@sidneyneto: I think that's the biggest problem of "new Opera". People liked the old version because it was highly customizable. They made nice looking Speed Dial and ruined it in Opera 28 - that's the fact. Not all users need sync options, but at the same time for some of them nice looking Speed Dial makes a change. But they can't get it, even by changing the settings in Opera Flags page.
It's too bad that Opera Software ASA changed the philosophy of creating a web browser in such way...:(
