Why make all these changes? The old version worked perfectly for my use. Why does opening a new tab default to making a search. I prefer accessing the speed dial. Also, there is now less space on top to display tabs in tablet mode. I liked the cleaner, minimalistic look of the older version. When you make drastic changes like these, at least include the option to make the app look and behave like the old version. I have been using this browser for about 6 years, but will now look for alternatives.
No flash support! What good is it if i can't watch a video associated with a news article. isn't html5 supposed to fix this issue? Coder: but but but it's not our fault. BS.... ANYWAY...Good text wrap. Ad blocker works. Better browsing than dolphin browser because it was buggy and would hang. Also, user interface a bit clumsy on opera. Otherwise, this would be 5 stars. Needs more settings. Could use theme change like the lite version. 3 stars because it's better than most browsers.. Otherwise would be 2 stars for no solution for flash videos imbedded in pages.
Constant crashes and freezes. Rarely runs more than a few minutes without crashing. I'm on an LG Stylo with 2 gigs of RAM and a quad core processor, and I just want to be able to read the news. Can't even scroll without a crash. Opera Mini? Still works; try not to screw it up gang
Annoying "Opera" at the top of speeddial takes up space. I don't need a baked in news feed. Reload is in upper left? Menu moved to the bottom. How do you remove the history shortcuts that appear under the search bar?! Then there's another toolbar at the bottom of the home page. These things could EASILY be combined into one and give more screen space to the user. Now, bottom row of shortcuts on the speeddial page are hidden. Pages always being opened in new tabs. Crashes when you close the app. Insane!
Please put speed dial back on new tabs... It's like a broken tool now... Refresh a page, and close a tab is on left side (especially on tablet) ... must be nice for lefthanded people. I'm constantly closing tabs I want to look at. Would have thought the Opera devs, had learned by now that changing something perfect is a bonehead move...
I use it on daily basis and it's great BUT the only reason why I don't ditch Chrome completely, is the STARTUP TIME... It's almost double amount of Chrome. This can be annoying when you're in a rush. Looking forward to see it being fixed.
