I cannot believe that we're on Opera 25 and still don't have CUSTOM DEFAULT SEARCH ENGINE

What on earth is the true Opera? Opera is Opera is Opera. Currently the latest stable version of Opera is 25.0.1614.63. It is about as real as they come in spite of a few who lament the discontinuing of version 12. In that people are free to express themselves, I would agree... provided they are civil about it. Ridiculing and threatening are not productive. At some point users of the Presto browser have to face reality. The reality of the situation is that Presto is dead. Trying to keep it alive makes about as much sense as running with Windows XP an unsupported OS that will ultimately invite hacking and malware. One recognizes that the OS is no longer supported and moves on... Windows 7 or whatever one wishes provided it is supported. The same holds true for Opera. I once used Netscape but when it was finally discontinued I dropped it since there was no wisdom in continuing to use a dead browser. THAT is reality.

The true Opera came first - so by ANY counts it's been rightfully holding its name.
Then it was ceased - actually - and replaced by ANOTHER browser.
The only three things that connect them (ok, four):
- the name,
- the letter "O" wherever it is,
- adopting bookmarks IF the existing browser's set as "default",
well, and the corporation - however having shuffled its staff, judicially the same.
Those were THE ONLY few things in common.
EVERYTHING else is TOTALLY different (ah, well, the window's shape is rectangular, right).

I may add, the only superior feature what is left are the mouse gestures. Or is there something comparable for chromium/iron?

I once used Netscape too. I dropped it because IE took over - it was faster, nicer and more compatible.
Then I used IE for many versions, but (almost) dropped it for Opera - Opera was faster, nicer and almost compatible. And customizable For few incompatible sites I kept using IE.
Now what? I do not like Firefox. I hate google. I have played with couple of browsers lately - no one is faster than old Opera, no one is handy. Maybe I should switch to IE again? Not that customizable, but somehow not that bad either. I know I know, this all is very subjective. Well, for me this subjectivity matters very much
I'm trying to get used to new Opera. I can't say anything bad about compatibility (except IDcard support - for this I need IE or Chromium), I like extensions world - but it doesn't feel that snappy and handy as older Operas. Sure I miss some options, currently not solvable even using extensions. And it looks foreign on my old'n'good unsupported XP
What I really wanted to say...
leushino, stop your senseless praising of new Opera and calling old Opera users names. With such postings you make more bad than good for Opera community.
