After using Opera for some time, I have concluded that the scrolling gesture with ELAN touchpad is just straight up garbage. I first thought, maybe that's how the scrolling on touchpads works for opera, but it seems like other laptops with different touchpads do not have this scrolling problem.
The problem that is occurring, is the horrible laggy and extremely unresponsive and slow scrolling while using the 2 finger gesture on Opera. On Chrome and other browsers, the ELAN touchpad scrolling works flawlessly, smoothly, responsive, and quick. With opera however, scrolling with 2 fingers basically barely goes any distance and is just unresponsive.
I recently switched from Chrome to Opera and based on using Opera for 3-4 weeks I have concluded this:
- Opera has much more features than Chrome and is very nice
- Opera has much more bugs compared to Chrome
- Chrome is more simpler and less buggy than Opera
- Opera has unresponsive touchpad scrolling with ELAN touchpad
Even though Opera is actually quite nice with just a bit of bugs, the scrolling with ELAN touchpad may be a deal breaker for me.
Using a mouse does indeed fix this problem, BUT, I bring my laptop to varieties of places for work and school Therefore I need to be able to just open up a browser and navigate with ease. and don't always have room for a mouse.
