I've been using Opera as my browser for the last 10+ years. I've seen new features come and other features go.
But since 2020, I don't know which update, you are seriously annoying me.
Every week some random messenger crap pops up on the sidebar.
A ) I'm not using the sidebar so I have it disabled
and B ) I'm not using any messenger.
So why does it keep re-enabling itself without asking me?
There's a reason I set my configuration the way I want it.
Stop trying to be Microsoft who "knows what's best for their users."
Just let me use my own browser the way I want to in peace.
Else I'll be leaving Opera behind for good.
