    I installed the Vivaldi browser since I wasn't happy with any other browser on my computer (Firefox and Chrome are slow, Opera crashes too much, can't get Safari 9 for Windows, etc.), I like it.

    I tried it, it's fast, UI is great, and I love how customisable it is, but I can't use a browser without RES or adblock.

    Vivaldi does have a content blocker built in if you turn it on.

    I was really sad to see the old versions of Opera die when they switched over to chromium. So I stayed with an outdated version for a while and eventually jumped to firefox because running a browser that hasn't received an update in 6 months is not the best of ideas. Honestly I have been quite happy with Firefox, I transitioned from using tab stacks to tab groups. But I am incredibly happy to see the OG opera devs once again working on a browser for power users, not a dummed down browser like Opera turned into (it didn't even have bookmarks implemented when they switched to chromium).

    Although I have never found a suitable replacement for Opera Mail. Opera mail has never received a single update in its entire lifetime, it was created when opera switched to chrome and has stayed at 1.0 ever since. And that's not to say that it doesn't have its issues. I was really hoping I could move to thunderbird, but in the end I could not get used to the workflow that thunderbird forces.

    Oh, nice. Still no RES, which sucks since at least half of my web browsing time is wasted spent on reddit.

    It seems to use the chrome extension store. So I think it does.

    just checked, you can totally install any chrome plug ins since it is chrome based.

    I have way too many other projects. I am also not skilled enough to create something with a UI quite as nice as opera Mail.
    The only bugs it has are emails being duplicated 3 times in search results and the load images button is occasionally not instant. Both slightly irritating, but I can live with them.

    eh, its not too hard to do though depending on how crude/polished you want it to be. I did a really quick and dirty command line email client in python within the span of a single computing lesson in 6th form.

    For A-Level I made a room booking system that connected to an email address to generate and send out notifications via SMTP. It was fairly simple to implement in .net .But I would not be able to create something of the scope of Opera Mail. Since it is essentially the email client from the old versions of Opera ripped out from the web browser. So it actually looks and functions like a web browser, but it only does email. But it does it in a way that I really like.

    personally I feel it is a really excellent email client, just that it is let down by Opera software themselves. Since it was made for the sole purpose of damage control between Opera opera and Chrome Opera. Therefore it has received no support at all since launch.
