I used Opera browser on my (Android) phone for quite a while but have used Chrome exclusively* for years now.

 

* Well, except at work where we're lumbered with Internet Exploder.

They killed opera by releasing a really dumbed down version which meant a ,lot of people stopped using it. I think I will follow you and unistall it, as I am using an old verison . The old version still has the best bookmarking system, that you used to be able to sync it between PCs. But they killed this off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you're referring to Opera 12  I found that I could no longer log into GZ .  I'm currently on Beta 39

 



Really, I still use it and have no problems logging in.

 

I don't see the "I'm not a robot"  area   so can't log in..  No CAPTCHA  Opera 12.18

So far as I'm concerned Opera Mobile is the best mobile browser there is.

The killer function for me is the ability to reflow text when you zoom, something that almost no other browser does including Chrome.

No Add Blocker.  Vanilla Opera 12.

 

Edit.  Just installed Opera 12.17 on Win 10 PC at work  and no CAPTCHA appears at login.  PC at home is Win 7

Just wow OP

 

You'd better stop using your computers, laptops and phones too, since they were made by Chinese companies. And our internet is built on a lot of huawei network equipment as well, so better give that up too. Anything with a battery in it. etc etc

Indeed !

 

I use Opera 38.0 for most of my browsing activity, only a few sites have issues but then who doesn't have more than one browser installed ?

 

My order of preference on Windows is Opera, then Firefox, then Chrome and then IE/Edge if I really have too. On Linux I use Firefox then Midori as getting Java and Flash working with Opera on Linux was previously hard

Totally agree. Use it all the time for sites not optimised for mobile viewing (including the full Geekzone site) since most other Android browsers decided that they would remove that ability in the interests of driving developers to produce mobile sites - Hint: the strategy is not actually working.
