New Opera Neon - concept browser

  • 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?

  • opera neon crashes on osx 10116

  • Hello. You do not know when Opera Neon will be updated (if I wrote not there, then sorry. Didn't know exactly where to write)? Gmail says the browser is already outdated.

  • @eliteelectro As clearly said in the release, Neon will not be updated. It's not even in development.

  • @l33t4opera

    Why do you leave such outdated and vulnerable software still available for download, if there are not even security updates available for it, I find this a lack of respect for users, if they no longer want to continue the project, for lack of competence, discontinue downloading too, as continuing to allow downloading something that is vulnerable and potentially harmful to users is also your responsibility.

  • @ssi-marcelo Seriously? Neon is not even mentioned in Opera's main site, so those who may be downloading and installing it are most probably doing it after have researched about it, know and understand that it was a concert browser that wouldn't be updated and developed and decided to install Neon on their own risks.

  • Hi @ssi-marcelo, with all due respect it's clearly announced, that this is "Opera Neon, our new concept browser" - in other words concept of a browser.

    For me as one of the users, it seems like it was experimental field on which Opera wanted to present some new features, which may be further developed and implemented in main stream (stable/beta/developer), and/or in GX or other products.

    I also would welcome some security, and compatibility updates to this experiment, as for example it was the case of old Opera (based on Presto engine). However, to be honest I would not expect it too much, because it was only a concept, not a real browser version with several main versions released for several years, as it was in case of the old Opera.

  • @regnas and then it will be even better. Opera has shown to be incapable in following through or finalizing their features or products.
