    Reviewing 26.0.1656.60 (Dec 17, 2014)

    Still unable to add bookmarks in folders onto the bar below the address bar as in just about every other browser on earth - It seems Opera feel users don't use bookmarks if you research. (you can import them though)

    Though I suppose the ones that did use bookmarks have long since buggered off to alternative browsers long ago & the few users that Opera have left don't need them. Privacy is not high on Opera's list of importance either & few things can be customised, it seems you do it Opera's way or not at all from my hour spent with it today.

    IMHO the worse browser in the entire world which also left huge amounts of junk after uninstalling esp. in the registry, so be prepared to either restore an image or spend half hour cleaning your PC of this browser.

    If you are inclined to give it a try again, don't bother, it really is a piece of junk which requires alternative thinking way beyond that needed to use Windows & Linux on the same PC.

    @rafaelluik - I tried it stupidly again & still dislike it with bells on.

    I suggest people to try Opera themselves.

    Carefully analyze then don't listen to FUD.

    And another update to the stable branch without a changelog. I found this in the forums:
    "Opera Stable was updated to 26 but with new features disabled, because of a bug in Opera 25 that could not otherwise be fixed (and the features not having gone through the required testing yet)."

    How in the hell does that constitute stable?!?! Their new found disregard for privacy and piss poor quality control have forced me to remove Opera from my computer entirely for the first time in 10+ years. I guess this is goodbye Opera

    It is improving, slllooooooooowwwwlllllllyyyyyyy. You can forget about customization though which means, for me, this browser will never be my main one. The chrome approach is just not efficient for work flow.

    Aside from missing features one of my biggest gripes is intrusion of privacy, very google esq actually. This browser shares every site you visit back to Opera and, surprise surprise, there is no option to turn it off. Unencrypted I might add.

    And lastly, here is an example of where their silent updates are an issue. The Opera Destktop Team usually have a post outlining the changes for their releases but with this one, there is none to be found. It is just forced on you with no information or choice. Opera as a company have really changed and not for the better

    Definitely improving over time. Based on Chrome engine. Like it better than Chrome browser. They do need to add more in the way of customization.

    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.
