Search bar & (dark) skin suggestions

  • Hello!

    Please think again the new design in the search bar, because it's very hard to use. Here is the opera 58 vs 65 screenshot:

    We have been using this order since 60+ versions: Type of result / url / title. Now the order has been reversed.. This is very confusing in everyday use. Other problem: Until this version, we using a small, compact list. Now the paddings are big, the highlight is too much, too "tawdry".

    Btw same problem (lack of simplicity/ease of use) in the google search list design. The old layout is much clearer, more informative:

    Finally, the most frustrating change, the colors of dark skin. Find the active tab below:

    If you look at the monitor from a distance or not exactly in front of you, it's hard to spot in the new design. The contrast beetwen the active and the inactive tabs is too small.

    Please also consider usability when designing the appearance and sorry for my english.

    Thank you!

  • The whole interface needs to be revised, except for the context menus - those are fine.
