Opera: You're leaving us?

  • Upon uninstalling Opera 19 it opened me up to this page in my default browser:

    Whatever happened to it asking you why you're uninstalling it? And no sh*t you've changed, telling me that after uninstalling you is like telling me you changed right after I leave you for cheating.

  • Picture doesn't load. And mind your language, 2nd warning for you.

    2nd warning? What was the first? The image loads works for me. Try, http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/9408/cipz.jpg

  • I guess you don't read your own threads then if you missed it :P I deleted the 1st offending message just earlier today from this thread http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=1795432 your entire post and my warning are both gone now, both had been there for days.

    And no, the picture doesn't open.

    I must have over looked that one. I wasn't aware anyone other than Pesala and j7nj7n had replied to it.

    Weird that the picture isn't showing up. It's a screen shot of: http://www.opera.com/o/leaving-us?version=19.0.1326.9

  • Yes, the picture has been shown with me (Opera 12.14)!

    BTW, I look at the picture (of Opera), it's likely those two people are trying to suicide! ROFL

    Exactly. Upon first seeing that screenshot, my first thought was that somebody had made a joke picture again. I'm still getting used to seeing me being addressed by software as "us".

    Opium is anything but lighter, btw. Granted it's faster. The photo to the right moves up and down following the mouse in my browser, causes CPU usage while doing so. It's symbolic of today's heavy web, where a page containing 2 sentences and a button uses disproportionate amount of resources, because somebody thought they would somehow convey a sense of "lightness" to some viewers.

    19? People are still complaining about 15, and recently I saw a few threads about 18. If 19 is here then people can stop complaining about 15 lol.

    Just as a point of information: the photo movement puts a notable CPU load in Firefox 25.0.1 as well (15-75% on various of this system's quad-cores). Curiously, CPU loading in Opera 12.14 is only about half that of Firefox, running 5-35% on various of the cores, although the motion effect onscreen is identical. In retrospect, Presto appears to have been one amazing engine, more than I had formerly realized...

    Not really missing much. 15/16/17/18/19 are all part of Opera's new rapid release cycle, which both Firefox and Opera have followed Chrome in doing. It's basically a battle of who has the highest version number rather than the best browser. I think it's really stupid as none of them are even major releases. And the rapid release cycle (aka the Chrome strategy) isn't even a good idea because changes have to be well managed so immature code doesn't sneak into a release.

    Xactly!!

  • Actually it should say something like this:

    "You're leaving us?
    Sorry we've changed.

    Get the real Opera (Presto)"

    +1

  • Nice photo, I think those guys are not suicidal, but competing for a nice award named after Charles Darwin. Methinks Opera 15+ would be a fine candidate for it too.
