  • 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.

  • @sidneyleto,

    He wants DuckDuckGo as a default. He can add DuckDuckGo to Opera if he chooses by going to the DuckDuckGo website, and right clicking on the seach bar there, but it will not become one of the Opera default search engines. There are only five permissible default Search engines in opera. even if it is not one of the five Opera default search engines, he can use DuckDuckGo from the main Opera address bar by typing "d" before his search query. It's not a big deal to just type one letter, i.e.,d before the query. If he's willing to do that on every search (type that one letter) then he doesn't need the Disconnect Search extension.

    Bt if he doesn't want to do that, he can go the Disconnect Search route, which makes use of any of the search engines safer (google, bing, etc.). All you have to do is to select the search you want to use in Disconnect Search, and it becomes the de facto default till you change the selection. So you would not have to type the d.

    In any event, it is extremely easy for Herudae to use DuckDuckGo in Opera, whether through, adding the duckDuckGo search to Opera, and typing one letter, d, before every search, or getting The Disconnect Search extension.

  • Opera Next aka Chropera do have functionality???

    Sorta. I think the worst of complaints could be quenched by just doing a few things differently. Like importing bookmarks to a speed dial folder called bookmarks, and adding a memo "please organize it".
    Then again: The way tabbing works might be lost forever.

  • I notice when I type responses on this forum, the font is really small as I am writing my comment. Is there any way to change the font and/or font size as in Opera 12?

    I notice when I reply in a different PHPBB forum, the font is much larger in the compose box. Any comments?

  • Are you typing from desktop, a laptop, a tablet?. When I type from my Ipad, with Coast, the font-print is fine, but with Puffin it'svery small. So it may vary browser to browser. If you are using desktop Opera, just enlarge the view (press 0) if you have advanced shortcuts set up, or I think it's control shift plus.

  • I am typing from a 12.5" laptop (1366 x 768 resolution), so yes, I am using Desktop Opera.
