Posting this from Opera 15 myself but I'm finding it has a bit of catching up to do unfortunately. It does feel swifter than Opera 12 and has a bit of a cleaner look to it. But it is missing a number of features that I really liked from previous versions of Opera. Or even what you would expect from a modern browser these days. No ability to add search engines currently.

No true bookmarks solution. My wife misses the RSS reader and Notes from the previous version so she is refusing to upgrade until there is a decent replacement. I definitely miss being able to have a Diigo button in the toolbar. You can hack in Chrome extensions but the Diigo one doesn't work. No customization of the interface or customized gestures/keyboard shortcuts.

I'll stick it out for a while as I expect they'll fix a number of these issues as they go along. I do think they are tossing aside a number of their less patient user base needly though. It would have been better to hold off on a release until they had implemented some more of these features.
