I completely agree with scrabbleroad here. I started out with Opera in 1996, while reading something in PC Magazine, about this wondrous internet browser from Europe. So I climbed on board, and have used it as my primary browser ever since. From version 2 to either 5 or 6(I've forgotten) I happily laid down the $30 for each major upgrade.
Suddenly, without much fanfare, I was faced into a new Google based architecture, and my favorite one was placed on "also ran" status. So I did bite the bullet and am using both.
But now I am putting my old upstairs computer out to pasture, and need to transfer all of my bookmarks to my new one down in my basement shop. I've been through this new Opera, in search of a way to save my bookmarks on a USB device, and then transfer it to my new computer. Well, good luck on that one. I'm still pulling my hair out, and believe me at 72 I don't have much hair to spare.
What you guys have here is a camel. And as the saying goes, "A camel is a horse, made by committee". This entire process has been one huge Cluster Foxtrot after another, with something that would do any bureaucrat proud. So, here's what I am going to do. I'm going to move my Firefox browser from my backup browser to my primary one. And after all these years(19+) I am relegating Opera to the back of the bus.
One other little thing. I'm one of the very people who actually paid for the privilege of owning and operating the early Operas. I put my money where my mouth was. And It was those, such as myself, who made this browser such a joy to use. My point is that when any business fails to treat their original customers/followers as the most important entities they have, that is when that business is on the long slide into failure.
If you want to REALLY, REALLY be appreciated by one and all, I suggest some good old fashioned common sense, and "what if I was in this position" thinking. And before you all scoff and tell me to "go home old man", it is an attitude like that which will never serve you well in the future.
Color me totally frustrated and fed up.
