Thats very good. I will take a look at the surveys.
I do not know how I feel about their data mining methods, there are some issues that could go without appraisal, such as features that are currently not implemented but would be desired by users. Also some individuals that do not feel comfortable with sharing data for whatever reasons but still would like to contribute. The forums sometimes are not a very effective method but do serve to fill the gap. Thanks for sharing the links.
You're right on, leushino. If that's the norm for the forum, good people want won't want to waste their time with it, and you will get more posts like that. We can do better here. Exactly what davehawley referred to, to "keep the spirit of Opera alive," and also, of this forum that for many years was one of the best around. Well, probably the "best."
Now, if they could give us a better forum search engine, we all might become inspired to improve our posts. As it is, even if someone writes a post like the great William Shakespeare on the Opera browser (surely the bard would have liked Opera -- Presto and Blink) :), why the current forum search vehicle would never be able to find it. Imagine something. à la Hamlet, as great as "to browse or not to browse, that is the question," lost forever. All I could say to why the search vehicle here is bad is, to quote the bard, "something is rotten in Denmark," though my apologies to any Danish forum users here I may have offended with that.
