what's new:

- increased bloat to 34 MiB (fairly recent version 9.23 had only 4 MiB http://www.oldversion.com/windows/opera/ only 6 years ago)

- it doesn't work anymore ("windowscodecs.dll" missing)

- suicided the Opera Prestro engine in favor of the webkit/chrome/blink (already in version 15)

- dropped APNG support

- added "suicide jumper" background (only if you get it running at all) Smile

Chrome is the best right now. Ahead of everyone even when it comes to web standards.

Is it true that Chrome will track you and phone home?

I'm still using FF3.6.28. What user-cool things am I missing out on?

Opera 12.16, the latest (and last) Presto-based version released less than a year ago was just 13 MB.


Chrome, Firefox and pretty much every mainstream browser has minimal features compared to the old Opera and is unusable on old hardware.

The new Opera has unfortunately joined that club.

If you allow it to. Those tracking settings are enabled by default. For example, you can sync all your Chrome data (Bookmarks, browsing and search History, ect) to your Android.

I disabled that way back. With that in mind sure you can be tracked and identified easily. Unfortunately most people do not know these settings exist as one has to dig deeper to find them.

Haha, and you believe in them? You are tracked no matter if you want or not.

If you don't want to be tracked, then disconnect from internet, burn your cells/home phones, tablets, dvd/blu-ray players, TVs, game consoles.

Otherwise, they're watching you.

Haha,if you alllow it to... I hope that was a joke!

It depends on who's using it actually. And yes if you allow those settings.

Seems I am not missing out on anything since no one jumped in and mentioned something. So I'll just stick with FF3.6.28 then.

Low life piece of turd. A dog has more manners than you.

Sorry, if I did something you didn't like. I do not know why all of this.

Sorry if I hurt you, it was not my intention.


You didn't hurt me in any way shape or form. You are just an annoying fuck. You need to get nuked bitch! MKAY? Very Happy I had held enough respect for you but now, and I don't even care how old you are are, you are a BIIIIIITCH!!!. FUCK YOU AND ALL YOUR ANCESTORS, AND UNBORN CHILDREN (If you will have any after I castrate your little raisins). Go back to Brazil and do some plantain farming instead. lol.

In real life I'd have beaten your annoying fat ass. But since I can't do that, the above will do.

But shit, I digress.

WeBM and OPUS ... cca 200 KiB of code together. So it's a pretty bad deal to pay with 100's of MiB of bloat for those 2 tiny useful features. Oh well ... check out good old DOSLynx http://users.ohiohills.com/fmacall/ (if page doesn't work use another proxy ...)

Ahead of everyone when it comes to web standards? Probably
But recents versions of Chrome are memory hungrier compared to the old ones, I think Confused

But still 32 GB is very amazing, for simple users/non developers.

so the developers think they can let their programs to consume more and more memory without any sense. Not a intelligent decision, but this is what is happening.


Probably this has something to do with JavaScript JIT compilation?
Let's image if all web pages only used plain old HTML. No Flash, Java applets, JavaScript, etc etc Razz

I don't have to imagine that because that is what I always get. The www is usable without those memory hogging, spying, buggy, exploitable extras like JS etc..

Interesting. Different peoples have different browsing preference, I guess.
JS is well... unfortunately we still don't have cross-browser replacement for it.
