What happened between Opera 12 and Opera 19? Feedback

  • So I've been using Opera 12 for a long time now, I really liked it and I honestly thought it was the best browser I ever used. A few things I loved was the macro system, the stackable tabs, it's stability and most importantly it's excellent speed both when opening webpages and when running videos.

    I was looking around and I noticed eventually that my browser was extremely outdated so I updated to Opera 19, I'm extremely unimpressed. No stackable tabs is total inconvenience and I can't honestly understand why such a great feature was removed. Videos are buggy, the playback controls often don't work and whenever I try to drag a tab out to another monitor it's anyone's bet whether it will move, close or in the case of a video totally desynch with the browser. Hell it even annoyed me that images were auto gripping to the top left of the screen rather than in the centre like in Opera 12.

    There is frankly no way that I will possibly be inclined to use Opera 19, I found nothing appealing about it and no improvements over Opera 12. For now I won't be using Opera anymore, at least not the up to date versions. If I were to return Opera 19 would need stackable tabs, centred images, stable video playback and most importantly it would need to stop being so oversimplified, I liked the turbo boost option and the drop down settings tools.

    Overall the current version of Opera feels like a lazy product made for dimwits. You guys need to up your game if you want to be competitive with Firefox and Chrome.
