Just checked the concept - and I FREAKIN' LOVE IT! It's really unique, and I like how it solves some of the usual browser issues - like the 'player' you added, or having two tabs on the same screen without having them as separate windows (chatting on Messenger and browsing the web side by side, for example), screenshots etc. It's basically a lot of separate apps I use in one - Franz for chatting, SnagIt for screenshots, Opera Beta of course for browsing... It looks visually very pleasing as well!
Implementing those features into Opera is cool, however I don't see why Neon couldn't become a full-on browser on its own. If so, here are a few things that could make it a 'proper' browser:
- The 'tab' buttons could be smaller, the whole tab bar could be slimmer too - just like the bar on the left.
- Opera's full synchronization service.
- Extensions, the most crucial thing. I won't log in or surf much of the web without Disconnect, AdGuard etc.
In the end, this is very much enjoyed. I am glad I stuck with Opera for so many years. You seem to be the leaders in innovation. Can't wait to see these features implemented into Opera, however long that process will be.
