The final dealbreaker with me and v.31 was that when I went to save a web page, there was no longer the option to save it as an mht archive. Why? What the hell has gone wrong with Opera? There are so many things in 31 that are broken or nonexistent compared with 12.17, they are not even vaguely the same browser. I cannot fathom why all this has happened. I've been a loyal fan of Opera for nearly 20 years, and I'm sadly going to have to bail out. What a shame.

RE: Opera Browser suddenly extremely laggy! 12.17Opera for Windows
@scottls59901 You are a software tech? I wouldn't be letting you anywhere near my machine. I got here because I am having the exact same issue as the OP, but it is after I foolishly upgraded to Opera 31. I really tried, but gave up on it after realizing how sadly deficient it really is. I have been using Opera since version 3.61 back around 1996, and I have been a loyal fan, just loving it, bugs and all. I was pushed into upgrading 12.17 to 31 because of a site that broke Opera's password manager and I got sick of having to type in the password all the time. The password manager worked ok, no problem there, but the list of things that don't work anymore is too long to go into here. I ended up uninstalling 31 and going back to 12.17, which was still there after the "upgrade" came and went. But now, pages take forever to load, I don't see any reason for this, but I am dismayed. I have to join those who are shaking their heads and wondering why Opera has lost its way. I could almost cry. Why did they abandon all the previous effort, and then throw out the baby with the bath water. I don't know what to do now, I don't like any of the other browsers, except Maxthon, but it has some issues as well. I'm certainly not going to use IE. Is there still an IE?
