    PSA: Opera browser users

    Opera has just released their latest browser- Opera 15. They have jettisoned their own Presto engine in favor of the Chromium projects work (basis for Google Chrome and Apple Safari). It is on a rapid release cycle, mirroring that of Chrome and Firefox.

    If you are currently using Opera 12.x, it will continue to be supported with security patches and the like for the foreseeable future. You won't be force migrated to 15 at this time.

    I just downloaded and installed Opera 15. Basically, it is like Google Blue w/Opera UI layered on top... at least it handles page zoom like Opera and not Chrome (for now)

    FWIW, I just uninstalled Opera 15 (gotta be a new record for me). ABP wasn't working after installing and unable to pin tabs- I generally have 3 tabs pinned at any given time.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll watch carefully, Opera loves to sneak in automatic updating.

    Oh, those silly Norwegians. Why did they do this? Opera was supposed to be different. It's always been different.

    Keep that up and I may have to try a different browser. But then, I haven't been really happy with them since they did away with the manually edited config files.
