@coffeelover wow exactly my feelings, i signed in just for this, Opera used to be something great, something special, now it's just a better Google Chrome.
Opera user from the good old presto days, before chrome & the Chinese back when it was the best browser out there & no one ever heard of "Net neutrality", never really wanted to switch from Microsoft Windows 2000 ether, not that i think anyone will actually read this but i care & thats good enough for me.

RE: i'm disappointed with the implementation of the new 'save as PDF' feature, heres why.Suggestions and feature requests
Sorry if it was not clear enough the first time,
exactly my suggestions or requests
#1 combined 'Save as...' with 'save as PDF...'
opera://flags/?search=html#save-page-as-mhtmlenabled by default
i'm disappointed with the implementation of the new 'save as PDF' feature, heres why.Suggestions and feature requests
upon updating i'm greeted with some new features like 'Saving pages as PDFs' but the said option is not available though the O-Menu like it states
"To save a page as a PDF file, go to the O-Menu (or File on macOS) and select “Save Page as PDF.”"
i had to make a short cut, not so bad but after fiddling i discovered that right clicking now has the option
but why do i need two menu items for almost the same 'save this page' function, just having a 'save as...' & letting the user choose all the formats would be better as it's less duplication, not saying to remove the save as PDF feature as it's smaller than a .mhtml archive & has useful applications
(save as PDF...)
New year, new browser. Opera 50 introduces anti-Bitcoin mining tool - Opera Desktop.pdf6.2 MB
New year, new browser. Opera 50 introduces anti-Bitcoin mining tool - Opera Desktop.mhtml9.4 MB ! (perfect)
(Print to file)
New year, new browser.pdf5.6 MB (poor graphics translation!)
as for as usability gos the 'Print to file' does poorly compared to just a 'save as PDF...'
chrome://flags/?search=html#save-page-as-mhtmlenabled by default would be nice too, as this is how a currently accomplish saving web pages.
seems i love to hate opera these days, heck i liked presto better back in the day, hope i enlightened you & have a good day!
P.S. the like to the change log is down, after only six days & searching one finds nothing for 50

Features lost to time that should come backSuggestions and feature requests
Opera has changed a lot over the years, it once cost money, and was solely made by them, then was AD supported , now it's Google supported & chromium based,
then opera was bought by the chinese
how things change.
it lost a lot of what made Opera so great when they switched to a Chrome based (opera) browser. (they got better sense then though,)
but this is not one of those; new things are bad; just stay in the past; nostalgia posts,
i what a better future.
lost features that should come back:
-Bookmark management & options like
exporting bookmarks as an HTML file can do done with extensions
-History by the week/month
other then that i'm good
but it's Different now, the old ways are gone to time .... Right?
