  • I have just upgraded from 12 to 22 and it is time to part company. Here are the reasons why;

    Bookmarks: The properties window has gone. For rarely visited websites I used to keep useful information in here such as login names. And I want a bookmarks drop down, not a bar.

    Links: I cannot turn off the underline. I have no idea why but underlined links annoy the hell out of me.

    Image in page: The icons for 'fit to width' and 'turn off images' were incredibly useful. Now they don't exist.

    And the deal breaker,
    Context menu: The option to open in 'this' tab has gone. This is the one thing that set opera apart from all other browsers, I could decide which tab to use. Google is set to open links in a new tab, however there are occasions when I have too many tabs open and I do not want to add to the mayhem. After a quick search I could open it 'here', though not any more.

    I knew that opera was using chrome as a backend, but opera now is just an uglier version of chrome.

  • And it is getting worse; No open image, no image zoom, and speaking as a developer no editing of page source. Good job 12 still works because that is now the only browser that lets me edit the source.

    Change for the sake of change, not a good thing. Selling your soul, even worse.

  • There are lots of topics to complain about missing features/resources on Opera Blink, please do a search and post on one of them.
