Opera 12 Vs. Opera Next Functionality

  • Two step authentication is going to be universally accepted. I suppose I'm "slightly ahead" of the times. LOL

    I understand hesitation at giving out one's phone number so I'm not condemning anyone who chooses otherwise. We all need to find our own level of comfort.

  • I check my account config and I did not put my number.
    I second that, and it's easy to click "Ignore" while creating a new account and they ask for your number.

    I use Bing as my search engine. I've made a link to its portal and dragged it onto my QAB.
    There isn't even a need for that, just set Bing as default in the settings as it's one of the default search engines.

  • Added and Improved with Opera Next = tons. Speed Dial, big plus (with the ability to have folders). Discover and Stash, plus. Off-Road Mode, a plus. Increased Speed and performance, big plus. Better rending of sites, big plus. Greater accessibility of extensions, big plus.

    Lost = NOTHING. Opera 12.16 is still available for use, alongside Opera Next. It's the best of all worlds. While some of Opera 12's customization features are not in Opera next, many of them were enjoyed more by power users, than by the vast preponderance of users, and some of them will be replaced in Opera Next by extensions.

  • lem... I respect for trying to respond patiently and sincerely with funksoulbro, but bear in mind that he's simply trolling. That's all he ever does so my advice would be to ignore his comments.

  • Opera Next aka Chropera do have functionality???

  • Opera Next aka Chropera do have functionality???

    Yes.

  • Lost = Lots
    Improved = None
    Added = None that benefit the user, only Opera as a company (Stash)

    @funksoulbro: Seriously dude, grow up.
    Why do you keep bashing Opera again and again in every thread that you come across?
    Just stop it or use another browser and move along.

    This is the last warning. You'll get banned soon!

  • One feature disappered since Opera 15 Desktop: Missing Favicons/Icons in SpeedDials as Opera 12 and Opera 20 Android had.
    These icons were fetchs if HTML code contained:

    < link href="/apple-touch-icon.png" rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" type="image/png">
    < link href="/apple-touch-icon.png" rel="apple-touch-icon" type="image/png">
    < link href="/apple-touch-icon.png" rel="icon" type="image/png">
    < link href="/apple-touch-icon.png" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/png">
    < link href="/favicon.ico" rel="shortcut icon" type="image/x-icon">
    

    Or can this be enabled with opera://flags?

  • Oh we will move on, don't doubt that Christoph...
    I personally think that lame-ass browser doesn't even need any bashing since it says it all for itself for everyone who has their own opinion in conjunction with a bit of grey matter in their heads,
    just as this spammer-magnet excuse for a forum doesn't deserve any time to have spent on.

  • awzx, seriously, sre you a pseudonym for funksoulbro? I was hoping we could keep the thread on specific features, not the insult generalizations of Opera Next vis a vis Opera 12 that get everyone angry. Otherwise people will not want to put the time into serious answers, particularly if they get buried in threads where people start by trying to have a real communication, addressing the needs of the original poster, but then, the thread goes crazy.

    You're entitled to your opinion but that's all it is: an uninformed, biased opinion. Given the fact that even the forum doesn't suit you, why not just leave?

  • Thanks for your comments.

    I was really going to try Opera 22, but I can't change the search engines, I don't use Google anymore and Bing and Yahoo are just poor. I use DuckDuckGo and/or StartPage by Ixquick, if I can't get those as my default search engines this browser in not for me yet.

  • Herudae,

    You can!

    Download the Disconnect Search extension, now in the Opera extensions store.. DuckDuckGo is one of its five search engines. Select it, and you are good to go. You can choose to have Disconnect do the search from the main Opera search bar, and/or any website search bars -- such as Duck Duck Go. Once you select DuckDuckgo, it will do all of your searches, until you change to another engine. What happens with Disconnect though is that to make it even safer and more concealed, the Duck Duck Go searches run through the Disconnect site. None of your search queries can be traced to you.

    Here's an article about Disconnect Search.

    http://www.informationweek.com/mobile/mobile-applications/disconnect-search-google-in-private/d/d-id/1127885

    They have apparently since the article added DuckDuckGo as one of their five search engines.

    Cheers,

  • Herudae, you can change in the settings. You add Duckduckgo and choose it as the standard.
