So I'm still using Opera 12, for reasons I'm suspect I don't need to explain (although note I don't use mail and can live without a lot of the extensions).
What I'd like to know is whether Opera 26 is looking like worth trying?
It claims to have bookmark import (I have a lot of bookmarks, I save all my research links there).
Note I really need my bookmarks sorted in my chosen order, a forced order would be a show-stopper.
I assume it will import all my saved passwords and sessions okay?
What do people think?
just jumped from 12 to 26, not satisfied. No ctrl-z, no trash bin for recently closed pages, settings are a joke (example: search engine in speed dial page cannot be removed?). That's only basic stuff which should have been there because previous versions already had them and users were comfortable with them. Updates should add features not remove those that make your product better and distinguish it from your competitors. Opera was best for providing built-in stuff that other browsers (ie firefox) needed tweaking and extensions to provide them. Opera was best because it introduced tabbing, it had the magic wand, the trash bin and all that shitload of features that made it stand out and above the "same shit different brand name" competition. I understand that in need to lower the overall development costs they had to ditch their engine and leave the development to others with more resources (aka Google) but it's over a year now and this is basic stuff that's still missing. They end up alienating their old user base and target at what? New users? Casual users? Oh well.
