Opera Software "Tabs. Mouse gestures. User-agent switcher. Dedicated transfer window. Pop-up blocking and javascript abuse filtering. Integrated search box. Page zoom. Session saver. Chew on those features. We'll be coming back to them."

If you get rid of all that, Opera will not be Opera anymore, and I might use Seamonkey instead, LOL.

I don't understand why using Delicious instead of the synced bookmarks. Synced bookmarks are really nice IMO.

I don't know why removing the IRC client. I don't use it because I don't chat but it doesn't hurt to have it. Granted that integration with commercial chat services such as MSN, ICQ, AIM, Jabber and Gmail would be nice for some people.

Widgets aren't extensions. They really *are* widgets, they are for your desktop, not for your browser. See: http://widgets.opera.com/

You're asking to remove M2 but... Many people use Opera mainly for M2 (it's my case). M2 is an excellent email client. I use webmail when I'm not at home or at work but a webmail will never be as fast as a desktop email client. I really can't imagine Opera without M2, that would be terrible...

One of Opera's advantages is the wealth of features. If you remove these features, you get...Mosaic.
