  • I can't find setting for page encoding in Opera 42.
    In previous version, it is in page sub menu.

  • I'm waiting for answer.

  • It seems to be gone.

    I also don't see it on Chrome and Vivaldi so probably it was removed from Chromium.


    This is a part of the effort Project Eraser.

  • Makes me cry 😞 Being dev myself, I know that often we can't even fix some bugs - there are users, who rely on them; not talking about removing crucial features.

    Yes, I haven't encountered wrongly encoded pages very often (last one was about week ago) - but need to fire IE or Fx to see their content correctly makes no sense to me.

    Let me qoute one (IMO idiotic) reasoning from linked thread: " ... a lot of these pages where the encoding menu is being used are "old-school" desktop websites, they wouldn't rank very high on mobile search or even be a plausible hit for a mobile user story."

    Opera devs, can't you have a bit higher reponsibility than just helping to kill "would not rank very high on mobile search" pages?

  • I have to agree with donq here though in the latest Opera versions I have been able to force pages that display incorrectly to display correctly by immediately forcing a refresh when the page finishes loading.
    Must trip a "Try a different encoding" flag?
