Dear Opera team
I firstly used Opera on my Nokia 6300 which was a great experience and I couldn't find a better browser when I moved to Android.
A year ago I put my negative review to Opera containing my complains about the usability of the programme, and thankfully after 4 months they were finally ironed out, and honestly since then I didn't look at any browser other than Opera, and was hyped when the UI update was teased, yet unfortunately it messed up a lot on functionality.
I'll start with the tabs since it is the one that gets me the most, for some reason you decided to let the quick access tab opened all the time, which is annoying and makes me lose count of the tabs I open sometimes since it counts it as a tab.
Also when I want to open a speed page dial I can't just open it in a new tab because if I don't type a search or a website it will automatically close the tab that I just opened which is so random in my opinion, I know there's a home button that takes me to the quick accessed but for some reason it feels strange to close the tab just because I don't want to write.
Then the removal of history from the main screen, honestly it took me a minute or two to find it, not to mention that it being in the left just feels normal, a suggestion is to add it to the new channels so users can add it or remove it with ease.
And finally the new icon in the right bottom corner replacing the settings, it's a nice touch although I think its positioning is strange (maybe because I am used to settings be there) I wish there would be an option to put the settings there and merge the new menu into the settings list, in addition to choosing (or rearranging) the initial page you land on when opening it.
That's the feedback I have on the new browser, hopefully my suggestions will be taken into consideration.
