Option to Completely Disable Discover Please

  • Please Opera. I love your browser but add an option to completely disable discover!

    I use Opera as my work browser and I don't want a digital distraction that is so easily accessible inside the browser.

    Thank you.

  • Wow. Just wow.

    How Discover can distract you? If you don't want to use it, just don't click on the button.

  • Save me from myself?

  • Got some real wise asses here , guy asked a legit question , answer it or move on.

    That's certainly debatable, if only because he's not "asked a question". He's requested an addition/change to the browser feature set and thus to its code (and requested it in Opera's problem-solving forum, not its suggestion-box forum). As a suggestion, it has to stand in comparison to the many other requested changes to the browser, and on that basis, it will be judged by other readers based on its relative importance - or lack thereof.

    Moreover, nearly every website, even the most serious, offers some form of "distraction" to a viewer. The key is learning to ignore them, whatever and wherever they are - whether in the browser or at the sites.

  • I did not realize this is a tech support forum. Thought this was a "discussion" and anything related to Opera could be discussed. Just wanted to request a feature.

    Yes, not clicking on a distraction is a part of it, but you also want to minimize the opportunity to click on it and make it more difficult to access. Technology makes it very easy to go from working on a report to browsing facebook or reading the news. You want to make it more difficult. You can laugh at me, but this strategy helps me and other people be more productive and waste less time at work.

  • it is distraction
    I have 4 (soon 5) instead of 3 buttons which I need
