  • I agree with everyone who says the speed dial sucks. And it is bad enough to abandon Opera after all these years.
    Opera does not seem to care or want to listen.

  • I quite like it. If you don't. change your preferences for a different start page and never click the icon!

  • In version 29 you can't refresh the Speed Dial images on the Speed Dial page (right click the thumbnail and choose refresh in 28 and earlier).

    Changing the setting as linked by helpful users (above) to the old Speed Dial restores this functionality.... (it lets me see what pages have changed and choose where to go) - its literally the key reason that drew me to Opera....so please folks, don't take the old speed dial functionality away, its why I'm here. Thanks....

    Then you are in the wrong place. The devs don't get around here much. You are much more likely to get traction by posting a comment soon after a release announcement on the Opera blog. This is just a user support forum.

  • This is just a user support forum.

    Except for Suggestion box and Lounge.

  • I understand that Opera is free... although there was a time you were required to buy a license and I did. But these speed-dial changes that Opera keeps surprising end users with are not only annoying, but provide an obstacle to those people who do real work with their browser.

    I have been using opera for over twenty years and honestly, I don't think Opera really gives a damn about their end users. Imagine if Microsoft or Google treated their user base with such disregard. Come to think of it isn't that what happened with Windows 8, but at least in that case you had the ability to stay with windows 7.

  • Opera keeps surprising end users with

    Yeah, if only they had some kind of 'development blog' that users could go to and see what is coming...

    I have been using opera for over twenty years and honestly

    So you've been using it since before it was even released? Wow please tell me more about how awesome you are.

    Imagine if Microsoft or Google treated their user base with such disregard.

    I see you've never tried to get free support from either of those companies. If you don't pony up cash they wont give you the time of day.

    Look, you are angry. We understand. But we also we don't care. This isn't the place you come to if you want to cry about how things are changing and you don't like it, how the world is passing you buy, how you don't understand anything anymore and those damn kids that wont get off your lawn. If you don't want to install updates fine; turn them off. If you read the posts on this forum you'll find three or four threads on the first page alone that show how to do that. But if you just what to moan and complain you can leave. You have two posts on that profile so its clear you haven't been asking how to fix these problems.

    Opera began in 1994 as a research project at Telenor, the largest Norwegian telecommunications company. In 1995, it branched out into a separate company named Opera Software ASA. Opera was first released publicly with version 2.0 in 1996, which only ran on Microsoft Windows.

    Lando, don't be too picky.
    Besides, he might've used v.1 or something*;)*

  • I'm having a similar problem. I was trying to create a webstore on this website www.jarafel.com. Problem is that Opera isn't displaying well. But Chrome works with no problems. I wish I could use Opera instead because it is faster than Chrome in my opinion.

  • I too am getting annoyed with the number of changes, which seem to be only for the sake of change.

    I know we can do manual updates to versions but we shouldn't have to avoid the blizzard of changes.

    I too have been developing a website, 100% zoom in new opera is way bigger than in any other browser including opera 12. I stopped testing in opera. What a waste of time
