"YAAAAWN! Do we really need to do this 'I hate new Opera' over and over again? As leushino says the new Opera is here to stay so either live with it or move on to another browser."
Are you kidding? It is not a matter of hatred, the matter is that I (and it seems that I am not alone) liked Opera 12.17 and I don't like Opera 24. As for now, Opera seems to be just the elder brother of Chrome. But if I wanted a Chrome-styled browser, I'd download Chrome, not Opera!
Now, I don't want to offend anyone. Chrome 24 is more reliable, and I can't deny that; I don't have to reload the pages several times before actually see what I am browsing for, and the notifications on Google+ are displayed properly, as example.
Yet, I can't help but to wonder whether or not a better browsing experience could have been achieved without losing pretty much everything of the old Opera, this is just what I am asking. And, if you think all of those who think as me to be haters, feel free not to comment, I won't be offended by your silence.
