I've had enough. You've just lost another user. It was bad enough that with version 15 we lost everything but just as I get everything just the way I want you have to go and F*ck things up.
First of all the bookmark manager still sucks. And the lack of options in Speed dial. At first that stupid bar at the bottom was at the top and bearly visible but then you darkened it and jammmed it at the bottom of the window.
You could set the columns at one time to 2 and make the dials small so your background theme could show through. Now you limited to 3 columns and you cannot adjust the size so what is the point of the themes anyway. Especially your own custom ones when everything is blocked by those damn dials.
Then it's the automatic updates, the real deal killer in my case. I don't use Chrome for the reason that they don't give me any easy control of the updates. I've had to restore my Opera program to many times down from version 29 to 28.
I deleted the autoupdate programs and the update task only to have that bloody thing still update on me. I don't go to about:config because I know that can trigger an update.
Now I've discovered that just going to the settings can trigger an update. Thank you for respecting me as a user. One final note I finally found a way to control the updates, I just uninstalled Opera completely.
I'm currently using Seamonkey. You can delete this account to I will not be using it anymore.
