Opera Developer 24 updated to 24.0.1558.21

Today, we released an update for Opera Developer 24, bringing the stream up to version 24.0.1558.21. We’re still developing our new way of previewing tabs. In this version, we decided to disable previews in HiDPI mode. There are some rough edges which must be perfected before it is ready to go. Check out our changelog to see what we’ve been up to.

    Wow, still no Next build? :/ Well, better late than never!

    • NoName

      Happy birthday anyway :)

    • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

      Although it’s still in dev stream, technically this is a beta build. So: Happy Birthday! ;)

      • SQL

        But I use Next for my daily browsing D: Was hoping to get my hands on this build today :/

        • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

          You have to be more precise next year then :P

  • Dave-H

    All still too big on screen!
    :-(

  • http://toxprox.tumblr.com/ Eric

    The tab previews are too big, I tried them for a while, trying to set them to a delay of ~3000ms but just didn’t like how it demanded all attention, for a preview it shouldn’t obstruct and be 2ndary, as they are now the “previews” are a total context/tab switch since they demand 100% attention in a tab.

    • oic

      I don’t like the preview taking up the entire screen. Make it kinda pointless feature. Its just like clicking a new tab. They s hould scrap it if t hey couldn’t bring back the small previews

    • Piotr Karol Marek Żółtowski

      Visual Tabs from Opera 12? Who wants this? Not fanboy’s of ChrOpera.

  • lmkko

    A Chrome extension I use, Chrome EQ: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/audio-eq/lfafdlnjaliaghpjdajmlcnnblkgcefh

    Will not work in Opera, but works in Chrome and Chomium. It is an EQ for HTML5 audio. Is this because of some dependencies they add? If so, what are they and how can I add them

    Thanks

    P.S.

    When will we be able to remove search engines and be able to set the default?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Note that not all chrome extensions will work on Opera.

  • Inquisitor

    I see no change. Everything is still enlarged to 125%.

    • Vitaly
      • Dave-H

        Thanks, but with respect that isn’t the answer, it should be correct at 100% setting!

        • Vitaly

          You can try to change default text-size in Windows: Control PanelAppearance and PersonalizationDisplay

          • Dave-H

            If I do that every other program I have will then look wrong!
            The hidpi setting in opera://flags was removed, which is what has caused the problem!
            Firefox has a similar issue, but there is a configuration setting you can change to fix it, there is no equivalent option in Opera at the moment.

          • Arjan van Leeuwen

            Can you try starting Opera with command-line flag ‘–alt-high-dpi-setting=96’?

          • Dave-H

            Thanks for the suggestion, but I tried that and it seemed to make no difference at all I’m afraid!
            :-(

    • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

      There’s a flag in Opera Next 24 to switch HiDPI off ;)

      • Dave-H

        Where exactly?
        The only flags that refer to HiDPI that I can see relate only to tab previews and plugins.
        If there is one that turns the whole thing off I’d love to know its address!

        • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

          opera://flags/#enable-alt-high-dpi
          But as said, in Opera Next (not in dev)

          • Dave-H

            Ah thanks of course.
            I’m getting confused because at the moment they’re both version 24!
            I wish they wouldn’t do that.
            :-D

  • myxelloss

    Hi all! Congratulations for your good work :)

    I have two comments that I hope they are useful:
    1. There is an issue with the Blink based browser that does not prompt for the client certificate when a page requires authentication. Instead, it keeps loading the page forever but nothing happens. ¿Are you planning to solve this?

    2. Maybe I don’t know how to do it, but ¿is there a way to stop a download after you started it? At least, I cannot find the way to do it (maybe a stop button below the resume one would be appreciated).

    Thank you for your work!

    • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

      atm you have to click “Ver más” to stop and/or delete it.

      • myxelloss

        Oh thanks. Good to know but, still, I think it would be a good idea to provide a method to stop a download without entering in the download tab.

        • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

          Totally agreed. I requested this functionality internally already (via context menu).
          Let’s see what’s gonna happen ;)

    • ABDX

      add to that the ability to open the file without saving it.

    • Wando Schneider

      On Chrome the prompt for the client certificate works, but on opera dev don’t works, and hang like you say.

    • Arjan van Leeuwen

      Can you give an example of a URL where it hangs? Our internal sites have a client certificate warning and HTTP authentication, and I get both the client certificate and the authentication prompt.

      • myxelloss

        Of course. These examples involve authenticating in a institutional page of the Spanish Government. They use a client certificate of the authority “FNMT” to authenticate. The CA certificate needs to be installed in the browser too.
        URLs are:

        https://sede.seg-social.gob.es/Sede_1/ServiciosenLinea/Ciudadanos/index.htm?ssUserText=231443 (click on “acceso al servicio”)

        and

        https://sede.educacion.gob.es/tramite/login/inicio.jjsp?idConvocatoria=354 (click on “Iniciar sesión con certificado”)

        These are two examples, but I could not make the authentication work on any institutional site because the authentication prompt is not shown.

      • Daniel Knoppel

        Same experience as myxelloss, with a different site (our own). Opera 25.0.1597.0 hangs (loading page forever) instead of displaying the prompt for a client certificate. Chrome works OK (client cert prompt, page loads after selecting my cert).

        I’m still stuck on the pre-Blink Opera until this is resolved… would be happy to test something. In case it matters, the site is hosted with apache and the certificate is demanded using the “SSLVerifyClient require” configuration option.

        • Arjan van Leeuwen

          Sorry, I misunderstood. This is a known bug, DNA-7353.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

    Does anyone else have flash video stutter every now and then but sound working fine? This stutter makes me want to kill myself. This started happening since I moved to Win 8.1…

    • Lacedaemon

      Happens to me as well (Win7-64bit) with also audio stuttering in videos and when listening to music with an external program running in the background (foobar, VLC) while browsing the internet. Too much CPU cycles? Continuous I/O access? HW acceleration messing up the audio?

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

        That sounds like a different issue. Sound always keeps working fine but video stutters for about 1 second. I’ve seen many people have this problem but no solutions.

  • Guest

    Please give us 32-bit linux version.

  • 153136

    why thats not next opera?
    i use next opera as my main browser. and im waiting for 24 update 2 weeks…
    when is update for next?????

    • Leonardo Gomes

      When it’s ready for it.

    • https://christoph142.wordpress.com/ Christoph142

      Streams will only be passed on to next one when they are deemed stable enough for it.
      If there’s a serious issue, it’ll stay in its channel until it’s fixed.

  • Golin

    While the requests of the users arent answered these guys are going their way http://otter-browser.org/

    • Wolf-2

      Again…. -.- I am one of “the users” and my request was answered. Stop talking for me, I am old enough to talk for myself.

    • András Ács

      A working browser, backed by a dedicated team which is also an active part of the core web technology community, versus a ~two-man project hacking away on github.. um, no, thanks.

      • Dave-H

        I think you’re being a bit too dismissive of the Otter project.
        I looked at the latest version out of interest, and I must say I was surprised and impressed just how capable it was after a relatively short time.
        Obviously it will never have the level of support that Opera has, and people’s pet projects like that can be abandoned without any warning at any time, but give the guys credit for at least trying to keep the principles of the old Opera alive!

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Thanks for the update! It’s interesting if I’m going to miss tab previews while they are not there in HiDPI. I’ll write if I do.

    In the meantime, I was thinking about the exit confirmation feature and thought there could be even a greater thing: restoring Youtube video playback positions when such a tab is restored, so that users would not have to search where they stopped last time. How do you think, is it technically possible with Youtube? It could be a killer feature alongside the lazy loading. ;)

    • taneli

      Youtube already offers that for the longer videos (something around 20min+ or so). I doubt the devs want to do much of any site-specific features.

      • Dmitry Kirin

        I didn’t know that, thanks. Do I have to activate that behaviour somehow, by logging in to G+, for example?

        • taneli

          Yes, i think you need to be logged in for it to remember it as a “watched video” on youtube’s side.

    • Marcin Mitek

      But you can enable the flag and have it in HiDPI. We weren’t happy with the performance, some HiDPI devices are (surprisingly) underpowered laptops, or I should say ultrabooks.

      • SQL

        Will you still try to stabilize the build in Dev or should we be expecting it to land on Next ?

  • ayespy

    OK – I never had HiDPI set (at least not on purpose) but Opera must be mistakenly detecting my setup as HiDPI, because my tab previews are gone.

    • Dmitry Kirin

      Same here. I guess Opera gets that from Windows font scaling being not equal to 100%.

      • ayespy

        I guess my Windows 8.1 display size is “medium” (125%) because on this 24-inch 16:9 display set to max res (1920×1080), if I set it to 100%, everything becomes microscopic.

    • Dave-H

      It’s the same for me because I’m set to 120DPI in the Windows XP Display Properties.
      I need it set like that for all my other programs, but it’s making Opera display wrongly.
      We need a setting, however hidden, to override the detection and force HiDPI off again!

  • Alexander

    Please allow us to kill Discover already. Also, setting a default search engine, other than the default ones. Oh, what am I saying, I’m not giving up Chrome anyway, I need some apps. But at least you’re trying.

    • Vorpal

      Maybe not kill but allow us to subscribe custom rss feeds and display it there. It will be nice.

      • Predrag

        Opera don’t support RSS.

        • Vorpal

          I know but why not?
          I can’t use traditional rss clients because it is not comfortable enough for me. But I also think I want to use Discover if it allow me to discover my own internet instead of feeds by some guys from Opera.

        • Khairul Skmt

          Actually Opera support it on early edition… before chropera version!

    • http://toxprox.tumblr.com/ Eric

      Instead of killing it they should just rename it to “News Stories” and allow us to add our own RSS feeds to it so its not completely useless like it is right now :P

  • myxelloss

    I have another suggestion about the user interface. When a page opens a secondary window, as shown in the picture, I think it makes no sense to show the download button and the ones generated by the addons (like adblock, in my case), but only the address bar. I think it is better to make the user interface more clear.

    • eXzentrik

      Opera should (re)implement an option to open all pop-ups as tabs.

    • http://toxprox.tumblr.com/ Eric

      This isn’t a good idea in all cases, the extension I make SHOULD be in those popup windows since it generates the passwords you use for that login field.

      PS Opera devs, your chrome.tabs.query() object parameter is bugged/inconsistent with chrome’s API, and messes up on these popup pages requesting the current active tab when sub-windows like the console are open.

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

      What if I need to unblock an ad in a popup that’s just opened because I want to download something? There are pages that only let you download if you have seen the ad, even clicked on it.

      The fact that a window was opened as a popup says nothing about the functions that you might want or need to apply to it. They’re like any other window in that sense.

  • Leonardo Gomes

    New flag:

    Enable Tab Preview in HiDPI mode.
    Will turn on Tab Preview when running in HiDPI mode.

    • taneli

      It’s nice that you always dig up these.

      Just a suggestion though, you could add the link to the actual flags “opera://flags/” in your posts. :)

      Seen many complaining about things that are in the flags (also in this thread), and maybe they just don’t know how to get there.

  • Alacran

    Ever since the https fixes 3 releases ago, saved passwords don’t appear on some webpages.
    When deleting the password in password manager and browsing to the page, entering the password does not trigger Opera’s “do you want to save this password” dialog.
    The bug is still present in this release, seems to me this can’t be a Next build until it is solved.
    It also seems to be a regression from a couple of months back, the same bug was introduced but fixed some weeks later.

  • Vorpal

    I just think about extension bar. What if you made it in the way of windows tray? Most needed icons shows up on the bar, other which used rarely — is on the pop-up place behind the button (with sort by drag & drop of course). Same way now also work the menu on google.com.

  • Niyawa

    Thanks for the update.

    Waiting for Developer 25 on Windows with 64-bit build (hopefully).

  • FoxkidMCF .

    Still waiting for opera sync.

    • Jonathan Aanesen

      For now sync only works for speed dial. But sync for bookmarks and everything else is highly in progress :)

      • escruting

        Highly in progress meaning highly experimental and in a very undeveloped state or highly in progress meaning being prioritised and being worked on extensively by Opera and ready to go public in the next 3 months?

        The first (and only?) version of Opera Link appeared last september/october.

        • Jonathan Aanesen

          I think Opera Sync is coming hand-in-hand with bookmarks as they would need to work together well enough for certain goals to be achieved. As bookmarks is one of the highest priorities at the moment, sync is also a part of that package and is being worked on every day. So it should come something in the next couple of months. I’d guess before Christmas some time.

          • escruting

            Excellent news.

            You should explain this things more on the main post, even with no certainty, but alteast commenting the this you are working on and will be ready ATLEAST in the next 3-6 months. Atleast what you have in mind, not this silence and top secrecy, thats not good guys.

  • YemSalat

    Zoom indication please!!
    Is the current page zoomed? No way to find out without going to menu.

    • Nekomajin43

      Good point!

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Oh yes, please!

    • dqdb

      And implement the new zoom related functions in chrome.tabs API :)

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

      Or pressing “*”.

      • YemSalat

        huh?

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

          Pressing the asterisk key in the numeric keypad unzooms the page. If it was zoomed, you will know. ;)

          • YemSalat

            I don’t have a num pad on my laptop and the “replacement key combo” for it doesn’t work. I can use Ctrl+0 though, but a visual indication would be better then having to use keyboard or go to menu.

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

            Yeah, of course you’re right. I was suggesting a simple workaround, not a real solution. ;)

  • Markus

    Hi,

    thank you for the great browser! But since I switched from Opera 12 to Opera >15 I have a big problem. I lost my profile several times because it is located on C and every time windows crashes it is lost. You can use the chrome switch –user-data-dir=”new-profile-folder” to change Opera’s profile as well but to make it work properly you have to add this switch to every occurrence of opera.exe in the registry. No big deal if you have to do that only once but with every update of Opera I have to do it again.

    I wanted to ask if you could change this process in a more convenient way. Maybe with a redirection file in the local profile on C where you can specify the path to the redirected profile or something like that.

    Thanks and bye

    • Jonathan Aanesen

      If you install Opera as standalone installation (USB) all the profiling and necessary files for Opera will be saved inside the same folder. This way you can save opera wherever you want and even move it around.

      • Markus

        Yes but then you can’t set it as default browser

        • ahoj1234

          @disqus_6u1BtU09wC:disqus and it will get lagy all the time because of space restriction (at least I hope so because Opera from 22 or 23 is so lagy when installed standalone, even with clean standalone install with synchr.).
          – make tab lazy after a while (disabled), but still it takes +- 5sec till elements on page get active
          – searching from address bar (from new tab) time to time (often enough) takes more than 5s too.

          (no matter if HW is on/off).
          occurred on w8.1 x64 and w7 x86 (both different standalone installs).

        • ahoj1234

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            Your computer is broken.

          • ahoj1234

            sure. both of them :D I reinstalled (both of them) because of it. all plugins, drivers etc. were updated.

            I would agree if the problem was only on 1 PC on 1 system. But it’s occurred on 2PCs on 2 kind of different PCs…

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            I have never had this problem here (W7x64) and I use USB installation all the time. Opera is faster than ever.

          • ahoj1234

            same here till some version of Opera 22 (next) or 23 dev. I’m not sure when it has started. But it’s presented in latest Opera next (so in Opera 23 final too) and latest 24 dev (soon 24 Next).

            and as both of us know. Bugs are sometimes hard to reproduce because mostly bug what “are release” are not occurring on all devices.

            No doubt that it’s happening and if I will be really bored I will convince to REC. it and post it somewhere here.

          • Jonathan Aanesen

            I honestly have no idea why it’s so bad for you, but it might be related to your computers if those are low end computers with little ram and slow cpu speed. It is true that the chromium engine takes a little more than it needs, but this shouldn’t make a difference between the standalone version and normal. Only difference between them is where files are saved. So if something is going to make it slower it have to be the storage unit it’s saved onto.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          Of course you can. I do it here.

          • Markus

            Have you an old opera version running? Even with install switches you can’t properly install the standalone version as default browser. Yes you can flag it as default but when I restart the computer the default browser is back to internet explorer.

          • Ralf Brinkmann

            No, not here. I am using Opera as default browser all the time and there is no other “old” Opera installed. I have IE, FF and Chrome installed for testing purposes and for comparing and the computer did never switch back to IE or something else.

          • Jonathan Aanesen

            If it doesn’t work for you, you should always be able to set different programs to open different kind of files etc. This way you can set your computer to manually open all kinds of html files etc with Opera. And this will somewhat give the same result as just clicking “set as default browser”. If your computer doesn’t remember you setting it as default it’s probably something in your computer that’s broken.

          • eXzentrik

            At least under Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64, you can apparently (!) set Opera as the default browser, but you can’t open links from external apps such as Thunderbird or Miranda with it. I have reported this some weeks ago as DNA-21684.

          • eXzentrik

            Oh, okay. Perhaps they’ve fixed it in the meanwhile. Will try it again, as soon as 24 is stable.

    • Lacedaemon

      What if you tried it with junctions?

      • Markus

        You mean symbolic file links? That might be even more awkward

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Why don’t you add it to “launcher.exe”?

      • Markus

        You can’t add launch parameters to .exe files.

        • Dave-H

          Of course you can!
          What other type of file would you add launch parameter switches to?

          • Markus

            are you sure you don’t mean short cuts?

          • Dave-H

            You can add command line switches to shortcuts too of course, but they’re only a way of adding them to the run command of the exe file when it’s invoked by that shortcut.
            You can run an exe file directly with launch parameters by using the “run” box in Windows.

          • Markus

            Yes, you describe the common way to start almost every console application. And if I want to start my browser with a different profile I may specify those switches in this way, yes. But what does it help me with my problem where I have to specify exactly this things in the whole registry after each opera update to make sure that opera is executed as always just with an other profile?

          • Dave-H

            Unfortunately you’re right, it’s no help at all in that situation.
            You can edit the registry entries to add the switch of course, but they will be almost certainly be put back to default every time the browser is updated.
            :-(

          • Markus

            A convenient Box to add some switches and a button to pass the switches to the right registry parameters somewhere in the opera preferences would be already sufficient, I suppose.

          • myoperaexile

            My HKCR registry entries remain the same even after updating stable/developer versions. They continue to point to the launcher.exe in the parent folder and have the same parameters as I’ve given them. It’s still a fudge though.

          • Markus

            The entries remain the same after some minor updates. But according to my observations bigger updates might screw them up. There must have been an update in the past two weeks. Since then I have many loose browser windows around every time an external link (maybe the email client wants to open a link) should be opened. Maybe it also has something to do with the way an update is installed.

            But why do I have to do such hacks to adapt a browser to my needs? ;-) Why does every browser have somewhere a razor edge?

          • Dave-H

            The minor Opera updates are fast incremental updates, and it may well be that they don’t rewrite all the registry entries.
            Major full updates may well do though.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          ????

          Path/launchet.exe –command on the/a shortcut. This is how it should be used.

          • Markus

            Yes, you add the switch to a short cut, that is linking to a program that is executed with the specified switches. But this helps nothing here because the registry uses it’s own path, .exe and switches. Just to add the switch to the short cut on the desktop doesn’t make opera behave as you might intend.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Well, i’ve just did a little test here: I created a shortcut to launcher.exe and added –user-data-dir=”new-profile-folder” to it (on the target field) and it worked fine, Opera showed the “new-profile-folder” as its profile folder. There is no need to mess up with the registry.

          • Markus

            Did you open an external link from, say, Thunderbird, or started something like Battlefield 4 where you have a web page on startup? When I just add such a shortcut of course there is no need for the registry. The registry is needed, when you want these extended browser functionality as well.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Well, if the problem is losing data when the OS crashes (what shouldn’t be something usual), woudn’t be more easy to move all %appdata% location so you’ll won’t lose data on any program?

          • Markus

            In fact the profile data is the only data of importance on C. I have moved all other important data long ago.

            Besides that this solution might be the least elegant way to fix this. I mean, nothing is wrong with my OS, the browser is lacking a feature ;-)

    Any idea why http://www.rainymood.com/ fails to start when using Opera?

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      The page starts here without problems, but there is no sound like in FF or Chrome. W7x64.

      • Awesome

        Yeap, it does start but there is no sound. Works with all other browsers. I am just pointing that out as it might lead to an unknown issue. I hope it helps and that is resolved soon!

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Maybe an unsupported codec being used?

          • Lacedaemon

            .m4a and .ogg format in that page.

        • Guest

          .

      • Lacedaemon

        Working good in O12.17 as well.

    • Lacedaemon

      The codec seems to be AAC (.m4a file) either one seems to not be supported I’ assume.

    Are you aware of the bug (standing for quite some time), that Opera doesn’t seem to fire the event to runtime.onInstalled when the browser starts any more?

    Many should be affected in a way, such that Context-Menu entries from certain (well behaved*) extensions will be missing every session until the extension is manually reloaded.

    * The right™ way for extensions to use (non-changing) context menus is to register them once upon installation and thus from runtime.onInstalled. I’m aware, that quite a few extensions register their context menu every the extension is loaded (so every time Opera starts), but that is wrong™ (– it’s a pity, that your addons-moderators don’t give the authors hints; they should also press more for non-persistent event pages in lieu of resident background pages, btw). These faulty™ extensions still have working context menus despite Opera’a bug.

    Add the option to choose the order of stash items.

    https://mega.co.nz/ is broken in this build for me. It never loads and just shows a cloud logo.

    • Lacedaemon

      Shows fine here, maybe some extension interfering? Have you tried emptying the cache and retrying?

      • http://toxprox.tumblr.com/ Eric

        Ahem, whoops, enabling experimental JS in flags caused it.

      Not only update, but fix it as well. Composing using HTML Formatting is broken as hell and crashes all the time. Plus there are some leftovers there like “Show on bookmarks bar” etc…

      • Leonardo Gomes

        What do you mean by “changing fonts in real time”?

        Changing the font while writing a message don’t crash Opera Mail here.

        • Lacedaemon

          It doesn’t happen all the time, though, I managed to crash it twice already by changing fonts from Tahoma to Times New Roman and back.

          “OPERA-CRASHLOG V1 desktop 1.0 1040 windows

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I wouldn’t bet on any work on Opera Mail on the near future.
      In fact, i wouldn’t bet on something like that at all.

      • Sidney Moraes

        I believe in that too, but I will ask in the same way.

    • Rafael Luik

      Useless comment. Update what? Add/remove/change what?

      • Sidney Moraes

        Fix the bugs (the problem of default program) and.change the interface to something that remembers the new Opera, not the old one.

    • http://syncoriginals.com Sync Originals

      not sure either, mind you, after years with Opera mail and now, having driven Mac 10.10 and migrating Opera mail to Mac Mail, I must say. 110% on the money > new Mac Mail. Migration : Opera to Thunderbird ( a few tools needed ), Thunderbrid ( a few duplicate deles + other extensions ), a bit of a spring clean :); and over to mac mail. :) Enjoy a V fast search

    I don’t get it. Are we supposed to be able to play HTML5 H264 on linux ? not working here. Firefox OK via gstreamer.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Not sure but i think the h264 support wasn’t added in Linux yet. At least i only see they mentioning Windows on the other post.

    • Arjan van Leeuwen

      No, there’s no H264 support on Linux.

      • freechelmi

        thanks, i didn’t think last year that H264 support was important but sadly it is now…. because of people like vimeo and apple etc…

        • Rafael Luik

          Hm, funny Arjan didn’t mention it… But another dev said H.264 support is coming to Linux too after Windows and Mac.

  • Jorton

    Haven’t you guys decided to add new features or not? If no new features, why not move it onto Next stream?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      No new feature will be added, but the ones that were added should be polished before moving to the Next stream as only bugfixing will be done there.

    -Its a long time since the launch of Chromium based Opera but still no way to quickly manage settings/exceptions for Images/JavaScript etc settings

    -Default speed-dial images looks bad between Coast-like speed-dials.

    -For URLs like http://www.abc_example_url.com, Coast-like speed-dial image shows “W”, isn’t it supposed to show “A” (which is first letter of real name of website)?

  • D. Wood

    May 2013, Opera 15 is introduced. 10 versions later, nothing much has changed. The new Opera still is missing features that are present in any major browser (and were present in Opera 12.17).

    From my point of view (as a regular user), they are:

    a ‘Home’ button. I know that there are third party extension for that. But that is not the point;

    a bookmark manager;

    a decent ‘Search Engine’ manager;

    In addition, there are a few features (that I loved in Opera 12.17) that are dearly missing here. For me, they are:

    the ability to hide [+] Speed Dial button;

    the ability to reload all of my Speed Dial thumbnails at once.

    • Vorpal

      “Homepage” button is so 90’s. I really don’t know why it is needed now.
      Opened tabs saves when you close your browser and open it again. And Speed dial is a place for unlimited number of your “homepage” buttons.

      I would do even removed the Speed dial button which is on the left from address bar because we can open SD by clicking on the “Plus” button (“New tab”).

  • taneli

    http://www.lightningmaps.org/realtime?lang=fi this site doesn’t seem to be working on Opera.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What isn’t work? Seems of here.

      • taneli

        Actually it was Adblock blocking it (though i tried with AB off earlier…), Well, no problems then.

  • Lacedaemon

    https://appear.in Is it working with any stream? WebRTC looks disabled in O24.

  • Dave-H

    I’ve just noticed when trying to answer a query from an earlier blog, that Opera Next is now version 24.0.1558.25, and Opera Developer is 24.0.1558.21.
    How come the Next version appears to have a higher version number than the Developer version?
    As if the fact that they’re both version 24 isn’t bad enough, this is now really confusing!
    :-D

    • Leonardo Gomes

      This discussion again? Developer stream will always be a little bit behind when a version is promoted to Next, which will be behind when the version is promoted to Stable.
      This is because the updates should be seen within the streams and not from one stream to another.

      You follow the stream, not the version number.

      • Dave-H

        Sorry, I had obviously forgotten that this had been discussed before!
        It still seems rather illogical to me for the very latest version to have a lower version number than a previous version, even if they are in different streams. It’s still the same product.
        IMO the Developer version should always be declared to be one whole version higher than the Next version, which should be one whole version higher than the Stable version. That’s the way is was for a long time, and all made sense!
        Not any more.
        :-)

        • Arjan van Leeuwen

          This is simply because there hasn’t been a Developer release yet after Opera 24 made it to Next. Any Developer release that shows up now will be 25.

  • taneli

    What i have mentioned earlier, that high CPU usage kills this browser, is just getting worse on every version, now i can’t even get Opera to be the active program anymore if i’m rendering 3D, it just stays there minimized.
    Firefox, Chrome, IE, and Opera 21 still work fine under these circumstances.
