Opera 37 Beta with ad blocking and website settings

  • We are happy to announce release of Opera 37 Beta 1!

    This release includes several new features and improvements.

    Enable Opera's ad blocker to banish ads to save even more data with Opera! Just go to Settings, open Data Savings and enable ad blocking. There is a known issue which will be fixed in the next beta - you need to restart Opera for ad blocking to take effect.

    Another major feature we introduce in 37 is website settings. From now on, you can control access for geolocation, camera and microphone for each site individually and change it whenever you need it. We are planning to include even more settings that you will be able to tune for each site.

    Opera now supports multi-window mode! On all phones with this feature, you can now use Opera in that mode.

    And some minor improvements: the Speed Dials icons are rendered on the Opera side, so no more ugly thumbnails. It fetches the best icon from the site and if there isn't one, Opera will generate it!

    Another minor feature: if you want to save a file and you don't have enough space for that, a friendly dialog will be displayed.

    The update is available on Google Play! We hope you will like the new changes and are looking forward to your feedback!

  • 1.Ad block is not good enough as there are some sites still have ads shown as compare to other browser.
    2.The speed dial icon couldn't fetch GSMarena, just showing "G" while the opera version 36 is showing GSMarena icon.
    3.The start up for the browser is too slow, need to improve on that.
    4.Should add option to download and save to external SD card.
    5.Suggest to pin the "save page" and "bookmark" on the top of the speed dial page just like opera mini

    Overall is good, I really like opera layout and its simplicity. The ad block definitely is the best thing to have just need some more improvements.

  • Gosh, what have you done? Thumbnails in saved pages show just first letterof site, it used to show thumbnail of site content. The same is happening with pages on speed-dial. Fix it pls.

  • Ad blocking has another flavor, a better one (tete-a-tete Opera Mini). Well, interstitial redirections still persists on background tabs, otherwise is on par with adblock on fennec. Some javascript redirections and trackers are killed too.

  • I hope you're just joking with this. Love to see that Wiseman who created such stupidity. How can be even possible for better navigation showing just letters? And it's not only "saved page" folder but it happens for whole speed-dial. Gosh... Where do you go for such crazy ideas???!!!

  • @mrninko

    Thanks for the input. We are working on improving SD icons for the final release.

  • I would like to suggest search engine shortcuts. I have before, just a reminder. Thanks

  • There's still issue, which happens for a long period, with signing in into beta testing. It has been reported few times by me in previous versions but you were still not be able to fix the problem! As you can see from video https://youtu.be/phcWQH_FOzw
    if I click on become tester button it just ipen another same window. And I can continue this way endless time. So wpuld be nice to make it works properly finally!
    And another thing, the opened card sector shows just white pages, so that's the poit to have shown such big icons in card selector. Do you plan to do something with it finally. You just presented some feature and never finish it.

  • Webgl ain't so buggy anymore on devices powered by Imagination Tech.

  • Opera Mobile crashed on my Samsung Galaxy J5, Android 5.1.1.Opera hangs my phone every time I enter a speed dial.I have to pull out the battery each time. the same thing has happened on older versions with new speed dial. but when you turn off the option in about:flags > Use old tabs, opera run without a problems. Probably memory leaks or something.

  • And big please to add option custom list for adblock.

  • Any thoughts of adding ability to search bookmarks?

    Can't you search using the address bar?

    YES, but if I am already in bookmarks I wan to be able to search in bookmarks.

  • ADBLOCK feature should be standalone feature, NOT involved in saving data feature. I wanna use adblock all the time while on wifi with high quality of loaded pictures and alson while I'm on mobile data with low wuality of picture and NOT enter into settings and change loading quality all the time.

  • Then use Adblock standalone app for WiFi.

  • First - I'm not rooted, second - on play store there're just adblock browsers and some apps with rating under 3 so ooooops, bad idea fella

  • ADBLOCK feature should be standalone feature, NOT involved in saving data feature.

    Ad-block is done server side, that's why it depends on data saving to be turned on.

  • But it could be be done the same way but with standalone on/off switch. Wouldn't it be better?

    They would have to add a server just for it.
