What a load of rubbish. You have had a free ride for years (as have I). The company has not charged you to use its suite has it? Opera has always been a niche player in the desktop division and frankly it needed to change in order to survive. It's a BUSINESS not a charity. They have to make money. Shareholders have invested and they expect returns. Do you understand that? Conscience indeed! If you don't like the new Opera, use a former version. If you are concerned about security issues (and you shouldn't be just yet) then use another browser. But don't post such rubbish as you have above. Frankly, I'm ashamed of you.
I'd have to disagree. I can completely support Opera as a business but it is disrespecting its users right now. If Opera disabled adding custom searches, fine. If Opera did not allow a default search engine switch outside of per-installed, fine. If Opera did not allow the deletion of Scroogle, fine. But this is pure ignorance. Don't waste people's time. Either admit it's a screw up and a bug or say this is permanent.
