Version: Opera 24.0.1558.61
When I first tried the new Webkit version some time ago, I was terribly disappointed at the apparent lack of user control over things and reverted immediately to Opera 12.17. Perhaps I didn't spend enough time exploring it, I don't know, but I have now installed the latest version 24.0.1558.61 and have found everything that I liked about v.12.17 and more, including an even better speed-dial, stash and the ability to delete browsing history and individual cookies while browsing. We've still got the mouse gestures, keyboard shortcuts and there are plenty of useful extensions to add on.
Contrary to what some people are saying, it does import bookmarks. I found the bookmark import icon on the speed-dial page and it will import into bookmarks or speed-dial.
The only thing I'm missing is the Notes facility which I found really useful.
I didn't think version 12.17 could be improved but I was wrong. I think Opera have stopped supporting it now so to all you 12.17 lovers, I can recommend installing this latest version. It's very polished and fast.
