Now, on Opera 60, I can not to enable Side bar for only Speed Dial.
I do not need Side bar on every page, only on Speed Dial (and other inner browser's pages (bookmarks, extensions)).
Like it was on Opera 58.

I was shocked (really) when I opened a private tab after update to Opera 60.
The new color scheme for the address bar looks weirdly.
With black theme it looks not so bad, but with light not so cool, imho.
What you think about it?
I would prefer more classic disign.
I have the disabled "Show bookmarks bar" option.* Default place for new bookmarks is some folder.
*It is not important because I have no bookmarks in Bookmark bar. Bookmark bar should be hidden anyway.
Now, after the update, when I create a bookmark I see an appearance of Bookmark bar for ~500 ms, and after that Bookmark bar is hidden again. Thus I see the toggling of Bookmark bar (that contains the new bookmark).
The problem is obvious. The new bookmark is created in Bookmark bar and after that it moved to last selected folder with noticeable latency.
The new bookmark should immediately be created in right place like it was before – in the last selected folder. Without the intermediate place.
Dark theme on Opera 60 are too black. Opera 58's Dark theme was a lot of better.
This theme should name "black", not "dark".
Now the bookmarks looks TERRIBLE, white* screenshots of the sites on the black background make me blind. The background of the bookmark page does not should be black. (*Most of the sites have a light theme.)
I need the old dark theme.
This black theme should be additional.
As I said, most sites have a light theme. The old dark theme affected the upper part of the browser and Sidebar (Settings too, but this is the rarely used part of the browser). Switching between sites and browser pages (bookmarks, downloads, history) did not cause discomfort. Light context menu is also well suited to the overwhelming number of sites. Dark side panels did not distract attention when viewing light sites.
Now the whole interface has not just a dark theme, but a black theme. And this theme is too contrasting, bright white text on a practically black background. I suppose the designer decided to copy not the best design of the dark themes of Windows 10 Explorer.
A really good implementation of the dark theme is Darcula (Intellij IDEA), why not copy it? Or Steam design (Valve).
Screenshots of sites on a black background of Bookmarks, the black contrast context menu and the list of recent downloads look foreign on ligth themed sites. Switching between sites and browser pages looks like flash light.
At the same time, the colors of the dark themes of Address Bar and Tabs are not combined with the colors of the dark themes of the sites. Why are you using a dark blue-green color?!
By the way, Windows 10 from the beginning has a dark Taskbar with a light theme, just like it used to be in Opera, and it looks good.
Notice the contrast of the context menu. Opera's context menu is too contrast. The other things too. It is a fact.

Windows 10 Taskbar context menu:
Please, add a function to disable default Address bar icons (Screenshots and Bookmarks), like "My Flow", "Opera Ads Blocker".
Yes, it's good functions for some people, but not for all.
I do not need Screenshots button, I use a OS's screenshots program that works on whole OS, not only in the web page.
Some people use other Bookmarks extension, and they do not need your Bookmarks icon.
I want to have the clear interface without unneeded icons.
So it's better to handle them as different issues.
Ok. This topic is about slow opening of Downloads page.
That topic is about an incorrect order of the downloads entries on Downloads page.
Also I can note one more "improvement" of Opera 60 update about downloads. The file size note was removed from downloads.
The screenshot of a download entry from Opera 58 Downloads page:
has had information about file size.
The note "File not found" is removed too.
So the older version (on Opera 58) was no buggy, and it was more functional. And it looked a bit better, imho, now it takes too much space.
What about this way?
@nnq2603 Just look at your screenshot and look at that Opera UI team did. ShadowFox is another good example of a dark theme implementation.
It's OK that the dark theme affects all UI.
But I would prefer an option that makes the dark theme affect only Sidebar*, Address bar and Tabs. The old version of Opera works almost the same way.
This approach makes working with bright sites comfortable.
*And allow use Sidebar only on the browsers pages (Speed-dial, Bookmars, etc), like it was in Opera 58. I do not need it on common web pages.
I opened a private tab, enable "VPN", opened a site. Connection is through "VPN". There is no log in DNSQuerySniffer about the connection to the site.
Bookmark the site:
The image for the bookmark are loaded non through "VPN".
As a result the part of the connection – DNS resolve – is showed in DNSQuerySniffer log.
This happens then "VPN" enabled only in a private tab. Obviously, because the process of creating of a bookmark is going in common window that is wrong.
DNS over HTTPS is not a decision. Absolutely.
DNS resolve is just a part of connection to the site, the next step is HTTP/HTTPS connection that also in this case does not go through "VPN". In this case IP of the site and a content (in case HTTP) are visible for ISP.
DNS over HTTPS is not a decision. Absolutely.
Here is it.
HTTP (TCP) connection is visible too. It is unacceptable for any good VPN.
(I have used Wireshark.)
I want to use third party extension for Downloads, so the embedded extension disturbs me now. Popup intersects other toolbar icons and the icon occupies the place on tool bar.
Add an option to disable your embedded Downloads extension.
For example, a third party extension allows you see the size, quick open file/directory.
That is, the third party extensions can be better than standard ones. But Opera does not allow to disable the standard extensions. It is disrespect from Opera to its users.
The same is about Bookmarks, Snapshot, Easy Setup icons.
