New Opera Neon - concept browser

  • And why is that?

    The answer is on the first post.

  • I really like the concept, so I'd like to share some impressions:

    1. I love that the menu and the tabs are vertical. Since a lot of sites just having empty space on the vertical edges anyway this makes a lot of sense to me.
    2. The new tab button really need to be near the tab list (or at least duplicated there).
    3. The two pane view is great, but I would like a quick way to choose in which pane a tab opens when I click it. I think an intuitive way would be for left click to open it in the left pane and right click in the right.
    4. The media player is fantastic. Love the always on top floating video option.
    5. I like how the design uses my desktop background as the background. 🙂

    So good job on the concept. I hope it is developed further, and/or that opera moves in this direction. If this browser had extensions I would switch to it in an heartbeat.

  • If Opera don't release it, someone will take this concept and release it for good.... and then..... 😞

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

    I concur. Browsing the net used to be a chore, now it is an experience!

  • Is Opera Neon open source? Can it be forked?

  • Cant open Opera Neon anymore, it open and a second later crashed and disapear 😞
    Must give up?

  • Try to install on Windows, but get error while the installtion program is still downloading. Works beautiful on Mac!!
    Please fix or suppluy an off-line download.

  • Is Opera Neon open source? Can it be forked?

    Nope. Except, of course, the Chromium part of it.

  • Just decided to give it a try yesterday, and already loving it! Many of the ideas it demonstrates are very comfy and the "feel" is just very pleasant; if there's no plan to maintain it, and as lajmccullough suggested, will it be open sourced?

    I've only used it for one day and yet, I'm already fearing I could have to switch back to something else 😃

    Great job!

  • If Opera made this browser just to trash it like that, why bother create this page? http://www.opera.com/computer/neon

    Why they don't kill it then?

    Something is not right..

  • Some great features there.

    I'm interested to know; are you going to stop at these ideas or are you going to steal absolutely all of Maxthon's features?

  • Why I cannot open it any more???? On Windows 10 it just started crashing yesterday. I have tried to reinstall it, but it's the same.

    I am really disappointed.

    Still working here.

    Which build are you using?
    I can use it only with workarounds now...

  • Which build are you using?

    You mean Windows 10 build? If so then it's 1607 build 14393.726.

    I can use it only with workarounds now...

    Which workarounds?

  • Same for me, on WIN 10, It always crashing, as soon as I launch it. This since this morning. 😞

  • I have the same problem, on OS Sierra. It's quite depressing, it is such an amazing new browser.

  • You mean Windows 10 build? If so then it's 1607 build 14393.726.

    No, I meant the Neon version/build...

    Which workarounds?

    The date trick... 🙂 If you set the date to january 10 for instance, it will work fine without close or crashing...

  • No, I meant the Neon version/build...

    There is only one build: 1.0.2459.0

  • No, I meant the Neon version/build...

    There is only one build: 1.0.2459.0

    Nope, there was a previous build before that, I think it was only available on the Opera's FTP server....
