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.

Its THEIR own way ...

Another missing shortcut, and this time with no solution, is the CTRL + URL to open a new tab in the background. This shortcut is the most used keyboard shortcut in browsers, and all browsers support it... Except Opera! (In Opera, two keyboard buttons are needed for this, SHIFT + CTRL + URL). Not only Opera doesn’t offer it by default, but there is no way to add it using Opera’s own configuration tools. Some javascript hacks exists to try to offer similar functionality, but this isn’t the same. Opera needs to add this shortcut by default.


Tell me, WHY would Opera would want to mimic others while they have THEIR OWN ways to do things?

Yes, it should be possible to change the default behaviour, but saying that Opera would be better because it would mimic others browsers shortcuts its nonesense.

Just think about HOW MANY features OTHER browsers 'stolen' from Opera ... and now THEY are THE standart?

Wow, that's a lot of shouting
(Firefox's spell-check found error's in between the shouts)
