I came from brave browser and i found myself pretty satisfied with it. But since the desktop version of opera provided me with the same features as brave, and some more neafty ones, i decided to switch. I'm quite happy for now, but I'm a bit disappointed by a few things and i hope that my feedback could help fix/improve the weak points.
Firstly I'm not sure why or how, but i feel like the loading of websites (not once you are inside one and browsing on it, just when you open a new one) is a bit slow compared to brave. I'm not so sure on chrome/edge/... But brave do open them faster. Not a deal breaker at all, but just a suggestion to check why it is like this.
Secondly, regarding the mobile app, I'm kinda disappointed. While in regards to the desktop programme i have zero thoughts of going back to any other browser, I have a big reserve on the mobile Android app. With brave i could open a sort of a folder with as many tabs as i wanted in it. I used it for browsing inside a website, for example when deciding what product to buy you could put all the tabs with the different options in a folder and differentiate them from the other tabs you currently have open that are maybe from other sites/searches. To me that is a must have! it's so versatile once you start to use it you can't live without!
I recently switched from Chrome to Opera, and I'm enjoying it. I ran into a slight issue earlier, though, and I thought I'd share it. I installed the AdBlock Plus extension for Opera (in addition to the built-in one) and for a while it was working fine. I watch youtube a lot so being able to block ads on that is important to me. At some point randomly, the ads stopped being fully blocked before videos, and, while the ad couldn't play, I'd still have to wait the full duration. I tried disabling AdBlock Plus and keeping the built in one on, but that caused the ad to just fully play normally. After a while, I did the same thing but restarted my browser after I made the change, and now the built-in one works perfectly by itself. It seems like the presence of the independent extension caused the built-in adblock to start doing nothing.
TL;DR: AdBlock Plus extension didn't fully work on YT and caused the built-in adblocker to stop functioning.
Hi. There are some key differences between iOS and Android devices. We can't neglect them and applications need to adapt somehow. One of those differences is the back navigation. On Android you always have access to application manager, home and back button. You can use that back button to navigate back in history - you don't need to reach 3 dots menu.
On iOS you have built in navigation gestures (swipe from left and right edge to go back and forward), but it's convenient for all users, thus we decided to put back navigation in the FAB menu. This however meant we had to remove Reload action.
If you don't like vibrations, open settings and turn them off (this is android specific feature).
