Opera comes with kitchen sink?
« on: August 05, 2021, 09:35 AM »
Anyone notice that Opera chromium based browser has exploded in size all of a sudden?  Unbidden they added a bunch of features that bloated the carcass too much for me.  I went bacjk to version 76.0.4017.94 and installed it importing bookmarks and extensions from the default browser(which was the new Opera  update.)  Then I renamed opera_autoupdate.exe to opera_autoupdate_NOT.exe and deleted the subfolders full of old updates.

If I was on a 1/2 TB SSD I probably would not care but I am using 32GB of estorage and stuff gets cramped quickly!   8)
