  • For the love of all that is holy, add a light mode. This dark-mode is too dark during the day. Just let me pick any color I want (cfr Vivaldi)

  • @bgiesing39 wait, where is that hidden? The Razor chrome?

  • Hello first of all and congrats on this very promising browser.
    I would like to say I am quite satisfied by how it looks and what are the possibilities with it.

    But sadly I am dissapointed in a couple of things which I'd like fixed/added.

    I will list them below with bullet points and will keep on editing this post(if possible to add extra things I might notice):

    • I run a dual monitor setup so I keep 2-3(sometimes even 4) windows of a browser open. Having a total of ~25-30 tabs open, the opera browser goes crazy in terms of memory and CPU usage. I saw 80% CPU usage and 100% memory usage on a i5 6600k with 16GB of RAM. And opening the Task Manager, it says there are 59-60 processes open.
    • The Gamer corner needs to be disable-able. I follow games, I follow news, but I don't need to have these in front of my eyes every time I open the browser.
    • Speaking of opening the browser, and I've mentioned above about keeping 2-3 windows open, I consider it mandatory for me to have all windows re-opened upon restarting the browser, not only the last window accessed.
      To make sure I made myself understood with the last bullet point, an example: 3 windows, 1 facebook, 1 whatsappweb and 1 reddit. When I turn off the PC or close the browser, I want all windows to close. When I'm reopening the browser, I want all 3 windows to be open.
    • To Be Continued.

    Really looking forward to see improvements.

    Thank you for this browser.

  • @qqq said in GX Feedback:

    Please add an option to disable it, or at least have it not default to it when I drag out a tab to create a new window. Also, being able to start out on speed dial would be nice.

    Also, when you drag a tab from a window that only has that tab into another window with more tabs, instead of closing the window upon merging/transfering the tab, it leaves behind a window with only the GX Corner tab on it, so you have to go back and close it manually, which kind of defeats the purpose of moving a tab from one window to another...

  • @kalikarih Your third point can probably be don eusing the registry, just look up on how to start program upon boot. And I have noticed that the browser saves the opened tabs anyways, so i gues that works.

  • @kalikarih same, i just checked task manager and opera is using 60% of my cpu (i5 6400) while chrome doesnt have this issue 😞

  • Hi there.
    Maybe I have not find the options but is it possible to turn the sidebar's extensions (what's app, messenger,...) to a dark theme?
    Thank you!

  • @sarek1701 Nope, it would depend on Facebook, etc.

  • @leocg Ok, thanks for the reply!

  • Hurm im not getting lower ram usage than google chrome lolalt text

  • @xizzul I opened four websites in both Chrome and Opera GX and Opera is using less memory:

  • Can we do the side bar like this? Optional ofc.

  • I have still an issue with messenger application (Facebook). This was the reason why I shifted to mozilla. And in Opera GX the problem still exist. While typing long message, the left bar is shifting above and above and there is a problem to get to the people from the top, mostly to people which are you typing now. This is so confusing...

    On the picture you can see the issue with the bar which is moved upwards. Only the refresh button could restore it to the default value which is annoying

  • @wyczesanygrzesio That's interesting. I had the same issue a few month ago but it disappeared like it came. And I agree, it was really annoying.
    I still have problems with Messenger such as sending files making it crash 🤷.

  • So When is the Discord extension coming in the sidebar ?
    Like whatsapp and messenger are already there .

  • Hey guys!
    Been loving this browser ever since Linus Tech Tips had a review about it, and using it as my main since then.
    Just had a fresh install of my computer and re-downloaded Opera GX. Previously I had installed an Instagram sidebar extension, but I can no longer find this one on the market. Could it possibly have been removed since the "normal" Opera now includes it in the sidebar by default?
    Is it possible to have it enabled by default in Opera GX as well? Or do you have any extensions I could try out?

    Thanks in advance, and keep up the good work!

    Do a right click on the sidebar to select (activate) the Instagram feature.

    Yeah, that's how I used to be able to enable it, but it seems like it's no longer there.

  • @meji Go to the next page: opera://flags/#instagram-panel and check if it’s enabled.

    #instagram-panel

    Had a look, but can't find any results when searching for "Instagram"
