Have been running the Opera 10 Beta for a while on my Fuze (Touch Pro), and am mostly happy with it: really like the interface / menu structure, and it seems to load quickly enough (although often pauses before fully rendering a page).

Don't know if am on Beta 2 or 3 - it simply says "Beta!" - but last download was probably on or about Feb 14/15.

One thing I definitely MISS is the ability to use the Fuze's Scroll Wheel to access the Zoom control: Opera 10's Zoom is easy enough to implement / remove, but preferred the "infinitely variable" option available through the Scroll Wheel.

It also often seems that Opera 10 is too quick to change orientation from Portrait to Landscape - and then TOO SLOW to change back again.

Hopefully the final release will clean up this (relatively) minor glitches....

Pretty nice. I like the start page ("Speed Dial") -- panel of large "button" (3x3) for your most used favorites.

I don't see any way to import bookmarks; hope that is on their future feature list.

Worth a try.
