Windows 7: Opera guru needed!

Opera guru needed!

Hey, I've been using Opera 10 for about 30 mins and I like it!

One of the most important aspect of any browser (at least to me) is to make it/customize it, so that it would do what you want!

I'm still learning to tweak via opera:config, however there is one thing I desperately need, "Zoom" settings for individual sites. Is there anyway or is there plugins/extensions which will remember individual sites (like FireFox's default built in Zoom would) rather than the default Opera's Zoom where if you set 110% then all sites would Zoom to 110%.

Also, using this chap's Adblock/Element helper kinda slows down Opera, is this right? Fanboy's Adblock List for Opera


p/s is there any links/sites for Opera newbie?

It doesn't zoom everything with me, if I have multiple tabs one can be 100% the other 230% and etc. , maybe you're not using the latest version? Otherwise try windowed browsing.
Open opera and find some link in a website - right click and say open in new window.
Now you have 2 operas. In the first you can open pages you don't want to zoom and in the second pages you want to zoom. I still can't help you about remembering zoom settings though...

Any links/sites for Opera newbie?

Not all settings are there you know!
There's also Tools/Preferences and Tools/Appearance

Hope it works!

Thanks D.W.96, much appreciated!

Opera 10 is so much nicer than the Opera I tried few yrs ago and it's growing on me, with the exception of not being able to display few sites probably (**Google mail/ is one of them)...Opera 10 is very good!

**On, after entering my login name/password.....the web page just sit there doing nothing, but if I hit refresh, then it would take me to my gmail inbox, lol!

Don't know, I have G-mail too, but no such issue appears.
And thanks for the rep!

I have set my Opera to remember the User/Pass for my mail, I'm not sure but you can try it too, it may help with that!

Hey dw96, I found out my gmail problem, it's not Opera, but the Fanboy's Adblock List/Element Hider for Opera @ Fanboy's Adblock List for Opera and once removed gmail is OK! (now I just have to find out which filter in there is causing this).

Have a great day!
