Personally, I think Opera is going in the wrong direction. Opera held a very unique position in the browser market. Users has the ability to customize tab location (tiles: verticle, horizontal, etc), ability to customize the entire browser look, and the list goes on. No other browser on the market could tile and organize tabs as Opera could. With the release of Opera 15, sadly these features are no more. Thus... forcing users that want those features to use old outdated versions of Opera. My spew... Opera 15/20 is s***. It's hogwash. The Opera development team blatently took code from the Chromium engine and labeled it Opera. Removed features that were VERY useful (tiled tabs, etc.). Seriously... MUTIPLE TABS TILED VERTICAL / HORIZONTAL helped in business... being able to monitor multiple routers and scripts at home from multiple sources all at once, WITHOUT having to tab over to the next tab. Ludicrus! So now, in order to achieve the aforementioned, I'll need to have 6-8+ Opera.exe's open (Hmmm Memory hog!! guess I'll have to get 64gb of memory), instead of the 1 browser and 6-8+ tabs. 1. TILED TABS (Opera 12.16) Very productive browser.When at work... tiled tabs could be reach 16+ on a 46" monitor, monitoring mission critical data. 2. TILED TABS (Opera 12.16) Screencapture doesn't do any justice to show how useful tiled tabs are.More complex setup, better views at higher resolutions and large displays. Res: 1920 x 1200, 2560 x 1600, +Opera Developers were developing a very unique platform 3. Tab Options (Opera 12.16) AWESOME LAYOUTS!Need I say more?! 4. SETTINGS (Opera 12.16) Preference panel was useful. 5. Opera 18.0 (Opera 15, original Chromium release) Notice the waste of monitor space (white space)... no need to have settings horribly spread out. Very poor project management.Tabs are the same as every other browser out there.No Windows within Windows... no tiles... no cascading... 6. TAB OPTIONS (Opera 18.0) No options to tile tabs.Create folders for tabs.Customize tabs.Etc, etc.. etc..... 7. SETTINGS (Opera 18.0) Notice the waste of monitor space (white space)... no need to have settings horribly spread out. Very poor project management.Officially talking about LAZY OPERA DEVELOERS. Certainly Opera is catering to the Tablet market and, again, ignoring the business and home user who use browsers entirely different than a tablet user ever would. The same concept Microsoft has done when implementing Metro and removing the Start Menu from the Operating System. Metro is useless in the business Market and has no value what-so-ever, the same for the home user (IMO), Metro is a tablet feature only and should have been introduced and developed that way only and packaged as a feature that users could add or remove from the system. Anyway, this thread isn't a Windows 8/8.1 rant. Opera is done in my book. IMHO. Guess I'll have to use the last version before this terrible upgrade, unless Opera developers decide to clean up the interface and implement useful features into newer versions. Edit: Typos
