Opera developer 69 - news

  • @SilentHugOfDoom It looks like, when the above mentioned version reaches stable channel, this feature will be not available then.
    You know some features are simply removed because they are not so well popular among the users (regarding to Opera's stats for example), some of them e.g. because there are not enough resources to maintain and continue of developing it.
    In some cases. there are also other reasons for removing a feature.
    If you are really curious, you can ask one of the Opera's employees, and perhaps you will receive more detailed answer for your question.

    yeah, I know and it seems like Opera is aiming a new kind of user profile; gamers. because, they believe they can expand their user base by catching their attention and make more profit from it. accordingly browser is becoming a shallow version of it's prime. this is sad, I can't make the calls, but I hope they keep some features optional or I have no choice but stop using Opera in near future. I'm using opera more than 10 years close to 15. I think you understand why I'm super angry...

    edit typo

  • @SilentHugOfDoom For gamers, there is Opera GX. Regular Opera still aims in regular users.
