    "What other changes does it make without asking?"

    October 1, 2012  |   By kbuikmvaj


    I don't know


    Definitely sleazy


    When I installed it, I thought it was real sleazy that it installed a quick-start icon without asking. Then I noticed that it had set itself up as the default browser without asking! That's when I uninstalled it. The writers are so arrogant that they'll do things like that without asking, there's no telling what other changes they'll make to my machine without asking.

    It has never made itself my default browser and I have been using it for over a year.Every time I open Opera it always asks me if I want to make it my default browser.I just click on NO and it goes away and Opera opens.Also when installing it gave me the Option if I wanted a quick-start icon.Maybe you might want to try and reinstall it again ????????
