    For some reason Ghostery never seemed to work correctly on my system.

    However, with this update I was completely surprised.

    still suffering from bad fonts here in Opera.

    i tried uploading the image to Wilders but it's too big.

    here's a comparison between Firefox and Opera.

    the one with the bad fonts is Opera. ;)

    i love Opera but i just can't use something that renders fonts like this. :gack:

    I was getting miserably slow performance out of previous x64 versions, but just now I installed the default 32bit Int'l version, and suddenly things are fast and reasonably speedy again. I don't understand it, but as long as it works well in 32bit, then I'm happy. Anyone who had speed issues with x64 before, you might want to try the default 32bit download and see if that helps.... works for me.. :)

    I can't wait for a new 12.5 or a 13.x snapshot with a huge change log.

    Strange, I installed the 32bit version, it's faster than the 64-bit.. :argh:

    I was going to wait for the next major Opera 13x or whatever, but Chromium started to weigh on my nerves.

    I'm guessing that you guys are having something clash with Opera x64. The x64 & x86 seem the same to me, although I think that the x64 seems a bit snappier. It would be interesting to know what software (or hardware) is causing this x64 slowdown on some people's systems.

    Notice how they hide the X64 download link? It is nowhere on the front page.

    I think that you're getting overly paranoid. ;)

    Just download Opera x64 in IE x64 & IIRC it automatically downloads the x64 installer version. I've never had any problems with the x64 Opera. Not even with the crashing bug that affected my x86 on my notebook. I will also say that Opera x64 is as easily as fast, if not faster, as IE 9 x64 on my Win 7 machine.

    The only thing different here is that I downloaded the default 32 bit Int'l download right off the front page instead of finding the x64 Eng download on the Download link with options.... Both installs (x64 and x86) were on brand new images of Win 7 x64, nothing else running except Avast.

    IMO, there is something amiss with the x64 versions. There are many many posts on the Opera forum about 12.xx versions being slow... It just hasn't affected you Daveski17....

    I would wager that it hasn't affected a fair few others.

    Same, even on a clean snapshot. The x32 version on the front page seems faster, more stable.. Had nothing but issues with the X64 one I had to dig for.

    Yep, definitely.. I'll stick with 32 bit for now, it's pretty nice.

    Don't know if I'm missing something or not, but on my PC both render the page identical. The difference appears when I use NoScript to block scripts in Firefox.

    I kicked Opera to the curb again, done with it.

    Page loading issues, font issues, random crashes (1-2 a day, but still...), strange freezes on some pages, etc.

    Just not worth it. I will check back in a few major revisions to see if those muppets have their crap together yet.

    Well, do remember to keep us regularly informed about just how bad you find it. ;)

    Facebook crashes on Opera now.. Forums have folks reporting this.. Seems Opera fixes one thing, and breaks others. Last patch it was Ebay that it broke, this time it is facebook. Never had an inch of trouble with Chromium, seriously. Ever.. Like 1 crash in 4-5 months.

    Opera 12.14, 64 Bit, Windows 7: facebook.com crashes. Every time. Bummer.

    is Opera the buggiest and most crashing browser out there?
