From Terminal, enter one of these commands to disable automatic updating of Opera:
For stable: defaults write com.operasoftware.Opera OPDisableAutoUpdate true
For beta versions: defaults write com.operasoftware.OperaNext OPDisableAutoUpdate true
For developer versions: defaults write com.operasoftware.OperaDeveloper OPDisableAutoUpdate true
A zoom 'button' on the tool bar, with 1% granularity is an absolute must.
Can anybody advise the latest version that has that?
Is it my imagination, or does Opera get dumbed down a little bit every time a new version is released?
