    "Was good. No more."

    January 2, 2014  |   By Streeeeetch

    Version: Opera 18.0.1284.68

    Pros

    None compared to other browsers - it's just a stripped down Chrome now. You're better off just using Chrome.

    Cons

    No Bookmarks
    No Bookmarks
    No Bookmarks

    Summary

    I was along term fan of Opera - used it for many years with a couple of visits to Firefox when Opera became slow or unstable over the years but always went back because in its default config it was near perfect for my needs. I use bookmarks as my virtual library. Opera's bookmark handling was excellent.
    It was, however, always a bit flaky with some sites. I travel a lot and kept Chrome for booking planes. No time to mess about booking one with 2 hours before a flight goes!
    Now they've tried to become trendy and just become one of the crowd instead of the one who stood out as something special.
    Dull, bad, sad.
    I have Firefox now with a few extensions to make it more (old...) "Opera like" and don't need Chrome any more. RIP (old) Opera.

    Updated on Jan 3, 2014

    Cnet Guys: Given the Opera up to v12 was "outstanding" and really did warrant 4 stars and the versions since that might be called "Opera" but are totally different, would it be fairer to have split the review and results into two separate items as I think the current user reviews vastly disagree with the averages and skew the perception unfairly.
