I must admit i didn't expect such interesting answers, thank you.
But, honestly, i'm not going to get into a bunch of arguments or ideals about what should it be, or how should it be.. I just can't do that from my perspective, neither should the rest of "us" (users) stress for that matter. It's going to be the way they make it.

This is going to take user patience to see what gets resolved/returned for the browser, and how it all plays. I've been telling others that it will be at least version 20 (and perhaps even 25) before users get a good sense of where the new Opera is ultimately headed and what the foundational limits of the engine versus developer skills may be with regard to "features" and customizability.
Along all what you said, i couldn't agree more. But i also couldn't agree more with jkhalilprince. To me, Opera was different than any other explorer. And now.. it's not.
There's a bunch of topics to be discussed, as in: features, appearance, stability, compatibility, performance, speed, resources (hardware) required, users, market, competition, and whatnot... which are all new now, so, comparing to our old neat stuff is not worth the trouble. Now we can only be optimistic and hope one day it gets to be similar to what it was, but better. And, we can also make ourselves clear in what we want.
Thats exactly why i meant my OP to look like a request, like a petition, i actually wondered if i would make it a poll.. and i should have.
What I want is Opera to be 'different', to be personal.
I want to feel again that comfort I had every time I opened My Opera.
