A word from a sponsor:
To my amazement, the new Opera 10 required even more than that: nearly 24 seconds.
Now, for reasons only known to me, I performed that test before I switched Opera's Appearance Skin from Opera Standard to Windows Native (yes, I run a MS Windows XP Home edition on a rather fast desktop computer). After switching, something compelled me to run the test again... just to make sure I hadn't miscounted.
Lo and behold: it took the application 8 seconds again.
This might only be the case, due to my application echoing intermediate results back to the screen. However, that doesn't strike me as particularly far-fetched.
I know some competitors who are going to love sneering at this...
Edited to add: this problem seems either solved or reduced to imperception using Opera 10.5 pre-alpha.
