Hi,

It’s our second update today :). This time, we have a new beta build for you. It includes fixes for a high CPU usage issue on macOS and badly rendered checkboxes on Win10.

The changelog is available here.

    You always break the changelog links 😀

    • Ewa

      🙂 fixed 🙂
      Just checking you 😀

    • Mikolaj Boc

      Hello, Hans Hansen. We want to play a game.

      • Hans Hansen

        Nice allusion. 😛

  • Marko Koivuniemi

    If you can do two -you can do three…. Developer is my main browser 😉

  • Steve Hayes

    Does this build have a problem with syncing with one’s Opera account ? I’ve had it installed and logged into my Opera account for several minutes now, and NO syncing has occurred. Running Windows 10 x64

  • DerGerd

    🙂 fixed :)Just checking you 😀

  • xirit64

    So wait a minute… a genious question… if I’m on Windows 7 and those 2 fixes concern only macOS and Windows 10 why should it update on my machine if I’m not affected? Why should it consume my bandwidth for the sake of… nothing? Does not make any sense to me.

    • Hans Hansen

      3,6 MB – so much bandwidth…….. NOT.

      • Andrey

        Why 3.6MB?

        • Hans Hansen

          Excuse me, looked at the stable channel. 🙂
          But 10 MB is not much either. 😛

          • Andrey

            But what changes inside? Several bugs not fixed….

    Today I’m running this beta as I’m finding Opera 48 has problems accessing some sites – Facebook wont load the css file so only displays text, for example. Also there’s a Google cookie that wont delete when clearing browser data – it deletes properly in this beta. When is this version likely to go stable?

  • Ali Etezady

    Why don’t you guys introduce tab stacking like you had in Opera 11? I t is a very useful feature and you have taken so long and don’t seem to have it even in your board of ideas!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Maybe because it had lots of complaints back on that time?

      • novainc

        Maybe as an opt in feature for the huge amount of people constantly asking for it?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Maybe, although I think that tab stacking never really worked. A scrollable tab bar would be a way more efficient.

          • FluffyBoyo

            Yes, give a try to tab bar kinetic mouse scrolling left and right. So we can see the fav icons in full when using 100-200+ open tabs. With kinetic mouse scrolling settings.

      you can try Vivaldi browser it is also from the maker of opera 11 at: http://www.vivaldi.com/

    Blacks in videos are still distorted on Ubuntu, as if watching the screen from an angle! This has been happening for a couple versions now and it isn’t happening in firefox. Here’s a screenshot comparison. Look at the phone screen. https://imgur.com/a/fOlxC

    I find the new screen capture utility too cumbersome to be useful unless what needs to be captured is in the center of the screen and not very large. The utility works the opposite of an efficient capture program; i.e., instead of letting the user define an area, Opera’s defines an area to start with and then forces the user to change all four directions. If the capture is off to one side or another, then something like the Snipping Tool is much easier to use and much faster.

    • xirit64

      That’s because you haven’t tried defining an area (outside that box) yourself 🙂 It works like you want, give it a try.

      • sgrandin

        What do you mean by defining an area outside the box?

        • xirit64

          Drag an area as you would with the snipping tool, it’s not obligatory to move the edges of the predefined box. What I meant is don’t try to put your mouse in the predefined box and try to drag from there as it won’t work. See also the above posts. (Tina’s post)

      You can drag the selection area.

    • Tina

      Hi! It’s not obligatory to change area inside the allocated zone of screen-shot by changing directions. The selection window that appears when you activate snap tool, offers you one of the options for highlighting the required screen area. You can also try to define any other zone simpler – by clicking with the left mouse button to specify the new position and stretch the mouse, highlighting the area you need.

    You add an option to whitelist websites for VPN. For example, I would like to disable it only on Netflix, and maybe Youtube.

    You should allow de user to configure a different search engine for the private browsing.
