I've been using Opera for something like 15 years - it was brilliant. 12.6 is struggling with some websites, so somehthing needed doing. Maybe this new one will be good one day, but it is totally unusable for what I need it now! Have Opera panicked and brought this out before it was ready - it's like a beta release, and will ruin Opera's reputation if it isn't fixed QUICK.
Features that are missing or screwed up include:
- not able to search for words on a page any more
- view source does not export it to a text editor (I can't use Opera as a development tool if it won't do that, it's no good having to view source in an Opera tab and then copy and paste - take about 5 times a long and then I have to save the damn thing before I can check it with CSE HTML Validator
- the ad blocker built into the old Opera was far better than having to use Adblock
- old Opera had a brilliant password manager - Last Pass is all very well, but a pain in the a..e to use
- customizable notes in old Opera - where's that gone?
- Speed Dial - can't get more than 6 columns - it shows up to 9 in the selector, but stops at 6 in real life!
- Help is now crap - it just seems to go for pages about bookmarks whatever I search for - what's that all about?
Come on Opera, get your act together or I will (reluctantly) have to try and find a usable browser elsewhere if v12 becomes unusable.
