It sounds like Old Opera's "panel" option. ("Old Opera" being version 12.16 or earlier.) Opera 18 does not contain that feature, so you would need to re-install 12.16 (or whatever Old Opera version) to get it back. In Old Opera, you can make it appear via Shift+F12 > Panels > check the boxes in the upper section for which ones you want to show up on the panel > select where you want the panel to appear from the "Panel Placement" box > OK.
So that Panal option is gone in the new opera ver.
Let me just say that So Unfortunate Constantly Krippling Situation look like opera is being made for the simple minded with the erasing of really good features like the panels.
And tell me... if we weren't here, would anything of substance be accomplished? Not a single, solitary thing. You would simply be crying in one another's beer for months on end. If it hasn't clued with you yet, it's now been over a year since the new direction. Presto is over and done with in spite of all the complaints and threats to abandon Opera. Bear in mind that the forums were set up to h-e-l-p posters resolve issues with their Opera suite. Complaining about missing features from a browser still under development does not fit into that stated purpose. Why, oh why, does that exceedingly simple fact escape people like you? Instead all you and your group can do is turn to personal attacks. And to what end? What changes has that strategy brought about in the Opera browser? So you malign me. Obviously I'm a paid shill to try and smooth troubled waters. Ha. If they're paying me to smooth over the complaints, I'm getting paid far too much since I've not been able to silence anyone during these many months. Your suggestions that I'm a paid shill are as ludicrous as your attempts to bring about change. It's not going to happen so deal with it.
You should never make assumptions, Mr.Cee. If I had decided that he was those things, I would have stated such. But I refrained from that, correct? So don't presume to put words in my mouth and build yet another strawman you can knock down.
Not so sure that it's all spin. "New" (or even "new and improved", for that matter) does not always mean "improved" (Opera Blink, anyone?), but
when it comes to Microsoft and security technology, "newer" does generally translate to "better".
Here's one (Microsoft) AL/SRP comparison that indicates that AppLocker has some advantages:
