Are you kidding or something, bring back the old design, the new garbage is absolutely inconvenient and useless

Well, I've been an opera user for over 20 years but with this new version I think it's time to start looking for something else.
Losing the speed dial button and that god awful splash screen at startup is just pointless and annoying.
It was a good 2 decades, so thanks all at Opera. Good luck in the future.
If anyone has recommendations for a replacement browser, let me know!

Let's do it. If you decide to completely kill the opera, then at least make it possible to turn off automatic updates and post previous versions on the site so that people can choose the version themselves.

@martin-s The problem is, there are millions of users who are not saying anything and there are only dozens here who are complaining. I doubt the engineers are going to worry about a few dozen people not liking this or that. Also, it was brought home to me that Opera is not going to run with two versions of the desktop browser (other than their gaming GX browser). And remaining in the older, pre-updated version isn't a viable option either since it will not receive security updates. Bottom line: we'll have to learn to live with it and hope for the changes we've asked for OR we'll have to migrate elsewhere (i.e. Brave, Vivaldi, Firefox...). Probably Vivaldi is the most reasonable alternative for most.

this is crazy that yall insisted on adding this Loud splash screen to Opera, and what worst is that you can't disable it ️
noone asked for a splash screen... i was fine at first when the splashscreen only appeared after relaunching the browser after an update. but its just annoying now, in fact i opened a new TAB the other day and the splash screen briefly launched ️ so not only is it unnecessary but buggy. the "flags" option to disable does Not work
and why oh why have yall not fixed the speed dial button. most opera users don't even use the sidebar...please relocate the speeddial button to just left of the address bar, that is the best place for it
i dunno why the programmers are adding stuff noone cares about and messing with things that ppl like. it doesnt make sense. if something works leave it alone. noone cares about a loud splash screen where you have to run and turn your volume down.. get rid of it..this is rediculous

I installed opera on on my windows 10 computer because I wanted to play with the Aria function.
I created a Opera account and also setup sync. I made some configuration changed and played with Aria a bit. Rather underwhelming I must say.
I decided to also install opera on my laptop and was rather disappointed to find out that almost nothing got synced.
- No side bar configuration.
- the extension I installed was not synced
- Speeddial wasn't synced.
I set thing up to sync everything so this was a let down
I even waited a fair amount of time an rebooted the laptop.
This all worked a lot better with the Brave Browser.

@uberprutser It's known that extensions are not synced.
Regarding Speed Dials, as also known, you can see the Speed Dials from other devices in Other Speed Dials and you can copy them to your current Speed Dial in the bookmarks manager page (opera://bookmarks).

It's fair enough to have discussions, and exchange tips on the changes, tweaks and issues we experience, necessary even, but wouldn't you, for once, enjoy saluting something positive? Opera is immeasurably better than having to batter your head against Edge or having your life dictated by the almighty Chrome. Let yourself be genuinely appreciative for a moment. Not every comment sent through the ether has to be a criticism disguised as an attempt to make the writer look knowledgeable. All I know is this: I appreciate what you're doing Opera and I think I love you guys. Peace. XXX
