Wow, what a difference since changing from whatever version of Opera I last had. That previous version was fast, stable, usable, and completely smoked any browser I've ever used.
First question, how can I tell exactly what version I switched from to this current state of affairs? Perhaps it's petty to complain like this about free software, but the new version ...I can't stand it. I need to switch back.
My main complaint is that when I tap the URL/search box and begin typing a new query, the first character rarely shows up. If I tap and type Google.com, I end up with oogle.com. This NEVER happened with the old version and it's driving me crazy now! It might have been manageable but this current "upgrade" just lags so much on my phone anyway that the whole experience is aggravating.
Also can I turn off instant search suggestions?
Why is it that this version reloads tabs whenever I switch back and forth? The old version rarely did that, and I could seriously have over 90 tabs open at a time. Yes, that's necessary for me.
The absurdity of this is I tried giving feedback not long after downloading this new version but the Opera browser seemed to have compatibility issues with the Opera feedback page. Please help, I don't want to switch to some lousy Chrome or Firefox app!
