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.

Fast, smooth, expandable – but still no proper bookmark management.

Come on, Opera. It's almost a year now. How difficult can it be to reimplement this?

I completely agree with you. Could have been my default browser but I just find it very clumsy and almost arrogant on their part to think that they can significantly change the user experience by taking this away. It does not have to be on by default but don't take this completely away. I just knew by now Opera would have included this functionality... Guess not.

I'm on a Macbook with Mac OS 10.6.8.

What prevents me from changing to this browser, is the fact that, at least on my machine, the three fingers swipe doesn't work. It doesn't work either with Safari 5.1., but works very well with Firefox, which I then use.

I believe there is a new version available.
Download from the dev leads you to 20.0.1387.

By far the fastest browser on the Mac. (running with X.9)... For those who don't think so, they don't have it configured to run at its best quite frankly.

The one issue I have with it -- as many other have already stated -- is the disappearance of the bookmarks bar & panels. It made the upgrade from version 12.x a real pain. Resorting all my bookmarks into additional folders to make them all fit in the bookmarks bar took at least an hour (on a wide screen no less!). It would have been much better if the developers had left the bookmarks handling alone and also left the panels function in place from version 12.x.

The above said, this version is leaps and bounds above version 12.x. Yeah there are some differences that take some getting used to, but I haven't run into anything that I can't live with. And folks have developed bookmarks managers for Opera that work nicely enough and continue to improve. That is the only issue I have with this new version. Haven't found a site it doesn't work on -- in fact, it brought back functionality to sites I couldn't access with 12.x. It may be "light on features" but there are many extensions written for it which are amazing and easy to use, easy to install, easy to disable or uninstall, etc.

For those interested:
You can import bookmarks (to the bookmarks bar in Opera) from another browser using additional extension called Xmarks (version for Google Chrome) - can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store. Of course, this extension also allows you to synchronize your bookmarks

To be able to install Chrome extensions in Opera you need this:

Is anyone else getting a Finder error −8003 when they try to delete Opera Next.app from their Mac? I repeatedly get it for this particular file and no other. I've tried the terminal command rm and rmdir but to no avail. Would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to delete it. No response from Opera, of course.

I keep encountering the same problem with Opera with each of the 10.+ versions. My bookmarks keep disappearing. I keep importing them time after time, but Opera keeps deleting them. Does anyone have an answer or cure for this? I typically use Safari or Firefox, but Opera handles a couple of business sites that the other browsers will not load properly. It's just frustrating to have my bookmarks continue to vanish.

Note there have been problems with the auto-update function from previous 10.1 snapshots to this final release. You need to delete your ~/Library/Caches/Opera/ directory then do a manual upgrade to get it working, see this article:

It's quite long time ago since I last tried Opera, and still the same problem as then: Opera won't import my Safari bookmarks (and can not find Firefox bookmarks). Yes, it finds the right place in my own library/Safari/bookmarks.plist, but you can't choose it because it's grayed out! Exactly the same thing as before! And I have different machine as then.

I have very very many bookmarks and I am not going to put them all in opera manually. So goodbye again Opera.

MACINEN:

I was surprised at your post -- I was pretty sure I had painlessly imported my Safari bookmarks when I first tried out Opera 10.0.

So, I just tried it again: Bookmarks >Manage Bookmarks, then to File Menu and Import and Export > Import Safari Bookmarks.

Did that, in about 2 seconds 4,000 plus Safari bookmarks were sitting there in a new folder called Safari Bookmarks. Ditto, Firefox, which also has over 4,000 bookmarks.

I'm using Safari 4.0.3 on Snow Leopard on a Duo Core iMac.

Wonder what the difference is between our two systems, that I get success and you a fail?

Btw, to avoid this kind of hassle, I use the amazing Bookdog to sync my bookmarks between browsers -- I use Firefox 3.0, Safari, iCab, and my main squeeze, OmniWeb, and Bookdog keeps everything in perfect sync, even dealing with the fact that Firefox doesn't allow the kind of dupes that the other browsers do.

Anyway, this isn't an ad for Bookdog - just wanted to say that Safari bookmark import flawlessly into Opera 10.0, and ditto on my laptop.

Also, if you really want to give Opera 10 a shot, and you can't get Opera's built-in import to work, just go to Safari, open the Bookmarks window and do an Export Bookmarks from the File Menu. In just a few seconds, you'll have a html file that Opera can open easily. Just tried it out to be sure, and again, my 4,000 plus Safari bookmarks were in Opera in a flash.

Super easy import of Safari bookmarks. Not quite sure why you're having trouble, but check the help for Opera. I still prefer Safari, but Opera is fast, stable and a good and the new Unite is interesting.

As much as can be said for Opera 10.0b1, you can NOT run Opera 10b1 on a case-sensitive format with Leopard 10.5.7.

After much trial and error over the last year, I finally tri-partitioned my 320gb hard drive for work, games, and school. The first format was case-sensitive as it has shown me a rock like dependability that the simply journaled format doesn't have. The second the normal format so things like WoW work. The third for windows rc 7.

The case-sensitive format has a few things that show up differently
- some programs don't install or work, or work partially like Opera 10b1
- Manga Studio 3.02 EX works faster... significantly
- WoW doesn't install
- Programs appear to crash less and load slightly faster
- There are no temporary duplicate displays when working in finder (Leopard 10.5.7)

As is the standard, Omniweb just works.

That's interesting... How can I case sensitive file system perform faster? The opposite sounds more reasonable to me (but I don't know much about file systems, so I'm be terribly wrong).

About OmniWeb-as much as I like its GUI-for some reason it has always crashed within a relatively short timeframe every time I've decided to give it a shot.

OmniWeb has never crashed even once since I began using it as my default browser 14 months ago. Try the latest build of 5.10 and if it crashes send a crash report and get help at: http://www.omnigroup.com/applications/omniweb/ No single browser has everything we might want but OW is the most customizable-without-extensions browser I've ever used.
