Of the remaining Windows 7 users, (and there a lot them) how many are going to continue using Win 7 after January 1st 2020? Amazingly about 35% of Windows devices are still Win 7. I plan on staying with Win 7 Pro and rely on 3rd. party software to keep me safe from the bad guys. When I do give up on Windows, I'm switching to Linux Mint. Win 10 will never be on anything I own. Just wondering! :sherlock:

Wondering if there was a update on the time line either for version 1.0 or RC 13? We haven't any updates since September. Still using Opera 12.18, but it's showing it age. Some sites just don't work without spoofing or writing javascript. That gets to be a pain. Those times, I use (chrome clone) Viavldi. Even then, I feel like I'm cheating on a girlfriend. Otter 1.0 would be a nice Christmas gift!  :happy:  :wait:

RC-6 has been doing just fine. It's been very stable for me. I've been posting comments and reviews on websites about our little browser.  I thought it would be fair of me to show what I have written.

{{{ I've been using Otter Browser for about a year and half now. Being a Opera user for about 18 years. I'm still hanging on to the last Presto engine with Opera 12.18. Just wish they hadn't gone and gotten all stupid, deciding to be Chrome's little brother. Call it what you want,,, it's Google! Most people don't know it, but the features that browser's have today, came from Opera. Multiple tabs, private browsing, saved sessions, popup/content blocker, mouse gestures and a great built-in e-mail client. There is more, just to many to list. Otter is the best browser holding on to the features and traditions that made Opera 12.18 great. Otter lets you customize it's look and feel any way you want. It's light and fast and has become very stable. In the past it was pretty buggie, but no longer is that the case. Most of the work on it has been under the hood. For that reason, Otter isn't the best looking girl at the dance. Going so far as to say, it has a face made more for radio. It's a work in progress that's coming along very nicely. After a coat of paint and hanging some curtains Otter will be everything Opera lost.}}}

Okay,  I'm a sales and marketing guy. I don't know jack about code, unless your talking about the code the wife and I use when we don't want the kids to know what we're talking about. I have written a little user JavaScript to get pages to work the way I want and knocked around finding that radio button someone did or didn't click to get the software working again. Along with knowing how to flash my Oneplus phone. It's better than most, but not great!
What I do know, is how to talk my ass off and get people to listen and I want this project to take wings and fly. If I can help in some way, let me know!

I've been a Opera user since 3.1. Remember the free ad base Opera? Hanging on to Opera 12.18 like wing man, thinking we would both go down fighting together. Then I found Otter and life was worth living again. It's been a couple of weeks of kicking tires on Otter and have to say, thank you. Even managed to set it's toolbars to look like my Opera. Not with pretty colors but, also knowing that it's still in infant stage, doesn't take away what it already as become and can be. Please don't give up on this great browser. I held out hope on Vivaldi. It's a nice browser, but seems to be turning into another Chrome clone. Whatever it is, it's not Opera 12.18.
I don't know a thing about how to write code but, if I can help in someway, I'd more than happy to help. Nothing would make me happier, than to show the big dogs what a browser should be. Thanks again!
