Hi @sgunhouse , thanks for the reply.
You can check the source of information (Overview in this case) by clicking on i button. I would really appreciate if you could specifically point out the changes required so as to better reflect Opera. You may also open a PR by editing this file.
@neil-h I got the stand alone version, but even though the box (import from default browser) was unchecked it came up with the extensions and settings from the previous install. I thought I was careful. Tomorrow.
Is it just me or has Opera decided to implement a peculiar 'workaround' to bully its users with interrupted network errors now?
In the current version 67..., I get slightly fewer «interrupted: network error» problems (still around 10%, though), but downloads are now even slower than they were before, beginning at between 50-100 kB/sec and then gradually declining to 20 or even 10 kB/sec. On larger files, this is devastating.
Furthermore, despite having the flag for parallel downloads enabled, the stupid software slows down one file to 0 kB/sec, 'speeds up' the second download to 20/50/100 kB/sec for a few seconds and then does it the other way round, i.e. increasing the speed on the first file why the second one is briefly 'parked' at 0 kB/sec. This idiotic behaviour of increasing and decreasing speeds between the files that are being downloaded results in endless waiting times until a file has finally finished downloading, unless the dreaded interrupted network error gets the better of it during the endless process of downloading.
Firefox, TOR, Vivaldi and a bunch of other browsers do not do this, not even natively with their own means. It goes without saying that there are tons of download managers out there that handle the basic functionality of file downloads more intelligently, too, so what gives? Can the basic functionality of file downloads not be implemented in a half-decent manner?
@LarryH The version in Opera Addons is much older, from 22 Apr 2015.
Could you contact the author with https://flareget.com/support and ask for an update?
I will remove the extension for now and ask the developer for an update by email.
Still no spell check, and I wrote in Spanish "en este mundo triador de problemas nadie escapa..." "in this treacherous world, no one escapes problems" none of which should have escaped the default dictionary.
I am really "annoyed off" at this situation!
