New Opera Neon - concept browser

  • So far seems like a promising browser, its fast, stable, and pretty, i definitely like it.

    However i would like to provide some feedback:

    • Opened Tabs NEED a close button right side of the 'Minimize' button.

    • And option to add and/or personalize all tabs on the Home (time-line) page.

    • Bookmarks, favorites or whatever u want to call 'em.

    • An integrated AdBlock, and PopUp Blocker, or at least the possibility to add them as plug-ins. THIS IS A MUST HAVE, not negotiable, if Neon doesn't have this feature i wont be an user, sorry but browsing Internet without Malware Blockers is like going to the Flea Market all naked.

  • @bluemystic It's a final release and abandoned software. No updates was made just to see if people would like how it looks and how it's used.

  • @leocg
    The problem is that if people read old reviews of Opera Neon, such as this one or just google "new web browser" or similar to see what is available, then they find the Neon download page. On the download page there is no mention of the fact that the browser isn't updated, and one could easily get the impression that this is something which is coming in the future. Judging from the small number of posts in this forum I suppose this is not a huge problem, but I'd say it's not surprising that people are still asking questions.

  • Very Good Concept. This Concept Something New And Better.

  • @mrsmagnuson yeah thats what happened to me, i was Googling "new browser" and since i saw posts in this forum from barely a couple months i tough it was a live project.

  • This is why they should just remove the download, people don't read. No one should use Neon anymore since it's extremely out of date and vulnerable. It's almost negligent to let people still download it.

  • @karcyon In www.opera.com there is no mention of Neon. If people go to the blog post through a search and just download it without read the text, it's their problem not Opera's.

  • @leocg Although the blog post is very clear about the concept, the Download page is not at all clear on this. The downolad page is obviously not a blog post, it looks very official and it is very easy to find just by a simple search that does not lead you to the blog post at all. If Opera still maintains the download page the text could be clarified to more resemble the blog post, where indeed the text is very clear.

  • @mrsmagnuson Why someone would download something without knowing anything about it?

  • Is Opera Neon Abandoned?

    I tested it for the first time today and realized that it doesn't receive updates. As a browser made in Chromium open source, I tried some websites and noticed that Opera Neon acts like an old version of Google Chrome, even Youtube runs in an old version. It may have occurred from me downloaded via a wrong link on the Opera website, but I highly doubt it. I was wondering about your experience with Neon. I really wanted to use the browser, but so outdated is unfeasible.

  • @medeirosvg You didn't read the most recent posts, did you? Neon was only ever a concept browser made to show what might be possible in the future (like a concept car at one of the big auto shows). It has never received even a single update.

  • Hey this opera is using old chrome, how to update it?

  • @ashrovy Neon was a one time release to show a concept, there aren't any updates.

  • Surprisingly, the information in the browser itself indicates the year 2019. Of course, the browser is not being developed, but why should the version from 2017 be presented as the 2019 browser?

  • @Onward Where are you seeing such info?
