Hello everyone!

It is sooo expected to Opera at the first place :p
And it would be even better with both HTTPSB and µBlock with the right settings! ^^

Lol so many things people do not know about Opera.
Not saying its the fastest or the best, but 7 out of 10 features used within: IE, Chrome and FF are born at the Opera factory.
And the only reason they are still around while being one of the smallest browser developers in the world is due to the fact that they are good REALLY good. And for real Opera users they know how to run it and make it speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedy.

Yes. They lost many users when they decided to switch from their own Presto engine to Chromium Blink. Everyone was waiting to get the fantastic features back, but they're again on the right track! It's sad that so many people don't know anything about opera, because it definitely deserves more users.

I switched to Opera this year, and I really like it so far...except that I lose my favicons on restart after using ccleaner. I use Chrome for youtube (html5) because it is much faster than Opera for youtube for some reason.

Yep, chrome is faster on YouTube for me too...

Okay, so it's not just me. I am also using Opera mail which I like. I prefer it over Thunderbird, which I used to have. It has the features I need, it doesn't conflict with Avast, and it's super user friendly...and free!

When opera 25 will be released, it will fully support the right codecs to watch youtube in html5. (but we're right now still on 23) ;)

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it out! Thunderbird is slow and very buggy for me. I'm now using online mail.
