    Released Opera 15 with WebKit engine: well, I tried one of the beta and I know that there were some changes, but I thought that they were only in beta and incomplete versions: now I can't find the function " Preferences ", someone knows ? - i have more of 500 bookmarks, and " import bookmarks " doesn't work - I want to move the main and address bars to the bottom and I can't.

    Thank you, but I'll enjoy more if I could have my bookmarks and my preferences..... the new engine is faster, but what I have to do with my bookmarks ? :(

    Opera 15 is an absolute travesty.

    There is nothing left that made Opera, Opera.

    It's Opera in name only and frankly it dishonors the brand.

    Completely unusable.

    Opera Software refuses to listen to its loyal fan base.

    Thanks for the correction - up at the moment x64 is available only in the Presto build. A corresponding Webkit version wasn't released! :(

    As I suspected, when I started the older thread about the tests version, Opera based Chromium version is one piece of crap.

    I can't possibly understand why remove things that are present and work quite well in Chromium, and I can't understand how they can develop a Chromium based browser that brings nothing that useful to the table. o_O o_O

    As a Chromium user pretty much ever since it came out, I see no reason to start using Opera, at all. If people want to fork something, then do it properly and offer more useful features to the user. :thumbd: :thumbd:

    Well, it isn't really the Opera I knew. I prefer it to Chrome though. I'll probably stick with Maxthon.

    OK, I've been giving it a bit of a spin. I know this is going to sound crackers but I actually quite like it. It is a tad oversimplified & I can't see it being my main browser (I used Opera as my default for years) but I like its simplicity. Apparently extra features will be added in later versions.

    You like this? I was dead from surprise after reading your post..this is my ghost responding :D Truthfully I've only kept up via reading, I haven't touched the browser since that very early and disappointing test run. This bookmark thing has me intrigued. I can't see Speed Dial being useful past 10/20 bookmarks. I'll have to go give it another whirl. I'm picturing 100+ bookmarks on Speed Dial looking like the front page of Spotify or something :D

    I'm not sure what they will do with the bookmarks, having said that, I tend to predominantly use speed dial on Maxthon, so I am used to it. I have a couple of extensions, ABP & Clearly. They seem to be working well. I just like Opera 15 more than I thought that I would. It seems to perform well on my notebook anyway. I doubt I'll download it onto my desktop PC though.

    Perhaps "Stash" is more suitable than Speed Dial for massive amounts of site storage..or is Speed Dial now called Stash? Dunno, I can't get the download page up to find out at the moment. Reading from http://www.pcworld.com/article/2043...ic-features-mobile-inspired-enhancements.html, it doesn't sound all that bad. If ABP is working that's a good start. I'm hoping such things like 3rd party cookies can be disabled too. When I can get it downloaded I'll know all this stuff for myself.

    I haven't really tried 'Stash' yet. I'll have to explore further. Does this Opera link help you?

    ...Don't..want..just..no. It's a half-baked Chrome with a big red O icon. Where is the re-size function for windows? It's not very responsive either, in page loading and going through what little "preferences" there are left. For a mobile environment it might not matter much, but for desktops it's very underwhelming imho. I can't help but feel like the "more features coming later" thing is more of a " We'll finish it later, let's just get it out there so we're not forgotten..again". Perhaps I'm being overly critical :D

    It is essentially a Chrome clone, but for some reason I think that I prefer it to Chrome. Admittedly I was never a huge Chrome fan to begin with. Re-size function? I can change font size & window size (I'm running Vista on my notebook).

    At least Opera 15 has a decent British English spellchecker ... :D

    I'm keeping this new Opera around, but I can't say I'm impressed. Maxthon will remain my primary browser, it seems to have surpassed Opera in terms of user experience (especially now that hardware acceleration is finally in). Let's see what the future holds for Opera.
