It also works OK for me (unpacking with UE -WUN method)!
I skipped version 10.62 though due to the numerous bugs users have posted in the comments there.

But I have another dilemma right now: I find myself using more and more Firefox 4 (pre beta 6 now)! It is fantastic! And the main reason (although a superficial one) is the inflexibility of Opera's Speed Dial! I'm addicted to the amount of options FF Speed Dial's addon has to offer (mainly the grouping feature). I'm not a bookmark guy! Of course the new design and fluidity of FF 4 has a role! It's almost like Opera! :)

I only like the bookmark toolbar in Firefox, especially when adding RSS feeds! But Opera is still superior.

I never got used to using the bookmark toolbar. In fact I use no (extra) toolbar at all (only the navigation toolbar).
But there are hopes that Opera's Speed dial will improve. There are many topics on their forums where users ask for more options.

well, i was getting something like "the file should be extracted with the "WUN UNPACKER" option, but there was an error" - error report...
doesn't matter now, i've managed to extract it in another pc...

thank you for your help, guiness

UPDATE : i've managed to extract it in another pc USING UE 1.5..still getting the same error here no matter what UE version i use (tried with 1.5, 1.6, 1.6.1)

Happy to Help!

Good news! Seems Opera have introduced a Bookmark Bar feature - http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/20 ... kmarks-bar, seems prayers are being answered!

I don't see why they called it new, it looks just like the personal bar. Unless you can call something new if you give it a different name. :)

well, better late than ever! :)
this "Bookmark Bar" should have been added at least 2 versions ago (see v9)...

to Hydaral: yes it looks like the personal bar, but it can be placed in different positions, and that's something *new* for opera.
Being something *new* will atract more attention, than being a simple line in a changelog

The bookmark bar is the same as the old one is it not?
Still waiting for Opera to bring back the bookmark star they had in an older version of Opera.

Firefox took this feature and improved on it.
is it stealth? ;)

Opera which is currently posting a pre-Beta snapshot, have just released a new commandline to the Opera.exe, -profilinglog. It will create a log file of what is causing Opera to become slow during startup & shutdown (for those who have this problem.)

Opera 11 >> http://www.opera.com/browser/next/ And http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/20 ... extensions. It will basically support extensions, so a real contender for Chrome and Firefox!
