"Going downhill since version 9"
Still loads pages fast.
Right click on link menu will not open links in another tab, nor open the link period, in version 11.
Can't easily add multiple-same bookmarks in the bookmark menu. This has been this way since version 9, and still doesn't work correctly.
Secure sites like Paypal, eBay, and others wont load the pages properly, even though Opera has been made aware of this since version 9.
Opera has a bad bug in that while opening a page, it acts as if it times out, and reloads the page, forcing you to wait until it reloads it again. This generally happens on pages with a lot of content on them, such as pictures, etc. The page has been known to reload or reset up to 3 to 4 times, in order to load an entire page, thus dragging out the time way longer than it should.
I have been using Opera since version 3, (when you still had to pay for it), and was a faithful user. It seems that since newer versions than version 9 came out, Opera has went downhill, as far as the amount of bugs, and not showing or loading pages properly.
When reporting the bugs to Opera, via their own forum, a programmer wrote back that when checking my other older posts, it was always a complaint, when, the bugs were supposed posted there, or to be reported and fixed. This was due to me making a comment that they should forget adding the whistles and bells, and make Opera load all the pages properly.
I also saw a reply from Opera, stating that Opera would only work right with the newest version of HTML, which discounts Java, and any other web programming. That was their attitude about it, in that if it wasn't their way, with HTML 5, that it wouldn't be any other, period. In other words, they don't care that you don't experience the web properly.
The only thing that Opera has, now, that I like over a browser like Firefox, is the page loading speed. In reality, Firefox will not show a page until its mostly been downloaded, and Opera begins "painting" the page, when the data download begins.
I will be going back to Firefox, as version 11.62 has way too many bugs in it. What are their Beta testers doing, twittling their thumbs, and claiming it will work when it clearly will not, again?
