Well, I don't know where 13 and 14 went, but I must have blinked because when I finally got around to downloading 15, I found myself with 17 instead.
On the plus side: they have finally knuckled under and added a History menu, after clinging for years to that tab-plus-world's-smallest-icon setup that you'd have thought went out with MSIE 5. Whew.
On the down side: Has anyone else had issues with the View menu? Half of mine seems to be missing. (After "Enable developer tools" there's a dividing line ... and then nothing.) I even re-downloaded and reinstalled in case something got eaten in transit. This is slightly crucial for me, because as far as I can make out, View is where they've hidden the font-and-size preferences-- if in fact they exist anywhere.
And speaking of hiding: What's the magic trick to get Opera to open a blank generic empty window, either at startup or in response to a New command? I never figured it out in 12 either; closest I got was gutting the Speed Dial window so it's just a grey screen :( Can't even do that in 17.
