[Solved]Has Opera changed in some way?

  • I have been using Opera for my iPad for over a year and I thought it was an excellent website. Unfortunately I lost Opera on my iPad and I had to download it again. The new app. (from Apple) everything seems to have changed and Opera now seems to be just another 'run-of-the-mill' website - slow to use as all the others. Fortunately, Opera on my PC hasn't changed and it is still my favourite website on my PC.

    Has Opera changed in some way?

    The way my iPad used to behave was very similar to that of the PC. One of the better things I liked about it on my iPad was the 'Top Sites', which I could add/remove as I wanted. Also the mobile icon at the centre of the bottom of the screen would appear when I was screening downwards and which allowed me to switch easily to new websites. Now, although I can remove and edit the default 'Top Sites' that are given to me by the app, I can't add any new ones. For instance, if I wanted to add a Top Site (say Google) how do I do it? I have seven 'default' sites, none of which I use very often but I can't add any of the ones I would find useful are unavailable.

    Any help would be very useful



  • @mustafacatflap Opera Mini for IOS stopped being developed, as it seems, and now Opera Touch is being offered to IOS users.

    So, basically, you are using a totally different product.

  • @mustafacatflap Top Sites would be Speed Dials?

    You should be able to add a page as a Speed Dial by clicking on the three dots in address/search bar.

  • Thank you for that information. I take it from what you say the system I used is now defunct. I suppose they fixed it because it was working too well 🙂

    As far as clicking the 3 dots, this is what I get when I do that:
    Find in Page
    Site Options
    Desktop Site ( on/off)
    Private Mode
    My Flow

    Which one is it please?


  • @mustafacatflap Click on the star on the top.

  • OK Gotcha. Many thanks for that. Now, what are the numbers on the next Euro Millions :))
