If enabled, the video detach button will start tracking video elements when they are inserted into the document rather than created.
Removed flags: #procedural-tab-drawing, #search-in-closed-tabs-show-more and #weather-on-startpage.
Chromium is updated to version 87.0.4280.11.
Is there some feature you would love see added to Opera browser on computer? Let us know!
Make it possible to add your own service to the sidebar player.
I think the image describes itself, but you would be able to add any audio service you'd like, just by placing the link of it's website. Soundcloud for example.
I may be wrong but isn't the point of a forum like this to feed back users experiences, annoyances and possible issues to help the development?
I'm on Version:69.0.3686.95 and for every time it updates also and perhaps by the time I've written this a new update.
Well fancy that, on checking the version number it's updated to Version:70.0.3728.106 and guess what has popped back in, the Side Bar.
So to summarize, could this stop happening? This is on two separate machines and both have Side Bar disabled.
Do you people think you could try and keep your installation files organized instead of spewing them all over our computers like a kindergarten playground, even in totally unrelated folders??
Honestly, you'd think the stuff was put together by a bunch of first graders.
Bye Bye to Opera for me, I'll stay with the professionals.
I've been using Opera as my browser for the last 10+ years. I've seen new features come and other features go.
But since 2020, I don't know which update, you are seriously annoying me.
Every week some random messenger crap pops up on the sidebar.
A ) I'm not using the sidebar so I have it disabled
and B ) I'm not using any messenger.
So why does it keep re-enabling itself without asking me?
There's a reason I set my configuration the way I want it.
Stop trying to be Microsoft who "knows what's best for their users."
Just let me use my own browser the way I want to in peace.
Else I'll be leaving Opera behind for good.
I always use the full page History, as I don't use the lateral bar.
Anyway, I just tried it and the issue is pretty much the same. With the lateral history I get "today" with no date (fine so far), then "yesterday" with no date, but then comes "Monday 27", instead of "Tuesday 28" (it's Thursday already here).
