Please return the old Opera looks

I am in agreement with Nana1nana1, the tabs have become comically bright and cartoonish. I have my system set to dark which is almost useless with as much light as my tabs are throwing. Please put the opera interface back to how it was. Or at least give the users choice in preference for gui appearance.

I also agree. It seems to be made for kids or gamers but some users are not ; there is already Opera GX for gamers.
In addition to the aesthetic aspect, it is less ergonomic. The animation when starting Opera is a waste of time and the sound is useless, a lot of space is lost in the sidebar and we have to make big movements depending on the targeted button. The animation when changing of workspace will give me a headache, and I cannot find the button to go to the speed dial anymore.
I hope that you will give us the choice for the gui appearance as proposed by nightmaresoul because I sincerely think, and I am sorry for that, that the new one is not an improvement.

Im planning to switch back to Chrome after a decade with this new UI,
Really bad Tab designs
The space above the Tabs (May be 5px) actually useless

Terrible new design. Centered icons on the sidebar - a powerfully inconvenient tool! Browser view - some kind of lego constructor - it's funny to look at, use - distracts a lot of extra lines

@nightmaresoul The dead space over and under each tab (especially under) is what is intriguing to me. What kind of thought went into that?
In a fancy Bjørvika room someone went: "Oh here we have some dead space under each tab so that when you sometimes want to switch tabs... you don't!"

Who got the idea to use this annoying look with borders ? It's clunky, not seamless at all. At least integrate an option to give the ability for users to choose between this style and the original one. Disappointed with this roll out.

I agree (moreover, have a problem with the add block extensions. Nothing can stop adds on YouTube since the last update)

Re: Please return the old Opera looks
First, if I've posted this in the wrong place it's cos I don't know what I'm doing, ok. Like many people I have hundreds (thousands?) of bookmarks, arranged with folders on the bar then folders-within-folders etc. With the "new look" there is now a huge gap between the icon and the folder or link name, most of which disappears off the right because also the width of the drop-down does not expand to fit. Am working round this for now by having the bookmarks menu permanently open in my l/h tab. A slow but reliable way to find what I want. If you don't fix this I may be driven to use Edge but I'd rather stay with Opera.

I totally agree. I'm using Opera since early Presto-based versions for its usability, and it is now thrown away. New design looks like a broken CSS layout, is it some kind of a joke?

It is too bad that someone thought this monster was a great idea. After all of these years of using a wonderful browser it is now an ugly eye sore.
I am on a couple forums discussing this and everyone feels the same. I have faithfully recommended Opera to so many others.
Now I feel like my faith in Opera has been betrayed. I will no longer recommend Opera to others. I will be working on finding a suitable replacement for all those I have suggested Opera to and will recommend something else to anyone in the future.
Maybe someone should create a forum here for suggestions to other browsers for a replacement.

Please remove all the margins in red and reduce the paddings all the side/search/address/bookmarks/tabs bars too.
Reason: they took too much space of my small screen.

- Set back the Old look and feel (No curved boundaries)
- Font brightness is very low. Redesigned to Set it Good Brightness.
- Title bar and address bar height is more compared to old version.
- Remove the Flash startup animation.
- Frequently occurring Browser Memory Issue. Then, needs to restart the web page.

+1 to all the complaints about the dead space in the top bars, around the tabs etc. Screen space is valuable, make the search bar a little less TALLL while you're at it pleeease

I do not like the new "round licked" look at all. I also agree with all the spacing issues discussed above.
What's really annoying since the redesign is the placement of the mute button in the tabs bar.
I have many tabs open and hit in 4/5 times the mute button instead of navigating to the tab.
The placement in the old design was much more intuitive with less precise clicking, especially with a touchpad. Can you have a look at this?
PS: I use Opera as my main browser since 2001.
The tab grouping feature is pretty cool, btw. Thumbs up for that.

I made an account only and primarily to express that I also really don't like the new look. It broke some functions that opera used to have zero issues. Aesthetically it is not my jam either, it used to feel clean and sleek and now it feels bubbly and almost noisy because of it.
Everything everyone said in this thread is correct. I didn't even update it on purpose because I'd seen how it looked updated and decided I didn't like it, but it updated on its own and it's just a massive disappointment and frustration.
At the very least, I just want the option to return to the old browser layout. I really enjoyed what Opera brought to the table before this update and made it my primary browser because of it. I'm fully prepared to drop it if this is the new normal.
