This new Opera is ridiculously bad

    The fault was yours โ€” you were the one who joined this thread, which started with a rant for a thread title, with a rant of your own.

    1. Don't make inflammatory posts or threads just to stir up the forum or blog. Don't exaggerate just to make a point. Respect your fellow community members, and don't vent your frustrations at them. No trolling.

    2. No personal attacks. Attack the idea, not the person. Never post negative forum threads about other forum members.

    So read the forum rules again, and follow them. Then you will get the help you need without the criticism of your bad manners.

    Please respect the forum rules, post in the right forum, stay on topic and be friendly.

  • The part about not ranting at people who post was aimed directly at Lueshino. I did a quick search and he or she is always slinging arrows.

    Your response after my post was not needing anymore of these kind of threads. It made me stand up on my hind legs and I called you arrogant. I should not have doe that but it brought up past times when I saw so many (lack of a better word) fan boys who would just name call when we complained about Opera changing.

    I did read the forum rules and I think Lueshino should read them several times. The rules are to stay friendly. I go to a lot of different forums and this I can say with a high certainty, the Opera forum was always one that the tireless supporters would always name call to anyone that had a negative point.

    Now back to a question....am I correct, there is no bookmarks anymore? I have a stable version. Looks like I'll get an update when I restart.

    19.0.1326.47 - Restart Opera to update to version 19.0.1326.56
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)

  • If you need help, ask for it. Otherwise respect the terms of service and stop the personal attacks on me. I see you've been a member here for a few weeks. I've been here for many years and an Opera user since 2000. It's apparent that you took out a membership to do nothing more than rag on Opera. It won't work. Opera has made its decision so either live with it, continue to use an older version or find another browser. And I suggest you put me on your Ignore list. YOU are now on mine. :whistle:

    Find your own answers. Rule #1 is โ€œSearch before posting.โ€

    You have no respect for others, and have done nothing here to earn the right to sling arrows at others when they object to your disruptive behaviour on these forums. A new kid on the block, after an absence of years, and you think that people should be nice to you when you are just throwing tantrums.

    Somebody must, else there'd be no new Opera version downloads or occasional requests for technical help in these forums.

    Yeah, well. But for each such request in the forums, there are like five or ten posts criticizing what has become of Opera.

    And if you think they're all clones or something like that, look at the comments from the users in this post about Opera posted yesterday on a general tech news website: http://linux.slashdot.org/story/14/01/31/1629253/former-dev-gives-gloomy-outlook-on-linux-support-for-the-opera-browser

    The amount of people who "want this browser anymore" seems to be diminishingly slow.

    By the way, I have downloaded all the new Developer versions, and posted a help request in the forum, but it's not because I want this browser. It's because I still check every version because I have a tiny bit of irrational hope in that it can recover part of the old glory.

    ...

    If you will check the first line of my post which you referenced, you will note I asked: "Exaggerate much?" The ensuing quotes/responses were confrontations of exaggeration made by the OP. "Nobody" means 'not one person,' was an exaggeration as used, and it was being confronted. Whether there are 5 or 500 user complaints for every positive one, that doesn't impact that exaggeration was occurring. A common problem in forums in general, and this forum in particular since the wave of complaints, is the use of extreme/absolute descriptions: never, always, none, all, nobody, everybody, etc. Heavy usage of exaggerated forms of expression in negatively describing or complaining about something is what characterizes a post as a whine. Such expressions are knowingly inaccurate and are too often used merely as a form of inflammatory shouting. They are the stuff of which flame wars are started and escalated, and frankly, have no place on a forum like this.

    And undoubtedly the use of such exaggerations by the complainers has resulted in the Community forums being largely ignored now by developers. The complainers are simply shouting at one another, not fully cognizant of the fact that their shouts are bouncing off vacant walls. :whistle:

  • just wait for Otter Browser to get stable version
    then this crippled Opera will be ditched forever

  • LOL... yup! And by the way: do you also sell phenomenal lots in Miami's everglades? :lol:

    And... you woken up from your silly little dream... version 23 and most features returned... more like version 83 if ever... guess you didn't pay to much attention to the current progress of blink opera.
    The sad thing is that a single person made greater progress(starting from 0) in half a year then the whole desktop team in over year(they probably started the work a lot earlier then the announcement - having chromium as a base)...
