  • There’re small Search Tabs improvements,

    No improvements regarding the details if comparing the old TabMenu vs SearchTabs

  • We are still waiting for the Apple M1 native support.

  • visually there are still different spaces between the 'recently closed/open' text and highlighted first item in the list. Also, recently close/open text is still hardly readable in dark mode (in contrast to 'show more' button).

  • Opera again does not recognize and complete URLs of my own speed dials or bookmarks when I start typing in the address bar.

  • @andrew84 Well, I understand aesthetic issues, but this time the small hick-up doesn't bother me so much. The following screenshots were made using Opera Stable. You'll understand why it's not visible in quickly changing conditions (search is a very dynamic process).

    View the pictures in original size (click them).

    [Fig. 1] "Recently closed" has correct visibility (system, Opera, monitor data attached)

    [Fig. 2] "Open tabs" is clear and well distinctive.

    [Fig. 3] Everything's OK, isn't it? 😉 (when highlighting is far from the two titles)

  • @pavelopdev Yes, but if comparing it with the 'enhanced address bar' pane, then 'recently closed' and 'visit again' titles are more clear (the both SearchTabs and enhanced address bar popups have the same background color). So I don't see a problem of unifying the titles which are used on the same background.

    The same story is with vertical spaces below the 'recently closed' and 'open tabs' titles. Not a big problem at all, but the spaces are really different and I also don't see a problem of moving the first recently closed item a bit lower on few pixels.

  • @andrew84 Yes, I agree with you generally as we have the same, well, similar, vision on Opera details. I have forgotten about BABE probably (Am I right?)

    Such unifying modules/functions/libraries would be godsend from programmers point of view. If you have to program such things as you pointed out are a daunting task, the more so Opera has small resources. No wonder they eschew those "bugs".

    BTW. You have touched an interesting issue of monitor settings, indirectly and unintentionally perhaps, but that's another subject to ponder how to set the damn monitors to get the best possible image from them. 😉

  • Return the previous look of the search field on SearchTabs popup. It was much more clear and modern without visible text field and with the bigger text.

  • @pavelopdev:

    BABE probably (Am I right?)

    Yes,
    enhanced address bar = BABE

  • @andrew84 Well, it's not perfect. It might be polished, but do you recall the famous word mañana heard many times in this Opera forums in form of never fading echo: 🙂

    From Wiktionary

    Noun
    mañana m (plural mañanas)

    the near future; tomorrow
    En un día del mañana. ― Some day in the near future.

    [Fig. 1] Open tabs and Recently closed are too washy and decidedly too small.

  • @pavelopdev said in Opera 75.0.3960.0 developer update:

    issue of monitor settings, indirectly and unintentionally perhaps

    Just now I noticed that the items text is bigger on your screenshots.
    I also noticed that on your screenshots 'Recently closed' and 'Show more' text is cut.

  • @andrew84 The damn f****g Opera!

    I've spent a lot of time making dozens of screenshots to find out the cause of the cuts you noticed.
    Thank you very much!

    The following screenshots explain the source of the phenomenon.

    No matter what font size or Page zoom is selected. It is bad programming habit example. A code control is also crappy, I presume.

  • need to make with address settings to more sites folder and temporary sites where the user came because we must have the same great translation of the buttons is large, then it will be necessary, sidebar buttons bigger and wider as there still have something new Wallpaper need to make the folders need the news feed to make it easier. Another auto-translator and, so that the opera can stretch the image,the image can be updated. You also need several modes of the copy text panel when selecting text and, paste quickly into the search field and, forms, more, you need to, picture-pictures when you click on them unfolds to the full screen in all sites. Very much missed. It's still time, head typing in, browsers do.

  • 75.0.3967.0

    Edit 2: Upload seems to be in progress.

  • @leocg Windows and Mac ist just uploading.

  • @ralf-brinkmann And they are there now.

  • @leocg Only the Autoupdate file. Can I download and use this as a normal installation file for my standalone installation? I have never tried that out.

  • @ralf-brinkmann Not sure. I remember have tried once and that it didn't work.

  • @leocg Correct. Didn't work. So I have to wait a little longer.
