Opera link... they killed link ? The others I don't care about but why would they remove link...
Too many things have been removed
They shouldn't have "released" this in such matter for such a simple build.
The thing people are complaining about was that this is essentially not Opera. It's a webkit/blink renderer on a really simple shell which does next to nothing. What is so 'bleeding edge' about that?
It might have been better if they added some of the Opera-exclusive features into this build, even if they were half-baked. Right now, it's just a crippled Chrome.
But is it worth releasing an alpha, if it means losing your identity? None of the things that uniquely defines Opera is present in this build.

The real kicker is that they (opera devs) keep saying that bookmarks will not be coming to Opera... They want us to use Stash/Speed Dial instead.

Speed dial has always been my favorite opera feature, I'm glad they are focusing on it. Opera's speed dial is so much better than chrome/firerfox's new tab pages.

Should probably have a new topic for stable, but I think I'll wait for 16 or whenever bookmarks make it back, even though I just store stuff there and never actually use them at least link is in.
good progress though.

So, the finalised build is released, and they haven't put back any of the decent features that were removed, leaving it
even more dumbed down than Chrome. Opera is now DEAD. It has gone from being one of the most customisable
and useful browsers around to the opposite ... no customisation, dumbed down and utterly useless. Pathetic.
Opera is now about as relevant as Netscape.
