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 isn't a matter of it being a new version that just needs to be developed further. The developers have made it clear that they're creating a stripped down browser to appeal to Chrome fans, not long term Opera users who appreciate its more powerful interface.

Actually, it is a matter of being the first version after making a new browser. They'll add more features later, but obviously had to start with something simple and solid.

They made it clear that they want to appeal to Chrome fans? I'd like a link to that statement. Thanks.

Even bookmarks have been declared unnecessary clutter by the developers.

Really? Clutter? Link to statement again, please.
