  • Nice release, but won't it be better if Workspaces work as Containers in Firefox do? So that each Workspace has it's own cookies? This way I can use it as "Profile" alternative for various tasks. In current implementation I don't really get WHEN I do need them? They are just hidden opened tabs with no normal interface (you have to find how and what, before you can use them) to interact with them.

    Another suggestion "new tabswitcher": there is no visual indicator that I have more tabs in case of many opened tabs. Probably it's some UX issue in current version.

  • My workspaces doesn't work - I've tried to follow your information above but when I right click on a tab it doesn't offer me the option to save it to a workspace, despite me setting these up and activating them in settings - help!

  • @jozefa46: Replying to my own post, Now I get it! I renamed the original space where All of my saved tabs are instead of creating new Workspaces and Now that I have I can see how to save tabs to whichever Workspace I want, hmmmmmmmmmm. I have noticed that you have very few instructional videos about how to learn how to do this, I am a VO so if you want to make one I will voice it for you (pro bono) so that others who are less techy like me, can learn how to set this up properly. I can sort of see value in it but as I am a Huge Opera fan, I will find a way to make it work. If you decide you Do want to create an instructional film with a clear British VO voice, then contact me studio@businessvocals.com

  • @jozefa46 Last post here because I'm wasting too much time, now that I sorted Workspaces I've lost all of my speed dial settings and the layout is not how I want it so. I am disabling 'Workspaces' wish I'd never started with this, just lost 1 hour of a real working time messing about with this, yuk!

  • @jozefa46 Please avoid shouting.

  • @leocg Excuse me? Where am I shouting?

  • @jozefa46 About 5 words in caps in your previous post. So you shouted at least 5 times.

    And now you shouted again.

  • @leocg please look again and you'll see caps used for names and not shouting, last post was shouting to show you difference.

  • @leocg decided that I won't continue here, not my kind of fair discussion space when you get attacked by moderator for sharing and wrongly accused, let me know when you/Opera (used a caps there cos it's a name) fix workspaces in the meantime I've got to put back all the speed dials that upgrading Opera removed, thanks a lot!

  • @jozefa46 Your post was edited to remove the shouting. That's why you don't see your shouting words there.

  • @pursanovd said in R2020 is here and it lets you tidy your browsing:

    That might be pretty difficult to do in Chromium-based browsers. Chromium doesn't support containers and I'm not sure if hacking something with workspaces to make use of Chromium's multi-profile support would be possible. Also not sure if something like the SessionBox extension could be done with workspaces. Might be possible, but seems unlikely without some kind of built-in support from Chromium.

  • it show slideshow on youtube
    so downgraded to 64 again

  • on fast scroll up it show "artifacts" in page bottom

  • @rx-3200 What do you mean?

  • Now when I cycle tabs (not using the new visual way) it stops cycling at the furthest left and right tabs, you can't "loop" around as usual. Feels really bad

  • The remote window with the video does not work. Just a black rectangle. The sound is on, but the video is not showing. The window can not expand, move, close. In private mode, the same.

  • Are there any work to fix a frequent Opera crash? As a reminder, based on my posts and other peoples, it appears that crash occurs on both Windows 7, Windows 10 and Linux (or other Ubuntu).

  • @colturdminer Known issue. Opera's working on it.

  • @burnout426 for now my problem with Opera is that I can't work with multiple "fresh" profiles natively (sure I can create desktop shortcut with parameters). Why do I need to? For example: open several configuration of AWS: they reset your previous session if they see that there are any cookies already set; different profiles/containers are saviors in this case. Really I just can't get what do they want with the "Workspaces" and how is this really different from the "tab groups" from old Opera (that "tab group" functionality was probably even better visually and from UX point of view). May be I'm wrong and I just didn't get something here 😞

  • @pursanovd for me workspace is better from tabs groups. But last stable Opera is... unstable in old updated installations... For me in new portable installation with few bookmarks/add-ons Opera works good. But in my old updated installation crash very often. And this one before last update work very good.
