Have an own forum for Presto-based Opera versions

  • I said this in other topic. There is no reason to use Presto, you will have so much problems and problems with it that you will see yourself using another browser more than Presto itself.

  • Works fine for me, no worse (and in a lot of ways, better) than any other browser.

  • Listen, people, when Mozilla had a different project - they gave it a different name, right?
    Why couldn't these... Vikings do the same? 😕

  • Er, because the company's actually called Opera perhaps?
    Why would they call it anything else?
    Presto Opera 12.17 works fine for me 95% of the time, at the moment, but I'm under no illusion that this won't get worse as time goes on.
    The main annoyance is on forms, where you spend ages filling them in, only for the "submit" button then to do nothing because of a javascript problem!
    It's a long way from being so bad that I would abandon it as my primary browser yet though.
    🙂

  • Dave, you're a reasonable man. 🙂 I'm beginning to see your points in regards to a separate forum.

  • Well, Dave, was Opera their first project? Then it's justified to have it a namesake to the company.
    But this __nu__Opera is not their first project...:sherlock:

  • +1 for it

    And to get away with OS Type/Version itself/etc. - Most Support Forums I know have a sub-forum for "legacy-products"/"older versions <app_name>" or something similar (catch all type of subforum). And yes, I think that it could at least soften the Presto/Chropera battles in valid support (user2user) requests (*1), as the "other population of Opera Users" could simply ignore such a forum (if they step away from trolling).

    *1:
    not general discussions - which ends up in Opera For * as it is nowadayscycle ('cause of missing alternatives(?) - as we don't have a generic Opera Discussion Forum so far, or am I missing something?

  • Shandra, if the two browsers had different names (or at leat the second one's one were adjusted with something), new users would not have "misposted" (or at least less likely would) if we had different subforums for the browsers.

    For now, I guess such a "legacy" thing would become legitimate only after a/the official announcement has been issued widely stating that the company had ceased any and all support for the older browser completely. That is not the case yet.

  • such a "legacy" thing would become legitimate only after a/the official announcement has been issued widely stating that the company had ceased any and all support for the older browser completely.

    And why would that be? Products differ now and solutions do, too.
    That has nothing to do with either the name of the product or its lifetime.

  • Would be a good idea considering how many questions continue to be Presto. It's unfortunate Opera deleted the previous forum, which even if surviving as a read-only resource would have continued to be immeasurably useful to Presto users.

    Also honestly glad leushino isn't around to troll anymore. The guy never stopped causing arguments and general dissension.
