I have the same...very fast!

One extension is called Scrapebook which allows you to capture any web page and file it in folders of your choice that you've created right in the browser. I pay my bills online and when I want a copy of the payment confirmation to save it's just a couple of clicks and I have it filed for my reference. I'm going to take a look a Opera.

Opera doesn't use an extension of this sort. You simply go to File>Save As and name the file as you choose and save it to the location that you want, and it has an .mht file extension. By clicking on that file, it will open and display that page in Opera.

Opera uses [the useless] widget system. It can run userscripts, however, from Userscripts.org: Power-ups for your browser, which are meant to be used with Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

Just go to this thread: https://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-...ser-betas.html

Scroll down to Firefox, select which version you want, then find the file that ends in installer.exe and get that one.

I tried Opera a year or two ago, found the interface confusing....not enough help and explanation then. I'm going to download and take a look at the newest version though.

I have tried the latest Opera twice and each time it hard-locked when using Flash Player. Nice GUI, but a GUI does not a browser make.
