General Opera One Feedback Topic

@separatereality I can relate so much!
I have been using Opera since version three, survived the big switch to Blink and the butchering of all useful features of old Opera without a single complain.
Even used Opera Mini with iPad, a very compromised experience.
But that sounds is making me consider switching to Firefox (Vivaldi being too ugly for my taste)

So, as I stated on my previous post, I suspected the start up noise is Win specific ... and it is! There is an .exe file on Win that runs the flash-n-glam.
Good to be on Linux
(no noises here, or flashy)

Please revert some design changes back or make Opera Two with a similar design to version 9*.*. Please, please, please. I still try to reconcile with the current Opera one but I can't. I apologize for my negative post but I hope that you understand it.

Dear Opera Devs, Execs and other corporate evil entities:
Your latest release is a complete and utter failure. I cherished your application for it's versatility, ease of use and stability... and along comes this latest version: bugs, endless issues, difficulty moving tabs... the list of issues is endless now.
Just roll back ffs.

For some time now, I can't remember exactly when, there has been this annoying fanfare that sounds when Opera starts. I don't like it, I don't need it, I know I started the browser, but now I can't find a way to turn it off. What can I do?

signed up just to say how much i hate this feature
maybe the devs like it, why not give the option to turn it off? both the sound and the splash screen. just do it
opera updates regularly, this is a reoccuring annoyance

Is there a way to stop the useless stupid music & animated logo when starting Opera browser?

Dear greedy Opera execs, corporate slugs and to the poorly underpaid, but wonderful Devs in your service:
I used to be able to drag tabs into another monitor screen with just one click and swipe.
I use to be able to close tabs easily with one click... now I can't even select the right tab from your window anymore... and when I do, it mutes the tab instead of closing.
I used to be able to select more than one tab and drag them easily... now you've ruined tabs, making it impossible for me to move, rearrange or select them the way I used to.
I'm completely lost and frustrated by the unintuitive and backward design of your latest release.
I cherished Opera for years; trusted in your good judgement and supported your platform; suggesting it to family members, friends, and customers. Now you need to respond.
Fix your goddamn release.

never had a problem until version 100.
new theme and up 100 version:
- I can't drag up and down when move with the mouse to the right edge (there is a small empty space).
- when I watch the video the video is shakes or the breaks (on sites players). when need restart browser
- the browser has become slow (strange)
on other browser all okay.
why did opera screw up such a good browser? I hate this slow and many bugs opera browser...

Gladly, I‘m still not experiencing any bug in Opera One. Almost anything works for me as expected.
I use the new Aria AI for sure and comparing it to Bing I found it superior, at least in my test cases. And I especially like its integration into their iOS app, which is superb in my opinion.
I‘ve installed and fired up Edge just to compare both browsers and realized that the latter might have all the extras that Opera also claims to have. But two things keep me from using Edge as my browser of choice:
First, I really think, that Opera‘s interface is much cleaner, for me at least. Call it getting used to it. But even after the update I find everything I need.
Second, I‘m not that involved in Microsoft‘s eco system, I‘d rather try to avoid it, as they always happened to act anti-competitive in the past, concerning OS, browser and office. And therefore I bother them urging me to use their other services as well.
I‘ve tried all the other major browsers in the past, but they all let me coming back to Opera, eventually. I‘m neither posting this to say, that there aren‘t any flaws, nor to insult other users who’ve made less good experiences. I‘m just telling that for me, it‘s the least bad browser, so I might use it. And will do it for a time to come. Still, it‘s only a piece of software, nothing to struggle about, isn’t it?

Despite Opera releasing this series (Opera One) into production, the product does not feel production-ready. I qualify this by the large number of bugs I continue to encounter, with a significant portion of the bugs being severe. I regard Opera crashing as well as the loss of all (>140) tabs repeatedly as severe. I regard missing bookmark folders, display issues, lost Tab Islands, etc. as minor issues.
My work is mostly performed within a browser, and for this I use 3 Windows-based browsers, with Opera being my primary. I won't go into why Opera is my primary other than to say it has a ton of fantastic features and that I have used it since the early days. However, I do use other browsers because none of them are perfect and there are certain sites that just don't work properly in Opera, for example certain Microsoft admin sites.
Recently though Opera has made life difficult with the many bugs, some of which I am encountering repeatedly and that cause a lot of extra work for me. For example, I use 5 workspaces with approximately 30 open tabs in each, and I have many of the tabs in those workspaces grouped into tab islands. I am organised. Every now & again Opera loses all my open tabs which means (a) I have to use a 3rd-part extension to record my tabs so I can restore what Opera lost, (b) I have to restore & manually reallocate the tabs to their correct workspaces and (c) I have to manually put tabs back into the correct tab islands. And this has happened several times. That is a lot of repeated fixing for something that is supposed to be production-ready.
I have reported numerous bugs over the long time I have used Opera. I am sure others sometimes report the same bugs, as well as many others I haven't encountered. Opera never indicates to the bug-submitter if the issue has been replicated and resolved. If the bug is easily reproducible it is easy to test if its been resolved in a future release (sometimes only after many future releases), but often the bug is not easily reproducible. Opera should notify the submitter when it has been addressed. Because I never know which of my bugs have been addressed, sometimes I have to re-submit a bug that occurs again after an Opera update (causing more admin for Opera). It might be that Opera still has this bug open, or they may have closed the bug and hoped it was fixed, but I never know which.
I am sure Opera cares about its community of users. Tell us how we can more effectively help you improve the product other that simply submitting bugs or posting on this forum.
Likewise, please think how you can better address the issues your community raises via bug submissions, suggestions and blog posts like this.

TL;DR: Opera One is just another last-gen browser offering but is pitched as top-notch.
With more browsers on the rise that emphasize workspaces and treating the web as more of an OS, rather than a static application, I figured I'd step away from my mainstay browser, Brave, and try something new that promised something similar but was available now. I figured that the Opera group would have a pretty firm grasp on this concept with Opera One. But I am not impressed. More than that, I'm actually pretty confused - maybe to the point of frustration.
Much of my experience with One over the past two weeks has really highlighted two key points. Firstly, what I'm looking for apparently doesn't exist yet. Second, Opera One is a fresh coat of paint on something that isn't even remotely new. It's just Chrome with a hat on
Some key factors that stuck out to me as poor:
- Slim selection of keyboard shortcuts relative to 'new features'.
- Sync is an absolute labyrinth that ultimately does not work.
- My Flow is simply non-functional.
- Pinboards appear not to have been meaningfully updated since launch.
With AI being touted as a sort of central pillar to the browser, there appears to be a noticeable lack of it. Aria isn't available in my region, apparently. That's fair, I'm a ChatGPT subscriber, so maybe - Nope. Just a sidebar app for me. No quick access. Ctrl+/ should shortcut directly to your preferred bot. I don't see the issue in that.
With all the strange sandboxing of messenger apps, somehow messages for web (Android) and Discord didn't make the cut. I know Discord is available in GX, so what gives? Loads of teams use Discord to coordinate. Very odd.
Sync -- I have attempted to get this feature to function across so many scenarios. On a number of occasions, it was actually an impedance to real work. I log in, select what information I'd like to sync and that's great at first. One laptop, desktop and mobile client later, and there's literally nothing synced between even two of them. If I log into my very useful Opera account, I can see all the synced data all right there! Bookmarks, pinboards, passwords, etc. It's all right there. Brilliant. But as soon as one of the clients needs something that was generated/saved from/uploaded to another client - forget about it. You'll have to log in, and find it and then make use of it. Horrendous experience.
My Flow -- I haven't had the pleasure of using this even once. A feature that on paper, should be exactly what I should love about Opera. The QR/mobile sync just doesn't work between two windows machines and an android phone. I have attempted every permutation of getting these three devices (or just two) to "flow" and it simply does not function. The disjointed experience of logging in here (sometimes twice), tapping there, being presented with a 2FA code that no other client is asking to authenticate (!?). I've never seen something that is so fundamentally nonfunctional.
Pinboards should be one of the core functions of the browser. A place to endlessly assemble ideas that directly correlate with linked information (articles, images, video, etc.) Currently, it feels like something that just recently passed muster through a group that saw the potential and then never looked at it again. I was stunned to discover that this feature was announced and added to Opera two years ago and it's absolutely bare. This feature should have been an absolute powerhouse of tools. Pin a tab, drag and drop it onto a canvas that allows you to add 'post-it' style notes, draw an arrow to an imgur thumbnail. Click-drag a selection box to highlight all the above and resize it to the corner. Add a big text field that acts as a folder. Drag and drop all that stuff into the field and jooop! right click to share it. Fluid, fast ideation for whatever the hell you want/need to do. Instead, we have a trello board. Nice one. Oh and as previously mentioned, if I made a board on desktop, it lives there forever. Excellent.
I was really hoping for an experience that matched the copy on the home site. It's not here. Nothing even remotely innovative is happening here. I have to move on to another product.

Why don't you have a separate page for collective information on innovations, like the same Opera GX? I have to go through the changelog for at least some understanding. But there technical information is collected for developers, and not for ordinary users. I don't understand 99% of what is written in the changelog. Where can I find a normal description of the fixes and innovations of the browser?

The latest Opera version is very slow to download and to start operating. Speed dialing just downloads and downloads. After downloading folder tags have no names and no identified icons. After completing the download all icons are very small on tags and can are hardly readable. Old version was working much better. I have been using opera since it appeared on the market but now I think I have to change to an other browser.
