Just tried. Oh man, that is bad. Must be a regression surely?

RE: Microsoft switches to ChromiumLounge
@yanta I've only in the past couple of weeks moved from Firefox to Opera as default, after having been a Firefox user for over a decade.
Edge moving to Chromium is both a plus and a minus.
It's a plus as it makes developers and consumers lives easier re websites "working" more widely.
It's a plus because Microsoft will be adding code to Chromium, which provides a complement to Google's ideas and also could lead to improved behaviour and performance of all Chromium browsers on Windows, for example.
It's a minus because of the centralisation of bugs and security vulnerabilities.
RE: Microsoft switches to ChromiumLounge
I'm afraid Opera could lose market shares to Microsoft if MS should succeed in developing a browser with a nice UI and some useful additional features.
For myself it has proven quite hard to shift me from whatever has been my preferred browser. I was a Firefox user for well over a decade. I've now switched to Opera as default (although I still use Firefox). Edge will have to replicate the features of Opera that I've discovered to be compelling to get me to switch.
I should say though that I do not find any one browser to be superior to all other in all respects. Hence I have several installed and occasionally have a need to use one of the others - even Edge as it happens!
RE: Is there any way to customize the toolbar?Suggestions and feature requests
@stevencee moving the mouse over the magnifying glass lets you see the zoom level. Though it would be nice to be able to see at a glance what setting you're at.
You can also zoom in and out using one-click keyboard shortcuts. By default 0, 6, + and -. You have to enable one-click keyboard shortcuts first though.
Also Ctrl+ mouse wheel if on Windows.
RE: Opera must remove My Flow and News from the browser! It is useless to me!Suggestions and feature requests
@tioosaminha if you don't care for specific features then don't use them and/or disable them. Don't assume other users have no use for them. We are all different.
RE: Why Should We Suffer With Opera ?Opera for Windows
@lucasnorthmi51959 I have several browsers installed too. Main reasons are 1 I'm curious to see what they have to offer that's different from their competitors 2 I find that no one browser is better than all others in every respect. So, depending on context, I sometimes switch for specific tasks.
RE: Windows 7 vs Windows 10??Suggestions and feature requests
@bkdroid13 Windows 10 and then spend some time customising it to defer feature updates for as long as you possibly can. What you can do varies depending on whether it's Home or Pro that you have.
They've generally added more user control over time so, depending on what version you have initially, you might want to update as far as you can before locking down the update options.
Once you're going generally what you need to do is allow security fixes and (if desired) defer feature updates. It's the latter that will be more problematic if you're unlucky. Waiting as long as possible means a decreased chance of problems.
Personally, I haven't done that (though I like that I have the choice) but my policy is just to wait for Microsoft to deliver me updates. They usually appear some months after availability or sometimes not at all. E.g., they never delivered Creators Update but went straight to Fall Creators both on my desktop and laptop. I also never got 1809. And so far I haven't received 1903. I'm in no hurry!
RE: Full screen mode with tabs shownOpera for Windows
@leocg it would be nice if you could do that. The old Opera was more flexible in this, although I was only a very occasional user of the old Opera.
I think the way Firefox works in full screen mode is the way to go, but the other browsers don't do it.
I.e., move mouse to the top of the screen and the address bar and tabs become available.
RE: Make selected tab more visible in dark modeSuggestions and feature requests
@concretable A lot of the time I have too many tabs open to read them anyway (69 right now). I do quite often make use of tab search, which I'd probably use. Typing just a part of the page title or site name is generally enough to find what you want. The incremental search works well.
(I customised Opera so that the instant search does tab-search by default using F2).
