Panels

  • i was just wondering how i would get the left panel up on my screen?

  • Use Opera version 12. It is the last version to support panels.

  • Opera 12 isn't being worked on anymore. It's slower, can't access as many sites at Opera 25, doesn't have the Speed Dial with folders or the Discover function. Yes, you get panels in it, but is that the be all and the end all for you. Opera 25 is the version of Opera that is being developed. Opera 12 is not.

  • lem, some people just don't get it. Oh... in time they will but for the moment all they can focus on is what pet feature from their Presto version was not included in the Blink version and beyond that single-mindedness they are blind. Panels are so yesterday. Netscape had a sort of panel feature way back but you don't find that in today's popular browsers. There's no need for it. But by all means, continue to use an older, no-longer-developed browser and continue to experience sites that will not load properly simply because you cannot (or will not) adapt.

  • Opera is now blink based, so it's gone. But I hope they will follow Slimjet's example and will integrate sidepanel again someday.

    So tell me why Firefox has a sidepanel? And up to that it is a very popular browser. It has Bookmarks and History, and with extensions you can have vertical tabs. It looks like you just don't get it. "there is no need", "it's so old fashioned", "it's so geeky" all that are just excuses. Maybe Devs are not willing to touch chromiums code too much?
    Slimjet chromium based browser has bookmarks sidepanel so why not Opera? It was a very strong point feature in Presto.

  • leushino ... with all due respect, "Panels are so yesterday."

    I disagree. I've used Panels for my bookmarks for years.

    At least the present version of Opera has them and there are also extensions that mimic the bookmarks panel.
    It may not be perfect, but it is usable.

  • You've used for years translates into - they've been around a very long time. The most popular browsers don't bother with them because they're not needed. And if there are extensions that mimic them then all the more reason for the developers to move on to more important things.
