  • Comfortable user friendly browser ever

  • Guys, please add touchpad gestures, like in Chrome or Edge, and Opera will be the perfect browser.

  • ¡Wow! I started using the Opera browser earlier this year, I inmediately fell in love with it. My favorite features are the ETH wallet and it's speedy browsing experience.

  • Why is there a few pixels of grey in between each tab in the new update? It looks god awful, adds unnecessary brightness and completely wastes screen space, please remove this asap.

  • @tresle: Exaclty, that looks really bad. This is dark theme, there shouldn't be so bright elements in UI.
    Next thing - how can I disable Extensions button in second bar (next to download button)? I don't need this..

  • Version 69 and the trackpad swipe do not exist, it's crazy.

    Impossible for Opera team, they are dumb.

  • @versuri And you are banned.

  • Hi. New version released for Linux but no update has been offered via the Opera Linux repository. Any hope of getting the latest version from the repository in the near future. Looks nice. Thank you.

  • How I can use Celsius weather? I don't understand Faregnates.

  • @wfpl You can change it in settings page.

  • Make not active workspace have some indicator that it has opened some tabs. I really don't use it just because I would forget about it otherwise. Like a dot on a workspace with tabs opened, that is not currently selected. I would use them if You do that.

  • Please allow the option to select the sorting of tiles so that the new tile is always on top. When a user has more than 100 tiles, then I have to spend a lot of time to add a new one. If adding a tile is on top, then I will spend no more than 1 second on it.

  • Why is there white lines between each tab now? It looks very very very disconcerting in dark themed opera. Will this be addressed?

  • @leocg: translating: Now Opera is my favorite Browser. Don't use all Memory from my pc like Chrome and FireFox... Having good extensions, all good! I love it, Tks! PS.: The weather in initial page was amazing.

  • @osloawesome This is true. I literally have no idea why don't all the Chrome people use Opera. It's basically Chrome, but better. Literally. The same engine with less memory eating, and more features at the same time. And You can always use Chrome extensions in Opera.

  • @smokofenek well that's a good question, I think it's just convenience, people in general don't literally look for why I'll use my PC, NB, CP, .. the best possible way, they just use and how Android has Chrome so My Pc will too. And as a developer something would be usefull for beginers "F12" button, but I prefer Opera. 🙂

  • @osloawesome Chrome generally isn't bad browser. But there are people who tried Opera, yet they didn't like it. I dunno, design? But all those new browsers look very similar and design doesn't matter that much. I can easily switch between any browser. And I have used about 30 different browsers Some of them doesn't exist now. If it's useful, why not use it? If the browser works different way like FireFox for example, I can understand. But Chrome and Opera? They work the very same way. When I was first told that only 4% of people use Opera I thought it's a joke. I thought of maybe a bit less than Chrome or below FireFox. But just that? It's unbelievable as this browser is IMO the most useful in any way. Superior to Chrome. Other things are, as I said, matter of choice. FF works differently, Vivaldi is different, Brave too... but Opera could have been at least similar to Chrome in popularity, if not better.

    Still, Opera isn't perfect. There is many things they could or maybe should have done better. But they are still making new things. Chrome is basically the same for ages. Does anything changed in Chrome in past 5 years? Opera added many new features. Useful or not (You can always disable what You don't use).

    I hope they will make workspaces better, with the idea I gave higher in the comment section. Or even something other people mentioned.

  • @horaink If you are using Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial the latest version of Opera can't be downloaded and installed using APT due to a dependency problem involving libgtk. Opera 69 needs libgtk-3.19.12 and Xenial only has libgtk-3.18.9 which is dangerous to upgrade and not something to do rashly. If you want to keep using Opera 69 and above you have to download the latest deb package from the Opera website and either extract it to a directory with file roller and run it from there using the terminal or a custom made shortcut, or, alternatively extract, alter and rebuild the deb package as described here:

    Then install it manually.

    (All updates in future will need to be done by the same means.)

    Everything seems to work perfectly, for me at least, other than a highlight missing from the Opera menu when using the dark theme. In my view Opera is such a great browser that the small investment of time described above is well worth it until next April when Xenial reaches the end of its long term support.

    A real pity that the Opera team never noticed the problem however because on Xenial Opera stops offering updates from its repository without any warning leaving huge numbers of loyal Opera aficionados in the dark about what has happened.
