Customisable Mouse gestures - why are they gone?!

  • Hey there,

    i really love opera since a long time for no reason. I also liked and used the customisable mouse gestures as a VERY POWERFUL tool to enhance my browsing experience (this made opera even more my favorite browser!)
    But then i noticed that after an Update there were only a few pre-programmed gestures which you couldnt edit... i INSTANTANEOUSLY downloaded my previous long outdated version from (from 2012 i think and am still using it today.

    I would commence to do this, but as more and more websites and contents do not load properly im on the point of switching to a more customizable browser.. but since i cant settle with that, this here is my last instance for getting the mouse gestures back! I cant believe there is no one else who feels like that..

  • "[...], because reasons."

    where did he say that? And WTF is there then still an "about:config" where 90% of the options seem like 大台 for most users??

    Did you read their blog?

  • That is sad.. i think i will now uptade from 12.5 to whatever is the most recent version. But i will keep the old installer for bad times to bring a smile into my face using my gestures again.

  • The new version of Opera (Blink) 15+ does not update/upgrade an exiting version of Opera (Presto) 12.x and below. It is installed along side and both can be used and co-exist on the same computer without any problems.

  • Yeah i recognized that, but that doesnt help much, since i always had internet explorer (shame on me) installed to view several sites correct if not supported of opera... i now switched to chrome with some addons and it works pretty good for me, but it anyway feels different...
