i just wanted to say, this is the most amazing thing i have ever downloaded, thank you so much for creating and sharing this amazing browser, i would have never thought any browser could be better than boring, but then i found opera, opera makes it feel like im even playing a game as i am only using a browser, this is the number 1 best download iv ever seen ever before! (although, you should also add a youtube icon like the one you have for twitch for those youtubers out there, like myself :D, @AlexPowersHERO) anyways i just wanna say thank you so much, i am giving a 10 star, out of 5! lol, but yeah keep up the good work devs!

I'm new to Opera and found it to be a great improvement over my previous browser. Kudos to all the developers...I may be imagining it but I made a minor tweak to turn on the wallpapers and suddenly my open tabs look a lot sharper and the theme seems to changing...I like it...the top bar just changed spontaneously.

I installed Opera a few months ago in my windows 10 machine in order to have an alternative web browser. I use firefox, mainly due to habit and laziness; I've got the bookmarks and extensions already set and don't want to tinker with those in another browser.
Today I wanted to give a shot to Opera (version 75 stable), so I clicked on the pin tile from my start menu. No response. Went to the folder and clicked on an .exe file there, I believe its name is launcher. An error message poped up. I figured maybe windows corrupted the software for some obscure reason. So I plan to uninstall it and then install it again. And here is where things started to look interesting. There was no response from the uninstaller; I tried to uninstall several times and there was no response, no process, no pop up, nothing. While I tried to fix the problem I also notice a ".opera" empty folder in my downloads folder. So I figure I needed to download tha latest version. Once downloaded, I clicked on upgrade, the progress bar filled up, the windows settings opened at the same time and I got the browser running again.
The whole process made me curious, so I tried to check some things here and there, and found:
- Opera sets itself as the default browser without asking.
- Opera started to update without even open the app in months.
- Opera creates, without asking, several tasks in the task scheduler, without asking. There were 3 tasks in total, all seemed identical and were aimed to autoupdate the app. Neither firefox nor chrome had created similar tasks.
- The autoupdate process blocked the app completely, even for uninstalling.
- I wasn't able to find a setting to disable autoupdates. Firefox's got that option.
This behaviour is deliberate, at least the part in which the browser is set as default and the part that schedule tasks. I came here to warn people. This software is too shady and you should be cautious if you plan to use it.

Recently I started using opera and I have a good experience while using it. Before using I am a little bit confused but When while using I test its features like a built-in ad blocker, battery saver, VPN, etc. I am enjoying now using opera.

I use an adblocker to Stop the ads and here you are throwing them in my face; elevated above the website level, to the browser itself. I'm just going to uninstall. Your business practices are horrible.

After years of using Ope rI am finally giving up. It has often had glitches and can be temperamental, but it was good.Now it selects at random which website I can visit or not.
' Your connection is not private ' and refuses to allow me to visit even when I overrule it. These are sites I use daily ! And well known sites. This is ridiculous .No way to make contact with Opera and seek a remedy. Instead we have to do their work for them and (unpaid ) and solve their problems between us. Authoritarian profiteering No I am moving and taking all me stuff with me .the internet companies are becoming fascist.

I keep giving Opera a chance, but Opera keeps taking that opportunity to kick me in the rear end. Just now, I just had to Again switch my default browser From Opera. Why? Well, Opera has never been at a loss to find ways to screw things up, and it recently found another. I've never found another browser that Consistently and Unfailingly managed to make it impossible to use.. Never, Not even close. If you stay with Opera for, say, three months, it will fail you.
How is it that I started using the Username Damnyou? One guess.
Why do I keep trying? Only two reasons: Opera is fast and Opera is beautiful. If only i could add, "Opera works." Slim chance of that.

I finally found the way, the only way, to deal with Opera's deficiencies: Delete And Reinstall.
It’s Simple. Don’t waste any time trying fix it. Just Delete And Reinstall.
When it goes haywire, and it will, count on it, just delete it and start over.
How often will this have to be done? That’s hard to say, but don’t expect it to perform properly for more than three months.

Good for you. I have to fix it Again today (Wed Dec 29,2021). It lost my start-up page, which is the glory of Opera...
when it works.
I might add that Opera had been my default browser, but I had to change to another browser because of the many problems I encountered using Opera. Anyway, today I briefly made it my default browser again, hoping that that would bring back my Spes Dial. Nope, that didn't work, so I'm now going to switch back to Vivaldi.
