New Opera Neon - concept browser

  • how do you use the split screen option?

    Drag a 'bubble' from the tab bar to the 'view area' while a page is already opened there.

  • this is my new favorite browser. 10/10. useful and minimalist.

  • 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.

    Thank you

  • i like neon but i think that it needs more for example extensions and bookmarks

  • 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:

    1. The 'tab' buttons could be smaller, the whole tab bar could be slimmer too - just like the bar on the left.
    2. Opera's full synchronization service.
    3. Extensions, the most crucial thing. I won't log in or surf much of the web without Disconnect, AdGuard etc.
    4. Bookmarks.

    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!

    It's a concept browser. Its purpose is to show a concept, an idea.

  • The 'tab' buttons could be smaller, the whole tab bar could be slimmer too - just like the bar on the left.

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

    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.
    Bookmarks.

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

  • Any idea what's going on here?

    What version of Mac OS? Opera requires 10.9 at least.

  • 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:

    1. Can't drag elements with a touch screen.
    2. Can't get to the tab close button, since I can't hover.
    3. 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! 🙂

  • linux version plz.

    or does the windows run in the wine environment?

  • Spinish pls!!! Translate Version pls

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

    It seems to be focused on desktops for now.

  • 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.

  • I like the minimalist approach but at the same time I'm a little bit annoyed with wasted space around the page display area. It would be so nice to have the ability to merge the windows titlebar with omnibox, borderless browser would look so gorgeous.
