No visual effects on toolbar buttons (Opera 18)?

  • In Opera 18 there is no hover/mouse over effect on the toolbar buttons. When I move the cursor over a button or click one there is no visual feedback. Is this really by design?

  • This is by design. Look around on your Mac. This is the OS’ feel.

  • Fair enough, but that's only valid for the hover effect. Opera's buttons don't change even in their pressed state, which buttons do in e.g. Finder or Safari.

    Furthermore I think the reason I find the lack of hover effect jarring in Opera is that its buttons don't really look like buttons in other OS X apps, those are usually outlined and look like well... buttons.
