Problems with Opera Portable Edition 12.11:

I have installed this version, everything seems to be fine; but it does have problems with updates. It simply wiped out all the custom menus, keyword and the tool bar INI files and also custom skin files while updating. I really don't think the installation should take place like this. But after some research I have found that you should have the backup Option for the above mentioned files; or else save all the files in some other folder so that it do get wiped off your computer. I hope you like the review of Opera Portable Edition 12.11; and I would like to rate it three and a half out of five.
