I wish that were true, but they dropped presto for Webkit and this is the first build of the abomination. Instead of fully featured browser in a neat multilanguage package of about 15 mb, we now have an useless Chrome shell without side bar, M2, RSS client, Bookmarks, keyboard and mouse shortcuts and well.. without anything resembling Opera.
Haven't tried it yet but I fear the loss of my short-cuts, one built in is /. taking you to slashdot.org;
I have many more that I've used for ages.
Hopefully this upgrade will allow Opera to play well with all of the sites now, I'm just used to
getting "you need a modern browser to continue". I use Opera as my main browser but have
a secondary FireFox for the pages Oprea won't open or when I want to play Battlefield 3,
which is daily
Somewhere around version around 3.62 or so is when I started using Opera. That browser on a floppy
was one sweet deal, taking all my bookmarks with me as I visited was just handy.
I've been collecting my bookmarks since that time as well, nothing else imports them,
some have tried but but it doesn't work out for me. I'm sure this newest update will
let me keep them and hopefully creating a new bookmark folder won't take very many tries now;
actually creating one was mostly a matter of luck for me.
Opera has always had the latest and greatest features, I hope it isn't "improved" to where
I don't care for it as that would just suck.
The above sound rambling? Probably because I am afraid of what's become of Opera.
