Opera developer 65

  • Hi @loup001 I have tried the Opera developer package from that repo, and still the shortcuts from the sidebar are opening fine in this version. It looks like it's something else, which is causing the issue on your side.

  • New update for Linux and Windows - Opera developer 65.0.3430.0 ;-)
    The change log, and the announcement.
     
    Redesigned suggestions

    This past spring we released Opera Reborn 3, introducing a redesigned interface with features like light and dark themes, so that your browser can be adjusted to your mood, and help you focus on your browsing. Today we are continuing the R3 design with a new drop-down list for search suggestions in the address bar.

    The new drop-down list is displayed over the page with an overlay mask for visual clarity. A suggested list of visited websites from your History, Bookmarks or Speed Dial, includes different icons, bolded titles and parts of links, so you can easily recognize what you are looking for.
     

     
    Bookmarks in the sidebar panel

    We are also working on a brand-new look and layout for bookmarks in the sidebar panel, which we believe will be more accessible when browsing. You’ll be able to quickly and easily get back to saved websites, or if you’re not a bookmarks fan those you frequently visit.

    When you click on the heart icon in the sidebar, which opens the panel, you’ll see a layout, that reflects exactly what’s in the standard Bookmarks Manager view. In this sidebar panel view, you can easily edit or delete bookmarks, or folders.
     

     
    DNS over HTTPS (DoH)

    When someone types a website address, like www.opera.com, the browser has to translate it to a URL code on the Internet, such as 35.158.61.69. This is done through DNS, one of the oldest surviving parts of the Internet. By today’s standards DNS is too trusting, so various ideas are being tested, to see what can be done to make it more robust.

    The two main ideas are DNS over HTTPS (DoH), and DNS over TLS (DoT). Both have pros and cons, so it’s still uncertain which the Internet will eventually use, but we’ve decided to give DoH a go.

    In this developer release, there is a flag in opera:flags (opera://flags/#opera-doh) that enables DNS over HTTPS (DoH) through Cloudflare’s 1.1.1.1 servers. It is still experimental, but please turn it on, and let us know about your experience. Please note, that if requests can’t be handled by Cloudflare, we will still fallback to your local DNS server. This is so you can still use Opera on internal networks, or behind firewalls.

    The option is available when the #opera-doh flag is enabled.

    Please also note, that there is no macOS builds for this version.
     
    Some of fixes and improvements:
    - DNA-79137 Crash at opera::installer::OptionsScreen::OnLanguageChanged.
    - DNA-80400 Top 1px line on ‘New tab’ button is inactive.
    - DNA-80530 Turn-off button in Adblocker pop-up doesn’t work.

  • Win 8 users,
    Please check if you have any differences while opening new tab with hardware acceleration off/on in Settings (don't forget to relaunch after changing the toggle).
    Here new tab opening is very slow (~2 seconds) and browser becomes unresponsive during this time. I don't see this problem after turning the hw acceleration off. Also in 63 it looks fine (with both hw acceleration on and off)

  • @l33t4opera

    Hi, thank's for your effort in trying to solve my "problem" with side bar. ( I replied to your last message the following day, but it's not there ????.)

    Concerning DoH, as far as i am concerned it is disabled.

    I have dnssec on my firewall, and do not trust the cloud.

    Btw, i just red that opendsd will disable that feature.

  • Hi @loup001, what you mean by "it's not there", that the previous topic is locked, or something else?
    If so, we decided to continue to speak about your case here (me and Moderator).

    Yes, DoH is experimental feature, and it's disabled by default. Most probably the flag will stay in place, even if it will be enabled by default in the future, so you should be able to disable it as you wish.

  • In Opera dev 65.0.3443.0 the flag opera://flags/#PasswordImport has been removed. For now, we can use the switch --enable-features=PasswordImport

    "In this update we are introducing technical, and usability improvements to the start page experience. The new start page is faster than ever. It loads instantly, when you open a new tab, even if you already have a lot of tabs open in that session. Interaction on the start page is also improved - scrolling is smooth, no matter how many speed dials and news items you have.

    The new start page optimizes your browser’s memory usage, as it is now one instance, no matter how many start-page's tabs you open. This feature is still under development, and if you notice it causing any problems, it can be disabled in opera:flags#shared-start-page.

    Please take a look at the comparison between how the start page loaded before, and how it loads now with the new mechanism.

    Opera system requirements update: please note, that we’ve dropped support for OS X Yosemite. "

  • So 'Quick Access' option was removed? I can't find it anywhere (including flags). After many requests to make it look with one solid border when Quick Access pane is expanded it was just removed. Really genius lifehack.

  • Hi @andrew84, yep, it looks like it's removed from the flags and settings. I'm not one of Opera's employees, so you need to ask one of them, why it is removed for now. You can still use it in the previous version 65.0.3459.0.

  • @l33t4opera They don't answer.

  • Hi @andrew84, I may try to get to know, if you want.

  • @l33t4opera I don't mind (if you have time fo this).
