@pkaster Could be. However, that's part of my point. Even when I use[d] Minefield on FF... It didn't blow away Firefox preferences. And Webkit nightlies don't blow away Safari preferences. (Heck, even ol' W3C Amaya retained its few user preferences when I downloaded a beta.) As I suggested, IMO this is a basic user-friendliness behavior Opera needs to consider for its alpha/beta trials.
However, these are mere inconveniences for me (as are CSS proprietaries "-o-" and such)... and I have a userid in the Opera forum to converse with the community there. So no major gripe. I still play with this fast little browser, though Chrome is my habit for personal use.
