New Opera Neon - concept browser

  • hi, I'm comparing Chromium performance to Neon. But, in Chromium i have set many non-default flags. Is there some way to import them? If not, consider this a request to add an "Import settings and flags" feature.

    Some observations:

    -Great Opera speed!

    -Hope footprint can stay small.

    -Hope you can bring back --single-process, i'm on limited RAM.

    -The "tabs", sorry "bubbles", are very space inefficient. I'd like to see more at once. I don't see a way to make 'em smaller.

    -Hard to tell which is the active bubble at first.

    -Can't find a way to get full width on the webpage. True, i can F11, but in other browsers you get full width without hiding the tabs.

    -Would be convenient to have a close 'X' on the browser window too, not just on the bubble. If the active bubble is scrolled out of view, then i have to scroll the bubbles to find the active one, before i can close it? Too much mousing. Totally not intuitive that if i want to close 'this', i have to go over there someplace else and click 'that'.

    -When i approach a bookmark close-X from lower left, it runs away from me. Quite annoying for something to run away from you when you're about to click it!

    -Inconvenient that i have to hide the active window to see the bookmarks. Neon seems inconvenient and over-mousey in more ways than one.

    -Wow, i can't believe i've been saying Opera wrong all these years! Tonight i'm going to see the Oprah. The Metropolitan Oprah.

    (this comment box has no vertical scroll bar. Also inconvenient).

    Thx

  • Is there some way to import them?

    Just enable them in Neon too.

  • Hi guys!

    I'm using the new Opera Neon, and he's really surprising me, is very fast, easy to use and really seems to be the browser reference in innovation and great look.

    I wonder if it is no way to synchronize with the Opera Account, to be able to use the information saved on it.

    Another thing I would like to know is if you're working on his translation to Portuguese of Brazil, because I can't wait to be able to indicate it to all my customers.

    I look forward to great news.

    A big hug and congratulations for doing something really new and amazing! :cheers:

  • I wonder if it is no way to synchronize with the Opera Account, to be able to use the information saved on it.

    Nope, it's not. Neon doesn't have Sync.

  • Hi, doubts and some needs

    1. For when does Opera Neon in Spanish?
    2. When will O.Neón have extensions?
    3. Where can you download the updates that are coming out?

    Thank you very much

  • Opera Neon is a concept browser - it will never have updates. A "concept car" is a car that they have at an industry show to indicate where they think things might go about 4 years from now, it is not something you can buy from your local dealer. Likewise Neon shows where they think the browser might go in the future. Some of its features may be introduced into the regular Opera browser at some point in the future, but Neon itself will never be updated.

  • Sgunhouse, are you part of the development team?

  • Sgunhouse, are you part of the development team?

    Nope. Neither am I.

  • Hi all.
    I try to open the program but then crashes

  • Hello there,even if its just a concept waiting to be integrated into the regular Opera,this could very likely to be the successor of it.Opera Neon might miss a thing or two, but it can be upgraded.Having it a couple of days,so far im satisfied with it,its fast,and runs smoothly.Design looks great ,loving this interface which is simple and easy to use.
    I have an idea/suggestion ,don't know if it was mentioned before,but the middle section with the bubbles would be nice to have the possibility to rearrange the sequence . Or themes that changes the pattern in the middle section.

  • Cant open Opera Neon anymore, it open and a second later crashed and disapear
    Must give up?

    This happened to me too, I just reinstalled and now he work normally.

  • Well... I have two different sizes monitors and Opera Neon takes background from two of them... it doesn't look good. Am I able to repair it? For example to choose just a wallpaper from one of the monitors
    It look like this on my computer https://scr.hu/rgWd26

  • Really love the Opera Neon however there are several draws and should be considered implementing:

    -Opera Extension
    -Bookmarks
    -Turbo?
    -Similar settings from the other Opera Browser

    I really like the concept of this Opera neon but sadly it does not provide flexible features and settings from the Opera browser then again neon is just a concept.

  • Please help! I can't uninstall Opera Neon on my Win 10 laptop. When I start uninstall, the uninstall window seemingly pops up except that it only appears on the taskbar and when I click on it the window does not show.

  • Hey Guys!

  • Can anyone help I was happily useing Neon as a browser and then 3 weeks ago it started to conitnue to crash when opened, I am using it on a Mac, have uninstalled and reinstalled it several times still with the same results it will not open just automatically crash each time.

  • Welcome to Opera's forums @Jm2808!

    Try cleaning cache and cookies in Settings.

  • Hi @zalex108 thanks for the suggestions I can not even get near the cookies or the settings, literally click the icon to launch and it crashes, an error message appears for just under a second so you cant see what it says then I get the report the issue mac dialouge box.

    Its very odd I didnt know whether it was Flash or something else causing the issues but it will not launch at all to let me get near any settings.
