Opera 69 comes with built-in Twitter

  • A small bug. If I add a bookmark in a different way than by clicking on the heart (e.g. by adding directly to the bookmarks bar) then the address bar still has an "empty" heart. Red appears only after refreshing the page.

  • Just now updated, can not start opera it freezes after 5 seconds as I open it.

  • I understand everything, but I work as a programmer, and when the opera has downloaded or a new update has been released, I cease to use CSS styles and work normally what I do in HTML until you restart the browser. It is not immediately clear that updates have come and I am starting to think that I am doing something wrong and looking for a reason until I remember that this opera begins to knock when I am ready to update.

  • @treego personally I don't mind them adding features. If they don't interest me I just don't use them. I never notice this so-called bloat. If there is some adverse effect on performance it must be infinitesimal. What concerns me more are usability regressions that happen from time to time. It's not just Opera. Pretty much all software vendors are the same. My current annoyance is the new horizontal tab cycler. The vertical one is far superior and is one of the major reasons why I moved to Opera from my previous default! Up until 68 I cold still re-enable it in experiments. But I gather that's not possible in 69? I've not upgraded yet.

  • Hey guys in the opera 68 update thread, there was a discussion about a yellow highlight (here: https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2020/06/opera-68-0-3618-165-stable-update/).

    I know what you're talking about. This has nothing to do with opera, the reason this appears is because some wikipedia results from google are not linked in such a way as to highlight a portion of the wiki page, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientia_potentia_est#:~:text=The phrase "scientia potentia est,Bacon's English or Latin writings.

    If you edit the URL to remove the part that is doing the highlight, the article appears as normal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientia_potentia_est

  • you added yet another not configurable/removable button 😞

    I really would like to be able to hide buttons I almost never use(Extensions, Easy Setup) and I'm dying to be able to use workspaces via a configurable/removable button on this area (I don't use the sidebar)

  • This post is deleted!
  • Well, yes, but you will probably never return the convenient function that you removed - a drop-down menu from the address bar, with the buttons 'Copy', 'Paste', 'Save as PDF', 'Snapshot', 'Add to the Express panel'. It was very convenient, but then in some version this convenient function disappeared.

    About the weather widget. I do not like Accu Weather. Is it possible to add the choice of a weather site to my discretion, for example Gismeteo.ru? Thank you, I will be very grateful.

  • @vomax007 they returned something similar (#enhanced address bar flag ), but with the 'top' sites and without the quick action buttons it is pretty useless. I suggested many time already adding the buttons like in previous version.

    there's extension in Opera addons https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/gismeteo/
    Despite being 2 years old it's a way better than the Weather widget.

  • Opera just keeps getting beter and better.

  • Hello. New user to Opera and there is much that I like, and some aspects not so much:

    • Dislike that when I copy a URL in the address bar it copies the site's page name and the URL and pastes it elsewhere as hyperlinked text. No thanks. A URL copied should be plain text, period. At least make that an option in Preferences.

    • Dislike that a bookmark selected from Bookmarks obliterates the current tab. Please see how Firefox does this. It should open in a new tab, or at least be a Preferences option to dictate that particular behaviour.

    • New weather widget is rather useless, as it disappears from pages. Weather should be ubiqutious, so either find a spot for it in the upper static real estate, or leave weather functionality to add-ins. This widget has now been turned off, as while it is good in theory it is completely useless in practice.

    • Make hovering over a tab automatically select/switch to it, as the Tab Mix Plus add-in in Firefox does (at least in older versions; I have not switched to newer Firefox, and is why I am looking for an updated browser and have decided to check out Opera).

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you.

    When I click a bookmark from sidebar, it opens in a new tab.
    If clicking via open bookmarks bar, hold down Ctrl.

    Hovering is not selection and that would make no sense for usability.
    Nor does Firefox or any browser behave this way.

  • I love Opera, I think is one of the best web browsers now a day; However, I think it missing some important features.

    Now a day any browser such as chrome, brave, Firefox, MS-Edge have the option to reopen all web-tabs that were open at the moment the browser was closed. If you have 5 web-tabs open and by mistake or computer error the browser close you can recover your last web-tabs session by pressing "Ctrl + Alt + T" but not in Opera.

    Additionally, MS-Edge adds a feedback button on their web-browser which makes it easier to report any web page error with browser incompatibility or to suggest any new feature to the browser without the need of going to a forum.

  • @melving24 By default Opera opens with the tabs that were opened in the last session.

  • @melving24 You can click on the smiley icon at the address bar to report issues with a page.

  • @vegelund

    Thank you.

    I neglected to provide a full context as to why I wish this particular behaviour.

    1. Copying and pasting a URL from the address bar in Opera into Messages on a Mac pastes it as a hyperlink:
      Screen Shot 2020-07-03 at 7.53.56 PM.png
      From Firefox:
      Screen Shot 2020-07-03 at 7.54.39 PM.png
      From Chrome:
      Screen Shot 2020-07-03 at 7.55.18 PM.png
      From Safari:
      Screen Shot 2020-07-03 at 7.55.44 PM.png

    In that context, I want the paste to be plain text. Messages will then turn it into a live link, which I prefer.

    It does paste in Word as a plain text string, so obviously something between the way Opera and Messages are interacting in macOS is changing that paste behaviour in Messages.

    None of the other browsers, as shown, function that way with Messages, and since I often copy and paste shared links from the browser to Messages, it is causing usability issues for workflow efficiency, so at the moment, Opera in that regard is not a preferred browser choice.

    1. I should not have to press an additional key to open a bookmark in a new tab. It should be the default action. How is it at all logical to believe I wish to browse to a new site/page and obliterate the existing site/page I am presently on? That's back to the Dark Age of browsers pre-tabs. In that sense, Mozilla Firefox is the only browser that implements that functionality in a logical manner, and seeing as it was the first mainstream browser to implement tabs in 2003, they got it right right out of the gate. After 17 years, the others still haven't figured this out. They could always incorporate that functionality, and if someone didn't like that behaviour, make it user-selectable in the Preferences. I am certainly well aware of forcing a new tab by pressing Command+click.

    2. I clearly stated Firefox switches to a tab when hovering on it using the add-on extension Tab Mix Plus. It is not a base function of Firefox, and I did not say it was. You state that it "makes no sense for usability," but clearly others do believe it makes sense, as the developer of the Tab Mix Plus extension made that hovering delay automatically switch to that tab a helpful functionality which I happen to greatly appreciate. It's why all applications have user-selectable controls to choose aspects of functionality, to suit different preferences. It's also why there are numerous add-ons to achieve functionality the browser developer does not include, for whatever reason.

    As I stated, I am checking out Opera.

    I was merely requesting/suggesting functions that Opera developers might consider incorporating, to make Opera function more effectively and efficiently for me, in my context.

    In my workflow, these are currently feature and function deficiencies that detract from me adopting Opera as my primary browser.

    I would hope Opera developers accept suggestions for consideration, try them out in the browsers where they do exist, experiment, maybe see areas for improvement, or decide it's not something they wish to pursue, but regardless certainly don't dismiss them out-of-hand as making "no sense for usability."

    Perspective and context and a practical test drive should determine those development decisions, in order to increase an application's user base.

    That's exactly why there are numerous browsers out there, to attract users for any number of reasons.

    I am willing to give Opera a run-through, but in the end, if it's not able to do the tricks I want it to do and need it to do, it's not going to be adopted or used on a regular basis.
