Smile: Our New Emoticons Have Arrived!

Fantastic! :mrgreen:

It’s not as great as the ones My Opera had, but it is an improvement. 😎

Hopefully they will add more and new expressive ones as time goes by! 😀 News

Fan of smileys? 🙂 We are. That’s why we just redesigned them to be cleaner, simpler, bigger, more expressive, and modern.

😉 😀

These new smileys are actually vector graphics, so they’ll stay crisp if you zoom in on your page. They’ll also stay sharp on high-resolution mobile displays.

😎 ⭐

To find out how to use an emoticon appearing in this post, just hover over it and you’ll see which characters produce it. We’re working on expanding our collection, so stay tuned for more smiley fun.

XD >:D 😦 😥 😐 :/ 😮 😛 😡 O_o ^^’

If you’re not a fan of smileys, that’s okay! You can always turn them off and on in your dasbhoard under Settings  Writing. We hope you’ll have fun with these. Smile!

Bonus: We also created a few secret emoticons for you to discover. Good luck finding them! 😉

My Opera Presents: Vivaldi

Great news for those that still looking for a place to go after My Opera closes. Jon von Tetzchner is inviting us to join a social media web site by the name of 😎


I immediately made an account to poke around and see how it works, and I thought it looked pretty good!  You can’t customize your blog like you could in My Opera or do in WordPress, but I think it’s good enough to keep the community going. 😀

I’m already hooked and happy with WordPress for blog, but I will use the rest of the features they offer. :mrgreen:

I think it was really nice that Jon didn’t forget about us ex-My Opera and Opera users. 😎

Now, where I can download the Vivaldi browser? ❗ 😉 😆

The End

Main blog URL:

Opera-DeathAfter many years of using Opera and My Opera, seeing it succumb to the corporate pressures was very sad. Opera was the best browser and had a great community. 😦

Now I’m starting the new year with a new browser SeaMonkey, and a new blog host WordPress, and hopefully I can find a new community with them.

Now that I’m done with Opera and My Opera, it doesn’t mean I’ll stop lurking and posting in the forum and other blogs. Plus I’ll add new entries to the old blog linking to my new. 🙂

The cool thing about WordPress is that you can also post using different accounts like your Google, Facebook and Twitter. Plus, anonymous posting is allowed too! 😎

Welcome here! 😉

It is time now to abandon ship



It is time now to abandon ship My Opera! 😮

I wouldn’t say I am surprised with the decision of closing down My Opera. But it is the sad conclusion after more than a year of Opera’s bad decisions, starting with Jon S. von Tetzchner leaving, the Unite, M2, and Presto fiasco, etc… 😡

One thing, after many years of using Opera, (since version 3, and starting with 5 as a default browser) I no longer use it. I uninstalled everything Opera and moved to SeaMonkey for good. 😈 In a way I went back to my previous browser Netscape. :mrgreen:

As for this blog, I might move to WordPress or another blog hosting. I don’t know yet. It’s just a silly little Batman blog. 😉

Important announcement about your My Opera account

Welcome to a new and improved My Opera

Opera released a new version of My Opera with many welcome improvements and features. The new interface now match the web site. I also noticed that the Widgets and Opera Portal web sites reflect the new design.

Still, there are some bugs and missing features that the old version used to have. It is going to take awhile to get used to it, but so far I’m liking what I’m seeing. 🙂
