    For those using Operas Browser - Version 10 Beta 3 is available HERE.

    I still find this a useful browser - especially for a few of my family members/friends insisting on using dial-up in lieu of braodband internet access.

    Is there any reason to be cautious and wait for the full release?

    An RC usually is near-final code, so as long as you have at least one backup browser, I don't see why you need to wait. (Personally I like to give a browser a couple of bug fix releases before any major upgrades.)

    Not really, I've been using betas (and pre-release versions) for ages. Some have been a bit ropy, but the current version is good.

    If I install the release candidate now will I have to uninstall it to intsall the final version when it comes out on Tuesday?

    The release candidate installs as Opera so it installs over your previous installation. If you then install the final then it will install over that (in fact 10.0 has an updater built in that downloads in the background)

    I'll give it a go. What's the difference between the two alternative downloads for Windows called Windows MSI and Windows Classic?

    I think the difference is technical - MSI uses the Windows installer while Classic uses the Opera installer. I think there are different options in the install window.

    The Opera forums have rabid advocates of both versions, but I always use the MSI (not the CSI - that gets fingerprint dust on my monitor, and I hate that)
