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.

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.

I love the new look and feel of Neon and would switch to it without a doubt if Opera decides to turn it into a main browser idea.
I have just one question: I've been testing Neon out, but it seems to be using a default background rather than my own. Is there a setting that I'm missing? I have a Win 10 Pro x64 running on an HP Pro G0 450

This concept is something new and different, I like it. Would be nice to have advanced customization options like option to auto hide right bar, dark mode/ light mode, etc. Adblock is a very necessary feature. Hope in the feature to see It on mobile devices in a final version.

I have installed Opera Neon on my mac, really nice concept and great work !!
I'm using Opera Coast on my IOS and it's true that all the desktop web browsers look old even if I'm currently using Opera
I really like the concept of bubbles and the bubble tabs also, and the possibility to split the screen is a nice to have !
Please add the synchro for multiple desktops, VPN and ADBlock and I will switch immediately to Opera Neon right now !!!
Again, really nice job

There won't be one.
I think it's a nice browser and they should keep up with it. I discovered it today and except the lack of some features it makes a browser that really suits my workflow.
