Opera developer 35.0.2060.0 update

As we are slowly progressing towards the last feature freeze for this year, here’s what we have with this update:

Search hint

For new users, or users that have not used the address bar searches in a while, there will be a hint that they can search using the address bar. This should be a friendly, easily dismissable reminder. Please share your opinions about this improvement.

“Mute me baby” improvements

We are aware that muting tabs was a long-awaited and warmly received feature. However, we also reviewed your critical opinions about the “mute all tabs” button and decided to turn it off for now. Instead, we offer additional context menu options which allow you to mute this tab or mute other tabs. What do you think about this solution?

Simple settings

This feature, hidden behind the flag in the previous developer release, is now available publicly with a few minor changes inspired by your feedback.

Search box

Guess what? For those who actually liked the old-style separate search box, we have added this option in the Windows builds. It can be enabled in the Browser advanced settings, please take a look at the “user interface” section.


Frame color awareness

The flag #frame-color-awareness allows to change the colour of the window titlebar on Windows 10 Threshold 2. The colour of Tab Bar buttons – New Tab and Tab Menu is changed to white as Windows does to its native buttons.

Crash fixes

With today’s build, we have fixed the following crashes:
DNA-46078 – crash when displaying HTML5 notification, and similar, but yet different: DNA-46253 – Windows 10 specific crash, also on notifications
DNA-45915 – Mac crash on unblocked pop-up windows


Chromium has been updated to 48.0.2560.0.
