    After spending quite a bit of time sorting Opera out, getting bookmarks toolbar inorder and making settings adjustments, things actually went quite well. I was quite surprised. I'm still getting used to it, but in the meantime all I can say is "not bad, not bad at all.

    Currently my favorite web browser. Opera Cloud Sync is working again, and Bing has been restored as an additional search engine.

    SpeedDial is similar to the Start Screen for Windows 8/10. It's easy to view content of a URL,since it shows as a screen-shot.

    You will need PPAPI if you desire the flash plugin. Opera does not come with flash installed like Google Chrome.

    If you desire to remove Google search in the Speed Dial, go to settings (ALT+P) and type the konami code:

    Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A

    With luck click "advanced "check box,you'll see the option to "Hide the search box in Speed Dial"

    Opera wish list:

    -64bit version for Windows
    -Ability to PIN website within Opera to Windows 8/10 start screen.
    -Ability to alphabetically sort all bookmarks/folders/sub folders iin bookmark manager/speedial. Currently you have to move things manually one at a time. (workaround, put the bookmark folders on the bookmarks toolbar. If you hover over the folder, you can right click and sort alphabetically)

    -Add Opera stable to the current Fedora/CentOS repository. Currently you have to convert Opera deb to rpm,and get stuck with the Ubuntu GUI
    -Add option to improve font thickness (under windows) to better match IE11/Firefox. Make it a little easier for older eyes to view websites.
    -Integrate option to adjust/throttle download speeds for certain files (.exe/.iso). Basically like an integrated freedownloadmanager/eagleget directly in Opera

    well....Vivaldi's Tech preview has been around a month and already Google is taking their ideas. That means Opera follows suite, so welcome the very useful sidebar. Sadly, they are relying on panel extensions rather than making things native. I've never really been a fan of extensions because you become dependent on too many developers to ensure your browser is up to date.

    It's also rather embarrassing that Opera, once the one known for it's innovations that others copied is now sitting on the other side of that fence.

    I have completely removed Opera as it does not perform well, is a crippled version of Chrome that phones home just as much and is a little all over the place at the moment in direction.

    Cyberfox has satisfied my needs and I will look to Vivaldi's development so I can finally replace my Opera 12.17 for mail and notes

    Why do you feel the need to mention me in most of your posts? Are you in love with me or something? Please try and stick to discussing the software, this ain't christian mingle.

    Opera has a bit of a head start on Vivaldi so time will tell. They've certainly set their sights on being more than just another Chrome clone. Opera is striving to set the bar high, why in the newest developer build they've added the revolutionary ability to center images!! Amazing

    Does this version support shortcut keys such for tabbing with number keys 1& 2?

    I've been a long time user of Opera but have switched to Firefox for three reasons. First because they wont produce a Unite free version, second because Opera can't seem to handle many Google cookies properly and third, Opera definitely got slower with version 10 and FF is now much faster. Try it and see.
