Opera 70 comes with easier access to closed tabs, simpler searches, and new Workspace icons

  • @sgrandin I submitted this as a bug, DNAWIZ-106411, and added screenshots from a couple of sites, but so far it's been blown off, specifically that I didn't wait long enough for the sites' pages to fully load in print preview. BS! So I've had to spend more time on this with screenshots, to make up for an Opera tech(s) not doing their job, or at least having the sense to ask the right questions first before drawing a conclusion.

    But even were it were a matter of waiting for the site to load, it would still be a bug, since in all the time Opera has been using the current print module, pages and thus page numbers have never been slow to load.

    With support like this, it's no wonder Opera's print module's UI design is so insensitive to users who need to print from it relatively frequently.

  • In recent days I identified that the other browser (Sorry, I have to say it, edge) has a utility called collections.
    It is the possibility of saving specific pages without the need to fill up with bookmarks.
    Opera is going to incorporate something similar, for example called a wish list

  • @sgrandin As far as I know, Opera uses Chromium's print module. And, at least here, pages don't get that much time to show up in print preview.
    Could be a little faster? Maybe, but it's not something that slow currently.

  • @Rlopera How those Collections work? Wouldn't it be just a different way to bookmark a page?

  • @leocg It works more or less like a bookmark, but you don't fill your bookmarks bar with many links, for example, you want to buy some shoes, view several pages and see many options that you like, 20 or 30, with the collections you keep that there and not you modify your bookmarks, you don't leave 20 or 30 shoe link in your bookmarks bar. My friend uses edge and I saw that she used the collections ... and I found it interesting

  • So it isn't really different from saving a grout of tabs as a bookmark folder?

  • @leocg FYI: After updates different sidebar icons are re-enabled (e.g. facebook, sometimes instagram) or re-disabled (e.g. addons, sometimes whatsapp). This "excellent" feature changes from version to version.

  • The reopening of the closed tabs only is now eliminated. The new version, where the opened and the recently closed tabs simultaneously seen is a nightmare. Before v70 the search-in-opened-tabs flag could be used to disable showing the opened tabs. Now it is not possible. Why was it necessary? It is an idiot "development".

    You can't understand why Opera did this. Completely removed.

    Please Opera, come back with the choice !!!

  • @wagnerfilho89: Unfortunately, I know why. Because the sw engineers rule the development. The users are less important.

    @leocg: Yes. But when I click the button, nothing happens. Will notify APWG.

    It appears that APWG resolved the issue. So far able to open bank site with no problem.
