Opera Software The new WebKit Opera for Android has been released. "Opera 14 for Android is built on top of Chromium 26, with a total overhaul of the UI in native code, making it fit well with the latest Android design guidelines. Go get the build from Google Play or point your browser to m.opera.com, and give it a spin!"

I am not usually this blunt but this latest version of Opera compared to its immediate predecessor is utter pants (Galaxy S2, Android 4.04):

UI: why is the default screen in use the view of one's history, seemingly?
Constant hanging
Can't deal with webforms
Copy and paste is borked

To name but the most obvious cock-ups.

Honestly, it's so bad I have reverted to the stock Orange/EE browser, which is actually *better* now in comparison!

I have supported Opera for years. I am very sad.
