Opera or GoogleChrome

  • Really i like opera - design, easy to use etc....but it has one problem for me, as well i have chrome...
    Example: sometimes we do format c:\ drive ..Everything what i have in opera(links,saves,favorite) removes and disappears, but in chrome i can find out because as you know account saved all history...
    It's not critics !!! I would like to see Opera like chrome - to save all important web pages for me even i reinstall system , really i don't want to use chrome... I hope opera personality will start to work on it !
    Highly appreciate it !
    Take care
    Have a nice one

  • How i see to solve of this problem..
    People can open opera account and start to use browser.
    browser - saved all history - favorite web pages etc ()
    it would be very useful, and whatever happens with your pc/laptop - you can make sure important sites in your account would be saved!

  • The solution to your problem is to just use Chrome. There's no good reason to use Chropera over Chrome.

  • Opera Link will work with New Opera, it is just a matter of time. If you want to watch videos on YouTube without problems, choose Opera.

    Old Opera was with all its features or it was added?

  • "it is just a matter of time"

    How many times can that excuse be rolled out? What meaningful features have been added to Chropera since version 15 came out a year ago? Not a thing!

  • I will ask again: Old Opera was born with all its features? You, funksoulbro, are only saying that the new Opera sucks. Do you know how hard should be to be a developer? Do you think it is easy to developer a new browser from zero? May I ask you why are you here if you hate Opera?

  • Because Link has to work with a variety of Opera browsers on different platforms running different OSs "seamlessly" and with no hiccups (because it's over-writing data on the connected devices), it's no small matter to make sure it and the associated Opera server software works without flaw. It will come when it's ready, and not before.

    @funksoulbro, what meaningful (helpful) posts have you added to the Opera forums since your arrival two years ago? All I've seen are complaints and sarcasm, interjected into nearly every thread in which you post.

  • I guess I would just ask why Google gives away its browser? How does it make money from your use of Chrome? The answers to those questions are why I wouldn't touch Chrome with a 10 foot pole. Now, I'm not 100% trusting of Opera (since it uses the Chrome engine), but when compared to MS IE, Mozilla, and Chrome, it seems the least invasive of the bunch.

    Absolutely none. That is why we must report his posts for the good of the community. All he does is try and stir up trouble and provide false information. Several users have asked honest, sincere questions only to have him tell them the latest version of Opera is v.12.16 which is emphatically false.

    I agree with your assessment. Opera is the least invasive and were that the only reason to recommend it, I would use it.

    Actually Opera and Chrome share the same engine, Blink is used on Chromium which both use.

  • shamil 44, if you go to About Opera in the Menu area, and click on it, you have the location in Opera 20 of the user Profile. Just save a backup of that to a flash drive, zip drive, whatever, and then if you format the c drive of the computer, no problem, Opera would be ready for re-installation with all of the critical stuff saved in the profile.. Yes, I suppose saving everything to the cloud via synch is easier, but this is not hard.

    Now in the Settings Help menu for Opera 20 under Migrate your Data, we see the following: "We're working to improve synchronization and make it more integrated with our next generation of browsers. Any data you have synchronized in Opera 12 is still available on the Opera Link web interface."

    So it's coming! Short term, saving the profile before a format of the c:drive, or shifting to a new computer is still the answer. Longer term, it will be easier, similar to what I understand to be the case with Chrome.

    I don't get it... are you trying to imply that Chropera is being built from zero? Are you insane or something? Opera Presto was built from scratch, and that was bloody 15 years ago or so, so it is understandable why it took quite some time for it to become that Opera Presto that we know today. But what on Earth its evolution story has got to do with progress of
    today's Opera that draws most of its code from already working software??? I see most of Chropera defenders tend to use the same idiotic excuses (probably prewritten by their employers), but it really helps to try to use your own brain from time to time
