Opera 36 beta released with a new tab switcher!

  • To me the advantage to the new tab switcher is that it is possible to scroll through tabs faster, and with the mini thumbnails one can get a big picture view of the tab order. I think it would have been better to keep you old ui and make it so that scrolling outside (below) the thumbnails is faster. The size of the old thumbnails was fine, the new ones are bigger but the page titles are shorter so no real advantage there. I wish they could keep the old ui and just add mini thumbs

    I do want to say big thank you for fixing the pull down to refresh feature.

  • There's issue with new tab switcher. Earlier one use to show page content, but this one show just white nothing. To show content of page in card of tab switcher you have to first view that page fullscreen and then when you open tab switcher it shows content.

    I'm not seeing that issue here. Does it happens only if opened tabs are from the same domain?

  • Opera never ask me to save login info for Chase bank. I was hoping this would work with the new version but no luck. A real pain it is 😞

    I suppose Chase is trying not to allow auto login on mobil phones. But then again it works in the lastpass browser, but I hate having to leave opera to accomplish this

    Happens for all my open pages at background

  • I have seen the blank pages once

  • هل هناك قسم خاص للذين يتكلمون اللغة العربية ؟

  • Has anyone else had any problems updating and now reinstalling the latest opera beta?

    The standard Opera installation on the same device (Galaxy S4) is fine, both the standard and beta installations on my tablet (Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4) are fine as is the desktop installation of standard Opera that I'm using right now.

    I went through the whole google play troubleshooting checklist already.

    Any ideas?

  • OK, this seems to be a google play issue and not an Opera issue.
    I finally got it installed, so disregard.

    There's an issue with download manager. Description:

    1. download some file from internet (e.g. some picture from google)
    2. download manager notifies you about successful downloading (default folder "Download")
    3. minimize Opera beta app, use some file manager to find this file (picture) and erase it
    4. open Opera beta from background and save the same file (picture) again
    5. download manager notifies you that this file already exists and ask you to rewrite it
    6. click on OK and manager notifies you about successful downloading, but here it comes
    7. open download folder using file manager - there is not downloaded any file (picture) despite download manager said something else

    To solve this problem, you have to manually delet this file (or just log about its downloading) from download managet to be possible download it second time again for real. And why is it problem? Because:

    1. manytimes you have to download same file(s) again even erased ones
    2. there're lots of files over internet and many times I stumbled on files with same names but with different content

    Reporting again. There's issue with video downloading. On some pages is impossible to download video. After long click on video it shows possibility to download it but after clicking on download "button" nothing happens.

  • I think the beta versions should have the beta logo instead of the full red one so those of us who have both installed won't get confused as the which version we are using

    I've posted this earlier few time still nothing happened.

  • I think the beta versions should have the beta logo instead of the full red one so those of us who have both installed won't get confused as the which version we are using

    But their icons are different. The beta has the beta icon (half gray, half red) and stable has the full red icon.

    What we are talking about is when the app is open. The "O" menu icon at the bottom right in the classic layout is the same in both versions

  • Could be nice to see tab switcher in old visual design with mirror under pages and effect of depth while scrolling tabs but in full screen like in this version. Interesting to compare both implementations. In new version animation of selected tab is too fast for me.

    I noticed the same issue, when you load up some webpages the tabs are white, however when you open all your tabs then they will show a preview picture.
    Another issue im having is that there's a delay when opening the tab switcher, sometimes up to a second long. This is on a brand new galaxy s7, closing the tab switcher is instant, but opening it there's a delay.

  • I've reported issue with page rendering (ubi shop) in version 35 beta, but it still persists.
    This is what I'm talking about, completely page disorder: https://youtu.be/WfoJPxgKRx4

  • And there's one big issue with interacting on google+ site. I use it mainly for beta test communities to test apps. But when I wanna become tester ans clickon "become tester" button what it does is that it redirects me to the same page in new opened window. Would e fine finally fix it!!! This glitch is here since I start using google+ comunities (2-3 years)...
    Just see in video here: https://youtu.be/ZTBuK_HREFk

  • Suggestion for developer

    Change tab switch background colour to black

    Please add dark or night theme / mode

    Will be much appreciated

  • I literally signed up to tell you this because it seems no one will read my email:

    Hi,

    I've been a faithful user of Opera on my phone for the last two years. The main reason I love opera is how lightweight it is, how the textwrapping actually works and how the tab managing isn't horrible.

    Or, I should say WASN'T horrible now since the last update change tab handling to the exact horrible system other apps use. Please consider rolling back this terrible 'improvement' because in this case I might as well switch to chrome. The beauty of Opera was that I didn't need to reach across half my screen to select or close tabs, now it's just like every browser out there.

    I hope you will consider my opinion since I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks like this.

    Kind regards,
    Richard from South Korea
