@leushino I think the problem is that, to the user, removing Bing as a default search seems capricious. One day it's default and the next day Bing has been replaced by DuckDuckGo. I do believe that Opera had their reasons, but they certainly ought to know how their userbase feels about it. And let me say that I like the addition of DuckDuckGo, but having DDG with Bing and Google is certainly better.
Yes, there will always be those melodramatics who deliver time-sensitive ultimatums to switch browsers as if they hold some kind of bartering chip, but I think the majority of users who take issue with this are willing to give it time to work itself out. If nothing changes within a few months time, we might start to consider other browser options that better suit our internet usage habits.
Opera doesn't need me as an individual user, but Opera does need rapport with their userbase as a whole. That's how a successful business usually works.
