    Mainly the look, but also now I got used to Opera's bookmarks system, and in Opera to open closed pages it's more easy... little things actually.

    Opera has a browser snapshot feature now, very useful. I also prefer the UI layout--it's clean and well-organized, and simple enough to commit to memory so you get used to it very quickly. The bookmarks are simple and effortless to use.

    I liked Vivaldi very much, but its configuration settings were a little overpowering for me. Opera's settings are better suited for me. MS Edge is secondary on here--the homepage is so cluttered, even if you futz around with the quick launch button. Hopefully, when it gets its sidebar feature like Opera's, it'll be easier on the eye.

    off-topic reply in response to paulderdash's suggestion:
    Hi, paulderdash, I actually had this feature in mind, pinning favorites to the side (to declutter the Edge homepage). It's in the middle of the chart--Planned

    I really appreciate your suggestion about the sidebar add-on. I'm hesitating, though, due to the messages on the page you linked in your post. So, I'll have to think it over. No add-on should have any caveats in my mind.

    Opera still has it made as far as the sidebar goes. The homepage interface is almost all my chosen wallpaper. No clutter.
