5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Opera

By | August 31, 2007 | 14 Comments

OperaTime for some more critics and as I promised, it’s “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Opera”. You can check my “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Internet Explorer” here. And here we go…

1. No intergrated spell check. So you accidentally can type with some erors (?).
2. No “smart” auto update.
3. Where’s auto-complete when filling various forms? Few fields is not enough. I wish to have this, even Internet Explorer has that.
4. Can’t remove “Widgets” from menu as well as delete multiple wands. I like clean browser.
5. RSS news placed in the “mail” folder. I was making a backup of all my files but haven’t made that “mail” folder backup as I wasn’t using mail. Seems RSS news items were placed exactly there so I lost all of them.

Tomorrow you will see “5 Reasons Why I Don’t Like Firefox” post.

    Opera Mini 4 Beta 2 – Tomorrow

    By | August 29, 2007 | 1 Comment

    Opera Mini 4 Beta 2So here you go, Opera Mini team tomorrow will be releasing Opera Mini 4 Beta 2. Developers promised new features, and as they say, some of them were added by Opera Mini users requests while other ones are completely new. As you know they haven’t just used Opera Mini 3 core, they rewrote it (bugs, bugs, bugs), this Opera Mini 4 Beta 2 also should be much faster as well.

    New features? RSS Feeds (not confirmed). I think this one will be added. Why it wasn’t added in the first Opera Mini 4 Beta then? It wasn’t finished.
    Opera Mini team also wrote that more than a few Opera Mini 3 features like secure connections and content folding wasn’t added in the first Beta release, but *some* of those features will be in the Beta 2.

    One more thing: This is not the last beta. We will have Opera Mini 4 Beta 3 as well. I respect this decision, we want to have stable and finished releases, even if that requires Beta 3 or even Beta 4.

    Download Opera Mini 4 Beta 1.
