This is a clear message to Opera Developers that you have taken away an essential usability aspect of the browser that users have relied on for years, and are now missing.
Why relocate it to some remote difficult location in the menu hierarchy? Was an incorrect assumption made that the recently closed pages/tabs button was not being used? Based on what data?
As an Opera user since version 3, and long time Developer and usability expert, I do speak up when I see a bad decision, and this is definitely one of them.
Please encourage the Developers to restore this essential feature in the near future. I used it regularly and it's obvious from the overwhelming consensus here, that I'm not alone.
