    In a way, I'm not disappointed. Having too many browsers, each setting and following some of their own standards simply leads to websites that don't work right on some browsers. Having fewer browsers to support is probably a good thing, especially with the ridiculous speed in which these things update/upgrade these days.

    The new look of Windows 8 was not well received.
    I use Opera.
    I'm happy with it as is.
    They'll pry my Desktop PC from my cold dead hands.
    I'm not a mobile type person.
    It remains to be seen how the public will react to the new Opera.
    Seeing as Win 8 caused such a stir.

    I'm a chrome user myself, so it's less traumatic for me.

    I think it's safe to say that Opera 15 doesn't appear to have gone down too well...

    Screenie at that link reminds me of slimboat. There is a lot of shopping/social networking crap by default, but you can remove it.
