Today Opera developer has been updated to version 30 (30.0.1812.0). For this release we will continue to work on our extension sidebar implementation (already 20 sidebar extensions have appeared). We are also working to improve the features hidden behind various flags that have yet to be enabled. As always, there will be more information on those features when we set the flags to be on.

Our changelog provides a full list of fixes thus far. As always with the first release in a cycle, we have bumped Chromium by a major version (to 43.0.2327.5).

At the start of a release cycle, some things can be a little rougher around the edges as we make the architectural changes needed to move things on. Therefore, there are a few known issues you should be aware of:

Known issues

  • Drop downs do not display correctly in HiPDI environments on Windows and Linux
  • The dialog shown for invalid certificates is displayed in wrong place on Mac
  • Incorrect preview behavior when switching tabs with keyboard shortcuts
  • Incorrect icon not shown in the title bar in some window managers under Linux
  • The about page on Windows says, “developer developer”

We have also had a couple of internal reports of out of memory crashes and (on Linux) failure to start on some distros. Let us know if you also experience these issues below, so we can see how widespread the problems actually are.

  • L33t4opera

    Congrats on the first release of the Opera developer 30 😉

    Two new flags:
    – opera:flags#sync-history: enables synchronization of URLs typed into the address bar and history deletion actions,
    – opera:flags#standalone-discover-page – it seems, that it doesn’t work for the time being.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      You slept long today, didn’t you? 🙂

      • L33t4opera

        I am recently a bit busy with other things, and everything indicates, that I will be even more busy, in the near future, and thus, even less time to sleep: P

        • Cqoicebordel

          If I guess right, congrats !!!

          • Are you guessing a new Opera hire? Because I’m guessing a new Opera hire.

          • Cqoicebordel

            Not at all.

            My guess was closer to that he cloned itself in a tinier and louder form 😉

          • Oh! I see. Then his days of sleeping are over, I guess.

  • INFINUM

    Anniversary!

  • Dave-H

    Indeed, it’s only a number, but a milestone of sorts!

  • Zik

    Thanks for update to 30.

    In previous version I noticed very useful Ctrl+Tab with dropdown Tab Menu.

    I think you can return Right Mouse Button + Wheel Scroll in the same way with Tab Menu and Tab Preview.

  • Zik

    Found out that symbol of bugfix is not displayed. http://i.imgur.com/qOxdkmj.png

    • which platform are you one?

      • Zik

        Hmm, should be problem on my side, I use Win TP 10 build 10041.

        By the way. In this build of Windows I lost my 1-line-pixel-on-top.

        • Marcin Mitek

          You are using TP build of Windows 10, expect that it’s not working properly. I have a slightly older build (9926) and the line above tabs is there.

  • gregorweber

    Please restore the power user option to adjust speed dial thumbnail size. New start page thumbs are huge. Oh, and if you could make that white background on folders transparent?

  • Wando Schneider

    The tabs preview began to appear when switching between tabs with the keyboard (CTRL + TAB)… it was removed a long time ago.. and now is back again. Regression?

    • You read the blog post, right?

      • Wando Schneider

        Of Course Ruarí. I was afraid it wasn’t a bug 🙂

        • Well it is and it isn’t. You should not be seeing a preview with Ctrl+Tab in this build but we do have some behaviour changes for Ctrl+Tab lined up.

          • Wando Schneider

            I’m glad to read that 🙂 . The only thing i point out of show the preview with keyboard, is that it slows down the usability.. i need to release the keys to switch tabs (we discuss this back then, and i think you already know what i’m saying).

  • scarious

    there is problem with gmail, single gmail tab takes up to 30% of cpu: https://i.imgur.com/3q28VXI.png (cpu: i7-3610qm, os: windows 10 build 10041)

    • Marcin Mitek

      Is it constantly using 30% of CPU? Could you reset all the flags, disable extensions and check again?

      • Zik

        I can report that single tab of twitch.tv even on offline channel is using 30% of CPU with complete clean profile.

      • scarious

        Yes, it actually uses more than 30%. It looks like this in task manager: https://i.imgur.com/LxHSROd.png and I have disabled extensions and reset all flags. When I close gmail tab CPU usage immediately jumps down to almost 0%.

        • Marcin Mitek

          Hmm. That’s weird, I checked on some laptop i3 CPU from two years ago and it stays on 0%. (But it’s a clean installation, you might wanna check that and see if it still reproduces). On a dirty profile on more powerful CPU I get max at 4% when scrolling, 0% when the tab is idling.

  • Zik

    My Ctrl+Tab is not working. What I should turn on or off?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Not working here too. And it have been happening since a few builds.

      • Could you try going into keyboard shortcut mappings and reset defaults?

        • of

          Yes, that works!

        • Zik

          It works, thank you.

        • L33t4opera

          It works, but why the whole contents of the “Preferences” file is packed now, into one, long line? 😉

          • I don’t know but that is pretty funky and probably not intended. Thanks for pointing it out.

          • L33t4opera

            No problem Ruarí, it’s always a pleasure, when I can be helpful 😉

          • I don’t know but that is pretty funky and probably not intended. Thanks for pointing it out.

            Ok, I was wrong, it was intended. Chromium devs were planning to add a switch to handle the old behaviour but it looks like they then changed their minds.

            Its a bit of a shame but I certainly appreciate and understand the reasons they do it.

            This should result in about 30% size reduction of those files and it should contribute to slightly faster startup/shutdown

            On the plus side I can kinda work around it by using python for pretty printing.

            Windows (with Python 2.7.X is installed in the standard location):

            Python27python.exe -mjson.tool “%appdata%Opera SoftwareOpera DeveloperPreferences”

            Mac:

            python -mjson.tool ~/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.OperaDeveloper/Preferences

            Linux:

            python -mjson.tool ~/.config/opera-developer/Preferences

            You might also like jq if you need to work with and edit json files from the terminal.

          • L33t4opera

            Ok, thanks, I see the point, so it seems, that from now, it will be the tools way, or even more geeky way to play with the settings in this file 😉

        • Leonardo Gomes

          It’s working now. Thanks.

        • luator

          Solved the issue for me, thanks.

        • Петър Петров

          Yep, it works now. Even the preview works and the new dropdown with tabs that appears on the right makes it a lot more usable. Thanks!

    The spinning wheel when loading a page is spinning faster than normal, and it also bugs the audio animation on tabs: http://i.imgur.com/zyyXnFS.gif

    • ricksper

      Yes, but not on all sites. Also loading on many sites takes eternity to finish. That’s been happening for a while.

      • SuperTommy

        Yes, it’s only happening sometimes, but I haven’t seen a clear pattern. It happens randomly, so no spesific sites for me.

  • thebluefootednewt

    Why I can’t see sidebar extendions page addons.opera.com from other browsers? I want to see the new ones, while I can’t use Opera developer for a now 🙂

    • Marcin Mitek

      Only Opera developer supports them for now and that’s why they are only available to this channel.

      • Nekomajin43

        Beta is good too…

        • reesmichael1

          It certainly makes sense if the sidebar flag is enabled, but I’m sure there’s no way for addons.opera.com to check if a particular flag has been enabled. It does seem like there needs to be a better solution for us beta users who would like to install extensions without copy-and-pasting links between OD and OB.

          • Nekomajin43

            You can download the nex file from the addon catalog, go to developer mode in the extension manager and drop the nex file into the manager. But your solution is better.

      • I get that my suggestion about just putting a message there about Opera’s coolness didn’t make it through? 😉

  • Cqoicebordel

    There is something I don’t understand :
    Didn’t you (Opera) start a new browser from scratch to have a clean architecture for the future ?
    Because if it was planned right, it shouldn’t be necessary to do architectural changes to add more features.

    So, what is the issue here : A non planned feature ? A bad architecture ? Something else I didn’t think of ?

    • Changes are still needed from time to time. You can’t predict everything you will require right from the get go, until the end of time.

      • Cqoicebordel

        I asked because it seemed to me that it was often that in the new build description you (opera) talked about architecture changes.

        And I agree that you can’t predict everything, but a good architecture should be polyvalent enough to handle easily those kind of changes.

        So I was (am) still afraid that the new Opera wasn’t build for the long future, but more for the near one.

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Thanks, Ruarí, and congratulations with v.30!

    A couple of notes on the netinstaller:
    1. Going by the time it downloads the update, it must be getting the full package, not a diff one.
    2. When it reported that it had failed to get the update, there was the button “Receive the full package.” Pressing it launched Internet Explorer, surprisingly, because the default browser was Opera dev, as always.

    P.S. At my work, I’m behind a proxy. Automatic updates fail. I usually run netinstaller. This time, it failed to update. I’m not sure whether it was just a temporary issue and whether it is related to “DNA-26049 Netinstaller fails to update when bundle owned by another user”.

    • 1. The net installer does use the full package. It has to really as it doesn’t know which Opera install you are going to update. If you want a binary patch update then you should use auto-update. You can trigger it by opening the about page. If this is failing then there is a bug. Feel free to report it with as much information as you are willing to share.

      2. If netinstall fails for some reason the link to the full package will indeed open the system supplied browser. When our own code has failed to manage the download it makes sense to try something else to maxmise the chances of downloading successfully.

      P.S. That is a Mac only issue.

      • Dmitry Kirin

        1: OK, thanks. I’ll pay more attention to the issue when the next update arrives. Today I was just too eager to get the new version. =)
        2: Sounds wise indeed. Good to know it’s the intended behaviour.

  • Data Keeper

    REGRESSION AGAIN:
    This version start its child tasks in background priority.
    – When CPU is busy (100%) it takes ages to load a tab (even opera:settings).
    – This was fixed few releases ago (all sub-process was load into normal priority) and back again in this version and the latest dev version.
    – Is there a opera flag, so Opera loads it child processes (tabs) in same priority as the master opera process?

    I have desktop station with Intel Core i7 (Win7 used as 3D rendering station).

    I can NOT use opera browser when a render process is running (the render process takes 100% of all 7 CPUs Cores).

    The reason of this – the opera child processes have lower priority level (now it is Background).

    Three dev versions ago it was Normal level (and it worked perfect).

    Is there a opera:flags to fix child operas processes priority to Normal level or I should use other browsers that works (like old opera, Maxthon or IE)?

    THAT IS AWFUL PROBLEM REPORTED FEW TIMES and was fixed, but it come again.

    The last two opera devs could work only if everything else is stopped.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      How is the behaviour in Chrome?

      • Data Keeper

        The latest Chrome work perfect. It uses Normal priority to load its child processes.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Which OS? I’m not seeing this issue with Windows 10.

      • Data Keeper

        Win7 on Intel Core i7+SSD. When CPU is
        loaded to 100% the background processes do not respond. When I set manually process priority
        to Normal (with process explorer) – it load web page contents immediately.

  • Jorton

    it should not be “Opera developer developer 30.0” shown in opera://about/.

  • kapsi

    It would be nice if hiding the sidebar remembered the last open extension, like it worked with panels in O12. Now when you hide the sidebar and open it again, you have to again open the extension.

  • reesmichael1

    We have also had a couple of internal reports of out of memory crashes and (on Linux) failure to start on some distros.

    I’m not personally experiencing these (yet), but out of curiosity, is there any chance that you removed a flag in this version? Last summer, shortly after the first Opera Linux release, I encountered a problem where a flag that I had enabled was removed from Opera, which caused Opera to fail to start without any error messages. Deleting that flag from my Preferences file fixed the issue.

  • does not open on Yosemite 10.10.2 after installiation

  • reesmichael1

    Also, I haven’t encountered these rendering problems yet, so it does seem like it was related to the Chromium issue linked to in that thread, which was fixed between the last release of OD 29 and this release.

    • Veger

      Today I was able try for myself, and indeed do not have these problems anymore!

  • ricksper

    Still, this problem.
    Reset all flags to default. PDFs won’t open, Print functions work OK.
    Set Out-of-process PDF to Disabled, PDFs open, Print functions do not work.

    • Andrew Andreyuk

      ffmpeg version?

    • Andrew Andreyuk

      works fine with ffmeg 2.6.1. ubuntu 14.04

    • It is supported but the browser does not report that we support it to websites, which causes compatibility issues. I’ll add it to known issues for the next developer release if we have not fixed it by then.

  • plague

    I’m not sure on which build this happened exactly, but I see that the Tabs page now always has the tabs of “This computer” available, even without signing in (which was a requirement before).
    Thank you for that. 🙂

    Hi, Opera Team, please tell me how to remove the extra unnecessary search bar on the start page. And please work on Opera 100. Looking forward to that. Thanks.

            Haha, holy sexyness. Thanks. Too bad there’s no option to remove the small search one in the corner (not that it’s really obtrusive). Not many options, but thanks!

          • ayespy

            The little search in the corner is just to search speed dial for the shortcuts within it.

          • Hylian Ticipated

            Thanks for the tip, bro/sis.

          • ayespy

            Bro. De nada.

          It’s not a joke. That’s how you reveal settings to lose the search bar.

          • Hylian Ticipated

            Snap!

    • Hylian Ticipated

      And I don’t appreciate Tab Menu being enabled. Messing with my settings, Opera Team. Flag doesn’t disable it and my OCD makes me believe it was never ticked and now my head’s a mess and I can’t believe things.

On my laptop I got this fixed by removing Opera completely and installing it again, after a while I have this same problem appear on my desktop.

    I’ve had this happen on both my laptop and (after some time) desktop using Opera 29 and 30.

    • Dmitry Kirin

      It’s a known issue. All drop downs won’t open. Still navigable with up & down arrows.

  • Michał Gołębiowski

    What’s the story behind NPAPI? Chrome disables it from 42+ which is what Opera 29+ will be using. I still see NPAPI plugins listed at about:plugins, but the enable-npapi flag is marked as “Default (disabled)”. That’s confusing, what’s up?

    P.S. I reported it as DNA-36477.

    • Rafael Luik

      It’s a gradual process. It’ll be disabled by default (to allow people who really need it to use it while the plug-in makers rewrite their plug-ins), then the code to support NPAPI will only be removed from the Chromium source code by the end of 2015.

      Its usage is almost dead anyway… Flash is already PPAPI and Java usage should be about 3% right now and it’s the only relevant plug-in from the top used.
      http://blog.chromium.org/2014/11/the-final-countdown-for-npapi.html

      • Michał Gołębiowski

        I know, I just see it enabled by default in Opera even though the flag to re-enable NPAPI is disabled.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          There is a flag to disable npapi that is disabled. So the flag being disabled means that npapi is enabled.

          • Michał Gołębiowski

            Right, apparently I can’t read. 😛 I somehow assumed the flag is identical to the Chrome one.

    When will be Opera Mail updates? Is the project completely gone?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Opera Mail is no longer being developed.

      • Sergey

        Sorry, I answered about it in above comments 🙁 And I can’t delete it.

        It’s sad because Opera Mail was one of the light and fast desktop email client. It’s only always suffering from absence of export/import tools for Addresbook. So I had to write “openoffice basic macros” to convert it’s Contact.adr file to CSV-compatible view.

        Also I think about writing masros to convert CSV-file to OperaMail addressbook-file for importing contacts to operamail.

        Currently I use OperaMail on my desktop as Kmail needs Akonadi-server (and sometimes hangs) and Thunderbird and ClawsMail are too heavy and slow especially second one on e-mail checking.

        • CrashNBurn71

          Take a look at PostBox – it’s fairly reasonably priced, even more reasonable if you get two licenses at once. Works on Mac/Windows but not Linux. My only (real) beef is the toolbar isn’t layed out how I would like, and I haven’t seen any way to customize or change that – unfortunately.

          • Sergey

            Thank you but there are many good enough lightweight email clients on windows. OperaMail was one of notable of them 🙁

            As for Linux more convenient for me seems kmail for it’s common functionality and OperaMail for it’s lightweight (with saving quite many features despite absence of many others). It’s a pity that development of the OperaMail was discontinued.

  • rifki almaz

    i dont understand. do you start from scratch in every major version(without new major feature) . everytime it happens. full of bugs.

    • Jarrad Whitaker

      Who knows what is getting refactored beneath user-facing stuff? If you don’t want bugs, don’t use the Developer channel!

  • CrashNBurn71

    Why is the sidebar requiring it’s own “specific” extensions, as opposed to giving us another location to put “normal” extensions, and filtering requests to create a pop-up overlay to the sidebar instead.

    This whole opera-only-sidebar-only extension implementation is pretty much the exact opposite of what I expected when I tried Opera “one more time — looks like they are changing course for the better?”…

    There’s enough redundancy already with the slew of __required__ extensions that all do the same damnable thing… and now we are set to _double_ the number of redundant extensions, as the sidebar can’t contain a “normal” extension.

  • hafasd

    Please, add the option to rearrange icons on the sidebar. Something like in bookmark bar for example.

    • gregorweber

      Same for extension icons next to the address bar, please.

  • taneli

    For a couple of versions, Opera hasn’t been loading extensions properly, if the page doesn’t load in a millisecond, if the page loads for 2-3 seconds, extensions will fail to work on that page.
    Example 1: Slow internet connection, open a youtube video, magic actions for youtube extension won’t work when the video starts after 1 sec, seize all other traffic, refresh, works fine.
    Example 2: Slow loading news site, µblock and Stylish won’t work, tried a few times at different times of day, when the traffic is low and the page loads fast, the extensions work, on day time when it’s slower to load, nope.

    Embedded (YouTube) videos do NOT work since … Opera 27? What’s wrong???

    Example: http://abload.de/img/untitledhmu2d.png

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Example links? I don’t see such problem here.

      • Guest

        Almost every forum available, for example. If there is an embedded video, I can’t see it.

    I have facing the “This page crash”(memory not enought)
    When I suffering any Pages.The started from Opera 30
    I’m using Celeron E3300 Ram=8GB,Windows 8.1 Pro X64

  • honssnoh

    Thanks for the latest update. I just don’t get your logic. Did it really killed you to do sidebar with native functions let’s say pinned by user and disabled by default instead of crappy external extension solutions?

  • Петър Петров

    I don’t know about “Incorrect preview behavior” but I can’t switch tabs with Ctrl+Tab at all. Nothing happens.

  • Marko Koivuniemi

    I must confess that certain good old tab related function that I’ve been missed a lot is now available in certain interesting browser. I hope in the near future we got some hints that it’s returning also to Opera.

    Little request: add or force once-per-second images update while downloading. My fans go full speed when I happen to see big image loading slowly (like 5mb 4000×2000 img at 30kb/s). Presto had an option to update page once per second or more, Opera seems to update visuals on every single change and that’s plain stupid, cuz it practically freezes the tab with big images, especially when they are position:fixed (like in Imagus extension). Please, put some time into optimisation. Your browser is slow.

  • SKS

    Feature Request: 1.)While zooming in/out pages, give visual cues of page zoom is 80% or 60% and set button to revert to original size 100% like on chrome on address bar.
    2.) Give option to only show bookmark bar on new tab not always when it(bookmark bar) is enabled.
    3.) Give feature of auto-opening of file of specified type after finishing downloading like on chrome.
    4.) Make it resource efficient so that it doesn’t end up resource(memory) hungry like Bookmark extension with more and more updates+features like chrome.
    5.) Keyboard shortcut for Task Manager like (shift+esc)
    6.) Syncing of saved password, autofill form data ( hoped it will be added gradually)

  • wangmauler

    So it looks as though the Devs have removed the “Cycle Tabs without showing list” option, and now we have the stupid preview tab cycle style. I really dislike this, and this feature should not have been removed. I hope they add it back quickly.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Please read the post, in special the known issues.

  • Nekomajin43

    Does this build not support the camera and microphone content settings, or is it a bug? I’m developing a site specifis settings extension, and the last v29 build was fine, but I’m getting an error when the loop reaches the cam and mic settings.

  • Kamen Minkov

    Doing a “Gesture down” while loading a page results in the same page opening again (instead of showing a new page). I think this was the same in the previous build.

  • Vitor Moreno

    Hi, after a very long time away from computer I have seem this amazing update, but it have a problem, when I try to open a PDF file it says “File corrupted”.
    I have Foxit reader browser extension enabled in my Opera, but if I disable Chrome PDF viewer or Foxit then PDF files load good. Could you guys please set a priority for thirty party plugin for PDF by disabling the Chrome plugin by default or a question to user decide?

  • Hylian Ticipated

    For no reason, Opera said it couldn’t find my preferences and now all of my extensions are gone and my theme removed. What the heck? Way to celebrate 30 🙁

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Well, this a developer build and such things may happen. Just restore the preferences file (or maybe the entire profile folder) from a backup.

      • Hylian Ticipated

        That was my first option, unfortunately my windows system restore files self-deleted. I went through and got more extensions again so I’m not worried about that anymore. Even though Settings preference has been reset, things like Advance Settings and Power User Settings are still shown. I’m not how that’s being kept track of.

        My biggest upset right now is the speed dial thumbs reverting back to normal, and even though the Heart icon in the address bar still displays that it’s a speed dial for some sites, for others the speed dial option is not ticked. This really messes with my OCD and I will not tick it now, therefore I cannot change the thumbs. It also removed 1 of 2 websites in a speed dial folder. Not sure how it keeps track of how it decides for it to be unchecked and why.

  • trvehm

    The button “search and replace” of Wikipedia does not work (the same problem happens in stable version).

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I can confirm the issue.

  • Lacedaemon

    Is there a rough estimation for when we are able to see Steam broadcasts? In other words the full implementation of MP3 and H.264 support.

    Last confirmation of working on it was 4 months ago! :/
    Please hurry, I can’t stand having Chrome only because Opera can’t play them. And I hope it doesn’t come to Stable in another 4 months from now! (28->29->30)

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Can you give me an example? Because https://www.youtube.com/html5?gl=DE&hl=de tells me, that H.264 is supported.

      • Lacedaemon

        Sure, go here http://steamcommunity.com/?subsection=broadcasts and try to play something. It starts initializing but then ends with “An unexpected error occurred while playing this video”

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Ah, now I see and can confirm this problem.

          There is only one chance for you to go to Opera:flags and try around with all the flags that contain “experimental”.

          • Lacedaemon

            Only thing there is is opera://flags/#mse-h264-support which is the one that needs to be completely implemented.
            In fact the “An unexpected error occurred while playing this video” I was talking about appears when the flag is enabled, with disabled it is “Your web browser does not support the minimum set of features required to watch this broadcast.”, which is what happens in Stable too.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Still not working with the new update 30.0.1820.0

          • Lacedaemon

            Yes, sadly. Someone should really respond to that and give some info, maybe I should re-post it in the new blog post?

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Yes, I would do it.

  • Fullscreen video is awful since the first 29.x build with sidebar support:

        Sorry, my fault. I forgot to delete the cache properly. Page works now correct.

    Since the update that enables opening links in a background tab using a mouse gesture I’m getting a weird problem.

    Sometimes when I perform a normal open new tab mouse gesture on a website (in empty space) it instead opens one of my speed dial websites.

    Anyone else encountered this issue?

    For those who are interested: The 29 Beta has been updated again:
    Download: https://get.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-beta/29.0.1795.30/
    Changelog: https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/changelog-29/#b1795.30

    Should fix problems with PDF files for example. I hope we will soon see this in our Developer too.

  • HellBrick

    It’s great to see the keyboard navigation working in the tab menu again. However, there’s one thing that’s either confusing or missing (depending on your point of view): I’d like to be able to close the selected tab (the one the tab peek is displayed of) by Ctrl+W. Right now Ctrl+W closes the active tab that’s opened in the background behind the tab peek, which is counter-intuitive and prevents using the tab menu for cleaning up the tabs.

    Alternatively, it may be useful to add a separate hotkey for this. Maybe Del (similar to the Windows TaskManager that kills the selected process by Del)?

    I think I am having more difficulty with Opera 30 than I did with “29” trying to adjust my “Extensions, add-ons etc., to save bandwidth.. It just seems to me for some reason that “30” is consuming more bandwidth on my wireless connection than 29 did. Is it just me or is anyone else seeing the same thing and what are you doing about it?

  • Swartzy

    I use Opera for one project to keep it separate from all others. But the more I use it, the more I hate it. I can’t use it like I want, they keep deleting all the things I like and hiding them or not having them any longer. I hate all the dual uses you get from on tool bar IF you can even get a tool bar. I hate the method for saving Bookmarks, I want to do it all at once not in a dump. Terrible for me. I want to see more things out in the open up at the top. I hate to try and find them. I want to see locations on a tool bar. I want to see more tools open. Opera is a pain to use, no wonder it is not more popular. Only total Opera nerds would like the changes.

  • Swartzy

    I hope I found a way to keep Opera from automatically updating to a new level of terrible usage. If not I will dump it. I hate Opera 28-30 and even more way way back. I want it my way.

  • almark

    30 is a slug-fest. What’s with the lag? I hope they fix it.
