Opera 10.51 UNIX packages (.deb, .rpm & .tar)

Opera Logo

The Opera development team has released Opera 10.51 UNIX packages; .deb, .rpm & .tar, but do Linux fans really need it, I say no. Opera 10.50 for Windows Final is already out there, Opera 10.50 for Mac is now a Beta – Opera 10.50 for Unix/Linux is still an Alpha, so Unix/Linux users have two alphas, Opera 10.50 and Opera 10.51. Where the hell are we going with all these alphas, it makes no sense. We need a working Beta of Opera 10.50 for a start, not another buggy alpha. By the way Opera 10.51 for Windows FINAL is out out.
