New version of Opera for Android with UI overhaul

  • New beta build 108734 with the following changes:

    • Download selector
    • Tablet mode selector in settings
    • Tablet back/forward buttons
    • News region/language switcher

    Still minimizing when accessing sync.
    Can't choose external SD card folder in order to download stuff there, despite changelog.
    Tapping on folders seems to be working now.
    Still on Chromium 50.
    The same usual countries with dozens others in Europe still missing.

  • Beta 37.2.2192.108734 Android 5.1 Verizon Ellipsis 10 tablet in tablet mode

    Problems & Inconsistencies Still Existing:

    Clicking Home (Speed Dial) from Bookmarks causes tabs to disappear. They are still there and reappear with Open New Tab.

    Clicking a Speed Dial icon opens a new tab before existing tabs; otherwise new tabs open after existing tabs.

  • @xirit32 for some reason adding youtube search on mobile site doesn't work,.
    But if you go to desktop version of youtube and long tap search field and add it as search engine. it will work in both desktop and mobile version.
    If you select to go to the desktop version from youtube link it will set a cookie to continue go to desktop site. just go to the mobile version again if you want use that version going forward. the youtube search engine will work regardless.

  • I upgraded today to version 37.2.2192.108735 and I quickly changed to Tablet layout because I do not like the new Mobile layout but I've found that I can not get rid of the annoying bottom bar. Why it can't be disabled?

    And now when I switch to another tab, the pages are reloaded more frequently than before. This is quite disappointing.

    I had this same problem. You need to switch back to Phone layout, then unselect the "Full Screen" setting. Then you can switch back to Tablet layout, and the bottom bar should be gone.

    I'm assuming it is a bug.

  • @jonaballen Thx for the tip, it works this way 🆙

    The trick seems to work. Thank you.

    Opera should check these things before launching a new version.

  • @andreasbovens

    I'm liking the improvements from the first beta release of this new design. Still not favoured over the old layout though. But if we're moving forward, gotta do the best with it... :|

    One suggestion. As a right handed person, I'd prefer having the tab close 'x' on the right side of the tab for easy reaching.

    As an extended thought, I wondered at the possibility to provide an option to choose left or right handed to switch the x and also maybe flip the entire top menu and place the 3dot, profile & new tab buttons to the other side of the screen....just a thought.

  • can we create folders for 'Saved Page'? i got a loads of articles to read offline, but somehow, quite difficult to find because i got too many saved pages. don't blame me, blame my internet service provider.

  • @deathbearry

    +1

    this might have to go into mini and desktop versions as well, to allow syncing.

    if you open a thread about this issue in the 'suggestions' subforum, i'll second your motion.

  • Could you please implement dark theme option to set as default? It may look like incognito mode. Current default theme is too bright! It burns eyes...

    Btw.
    When I open a new tab I would like the Speed Dial to be displayed. Using home button seems a bit counter-intuitive.

  • Beta 41.0.2246.11033 Android 5.1 Ellipsis 10 tablet in Tablet mode

    There may be a new security exploit that affects this beta. While doing a Google search, something added an icon to my Speed Dial entitled Breaking News. The icon ponted to the URL below.

  • Um,,I haven't got any updates since June. Funny enough, my friend's opera updated a while ago, and I'm still with the old version (37). The playstore shows the screenshots and info for the new version. However. When I scroll down to the bottom, it says version 37 updated on June 15.-) I'm on S7 Edge.

  • When I scroll down to the bottom, it says version 37 updated on June 15.-)

    You mean 37 beta?

  • No, it doesn't say beta. I don't have a beta installed at all. It is just that. The pics and info are for the new version, but the version I end up downloading and see at the bottom is from June 15. Uninstalling doesn't help it either.

  • wow, that is one ugly UI ...

  • Assist application? What's the point of this option? It just opens Google now app and that's all...

    I guess this is an Android's menu.
