Usually, new builds of the Opera desktop browser go through a six-week development cycle, but version 47 has been accelerated from this and is now available in its stable channel. Top of the list of new hotness for users is exportable bookmarks. So if you need to or just decide to go off to a different browser, you can finally take them with you.
Besides this, Opera users can expect much smoother playback of video, particularly notable for those on Windows 7.
There are also improvements to the background loading of your news feed, design tweaks and a few more bits besides. Check out the full release notes on the Opera blog.

Edge is working fine for now... WC should have a battle of the browsers to see which one really is better. That would be interesting.
This website is the same on any browser (phones and PC) I used, unstable and slow because of myriad ads. Now even app (8.1) doesn't show comments for any article. Also this site crashes IE (just crashed 3 times) and UCbrowser on 8.1 (got 3 phones). Idk should I be surprised or not but AndroidCentral work better even on Lumia 635 (I had to type this on android phone. Sad)
Hmm, I think I'll give it a try again.
I really want to like Opera...I do...but my inability to switch my default browser on W10M kept me from using it. So ultimately I blame MS for forcing Edge on to me. Now, I'm all in on Edge.
