Opera beta UI reverted back and awful changes

  • I really liked themed UI and background on speed deal but they decided to revert UI back to original and make awful changes for no reason. Video in full screen forced to rotate to landscape and the borders in video is white instead black on some websites. It's too bright and annoying for my eye. I never seen a dev decided to make white border instead black.
    Wouldn't it be annoying when you sit on cinema and watch movie with white borders?

  • UI change is intentional and it would be better with the time. Regarding Full screen, its same in Chrome i guess.

  • Haven't tried the beta myself but looking at its screenshots on the play store I feel relieved they inverted it to what it is now, as those metallic greys remind me only of phones from the 90's...

  • I get the point why it would force to rotate video player to landscape but i used to stay in portrait. I can confirm it happens on Chrome but not yet on Opera stable version. I don't hope the annoying white border will come to stable version

  • Is there any way to install Opera beta 42 over the new beta?? Or install the Opera 42 over the new stable O43?? I like the 42 UI and background also, and the speed dial zoomed out so I could get more icons on it. The new O43 stable has bigger icons, anf far as I know there is no way to zoom out on the Speed Dial page

  • Here you can download older versions https://www.apk4fun.com/history/3318/

    APK is original and untouched.

    I don't care about the UI now but i downgraded to older version to get rid of white borders
