I like it some, but IT WILL NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING! Whether I use the Save As via the top menu or right clicking, or even using the download icon on a page with a pdf file, NOTHING WHATSOEVER HAPPENS! This is an obvious deal breaker until I can, plus the saving bookmarks has no Save or OK or Done button, and iI don't like that it will just put it wherever it feels like until I have to bring it back and do it.

Just thrilled. Have used just about every Mac browser there has ever been, since Navigator and Chimera.... and now, after spending a few weeks with Safari Technology Preview, I am back again to Opera. I love the Beta, knowing I'm getting the most recent innovations. It is equal to, or beats the rest in; loading speed, page rendering accuracy and is more"user friendly, " than any of them. I even find it has the best extensions/add-ons: "ublock origins," "user agent switcher" and "E-mail page," are the ones I rely on.

I have never left Safari. Until now. It's become too slow and buggy. So I tried the other obvious alternatives and even some less well known ones. Only Opera Beta is fast and stable. UI is clean. Page tabs are fixed size (hurrah!). Importing bookmarks, even favorites bar, was easy and intuitive. Important features to add: (1) Easy access to a link to contact Opera! (2) Simplify "Help"! (3) Customizable address + tool bar. (4) Share current webpage button, to email, facebook, etc. (5) Option so that "open new window" forces "open new tab" for clean-screen management.

While not perfect. This version is solid, reliable and containing some nice features with the ability to use plug-ins. Crisp images and speedy rendering of the web; and its free.

Anyone care to comment on why the regular (red) Opera is ahead of the Beta (white) at this point? Is the Beta being discontinued?

Opera used to be a “ahead of it’s time” browser in many aspects, now it just seems like a skinned version of chrome but with some features taken away, I really can’t see the draw to this new Opera.. I know it’s a beta but so many other browsers have so much more to offer..

Every one asking wheres the bookmarks!!, not 1 reply from the Dev's as far as I can see. Its there own little project and its how they want it, not the Customers. There never going to give you bookmarks. Now moved to Seamonkey as now faster than Firefox that's now to bloated. Seems like its a competition between all the Browsers to keep updating every week and not for the better. Good bye Opera and FF. good luck, you will need it. Given 2 stars because they DON'T listen to anyone.

I like Opera but in your release notes give credit where its due. I'm not sure if Apple is the first company with Safari 8 (still in beta) to make private windows darker so you can tell which is which but come on... "we wanted to make private windows darker than normal ones so we came up with a small handy improvement...." give me a break.. I don't mind the feature being added to Opera because I like opera, however give credit where its do please because believe it or not people know whats going on ;) Just a word of advice be honest at all times. Other then that, I'm downloading the latest update now :)

2nd review.... been using for some weeks now as default browser and am having no issues at all, unlike Aurora which keeps crashing and disabling add-ons. Opera is speedy and has a wonderful rendering which just seems a bit more colorful and rich than Safari. Bookmarks, bookmark bar, add blocking, anonymity, all the features I need.... work just fine and Opera is a trusted name. Now that Camino is gone, perhaps the oldest mac browser.

The new 1Password 4, available now from the App Store and from the AgileBits web site shortly, will be supporting Opera. That's a game changer for me.

Less features (or bloat if you wish) than before but still a very good browser. The web is broken, immature and dominated by the will of very few but powerful companies. So, maintaining a non mainstream and custom rendering and layout engine for this mess was never going to solve the problem of Opera's inability to display "correctly" all those broken websites. This move makes sense, although i would preferred that the Opera team choose the non google webkit engine . I expect new features in the short term future releases that bring some of the old and new interesting, compelling and differentiating features for Opera. I have seen a lot of whining from some users that do not understand and have no clue about how this world works. Sigh . I hope that doe not affect the moral of the Opera team Opera now have to focus in : Mobile integration, developer tools, non intrusive social integration, Cloud integration, user interface innovation and goodies , performance and resources, Operative System integration, Security and Privacy features .... damn that is a lot of brave work! All of those have to be better than chrome and others. But right now, i like it better that chrome and that is good enough for me. Keep going

There's no sign of a way to import bookmarks in Opera 17 except a "Bookmark Importer" that's greyed out. The "Help" pages included are for Opera 16. I've seen enough.

I'm not an Opera user but I keep it updated to use when Plan A ,B, C etc. have failed to clear up a html issue etc. So, not having visited this page for awhile, I want to know when Opera decided to switch from Webkit to a Chromium fork. (is 'fork' the correct term here, btw- i'm trying to forkward my computer literacy).

A glimpse of whats to come. Opera has come a long way and this 'next' version proves it. At the moment it takes three times the size of Safari on my HD and O Kay ... its missing a few things from the stable off-the-self version, but look beyond this and there is a promise of better things. Great potential and I'm liking this version a lot so far; why Opera is not more popular or as popular (as the Google browser) is still something of a mystery to me ... And its European based too; that has to be a plus.

I really like it. It works fine on my iMac 10.8.4 and am liking the hang motion mouse/trackpad (I use both) gestures. Sure I will still use Aurora the gecko engine (long time Camino user) for folders with many bookmarks and such, but I am getting used to the "speed dial" which does pretty much the same thing, but better. Stash opens my home page and from there the webkit browsing is as fast and stable as any other I've tried.

It's a "next" version but you can see what they think of the future and how much they care about their community. Don't expect them to bring back bookmarks, UI customisation by user, tab management, css and site preferences, etc (the list is long). They can set the argument about the post-pc era, etc. I am also a desktop user (I use the web more on my mac more hours than on my tablets/phones/gadgets) and I am staying with 11.64 (12.x was too buggy, you could predict such a bold move months ago by their reluctance to fix things) until I have to migrate to Firefox as my main Web Browsing tool.

So does this mean that "Opera Last", i.e. ver 12.X is on the way out? I went to the developer's site and can't find any information differentiating these two browsers. Would it hurt the folks at Opera terribly to give an explanation of this to end users?

Looks like there's no way to import bookmarks, to bookmark a page, or to create a folder to put the bookmark in. The good news: 1Password can be installed on Opera Next. The bad news: there are no passwords in the field when you open 1P. Well, it's a start. Hopefully it will develop into a useful browser for me. But I'm sticking with Firefox until it does.

Well long time Opera users won't really recognise this version, it is much closer to Chrome than Opera 12. Nevertheless they have built a completely native UI that isn't Chrome so that they can start to build back features unique to Opera. One very clear example is speeddial, but for me the biggest reason to use Opera 15 > chrome is mouse gestures are builtin. Opera 15 is built from blink, so it is much closer to a nightly chromium than Chrome rendering engine wise. Most chrome extensions are portable. I still miss lots of features, like custom search manager, the most robust per site preferences, tab groups, fast back performance, fast forward, notes, bookmarks with fuzzy search autocomplete, dragonfly

I have used Opera from the start; all the versions have worked well, and without fault;this version Opera Next is built on Chrome; it has an HTML5 score of 360 out of 500, and passes all security tests; it is my "default browser" because it is stable, renders web pages correctly, is recognized by most sites, and has a wonderful "private mode" plus a "Do not track header" I cannot find any issues; it is a "release candidate" and there will be a final at some point; because this uses a different rendering engine, means compatibility with the Mac OSX system; in my case it works without any issues and is a welcome browser!!

Yeah, this is faster than stable one. However, next and no 64 bit support. There is a paradox I think.
