    It's just Chrome with new skin. Long time Opera users are mad because all the good functionality of Opera 12, for them, does not exist anymore. As anything in life change is difficult to accept. I use Opera Mini on my Android device it's the best browser full stop. I used on mobile devices since the Symbian days they are terrifically good. On the desktop I'm afraid Opera was always a 'difficult' browser to grasp. Never used it beyond the 'just to see it' scenario. Good luck to all Opera enthusiasts.

    The thing about Opera I like is that it doesn't crash on me like IE 10 & Chrome.
    It's pretty stable.

    I was using Opera 12.
    Hence the I added.

    Opera 15 is different from 12.

    The mail is now gone.
    You need to get it by itself.

    The opera://config used in the address bar really helps set it up.

    Good luck to all who try it.
