But did Opera users want such changes?

For many years I have been a user of the opera, not even a user, but a fan.
I liked everything about her;
  • She was comfortable. ( Grouping tabs, mouse gestures, wand, Speed ​​Dial .. )
  • Configured as I need. ( The bookmark bar, preview tabs, the ability to transfer the tab to another browser window on the neighboring monitor, in opera: config I can configure the behavior of the browser )
  • She had an email client, RSS, and even there was a Torrent client.

For the sake of such a convenient browser, I was ready to endure a bunch of its flaws, which in my opinion were more than compensated by its merits.

There is no desire to talk much, just to draw a line.

All this we were deprived!
No more customization, email client ... there is nothing for which I personally personally valued this browser.
... Oh, sorry mouse gestures and speed Dial still left.
They even cut the bookmarks, and before that, the sophisticated browser became a "window for browsing the Internet." It is viewing, not work.
And I was wondering, maybe I don’t understand something and these things were really superfluous, and everyone wanted to get rid of them?

UPD: At the request of ICELedyanoj a feature of the old opera, such as a fully customizable interface, was added to the survey.
