The new Opera is a mixed bag.
In a way it was finally updated to the XXI century when it comes to speed and memory usage.

But in order to do so, the developers trashed everything that made Opera different for the better:

Having tried all of the major alternatives, & several of the others, i much prefer Opera. By comparison w. the others, i find it fast, easy to use, reliable, & free of virtually all of the issues i experienced w. other browsers.

But it isn't perfect yet: Procedurally, there isn't any way of raising an issue that isn't a bug, (& isn't in the Forums), other than to do what prompted me to write this review - i.e. you cannot access support other than to report a bug.

My question/issue is that i see no easy way of reorganizing the Bookmark Folders -- i have lots of them, & would find it useful if Opera had a a Sidebar View option for the Bookmarks & their Folders, (a feature present in a number of other browsers).

Wish it had a better bookmark method. Other than that it's excellent.

I want to love this browser but...
I still miss an integrated decent bookmark management solution. At least I would like to be able to import my bookmarks to the speed dial.
Mac OS X speech to text doesn't work anymore
as a dyslexic person I find this a major issue, fix it please.

Not my favorite browser. I guess it would be my fourth option.

Disk image for version 21 is not recognized by Snow Leopard (10.6.8). Have the requirements changed to a later version of OS X?

To all of them looking for importing bookmarks:
There is an excellent app called Little Bookmark Box. It is independent of the browser. If you do have a "bookmarks.html" then you import it into Little Bookmark Box and thats it. It works with all browsers as long as they are marked as "Standard-Mail-App".

Bookmarks Bar & Bookmark Folders:

fortunately i can forward a tip that i yesterday read on


"The migration from other browsers to Opera is not ideal. This will hopefully improve soon, but in the meantime some manual work is required.

To export from Safari, open the File: Export Bookmarks menu. The resulting HTML file can be opened directly in Opera as a kind of portal page with all your bookmarks. The same method can be used from Firefox and Chrome.

You then have three options:

Open the HTML page and drag each link from these HTML pages onto the bookmarks bar or Speed Dial
Install the Bookmarks Manager extension and use it to manage your bookmarks. It can import directly from the exported HTML files.
Import the HTML files into Chrome. Move all the bookmarks to the Bookmarks bar in Chrome using the Bookmarks Manager. Then manually copy the ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Bookmarks file to ~/Library/Application Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/Bookmarks (quit both apps first!)
Not ideal, but all methods will get your bookmarks into Opera.

Hope these methods can be an acceptable. I hope that by the time others find this post using a search-engine, there will be a more user-friendly approach available.

Good luck!

I executed the several steps and all worked at best !
So i really have the (almost) best browser existing and i wanted to share this hint with all of you Opera users.

Opera, I would use your browser if:

A) Integrated 1Password for password management.
B) You implemented Cocoa text functionality as you see it in Safari (hint: right click everywhere and line it up with Safari).
C) Offered a robust bookmarking solution that works with Safari.
D) Paid the AdBlock developer to make the plugin for Opera or integrated the same functionality.
E) Allow us to define custom search engines as DEFAULT, such as startpage.com.
F) Create a session management system like Sessions, which is the best around (http://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8247646/sessions/index.html)
G) Add download location management such that it will download to date stamped folders. For example, with Glims I set Safari to keep downloads in ~/Downloads/14-4 for April 2014, which really helps to keep things under control.
H) Allow users to override requests from sites to not save passwords (such as banks).

I've been using Opera for the past few days and I'm very impressed.

A couple answers:

A) 1Password with Opera is implemented. Open Opera and go to:


B) +1

D) There is already Adblock Plus for Opera, but the new AdGuard extension works even better.


Im too. And:
J ) Allow sync for google servers bookmarks !!!! Opera sync for MAC NOT Worked !
