I've been using Opera for 15 years or more, but even in Opera I don't use the password manager that is built in. Haven't studied the latest chromium/blink based Opera to see if it inherits this behaviour, the versions I use store them encrypted supposedly, with a master password. I still use, are you ready for this...ZDNet's Password Pro, hehe! On my Windows PCs anyhow!
It never ceases to amaze me what people give up in the name of convenience!
