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.

Not too thrilled.

Fast release cycle? Radically simpler UI? Fuck... here we go again. Chrome and Firefox all over again. I do intend to try it, but I am not happy with yet another browser using Chrome ideas. I was hoping they would "Opera-ify" Chrome (add advanced and unique features Opera is known for), but instead it looks like it's just going to be a re-branding.

Patience, I still have faith that they will Opera-ify Chromium soon.

Actually I prefer the more-native-look-and-feel of Opera 15 that the Chrome one.

I hope so, but their marketing page doesn't exactly leave me with much confidence.
