RE: Opera 65.0.3466.0 developer updateBlogs
Hi, I have a small request, please make the sidebar transparent (as it was in the past), having the current theme as a background, as it's shown below:
Also, if it's not so difficult (do not take much time and resources), please separate it from the Opera's menu panel, when the sidebar is enabled on the SD page or at all.

Привет @qq11q, попробуйте отключить его следующим образом: нажмите "Alt+P", чтобы перейти к настройкам, затем нажмите "Браузер", и прокрутите вниз до "Интерфейс пользователя", а затем снимите флажок слева от "Enable the search popup on selecting text" (у меня это на английском языке).

Hi @teknomobil, @vfbfan, @andrew84, @firuz-u7, @ohmanger, @james438, regarding the issues with the new video pop-out, you can still use the old pop-out implemented by the Opera. All you have to do, is to disable the two flags mentioned here by @kened, then restart the browser. Important is to disable both flags to avoid the issue with freezing/pausing videos in the pop-out.

New Opera stable 49Opera for computers
The Opera 49.0.2725.34 has been promoted to the stable channel
"The Opera 49 has arrived with a collection of improvements, and upgrades to several of our browser features.
The snapshot feature now comes with editing tools, and selfie mode to help personalize your sharing of the web. VK Messenger signs on to the list of integrated sidebar messengers, and we’ve added five new currencies for the currency converter.
Today’s release offers also new customization options, including extensions rearrangement, and an Easy Setup mode for quick browser adjustments. Private mode, the O-Menu, and History panel, all received improvements.
To top it off, Opera 49 welcomes a direct VR Player, and the browser has been sharpened to look its best on HiDPI screens.
Create, edit and send the perfect screenshot
We love to find new things on the Internet, but for the past 20 years, when wanting to share content with our friends, we could only send links, and print screen dumps. Earlier in the year, we embarked to change this, when we released our concept browser.
Continuing our mission of re-imagining what a web browser should be capable of, Opera 49 offers a snapshot tool with editing features, including a selfie camera, to help you add raw emotion to your screenshot. Capture any part of the web, and add your own flare, to let your friends know how exactly you feel about that new film, or how excited you are for your holiday in Rome.
How to use Opera’s snapshot tool
You can launch snapshot, either directly from the sidebar via the camera icon, or by hitting Ctrl + Shift + 5 (⌘ + ⇧ + 5 on macOS). An adjustable frame will appear on your screen, where you can frame exactly what you want, before hitting “Capture” to snap your screenshot. If you wish to quickly snap a full web view screenshot, simply click “Capture Full Screen”.
Once snapped, editing tools – including pencil, arrow, blur, zoom, emojis, and a selfie camera – will appear at the top. When finished, click “Copy and Close” to send your screenshot to your clipboard (you can also hit Ctrl + C from your keyboard). You may also save the screenshot to your system as a .png file.
Opera became the first browser to provide support for 360-degree videos to be played directly into virtual reality headsets. Owners of HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and other OpenVR compatible devices can now easily view the quickly-growing library of awesome 360-degree content.
In order to contribute to the 360-degree content in the web, we partnered with 360 Labs, the world-class production company specializing in immersive, panoramic photography and video. Check out how great their video looks in our VR 360 Player!
Opera’s VR 360 Player will automatically detect an installed VR headset. When a user browses to a video, the “Watch in VR” button will appear on the top (next to the video pop-out button). One simple click will engulf the viewer into the 360-degree world offered by the video. Plus, you will not need a mouse, or keyboard to look around in the video. Simply turn your head in the direction you want to look.
Opera’s VR playback system will not only support 360-degree videos, but standard videos as well. You can launch any of your favorite 2D movies, or standard 180-degree videos through your headset, creating an awesome, personal movie theater experience.
VK Messenger joins built-in sidebar communicators
When you’ve finished creating the perfect screenshot, send it to a friend in one of four integrated sidebar messengers. VK Messenger joins the party, started by Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Telegram.
Since being unveiled in Opera 45, Opera’s integrated sidebar messengers have made chatting and browsing simultaneously a breeze. For each messenger, simply log in to begin chatting. You will be notified by a new message with a notification badge over the messenger icon. Using the shortcut Ctrl + Shift + M (⌘ + ⇧ + M on macOS), will cycle through all opened messengers while surfing the web.
You can pin the sidebar to your browser, so that it is accessible in every tab as you browse. From the Speed Dial, click the slider found at the bottom of the sidebar to pin it to your browser. Your new Easy Setup panel (explained below), offers the choice to pin or unpin the sidebar. You can also go to Settings (Preferences on macOS) > Browser > Sidebar to turn off notification badges for your messengers.
Easy Setup takes over for the previously labeled “Customize Start Page” panel found in the top-right corner of the Speed Dial. Along with its redesigned layout, Easy Setup is an all-in-one panel to help first-time users set up their Opera browser, while providing seasoned veterans a shortcut to commonly-configured features.
Inside Easy Setup are switches to help customize how your Opera browser will look with themes, wallpapers, bookmark, sidebar options and more. You’ll be able to tailor our top features, including ad blocker, configure download locations, manage browsing data, and import bookmarks. If you are switching from another browser, Easy Setup makes it simple to import bookmarks, and data from your old browser, while making Opera your new default browser.
The link to the full settings page is at the bottom of the panel.
Five new currencies for currency converter
The search pop-up tool has been a staple of Opera’s features since the 39th edition of the browser. The utility tool allows you to highlight text from any web page, to begin a new search with your default search engine, or to copy the text to your clipboard.
We have enhanced this tool with a number of convenient features. The search pop-up tool can convert currencies, units of measurement, and time zones to a form that is familiar to you when you highlight them.
The search pop-up tool can currently convert 32 units of measurements, 14 time zones and now 37 currencies. The five new currencies added to the original 32 are: Ukrainian hryvnia (UAH, ₴), Kazakhstani tenge (KZT, ₸), Georgian lari (GEL, ლ, ₾), Egyptian pound (EGP, E£), and Belarusian ruble (BYN).
The currencies are converted to the currency of your choosing. Go to Settings (Preferences in macOS) > Browser > User interface, and select from one of 37 available currencies in the drop-down menu, next to the “On text selection convert currency to” dialogue.
Any value, that is converted can be copied to your clipboard by hovering your mouse over the converted value, and clicking the revealed “Copy” button.
Rearrange your extensions
Your extension icons, placed to the right of the combined search and address bar, can be rearranged. Done similarly as rearranging your tabs, you can click and drag your extensions in any order you please. By default, your extensions are ordered from left to right based on their installation date. You can shop for extensions in our add-ons market. To manage your extension settings, click the box icon found in the sidebar.
Refined private mode
We have altered the appearance of the private mode window for the Windows and Linux platforms. The private window now closer resembles the regular light theme mode of Opera, with an appropriately matched dark address bar. We feel this alteration should cause less eyestrain, as was reported by our users.
O-Menu and History panel improvements
In Opera 48, we reorganized the O-Menu to make it cleaner and more contextual, and added the list of recently closed tabs and windows to the History menu item.
For Windows and Linux users, your browsing history across multiple windows is recorded into a single place. With this “global” history, you can close a tab in one window, and reopen it in another. No matter from which window you will access the history menu, it will contain the same list of closed tabs.
Additionally, closing a window, along with its tabs, is easier to locate. When closing it, all of its tabs will be listed as a single item in the recently closed tabs page. For example, if you terminate 99 tabs from a window, you can later reopen them all under “99 Tabs – Window.”
Looking good on high-resolution monitors
We spent a significant amount of time, to ensure that Opera runs smooth on the latest HiDPI monitors, and the latest Apple macOS system. Icons, tabs, buttons and pop-ups have all been sharpened, and buffered to look their best on the best-available monitors.
New Speed Dial wallpapers
One way to get a glimpse of the sharpened visuals is to try out one of our new wallpapers for your Speed Dial. The new wallpapers come from the works of Tom Anders Watkins and Miguel Noa, and have been modified to fit your Speed Dial. You can find these new wallpapers, and others on our add-ons page".
The Chromium has been updated to version 62.0.3202.62.

New Opera beta 50Future releases
Fresh Opera 50.0.2762.4 has been promoted to the beta channel
"Opera 50 enters the beta stage, with an offering of Chromecast support, the ability to save web pages as PDF, more functional tab context menu, four cryptocurrencies for the currency converter, improved unit converter, and session protection against crashes.
Chromecast is gaining popularity with Google revealing, that it has sold 55 million units, since releasing the device in July 2013. Today, Opera 50 beta supports Chromecast playback.
To start casting, go to Settings (Preferences on macOS) > Browser > User interface, and tick “Enable Chromecast support”. Opera 50 can support casting for videos, tabs and your full desktop display. To start casting a YouTube video, for example, click the cast icon found in the video’s player controls, as shown below. Opening the page’s context menu or opening the O-Menu (View on macOS) are alternatives to begin casting.
At the moment, Opera’s support for Chromecast is available only in certain markets, while we continue to implement this feature on a larger scale.
Save pages as PDF
Storing a page for offline reading, sending it to other devices or safe keeping for future reference can now be done with the "Save Page as PDF" function.
To save it as a PDF file, go to the O-Menu (or File on macOS) and select “Save Page as PDF”. When triggered, it will save the entire web page into a single PDF. A shortcut can be created for this function under Settings (Preferences on macOS) > Browser > Shortcuts > Configure Shortcuts.
The file will take advantage of PDF capabilities, which means it will be smaller than a plain screenshot, stored in PNG format, and you’ll be able to select and copy the text.
Traditional way to create a PDF has been previously available in Opera. First select to print the current page. In the printing dialog choose “Save as PDF” as your printer. There are multiple options, that control how the PDF will be generated including: layout, headers, margins and so on. This is the best option, if you later intend to print it.
What are the differences between these two methods?
The new "Save Page as PDF" option will store exactly what you see on your screen. It’s great for offline reading, sharing pages, or keeping them on your system for future reference. The printing method will ask for the page to layout itself in a printer-friendly way. As a result, you may get something different from what you see on screen. You can try both options on this blog post.
Opera’s "Save Page as PDF" option will save what your browser sees. It will not try to load images, that are currently invisible, which might be the case for sites that load images only, after you have scrolled and made them visible.
This option is screen-friendly, which means it’s optimized to save exactly what you see, and to be convenient for offline reading. However, it’s not prepared to be printed. In case you want to print the page, you should use the printing method, and fine tune the details to your needs.
Tab’s context menu is more functional
Items in a tab’s context menu were cleaned up and grouped into related sections, while receiving new actions. Reopening closed tabs and windows became easier with “Reopen Last Closed Tab” moved to the bottom. The option can change to “Reopen Last Closed Window” (for Windows and Linux platforms), if a full window was the last thing to be closed. “Reload” and “Reload All Tabs” are two new functions, to quickly refresh your current browsing session. The latter will ask for your confirmation, if you have more than 10 tabs opened.
Currency converter extended with cryptocurrencies
The list of currencies recognized by our currency converter is extended with four popular cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), 1.00 BTC, Ethereum (ETH), 1.00 ETH, Bitcoin Cash (BTH), 1.00 BCH, and Litecoin (LTC), 1.00 LTC.
Improved unit converter
Today, our unit converter is becoming even better, as we’ve added support for millimeters [mm] to be converted into inches [in]. In addition, there’s also support for dimensions. This means you’ll be able to convert the dimensions of a 10 x 10″ picture frame, or a 10 x 50 x 25 mm collectible toy car.
Protect your session against crashes
Upon a crash loop detection, Opera will not remove your current browsing session. Instead, all pages will be marked for manual reload upon re-activation, except for the current tab, which will detail the encountered problem. This will fix the annoying issue of losing all opened tabs, due to an unrelated problem such as with syncing, for instance.

RE: Opera 67.0.3574.0 developer updateBlogs
@temkem I rechecked it more closely, and on developer you need to set "dns-over-https": 1, under "flags" section (no need to add "opera-doh": 1,) in the "Local State" file, also (if you don't have it added already from previous settings), you need to add the section as shown below:
save the changes, relaunch the Opera, and the Cloudflare's Secure DNS works by default (also under Linux).
Regarding eSNI, yes it's kinda working from some time in FF - if you enable it manually (it's disabled by default), and it is expected to be added in Chromium (so in the Opera, since it's based on it), but:
1. "eSNI is still an evolving standard, Firefox and Cloudflare just decided to implement a draft before the standard was finalized. Chrome will likely implement it as soon as it’s finalized." - the source link.
2. The current status on that matter from Chromium's team.
RE: [Solved]Widevinecdm supportOpera for Linux
Hi @ganesanrajesh, you can check, if the below steps will help in your case:
1. Download the libffmpeg for NW.js, as mentioned here, or version of the lib, that matches (or is closest to) the Chromium version for your Opera, e.g. in the recent stable 76.0.3809.132 try one of 76...100, that matches your Ubuntu/Linux distro from here, and navigate to Opera's installation root (check the path in
opera:about> Paths > Install), add a new "lib_extra" subfolder, and unpack the "libffmpeg.so" file from the archive/package mentioned above into it.
2. If you have Widevine already installed on one of the paths, that Opera can recognize and it still doesn't work, you can try to follow the steps mentioned here.
New Opera stable 55Opera for computers
The Opera 55.0.2994.37 has been promoted to the stable channel
The change log, and the announcement: "Opera 55 offers better control of web pages, and more accessible bookmarks".
"It has been a big summer for us at Opera, and today we are excited to unveil the Opera 55.
The new stable build of our browser includes smarter layout for the settings page, expanded security badge, and page information pop-up for better page control, easier Chrome Web Store extension installation, and more accessible bookmarks.
Our busy, and exciting summer continued on July 27, when we became a listed company on the Nasdaq market, and enjoyed successful initial public offering. This was major milestone for our company, and one we could not have accomplished without the support and trust from you, our users. A week later, Opera launched as a snap in the Snap Store for Linux systems.
In the meantime, our desktop team has been hard at work to produce Opera 55 for you.
New layout of settings page, with dark theme support
Opera 55’s settings page has been restructured into four sections, to help you locate and adjust the browser’s features, security options, wallpapers and more. In addition, Opera’s dark theme will be applied to the settings page, if you have it enabled for the browser.
The four sections of the settings page include: Basic, Privacy and security, Features, and Browser.
Basic appears, when opening settings, and includes the most popular features and options in Opera. This section includes options for blocking ads, wallpapers, appearances, the sidebar, synchronization, search engines, changing your default browser, and browser startup options.
The remaining three sections are nested in Advanced. You can click Advanced in the left sidebar of the settings page, to reveal them.
Privacy and security includes preferences for privacy and security, and webRTC.
Features includes options for Opera’s VPN, battery saver, Instant Search, My Flow, the search pop-up, the video pop out, personal news, and Opera Turbo.
Finally, Browser includes options for the start page, user interface, languages, downloads, system, shortcuts, and for the reset of settings.
Use the search bar in the top-right corner of the settings page, if you are having trouble locating something.
The settings page can be opened by clicking the cogwheel icon in the left sidebar of the Opera’s start page. You can adjust common settings in Opera by opening Easy Setup in the top-right corner of the start page.
Better control of the pages you visit, with expanded badge pop-up menu
Security badges in the Opera provide important security, and page information about the current website, or web page you are viewing. They tell you, if a page has secured connection, what kind of certificate it has, and which content settings are used.
Opera 55 improves the page information pop-up, by providing all security, and content information about the page in one place, as well as offering shortcuts to Opera’s settings page for adjusting the page’s content settings. Now, for example, if you wish for a website to stop tracking your location, you can choose to have Opera always block location tracking from the pop-up, instead of going to the Settings.
To open the page information pop-up for the web page you are viewing, click the badge to the left of the web address in the address and search bar. The top of the pop-up will show, if the web page is on a secure or an insecure connection. Certificates and cookies used for this page can be viewed in detail by clicking their respective links in the pop-up.
You can adjust content settings for the entire website from the security badge pop-up. Click on the Site settings button, to open the content settings page, and customize how Opera will handle content such as: Flash, camera and microphone access, or ad blocking for the website.
Easy installation of Chrome extensions
Extensions from the Chrome Web Store are now easier to install on Opera 55. The next time you visit the extensions web store, you will be offered to click the Install Extension button, found at the top of the page. This will allow you to quickly add extensions from the store in Opera.
Adding Chrome extensions is simple. Browse Chrome’s catalogue for the extension you want, and click the + Add to Opera button. To complete the installation, you will then go to Opera’s extensions manager, and confirm the installation by clicking the install button.
Please note, that some extensions require APIs (applications programming interfaces), that are not fully supported in Opera. Follow through with the extension’s installation in Opera, to confirm its compatibility.
The Chrome Web Store icon will appear in the address and search bar, after you install the web store extension.
Easier access to your bookmarks
The bookmarks bar is turned on by default for Opera 55, so you can access your bookmarks at anytime, while browsing.
To add a web page to the bookmarks bar, click the heart icon on the right side of the address and search bar, and select Bookmarks Bar from the dropdown menu. You can later edit, open or delete the bookmark, by right-click or Ctrl+click on it, and opening its context menu.
There are also other ways to add a page to the bookmarks bar – in Settings, or Easy Setup.
If you have not enabled the bookmarks bar before, updating to Opera 55, there will be five suggested bookmarks for popular websites in your country. These bookmarks will not appear, and your original bookmarks will remain if you already have the bookmarks bar enabled.
You can disable the bookmarks bar in the Opera’s settings, in the bookmark bar’s context menu with Hide Bookmarks Bar, or in Easy Setup. You can edit or remove bookmarks in the bookmarks page, accessible from the heart icon in the sidebar of Opera’s start page."
The Chromium has been updated to version 68.0.3440.106.
