Opera 12.13 Final
Just installed. Perfect thing.
Opera 12.14 Final
Version 12 update to 12.16 build 1860
You can get the latest (32 or 64 bit) here --> Opera 12.16 for Windows or at this ftp link --> Index of /pub/opera/win/1216/; as of now it is release 12.16 build 1860.
So now it's using the same engine as Chrome is.... he he
No, this is 12(the Presto engine), not 15 with webkit.
Can anyone report if they are using the new version on whether they have added the speed dial and the bookmarks in place?
can anyone gimme a direct link to the non chromium version?
i hate this chromium, its too dumbed down.
yes if you mean 16.xxxxxx.62 then yes
speedial is there; books marks is knows as stash "heart symbol"
both easier to use; but old version i.e.16.0000.73 hangs the system on heavy flash sites.
Here is the direct link to all: http://get.geo.opera.com/pub/
Stash is stash, but there will be bookmarks.
They (Opera Dev team) are working on the ability to add the bookmarks feature.
There are a couple of extensions that add the improvisation of bookmarks.
You can enable bookmarks in the QAB (Quick Access Bar); however, they are not editable or sortable, I believe.
You can use this to use chrome extension and try using some there bookmark extensions: Download Chrome Extension
Or, you can try some of the Opera extension for bookmarks... not the best, IMO, but they worked when I tried them.
Here is another little tool that I like so I don't have to type commands into the browser: Opera Internal Pages
Hmm. Ill setup a test system to try it out. I have an old Dell Laptop on which ill install Win 7 and try it out to see if i can manage it before trying to transfer 500+ bookmarks.
Wow it's been a long time since I gave up on Opera but I might start again with a new release:
Opera 12.18 x86
Opera 12.18 x64
Did you check Vivaldi?
I did. It has nice features but it seemed clunky (occasional memory leaks). I'll wait for later releases because Vivaldi needs some polishing and ironing.
Wow, it's still being maintained? It just sucks that webpages complain about it. I know DeviantArt shows annoying banner on top with it. Opera 12 was awesome, but all the current versions feel like what Opera was like 15 years ago...
Opera's development slowed down indeed. As you can see at the top of this page version 12.13 released more than 3 years ago and now it's 12.18. It went downhill when they abandoned their own engine and switched to chrome.
Yeah it still has rough edges but seems promising, I'm sure I will check it out too!
If they would kept the features from v12 after going to Chromium it would have been awesome, but luckily we have Vivaldi
Yes, maybe Vivaldi could do the things Opera couldn't.
I don't like Edge because of its memory leaks on many sites, even though more sites are faster with Edge than with IE. Chrome and Firefox aren't my cup of tea.
I dunno, I'll just wait for Edge or Vivaldi getting better. Atm will use new Opera and see how it works.
At first I though they'll just swap the rendering engine, but what they did was swap the entire browser for trimmed down Chrome and after how long they've been working on Chromed Opera? They still haven't come anywhere near Opera 12 functionality. Imagine Firefox as we know it today being converted back to what Firefox was at version 1.0. This is how Opera looks like today.
Opera is doomed FFS...
I checked Vivaldi... no bad... you can see it is the old opera team... but still UI is sluggish... the current Opera is my favorite... well... I don't like the china deal at all...
Opera is the new netscrape buttigator
Opera Now Comes With Native Ad Blocking Features
