  • @rudrick Although they seem very interesting, I don't see them coming in a near future.

  • Messenger apps already use web panels...

  • New update - Opera developer 53.0.2893.0 ;-)

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Here are some things worth mentioning:
    - "Easy Setup" layout has been polished.
    - The crash, when switching between tabs is fixed.
    - Spinner, and mute icons have been properly scaled for DPI > 225%."

  • Since Opera 53.0.2885.0 developer (also Opera 53.0.2893.0) i get a system message when opening a URL if it comes from an external program (IRC link, help link from LibreOffice, etc.).


    Der vorgegebene Internetnavigator konnte nicht gestartet werden.


    Failed to execute default Web Browser.
    Input/output error

    Site opens, but with the stupid system dialog.

    No dialog with Opera developer 53.0.2880.0, Opera stable, Firefox, Vivaldi
    The dialog only opens if Opera Dev ⋝ 53.0.2885.0 is the default browser.
    command line:
    exo-open URL with dialog (exo-open starts the default browser)
    opera-developer URL without dialog

    OS: Siduction 64bit
    DE: Xfce 4.12

    Can anybody confirm that, or what is the mistake?

    @rudrick Although they seem very interesting, I don't see them coming in a near future.

    Sad news.

  • @mxxl What news? It was just an opinion.

  • New update - Opera developer 53.0.2900.0 ;-)

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Since spring is just around the corner, we’re doing some spring cleaning in Opera developer 53. You’ll find improvements to tabs’ display, especially with several of them opened, and some new colors for the address bar in this build.

    Optimized display of tabs

    Recently, for Mac users, it’s been difficult to find and manage a particular tab when many of them are open. We figured out a way to optimize this and make your plentiful tabs’ favicons more visible. Let’s see how it changed:

    To make it even more visible, clicking on a tab will expand it to make it easier to manage.

    There is also a fresh, sharpened coloring done to the address bar.

    Other highlights:
    - Windows 10 bug with an empty pop-up, when text is selected by a touch screen is fixed.
    - Opera will install on Ubuntu 18.04, Bionic.
    - Touch bar is fixed (macOS).
    - Missing translations added."

    Known issues:

    - Tabs previews can be broken.
    - Capturing full page by Snapshot doesn’t work.
    - Issues with saving as PDF..

    The Chromium has been updated to version 66.0.3355.4.

    ☕   🖖   🍺

  • @l33t4opera You need to sign this version (53) so that password manager extension like 1Password will correctly identify the browser as Opera and work again. The 1Password extension works fine in the beta version and did work in all previous dev versions.

  • @markbyrn We don't release unsigned builds. Problem with 1Password is that they base their verification on old certificate which will soon expire. Since 53.0.2893.0 we use new certificate so it's up to 1Password to update their verification.
    I've send them information about this, but we have no direct contact so no idea how long it's going to take.

  • @deluxive thanks for analysis of 1Password. I've sent them request to update their signatures database with our new certificate. As for the crash build 53.0.2900.0 release this week includes fix for crash when opening new tabs on Mac. Hopefully it should also be fine for you.

  • Interesting.

  • New update - Opera developer 53.0.2903.0 ;-)

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "Before the weekend comes, we’ve prepared for you a developer update containing some design improvements. Also, we corrected the German translation for the arrow tool in snapshot.

    Known issues:
    - Speed Dial extensions have empty tiles.
    - Opera doesn’t run on macOS 10.10."

    The Chromium is updated to version 66.0.3359.27.

    ☕   🖖   🍺

  • New update - Opera developer 53.0.2906.0 ;-)

    The change log, and the announcement.

    "We’ve fixed animations on the Speed Dial page, so drag’n’drop operation of tiles should be smooth again."

    Some of the other changes:
    - DNA-66695 Move common/html_reader to desktop/common/utility.
    - DNA-68591 Move OperaBrowserMainPartsWin out of desktop/common.
    - DNA-68620 Create prefs for category, and language selection."

    ☕   🖖   🍺

  • DNAWIZ-26931 still not fixed → 😞

    1password issue is still not resolved. 1password support told me they have not been officially contacted by opera developers ( Can the developers contact 1password at to have this resolved? Thanks!

  • @loup001 When dumping opera://gpu info, only 'Graphics Feature Status' and 'Log Messages' are necessary at first.

    As you can see, hardware acceleration is disabled or not working in your system. Check if it's enabled in settings.

  • @leocg

    Thank's leo for comment.

    Regardless if activated or not, wallpaper remain frozen.

    I have checked in the change log after 2880 for related info to no luck

    Maybe because i'm on arch ( using package build from aur ).
    The original package is deb which seem to install stuff in /opt, where arch ( aur ) install in /usr/lib
