Opera Next 20.0.1387.37 update

Hi, here is another update for Opera Next.

The update includes new Chromium, fixes for Net Installer and other bug fixes that could be more or less described as a stabilization of the browser. We also updated and fixed various translations issues and missing strings. Have fun testing :)

Highlights

  • It is possible now to select second and some more links from Recently Closed, when the list is scrollable
  • Network installer fixes
  • New and improved translations
  • Chromium updated to version 33.0.1750.91

        for me the horse is out. :D

        On the weekend i was sitting in a train and looked outside. Suddenly a white horse was looking outside a red brick house and he was trying to reach a bush to eat something. :D It was in Hannover/Germany by the way. ;)

        • ayespy

          I have seen an article about a German woman who brought her Arabian gelding in the house during the bitter cold to protect it, and then just let it keep living in there, because it got used to it. I could swear it was in Hannover.

    No mixed private/normal tabs in one windows, (mobile Opera can do it)
    no real bookmarks,
    no native adblock … no Opera > 12 on my computer ;)

    • justSQL

      Quick tip; You won’t find any new features added to next stream, keep your eyes on the Dev stream where new features get added.
      But yeah, don’t expect any of these options coming at all (Adblock most certainly) MAYBE power-user options for bookmarks / tab mixing.

    Are there plans to support Linux? If so do you have any time estimates available?

      • Shawny_Shawn

        At least you’re including some links now when you post those useless quotes. They’re still useless quotes, however.

        If they were truly serious about supporting Linux, then they’d at least be able to provide some reasonable timeframe or deadline. They wouldn’t be telling us, “Don’t have a date yet, though.”, and then months later still be telling us, “it’s premature to give a release date.”

        Professional software developers know (or should know) roughly when a given feature will be supported. Instead of these pointless and vague “answers” they’ve been throwing at us, they’d be telling us, “We will support Linux in Opera 23.” or “We will support Linux by the start of May 2014.”

        • Leonardo Gomes

          You are new to Opera or you would know that they never give (exact) dates unless for what is already read to be released.

          • Shawny_Shawn

            I’ve been using Opera for many years, son. There’s a good chance that I was using Opera before you were even born.

            Knowing exact release dates was never an issue before, because Opera 12 and earlier offered important features like Linux support and real bookmarks by default. We didn’t have to inquire about when such basic and essential functionality would be ready; it was already there.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I use Opers since version 3.50 and i’ve been following its development since then, something around 16 years.

            That’s why i know that during a vry long time the answer for what you asked would be “When It’s Ready”. That’s why i know that they very rarely talked about release dates or even about what would be included on a new release.

            And by the way, back on that time the Opera users would probably less afraid/against changes or different appoaches, they would say “Opera is doing different from other browsers? Opera is trying a new way? Ok, let’s try it at least.”

  • L33t4opera

    Thanks for the update, Marcin :-)

  • Pier O

    Zzz… Otter Browser with only one developer has more progress than Opera

  • Kurt Zon

    Thanks for the update but yall know what we really want ;) …..

    • Marcin Mitek

      Titanfall beta access! :)

      • Kurt Zon

        :)
        that would be nice too!!!!!!!!!!

      • MarkG54321

        Don’t bother, played it and it was very average, and nowhere near worthy of Microsoft’s hype machine.

  • Dark Magician

    Is the first highlight, from my report?
    If it is, you are quick.

    • Marcin Mitek

      It was known earlier :) It just missed the previous Next update (my fault).

  • Jozka Jozin

    …and Recently Closed on Mac version?

    Thx

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      Its in the History menu.

      • Jozka Jozin

        No this is only list of history.

        Recently Closed = list of closed tab, like is in Win version in general menu :)

        • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

          History contains your recently closed tabs. :-) At least, it ought to.

          • Jozka Jozin

            There is only history and one button with reopen last closed tab.

          • ra_ven

            Is there a way to display/add Tab History button next to Download button?

          • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

            No. But you can pin a tab with opera://history That would get you a button for it in the main UI.

          • Nekomajin42

            It’s not a bad idea, but the trash button from O12 would be better.

          • guest6768

            And if you close Opera you have to do the whole procedure all over again… not the best solution imho.

  • newto

    I(we) need this:

    • deded

      What’s that lamp and that down arrow on this picture? I never saw those icons! Is that from the Mac build or an extension?

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      The storage icons are likely to be revised but not in this direction.

      PS: Long-click functionality has huge discoverability problems.

      • newto

        I know you guys are divided on “Bookmarks” or “Speed Dial”
        If the devs choose Speed Dial, fine by me.
        It just need some streamlined function on the address bar.
        I don’t like adding the page, and opening a tab just to drag and drop on the Speed Dial folders that i’ve created.

        • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

          One of the many bookmark extensions can fill this need. They do not, however, work with Speed Dial at this time.
          https://addons.opera.com/search/?query=add+bookmark

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            And don’t forget the better speed dial navigation possibility in the next version (or one of the next).

          • Saskatchewan

            > They do not, however, work with Speed Dial at this time.

            I wonder why the Speed Dial isn’t just a single folder among all bookmarks. That could make life a lot easier.

          • Vux777

            it also need’s to be excluded from Opera internal page restrictions….
            so that extensions can work on SD

            edit: new tab in general (SD, Stash, discover)

          • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

            I had that exact discussion here in the office the other day. ;-)

          • guest6768

            While you discuss Speed Dial, discuss also why clearing browsing data resets the zooming factor in Speed Dial.

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            @disqus_DylbPMbHX2:disqus , @Aeyoun:disqus : But where would extensions enter the scene if it was a folder? I use the SD *mostly* for extensions.

          • Saskatchewan

            For example, all SD extensions could define an internal address, pointing to a full-page view of the extension. When used as a bookmark, it would open this page, but when used as an SD item, Opera would recognise that it’s an extension.
            (It’s just one of possible solutions I came up with after a minute of thinking about it. It might not be the best one.)

            PS I didn’t get a notification that you called me.

          • Shawny_Shawn

            During this discussion, I sure hope that somebody brought up just adding back the typical, traditional bookmark support found in Opera 12. It’s an approach that’s well understood, and it just works.

          • Dovelove

            I agree, It won’t change anything they all go with the sheep and money so give up.

          • Fhury

            >I had that exact discussion here in the office the other day. ;-) <
            Please don't tell me that was the first time this idea was talked about, seems so obvious (like the whole concept of bookmarks)

          • guest6768

            That’s the problem with external stuff. We want things from YOU, not from amateurs/hobbyists.

          • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

            One of those extensions is by Opera Software, if you look carefully.

          • guest6768

            Yes it’s a start. But we need more and better ones.

          • Stve

            I don’t have a problem with good extensions there are some great ones out there.
            Pity the bookmark extensions are so poor if Opera had dropped mouse gestures or speed dial it would not have been a problem.
            Finding the best extension is a time waster, 20 minutes on Chrome before finding a good speed dial ext , I pity any new Firefox fans there must be hundreds to choose from.

          • Stve

            We really need a Bookmark manager the same as all the other browsers.
            I’ve tried all the bookmark extensions all of them are poor.
            Opera’s speed dial is excellent but I can switch to Chrome with a decent bookmarks manager , a good speed dial extension & a data compression proxy extension.
            Hoping you come up with something soon , Opera is always going to be on my PC but it might not be my primary browser.

          • Vux777

            I tested today that proxy extension. Seems to do job good as opera off-road.
            now the only thing left as opera advantage is internal SD and middle mouse click behavior on bookmarks bar menus

          • Shawny_Shawn

            It’s really unbelievable that they don’t just implement real bookmark support in these new versions of Opera.

            I’ve seen so many users ask for real bookmarks again and again and again here. It’s one of the main complaints.

            And it shouldn’t even be that difficult to add! I mean, they already supported this functionality back in Opera 12. They build it once, and it worked, so I’m sure they can just build it again. Every other browser manages to support some form of real bookmarks, too. Clearly it’s not difficult to do.

            Opera, just add back real bookmarks. The users don’t want “extensions” or “new approaches” or anything like that. All that’s wanted is a traditional, real bookmark system that works. It’s a proven concept. So just add it back in. I mean, it was already there and working fine in Opera 12.

        • http://twitter.com/rluik Rafael Luik

          I have the same “problem”.

          I have many Speed Dials and folders/groups so using that button is out of question since the new item will appear in the bottom of the list requiring a lot of dragging until I get to one of my top folders.

          To circumvent this I have to give up what I have in my clipboard (copy the page URL), open the Speed Dial, open the folder, click +, paste and confirm…

          Every time I go through this I think this is not very best experience.

      • Muhammad Ubaid Raza

        What about right click then?

        @disqus_AxqZVT82qS:disqus This is very nice idea.

      • guest6768

        Then put it in the first page after the install…

      • Vux777

        right-click is not reserved (for those particular icons)

      • Shawny_Shawn

        Daniel, what is the exact date that we will be able to download and run a Linux build of the new versions of Opera?

      • Fhury

        No pun intended but bookmarks have a even bigger discoverability problem in the new opera… that almost seems by design

  • J Men

    I remember a time when I was happy to see Opera updates. That was back when Opera supported Linux. Nowadays it’s just sad.

    Saddest thing of all, today I realized that this blog’s comments are garbled and unusable my Opera, the last one that worked on Linux. The Opera blog can’t be used on Opera. So I’m typing this on Chromium. I’ve been using Chromium a lot more lately, I’m not sure whether this is preparing me for an hypothetical Chromium-based Opera or slowly transitioning me to switch to Chromium full time.

    I guess Opera doesn’t care about Linux user, we’re too small a market share for it.

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Very often, when I click mouse wheel on a link, the link is opened in the background twice, i.e. two tabs appear and start loading. Looks like the wheel wants to scroll as I click, so it triggers two clicks instead of one. It’s like when a double-click splits to two clicks if the mouse has moved between them. But even when I am sure that the wheel didn’t turn, it happens too often, in both Next and Dev. Is it just me and my mouse, or does it happen to anyone else as well?

    • Vux777

      I had the same situation about a month ago… I cleaned up my mouse, and everything was fine after that ツ
      …seriously, I’m not kidding

      • Dmitry Kirin

        Wow… didn’t think that’d be that simple…
        Done. Cleaned out lots of dirt, tried the middle click a couple of dozen times, looks good so far. Thanks! :)

        • Marcin Mitek

          I have the same at home, but my Razer mouse is old and screams “Replace me!”, and yes, my scrollwheel is broken :D

          • Dmitry Kirin

            Back in the old days, I was cleaning mouse ball and rollers quite often. When mouses became laser, I decided that laser wouldn’t ever need cleaning, but I obviously forgot about the wheel. :)

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      This does sound like a hardware issue. In many OSes, you will find a click-debug/testing tool for mouse settings. Try clicking there and see if it actually registers to click.

  • Guest

    THIS is the kind of news you should talk about in the main post! :)

  • Darklink88

    you should talk about new hidden features in the main post! :)

    • Vux777

      will that feature/flag preserve user input in text boxes if user accidentally navigates away from page ?

      • Nekomajin42

        It works for me with history navigation, page refresh and open from history actions too.
        But it seems to be really buggy, because after I set the flag back to default (disabled) restarted the browser, and open the same page again, the content was still in the input field. Then I tried on an other page with different URL, and the content was remained, despite of the disabled function.

        • Vux777

          yea, I have similar experience…not sure if my browser sometimes read that input from cache or it is actual feature…and sometimes it doesn’t
          but I know that there is a extensions for that, so I thought it would be cool if it’s a native feature

          • Nekomajin42

            Definitely. A browser is too important nowadays to let the data lost. (That’s why I’d like a confirm exit option too.) It was a cool feature in O12, and I hope, it will also be in the new versions.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      New? :-)

  • Nekomajin42

    How about some kind of “firstrun” screen targeting the average users? An internal page, which contains new features, infos, tips. Something similar to the online version on the download page. It could be an interface between Opera and the average users. It should open after every major updates before the speeddial, and has options to hide forever and hide until next update.

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      There is a first-run screen showing off features already. It is only visible, well, on the first-run. It will look different depending on region, language, platform, and a lot of other variables.
      http://redir.opera.com/www.opera.com/firstrun/

      • Vux777

        I saw that screen yesterday for the first time… usually there is a least one Opera installation per week on my comp
        so…either you just started that page, or it doesn’t work properly

      • Nekomajin42

        I’ve never seen this screen. And it’s pretty puritan.
        I was talking about some shiny, maybe a little bit interactive screen with infos of the latest major release. It should help to explore every single new feature which affects the average users. Introducing new features would be no problem.
        “Hide until next update” should be default with some kind of “hide forever” option, even from the power-user settings.

    • Dmitry Kirin

      I guess more people would be annoyed than educated. Many programs launch welcome pages in browser and release notes in Notepad. Most people close it without reading: inexperienced users, because “oh it did write something, but I closed it, as I don’t understand anything in these computer things anyway.” Geek users, because “there’s probably nothing worthy, as usual.” :) I think a clearer menu, a Metro-like style, and convenient settings pages would be more prominent in users’ education.

      • Nekomajin42

        You may be right, but a plain text release notes and a well-designed, image rich page is not the same. It should target the average users.

    DNA-16109 [Win] Not possible to select second and some more links from Recently Closed, when the list is scrollable
    My report. I am so proud of my self :D

  • smoogler

    As a web developer the most I hate one thing in Opera Next. Option “Inscpect element” is not as good like in old opera. Why? Because if you click on some element on the page with atribute it will link you to the link. If you click on some element on the page it’s not hover in nice clear way (like in old opera). Finally code editing is really bad. I really miss this functions in Opera Next. Please update those things. (Sorry for my poor English :) )

  • nyehel

            Please refrain from using petty insults here. They’re not useful.

            Knowing if and when Linux will be supported by the new versions of Opera is a very relevant discussion topic here.

            Knowing if and when real bookmarks will be supported by the new versions of Opera is a very relevant discussion topic here.

            Your immature insults are not needed, however. Please refrain from engaging in such behavior here.

          • Vux777

            and what Linux, bookmarks and your epic ego tripping got to do with page from original post, on which Magruf replayed confirming that work’s on mobile?

          • Shawny_Shawn

            We are talking about Opera Desktop here, not Opera Mobile. It’s irrelevant if it works in Opera Mobile, because that’s not what’s being discussed here.

            And there really is no excuse why these new versions of Opera don’t support Linux, don’t support real bookmarks, and are still missing so many other basic features that Opera 12 and earlier offered.

            Please avoid your petty insults, and instead focus on the real issues here: Opera 20 is still missing functionality that Opera 12 and earlier had. Opera 20 is suffering from serious regressions, and we need these to be fixed promptly.

            Hi Marcin. Are you still trying to fix damn bug in Opera Developer 21? I still waiting for the new developer version of Opera.

          • Marcin Mitek

            Yup, it’s still ongoing unfortunately.

          • Shawny_Shawn

            What is going on with this bug? Why is it taking so long to fix?

            Is there nobody at Opera with the knowledge and skill to fix it? Is that why it’s taking so long?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            There are bugs that take months or evem years to be fixed, so one week or two is not that long.

          • Vux777

            yea, they are waiting for you to apply for the job, and show them…

          • Shawny_Shawn

            Marcin, there’s just one commenter here using petty insults: Vux777.

            The rest of us are far too focused on the new versions of Opera.

            I, for one, am quite interested in why we still don’t see support for Linux. What is it that’s preventing these new versions of Linux from supporting Opera? Is it a staffing problem?

            It shouldn’t be a technical problem, because Chromium, Blink and V8 all support Linux. Earlier versions of Opera supported Linux. So is it in fact a problem with a lack of qualified software developers?

          • Vux777

            …princess is not an insult, it’s a title
            and fluffy clouds are…well..fluffy clouds

            the rest of “you” are focused to troll about the things that are been discussed millions times here and on old opera blogs/forums.
            …just because you fell from the sky and discovered Disqus and Opera blogs, doesn’t makes you less annoying.
            And your demanding attitude, declaring what is relevant and what’s not (in many comments), just ads to that.

            Shorter version:

            Stop behaving like fanbois (and there are many repulsive ones here), having not anything useful and constructive to say and suggest, distracting threads and only attacking to anyone that makes criticism, requests, complaints and suggestions.

    The Speed Dial button in the toolbar opens the Speed Dial in the current tab, but the new Speed Dial menu item opens a new tab. Why? Is this configurable? I’d prefer it not opening a new tab.

      • yrwenkuw

        Yeah, this is one thing I miss from the Old Opera, almost everything could be Ctrl/Shift clicked.

    • http://twitter.com/rluik Rafael Luik

      Then use the button in the toolbar instead of the menu…

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      They do different things. One open Speed Dial, the other opens a new tab (that happens to show Speed Dial too).

      • yrwenkuw

        Then may I rephrase the question; why do they do different things? Do you think there is some merit to the idea of not opening a new tab?

  • Pesala

    What’s the point of cluttering the Menu with both “New Tab” and “Speed Dial”? They both do the same thing for me.

    • Nekomajin42

      It should be in one line. Similar to the zoom in/out functions.

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      They do different things. One open Speed Dial, the other opens a new tab (that happens to show Speed Dial too).

      (I believe branding.)

      • Stve

        And the speed dial happens to be a New Tab.
        They are the same it’s clutter.

    • ricksper

      And you can’t open a new tab from a link in a context menu. You can only create a new tab. Then you have to find it and open it manually.

  • RX-3200

    when we might see more than six icons in addressbar?
    two of the six – eat: speeddial and stash
    four addressbar icons for extensions – not enough

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      You can have more than six extensions on the address bar (browserActions). That limitation was lifted in Opera 17. The exact number of extensions that can be visible at the same time depends on your screen and window width.

      Or did you mean *in* the address field itself (pageActions)?

      • RX-3200

        Yes, writing “in”, I mean “in”,
        and writing “address bar” I did not mean “extensions bar”…
        speeddial and stash buttons are “in” addressbar too – they are two of the six still possible buttons “in” address bar…
        four “in” addressbar icons for extensions – not enough

        please, read the whole post completely before responding to it

        • Operalino

          I’m not sure, if it is necessary to be that harsh…

          He tried to answer your question and assured he got your question right because he obviously noticed that there could be some kind of misunderstanding at his side.

          What do you think:
          Will your harsh reaction make Daniel reading posts “better” or will it lower his motivation to answer any future questions?

          • RX-3200

            if you “I’m not sure” – do not flood here
            we are talking here about Opera 20, not about me, not about Daniel, and not about limitations of Opera 17 …
            so the question was about limitations of Opera 20

            and yes, I believe that Daniel will read the posts more carefully, as more adequate than you
            and I believe that he will answer the question about the Opera 20 here, in spite of your flood

          • Operalino

            I didn’t want to offend you…
            Was just my point of view. Sorry for “flooding”.

          • Shawny_Shawn

            RX-3200 is not being “harsh”. And Daniel shouldn’t have to be “motivated” to answer questions here. He’s an employee of Opera, for crying out loud. It’s his job and duty to answer our questions! Something would be seriously wrong if he wasn’t answering them.

      • x a

        Slightly off-topic:
        Still hotkeys (”command“) – at least those supposed to be launching browserActions – stop working, if you hide the respective browser action icon. That’s a pity, because it spoils your effort to save some place on the extension bar.

  • Dave

    My Next version keeps rebooting from time to time without any notice in all kind of pages (outlook, feedly, forums, blogs…)

    Also now I discovered that the pop-up blocker is not working properly.
    There are some pop-ups that have music, the music keeps playing while the pop-up has been blocked (Normally happens in TPB)

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      Regarding these pop-ups, could you provide an example?

      I assume you meant The Pirate Bay, but I could not find anything like that there. Only got one pop-up ad, and it had no sound.

      • Dave

        Yes, I’m referring to ThePirateBay.

        On the previous versions of Opera Next, that pop-up usually appeared on a new tab; but recently it gets blocked and randomly some music starts playing from Opera. (I detected that by going to the sound mixer in the windows tray)

        And yes, not all got music.

        I’m not getting any pop-up now, so I can’t take any Screen shot. I’ll try to catch one if happens again.

      • dqdb

        Try Ctrl+click on links in Disqus user comments. Some of them opens perfectly, some of them is captured by the popup blocker, some of them don’t react at all. Right click and Open in new tab works always.

      • Dmitry Kirin

        The popup on TPB is controlled by the cookie tpbpop. It normally fires each 12 hours, going by its expiry settings, and launches a background tab. Maybe that is the reason that Opera does not block it? I know a site which opens its copy in a background tab, and in the original one, redirects to an advertising page. This is not captured by the popup blocker either.

  • Noplacetorun

    Besides issues with bookmarks and Stash bar I’ve mentioned before in this comment section, now that I’ve used opera next for a while, I have some suggestions (it’s mostly basically classic opera features):
    1. An ability to set an automatic download to certain folders for certain file types.
    2. An ability to force opera to use only RAM for cache/disable HDD caching.
    3. An ability to use custom dictionaries for spell checking, in order to force spell check for two different languages. Or just enable multiple dictionaries for spell checking.

    (issue) I’ve faced it some times, but I have no idea what causes it. Another Google link at speed dial tab appears randomly. I already have one link to Google at my speed dial, but sometimes I find another one appearing randomly at the end of the list. It’s not a critical issue by any means but it’s somewhat annoying to say the least.

  • Anton Chelnokov

    Synck still not works with proxy.
    I don`t know if it wirks without…

  • cgebhard

    I just discovered that it is possible to open the last closed tab by right clicking the free space in the tab bar and selecting “Open last closed tab…” in the context menu.
    (maybe that is not new for others)

    Couldn’t you put a submenu there that unfolds when hovering the “open last tabs” with a list of the last…say 5 or 10 entries? Wouldn’t that meet some requests for easier access to those tabs, without “messing” with the UI design.

    Especially when keeping the 1px line over the tabs it is super quick to push the mouse to the top of the screen and right klick.

  • guest6768

    Request: When clicking on Stash, the cursor should go automatically to the search textfield (like in History). This speeds up immensely the finding process when having a lot of items.

    P.S. That is at least a measure until you provide more customization options for the Stash, filtering, sorting, grouping, resizing etc., cause in its current form Stash is pretty useless when you have a lot of items in it.

  • justSQL

    What’s the main reason in both Chrome and Opera to NOT include the time / date elements in Html5? Adding that feature would mean using less JavaScript. Not like JavaScript is bad but using the built in html5 one just sounds better.

    • mathman

      You’re talking about an input tag with type date? or datetime? I just tried Opera 20 Next with a form that I have that uses an input tag with datetime-local and it works OK, not as well as Opera 12.16 (in my opinion) but it did work (although neither of them recognized my specified initial value and started with the default value).

      • justSQL

        http://html5test.com

        input type=datetime Not supported, i believe it’s the same with Chrome.

        • mathman

          that’s intriguing – datetime not supported but datetime-local is??? Would love to hear Opera’s and/or Chrome’s reason for that happening… ;)

  • bertew

    So many improvements in a bild ! How did u manage it ? I dont get it ! Basic functions such as bookmarks , smooth scrolling , usable download manager , costumizeable mouse gestures are still missing . Without them ur browser is a big big ………………….. So if u cant write a simple code for these functions then why dont u just steal them using copy-paste ? Why do u think people need another cromium , a duller one ???

    Please adding the ability to change home page and the opera://bookmark (as it is in Chrome)

    • https://www.aeyoun.com/ Daniel Aleksandersen

      You can change the home page already from Settings.

      • guest6768

        I think we can agree that this contradicts to your “user discoverability” arguments you call upon for other sane requests.

        • Dmitry Kirin

          Er… what’s wrong with discoverability of the startpage setting in Settings? Seems like quite a logical place for it.

          • guest6768

            thunder13 is a user. And he didn’t find it. User discoverability… Zero.

            Apart from that the steps you have to do for such a simple thing are ridiculous. And Settings should be renamed to Preferences. Settings sounds too tech. If it was Preferences maybe he would have found it more easily.

          • x a

            ad 1.: Choosing a specific site as a startup/home page is a task, an average user does hardly do more than a couple of times in his browser installation’s lifetime. So I regard a “set as home page” context menu item superfluous that – worse – makes it unnecessarily harder to find more often used items in that menu. (Same goes for the ”Use image as theme“ context menu item for images, btw.)

            An icon wouldn’t be worth the screen real estate it would be stealing for the same reason.

          • guest6768

            Imagine a house icon next to the reload icon. First click on it opens a text field and prompts you entering a homepage address. Clicking on it leads you to the homepage. Right-clicking on it shows the current home address which is editable.

            Problem solved. And any “thunder13″ has found it immediately and is happy.

          • blackcoder

            That is definitely not easier to use as the user would need to know that he can right click on it. A tool-tip, which says that you can right click on that icon is also not state of the art.

          • guest6768

            Ok and it was easier for him to find it the other way… clearly. Very clearly indeed.

            And if there was a house icon there, he wouldn’t try clicking on it because it would have been the only relevant thing for his need… ok

          • x a

            Consider you want to adapt any application the way you prefer. Shouldn’t it be a no-brainer to browse through the application’s Preferences aka Settings section for that?

            I always thought, that general approach would easily be apprehensible for any new computer user.

          • guest6768

            No, because that way we should all compile the source code for our specific needs.
            I don’t want any menus, any tabs, no right clicks. Where is that in the settings?

          • x a

            I don’t want any menus, any tabs, no right clicks. Where is that in the settings? I want it in the settings.

            So you admit and agree, that – after unsuccessfully examining switches and context menus – it is a natural urge to look for options in an app’s preferences screen.

          • guest6768

            Apple users and designers would surely tend to think different than you. And the whole new approach/concept of Opera is much much closer to that, if not 100%. If you don’t understand that, I can’t help you, go read some software and hardware designing concepts from Apple, or test their products.

          • x a

            Possibly.

            I don’t need any help with the homepage thx, go to those links and help whoever needs it. Also if you have a suggestion to make for improving user experience and discoverability, be my kind.

          • Vux777

            You missing the point again
            I wasn’t trying to help you

          • guest6768

            if you have a suggestion to make for improving user experience and discoverability, be my kind.

          • Vux777

            I do…it stays this way
            if someone wants that button, let him…but with SD, stash, bookmarks bar and other features…
            making home page seems waste of time/resources/space…whatever

          • guest6768

            So you are not seeing any problems of discoverability. Because people usually want a browser that can do stuff, people are not expecting by default to go to a page with extensions and search for a feature so simple. Fine by me.

          • Vux777

            it is unnecessary feature…
            there are many ways to improve user exp.
            home button is not one of them
            what is the purpose of it?
            search page (google, duckduckgo)?
            news portal?..some local page?

          • Dmitry Kirin

            Could be an intranet portal welcome page.

          • Dmitry Kirin

            Yes, “right click and set as home page” is indeed perfectly logical. Once or twice. After that, it just sits there and occupies the space. On the other hand, it’s no farther than the second option on the Settings page. Fast search also finds it at once, at least here where I use Opera in my native language.

          • http://www.lalaurette.com.ar/ Sebastián Lalaurette

            It’s funny how you use the word “Logical” right after what must be the biggest fallacy formulated in this blog.

      • thunder13

        EN:
        ok, but the possibility of setting your home page is only when you start the browser, and where the possibility of continuing the previous session and the possibility of setting your page by clicking on the plus on the tab bar ? And how to run your homepage if there are several tabs and do not want to be this close ? A home page under the icon on the toolbar is currently Opera SpeedDial how to change it because I see the option Strait . About this home page I mean.

        Second thing , if you already can not change that I want to strip search in this site disappeared , how to do?

        The third issue , most recently viewed and closed hand, where there is a possibility to restore them (except opera : history and dubious rozzerzeniami ) – where is the basket at the end of the tab bar , like in the old Opera House . how to do that you can not postulate that the addition of the phrase opera : bookmarks on a similar pattern in Chrome .

        The fourth case , you can add the ability to dim the light rendered fonts. Unfortunately my extension ( in your library ) is not perfect and removes some pages have text formatting ( the exact effect of spaciousness text ) .

        PL:
        ok, ale możliwośc ustawienia swojej strony startowej jest tylko podczas uruchomienia przeglądarki, a gdzie możliwosć kontynuowania poprzedniej sesji i możliwośc ustawienia swojej strony po kliknięciu na plus na pasku kart? A jak uruchomić swoją stronę domową jeżeli jest kilka zakładek i nie chce się tego zamykać? A strona domowa pod ikonką na pasku jest obecnie Opera SpeedDial, jak to zmienić bo ninie widzę opcji. O tą stronę startową mi chodzi.

        Druga sprawa, jeżeli już tego zmienić nie można to chcę aby pasek wyszukania na tejże stronie zniknął, jak to zrobić?

        Trzecia sprawa, ostatnio przeglądane i zamkniete strony, gdzie jest możliwośc ich przywrócenia (poza opera:history i wątpliwymi rozzerzeniami) – gdzie jest kosz na kocu paska kart, jak w starej Operze. jak tego zrobić nie mozna to postuluję o dodanie frazy opera:bookmarks na wzór podobnej w Chrome.

        Czwarta sprawa, można dodać możliwość lekkiego przyciemnienia renderowanych czcionek. Niestety moje rozszerzenie (w Waszej bibliotece) nie jest idealne i usuwa na niektórych stronach formatowanie tekstu (dokładnie to efekt przestrzenności tekstu).

    interest on opera next for linux slowly fades away.
    Is there still work going on?

    • Shawny_Shawn

      This is a very good question. We need some real answers from Opera about exactly when Linux will be supported. All we hear is “not yet” or “soon” or “sometime” or “we’re working on it”, but those are far too vague to be useful.

      • rafael

        I think that Linux users have lost interest. Everyone has migrated away probably to chrome/chromium and to migrate back opera would have to be more awesome than it currently is(I’m using it on windows sometimes, I wouldn’t go back to opera to be honest).

        This of course is a provocation to the opera devs: Make it great, some time!

  • LoverOfLife

    I’ve asked also in previous update: When i try to share something on facebook, the page goes up to the first post (on top), not where i was. Very annoying! Please try it for yourself. Is this a bug and will be fixed ?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Not happening here.

      • Shawny_Shawn

        Just because it isn’t happening for you it does not mean that it isn’t happening for LoverOfLife, too. Clearly it is a problem for him or her, because otherwise he or she would not be mentioning it here!

        I would be glad to test it, but I’m blocked by the biggest bug of all in these new versions of Opera: no support for Linux!

        This is a significant bug that the Opera devs need to get fixed. Linux support was working fine in Opera 12. Since it’s still not working as of Opera 20, it’s a huge regression that should be fixed right away.

      • Dmitry Kirin

    http://i.imgur.com/M0f2y5J.png

    MailPile have demo of local mail client made in HTML5, but they are focusing on privacy (encryption).

    It could be easily added into Opera builds, independently of Blink stream (just like SD is)

    • guest6768

      Yes that is what I’ve been also requesting in my previous post here: http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2014/02/opera-next-for-the-cognoscenti/#comment-1230874722 Quoting again:

      * Make the M2 mail client integratable to the browser as a separate add-on only for those that want it. It could be a nice icon next to the Discovery. Think about how awesome that would be. I know you liked it, now go start working on it. (sugar please)

      P.S. Make the icon and the text a bit smaller to match with the others, will you?

    • ayespy

      Everyone knows my position on mail. Not having a client built in to my browser, where I can access web and mail at the same time, makes me crazy.

      I don’t know for sure whether you could implement MAPI in an HTML5 client – and that is an essential part of the equation. It took forever to get true MAPI in the O12 M2 client, but they finally did it – then the BROKE it in the standalone client, which still pisses me off beyond words, and seem to refuse to do anything to make it right.

      But, yeah. I don’t think an integrated mail client should be simply ruled out as “too much trouble” or something.

      SOMEONE has to be a true internet suite again someday. Why not Opera? Seems like no one else is ever going to do it.

    • Nekomajin42

      +1

      It can work this way. OR! Opera can give us a “startpage API” to be able to add pages, and encourage the MailPipe devs to wrap it into an extension. It would be awesome.

    • guest6768

      Someone has already developed an integrated POP3/IMAP/SMTP mail client for Firefox which looks really nice and very very tempting for me to switch to it permanently. What are you waiting for Opera? To be left behind for ever?
