old 12 features compared to latest release

  • I was wondering if anyone could tell me what is missing from the latest release to the old 12 release. There are many things in the old 12 version that I have come to love and would hate to lose them. One the download manager and two the ability to highlight text and open it a new tab or current tab, etc. How the tabs stack. The overall feel of the old one compared to this latest one. thanks for any help

  • download manager

    Opera 33's manager is pretty basic.

    highlight text and open it a new tab or current tab

    Opera 33 does this but in a different way then Opera 12. You can also highlight text and send it to any search engine in Opera.

    How the tabs stack

    No major browser with the exception of Firefox has tab stacking. In fact, so few people use it in Firefox that its going away too. Opera dropped it a few years ago and its not coming back.

  • thanks, I just recently over the last year started using it and I liked Opera's way much better for the tab stacking.
    I only use basic parts I guess to the download manager. Curious how Opera 33 does the highlighted text different?

    I guess I can load it here and test it out at some point
