This new Opera is ridiculously bad

  • 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 “Search before posting.”

    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)...
