Yeah, I just probably going back to a browser that's not broken, like Safari. Has anyone actually asked Opera support? Surely they have to know about this though, right? Just not a priority?
Hi, found a bug in Opera GX that makes the browser close and re-launch. The steps to reproduce it is simple:
Open a private window
Go to a web page that you can download something
Open dev tools, not in docked mode but in separated window mode
Start downloading something, and before it finishes, you must click on the close button of the private window.
The normal behavior should be displayed a warning about the non-finished download, and if the user click "yes", then the window closes, but what is happening is that it closes before you even interact with the dialog.
I've tested it with docked dev tools, and it didn't happen.
BTW, this bug is also present in the standard Opera.
OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 - Version 1903 - Build 18362.295
Opera GX version: LVL1 (core: 63.0.3368.55362)
Opera version: 63.0.3368.94
A couple of questions. Opera looks and behaves quite nicely. Until now, I used Chrome on Windows, but I hate how it's counterpart on Android leaves ads. It says the ads should be unobtrusive, but my experience is not so. On the other hand, I read a good review about Opera on android. Now, I like my browsers to sync, + another review I read says Opera Flow is basically the best onehanded browsing option.
But, on the other side, I'm a heavy Google product user. Is it too much of a hassle to have a browsing sync through another account and not Google or how does it work in your experience? How does Opera work in that regard with Google docs for example?
And considering it's somewhat smaller user base - is Opera secure? Is Opera sync secure?
And last - I read it's based on Chromium - so basically just redesigned Chrome, or is only the engine the same and everything else "original"?
As for the Chinese ownership, it's not ideal, bu even my HP laptop is made in China, so that's that.
But also the userbase - how big is it actually and how safe and long-lived will Opera be?
I don't make a habit out of changing browsers, so sorry for asking for first hand experience in advance! Thanks!
