New Opera developer 27

  • The first Opera developer 27.0.1670.0, the change log, and the official announcement ;-)

    Highlights:

    1. Syncing Bookmarks with Android: If you install Opera browser beta for Android mobile and Opera developer 27 on your computer, you can see cross-device syncing in action for the first time:

    2. Sync open tabs between computers: In Opera for computers, you can now sync your open tabs:

    1. Improvements to the bookmarks manager: Now, when you right-click on a sidebar item, a context menu gives you the option to rename or delete top-level folders:

  • Opera-developer 27 on Kubuntu.

    Now I have got used to it, it has replaced my trusty V12.15. It is much quicker and works where V12 does not.

    One UI suggestion: have another icon to add bookmark or change the 'add bookmark to bookmarks bar. It is just as easy to drag and drop on the toolbar, but not so easy for bookmarks. Control D might add a sub-folders sub-menu.

    Now for an oddity. www.bbc.co/weather allows you to add cookies for favourite locations. You can add as many as you like on V12 and Firefox, but only one/two with V27.

    There are never more than two www.bbc.co/weather cookies in my cookie jar.

  • Here it is simnply lovely! An amazing alternative as Google Chrome is more and more heavy each day. Making a smooth comeback using Opera Developer (now v27) daily. Loving it so far!

    Just wanted to make some features request. Can I make them here or do we have a special section for this? :)

    Cheers from Brazil. ;)

  • Just wanted to make some features request. Can I make them here or do we have a special section for this?

    There is a Suggestion Box Area

    Just check if the request wasn't made before. And also try to explain briefly why do you need the feature and/or why do you think it would be good for the users.

  • Opera-developer 27 on Kubuntu.

    There have been a couple of updates and, unless I missed it before, there is now a heart icon to add a URL to bookmarks.

    The flexible bookmark management has been broken: it's no longer possible to drag and drop bookmarks into sub-folders. I hope that normal service will resume with a later update.

    I note that there is a 'Select' option for bookmark folders and bookmarks. I have experimented with the feature, but it does not support multiple selection actions, atm. No doubt it will be a useful feature at a later stage or will be dropped.

    I just noted the 27.0.1683.0 update notes: perhaps the above has already been addressed.

    Browsing and startup is still wonderfully fast and the UI is efficient and intuitive. I like the pdf display feature and the ability to right-click and save to the computer. Opera-developer is not picking up installed Flash in Linux, yet.

    Did you alreday had installed pepperflashplugin-nonfree and the correct version for Opera DEV?

    sudo apt-get install pepperflashplugin-nonfree   
    sudo update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install --beta
    
  • PepperFlashPlugin 16 BETA from Adobe's webpage does not really work on Opera 27.0.1683.0 DEV.

  • may be a

    sudo su
    update-pepperflashplugin-nonfree --install --unstable 
    

    can make your Pepperflash plugin work with current Opera.

    Hi @royleith, it's known issue: "Dragging bookmarks into folders does not work. You can work around this via enabling the flag opera://flags/#bookmarks-multi-drag (which will also allow you to select and drag multiple bookmarks)" ;-)

  • New Opera developer 27.0.1689.0, the change log, and few, selected changes:

    • "* DNA-29883 Opera on 32-bit Windows does not find pepper flash"

    • "* DNA-30219 Notification when the PEPPER is present but disabled"

    • "* DNA-28947 Shift+RightClick menu on Speed Dial Folder(s) doesn’t work as it does with single thumbnails"

  • What's with the changed position of the Speed Dial - Bookmarks - Discovery bar on Speed Dial page? It's so confusing. :XP:

    What has changed? I don't remember any changes since 1683.

  • Hi @et2403, you can disable it (switch back to the old bar): go to the address bar, type opera:flags#webui-navigation-bar, and press enter, then select "Disabled" from the drop-down, and then restart the Opera ;-)

    That worked. :)

  • Speed Dial - Bookmarks - Discovery / opera:flags#webui-navigation-bar

    I liked it better on the left side, because it makes the vertical space on my 16:9 monitor even smaller, so I disabled it again.

    But maybe the OPERA guys can make it moveable or implement an option to show it where one likes it to be (left, right, top, bottom)?

  • A small update - Opera developer 27.0.1689.2, the change log, and the official announcement - sync works again, and small but IMHO precious bonus: you can set now the DuckDuckGo as the default search engine ;-) :cheers:

  • Awesome I love DuckDuckGo! At the moment it is just something we are experimenting with. Of course I really hope we keep it!

  • One day the users will be able to change the search engine on speed dial search bar? Bing is doing browser sniffing, there is nothing you can do about it? :(

    Small bug: try to edit an added search engine, in the second time does not allow edittion (the small menu does not show up)
