  • The Opera 44.0.2510.857 has been promoted to the stable channel 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Today, Opera becomes the first major browser after Apple’s Safari to introduce support for the Touch Bar in the final version.

    How you can browse with Touch Bar

    Opera’s implementation of Touch Bar enables contextual actions such as going back, focusing the address field, and navigating through Speed Dials. The most interesting feature - for majority of you - will probably be navigating through multiple tabs, as you slide your finger across the website icons. Icons have different colors and backgrounds, giving you a nice-looking and distinguishable overview of your tabs.

    When we saw the Touch Bar for the first time, we immediately recognized how it could be useful for the browser, allowing people to switch tabs without lifting their eyes from the keyboard to the tab bar on top of the screen. We were surprised to find Safari’s implementation to show tiny thumbnails of web pages in the relatively small touch bar area.

    Under the hood

    Opera 44 features our own tuned-up version of Chromium 57. This adds support for CSS Grid Layout, and WebAssembly, which we believe has the potential to bring browser games to the next level. Try one out here.

    Also from Chromium, the new background tab throttling has been added, providing additional energy consumption reductions to the battery saver feature, introduced to Opera in May 2016.

    Opera 44 also adds support for the Credential Management API. This gives users a simpler sign-in process across devices, and provides websites with more control over the usage of credentials. The website can use password-based sign-ins via this API. Once logged in, users will be automatically signed back into a site, even if their session has expired.

    Thank you for all the feedback and support! We hope you will enjoy browsing with this new version of Opera!"

  • Still no auto-update. I refuse to download the update and install it manually. About Opera tells me there is a new version - why not install it?

  • Maybe your Opera profile it's dirty?

  • Still no auto-update

    As they always say when a new version is launched in the stable channel, it may take a couple of days, maybe a little more, for auto-update to reach all users.

    I refuse to download the update

    Usually you can just run the online installer. 🙂

  • There is a black screen problem at Opera 44.0 . The black screen can come in when the connection is automatically opened to the new tab.

  • Test with a Clean Profile, steps for Mac.

    (There are info in many post, just read the whole discussion before proceed)

  • New update - Opera stable 44.0.2510.1159 😉

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Hi, today, we’re updating the stable stream. We fixed the problem with crashes on startup, which some users got with the previous build. Also, Chromium was updated to version 57.0.2987.133".
