    Yeah opera has made itself very irrelevant, if its just going to be a brushed up chrome i will just use chrome.

    What they did do was replace their own Presto engine with Chromium Blink, which is what Chrome uses. So, yes, you could say its like running Chrome Frame in IE or something, I suppose.

    Well its not abandoning presto that is the issue.
    Its abandoning the original design of the browser, with all of its unique features stripped.
    Replaced by a half baked chrome clone.

    15, 16 & 17...They seem to be popping new versions faster than I can keep up. I'm still running 12.16 until I see some compelling reason to "upgrade". Could I install 17 without it effecting my current 12.16 installation?

    I doubt it. Although sometimes you can run different versions alongside each other so I guess the only way to know is to try? Maybe you'll be lucky?

    That's the reason that I haven't tried it, because I don't believe in luck...at least not mine.

    Yuk I never use Opera. I tried it when I got my first home computer and was horrible. It never played videos and did not display the web pages right. It was not user friendly at all. So I had to uninstall it. I use Google Chrome and Pale Moon browser. Opera is one browser that is actually worse than Internet Explorer.

    Thank you for your opinion but this is actually an update thread for those that do use it.
