UI overhaul in Opera 37.1

  • Will there be an update to the old ui within the next week?
    Otherwise, after windows, this will be the end of my life with Opera (since late 90ies)....
    Anybody of the Opera-guys with a statement? I mean, reaction is about 99% negativ. Not only here.
    :bye:

  • Notice that back button doesn't work in many cases to reload previous page. But I mean software back button key (android one). Opera's back button works everytime, but could you fix it anyway as it used to work before?

  • Could you shrink gaps between items in "reading list" and "bookmarks"? There's wasted a lot of free/white space. Shrink it little bit please.

  • To whom it may concern.
    In a reply to my comment on Google Play I was asked about my opinion - If my understanding of the term 'beta' is correct, it would imply working in new features or making minor revisions, whereas you just removed about half of the functions, redid the design and yet made the app slower - every start takes approximately 3-5 seconds to display a static speed dial page. And there is no way of stopping the browser (as there was before with a long back key press) without going into memory management and stopping it. Not to mention the lack of the previously available modes of the interface.

  • What about to add immersive mode ( with possibility of full screen maybe?)

  • When the planned release
    37.1 to other countries?

  • Does this version bring back the option to use the old tab switcher from version 36?

  • 37.12.2192.106849

    dislike +++
    useless news feed wasting data.
    pointless search suggestions in kindergarden design.
    crappy unintuitive ui plus combined adress/search fields.
    twitter forcefeed and google data slurp included.

  • When the planned release
    37.1 to other countries?

    I don't think we will see anything more of 37.1, they have to fix listed issues to some extent, update the chromium version eventually, (I hope the last) and then release it as 38 beta with more countries as well. This looked like a quick preview because of the general outcry for a new version.

    Does this version bring back the option to use the old tab switcher from version 36?

    no

  • When the planned release

    Hopefully the day after never!

    I'm not enthusiastic for the direction Opera is going in here.

  • Does this version bring back the option to use the old tab switcher from version 36?

    Nope. And I don't think it will come back.

  • Also when you have open several pages and you are watching (from tap selector perspective) the last/rightest one and click on back button to close tjat page it throws you to SD page first/leftest one page instead of next one page which was opened befrore. For illustration :
    How it acts:
    Opened: SD, pg1, pg2, pg3, pg4
    You are viewing pg4 and close it with back button
    It throws you to SD
    How it used to work and should:
    You are viewing pg4 and close it with back button
    It shoul throws you to pg3

    After today's bug fix tjis is still happening!!! @operamilleson

  • Suggestions:

    1. Replace user agent menu with toggle switch; add the toggle switch to address bar; save user agent preferences for different pages.
    2. Bring back option to select/add suggested search terms to search field without immediate search upon selection - entering longer queries is now a real pain as suggestions cannot be utilized (except when entering the last word 🤦).
    3. Bring back the forward button.
    4. Switching between tabs could be simpler - like swiping the address bar a la Chrome.
    5. Speed dial syncing is required! I've had to redo it manually about 10 times already (different phones, resets, etc.), getting tired.

    Opera is still my favorite browser on mobile. Keep up the good work!

  • After bug fix update tab selector is white again (white tabs). Before that, first 37.1 launch, it works, noe not!

  • UI what? Overhaul? Is that a word because I don't speak my mother tongue. 🙂

  • Nice white tab selector after last update.

  • I've had those blank tabs randomly occuring ever since that tab switcher was dumped on us, regardless of software version.

    After a decade with Opera Mobile as my mobile browser of choice, I'm trying Firefox. The far from outstanding "improvements" Opera have been coming up with lately are a nuisance.

    I'm using Mini since June as well for the same reason. It looks so far that the direction Opera is heading with Mini is the more customizability, for more advanced users and smartphones, while O4A is the more simple one, more social orientated, for casuals and more for tablets.

    @mrninko can you describe more in detail. When I test:

    1. Open tab A from home page
    2. Click tab manager and open new tab B
    3. Click tab manager and open new tab C
    4. Close tab C, this will bring me to tab B
    5. Close tab B, this will bring me to tab A
    6. Close tab A, this will bring me to Home page

    This is how it works. In what scenario doesn't this work?

  • @operamilleson

    Here's video what I'm talking about https://youtu.be/byM2LRkqYR8

    I opened few pages from one page. Then I went to the last/rightest page and closed it with back button. In previous versions it used to skip/show next one page but now it throws you to first page (from which pages were open).

    Btw. you can also see that windows in tab selector are all white. This was fixed in first 37.1 version,but after update it happens again (that white thing).
