Opera 29 Not as Bad as People Say

  • I have only been using 29 since it updated itself yesterday. So far I do not think it is as bad as some of the posts in the forum make it out. I do believe some additions could help remedy those problems.

    First, I want to say great job at getting things back to syncing across all of my devices. I am really happy that I can use the bookmarks in one browser instead of using Google Bookmarks. I also like the open tabs from other devices and the speed dial from other devices too. Great job devs!

    Second, a suggestion to help with the coloring complaints in speed dial. I think it would be awesome if we could set those colors and even opacity in a theme's ini file. If not there then maybe in the browser settings, but I would prefer the theme though. Right now I use a dark theme I created, so the white is not that bad. I changed it to another theme and it did not look so go, although a slight opacity would have helped it a lot.

    A third suggestion for speed dial. You let us pick the thumbnail image for bookmarks, allow us to do this in speed dial. Often I will keep that default one, but sometimes I will select a different one to set that item apart from others that might otherwise use the same default thumbnail.

    Opera is a great browser and is getting better. I really do appreciate the work you all do to bring us an excellent option when it comes to Internet browsers.
