Best thing for me in Opera

Postby richard mitnick » Wed 22 Aug, 2012 12:08 pm

Hey folks, I have not been around for a while, sorry.

Just coming in to say, I am using Opera as the default browser now for quite a while on five machines. The best thing for me about Opera is the Password Manager, which so far seems faultless. No more need for Roboform or any other third party utility.

I hope all is well with everyone.

Welcome back Richard.

Good to know that. Just curious, how's the built-in password manager (in Firefox) compare to Opera?

Antony-

Hey, Dude, how are you. FF's built in does not compare. That was why I went to Roboform. But, SeaMonkey's, the browser I really love, was even worse, and Roboform does not support SeaMonkey except with their on line thing, which I will not use. So, far, Opera is just getting it all done for me, including at work three financial institutions and one power company.

Opera is a very innovative company and their browser is no slouch. It's strange that it never really caught on much with the public at large. For PW managers I continue to use Lastpass Free. It's the manager recommended by Steve Gibson, Leo Laporte and Paul Thurrott so it's good enough for me as well. Works like a charm and syncs across all my devices.

I wish they would fix the bugs, espacially in Mac Opera.

Well, I use the built-in ones in Firefox and Safari. For more serious passwords, I use Yajimbo to store it, and manually reveal and type in myself. I know I am old schooled.

Indeed... you are very old school, Antony, unlike Don who is modern in picturesque Quincey.

What's the best in Opera? It does not overload the RAM and works incredibly fast. Have you seen the new Opera concept, Opera Neon?
