Unlike Google Chrome this one actually looks nice and almost native on Windows 8 machines. I just hope they will add support for jump lists soon.

One thing that bothers me about the Opera GUI though is why is the tab par is about 2 pixels away from the screen edge, it makes it far less efficient to switch tabs than if they would simply touch the edge.

Don't know if that's totally what makes it "worthless" but definitely not the Opera I've ALWAYS used since version 5.04!

And I'm not even using this version yet! Been reading to many bad things about it though.

Yeah, you mean the one they've already rewritten a few times over the years?

Opera has been through many transformations - it's incredibly shortsighted to see this as anything but the start of a new version which they'll be adding a heck of a lot of features to. First job was to get onto the blink engine - next job is to differentiate via the UI (which is their own, from scratch btw). Personally I think they've done a good job - it's much faster (like it or not) and stable too. A good start. I think i'll give them a little time to develop it before I throw my toys out of my pram..

We are on the same wagon. Although I pity myself that Presto wasn't continued... It was a hell necessary and smart move from these people. Opera 12 became the slowest browser out of the bunch: JavaScript, Loading Times, Stability, and Browser overall speed were slower than the competition.

It was needed, and it was time to move on. Luckily we have a couple of months, if not a year or two, before these people patch up the new Opera before saying bye bye to Opera 12.
