I still keep going back to v 12.16 because each version gets worse as far as stability, etc. I installed v 20 and it wouldn't open ANY web sites. NONE. Each tab (I had 3 open) said that the site was either unavailable or offline. Never mind that I was able to go to each of those sites in Opera 12.16 (32 bit), Chrome, FF and even IE with NO problems. I tried shutting everything down (even going so far as to check in my Task Manager) and rebooting. Same sad story. Combine the instability with the features that were stripped out but should be standard (seriously, no Home page button? Are you f***ing kidding me????), and Opera has gone from being the best browser out there to the worst. Hell, IE is even better now. Maybe Opera should hire some devs who know what they're doing.

RE: Customizing the Toolbar in Opera 18?Opera for Windows
Wow. The staff at Opera claims to listen to the needs of the people using their browser, but the facts speak differently. Like the FACT that I can't do something as simple as adding a Home button, or Print button to my toolbar. I loved Opera since the earliest versions. Now it's a nightmare. Virtually no compatibility with major sites either. Looks like I'm going to switch to Chrome. Opera lost the browser wars (ignore the marketing BS). What a sad example of how NOT to run a browser company.
