Nice while it lasted

  • I have to say I am totally disappointed with the new opera. Everything from it funky bookmark layout to I cant access which password I want to use. I have multiple email accounts with yahoo. Also have multiple passwords for other facebook accounts and it automatically loads one and it isnt mine and have noway of picking mine. I also liked the interface with the older opera. I felt I had much more control of storage and cookies. I tried several times to work with the new one but its just horrible. I have been using opera for years and this is the first time I have had any issues in using the updated browser. Just needed to tweak the old one not rewrite the whole thing.

    The interface was not the problem with the old Opera, it was the rendering engine. It was no longer worth maintaining. The problem was that the interface and the renderer were not separable. If one went everything else had to be changed too. It wasn;t something they could just 'tweak' to make work.

  • Well thats a shame, I always liked opera as it wasnt loaded with all the garbage that other browsers came with. Simple and fast. My search for a new browser begins, if anyone has any suggestions let me know thanks.

    You mean like the built in email, IRC, RSS reader, sessions, ad blocker, mouse gestures, voice support, and widgets? You are aware that Opera had probably the most built in stuff of any browser on the planet right? The new Opera is much more pared down by comparison. That said, if you want a browser with a ton of built in stuff Vivaldi is headed up by one of Opera old devs and is gearing itself to take over were Opera 12 left off. Its just a tech beta so its not quite ready for prime time, and I use the dev channel release of Opera 29 so thats saying a lot, but it might be what you are looking for.

    Click the username field and press the down arrow (or the first letter of your username), you should see a list of saved accounts. Click the one you want and that's going to autofill the password.

    you confuse features with bloat. Modern browsers have a bloat issue, more so due to the way features are added; we call it "progress."

    Actually, "bloat" is what users call features they themselves don't use. Users who do employ such features call them "essential". And so it goes... ;)
