Opera Software Since the launch of Opera 10.5 in March 2010, I've been using it as my primary browser, whether at work or at home. Using Ubuntu at work, and a Windows netbook at home, I wanted a fast browser for my netbook and a coherent browsing experience on both operating systems. And this is where Opera 10.5 (and newer) fits perfectly.

Hi,

""The new back and forward buttons doesn’t offer the list of visited websites."
WTF? You must be using a different Opera than me. I've used it since 6.0something and it certainly doesn't lack the list. Just press and hold back button or forward button and the list will appear.

This isn't the same feature. Pressing and holding may be acceptable if using a mouse, but not if using a trackpad.
"
I guess your trackpad has buttons. Holding a button shouldn't be that hard. But if you really don't want to "click and hold", the Back and Forward buttons are available in a different flavor that features the arrows you are talking about. Right click on the icon bar, Customize > Appearance > Buttons tab > "Browser" category. You know the rest.

But yes, you're right. I also think the default buttons should have had the arrows.

However, I didn't understand your relating the arrow to the closed tabs bin. The concepts attached to each seem different to me: the page history vs the history of closed tabs. You can't select a specific previous page you had visited from the closed tabs bin.
