The shameless plagiarists = Vivaldi, UC browser, Brave, many others, etc...

You can easily tell them apart because they look exactly like Chrome! Open the Options as an example… you’ll find exactly the same crap in there!

You might as well use Chrome if you’re into that style...

I don't believe that is the case Get Real.

These browsers are Chromium-based. But in order for Vivaldi etc to be able to do what they do, the developers would have had to have added their own code.

Brave is good for its privacy. the most secure browser out of the box.

You can't tell me Chromium is as secure as Brave.

Nope, mine is the most gorgeous... a true work of art not plagiarist bollocks.

Nothing looks like it or performs like it... 8)

Why don't you download them and run Panopticlick on them... :lol:

Well, you gonna have to pull your finger out because I am quite happy to use your browser. I just expect all the Opera bells and whistles and am disappointed with even Chrome which don't offer anything like it.

You need to do pop out video and gestures Get Reall. battery saver and VPN, and a nice speed dial too. Screen capture too. Also tab stacking and tiling, please.

I use Opera as my go to, then Vivaldi.

I could add gestures in about 15 minutes, but I don’t like them… I think they’re stupid and indeed they are dying in the browser world.

battery saver

Here's a "secret"... while holding down a laptop's [FN] key, keep pressing [F6] or [F7]. That should dim your screen enough to save battery consumption! :lol:

Screen capture too.

Already have that.

Why don't you add all the stuff (including gestures) and leave it up to the user whether they use it or not?

Gestures and shortcuts save a lot of time.

As for battery saver, it is automatic when there is no power source.

Because users are stupid and I know what's best for them. :)

The onus of energy issues is on the operating system (Windows).

It is not the bowser’s problem so browsers shouldn’t get involved in that department.

What Opera is selling you already exists and is managed by Windows, if you know how to use it.

Opera just do it differently. Windows manage it by reducing brightness.

Opera reduce energy usage by reducing your downloads - a bit like Turbo Search.

Also, that is not the attitude to have. You should be more flexible and let people have the capability of using your product in a highly customizable manner - with gestures and all.
