Opera 47 enters into the stable build today after undergoing a short development cycle (shorter than our usual 6-week period). Albeit light on major features, this version of Opera comes with a handful of useful improvements. Two of these improvements help assist in convenience: the ability to export all bookmarks and increased capacity for the recently closed tab. Your personal newsfeed received two additional refresh intervals and the user interface gained refined visuals for better readability.
Opera 47

Exportable bookmarks

This stable build provides a choice of exporting all of your bookmarks. Everything from your Speed Dial, bookmarks bar and other folders are neatly listed in a single HTML file. Additionally, the bookmarks pop up – seen when adding a new bookmark or Speed Dial entry – received some fixes to bugs experienced earlier.

Smoother background loading of news

Today’s news cycle comes fast and frequent, and the bombardment of information can be overwhelming not only for yourself but also your browser. To reduce interruptions and save some data usage from the browser, your personal news can now be refreshed at two new intervals of three or six hours.

Longer list of closed tabs

Many of our users had requested an expansion of the capacity for the recently closed tab in the tabs bar. Opera now retains up to 32 closed tabs, up from the original 10, for you to recall at the moment’s notice. This becomes a handy shortcut to your history log. (Tip: You can reopen the most recently closed tab by right-clicking any tab and selecting Reopen Last Closed Tab).

Smoother video playback

Additionally, we have cleaned up some issues relating to videos across different systems. Windows 7 Aero users should no longer see flickering background images when switching between YouTube videos. For macOS adherents, broken auto-played YouTube videos when going to fullscreen were fixed. Everyone should see a smoother video pop-up player in Opera 47.

Quality improvements to the design

We sharpened up the colors and appearances of the interface. To better complement our dark theme, dark favicons (the icons associated with a website) received a touch of lighter color to make them more visible in your bookmarks bar. If you decide to stick with the light theme of Opera, we have cleaned up color contrasting for better readability.

Security and engine update

Opera features a “risky file protection” in order to prevent the most scary file types from being downloaded. Opera 47 has been beefed up with .scf files added to the risky file extensions list (for Windows). Our fine-tuned version of Chromium was updated to version 60.

  • Danial

    Nice.
    Opera is amazing compared to other browsers in terms of speed, features and memory usage.

    • Cryio

      Speed? Eh. Edge 15 is faster still.

      • Frederik

        Probably not on OSX and Linux.

        • Davide Repetto

          Besides, who uses Edge? Really, who does?

  • killaria

    I’ve tried it, and unistalled it, and I’ll continue to use version 42. 42 run videos best.

    • Kornelia

      What problems with videos do you have @killaria:disqus ?

  • Mike

    Can we pleeeeeeaaaaaaase have some way of showing that Opera is the active window when maximised like it used to…

    • I’ve noticed that too, but is this not common for Windows 10? I see no more bold/highlight color on active window in task bar. Not specific to Opera.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      There is a difference in the background when a window is the active one, it seems lighter.

      Opera as the active window: http://imgur.com/r5oGOKE

      Opera is an inactive one: http://imgur.com/kTyFzpv

      And at least on Windows 10 I get the same behavior for all programs so it seems something related to the OS.

      • Mike

        That’s not the window…

        • Leonardo Gomes

          The question was about Opera as a maximized window so it would be the best – and maybe only – way to check if it’s the active window or not.

  • Nekomajin43

    This icon manipulation with the dark theme is still stupid. Icons can be part of the brand, and Opera has no right to change anything in the them. (Btw, usecase: I have a black favicon with a little white area in it, and the colors are not inverted. It is barely visible when the dark theme is activated.) Implement the solution used by Vivaldi, at least as an option!

    The button of the tab menu is misaligned on Win7 since the very first Reborn build. It should be in line with the new tab button.

    The open tabs section of the tab menu still can not be removed or collapsed. Not even in the newest dev build.

    Bookmark import from HTML should be in the BM manager along with the export option.

    This is a shitty version, even for the holidays.

  • Spideymang

    Thanks for the update!! have great day

  • Eugene B.

    Please add an option to the installer to enable|disable desktop / quick launch icon. Optional is better.

  • Cryio

    The Bookmark dropdown menu from the Opera Menu button is still misaligned >_>

    But you fixed the weird borders on the pop out video. Great job there.

    • redfox

      Yes, the menu still needs to move down about -5px.
      But there are more important bugs present in O47.

  • Kirill McCain

    In this version (47.0.2631.39 (PGO), Windows 10 64-bit) I encounter a constant change in the colors of the tiles Speed Dial

    • Steven D.

      Same issue/experience on win7 64 bit.

  • J Sturgis

    And yet, still can’t rearrange extensions on the address bar? 🙁

    • Not yet.

      • Nekomajin43

        Half a year passed since you introduced the new GUI. I assume you did it to make it possible to implement new features. Where are they? The only thing is the dark them, but it is incomplete.

        During this time, you could not merge the sidebars, or implement a drag and drop to the toolbar icons. Really, there is not much to say…

  • Bali505

    Sounds good. Thank you Opera team 🙂

  • Regnas

    It’s amazing how Telegram is almost always hidden in the screenshots..
    But hey, nice update.. 🙂
    Thx..

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Maybe because it’s unchecked by default? 🙂

      • Yes, we tend to showcase the product with default configuration.

      • Regnas

        Of course, the question is why is that? 😉

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Maybe they want to keep only the most used ones showing up?

          • Regnas

            Perhaps, but there are people like me who prefer telegram…. And maybe there are people who use telegram testing Opera at moment, and by not seeing the telegram icon in there they may think it’s not available… The telegram icon should be enable on the screenshots, it would be a nice ad and user grabber… 😉

          • Nekomajin43

            It should not be there at all. Preselecting services is a bad solution. We need general web panels.

          • Regnas

            Web panels are the ideal, but since whatsapp and messenger are already there, then….

          • Nekomajin43

            Then they should be removed and offered only as suggestions. Like when you add a page to the speed dial.

          • Regnas

            Once web panels are in place, sure…….

          • Ari

            People need to stop being idiots and read text too. Where clearly states every messenger supported.

  • redfox

    This version is the most bugged one I have ever seen, sorry. Really not Stable.
    See my post in the previous article from yesterday https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2017/08/opera-beta-47-0-2631-34-release-candidate/#disqus_thread
    Short summary of bugs:
    – still crashes when trying to delete a bookmark from a (sub)folder in the bookmarks bar
    – corrupted drop down menus in Opera opera://flags/
    – some black website favicons are shown as white, in both tabs and bookmarks bar
    – serious UI lagging
    – broken javascript

    Opera 47.0.2631.39 on Win7 x32.

    • Nekomajin43

      Do you use the dark theme? If so, the white favicons are a “”””””””feature””””””””””.

      • redfox

        Yes, I use the dark theme. How to turn off this *feauture*? Can’t see a config entry for it.

      • redfox

        Yes. How to turn the feature off?;-)

        • Nekomajin43

          You know the answer.

          • redfox

            😀

    • Lookso

      – still crashes when trying to delete a bookmark from a (sub)folder in the bookmarks bar
      > fixed in 47.0.2631.55
      – some black website favicons are shown as white, in both tabs and bookmarks bar
      > they are inverted when you change UI to dark mode, because black favicons aren’t viable well on dark background and that is more annoying for most users

      • redfox

        I don’t mind having black icons on dark-grey background. There should be a switch to turn this feature off.

  • Kev87

    Still no customisable mouse gestures, no tab stacking, no customisibility of placement of buttons next to the adress bar, the bookmarks bar etc… When Opera? When?
    The dark theme is still really a joke, only the tab bar and the space where the adress bar is located has a different color when enabling it. Not even the Opera menu, the sidebar, the internal pages like extensions, downloads etc have a black background. That’s not what I call a dark theme.

    The exportable bookmarks feature is another thing. Why did it take you extacly 32 versions since the first Chromium Opera build to implement such a basic feature?
    In terms of speed and memory usage, Opera is one of the better Chromium browser out there, but it terribly lacks any kind of customisation.

    • Nekomajin43

      +1

    • Herr Pietrus

      Right after the Firefox and Chrome.

    • Gustav Ekner

      They think they have wiped out all the power users by now, but NO Opera, we are still here, and we want the power user features BACK, and we REFUSE to switch to Vivaldi!

      • Nekomajin43

        Well, the only thing keeping me at Opera is the horrible GUI of Vivaldi. But since Opera messed up it’s own GUI with Reborn…

        • Gustav Ekner

          If Vivalid would have proper tab stacking I would definitely consider to switch, but the implementation they have today is worse than nothing to me 🙁

          • Nekomajin43

            I agree, but you can turn it off. You are not forced to use tab stacking.

          • Kev87

            What do you find annoying to the Vivaldi implementation? It works fine in my opinion. I made the complete switch to Vivaldi some months ago, because my patience was at the complete bottom with Opera. Still following the blogs here, but my faith in Opera is completely lost, as I don’t see any progress.

          • Gustav Ekner

            The thing with the Opera implementation was that you could expand the stack when you were “working” with that task, and then collapse it when you worked with something else. When they were expanded, the tabs looked and behaved as regular tabs. In Vivaldi, you only have some kind of “preview” mode; every time you want to see them you have to hover over the group (comp. to regular tabs), you will have big thumbnails (comp. to regular tabs), etc etc. (Except for the 2 px tall bars above the tab group…). It’s very ironic, because when you are working with that specific task, you want to be able to quickly access *those* tabs, instead, they are hidden behind *one* tab, and every other tab you don’t care about at that moment is visible. Vivaldi’s “tab stack” feature could as well be called “hide tabs”.

            I know there are several people who find Vivaldi’s tab stacking useful, but Opera’s was much better according to me.

        • Kev87

          The Vivaldi UI is just a matter of taste. I personally like it. Fact is that in Vivaldi, you can customize the UI as you wish and place all the elements where you want them (and if not in the settings, you can mess a bit with the css files 🙂 ), which is not the case at all with Opera. In Vivaldi you can make themes as you wish in every possible color, in Opera we only have dark theme (aka dark tabs) and that’s it. When they announced reborn, I thought they finally were going to make extreme progress compared to the past 30 versions – and I know things take a lot of time to program – but still I’m very disappointed what reborn still is at the moment.

          • Nekomajin43

            It’s not exactly true. You can set four colors, but can not set gradients, and you can not customize the scrollbars and the menus. The problem with themes in Vivaldi is the same with the Reborn UI. They do not fit into the OS design.

  • ArkuS

    Hello all. I have a very serious problem. After upgrading to Opera 47, a window appears as though activates the Opera, then suddenly disappears and all the time the same. Can not turn on I had to go back to the previous version because 47 just did not work for me.
    Please solve the problem.

    • BK

      Hi. Sorry to hear about your problem.

      Can you share some information on your OS version. Do you have extensions installed?

      • ArkuS

        Hi, my system is windows 7 x32. I have a lot of installed extensions, but I only use 3.
        Here are the things I did:I turned off the extension and set the flags by default then I updated to version 47.
        The result – it does not work
        It does not work so I moved the folder of my profile from: C:UsersArkusAppDataRoaming on desktop.
        Opera automatically made a new profile and on new profile Opera 47 works
        Opera has a poor synchronization so for long time between the format I always move the folder with the profile.
        The first time the Opera has updated to version 47, it appeared a message that this profile comes from an older version of the Opera and do not want to work.
        Is it possible to fix this without a new profile? In this profile have everything synchronized and does not cover everything.

        • BK

          It’s hard to tell what from this profile causes errors. Make a backup of your profile. Then move one copy to O46. Removing one by one, extensions, history, cookies, stored passwords, etc, try to get it working in O47.

          Most likely only one of them cause trouble. Having the problem identified, you can narrow down your findings and hopefully move your profile with the data to O47.

          • ArkuS

            Hello again. According to your instructions I tried my profile to work with Opera 47, but it does not work. Maybe you know where it’s at Opera keeps logs of failure and can help determine the problem?

            By the way, this error in the google translator is quite annoying:

    Great update, i love this web browser, and i would like that another options (like Firefox, Chrome and the others) at the market would copu the best features of this great browser (Speed Dial, VPN integrated, no register required and free, turbo mode, etc).

          Hey andek90!
          I tried to reproduce your case i.e. I set up mailto: that refers to mail.google.com. I am able to receive the mail notifications. And at any Opera 47 launch I am not able to get that UAC dialog. The issue referred on formum was, indeed the actual one in January and it was fixed. Then it is interesting of the installation environment at your PC. Could you confirm: Win7 x64, Opera 46 x64 updated to O47.0.2631.39 x64? Do you have admin rights on your Windows account or it is restricted (regular) account?

    opera stable updated and now i have one problem: i have speed dial with lots of sites. the thumbs has their own colors and all great until i updated the browser to this latest build. now, everytime i open one site and open a new tab with the speed dial, all the thumbs change their colours. when i open another tab the colours change again and so on… its annoyn..

  • Yro

    one question: is there an shortcut to open all speed dial sites on tabs? instead of clicking one by one, i would like to have the option to set up an shortcut so i can open all my speeddials sites in tabs..

    • Leonardo Gomes

      There isn’t one.

      • Yro

        oh.. too bad.. that would be great for usability… 🙁
        see.. I donw use bookmarks anymore because the speed dial… this kind of shortcut would increase usability overall.. hope opera devs look at this post and consider it..

        • Chinpok

          Yes it is. Go to Bookmarks management (the heart icon), select Speed Dial and then right click on Select all, once it’s all selected you have to click over one speed dial in particular (doesn’t matter which one) and Open all selected in new tabs (I use Opera in Spanish so I don’t know the exact names in English). Isn’t exactly a shortcut but you won’t have to click one by one. 🙂

      • Sure there is, you can just right click Speed Dial in Bookmarks sidepanel and select open all in new tabs. Same with grouped Speed Dial entries/folders on Start Page.

  • Biohazard

    No sync extensions?????

          It’s a bug.

  • Paranam Kid

    Opera 46 Stable has recently been acting up with the VPN: it is a lot slower, and it often stops Opera from reaching the website, resulting in Opera crashing. And changing to another country server makes no difference.

    Today I upgraded to v. 47, but alas there is no difference.

    I’m surprised there are so few/none comments on the bookmark export feature, it has been one of the most requested features that disappeared after Opera 12. Finally I can easily switch browser to Firefox.

    Also,

    Tab stacking! Tab stacking! Tab stacking!

    • Hector MA

      I never understood why offer something to help those wanting to leave.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        Same here. Maybe it explains why it takes so long for them to implement such feature?

        • Ramsey

          Basic feature, that is. Exporting bookmarks. I actually thought this browser had it (I don’t use Opera, too buggy, though I am hoping they add more features and stop it from crashing so that I can use it again).

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I really don’t see such feature being used for other reason that not moving to another browser although some may say it can be used for backup.

            Anyway, for me bookmarks could have been abandoned a long time ago and replace by a good full text index system so you could easily find (almost) any visited page.

            It’s the feature from Opera Presto that I miss the most in Opera Chromium.

          • Ramsey

            I back up my bookmarks using Google Chrome and export to a file every few months to my hard drive and have them backed up in the cloud as well (syncs between my computer and the cloud right away). I don’t want to lose my bookmarks as I like to remain organized.
            I can also easily move to another browser as you said or restore in case of theft.

          • Vux777

            that would be really really bad
            first that kind of indexing system belongs to history instead of bookmarks system
            second, bookmarks are one of the best browsers features ever made (super small amount of data for saving links and organized in smart way)
            third, parsing text on every visited page, saving it to storage and then searching trough that data while typing into address bar would be huge drowback

          • Leonardo Gomes

            The problem with bookmarks, at least for me, is that you need to decide if the page you are seeing is worth being bookmarked, categorize it and choose where to save it among lots of different folders where that page would fit.
            I would like to be able to go back to (almost) any visited page just by remembering its content, not worrying about if I’ve bookmarked it or not or where I did it.

            In Opera Presto it used to work fine. Far from being perfect but it used to help a lot. M2, the built-in email client had one of its motto based on that feature.

            I guess they tried to do something like that with Stash but things didn’t work well.

          • Nekomajin43

            That’s History.

            The Stash was just dumb bookmarks. Man, what are you talking about?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Stash was something interesting, the problem was that people weren’t quite read for such change/innovation and also it wasn’t really well implemented, there used to be some issues.

            And a bookmark is just a history entry that you want to keep. 🙂

          • But you can access that entry with a goldfish memory, without having to input a matching text search.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Maybe, if the page title matches the content (that you remember). 🙂

          • Nekomajin43

            Yes, the whole point is the you want to keep part.

            And why was the Stash such a big innovation?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Innovation in the sense of changing people’s behavior: most visited pages should go to Speed Dial and Stash would be like a ‘Read it Later’ feature, for pages that you may want to access later but don’t really need to keep for a long time.

            In its beginning, bookmarks were exactly what Speed Dials are today: a way to have quick and easy access to favorite pages.

          • Nekomajin43

            And there are many use cases between these two. I have bookmarked pages that I open once a year or so, but it’s much easier than searching it again. I have folders for comics and movies I want to read/watch. It’s not a read it later list in the sense that I won’t read/watch them in the next days when I have time. But whenever I find something interesting, I just bookmark it, and when I am bored, I can easily go through these lists without having to bash my head about the title or where I found it.

            And no, bookmarks were never the same as speed dials, not for everyone.

          • Nekomajin43

            What you talk about is a completely different feature.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Maybe but it allowed me to spend years without needing to bookmark one single page. And I used to be able to find pages that I had visited before in like 95% of the time.

      • Nekomajin43

        Have you ever though about using this feature for personal backup?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, you could just backup the bookmarks file or use sync.

          • Nekomajin43

            Sync is not an option for a lot of people. Personally, I don’t like to sync my profile. The JSON file on the other hand is not well readable.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            The idea wouldn’t be to read the file but to have a copy of it so you can recover your bookmarks in case of a problem.

          • Nekomajin43

            How about let the user decide what to do?

  • Frederik

    Good update. I like how the icons look sharper and the export bookmark feature is nice since a lot of other browser won’t import them correctly from opera.
    No bugs encountered for me. Works like a clock.

  • Gator5000e

    I just want the (Google) Maps bug fixed. Any page involving maps will grind the browser to a halt. I then have to switch to another browser (FF or Edge) at that point to continue.

      Hi, so you are on win 10? Are you using adblocker?
      Can you provide page example?

  • Great job, guys!
    Could you provide to let the color of the black sidebar change with the default windows taskbar color and trasparency?
    In this way the UI could be more integrate with the OS

    • Nekomajin43

      Or more like use the color of the toolbar…

      • Leonardo Gomes

        I think it should at least follow the theme.

        • Nekomajin43

          Of course. Exactly like the extension sidebar.

        • exactly!

    • Herr Pietrus

      Or the color, but without the transparency.
      Full transparent sidebar wasn’t nice even in Opera <15 skins.

      Black is still an universal color. It looked strange for me at first, but now, aligned with the top edge of the tabs, I really like it.

      • I agree but sometime, switching from a theme to another, I use trasparency and I change the taskbar/action center/start menu color following the main color theme.
        In that case (for example the taskbar is green like the leafs of the background) it could help for heaving a more cute UI

    Outlook.com had a serious problem with Opera 46 and now still in 47. After logging in if page is refreshed Opera open outlook.com in mobile view and there is no way to revert it to web view until restarting Opera. I don’t normally refresh mail page, but Opera does it periodically in background so when I come back to outlook.com after some time I find it in barely usable mobile view.

    • I have https://outlook.live.com/owa/ as a pinned tab, always logged in and open. Do not see this problem or any unusual behavior in Outlook.

  • LoverOfLife

    Is it possible to have Aero to Windows 8.1 ? I see Windows 7 is supported

    • Hans Hansen

      Win 8.1 itself does not support Aero (in contrast to Win 7), so why should Opera support it on Win 8.1?

      • LoverOfLife

        I want transparency on top bar, with native windows buttons (minimize, maximize, close). What do you have against that ? Are you a dev/admin ?

        • Hans Hansen

          No, I am not. You asked for Aero and not for transparency. But now it’s clear. I have nothing against it.

          • LoverOfLife

            Ok, then we agree 🙂

          • Hans Hansen

            But on the other hand… Opera with transparency would not correspond with the native flat design of Win8/10…
            But again, nothing against your suggestion. 🙂

          • shadow118

            a semi transparent blured top bar would actually correspond with windows 10 new fluent design that they are going for

  • Thomas Sawyer

    Opera always crashes/closes when you try to delete a bookmark/folder from a subfolder with a ‘Right click -> Move to Trash’ in the extended bookmarks view (>>) from the bookmarks bar. It works fine in the bookmarks manager window, or if the subfolder is visible in the bookmarks bar.

    Example:
    Crashes: https://ibb.co/gAhopv
    Works: https://ibb.co/knDiNF

    Windows 10
    Opera 47.0.2631.48

    Can anyone confirm this?

    • We have fixed various bookmarks issues in the latest developer build (http://www.opera.com/computer/beta). Once fixes are verified we’ll push them to stable channel as well.

    • redfox

      I have written about this bug many times, since v46 (v45 was OK).
      The O47 changelog is not currently visible, so I cannot check if it has been fixed.
      I can recommend to stay with O45, because fixing all current important bugs will take time. I gues O50 should be ok 🙂 maybe.

    • In what circumstances does it happen? Is it related to for instance video playback?

    • A turkey from Turkey

      Same thing started happening to me today(Aug. 15th).
      Updated to the latest version.
      Every say 10-20 minutes Opera reliably crashes during normal browsing, not even watching videos or anything demanding.
      In both previous version and the current one – 47.0.2631.55
      Win 7 x64

      • A turkey from Turkey

        Looks like it could have been caused by a malware in my case – every time I launched Opera, some unwanted background downloads began (watched connections in TCPview for a while), solved by restarting PC/router. Will scan for malware later, now everything seems fine.

  • Izer0

    OMG, still unusable, Opera from v. 46 is absolutely unusable for advanced users. After 17 years with Opera I migrated to Vivaldi. Better bookmark manager for my 6000+ bookmarks, and – visible tabs separators. Missing only video popup, but I am sure it will be there.

    Guys, who teach you to do UI design? Separators on tabs smaller than icon? Learn something about usability please, to help all of us. “Slick” design can’t overwrite usability.

    Icons on extension bar and sidebar is horrible pixelated, this is something you called “design improvement”? Funny.

    http://www.softpae.com/opera_icons.jpg

    Opera is going down, quickly 🙁 And Opera is dead for advancer users. It’s so sad 🙁

    • Trevor Gough

      I consider myself an advanced user to some degree, and I find Vivaldi to be more sluggish than Opera in terms of loading pages and switching tabs. I like Opera’s UI design just fine, too.

      • Izer0

        Try to use new Opera (with smaller tab separator) with 350 – 400 tabs as I have (lot of forum/posts about windows server problem/fix, some pages about programming, libraries, bootstrap, about 50 tabs of news/posts that I read during the day). Favicons disappear, separator merged with default grey tab icon. UI design like a charm.

        • Trevor Gough

          What? I have no idea what you are saying to me. Thank you, though. 🙂

          • Izer0

            You like new UI, so try to open 350 – 400 tabs and try to navigate through tabs without visible separator between tabs. You does not understand because you never had 300+ tabs opened. 🙂

          • Trevor Gough

            350-400 tabs open at once? That seems very much extreme! Are you saying that Vivaldi and Chrome and whatever browser shows favicons yet with that many tabs open?

            Regardless with that many tabs open, you are bound to run into sluggish performance unless you are forcing the hibernation of background tabs. In that case, you may as well use sessions via an extension like OneTab.

            I cannot see how having that many tabs open at once is very economical or practical on any front.

            Opera seems to run better than other browsers like Vivaldi or Chrome for me with several tabs open. Opera is more responsive in such cases for me. Opera’s tab preview is superior to other browsers, also.

          • Izer0

            Forget it. It is opened but not all loaded at once (maybe 100 – 150 loaded, no problem with 16GB RAM, SSD and –renderer-process-limit=25 switch). But is better for me to have it on tabs bar, it’s easier to use it, no need any OneTab or whenever you use. It is not solution for me to searching often used pages in (slow) bookmarks or elsewhere.

            There was no problem with this amount of tabs before O45 which changed UI of tabs strip.

            Anyway, that’s not important. I respect you are happy with current Opera UI and I hope you respect there is people that need little bit better tabs UI. That’s all. I am not interested on what you think I need to do or how to do it 😉 I and some other advanced users need better tabs separator, that’s all.

          • Trevor Gough

            I respect your opinion, also.
            Which browser does what you say Opera 44 was doing for you?
            I cannot imagine Chrome or Vivaldi doing a good job with that many tabs open.

  • Maarten

    Dear Krystian Kolondra,

    Tell me why did you abandon as from verion 45 with option to choose Windows theme colour(s), so Opera nicely integrates with OS? Cannot understand. The new UI is awful. Horrible. New sidebar has ugly colour which cannot be changed. Makes me get an headache. Why for god’s sake has the (very) good UI design of v44 (which I still use, I won’t upgrade tot the new UGLY Opera) been replaced by (at best) an amateur design?

    Cannot understand. Please explain Opera’s dev team choices for UI changes.

    Have been using Opera since 2004 (paid version) but now I feel really sorry that a once a good product is being destroyed. Why? Please tell me, maybe I am wrong but at least explain to user-base why UI design has changed (for the worse in my humble opinion).

    Regards,
    Maarten

    PS Why not stick to Opera 44 UI design until you have a really much better UI (more modern, more slick on hi-res screens). Read many comment alike from Opera web-browser aficionados, but somehow Opera does not seem to caring about their loyal user base. I cannot understand. Is that what you all you devs have lived up to from the past till now? I cannot imagine. Opera was identical to quality (up through v44) now Opera delivers rubbish. It’s a pity.

    • Nekomajin43

    For some reason Youtube on my macbook pro 2017 is lagging consistently in opera. The problem doesn’t occur in safari but in Opera when you go rewind or fast forward in the video, there will be a lag where a still image is shown but the audio plays normally. it takes like 5 seconds for the video to start playing to catch up to the audio. it’s not in sync and i’m not sure how to fix it using something like magic actions for youtube

    • Hassan Zakai

      also forgot to mention, about two or three times a day the youtube video will flash with a large black screen with a large pause button in the middle. it keeps occuring until you go into full screen mode then exit out of it

      • CCocktail

        I get the same flashing. Also had it in Chrome. You can also scroll down until the video is entirely out of view and scroll back up again to make the flashing go away.

        • Hassan Zakai

          thanks for the tip, i also found that making the video fullscreen then exiting out of it gets rid of it as well

    1. After every restart of my pc, speed dials colors are changing. Why ? Is there any bug ?

    The Vivaldi UI is just a matter of taste. I personally like it. Fact is that in Vivaldi, you can customize the UI as you wish and place all the elements where you want them (and if not in the settings, you can mess a bit with the css files 🙂 ), which is not the case at all with Opera. In Vivaldi you can make themes as you wish in every possible color, in Opera we only have dark theme (aka dark tabs) and that’s it. When they announced reborn, I thought they finally were going to make extreme progress compared to the past 30 versions – and I know things take a lot of time to program – but still I’m very disappointed what reborn still is at the moment.

    • Vivaldi doesn’t have a mobile app with Sync though. Hopefully they can get something going soon
