Opera 15: Twice as large with a fraction of the features
Published: Tuesday 2013-07-02.
So then it is finally released, Opera 15 for Windows and Mac (us Linux users seem to have to wait a bit longer). Opera 15 is the first version based on Chromium, and it does actually look fairly nice. It is just sad that the program has expanded to more than twice the size, while at the same time has lost a lot of the features the previous version had. Opera 15 is missing bookmarks, synchronisation, e-mail and RSS client, visual tabs and a lot of other features I use (it does have single-key shortcuts, fortunately).
The question is, which browser should I now use, after 17 years with Opera? Chrome can synchronise between the computer and phone, but then I have to give more of my data to Google (where I am a product and not a customer). Firefox I think can synchronise, but does not have a functioning mobile client as far as I know. None has a user interface that can be configured to look something even close to reasonable and the integrated e-mail client seems to have died out completely.
