You guys absolutely have to have containers as Firefox does. For me, it seems you're faster and less glitchy and, that's why I'm still using Opera. And, the visual quality is just cleaner with the text and everything displayed being crisp and seeming high-resolution. I love that. However, there are serious limitations with extensions or, add-ons as they're called in Firefox. Right now, it's the workspace feature, the clean and tight look of the assets displayed that are keeping me using it. Firefox is kind of evidently slow. However, the range of add-ons and now, the container feature has had me downloading it. I'm really considering switching to it. I would have no choice because those features just align with my workflow. And, your bookmark feature is too much headache. Too, too much headache with that "Passphrase" thing.
Your scaling is the incredible. However, scaling isn't everything.

Hello, I've been using Opera for a few weeks for home and work, and I've noticed a lack of some serious quality of life functions you see in other browsers that make it hard to keep using, especially at work.
No function to clear browser/cache/download history on exit. This exists in Chrome and Firefox, but not here. It is a bit of a necessity at work, as I have to open hundreds of spreadsheets I download daily, and it just floods the download bar. Sure, I can manually clear it, but that seems like an unnecessary option to do when every other browser does it for you. It also helps with security if others get on my PC.
No option to open files directly. You have to download then double click the item in the download list to open files. Again, Firefox and Chrome has this option, not sure why Opera doesn't have this. I see that people have been asking for this for years. As I said above, I download hundreds of spreadsheets a day, and having the option to have the file loaded into temporary internet files and open up automatically makes life so much easier. With Opera, I have to select a singular folder and everything saves there, then I have to manually open it. It's kind of annoying to do this, and it floods my download folder. I could change the download folder to the windows temp folder, but then all my files will go there. It's just a giant annoyance.
Middle Mouse Button doesn't close last tab. This is just an annoyance to me. I've always closed all my browsers by using the middle mouse button to close all the tabs. You can still do this, but the last tab will never close, it just opens up the tiles page.
I'm just posting some stuff I've noticed, and I can see from googling, a lot of others have made these complaints over the last few years with no real response. I just felt I needed to add my own comments on this, as I truly do enjoy this browser, but some functions are just, honestly, poorly designed for use as a browser to use for work.

Another issue i'm finding is after watching youtube videos for a couple of hours, the browsers have a video crash, then continue to do so every few minutes. They recover well enough, but it's very consistent only on Opera.

Opera is working just fine, all aspects. But a few points, queries occur...
- Must I have always to delete the messenger etc icons in the sidebar every time Opera updates? Are they that fantastic?
- I cannot find a setting to stop Opera immediately switching to the new tab whenever I click on a link in a webpage - I get to wait while the page loads.....
- Just wondering.... why does Opera always install to a version folder under Program Files instead of to some nominated folder, named something like Opera? Why no choice as to installation location?
- Something else, but I've forgotten what, so it is obviously as little important as the preceding points....
Cheers. Still my favourite browser...., even if it creates so many opera files and uses a mass of memory now. " Build it and they will come." sure applies to RAM availability.

Something completely ruined Opera. Every version after 66 is plagued by freezes and "Not responding" pages. I'm tired of fighting this, Opera has become unusable. I've managed to freeze my Opera at v.66 but it obviously can't be a permanent fix. Initially, I was hoping these problems were just "growing pains" but new versions come and go and it doesn't get better. I can't be the only one with these problems, so any ideas?

There were several times that I opened my Speed Dials and there it is: some annoying advertissements on top. Is Opera who put them there and I don't like it at all.

So now I can no longer open a previously closed tab, only the latest one, so I have to open 5 before I find the one I want.
Also I can't click the tab to jump to the top of the page like I used to.
Why keep removing the good stuff?
And they still haven't fixed Ebay! Most listings show the main description in a tiny inset frame that scrolls seperately, very difficult to use. No other browser does that.

The application has been messed up for the past month and Im not sure if I want to support it any longer
- page load soo slow. my connection has no problems at all
- page freeze after few minutes of not using
- some website are cropped for some reason? (happens mostly with discord the page doesn't show up fully on Opera only, no problem with other browser)
- crashes often
so, is it only me ? or the application is getting worse ?
