Never understood the "it's <insert year> and <insert something we're incredulous about>" logic. What does the year have to do with anything? The year isn't like humanity's version number. Stuff that came with previous years isn't inherently obsolete just because it's now a later year.

It's 2012 and we're riding bicycles!
It's 2012 and we're cooking with fire!
It's 2012 and we're tying shoelaces!
It's 2012 and we're wearing glasses!

Yeah, we get it. There are better alternatives available for a crap ton of things we all still use regardless. Oh well.

Its not x64...there might be a beta..but Firefox is easily the most customizable browser..no debate on that. There are also multiple 64bit firefox builds.

Opera isn't that customizable, it's a great browser but it is not very customizable. That's why it is my secondary browser, because I can't customize it.

True. Palemoon x64 currently running with it too, and almost all Add-ons I've thrown to it, work.

I don't know what they did, but the browser is usable again.

I was having YouTube crashes, redrawing problems, and CPU outage when using Opera 12.01. Now the thing boots as a feather.

OK. Been using it for more than a half a day and I'm impressed. No crashes, memory in lower than normal state (Around 700 MB), multiple YouTube videos, very smooth performance, low CPU.

I'm really glad that they fixed what they fixed, which was broken from 12.01.

From the changelog

Windows-only
The Windows 32-bit version has been reverted to in-process plugins while stability issues stemming from the out-of-process plugin system are investigated and resolved

There is your answer.

Opera 12 has has been nothing but a disaster. 12.00 was a unusable and the 12.01 fix took over a month to get out.

Hope this one better.

Fortunately for Opera, Firefox 15 is just as bad.

I know about that. But I have been using 64 bit build since day zero. (Edit: Of course it was since Opera 12)
