  • Three reasons.

    Number 1: Have a look at Opera 15, the first new Opera release after Opera 12. Compare it to Opera 28. The difference is night and day.

    Number 2: If they weren't going to release improvements, why would they continue development at all? If they don't change anything it would be a new release.

    Number 3: I use the development release of Opera, which is currently version 30. I've been using it for several versions (since it first featured bookmarks). That is to say, I am in the future compared to everyone using the latest stable release. Every time they promote a build of Opera to development release they add features and improve existing ones. If past performance is any indication they will get around to it eventually.

    There were cases of crashes also.
