Is there a way you can put an option in the Opera settings to disable discrete graphics switching? I hardly ever use web sites with high-performance-graphics requirements, except perhaps when visiting one that has a video ad or something that triggers Opera to switch.

How do you disable scroll wheel zoom?Opera for Mac
I would like to disable scroll wheel zoom, the feature where you hold down the Option key and scroll to zoom in or out.
Whenever I switch tabs using the ⌘⌥→ or ⌘⌥← keyboard shortcuts, the "inertia" left behind from a recent scroll action (on OS can cause the page to zoom in unintentionally.
Opera for Surface Tablet / Metro UIOpera for Windows
I was wondering about the plans for making Opera touch-friendly for Windows tablets like my Surface Pro 3.
The market for a good touch-friendly browser on Windows 8 is wide open. Right now the only major browser that has good touch support is Internet Explorer. Chrome has a Metro UI mode, but its touch support is lacking; for example, it does not respond to pen input (IE lets you select text with the pen), and the UI is still mostly the same as the desktop UI (the browser chrome is not optimized for fingers).
If Opera had great support for Metro UI and touch gestures, I would switch to it today. Currently I'm stuck on IE for the reasons listed above.
