i love opera and it is my browser of choice for many reasons, i don't care about the stats! - just so long as it keeps going.
however i think @kaled makes some correct and excellent points.
>>How does not having a menu bar make life easier?
couldn't agree more!
>>How does having to stretch further to Shift-click make life easier?
>>How does having to remember to Shift-click instead of Ctrl-click make life easier?
agreed, however with a wheel mouse (which i use with my laptop) then a center click opens a link in a new tab, just like all modern browsers
>>How does having to use two keys to navigate between links instead of one make life easier?
>>How does having to open the bookmark editor to delete, edit or move a link make life easier?
bookmark editing is poor
>>How does wasted space in the tab and navigation bars make Opera better?
agreed, it takes a while to configure the bars how you want, i get everything i need/want onto 1 bar
>>How does having to click and wait on a forward/backward button make life easier than right-clicking? (even if you know about it)
agreed, but again if you use a mouse then hold right down and left click or the reverse, takes you backwards and forwards through pages
i agree that opera has lost ground in that it was by far the most innovative browser at one point.
like everything i guess it's horses for courses!
