    "This Browser Going From Bad To Worse"

    August 12, 2012  |   By ElObomo


    Past good reputation.


    After logging in to Netflix, all there is a a GIANT RED SCREEN! What is that all about? Past versions had to be disguised as FireFox to play Netflix - now, all there is is a red screen!
    Google Maps index rendering is still skewed and won't print properly.
    No default hardware accelerators, and when manually turned on, it doesn't make any difference.
    Ho-hum set of add-ons.
    Still lacking any sort of download/malware protections.


    If you like toys - Opera is toy-like in many ways. Being left behind by even IE9.

    Forgot to mention the scrolling - it's about as smooth as riding in a wooden-wheeled, horse drawn log wagon.
