Opera 25 beta 1

  • Haha, I remember how I was upset about the previous version. Now that looks at least interesting!

    At least?! 😉

    How?? I'm unable to perform / enable this. Considering I'm in CM's Android 4.4...

    Swipe up for search from Android... you should be able to swipe up from bottom bar (where it's visible) - the one that has 'back', 'home' and 'apps' button.

    Can you keep it consistent with the desktop version? You added an unremovable bookmarks tile to the Speed Dial, it makes no sense to have it there. Put it in the menu or in swipe to the right (History/SD/Bookmarks/Discover views). How will you treat the Speed Dial items' positions when sync comes back since there's no correspondent tile in the desktop version?

    This is beta 😉

  • I'm very picky. 😃
    But you did this to me! You made me always expect high quality from Opera. ^^

    My phone has capacitive buttons. You meant the gesture for Google Now (aka "Search assistant") which I configured to long-press Home.

    This shortcut to Opera from anywhere is amazing!!

  • Finally, very good improvments :yes:
    Swipe up is only for soft key, right? I have to long-press home in Xperia S (original ROM). Thanks for the update 🆙

  • Currently I've got Accept-Encoding:gzip,deflate,lzma detected via echo.opera.com and I know that lzma shouldn't be there. Any insight on this matter?

  • upload x86 version to the opera ftp server for those who dont use google play like me huh?

  • Off-road doesn't seem to save as much data as older Off-Road/Turbo which used Presto. Data savings worsened going from 82% (Presto) to 30% in the beta.

    Hopefully these issues can be worked on as I get the feeling Opera wants to eventually retire the Presto servers and repurpose them for other uses.

  • @ngamer01
    Feels like a transparent version of Max running only for debugging purpose.

  • It seems that opera takes over control of phone capacative menu and back buttons when in home or application screen. When in any other application buttons work ok.
    When on home or app screen, back button doesn't work at all, and long pressing menu button opens opera. This occurs also if opera is is closed normally or force closed from apps settings.

  • I've checked setting for long menu long press and it's search assistent. Opera is probably default for this.

    Perhaps this issue with back button isn't related to opera at all, but I've just recently start to use it again (because of the bookmarks) and notice this problem.

  • And we still can't share selected test sad 😞

  • @karafeka
    You got a background filter similar with Bigtincan app which doesn't use the local webserver.

  • good

  • Hi,

    we have just released a bugfixing update to beta channel, it is now available to download from Google Play market.

    Changelog:

    • Fixed issue with video playback
    • Fixed various issues with bookmarks
    • Fixed issues with history items
    • Various stability improvements
  • App crash in attempt to type any letter on address bar. Nexus S running ICS.

  • Anybody knows if app deletion erase downloaded items?

  • How to reproduce:

    • fresh install and initialization
    • check any url address and save as speeddial
    • now address bar is not functional, app stalls until closing.
      Where is the glitch, on phone partition (storage?) or app closes itself?
  • If you reopen a closed tab and press back button, the tab closes again. I would expect it to go back in history.

  • waaaw,good.

  • App crash in attempt to type any letter on address bar. Nexus S running ICS.

    Fixed in latest beta. Another issue is with Google search engine and perhaps other g services since v24. Is not clear why after 2-3 toggles (any, especially GPU override included) in opera:flags page result a crash instead Google search results. Same Nexus without g/sw/network localization engaged, that being said because via mock location is even worse.
