  • Hi there, Today check out the new Opera developer update with the new layout of the enhanced address bar and some other fixes and improvements. We are also aware and currently working on the Snapshot minor issue. For the whole list of changes, see the full changelog. Installation links: Opera developer for Windows (Using the…

  • The enhanced address bar is working perfectly. I liked the option to open the shortcuts in the current window. This makes navigation more fluid.

  • Who is responsible for developing the built-in ad blocker? It doesn't block ads on YouTube anymore. Other ad blockers had the same issue, but they managed to fix it.

  • @ghirahim: Same problem here.

  • BABE button “Send your opinion”, is not working.

  • Dark mode for the 'Search in tabs' popup is finally here.

    • There's a bug, by the way. After opening the popup a first item is always focused (doesn't matter if this recently closed or only open tabs, dark or light theme).
      I guess that:
    1. Currently active tab should be highlighted while opening the popup.
    2. Active tab should stay highlighted while moving the cursor (2nd type of highlighting should be used for the hovered items). That's how it works in Tab menu.

    • DNA-87923 Fix BABE layout
      Layout (scaling) is still broken if page zoom in Settings is set more than 100%.

    • DNA-87766 [PIP] When clicking on timeline the volume indicator jumps to the full
      Fixed, but play/pause button still flickers (play>pause) while clicking on timeline.

  • I still don't have other devices button on my stable up to date opera.

  • @balcis That's "normal", it never really worked as should.

    By the way, I'm seeing it here.

  • Maybe selected item's fav icon should on the white backgound (like it works for the addess bar dropdown)

    Also, 'open tabs' and 'recently closed' titles text is hardly readable.

  • Is it an intended change that settings (open full page/in panel) for the History/Bookmarks in the sidebar setup also affects OMenu?
    If in the sidebar setup is selected 'open in panel', then OMenu > History/Bookmarks opens in panel as well. I think this is not correct.

  • @kened The old way, with the pages opening in a new tab, were better for me.

  • The function "Clear browsing data (CRTL + H) has an error. The window is looping when clicking on" clearing data "

  • @andrew84 One more thing is that when I hover a tab in TabMenu the background tab on the toolbar is also highlighted (also tab preview is shown). No such behavior in 'Search in tabs'.

    • It must be realized now how tiny but functional/handy the TabMenu was.
  • @leocg: I believe that this way the navigation is more fluid, but there could be an option menu for the user to choose between the two ways to open links.

  • Still, the pip button only appears on Netflix, if the user clicks on the end of the video. After that it is possible to return to any part of the video; pip button will be available.

    • DNA-87798 Remove”Show more” hover state

    Why.. how to determine now that this is a button? The button looks like a domain text in the list, the hand cursor should be applied at least.

    Also, the inactive button is more visible than 'Recently closed' text itself in dark mode.

    Active button is weird blue.

  • Add quick action buttons, like in Quick Access (I suggest even more buttons to add Print/Save as/Full screen/Find.. Snapshot is not necessary as it seems)
    Make sections collapsable. The same story was with Quick Access feature, not all users need top sites (I'm afraid that most don't need)

  • When I open the download page (CTRL-J) I have to press the tab button twice to reach the button "Erase download list". Before it was only one tab. Is this a wanted changing?
