Yeah, and that's an issue on its own because it's basically a downgrade.
I guess some manager who had nothing to do just had to come up with "something" to justify him still being employed.
Cannot agree more.
I personally would also like to have option to hide "Start page" and "Snapshot" icons/buttons (and maybe even make validated certificate issuer name shorter, tooltip could be used) - I'd rather see full url than some never used buttons.
And no, I don't want to buy wider monitor
Interesting alternative, however I agree that the sidebar should have never been removed from the speed dial. Its infuriating that Opera forces users to always have a sidebar that is completely useless while web browsing, but remove it in the one place that makes sense.
I would also go as far as to advocate that turning on the sidebar after every update regardless of settings is not serviceable. I cannot count the amount of service calls I get about turning it off on the countless machines i've deployed Opera to.
