New Opera Neon - concept browser

I like this concept! It works very nice and quick.
The only thing at this moment is that there is no adblock at this time.
I hope to see that activated in a next beta!
Neon is a concept browser, it's something to show new concepts, new ideas on UI and design mainly and see hoe people react to them so those ideas may be implemented in Opera in the future.
It's unlikely that Neon will get any of the Opera's features.

Man I really like this browser. I wish they'd add extension support.

This concept is good as standalone app. Dont even think about to ruin desktop Opera by this wired ideas. Desktop Opera is very good browser (it'still missing some stuff though) so dont try to ruin Opera's features like you did with old->new Opera.
Everyone please better dont say anything or say you dont like it at all because Opera's developers are starting to have something broken in their mind again like they had with presto core. So if you dont want to have your favorite browser broken for years again better say: concept is all bad.
So as standalone app yes but as crosbreading with standard desktop Opera... HELL NO!

I have installed and really like this at first time, but i don't like the top bar, why it is light mode, while in the video is the dark mode?

Great concept, great ideas. I miss some details as mouse gestures, extensions,....but I really encourage you to continue with this project, It is the best idea for tablets.

Just checked the concept - and I FREAKIN' LOVE IT! It's really unique, and I like how it solves some of the usual browser issues - like the 'player' you added, or having two tabs on the same screen without having them as separate windows (chatting on Messenger and browsing the web side by side, for example), screenshots etc. It's basically a lot of separate apps I use in one - Franz for chatting, SnagIt for screenshots, Opera Beta of course for browsing... It looks visually very pleasing as well!
Implementing those features into Opera is cool, however I don't see why Neon couldn't become a full-on browser on its own. If so, here are a few things that could make it a 'proper' browser:
- The 'tab' buttons could be smaller, the whole tab bar could be slimmer too - just like the bar on the left.
- Opera's full synchronization service.
- Extensions, the most crucial thing. I won't log in or surf much of the web without Disconnect, AdGuard etc.
In the end, this is very much enjoyed. I am glad I stuck with Opera for so many years. You seem to be the leaders in innovation. Can't wait to see these features implemented into Opera, however long that process will be.

Tried downloading the OperaNeon.dmg file and tried to open it on my Early 2014 MacBook Air running Sierra and the dmg, itself, won't open. Tried downloading three times from both the Opera and Opera Developer browsers. Other dmg files open/mount just fine. Any idea what's going on here? Am dying to try out Neon! Thanks!

I think it's too small, sometimes it's hard to see what's on the image.
Opera's full synchronization service.

It's a concept browser, nothing will be added to it.

Hi I'm checking out Neon and I find it really interesting!
I would like to give you some feedback after using it on my 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablet with a touch screen interface:
- Can't drag elements with a touch screen.
- Can't get to the tab close button, since I can't hover.
- It would be nice to have the possibility to make the side menus horizontal when rotating the screen, since vertical side menus take a lot of the screen space from the main browser window in portrait mode.
Otherwise the browser seems really solid for a beta/concept, and the only things I'm really missing are favourites (the start page with bubbles is cool but simply not enough - maybe a way to create groups of bubbles ?) and of course ad blocked and add-ons.
Keep up the good work!

I have a question is it only a concept browser for desktop or it will roll for mobile devices (android or ios etc) too?

Hello, I'm really enjoying Opera Neon, is a very useful and innovate Browser. I saw on some pages, you just did this for fun, just an idea without future. However I really want to use Neon forever, as my main browser. If you don't have any problem, I want to translate the browser to Spanish. My issue right now is unzip the pak files to modify the options, if you give me the oportunity to collaborate I really appreciate it.

Like the concept. Unfortunately I can't use for daily browsing as it keep hanging. Hope to see a new build soon.
