version, which was quickly surpassed by Google Chrome in browser market share.
