If this forum is like any other there are people of all opinions. Last time I was here there was a huge flame vs the Opera Next move so I was assuming I wasn't the only one bitter but still keeping my opera in the hope things would get better.
Also you may acknowledge it's frustrating to see something done well in 2010 then utterly destroyed. My tone isn't kind for Opera but when you create a crowd of follower hooked by some unique features then remove all of those features for no tangible gain, you actually something really nasty, not "nasty like bitching in a forum" but the ergonomic equivalent of a violent slap on hundred of thousands of users.
Anyway the good thing is that I found a firefox plugins that does just that and even better. Goodbye Opera, I've loved your search engine via URL bar, your speed dial with refreshing thumbnails, your fully customisable UI, your per tab zoom, etc etc. But now others have that while you don't. There is not one single distinctive feature left in you, what were you expecting ?
For the record, if anyone want that too:
