Opera next - password, help ect

  • Hi guys

    I was a proud user of OPERA for years. Recently, to be precise today i decided to move to the "next" best thing. I'm not the complaining type but i have reach my limit(and it took me about 20 min)the experience so far has been staggering.
    One main question: WHAT IN THE WORLD HAVE YOU DONE?? Opera(12) was 90 percent perfect. All it needed was a few fixes and that's it. I'm not a tech geek so i don't know or care anything about engines chromiums ect.. All i do care about is the usability of a browser. And since no development is done to v12, i figured moving to the next has to be a wise decision, All that work had to be done to furter better my faviorite browser - right....naaa wrong. Everything that i loved about Opera, the features that gave it the extra edge are gone. And the new.... let me share two things:
    1) Passwords - the old has a briliant password manager. Recalling a passowrd is just perfect. The "next" - it took, sorry it has been 20 minutes and i still can find a way to recall a previously stored password. The help of the next is useless in this matter as well - or is it me, not being able to find anything in it...
    btw. help claims that my old profile is automatically moved to the next - including passwords. Well ....is has not moved anything.
    2) Opera link - the one thing that might just save the day.... and guess what - it solely syncs the bookmarks...
    and this list has far more points...

    All in all i'm bitterly disappointed not only with the fact that My favorite browser has been discontinued(let's face it next has noting to do with the old opera), but the worst thing is that the next appears like it has been released unfinished and there is noting worst from the customer/sales point of view then doing something of that nature

    I'm moving back to ver 12 for the time being, and since it does not comply with current webstandards and causes much trouble with many websites the time being stands for since i find something else that fills the gap.

    I have to apologize for my language, especially the tone but ....as a user, a supporter of opera, that recommended it as the best browser for business to all of my clients i feel left alone ...ditched so to speak. And as You all know there is noting worts then a long time loyal client feeling that way.

    If you want to login on a page, just go to that page and your login and password will be automatically inserted on those fields if previously saved. If you want to use another (saved) username/login, just start typing it or use the down arrow key.
