Positively Preferring oPera over the Pretenders!

  • Local Weather in Start Page! 🙂

  • Twitter in Sidebar!

    With crystal-clear font!

    Memory is released automatically when Twitter view in sidebar is closed!

    Brilliant!

  • Moving tabs to other workspaces comes with an indicator in the sidebar for the workspace acquiring the new tab. Excellent!

  • The aesthetics of Opera's browser is the best I have come across ... other browsers just have a clunkier look to me. Combine that with Opera's snappy UI (compared to other browsers), and Opera is my winner!

  • Opera's ability to search not only tab title and tab url but also tab/page content in Quick Search (Search in Tabs) for both open tabs and recently closed tabs is awesome! I see no other browser doing this.

  • " Ctrl-` " keyboard shortcut to go back and forth between two tabs. It works flawlessly and quickly. Most other browsers have to rely on some bloated extension for similar capability, albeit not as well-performing, though.

  • The multiple options presented for speed dial button images is very nice in Opera! 😘

  • Now, Opera affords me keyboard shortcuts for my social sidebar options ... I use ALT-SHIFT-T for Twitter and ALT-SHIFT-F for Facebook Messenger ... this matches Vivaldi's ability to do this. Thank you, Opera! 🙂

  • @treego I actually preferred its original implementation. I was only really interested in incremental tab search on the titles of tabs, which I customised to F2. Now it returns too much information. For example I almost never want to search for content inside tabs other than the one I'm in.

    In the original implementation I could spot the tab I was interested in very quickly. Now it can take several seconds or I have to type more characters to narrow it down. So it's a speed bump.

    I don't mind when software vendors add new features. What's annoying is when they remove old ones - unless the new features offer more or more usable functionality. Often they don't.

    Opera and Vivaldi are supposed to be about customisability - more so than the other Chromium browsers, so it's even worse when they remove behaviour.

  • Easy Files is the latest innovation from Opera that for me is another winner!

    I can now more easily and quickly than ever attach files to my emails or Twitter and Facebook posts.

    One can attach files to virtually anything so elegantly now!

    Thank you, Opera!
