@leocg are you willing to dwell on the philosophical debate over the topic of whether the removal/change of a particular configuration of an existing feature is considered the removal of a feature, hahah ? Or maybe the debate over the topic of "what is the definition of a word -feature-", if it comes down to that?
On a side note... I'm somewhat surprised someone replies to this forum post - I'd thought this thing was long abandoned, but apparently some still don't want to accept the fact that Opera never went back on this interface change. Well, and I've never gone beyond version 58 as a conscious choice and maybe a bit of a protest, I guess. Anyway, I think this change was (and still is) stupid and unnecessary, but I don't have much hope they'll do anything about it since this topic is over a year old already.
