    I'm using Basilisk most, but sometimes also Opera 12 (for email or few other sites that are still supporting this very good old browser). Question - is there some WinXP browser similar to Opera 12 in this world?

    "Otter Browser aims to recreate the best aspects of the classic Opera (12.x) UI using Qt5."
    https://otter-browser.org/

    I have it installed over a year but have not used it much. Once I recall it got me somewhere that the RoyTam1 or MyPal 29 couldn't but I am using MyPal 68 and Chrome 360 13 now. I do keep an eye on otter development though.

    A little confusing, I have v1.0.81 weekly 420 (2022-01-22):
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/otter-browser/files/otter-browser-weekly420/
    their v1.0.0.3 is dated 2022-03-03
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/otter-browser/files/otter-browser-1.0.03/
    Long Story Short, I went with the dates and tried to upgrade to 2022-03-03 the browser told me update available and I reinstalled 2022-01-22.
    The attribute stamps on the files also show the mix-up.
    I imagine they mis-dated their files.

    I presume you have Opera 12.18. AFAIK the last version made. It came out after Opera announced ending v12 at 12.17
