Opera Software Opera 15, the brand new version of Opera based on Chromium and Blink, has been released today. I'm still missing a bookmarks bar and a bookmark import feature. Other than that, I'm really liking Opera 15. I hope they bring those two features back soon, because I cannot use a browser without them.

This was exactly my thought. I've been using Opera for about 10 years now as my primary browser because it feels like _my_ browser. It's fast, it is flexible and I could shape it to work exactly the way I wanted. It was feature rich, fast and carried a small footprint, but the most important thing was I could turn on/off features as I saw fit and adjust the interface to look the way I wanted it to look. If they throw away the flexibility, the high level of customization then Opera (with the new engine) becomes just a another cheap Chromium rip-off.
