    Web browser controlled by the user, not vice-versa

    Otter Browser, project aiming to recreate classic Opera (12.x) UI using Qt5.

    would be great if it takes off.

    im still using Opera 12.16 portable.


    edit: eh, looks like its only for Linux for now :(

    even if I'm Firefox addicted
    (configurability and add-ons, you know)
    I'd very much like to see this going

    I have been having Chrome inspired nightmares...

    Interesting I'll wait & see.

    Been using Opera since they had a paid version & a free version with a 2-3" header saying FREE version or something.

    But after being disgusted with New World Opera. I finally have FF tweaked so it's exactly like my old Opera installs.

    Nice and all, but what´s the use without the Presto engine? :rolleyes:

    Also, Opera v12 is still alive and kicking, no need for a clone.

    eh fwiw, i read from a few sources that claiming Opera 12 has vulnerabilities that aren't being patched now. i dont know what Presto or Webkit means, i just like all the options, easy to add buttons for customization, url filter, etc etc. Opera 12 is by far the best browser ive ever used.

    I will try this in a VM, just to see what it does. Opera Presto is still alive and kicking but this looks different enough to be interesting. Just that it exists says there are a lot of us out there that want to keep using Presto Opera.
