Keep in sync with Opera for Android 60 and new Opera desktop

  • @kribaz if you go through the regular sync process in Opera for desktops, you will see an option to use the QR code and another one to use your Opera account with Sync. So, you don't have to remember any link.

  • @leocg: password sync does not work through qr code either

  • @evgeniipanikaro Here they seem to have been synced.

  • @leocg Hi Leocg, yes I know that. I dont mind to use password, but sync should work. After my post I guess something has fix as now it has sync as requested. Cheers.

  • @N13l5 And you're accusing Opera of doing this because...? You have some kind of proof?

  • A very inconvenient function!

  • A new version. A New Version page appears on startup. Ooh weather looks good. I clicked on the Weather icon and now I am here on a page that doesn't seem to have anything to do with weather. Please fix.

  • @n13l5: The fact that you use a phone shows that your data might already be with NSA, etc.. It's not about Opera please.

  • Hey Opera, thanks for making an amazing browser. I made Opera my default browser (desktop & mobile) when the VPN feature came in and I appreciate the work you guys do to keep it together.
    Your developer tools are very good but I think they can be better (I only use Opera though); just add more options for us Web Developers.
    Thank you.

  • Give Opera for Huawei users. Add it to AppGallery and update fast.

  • Can I turn off Easy Files? I can't find any settings with which to do this, and it's honestly more of a pain for me than a help. The vast majority of the time, if I need to upload a file to a web site, it has nothing whatsoever to do with anything I've recently downloaded. Having this popover come up every time I click an upload link is annoying AF.

  • Replying to myself: Never mind, I found that the almost-invisible X in the corner of the popover gives me the option to not show it again. Please stop following the trend of hiding controls and options until hover or click!

  • Bring the "closed tabs" back. "History" is inconvenient to use.

  • Did you check your "flow" in connection with google pixel 3a? It does not work...!

  • Hello (not again). Opera has started following the annoying pattern of Firefox where after every trivial "update" you think it is necessary to interrupt every user by hijacking their opening screen with a damn ad for Opera. Guess what? I'm already using Opera -- that's how you got to display your stupid ad! If I want to know what you think you fixed or 'improved' with the latest update I can go to your website to see it. When I open a link in my browser, I expect the browser to go where I told it to -- not to some silly ad for a product I'm already using.

  • @XaunLoc Unless something is really wrong in your installation, the "ad" opens in a separate tab, in both Firefox and Opera. So if you switched into Opera by clicking a link outside of Opera, your chosen page is still loading in its own tab. You're not losing any time except the trivial time it takes to close the superfluous tab. (Command-W and/or Alt-F4 ought to be second nature.)

    I'm not saying you're wrong to bring this up as a minor annoyance, but it seems like an awfully trivial hill to choose to die on.

    (For the record, I like to know when an app has updated behind my back. It gives me suspect #1 if anything doesn't work the way it used to.)

  • @quantumpanda - Oh, I agree that it is a minor annoyance and no it's not "a hill I would die on" - but it is an annoyance that any competent and customer-focused developer would either avoid or make optional. I mentioned it mostly for two reasons:

    1. Opera had just now annoyed me with it, and a place to complain about it was just a click away;
    2. So far as my experience, this annoyance was a new facet of Opera (while previously Firefox was the only browser where I encountered this particular stupidity). I had a probably vain hope that the developers might be at least slightly interested in the opinion of their supposed customer

    This isn't the only minor annoyance in Opera, or even the worst (if simply because the updates aren't excessively frequent, while my pet peeve with Opera is a twice daily occurrence).

  • Could you bring instant search back? It was killer feature for me

  • The only thing left to solidify Opera as my go-to browser for everything would be front-end profiles with usability in mind. I know it's the same tired banner that everyone's likely sick of by now - "you can make multiple profiles by making desktop links," "use this extension that you need to figure out yourself," etc.

    But come on. How can the most requested feature of this browser somehow not be already in one of these updates or in development? And if it is in development, could the Opera team please, pretty please with a cherry on top, send us a message? A simple Tweet is all I ask. Just "hey, we have heard all of you, for the past couple of years we have been around. It's coming." That alone would do wonders for this browser, and I would finally be able to ditch Chrome once and for all.

  • @majeru: I agree with that. They remove useful features and add useless stuff nobody asked for.
