I really like opera neon. I've already set it as primary browser because I like innovation and I like the interface. It's sweet and it has some nice features. But since it's new, I have some suggestions:
First of all: I think that some people (like me) need adblock in their life, so add-ons are a must. I hope this will be available soon.
I like the idea with the circle tabs, but I think it's kinda messy because of the (live?) screenshots that are displayed in the big circles. I think that just the big pictogram like messenger, facebook, etc...would be better. Although, in some situations it does look nice, for ex. YouTube. But now, the titles are kinda small and not really clear. I have the intension to open a tab that's already open because I don't see it immediately.
Their should be a + button for tabs under the tabs because it's kinda strange to look at your tabs and thinking 'hey i want a new tab" and then you need to go all the way to the left side. Okay, this looks kind of exaggerated, but IRL this takes time.
I think that the white bar on top takes away the beauty about the design. It takes away the focus of the real page. But maybe this one is only me...
I like the idea of adding circle tabs to the home screen, but it kinda sucks that you can't drag them around. I kinda like having a static place for a tab so I can easily access them. Also, I don't really like that sites that you visit a lot also pin on the home screen. Maybe some people do but I think the screenshots aren't so pretty of the sites and the other clear items do.
I think this are my top concers about Opera Neon, it's really nice but these changes would make it my real primary browser because now i'm doubting to go back to chrome since it's less playful making it faster in general. Sorry, if there are a lot mistakes in my text. English is not my first language.
Please, share your thoughts on this, have a nice day
