Text renders differently now, and they've made a total mess of the controls. They should have left well enough alone. You can find the old skins for 10.10 (which I DO like), but it's a pain to have to update the browser every time there's a new version. Checked out the Opera forums, and they have a habit of locking threads that complain about the changes. Not exactly something the instills warm fuzzies.

If you're talking about Opera on Windows, I can't say as I don't use it often enough to notice. I certainly haven't had to relearn how to use Opera on Windows.

On Linux, text looks fine to me. You must mean something different by "controls" than I do, or use the browser in a more complicated way. Back, forward, fast forward and fast rewind, redraw, Home, End, zoom out and in, all seem the same to me.

I have also heard that Google Chrome is available for Linux but I don’t know if it is compatible for the version of Linux in my other PC. Is there any compatibility issue for the Linux OS? I am thinking to change my browser fro my Linux.
