New Opera stable 47

  • The Opera 47.0.2631.39 has been promoted to the stable channel ;-)

    The change log,
    and the announcement: "Exportable bookmarks, smoother videos and design improvements in Opera 47".

    "Opera 47 enters into the stable build today, after undergoing a short development cycle (shorter than our usual 6-week period). Albeit light on major features, this version of Opera comes with a handful of useful improvements. Two of these improvements help assist in convenience: the ability to export all bookmarks, and increased capacity for the recently closed tabs. Your personal news-feed received two additional refresh intervals, and the user interface gained refined visuals for better readability.

    Exportable bookmarks

    This stable build provides a choice of exporting all of your bookmarks. Everything from your Speed Dial, bookmarks bar, and other folders are neatly listed in a single HTML file. Additionally, the bookmarks pop-up – seen, when adding a new bookmark, or Speed Dial entry – received some fixes for bugs experienced earlier.

    Smoother background loading of news

    Today’s news cycle comes fast and frequent, and the bombardment of information can be overwhelming not only for yourself, but also for your browser. To reduce interruptions, and save some data usage from the browser, your personal news can now be refreshed at two, new intervals of three, or six hours.

    Longer list of closed tabs

    Many of our users had requested an expansion of the capacity for the recently closed tabs in the Tab menu. Opera now retains up to 32 closed tabs, up from the original 10 for you, to recall at the moment’s notice. This becomes a handy shortcut to your history log. (Tip: You can reopen the most recently closed tab by right-clicking any tab, and selecting Reopen Last Closed Tab).

    Smoother video playback

    Additionally, we have cleaned up some issues, related to videos across different systems. Windows 7 Aero's users, should no longer see flickering background images, when switching between YouTube's videos. For macOS adherents, broken auto-played YouTube's videos, when going to full screen were fixed. Everyone should see a smoother video pop-up player in Opera 47.

    Quality improvements to the design

    We sharpened up the colors, and appearances of the interface. To better complement our dark theme, dark favicons (the icons associated with a website), received a touch of lighter color, to make them more visible in the bookmarks bar. If you decide to stick with the light theme of Opera, we have cleaned up color contrasting for better readability.

    Security and engine update

    Opera features a “risky file protection”, in order to prevent the most scary file types from being downloaded. Opera 47 has been beefed up with .scf files, added to the risky file extensions list (for Windows)."

    The Chromium has been updated to version 60.0.3112.78.

  • Hello! And how to disable this key in experimental functions. Thank you

  • Hello! And how to disable this key in experimental functions. Thank you

    I don't think you can. Maybe removing your login data for that site in passwords manager?

  • In Opera 46 it was possible to do so, but in 47 how?

  • In Opera 46 it was possible to do so, but in 47 how?

    As I said, it's not possible. The feature reached a stable stage, the experiment ended and they removed the flag related to it.

  • Sad, but still thanks for the answer.

  • New update - Opera stable 47.0.2631.55 ;-)

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Hi all, we start off this week with a quick stable update. Unfortunately, with the initial release we let two nasty bugs slip by, so here are fixes for them:

    – UAC popup displayed every time Opera is launched.

    – Process overloading in Google/Yandex maps, with disabled hardware acceleration."

  • New update - Opera stable 47.0.2631.71 ;-)

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "This time, we have a stable update to address few nasty bugs, which some users are experiencing:

    – Font rendering issues with AMD cards on Windows 10.

    – Browser freezes on disabling the switch in VPN dialog, while loading the page.

    – Issues with playing videos on Netflix, and Vimeo.com.
