In today’s Opera developer release, we’ve got a number of new features for you.

Currency converter

Have you ever wondered how much this new gizmo you see on foreign shopping site is in your local value? It’s easy now to answer this question with the new Opera feature – currency converter. Our search popup has been upgraded with an automatic currency converter to the currency matched by your location. Just select the value with currency symbol (e.g. $10, 100 Kč) and check the value in the popup. It’s that easy – no need to search for exchange rate calculators online. We’re currently supporting 32 currencies from the European Central Bank.

cconverter

Known issues: the feature may not work straight away on a clean profile (after the first installation), so please restart the browser to see the feature in action.

Usability improvements: do not annoy me

Sometimes, when you run an application for the first time, everything feels so new that you simply need some time to look around and get familiar with it. We’d like to make this first time experience as user-friendly as possible for our new users. That’s why we have decided to remove or delay displaying some information, pop-outs and hints. We’ve also provided a number of usability enhancements, for example the simplified bookmarks structure or a different logic for showing the sync and tab icons.

The Network Installer for 64-bit Opera

Some time ago we released the 64-bit offline version of Opera for Windows. Since then, we’ve worked hard to make it fully functional and now are able to present the Network Installer for 64-bit builds. This is the well known network installer you already use to install Opera, but this version is smart enough to install the best option for you. In other words, it detects the architecture it’s run on, and installs either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Opera. Moreover, it’s able to upgrade (please don’t confuse with “auto-update”) from the 32-bit to the 64-bit version. After the upgrade, the 32-bit version is removed from the system. Of course it will keep your profile, so your data is protected, and the transition is smooth (you may not even notice it).

For these who don’t want to change their version, we’ve left an option to prevent the transition:

2016-10-24_16h39_39

But please keep in mind that two Operas on the system share the same profile. If you try to uninstall one of them, don’t remove “user data”, or the second Opera will start with the clean profile.

Personalized newsreader

In the latest developer version, you can also get a blue dot notification over the newspaper icon whenever there’s some new content in “My sources”. Discovering new articles works with sources from the catalog as well as the custom web feeds. In settings, you can configure how often the check is going to happen, or disable it completely if you don’t need it.

Personal News notifications

Push messages

With the push messages support, you can take advantage of the so called Push Notifications technique, which allows your website to send notifications to people even if they are not browsing your website at the moment. To find out more, check out the really nice description on the Google Developers blog.

Navigation bar context menu

It’s a small yet useful change: now, you can configure your Speed Dial navigation bar by the context menu. Just right-click the sidebar and configure which menu items you want visible.

Known issues

  • The browser will crash when turning VPN on and off. We’re already working on this.
  • On Windows 10, it will be impossible to set the new Opera developer as default after the 32-bit to 64-bit switch. The workaround for now would be to uninstall the 32-bit version manually first and install the new version only then.

Chromium has been updated to the 55.0.2883.19 version.

  • Кostadin

    I have replaced my 32bit with the 64 bit version. Windows 10 auto reset the default browser to Edge. Upon trying to change it back, Opera Developer cannot be found among the suggestions.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Thanks, we’ll investigate.

    • Marcin Mitek

      This is now tracked as DNA-57738. Thanks 🙂

  • x a

    Thanks for the new developer build.

    Seems Disqus comments load without serious delays again. Nice.

  • Kurt Zon

    Currency converter – this is a great feature for me – thanks..

  • mattho1

    Hi,
    can you consider implementation of “tab behavior configuration”. it will be possible configure “New Tab position”, “Clone Tab Position”, “After Close Tab behavior” ? https://ctrlv.sk/shots/2016/10/25/mdCZ.png

  • Tooltip menus: do you plan to create an extension API for this feature? Currency converter is a cool stuff, but please make this whole thing customizable via extensions.

    Or at least add a “Go” item if an url is selected 🙂

    • Nekomajin43

      Actually, this is a good idea!

      Inline translators could use this feature, because the would be able to get rid of the injected popup buttons. (Not to mention that they don’t work now, because the search popup overflows the area.)

      Link shortener or deshortener extensions could also use this popup.

  • hrh_fourtyseven

    really missed old opera tab stacking !
    I hope opera team bring it back to us.
    tnx for your nice work

  • Eugene B.

    > Chromium has been updated to the 55.0.2883.9 version.
    Opera says 55.0.2883.19, please fix it in your post.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Yeah, a typo. Thanks, already updated 🙂

  • x a

    Currency converter could come handy, I actually like it – you might argue, though, whether it should be an integral part of a browser, that strove to be lean and adhere to a keep-it-simple dogma.

    Anyways, the converter does not detect ” 90 руб ” as something to convert.

    • Bartosz Wiklak

      Thanks for info, it’s a bug. We’re working on that. As for keep-it-simple dogma, as far as this does not clutter the interface I believe it adheres to this.

  • AlkaSetzer

    Opera 42 is shaping up to be a great release, keep up the good work 🙂

  • Broken Hangouts extension fixed?

    • …nope, not fixed. And Hangouts within Gmail is terribly, horribly slow.

      • bwat47

        Does the standalone hangouts site work any better? https://hangouts.google.com/

        • x a

          Standalone web-based Hangouts works fine here, but only as long as the Extension is disabled (otherwise site and extension interact and the combination is broken on the extension’s end).

        • Yup, the site is ok, it’s just the extension that just returns an inactive popup (only the Hangouts logo is there, nothing happens). Worked fine 2 versions ago.

    • Rafał Chłodnicki

      Do you have bug reference?
      Can you point to the extension?

  • MadEddy

    VPN works with no crash for me. What is this wizardry?

    Edit: it crashes sometimes but not always.

  • Vikruntasas

    VPN memory leak and disconnect after closing and reopening the browser still exists.

    Opera Dev 42 x64 latest on Win7 x64

    • BK

      How do you know there is a leak?

      • Vikruntasas

        Just browse or watch a video with VPN enabled. The RAM usage goes trough the roof.

        With VPN disabled = no anomalies.

  • sate5232

    I need disable DirectWrite, in chinese, with DirectWrite enabled, fonts will be ugly.
    New version of Chrome also can not disable this feature, but the Cent browser can disable, so I think you should also be able to do.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I guess it could bring more problems than it would worth the change.

  • Michael A. Puls II

    I like the idea of auto-migration to 64-bit. Super cool.

  • Magnanimous

    Since, stable is version 41, shouldn’t beta be v42 (Chromium 55), and dev be v43 (Chromium 56)?
    Either your version scheming doesn’t make sense, or I’m being a complete idiot.

    • Aneta Reluga

      Stable has been promoted to 41 just today while dev is in 42 for quite a long time. Yes you are right, but we are going to push the versioning one up for both beta and developer later this week. The developer release was sort of overdue already (note that we have TWO releases today) so the version has not been pushed yet.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      My God, again this discussion?

      Beta will be 42 when that version is promoted to beta channel. And there will be a developer 43 when they release it.

      People complicates things too much.

      • Ari

        LOL, it’s the same guy right?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Does it really matters? It’s a kind of discussion that makes no sense and will not lead
          anywhere.

          Just follow the development channel that better fits you and forget that the other ones exist.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          I don’t know. But does it really matters?

          It’s a kind of discussion that makes no sense in my opinion and clearly doesn’t lead to anywhere.

  • Kirby green

    I liked the idea of showing currency converter and I think this popup feature can be used for even more function.(If the additional option could be added by extension, its wonderful.)
    But as the number of buttons increase, I want the configuration for individual button.

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Aneta, thanks for the article and new update, besides some known issues, it seems to be nice, and slick build 😉
    I'm glad to see, that assigning keyboard shortcuts for the extensions finally works (not all key combinations).

    Removed flags: #forced-default-browser-prompt, #power-save-mode-phase2-ui, and speed-dial-search-suggestions.

  • Pierre771

    Congratulations for your work on 64 bits and for the quality of this blog : such a blog should exist for other browsers but currently you are the only one

    • Thanks. Glad you like it. Can you tell what do you value the most in our blog?

      • Pierre771

        You’re welcome ! It’s well presented and there are detailed and clear explanations for each new version. A detail : there are clear installation links at the end of each article

    • Aneta Reluga

      Wow, thanks a lot! We do our best and we are happy to see our efforts are useful!

    • DMCA

      don’t need a blog for “other” browsers ))

  • beBoss

    Still has problem with bloking annoying pop-ups http://arenabg.ch/torrents/

  • Nekomajin43

    Will you further improve the RSS detector popup? The styling is still inconsistent across the addressbar popups (VPN, adblock, RSS, etc). And I still can not see which feed I am suscribed to, if the page has multiple sources.

    • Are you talking about Opera 42 developer? RSS detector dialog is aligned with other popups (adblock etc). Can you share a screenshot? This popup shows what’s on page, doesn’t hint what you are already subscribed to already. So far by design.

      • Nekomajin43

        The problem is not with the alignment of the popup. The title of the bubblepopup has different styleing than the other popups.

        It would be very handy to show if I am already subscribed to a feed. For example, the WordPress engine generates two feeds. One for the posts and one for the comments.

        Also, a link/button would be good to open the news reader from the popup.

        Oh, and what about the RSS icon? 🙂

        • Just to be sure, we’re talking about this popup: http://imgur.com/a/465g9 ?

          • Nekomajin43

            Yes! If you take a look at it, the battery saver and the adblock have bold title, while the VPN and RSS do not. The RSS link hover style appears to be different too.

            Also, the page info popup at the left of the address bar has totally different styles. It would be good to unify these popups.

  • Nekomajin43

    When will you merge the advanced an power user settings?

  • Zin

    Not the kind of changes ppl are asking for but useful for the REALLY small minority of ppl who may use a few of those things.

  • Regnas

    Great stuff, Opera is progressing really well… Now, you just need to add the following feature and I will love you forever: https://forums.opera.com/discussion/1875780/suggestion-quick-way-to-go-to-the-top-of-the-page-/p1

    • Sounds useful 🙂

      • Regnas

        Yeah, I can’t live without it… 🙂

        • Ari

          hmm… why would you want to go to the top and then again to latest position? What would be a valid use case apart from explaining the behaviour?

          • pauloaguia

            Check the date a post was published and then continue reading. This happens to me sometimes, when I start getting a feel that I’m reading something outdated and want to check the publish date which often shows at the top…

            When I first read Regnas message I thought “Why not just hit the Home button on your keyboard?” But then the next page I saw I had to do what I described in the previous paragraph and thought it might not be such a useless feature after all 🙂

          • Ari

            Still too niche-oriented feature IMO.

          • Regnas

            Just try it and you will not want anything else, trust me…. The speed is wonderful, it avoids lots of scrolling to find where you was before, just like in this page, I can go to the top of the page to open the addons page in a new tab and then go back exactly here to finish talk with you in light speed, with no scrolling/finding required… 🙂 How cool is that?

            Opera team please add it…… 🙂

          • Ari

            LOL yeah probably could be because of the use I give you my browsing it doesn’t fit. So maybe you’re right I guess.

          • Regnas

            Really? This feature has millions of use…. For example, while surfing, how many times you need to go to the top of a page to do something (check stuff/badges/notifications/access some site navigation buttons/do some searches/open stuff in a new tab… etc, etc…) and then go back to where you was to continue your stuff…? I do this all the time. But I understand you, when someone never used this feature it doesn’t seems like a big deal, but man, once you start using it, trust me, you’ll be like WOW, how I survived without this thing… 🙂 You just need to try it and you’ll see what I mean….

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Could you list a few examples of pages where someone would need to go to the top to see/do something and then return to where it was?

            Really, my answer for your question would be ‘almost never’.

          • Regnas

            Lol… Almost never? What kind of surfer is you, I’m curious? All the people I know that uses it, they love it…

            Any hardcore surfer/power user can easily see the benefits of it, specially in long pages like this one for example … Please try it and you’ll never look back…. Oh, and read other people comments….

            I still have Yandex installed just because of this…. Once Opera get this stuff in, and I hope they will, there will be no more competition… 🙂

          • Leonardo Gomes

            OK, but what about the examples?

          • Regnas

            I already gave you some examples in your first post, when you asked why someone would need it…

            Have you tried it yet in Yandex?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            You don’t want to give examples of pages where that feature would be useful because there should be none, right?
            At least I can’t think of any page where I would need to keep going to the top and then return back to where I was in a regular basis.

          • Regnas

            Oh man, now I think that you are just trolling… Cheers……. 🙂

          • Leonardo Gomes

            So you are unable to list a couple of sites where your so-called amazing ultimate feature can be useful and I am the one trolling?

          • Regnas

            Lol, u da man….. You love a good chat huh??

            Please JUST READ my other comment where I gave a example of how this can be useful even on THIS PAGE, THIS PAGE, THIS PAGE…. can you read that? THIS PAGE!

            Ok, um abraço, adeus……

          • Leonardo Gomes

            And why someone would need to go back to the top of this page and then return to where it was in a frequent basis?

            OK, maybe to copy something from the post to include in a reply to a comment but it’s not something done in a regular basis.

          • Regnas

            Now you are starting to get the picture…. All that is left is to try Yandex and you’ll be addicted in no time… 😉

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Sorry but I still don’t think it’s something that useful.
            Your example, like I said, isn’t something that would happen on a regular basis to justify adding the feature.

          • Regnas

            You just need to start using it, and only then you’ll feel the power… it’s like everything, you can’t miss something you don’t know…..

            Let me talk about something similar, when Chromium’s based browsers started to appear they implemented this little thing: the ability of select text and drag and drop that text everywhere you want in the browser, in the beginning it doesn’t seemed like a big deal, but later I decided to use Iron and I started using that little feature, and now let me tell you: I WILL NEVER USE A BROWSER WITHOUT THAT FEATURE… People that never used it will never understand, just like you…
            Those little things are the ones that make huge difference between similar products….

            Even half of this feature, which is the ability to go to the top of the page by clicking on the tab is already a huge thing, it’s so fast and save a lot of time, and the ability to go back to where you was is just amazing…..

            I hope you can see that once you start using it.. 🙂

            Cheers…..

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I won’t use something that I really don’t need.

            But I’ve got curious about one thing:
            Let’s say that I use that feature while writing this reply to go to the top of the page but needed to scroll the page to get the info I want. As I’m not on the top of the page, using the feature again would make me return to the top of the page or to where I started?
            I understand that it should always lead me to the top of the page if I’m not on it other wise that feature is bugged. And if it works that way, it’s useless.

            BTW, usually those who keep saying that something is the best thing in the world, that everyone should use/do it, that s/he can’t live without it, are the first ones to stop using/doing what they once called the best thing in the world.

          • Regnas

            Of course it should go to the top of the page, because you just reset your position…

            Now seriously, why don’t you try it? http://browser.yandex.com/
            By try it I mean use it regularly for at least two weeks or more… 😉

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I don’t use because I don’t see that many situations where it would help me.

          • Regnas

            That’s the great advantage of having several features, if someone doesn’t like something, just don’t use it… Me? I don’t use the sidebar at all, but if someone likes it, that’s fine to me… It’s just great to have options… Cheers….

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Opera Presto had lots of features and options and we know how it ended. 🙂

            More features/options means more code, what means more chances of bugs and more chances of the product to become difficult to be kept.

            So any feature should be strongly evaluated before being implemented.

          • Regnas

            The old Opera didn’t end because of it’s features, in fact, most Opera users are requesting those features back…. And yes, if you want your product to stand out between similar products, you’ll need features, yes, stuff that others can’t do…

            By the way, take a look at Vivaldi (a browser for powerusers):https://vivaldi.com/?lang=en It’s coming along quite nicely, lots of nice features, quite tempting actually, too bad it doesn’t have turbo like Opera and Yandex (and Chrome too)… So, no turbo = no go, for me…. 🙂

            Yeah, features is a must…… without it what’s the point????

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Opera Presto needed to be ended because its code became very costly and difficult to maintain due, among other reasons, to its many features and options. Many of those barely used by most users.

            Yes, helpful features are something nice to have but having a feature just for the sake of have it, just to say ‘hey, my browser does this and yours don’t” only bloats the code and increase the chances of bugs.

            That’s why features and options should be evaluated before being implemented.

            I know Vivaldi, have it installed. It’s a browser created aiming Opera Presto users unsatisfied with the new Opera Blink and seems to have conquered some of those users.
            However, I don’t know if it will get that many new users.

          • Regnas

            Lol.. You’re too afraid of bugs, every app has it, I’m a dev on my free time, I know how it works…

            And no, features are not added for the sake of just have it, they are always useful for someone, the devs usually know why they are adding stuff and of course they evaluate the stuff…

            Let’s see how it goes……………… 😉

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I’m not afraid of bugs, I was just stating a fact.

            Features usually are added to try to get new users and keep current ones. 🙂

          • Regnas

            “try to get new users”?
            lol…
            Well, that’s not how I see this, for me, it’s just evolution, you know, things needs to evolve, it can’t be the same all the time…. We are creative creatures after all……… 😉

          • Leonardo Gomes

            For sure things need to evolve. However, it doesn’t chance the fact that most features – and I’m not talking only about browsers and softwares – are added aiming on possible new users.

          • Regnas

            Well, I respect your POV, but in many times it’s not the case… 🙂

        • Leonardo Gomes

          OK, it’s a nice feature but why someone would need to use it?

          • Regnas

            (Answer copied from a similar question)

            Really? This feature has millions of use…. For example, while surfing, how many times you need to go to the top of a page to do something (check stuff/badges/notifications/access some site navigation buttons/do some searches/open stuff in a new tab… etc, etc…) and then go back to where you was to continue your stuff…?

  • Teresa e Junior

    The option to Click to Play flash content is not selectable anymore (I had already noticed this on 42.0.2372.0). The user has to either enable or disable flash completely. EDIT: the options are poorly worded, actually, see my next comment below.

    Also, the option to add personal rules to the adblock has never worked in any version of Opera!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I think ‘click to play’ should be removed or, at least, reevaluated as it seems to be causing much problems.

      • Nekomajin43

        I’d like it to be extended to gifs and videos too, to prevent autoplay.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Such option would be nice. However, it would be even better if pages authors set media to not play automatically on their pages.

          • Nekomajin43

            That must be a utopia…

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Unfortunately.

      • Teresa e Junior

        The option to disable flash is actually Chrome’s right-click menu to play, but in 42.0.2372.0 right-clicking and selecting play did nothing. I had not tested before posting my comment, but now I did, and I’m glad that now it seems to work just as with Chrome! The options are poorly worded, though: the option to right-click and play says “Block sites from running Flash”, while “Click to play” is not selectable at all.

    A little remark : portable Opera dev is still only in 32 bits

    • Юлия

      Oh my. I replaced my Opera x64 with the x86 one without noticing :s I made a hodgepodge out of that installation 🙁

      • Pierre771

        Happy to have done a useful remark 🙂 Will it replace it automatically ?

  • Юлия

    Do you support all currency writing formats? For instance I write:

    two thousand, five hundred and sixty Eur, and sixteen Cents
    as
    2 560,16€

    Note the digit group symbol being a space, and the decimal symbol being a comma. Also the currency sign is placed at the end of the string. Ukraine default: https://i.imgur.com/2YWswyC.png

    Does your algorithm detect it in this case? Also make it too sensitive and it will try to convert 2560px to USD or what not, lol.

    Note: personally I haven’t managed to make it work at all, even with your own example $119.99. That after restarting Opera 3 or 4 times. I don’t know what to say about this feature..

        Currency converter works on Linux for me, but does not on Windows10/64 (using Opera/32).

        • Bartosz Wiklak

          No at all? We found the bug thanks to your previous post, but most examples should work. Linux and Windows implementation is the same but there may be some differences in character formatting and encoding.

          • x a

            I didn’t have the opportunity to test both systems at the same time – so if there is a server side backend involved, it might be coincidence that it worked reliably on Linux yesterday as well as today, but not (not at all, ie [Search | Copy] only) on Win10 in the meantime.

    New menu button with lil “O” is here to stay?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What new menu button? It looks the same here.

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        No, I think, the “O” is a little smaller and shows the full “O”, not only a part of it.

        • x a

          Same her – 32bit on Windows10/64. The Linux version however shows the same O-Menu cropped “O” as in the versions before.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, I have that menu button since a while. Maybe due to some flag I’ve enabled and now is enabled by default.

    How to import “SPEED DIAL” URL’s from opera 40 to “new” opera ?

  • Lukasz Kul

    Why when I synchronize browser, my SPEED DIAL url’s goes not to SPEED DIAL in “new” OP, but there “BOOKMARKS” -> “IMPORTEED BOOKMARKS”.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      They should be in “Other Speed Dials’.

      • Lukasz Kul

        In my opinion SPEED DIAL should be in speed dial no somwhere else

        • Leonardo Gomes

          It has been a old and long discussion. Some prefer to have the same Speed Dial on all installations and others prefer to have different ones for home and work, for example.
          And, you know, not everyone can be pleased all the time.

          Anyway, what I meant was that in current design those Speed Dials should be in ‘other speed dial’.

          • Lukasz Kul

            You are absolutely right. But I just want the same Speed dial url’s in “new version” OP, what in “old version”, so it should be posible to export/import to the file, speed dial -and everybody will be able to choose what the want.

    As of 42.0.2392.0, the Web Panel sidebar extension no longer works for Facebook or Twitter. The previous version of Opera Developer before Opera Developer 42.0.2392.0 worked fine with respect to the Web Panel (sidebar) extension for viewing Twitter and Facebook in the sidebar. I use https://m.facebook.com and https://mobile.twitter.com for this extension.

  • Strange bug after update on opera://about/

    It says “Version: 42.0.2392.0 – New version 42.0.2392.0 is available”

    It clears after another page refresh

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      I don’t have this bug here. Maybe it has something to do with 32 bit : 64 bit?

      • On macOS there is only 64 bit

      • Can’t be, as there is no 32bit version for macOS for a while now, I think it was a failed refresh in Opera

    • Kornelia

    When will you find a solution to this problem: http://i.imgur.com/9HtNJ2M.png

    News just ends, for no reason, this never happened with the old news page.

    I’ve tried multiple news sources, even ones that worked perfectly before, even removing all of them once then adding only a couple, so much trouble.

    I just want to browse the news of technology and gaming on a global scale, something that worked perfectly before this personalized news page, please either re-add the old page through opera://flags or fix this issue, though to be honest, I’d prefer the old news page just the same, even if it never gets updates in the future, that’s how good it was.

    • Hi. The “old” news and the “new” ones use the same discover service. Sheer amount of news articles remains the same, no matter the client.

      Discover service holds up to 14 days of history. This means no matter if that’s a new look or the old one, you will not get articles older than that.

      I just tried it with the old version (Opera 38) and I scrolled till the end of stream (gaming category) and the oldest ones were from 14 days ago.

      However you may feel that there’s something missing due to changed way how we present the articles. No only they are structured and sorted on a timeline, but you can select individual sources. This make it more apparent that at some you reach the limit. In the old approach articles from different sources were mixed together and it was harder to spot it. Your screenshot shows that you’re using more condensed layout (timeline) which makes it even easier to reach the 14 days limit.

      Btw. Nice selection of subscribed sources 😉

      • Gloriam

        Sadly, news is most of the time not even 24 hours old, if you check the screenshot again you’ll see the last news article is 13 hours ago and it already stops, not even articles that I saw yesterday are in it anymore.

        And with the old news page, I indeed could go several days back.

        For some reason I don’t reach the 14 days of history in most cases, what’s even more strange it changes day to day, I recall when setting these sources up I could go back several days, now it’s not even a day.

        I really like the feature, even in it’s current form it’s much better than any other program or website, but it has to work. 🙁

        And thanks 🙂

        • Thanks for the screenshot because that helps a lot for this discussion. I can see that you have “Hardcore Gamer” subscribed. It is a source not available in our catalog. Which means you have added “Hardcore Gamer” either manually providing the RSS URL (http://www.hardcoregamer.com/feed/) or just typed hardcoregamer.com in the search field and let the Opera find the related RSS. If you inspect closely what’s inside the RSS feed you’ll see that articles ends pretty quickly. Indeed less than 24h ago.

          So what you are seeing here is a correct behaviour of RSS reader.

          • Gloriam

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

            Another example, removed hardcoregamer for a bit, it now stops at 11 hours, many of the news sites added are from the old news page, which were added automatically after the update to the new news page.

            This has to be a problem no? It stops showing news way too early with news sites that worked normal with the old news page.

          • Thanks for the other example. This is a different case, this is a source from our catalog. I can confirm I see similar (short) list of articles.

            Have you spotted such a problem today or earlier? Source that come from our catalog are processed by our service and thus in case of some server side issues – articles can be omitted. In case of RSSes, all processing is done on client side (and you can always compare against clear RSS to ensure that everything is displayed).

            I will file a bug for this issue. Thanks.

            In the meanwhile as an alternative solution you can add manually the RSS: http://www.gameinformer.com/feeds/TheFeedRSS.aspx

          • Gloriam

            I’ve been having this problem since the new news page was introduced, after not being able to fix it myself by removing all the sources and then adding only a few, I switched to the old news page through Opera://flags, but that was recently removed.

            I’ll live with the problem for now, thanks for filing a bug report! 🙂

          • No problem 🙂

            I’m using personal news on daily basis. I use them a lot. But I tend to check them couple of times during a day. Maybe that’s why I haven’t noticed “end of stream”. I just check “most recent” articles. Never missed anything there 🙂

          • Gloriam

            Yeah, I tend to scroll down quite a bit, especially at the start of the day since a lot of that news comes from US news sites, I would be sleeping around the time they publish that stuff. 🙂

          • Chrissi G

            Is there now any way to get the old news page back?

          • Gloriam

            No, you’ll have to use the new one, but my problems were soon gone after I reported it, with the new site suggestions that pop-up every once in awhile I started to rather like it over the previous news page.

          • Chrissi G

            Damn, i Want my kategories back like technologie, travel and games…..

          • Gloriam

            Websites that were in those categories should have been added to your list for the most part, every once in a while, while scrolling you’ll see suggestions, not as easy as before, but you have a lot more choice now.

            Hopefully at some point they’ll offer import/export options to make it easier between multiple systems (I use 3 for example and it is a bit annoying to get them the same)

          • Chrissi G

            Yeah but I like one kategorie with a lot of different feeds inside. This time, I only use opera mini because he got the old news feature

          • Gloriam

            That will probably change in the future, might be a good idea to get used to it on the desktop version while you can.

            I did make a suggestion to re-add the category based news page as an option (perhaps replace the top 50 with that).

            I’m rather happy with the system now, so make the suggestion yourself every news article, sometimes they do take notice. 🙂

    Serious problems with performance in Google image search

    Serious problems with performance in Google image search. In Chrome everything is fine.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Try to find some image in Google: http://jpegshare.net/06/15/0615524cb56d253c69596d871c1edb9e.jpg.html
    2. Start scrolling down the page simultaneously moving the mouse cursor.

    Actual result: Scrolling very slow and jerks.

    Expected result: Should be no worse than in Chrome.

    DNAWIZ-8363

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Not exactly the best scrolling performance but far from being the worse at all. At least here.

      Anyway, how many people would scroll a page while moving the mouse cursor around?

    • Marc

      Also if you drag the scrollbar and move your mouse up/down and to the left (while still pressing the left mouse button) at some point it stops scrolling and snaps back.

      • Юлия

        That’s a Windows feature 🙂 Works on every program; Firefox: https://i.imgur.com/WTV3zNH.gif
        If you leave the scroll area (considerably wider than the scroll bar) it goes back from where you started to scroll. I assume it’s to compare content from two different places. Once you go back in the scroll area the scrollbar moves near your pointer again.

        • Marc

          Wasn’t the default behaviour that it would keep scrolling no matter how far away you move the mouse from the “scroll area”? I always thought that’s how it worked.

          • Юлия

            Nope 🙂 File Explorer, IE and Office (2010) behave in the same way as well.

        • Ari

          As Leonardo says below, this is really unusual scenario.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Maybe because almost no one in the world scroll pages while moving the mouse around?

          And as I said, even doing it the decrease in performance is not that high.

          • Cobalt

            >“Maybe because almost no one in the world scroll pages while moving the mouse around?”

            In order to the mouse pointer does not move while scrolling, it is necessary to detach the mouse from the surface of the desk/mouse pad. I think it’s doing 0.001% of users =P

            >“And as I said, even doing it the decrease in performance is not that high.”

          You’re using a developer version explicitly distributed for testing purposes, so you’re a tester, not a regular user. If that doesn’t suit you, go back to the stable version. It’s really that simple.

          • Cobalt

            This problem exists since the first version (15) of the new Opera!!! That’s why I shocked by the fact that for so many years no one from the developers noticed of this bug 0_0

          • Rafał Chłodnicki

            I admit it’s a bit embarrassing to have such a bug for such a long time. 🙂

            But the trigger situation is a bit more complicated than just moving mouse while scrolling. There also has to be links under the mouse so that the status popup tries to display a URL.

            To defend our QA a bit, I guess it’s not that obvious that it’s a problem with the browser and not the page, unless you compare directly with other browser.

            In any case, better late than never. 🙂

            And if you are seriously thinking about becoming a tester then you might want to have a look here https://www.operasoftware.com/company/jobs/list#Opera 🙂

          • Cobalt

            I don’t know why you have such a bad QA, but the fact that the tooltip in the lower left corner appears instantly, not with the minimum of delay, as in the other browsers (Firefox and Chrome), I noticed immediately as soon as I tried the 15 version of Opera. I have also noticed problems with the scrolling performance because of this nuance a few years ago =)

            P. S. It’s fucking weird, guys!!!

    Now, next step with news reader is to put the little blue notification on the tab itself and on each source so I know which sources have new content. Why may this be important? In my case I am subscribed to Formula 1 news. But I can’t watch the race live. So I don’t want to read the F1 news beforehand. But I still want to know and read news from my other feeds, and I would love to see a notification on each feed individually.
    And finally, do you have any news about he Android / Mobile team regarding including the news reader on Opera Mobile?

      It would be good to update the of the news reader page, and use different favicon if we use it pinned.

    does this means that it will be possible to push any!! origin in tabs history list?

    if that’s the case, it would be much more useful to make it as some sort of extension permission, so that extensions can restore tabs history automatically when restoring tabs…
    asking user action when restoring, for instance 30 tabs, would be HUGE annoyances

    I think the Currency converter feature will be a bust for many people. There are lots of different currencies that use the same symbol (take CAD and USD, for instance – since they’re neighbouring countries, I’m sure lots of people would like to do this conversion – except it won’t work, because Opera will always assume $415 to be USD$415, even if it is CAD$415).
    This happened to me when checking prices from flights between Canada and Portugal – I thought the Euro price proposed by Opera was super high until I realized it was converting from USD and not from CAD (even if there are lots of places in the page saying all prices are in CAD). When we had the Escudo in Portugal, the symbol used was the same (although we did write 415$, instead of $415 like they do in North America)

    It also seems to be pretty inconsistent – by default, the selecting usually expands to a space after the number. But in this case no conversion is made. I have to millimetrically select the text to make sure only the number and currency symbol are selected. Even then, there are a few times where no conversion is shown.

    I like the feature (or the idea of it) but I think that there are too many practical problems that will make it fall into oblivion. The ambiguity of the currency symbol being a major one.
    Personally, I think it would be much more useful and less prone to these kinds of issues to have a “translate selected text” feature.

    • Bartosz Wiklak

      The problems with selection should be solved in next iteration. As for currencies having the same symbol – we will explicitly show what currency is used. We’re aware of this problem but we don’t want to make it another full blown calculator.

    Will Opera ever Support Tab Overflow? I keep coming back to check and it really is still the same problem. While the current Tab List gives you much more flexibility, it seems it still does not solve the real needs for users with 10+ Tabs.

    The same problem with Chrome and Opera has carries this over. The tab size will shrink, at 10 Tabs the size is clickable but you cant read the title and therefore wont know which page it is if they are the same site with same logo. You will have to navigate to the Tab list to see. And over 20 they are barely clickable.

    When you are on a list of tabs to read, the closest tabs to the one you are current reading are likely in a group you want to focus on. I.e You will want to see their Tab wider and little more description.

    The current design forces you to travel to Tab list every time when you have over 20 tabs, and the mouse travel and clicks isn’t very convenient.

    The Tab list should also show the number of tabs we currently have.

    I really wish Opera could reconsider this, even as a experimental features for advance users.

    Note: The current close button on Tab bar get “hidden” behind if the list is long and the scroll bar appears.

        You will have to mouse over the Tab to get the title information. And you basically see list of Icon and have no idea what they are.

        • x a

          What’s the solution?

          A wrapping tab bar costs screen real estate and has tabs jumping from right to left of next line, in case you open-next-to-current tabs near the head of the tab sequence. (Know-location UX principle breached.)

          An extender menu means additional clicks, especially if working near the end of the tab sequence. Plus, there is even more of a “out-of-sight=out-of-mind” problem than with current implementation of shrinking tab widths.

          Compared with the former approach, a left/right scrollable tab bar gives more freedom to in which range of the tab sequence you want to work but does not fix the remaining deficiencies.

          The current implementation changes screen location of a tab only gradually as more tabs are opened and while each tab width shrinks; this at expense of information about each tab. It does not put tabs out of sight. – I think, it’s the best compromise, UX wise.

            Maybe you’re right. Dunno. Anyways, stacking only helps, if there are various clusters of tabs belonging to a certain topic or theme. Otherwise either establishing different stacks doesn’t make a lot of sense or a stack is too large and we hav the situation we began with.

          • Nekomajin43

            Well, most users don’t use more than a few tabs. But it is very sad, that there were no real progress in this topic in the last few years in any browser. The Opera tab menu is a joke too.

          • DMCA

            i can make with win10, 100 desktop tabs x 50 tabs per desktop tab = 5000 tabs
            anyone need more?

          • iwod

            Well yes I must admit I am no average users. On Firefox i could have 500 Tabs Opened. They are more like a To-Do / Reading List. They dont have to be loaded. But they have to be there. I guess it is part of many’s workflow when you are comparing and researching on things. A Single Topic could span into 10s of tabs, and when you have many topics going on, along with the usual Email, Social Tabs they do add up.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            For me, tab stacking would be useful only if done automatically like in its earlier implementation in Opera Presto.

          • bwat47

            Personally I think the current tab menu is a decent solution, because it gives you a scrollbar and since it’s vertical you can see all the page titles (and hovering gives you a thumbnail).

    • Marc

      Two words: Tab stacking!

      • iwod

        No such options. From what i know Tab Stacking has never come back after the switch to Blink.

        • Raszlo

          Vivaldi has it. Checkmate?

        • Marc

          I know, I hope they’ll reimplement it.

  • Herr Pietrus

    ok, guys, Opera becomes better and better, again it’s the only browser with Speed Dial (what? poor Firefox and Chrome extensions? please…) and built-in mouse gestures… it’s consistent and beautiful…

    but once again I’d like to ask you for one small thing:
    could be the thumbnail of the whole page a default picture suggested for the bookmark? now saving all opened pages as a folder it’s really annoying, because I have to change thumbnail for every page manually….

    i know, I know, no one cares and again nothing will change….

        Thanks 🙂
        I know that you prefer text labels or website logos, but could you at least add a switch on the settings page or a flag? Not every website has a nice logo, text labels aren’t nice too… (and pictures taken form the website are useful only in certain cases, usually when you save few websites with different things to compare them – generally when you’re much more focused on the specific thing described on the website than on the general content or the whole site).

  • Marko Koivuniemi

    I have never experienced this but this has happened me with developer version. Yesterday I used Opera normally and closed my computer. But today Opera starts but all the pages are blank and nothing gets loaded. I cant even open new tabs ore flags/config/settings – they appear blank too. Weird. And now I tested with clean profile it happened too. I now try to uninstall Developer and install it again. Maybe it is related to 32->64 bit upgrade. And it helped too. I think I could have had Old 64-bit builds to my program files and my current developer in-use was in program files (x86)-folder and that messed things up. But now it works.

    I like the search popup but on some website it can be annoying as hell. Some websites (like Confluence from Atlassian) show a popup too when text is selected. This however results into two popups shown on sometimes the same location.
    I’ve recently found out that pushing on a key (like CTRL, arrow or letter key) or clicking on Copy option causes the Opera popup to disappears (and the Confluence popup remains), however not everyone will figure this out. I would suggest that your UI geniuses will figure something out to solve this issue.

    I’m experiencing performance drop on http://www.agar.io instantly after the latest update. It cuts considerably when I move, the fps drops. I checked with other browsers to be sure, it’s something in Opera dev. I’m on a low end laptop so I feel even small changes. Is there anything new in the flags that I could change that would affect the performance?

  • Cobalt

    Dear Developers:
    Please make a possibility to create a new tab next to the current one through the context menu (like in Chrome). This is useful when you need to translate something from your current tab or upload something on the image hosting.

    Please fix it…

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Can’t reproduce here. There is something to be done after selecting the text? Or just doing doing it makes the menu to appears?

      • Cobalt

        Turn off “Enable the search pop-up when selecting text” ~__^

        Sorry dude, but you’re a terrible tester =P

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Now with that new information I could reproduce the issue.

          Anyway, the ‘Using the Alt key brings the menu’ issue seems to be something that has been there since a long time. Your report is just another one.

As Leonardo said is just another report almost nobody cares or notice it as most of your reports.

    Problematic use Alt+ due to the frequent appearance of the main menu =(

    I use the extension “Currency Converter”: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/currency-converter/lncdobdbibdgoiohgnflmjajfphcnakg?hl=ru
    To activate it, I assigned a keyboard shortcut Alt+C. Unfortunately, greatly hampered by the frequent appearance of the main menu while pressing this key combination. In Chrome everything works fine.
    Developers, please, fix it. This is very annoying!!!

    DNAWIZ-8509

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Here, pressing Alt key only opens the menu if no other key is pressed together.

      • Cobalt

        Bullshit! If you quickly press Alt+C together, the main menu appears for a moment and quickly disappears. Annoying!

        • Leonardo Gomes

          But it happens also without that extension running?

          I don’t have it installed but I tried some shortcuts with Alt and none made the menu to appear.

          • Cobalt

            If you QUICKLY press Alt+C TOGETHER
            And yes, try the “Currency Converter” with this key combination (Alt+C).

          • Leonardo Gomes

            OK, if I press Alt together with C (what by the way is not the correct way of ‘doing’ the Alt + C shortcut) very quickly then I can see something flashing on the left where the menu is supposed to be.

            So it seems to be a low priority one.

          • Cobalt

            Finally!!!
            As I said before, you’re a terrible tester.
            And yeah, in Chrome everything works fine.

    FEATURE REQUEST
    # Unread Indicator on Tabs #

    Can we please have this feature on Developer channel so it will be great addition to users? It will improve usability for me and I am sure for everyone.
    What do you think mods? @anet_qa:disqus

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Unread indicator of what? That the tab wasn’t visited yet like in Opera Presto?

      • yigido

        I opened many tab and I do not visit them yet. So It will remind to to “Heyy! you still did not read this tab and do not close it!”

        • SiMcarD

          I think that will be used by a few people..probably only you 🙂

            How many of you need “currency conventer” ?? maybe no one expects such addition..I will never use it. But Opera going to add it. My suggestion will be very good. You will see.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Maybe, but I remember that many people used to like this feature.

    • Юлия

      Sync is hardly a priority imo since:

      The total active number of users of Opera sync in the last month is 1.7 million, less than 0.5% of the total Opera user base of 350 million people.

      https://blogs.opera.com/security/2016/08/opera-server-breach-incident/

      If you care about your data, you should avoid every “cloud” -related service, regardless of the company.

      An option would be to copy your “Opera” folders from:

      C:Usersyour_usernameAppDataLocal
      C:Usersyour_usernameAppDataRoaming

      to your other PC. It’s better, faster, easier, safer, you name it. The folder you’re looking after might be named “Opera Software” for Opera 15+. Don’t combine Opera Presto with Opera Blink profiles though, it won’t work.

      I copy those entire folders across my three PCs and it generally works perfectly for all my software.

      • Rick

        Gotta say, I don’t see even the fanciest of accounting tricks, or loose definitions of “user base,” putting the Opera user base at a quarter of a billion. It just doesn’t seem possible.

    new update broke Opera Dev for me, any new page now loads for more than 30secs :/ Yesterday (before update) all was good, never had any problem but this update breaks things. I think it is related with 64bit version. Tried to uninstall/install and still stuck, opera simply does nothing for 30 sec any new page I open, then starts loading page. On opera Beta and Stable all works fast. Also when reinstalling opera Dev, Replace 32bit with 64bit checkbox is grayed out. User Marko Koivuniemi reported something similar down the thread
