Today’s stable release is stage two of the Reborn project. Opera 46 improves the quality of Opera Reborn by introducing more user interface changes, reducing crashes, fixing issues for built-in browser VPN, and adding support for animated PNG files (APNG).

First release after Reborn

Reborn has generated huge interest, marking a big step forward in the development of our browser. We do not stop there but keep adding new flavors to the Opera UI. The latest version comes with visual improvements, usability enhancements and as well as new functionality. Here are some of the things you can expect:

  • Speed Dial is now dark when wallpapers are disabled and dark theme is enabled
  • When importing bookmarks, items from the bookmarks bar will appear in Opera’s bookmark bar automatically
  • Macbook touchbar users can enjoy an emoji-enabled input field

New backgrounds

If you’re looking for the full Reborn experience, you can try the exclusive backgrounds. We have partnered with top industry artists Umberto Daina and Feridun Akgüngör to create a custom set of fresh, cool backgrounds. There are many others to choose from, including animated ones.

Focus on stability

In the last months we dedicated even more time to achieve greater stability of Opera. We fixed various crashes, memory leaks and glitches that impair user experience. So far the focus on quality has given a generous 35% reduction in crashes per user, making the latest Opera browsers the very best in terms of stability.

Support for animated PNG

Opera now supports APNGs, or animated PNG files. These are similar to your regular GIFs, but smaller. APNG also supports 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency which help them maintain quality. This format has become quite popular recently, particularly since Apple adopted the APNG file format for iOS 10 iMessage apps. It’s worth noting that APNG was also supported in Presto.

Watch the APNG demo and learn more about this format.

Latest engine, better performance

Opera 46 runs on tuned Chromium version 59, which introduces expensive background tab throttling. This technology reduces the processing power required for background tabs and improves battery life and overall browsing performance. Try it out yourself with this background timer throttling demo.

Opera’s first TV ad

Together with this release, we are also launching our first TV advertisement for the browser. The ad will go live in our biggest market, Russia and is a celebration of all the reactions you have when you watch content of the internet.

Enjoy browsing with Opera 46, and stay tuned for more Reborn improvements this summer.

    Congrats on Opera 46 Stable release with the first TV advertisement !

    • Maarten

      FUCK the TV ad, built a good browser. That’s a far better marketing strategy. I do’nt care about TV ads. What I care about is that v44 was very good but the reborn Opera is a laugh.

    • That ad… Really?

  • Alex Wazovskiy

    When Opera is run, the dwm.exe process starts loading GPU almost at 100%, which makes Windows (7, x86) lagging. It happens since Opera 44 till this release. Before that, GPU consuming was quite insignificant, and browser worked more smooth.

    • Ewa

      Hi, what video card do you have?

      • Alex Wazovskiy

        NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (It’s integrated videocard)

  • jojoPL1987

    I still waiting for Opera Notes with synchronization.

  • Александр Липницкий

    In the new version of the opera starting from 45 (there are no such problems only up to 44 versions inclusive), the problem when opening the browser for a fraction of seconds is displayed by the theme of Windows (who has a light transparent transparent screen for a fraction of a second), lags on flash games and YouTube, Smoothness. (WIN 7 x64)

    • Ewa

      Thanks, reported

  • Igors90
  • Matej Szendi

    After upgrade to Opera 46 I have some HIDPI problems:

    Monitor is Dell UltraSharp U2515H.
    Windows scaling is set to 125%.

    • Cryio

      I’ll check v46 on my SP4 and see if it’s usable.

      Edit: Update to v46. It looks fine with my 200% scaling.

    • Sebastian

      Thanks, reported.

      You’re right – for 200% it looks fine, but e.g. for 350% there is a problem (Win10).

  • The problem with non-working buttons in the browser header when hardware acceleration is enabled seems to be finally fixed. This happened on two different PCs with Intel G41 graphics chipset for me, have to check my Dell Latitude laptop now where this was an issue as well.

    OK, works fine now on my laptop, too. Thank you very much!

  • redfox

    I’d like to ask what VPN fixes have been made. Thanks.

    • FluffyBoyo

      Other location options? and to act more like a proper VPN would be good.

  • Cryio

    The picture in picture player has black borders again for no reason. And you can only resize the window from within the black borders.

    Bug? Feature? Please be a bug.

    • This sounds like a bug.

      • Cryio

        It looked like this in early v45 beta versions. It was fixed in v45 stable. It’s again here in v46 stable.

  • Cryio

    “Opera 46 runs on tuned Chromium version 59, which introduces expensive background tabs throttling”

    In about:flags, Background tab throttling is disabled. Am I missing something?

    • Steven D.

      Same on my end with win7 64. I enabled it. Waiting to see if I have any issues.

      • Check #expensive-background-timer-throttling, that’s the one you’re looking for.

  • CUF|Cyl3erunion

    Hi.. For a while now since Opera upgraded, sync between mobile browser and desktop browser has been disconnected. Has this problem been fixed with the new update? Desktop-desktop sync works fine.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Are you using a pass-phrase in sync? Opera for mobiles doesn’t support it so sync won’t work between mobile and desktop if you have it enabled.

      • CUF|Cyl3erunion

        Hi. Previously when it was still synced, it was on pass-phrase. However, I have forgotten my pass-phrase since. Last week or so, I updated my password on Opera Accounts, and so was logged out of sync on all browsers. After logging in with my new password, I was prompted to enter my pass-phrase, but since I have forgotten it, I had to reset sync. After doing so, I was only able to maintain sync between Desktop browsers but not for Mobile browser. On Mobile browser, I can log in and “login is successful, you can now sync between browsers” message appears, but it seems sync is immediately logged out — pressing the sync button on home page leads to login page again. There is no pass-phrase at the moment.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Does it disconnect only in Opera for Android or Opera Mini? Have you tried reporting it in the Mobile Team blog?

          • CUF|Cyl3erunion

            I have no idea where in that blog to report this. I did add my comments to a thread on this issue started by another user in the forums.

            I am only using Opera for Android on my mobile.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Just post a comment there. Or you can do it on the Forum:

  • i’am using opera on mobile deviceses and it the best mobile browser

  • No crash to update, but it is loading all tabs even minimized windows starts at 46% CPU usage

    macOS 10.12.5

  • Amazing A the browser starts to hang very much

  • Nekomajin43

    That ad… Really?

  • Breno Teixeira Trancoso

    1 – Submenus’ spacing
    2 – No translation into Portuguese Brazilian

    • Geazi Soares

      About translation, looks normal here.

      • Breno Teixeira Trancoso

        @Nazgul_Zera:disqus Version 46?

      • Leonardo Gomes

        Yours shows the ‘bookmarks bar’ folder translated but not the ‘all bookmarks’ one.

    • Ewa

      Thank you! Both reported.

  • alligoodw

    It’s a personal opinion, a personal experience, I know! But I have used just about every web-browser known to humankind, and I find Opera to be the best. There are occasional hiccups, but my experience here at home is stellar. So this isn’t a complaint but rather a praise. Kudos to the Opera team. Keep up the good work.

  • SEO

    Very Nice Browser, Fastest Loading, Super Design

  • Dark Magician

    Jagged font on The Guardian in this version.

  • Руслан

    In the new version, something strange with a spinning loading circle (spinner / Win 7). It responds to any action you make in the browser, especially for tabs. You open a new tab, it reacts. You jump between the tabs it reacts to. The page is reloaded and it reacts again. Nothing like this in version 45. This is very annoying because the spinner works like a stroboscope. As if it opens a thousand programs in the background mode.

    • Spideymang

      Same here!

    • redfox

      64 bit or 32? I am on 32 and no problems

      • Руслан

        I am on 64

        • redfox

          I had the throbber problem until I deleted the opera_autoupdate.exe file

    • Adrian Bond

      Same problem. CPU usage increases and heats up when I scroll down speed dial.
      Windows 10, 64 bit

    • NimeshT

      Yes, same problem, cursor blinking too much, CPU usage shoots.

    • Herr Pietrus

      Haven’t seen anything like that. i5 Skylake and Windows 7 x64

  • I have switch to Opera 45 after a while using Chrome 🙂

  • Altmann78

    When i right click on the sidebar extensions, the option menu doesn`t show up like in previous versions.

    • Nekomajin43

      I can confirm this on Win7 32 bit.

    • Ramsey

      Opera, stop removing right click context menus and start adding them!! When I used Opera a month ago I was disappointed at the lack of context menus and normal options like “Reload tab”. It felt like it’s a browser that JUST came out.
      Look and do as Vivaldi does and you’ll win over it.

  • Spideymang

    Congrats guys!!! it’s amazing the improvements and the look&feel to work smoothly, I love it!
    Greetings from Mexico city

  • Hector MA

    Focus on stability? seriously? I haven’t seen a crash in aeons!!

  • Marco Caçoete

    Please make it so the new sidebar autohides.

  • Ironhead

    What did you do with “Delay loading of background tabs”?

    Now it starts to check in and load for at least 4-5 “background” tabs after Opera launch. Before that (v45 etc), only the last tab was loaded, and the rest did not load at all.

    Maybe it’s just bug? If not, then can you undo these changes?

    • Kalo

      The only thing I can say is that the option is still available in the settings

    • Leonardo Gomes

      This is how it should work, background tabs are slowly loaded.

  • Hetai-Na

    Hi, I have a problem with Opera in Google Maps. Can you fix it please?

    Thank you.

    • also having problems with not loading

      rapid hourglass cursor blinking. WIN10-64

      • Adrian Bond

        This update has a lot of issue. Disappointed 🙁

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What OS? Google Maps seems OK here on Windows 10.

      • Hetai-Na

        I’m using Windows 10 64-Bits, Creators Update. You probably are not having problem because you language is other than portuguese.

      • WIN10-64 not working at all. Loads overview, top left search bar and then Hangs, with rapid hourglass cursor blinking.

        Have deleted cookies and Opera shows same behavior in private mode.

        46.0.2597.26 (PGO) Norwegian.

        • Stefan Gries

          I do have the same problem. Very very annoying.

          • Make sure you have hardware acceleration enabled in Opera Settings.


          • Stefan Gries

            It is already enabled. This problem was introduced with Opera 46.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Does opera://gpu shows that hardware acceleration is being used?

          • Stefan Gries

            Canvas: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Flash: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Flash Stage3D: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Flash Stage3D Baseline profile: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Compositing: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Multiple Raster Threads: Enabled
            Native GpuMemoryBuffers: Software only. Hardware acceleration disabled
            Rasterization: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Video Decode: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            Video Encode: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
            WebGL: Hardware accelerated but at reduced performance
            WebGL2: Unavailable

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Try enabling opera://flags/#ignore-gpu-blacklist to turn hardware acceleration on.

          • Stefan Gries

            Great, that helped! Thanks!
            Opera should just check, why this is necessary. Usual users won’t be able to ask here.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Chromium seems to block some video cards drivers, possibly because they think those don’t work well with their engine.

  • Hetai-Na

    I really miss two features in Opera. First in a Reader mode, just like Edge Browser, or Firefox, and in second, a translation pop-up when selecting a word or phrase. Nice to have but less important are a zoom control in address bar and a bookmarks menu. I miss this things. I hope Opera can have it soon. Thanks for working with Opera!

  • R123

    Dear Opera developers: Can you add support for Netflix video at 1080p resolution (or higher)? This could increase Opera share in browser market.
    Chrome, Opera and Firefox support playback of Netflix movies in 720p resolution in Win7, Win8.1 & Win10. IE11 in Win7 support only 720p (it uses Silverlight 5).
    IE plays Netflix movies at resolution 1080p in Win8.1 and Win10. Edge in resolution 1080p or 4K in Win10.
    Adding 1080p or 4K in Opera would especially important for Win7 users (all browsers play Netflix video at 720p in Win7; there is no Netflix app for Win7).

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I guess it may not depend only on Opera to happen.

      • R123

        But it should happen.
        Opera developers can cooperate with Netflix competitors first (Amazon, DirecTV, ShowMax,…). Then Netflix will begging for help 🙂

  • Ben Bout

    APNG, woohoo!

  • Nikolay Fedorovskih

    For why you removed “Turbo” toggle from menu? A toggling in settings is very uncomfortable 🙁

    • Hector MA

      I tought it was completely removed. Foolish move indeed.

  • Vlad Violenty

    bad fonts at ubuntu 16.04 unity

    • Mateusz

      Same at Windows 10×64 Creators Update.

  • Walkie Talkie

    Opera crashes (freezes) on elementryOS 64bit (Ubuntu 16.04 based distro) during download process.

  • Davide Repetto

    Another (bigger) problem; GPU acceleration is disabled for me on this release, while it was working in the previous stable.

    EDIT: I “solved” this by setting the #ignore-gpu-blacklist flag

  • Davide Repetto

    The flag to disable/enable “extended lazy session loading” is gone as well. 🙁
    For me it was way more useful to reload tabs only on access, rather than having them all load gradually in the background as per the default.
    Closing and reopening opera was a convenient way to “unburden” the system memory and opera itself, without losing focus on a complicate session. But now it is useless for this usecase… :(((
    Can you bring back the flag, please?

    • Ramsey

      I like lazy loading as well :(.

    • It is a pain when Opera spikes to 80%+ CPU on start up loading most tabs, rather than only active ones and ones that are not minimized. (used to be like that)

      Looks like #offline-auto-reload-visible-only does not work

    • RussianNeuroMancer

      Yes, please, Intel Atoms and AMD E-Series APU need this flag 🙁

    • Damian eDameXxX Stępnik

      Yes, I have the same problems.

      I usually have 15+ open tabs so every time when I’m opening a browser I see 60-100% CPU usage for 30+ seconds. I hate it.

    • Izer0

      Ou, “extended lazy session loading flag” is gone? So, second reason why I will stay on O44 🙁 Opera guys does’t like advanced users :(.

      • Maarten

        Since newborn version, Opera has become completely ignorant of their vast customer base of long term and loyal users. But who cares, the have an TV ad! That’s what counts apparently.

        • LamiaLove

          Surely you meant since Opera 15.

    • szemenyeigy

      After 10 years of use, I have to ditch opera because of this…

      • LamiaLove

        What will you replace it with?

        • szemenyeigy

          I started using Vivaldi which is made by ex-Opera employees. So far I’m impressed, the only thing missing is synchronization between browsers.

          • LamiaLove

            Do you use tab stacking? If so, how does Vivaldi’s compare to Opera’s?

    • Davide Repetto

      For those like me who are missing this flag:
      Tiny Suspender helps a lot as a workaround. Using it with a 10 minutes timeout and “Automatically restore tab when brought to foreground” works well on Opera and kind of addresses both issues of general ram usage and the long periods of CPU grinding on startup. It would be even better if Opera supported the Chrome “Tab Discard API”.

      p.s. I haven’t seen any comments from Opera on this point. But it would be nice to know if we can still bear hope for this flag or if we have to put our minds at rest…

      EDIT: Here’s a link to Tiny Suspender:

      • LamiaLove

        One word for you: Vivaldi.

        • Davide Repetto

          I have it installed since it’s first beta and I try it regularly, but it’not there yet; at least for my purposes. Plus, it looks really ugly in the mate desktop.

          • LamiaLove

            Vivaldi is ugly in general, but I can only browse decently with it.
            Before Jon announced it, for about one year or so, I was almost crying each time I browsed the web because Opera 12.17 stopped displaying websites acceptably and I had to use the new devoid of useful features Opera.
            I got Vivaldi since the first technical preview and it was lacking and buggy as hell, but it came with a big promise from the man who created the real Opera in the first place. I couldn’t use it in that state, but I waited. And in the meantime I was hoping Opera would bring back the features old Opera had. And my loyalty remained with Opera. For at least another half an year I was waiting for Opera to do the right thing. They didn’t. In the mean time, Vivaldi got to the point where I could use it as my main browser. And my loyalty STILL remained with Opera. For at least another half an year I was ready to drop Vivaldi if Opera did the right thing.
            But Opera never did do the right thing, so now I don’t think I would switch to Opera even if it started doing the right thing.
            Vivaldi has been doing the right thing from the beginning, so I trust it more than Opera.

            Is Vivaldi ugly? Yes. Does it matter to me? Not after almost two years of shit Opera gave me, it doesn’t.

            Sure, Opera is a for profit company and doesn’t owe anything to me or any of its users, but still…

          • Davide Repetto

            I’m not using Vivaldi because it doesn’t (yet?) cover my use cases well, not because of how it looks. That, I would put aside if the rest was fitting.

            Granted, with Opera I need a lot of extensions, but with those, after years of suffering I can finally work comfortably the way I like it. Which btw is quite similar to how Opera 12 used to work… And right now that’s only happening with opera. Not with any other browser!
            Not yet, at least…

            To put Opera in it’s place I need custom start-up switches, a few custom opera:flags, many custom opera:gpu settings, 33 extensions always active, 28 that I activate only when I need them, a few bookmarklets, and three custom bash scripts (these are for very specific purposes).

            Having said that, I only thrust “Opera Software AS” as far as I can throw them. Which, as you can imagine, is not much.
            And of course I’d like a better browser; perhaps one that’s FOSS too!
            But yet again…

          • LamiaLove

            My main use case is having many tabs opened.
            Vivaldi is the last one standing with tab stacks. Sure, they are not as good as they were in Opera 12, but Opera has no tab stacks at all anymore. Firefox went the way of the piece of crap Chrome as well and removed tab usability features and Microsoft cannot make a decent browser no matter how hard they try, so it’s not like I have any choices.
            And, no, I do not like plugins. I love the idea, but I hate having to use them. Sure, using one or two, like the ones generating QR codes so you can quickly scan a link from the desktop and use it on you phone, or ad blockers (which I never use and should never be built into the browser), makes sense, but using them to fill in huge gaps in the browser, like tab handling (for Opera), or keyboard shortcuts (for Firefox), which is essential to a browser, is just wrong.
            I don’t care about FOSS at all. FOSS doesn’t automagically improve anything; especially not tab handling. But Vivaldi at least acknowledges that this is an important feature and gives some tools for it; I never cared about tiling pages and lazy loading until I needed them.
            Unfortunately, I leave in a world where there are no browser alternatives anymore…

    • Some trouble:(

  • Leonardo Gomes

    If I remember correctly, it has changed into a different command line.

    • nanana1

      It should be –disable-update

  • redfox

    It also ignores the -noautoupdate switch, like in 45

    • nanana1

      Try this instead :


  • ArkuS

    Witam wygląda na to że tylko ja mam problem z paskiem na dole ekranu. Instalowałem Opere na innym laptopie i wszystko dobrze tylko u mnie jest ten pasek na dole. Dodam że reinstalowałem Operę oraz instalowałem wersje beta i deweloper a nawet robiłem nowy profil i nic nie dało.
    Więcej info o tym problemie tutaj:

  • Matheus Bitencourt


    Opera is currently the best desktop browser!

    Still waiting for tab stacking (like Opera 11) return though.

    • ktxgio


    • Ramsey

      Yes please! Would love that as it would help me at work so much! I have so many tabs open and many of them I can group into categories.

      • Regnas

        Right click on a tab and choose save tabs as speed dial folder…. Calm down, calm down, I know it’s not the same thing, but it helps a lot to organize things… And then you can right click on that folder and choose open all in new tabs.. Cool huh?
        Don’t be mad at me………………………………… 🙂

        • Ramsey

          Lol, no worries! Thanks for the suggestion! Only issue is I have to remember that I have them in Speed Dial since I don’t see the speed dial all the time 😀

    • FluffyBoyo

      Or tab scrolling with the mouse wheel like FF. A good solution for those using 100-200+ tabs open all the time.

    • Raylan Givens

      NO! Opera 46 should not become as bloated as opera 12. Chromium already became bloated. Chromium is not even browser anymore, it’s an entire OS. Opera should remain as light and fast as possible.

      • Matheus Bitencourt

        Dude, it can come with a option to turn off this feature.
        Tab stacking has NOTHING TO DO with modifications on the engine (Blink). Opera 12 became bloated because Presto became bloated, not because it had “a lot of features”. Look at Firefox, it has the same amount of features that Chromium has, but Firefox is really sluggish, while Opera and Chromium are fast.
        A feature that can be disabled won’t affect performance while is disabled anyway

    • LamiaLove

      Tab stacking in Opera… PHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you’re funny.

  • Herr Pietrus

    So in Russia TV adverts works for web browsers…
    Will someone change yandex browser to Opera? 🙂
    I’d like to see so nice advertisement in polish tv…

  • Camerooni

    Cool.. can you fix the double sidebar that’s happening now.. I’d like my extensions that pin to the side bar to pin to the side bar with my chat apps and shortcuts.. not a secondary sidebar that I have to hit ctrl-shift-s for.

  • you are great!

  • Why did you remove the ‘Turbo Mode’ from the settings menu? I use it daily for fast browsing on slow internet connections. Come on guys, really? You do such an amazing work, don’t make your users angry by moving around the best tools.

    • Bali505

      If I’m on the go I use a 10 GB LTE volume always with Turbo Mode activated.
      Some public Hotspots which I use to safe up on my LTE but refuse the Log-In procedure when Turbo is on. So I have to toggle it off & on again. The current solution is very inconvenient.
      Please consider to bring back the old way – or even better – make a toggle on/off button for the side bar, which is activatable in the settings.

  • Nasty bug in Chromium is that the cache gets corrupted a lot (I have to shift reload a lot as pages are broken or video players only play 3 seconds of a 2 minute video or nothing at all, it affects all OSes, Chromium is missing a check for new versions of the page every time like IE has as that helps avoiding corruption in the cache and the site info is not outdated.

  • alex

    I have problem with Opera when livestreaming on FB. When livestream, audio doesn’t sync with image on video. On Firefox and chrome, they synchronize smoothly.

    I think it’s not problem of hardware – it’s software’s problem.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I’ve just watched a livestream and video and audio sync seemed OK.

    • Arjan van Leeuwen

      Which OS are you on and which version? Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, macOS, Linux?

      • alex

        I running windows 10 pro x64 (Creators) on Thinkpad X240 – Core i5 4300U 8GB RAM – Intel HD Graphic 4400. The most important is i dont have problem with Chrome and Firefox – Only on Opera.

      • Maarten

        Bring back windows theme colour (why for god’s sake did Opera abandon this feature?) and let me at least have the possibility to change the colour of the ugly new side bar.

        Opera was great (v44) but newborn Opera is not good. Bye bye Opera. And succes with your TV ad. Wow. Bravo! Maybe you will attract some new users, but at the same time you will dispell your most loyal users with the completely wrong newborn strategy. Wake up, open your eyes and think (again).

        Free advice: hire a designer (or just take a quick look at Opera v44, that version is well designed)

  • Adrian Bond

    Dear Opera Team,
    Please pay attention to the comments. This update needs an overhaul I believe (GPU, CPU usage, design, media stream…). How do you test beta version before releasing the final stable one?!! An immediate solution is requested.

    • Maarten

      They won’t pay attention since they are taken over by Chinese company.

  • cop346

    I pick Opera cuz it has Turbo Mode, now the button is removed and need to open Setting to switch it. Seems I will use previous version until they return it to Menu.

  • peebee

    “Note that since this version we have dropped support for Linux i386.” in very small print!!!
    Great shame! Why is 32-bit no longer supported???

    • Cryio

      Because it’s antiqued?

    • i386 isn’t supported because all those systems have been collected and scrapped and the rubbish sent to China to be recycled into iPhones. Nobody used an i386-class system anymore. Nobody! Didn’t you get the memo? I did. I haven’t been able to use a new version of Opera since version 12.16. You aren’t taken seriously unless you spend all your money on the latest hardware and most of your time upgrading your operating system.

    We still need native window chrome controls on Windows 10.

    And the bookmark menu from the Opera menu is misaligned when opened on 200% DPI scaling.

  • How do we update the old version ??

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It should auto update. You can go to Menu > About Opera to force it.

      You can also download and run the installer.

      • Got it 🙂

    Can i go back to Opera 45? This one doesn’t have Turbo.

    • Hans Hansen

      Turbo is hidden in the settings menu from now on. Go to “Settings” –> “Browser” to activate Turbo.

  • K. K. VinayKumar

    This Opera version “46.0.2597.26” is a complete mess in hidpi screen. Extension icons are blurry, speed dial wallpaper is blurry, speed dial text doesn’t scale properly. Looks like an incomplete work has been sent to stable update. Disappointed from Opera.

  • Nico

    It happened again: I’ve updated Opera and now I have a new Speed Dial entry from after the update. Why is this always happening? I don’t mind pre-baked Speed Dial entries or bookmarks after a fresh install, but this should never happen after an update. I’ve reported this issue a lot of times in the past, yet nothing has been done yet to fix it.

    Please take a look into it.

  • Nekomajin43

    I am working on a toolbar extension to switch Turbo on/off with one click, for those who need it. I want to keep it as simple as possible, BUT if you have reasonable feature requests, please comment!

    • Bali505

      Very good to hear about 🙂

  • oldq

    Where the opera-turbo…? Return to the menu …!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      In Settings.

      • oldq

        Return to the menu …!

    • NJ-JRS

      Right?! I turn this on/off quite often, put Turbo back in the Menu dropdown!

  • Izer0

    It’s a shame that tabs still not properly visible with 200+ tabs, I am interested in background tab throttling, but staying on O44. You guys making Opera for people with few tabs (Youtube, Facebook and Instagram) and make unnecessary problems for more advanced users by removing visible separators (and lowering contrast) (Update: and removing “extended lazy session loading” flag). This is absolutely unnecessary steps in newest versions – basic user will not find differences, advanced users have problems. E.g. I opened 200 tabs a few hours back while searching images for my web site project. One day in advanced user life. Please, put back tabs separators starting from tabs baseline (make it higher), it is invisible right now – visually merged with icons (that is another problem Opera can’t display icons for 200+ tabs, so separators and icons is grey and same height).

    • FluffyBoyo

      I would like to scroll the tabs left and right just like Firefox, but with Opera’s flavour of doing things. Using 100-200+ tabs is impossible to see them clearly and the fav icons. I see just 3pix wide slithers which makes selecting them almost impossible. I love the FF tab scrolling with the mouse wheel, but dislike FF.

      • Herr Pietrus

        I’d like too, but only if I could switch it on and off and set the number of tabs tat will not be scrolled, Or at least if the tabs wont be scrolled as long as the whole favicon is displayed (even without the title)

  • D_from_Russia

    Guys, could you bring the extended-lazy-session-loading back?

    Could you also check why Opera 45 and later does not respect OS view. On my Windows 8.1 it looks like on Windows 10.

    • Izer0

      Looks like on Win10, because Opera copying M$ and Edge, brrrrr 8-| No customization, 2 colors – black and shiny silver. 8-|

  • renzwar

    how can i change the position of the tabs to bottom?
    how can i put viber on sidebar?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You can’t.

    Opera 46: ugly, ragged fonts
    Dell Precision 7710, Nvidia Quadro M3000M Win10Pro,

  • An1madvert0

    Opera 46 crashed on Google page but not any other page. I could not find the problem in Opera settings, but I did try to enter Google as an exception to add blocker. Still no go. I had to reinstall Opera 45; fortunately, I had saved a full download copy. Any other people having this problem?

    • tagboy

      Yep. It now only works with hardware acceleration enabled. I don’t know why. I also kept Opera 45 and may go back.

  • firuz_u7

    This is very frustrating, despite the fact that this link I learned in this thread about Opera 46 that Apple supports APNG

  • Herr Pietrus

    Extension icons are blurry.
    Fonts seems to be a bit narrower and bolder.
    I see that you’ve also changed something and now Neater Bookmarks tree is much much bigger. Perhaps it’s rendered now with my system DPI, but unfortunately it doesn’t look good 🙁

    Does anybody know similar extension in Opera or Google Store? Clean, simple, without ugly menus, hidden trackers etc,? 🙁
    I still need simple bookmarks tree, it’s sometimes the fastest way to open a bookmark.

  • FluffyBoyo

    The dark UI improvements are coming along nicely. Good work. Now if just the other sections could also have a dark mode, such as all the settings pages and add-ons etc. Maybe with there own dark mode UI switch top of screen.

  • Aelavin

    Menu open as should and then shifts to the middle of clicked position. It’s so annoying.
    (Windows 10 64-bit, 32-bit Opera)

    Isn’t it a bit ironic that stable release that is advertised as more stable, has such obvious bugs. This bug above is even present in beta version of Opera 46. Such approach from developer is a little bit disappointing.

  • btn aslan
  • quinten de clerck

    are there plans for tab stacking like in vivaldi?

    • LamiaLove

      I’ve been asking for this ever since Opera 15 was launched back in 2013. I have asked for it for 3 years.
      Then I switched definitively to Vivaldi and I stopped asking.
      And I can do stuff now that I couldn’t do even with the awesome old Opera 12.
      I really want to use Opera, especially since the development was moved to Poland, but I can’t and the lead Vivaldi has over Opera is growing with each Vivaldi snapshot.

  • Linux issues: 1) Opera don’t remember its window size after restart 2) In maximized state there is no close button at all (was in v45)

  • StevenX

    This is the crashiest version of Opera ever for me. I never had a single crash with v45, but in the 2 days I’ve used v46 i’ve had about 6 crashes – usually when opening a whole folder (~20 items) of bookmarks at once, and particularly when a video is playing in another tab. As I work in groups of tabs at a time this way, v46 is almost unusable for me.

  • Keyt Gool

    god damn you return that crappy border in pop out video, why??? it was amazing in stable opera 45 but why you return it??? good thing is twitch now supports pop out video, thanks for that anyway…

  • 2112

    VPN is not working on windows 7 x64.
    It works with beta and developer builds.

  • acn

    Pined tabs loading in the background on startup, one by one. In v45 opera didn’t do that. Linux x64

  • dick_c

    Crashed scrolling Facebook at least once a day.

    • Pablo Medina

      Indeed. Same situation here.

  • Pavel

    Open youtube, open text search Ctrl+F, close search box by clicking [X] button => Crash, repeat.

    • Hans Hansen

      can’t confirm, works flawlessly. Win10 x64 v1703

    • Ari

      Same here, works good

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Works fine here.

  • shashika madushan

    opera 45 was perfect after updating to 46 opera constantly crashing and cant sync my account I thought this would get better with updates but its getting worse

    • Renato Pereira De Bulhoes

      Hi friend. Download Geek Uninstaller Free. On the Geek menu choose: ‘Action’ > ‘Force Uninstall’ or something like this. Do NOT choose the simple uninstalling mode. Get latest Opera again thereafter. Check (ever) if your synchronization is on before and after uninstalling Opera: check all advanced options in synchronization options. Cheers !

    • Maarten

      Opera v45 was not perfect. Dream on.

  • Kev87

    Again a disappointing new release from Opera for me personally.
    I don’t like the way Opera is changing their marketing strategy and development process. I completely lost faith in them and since the takeover is not really getting better.
    The only improvement/new feature that I see in this release is the support for the animated PNG, and – if you want – that emoji imput field for mac, wich seems compeletely useless to me. Other than that just a few bugfixes and adjustements to the dark theme, which was enabled in the earlier version, so that doesn’t count for something completely new, but more as an extra fix.
    They also now proudly mention that the animated png were available in presto, but if a user ask the devs to bring presto features back, they don’t care at all and never listen. Quite strange if you ask me.
    Also it’s really a bit a shame they see these new wallpapers as a big new thing in this release. It’s since v15, the first Chromium one you can change backgrounds to every image you want, so this is really something to fill the blogpost. Come on Opera, don’t you have something else for your users……. It’s version 46 already and you still have these things in your blogposts.
    Chromium update? Yes of course, like in all other versions when you go to stable….
    And since they introduced their VPN, all they care about are those percentages and numbers. Opera is that many seconds faster in our ‘completely independent and confidential test” – uhm uhm – Opera saves so much megabytes compared to others…, Opera blocks so many more ads…, now so many less percent crashes… I mean, nobody cares about the fact that there are 35% less crashes. It is exactly the intention to fix bugs and crashes when you go from a developer version to a stable build, that’s with every release. It’s good they fixed many crashes, but there are still lot’s of them getting reported, so again this is to fill up the blank space the article would otherwise contain.
    And to end, the ad is nice to mention, but it doesn’t make part of any improvement to the browser itself.

    They just make things far too bigger than they are. In the previous release they introduced the famous reborn project. Well I’ve used and followed every single developer version there was since version 15 and the reborn is not more than a new sidebar containing buttons (or at least the bookmark, news etc) which were located for about 5 versions right above the search box in the speed dial, then some versions, completely at the bottom, later they put them on the right again, and so they switched them around to end now in a new sidebar, which now contains the Opera button too and – and I have to admit that that is new – the snapchat, messenger and telegram buttons. And they changed the settings button at the top right from a wheel to a set of sliders, so again just a visual change that doesn’t add any single kind of more value, since it’s just a change of the image. And they introduced a dark theme that lacks any kind of customisation, which after all that time (years) is disappointing it still doesn’t offer that.
    They are really good at avertising things, but as a long time user, my patience is really at the bottom now. Reborn is in my eyes – or at least in this stage- just a nice name for nothing more than again switching around things but not adding much new. Where is the innovation Opera!!!

    • Izer0

      Good points. Their innovations is: uniformity – 2 colors for all, disabled lazy session loading, invisible tabs separator so advanced users crying, invisible icon on 200+ tabs, absolutely unusable bookmarks manager for users with more than few hundred bookmarks (I have 6000, it’s pain to load bookmarks, only when must).

      80% of “updates” is about changing colors from silver to bit more silver, omg. I am sure there is simple stupid error on tabs icon handler, because sometimes all icon is visible. Reported 20 versions ago, still not fixed, but we have 40 times updated some colors 🙁 I am staying on O44 because this is now latest usable Opera.

      Opera guys – forget about colors and do development.

      PS: I have 250 – 350 tabs opened daily, I have no crash, last time when stupid W10 skin was introduced. 🙂 It’ş all I can say about 35% less crashes.

      • Kev87

        True. The should focus on more real features like they did in the presto times. But it’s now like they never know where to put things, so they switch them around every few versions. It’s so frustrating when you compare it to what Opera used to be…

        • LamiaLove

          That’s why I switched to Vivaldi.

          • Kev87

            I made the switch too. Vivaldi is also not yet what O12 was, but they are on the right track, which isn’t the case at all with Opera.

          • LamiaLove

            Well, regarding tab stacking, it looks like they don’t even plan to be what Opera 12 was, which sucks big time if you ask me, but it’s not like there are alternatives out there. I’ll just have to deal with what Vivaldi has. Shitty stacking is still better than no stacking at all.

    • Maarten

      Spot on! I agree. But Opera devs won’t listen. Don’t know what happened at Opera, but hey they have an TV ad 😉 Wow, bravo !

  • Loysek

    Since the reborn update (including this latest) every now and then (I really can’t pin point the reason, it appears at random times) my extensions settings restart.

    For example “Magic Actions for Youtube” losses all previous saved settings so I need to configure them again – like its just now installed for the first time.

  • FluffyBoyo

    Something for us high tab count users would be nice. 150+ tabs is impossible to chose tab from the tiny slithers. It got worse when you moved the Opera menu onto the left end of the tab bar.

    Mouse wheel scrolling tabs left and right like FF does would be great. But in your own Opera flavour of course.

    • LamiaLove

      The nerve to ask such a thing… Humph…
      Next you might ask for tab stacks. The nerve!

      Seriously, just switch to Vivaldi. It still has lots of bugs but at least the damn thing is useful for browsing.

  • The pop up when opening folders from bookmarks bar jumps up a little.

  • L33t4opera

  • icetom

    did the release fix bookmark bugs users have reported?

    • Hi, the playlist got shuffled and the TV ad video was moved out of first place. It’s fixed now.

      This release comes with numerous bug fixes, including bookmarks as well.

      • icetom

        thanks, taking back my criticism 😀

  • oldq

    No folder names visible in the bookmarks bar
    Lower the window slightly downwards

  • Yehor

    Please make #windows-10-skin option disabled work again!
    So Opera would become respecting windows 10 WINDOWS COLORS again
    The last version where it still works fine is opera 44

    • Maarten

      They won’t. Many people have complained about it but the developers are ignorant. Besides the new side bar is also as ugly as hell. Cannot change te colour of the side bar.

      But who cares, they have an TV ad… bravo !! Now that’s what matters to them… an TV ad anno 2017 but a browser that offends loyal users. Don’t know hwat happened at Opera offices but I guess recent staff changes have not helped.

    How do I enable “expensive background tab throttling”?

    I can’t find it anywhere and the test you suggested says doesn’t work. All tabs were around 500ms, not 1000 or 5000.

    • Vux777

      search in flags for throttling,
      or enter this in address bar:
      you’ll see two of them

      • Raylan Givens

        Thank you mate, but both are enabled. The fact is the test I did on all tabs, even the inactive ones say 500ms. The test suggests that in order to work the inactive tabs should be between 1000 and 5000ms. Unless this happens after, say, 5 minutes. Don’t know what it is not working.

        Check the screenshot:

        • Vux777

          well, I didn’t get to 5k (probably didn’t waited long enough) but…
          I do get instantly 1k if tab is in the background

          Opera stable 46.0.2597.32 (PGO) x64, win10 x64

          • Raylan Givens

            Right… My mistake. The test I did was at a foreground tab. Did the test while the test’s tab in background and got 5000ms. Thank you!

    Opera Turbo has disappeared from my Menu – is this deliberate or a glitch in the latest update??

  • Илья Бесфамильный

    Все, это последняя капля. 46 версия сподвигла окончательно расстаться с Оперой.
    Из всех браузеров прешел на Vivaldi (1.10) вот в нем действительно осталась концепция Оперы, А в самой опере ныне идиотизм, даже закладки экспортировать нельзя. Пусть скорее загнется. Пишу из оперы, так на этот сайт в ней есть закладка))).
    Все данные и закладки переношу в другой браузер (Vivaldi).

    OPERA R.I.P.

    All, this is the last straw. 46 version pushed finally to part with the Opera.
    Of all the browsers passed to Vivaldi (1.10), the concept of the Opera really remained in it, but in the opera itself it’s idiocy, even the bookmarks can not be exported. Let rather bend. I write from the opera, so this site has a bookmark in it))).
    All the data and bookmarks I transfer to another browser (Vivaldi).

    OPERA R.I.P.

    • Maarten

      The developers don’t listen. They are completely ingnorant. Boasting about an TV ad…. in order to attract new customers? At the same time they definitely offend their most loyal customers. I will stick to Opera 44 (as long as it works) hoping that the developers will understand but I am afraid they won’t.

  • Paul Smits

    Opera Turbo is missing!

  • Thank you so much for adding APNG support.

  • disqus_kgzyKsG70b

    Opera why remove something like turbo from menu, pissing people off is not away to go i seen no reason why turbo was removed from menu…

  • Maarten

    Dear developers,

    Please bring back option to choose OS colour theme. And please give me the option to (at least) change the the colour ot the really AWFUL looking side bar.

    Are you listening? Do you care? I use Opera since 2004. I hate to leave Opera but you leave me no choice. Again: are you listening to your installed base of loyal users or are you completely ignorant?

    Still using Opera 44, hoping you will see UI changes after 44 are simply not good and will revert to the more pleasant looking UI (colours) of v44. But I am afraid you don’t care at all.

    But maybe I should not blame developers but the new Chinese owners. They seem to have no knowledge of design and sound software development.

    • 王秀英

      After seeing that last ignorant sentence of yours, I feel the need to reply.

      Please inform yourself that China and Russia are well known to have the very best software developers in the world. Furthermore, China is the country that has lead the world for many years now. Even American companies such as Apple rely on China before making big decisions.

      It is also not as if the European Opera staff have abruptly stopped working on Opera after Qihu had acquired it. Many staff had been laid off, but the remainder is of course still working on the web browser. In other words, the ones you should be insulting are the same people who have previously needed years to get the Chromium Opera to the same level as Chrome regarding functionality; remember the lack of bookmarks amongst other essential features?

      Secure Browser (by the same company, Qihu) has all of Opera’s features and more. Unfortunately, it is fully in Chinese. Qihu is incredibly influential and has the potential to change Opera significantly. To give you an idea, Secure Browser dominates the Chinese market and is currently the web browser used by everyone in the mainland which houses 1.4 billion citizens. I hope the Opera browser will head toward a similar direction, although it seems very little has changed so far.

      • Maarten

        Reborn Opera sucks (I stay with v44). Apparently the Chinese have laid of the good staff and kept aboard the wrong staff.

        We are not Chinese market, I repeat we (Europeans, Americans) ARE NOT chinese market. Chinese have different standards with respect to aesthetics, just have look at alibaba. The Chinese webdesign (and UI) is not so good and definitely not up to European standards.

        It is nice for you that secure browser is so popular in China but we ARE NOT China. Opera users are mainly European and American. I REPEAT WE ARE NOT CHINA. So fuck off to China if you do not understand the needs of European customers.

        Since Qihu acquired Opera the design has gone worse (example the so-called ‘reborn” version… but it’s an ugly baby). So why have the Chinese bought Opera if their own Secure Browser is so fantastic?

        • 王秀英

          Wow…ignorance at its finest. You seem to believe my reply is the start of a discussion which it is not.

          Nowhere have I said current Opera is the greatest nor have I said we are a Chinese market or have the same needs as China does. In fact, I said the exact opposite as there might be hope after the acquisition looking at real-world proof which includes Secure Browser.

          I am not Opera nor have I got anything to do with their decision-making. Apply some common sense, however, and you may be able to see Qihu has purchased not just the web browser but several parts of the company together with an entire user base.

          You are making a complete fool of yourself, mate. Evaluate yourself, please. And welcome to my block list, by the way.

  • R123

    Dear Opera developers: Can you add support for Netflix video at 1080p resolution (or higher)? This could increase Opera share in browser market.
    Chrome, Opera and Firefox support playback of Netflix movies in 720p resolution in Win7, Win8.1 & Win10. IE11 in Win7 support only 720p (it uses Silverlight 5).
    IE plays Netflix movies at resolution 1080p in Win8.1 and Win10. Edge in resolution 1080p or 4K in Win10.
    Adding 1080p or 4K in Opera would especially important for Win7 users (all browsers play Netflix video at 720p in Win7; there is no Netflix app for Win7).

  • I have been and i will keep saying this for the rest of my life. Opera is great because of their ability to always dance to the latest tune of technology. Keep up the good work.

    What the hell is going on with Opera for Android? Here we have stable version 46, in developer there is even 48. But on android there is still version 42! I’m not saying that “more updates = better software”, but on the other hand Opera is not so flawless, some fix could be usefull, last update is from March. For example today I’m not able to search a job at Linkedin (keyboard immediately minimezes itself when search bar is activated) meanwhile in Chrome it works.

    After the upgrade, and after some time, all favourites in Speed Dial got lost in Windows 10. Why? And, how to get it back? That didn’t happen in Ubuntu, though.

  • Hope Opera 46 works great. I have been waiting XD

    Thank you so much for adding APNG support. Now, I don’t have to rely on Firefox to preview APNG stickers for iMessage and LINE while on Windows. I have same topic about it, you can visit here for more details

  • Paul Walker

    Gee that sounds awsome. Only thing is, updates don’t work. uninstall vers.45 and installer for 46 fails with endless “Downloading”, then “Unpacking” messages then FAIL. Turn off Win 7 firewall. No change. Turn off Avast AV. No change. System restore, same bs. All of above and scrub all the garbage from PC, no help, same error over and over. Tried on Firefox, IE, Chrome, every variation of the above. FAIL. What gives? My Asrock board w/4790K @ 4.5Ghz, 16 GB RAM and Samsung Pro SSD is a beast. Boots in 3 seconds. Any ideas what’s the “all-of-a-sudden, w/version 46” compatibility problem? Everything worked swimingly, ’till this update.

  • Paul Walker

    All resopnses to queries must now be translated into Chinese, then back to English. Perhaps that’s why when you click “download” it does, then you click “install” (on the “downloaded” file) it keeps saying “downloading” and runs amok with massive FAIL.
    It appears the new owners would pay 600 million but not 10 cents more, to hire people that speak English. Like 99% of Chinese products, the specs are a lie, the instructions make no sense and it immediatly fails – wasting hours of your time to try and repair.
    At least you’re consistent, keep up the good work. Nice job of butchering a beautiful browser.

  • What happened to “Turbo”? It’s gone, not there.

    • Tina

      Hi! You could find it in Settings -> Browser -> Opera Turbo

  • shounen

    GIVE US GOD DAMN SYNCHRONIZATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO, your BS is NOT synch, we cannot even chose which speed dial we want return on the new system ect. zero options for backup restoration you have doing everything manual, gosh you are the worst browser…

    • Timmy

      i disagree. i am a long long time user with opera and yes there may be some minor eye candy and not have something things other major browsers have but. i never have a problem with crashes (firefox) or worry how much personal info in being taken and used/sold around (chrome). sure i would love an a full version extension of Video Download Helper. added. and a repo for Linux Debian..but im ok without My point is opera is not adding a lot of useless junk to there browser coz i believe that just slows it down and have memory issues. Opera has always been the best at making a great browser. adding practical things like VPN (very smart) without eating up all your memory (firefox). very well done! thank Opera and all developers keeping resources in mind for the best browser out there. good job Opera and Linux User for LIFE!

        What VPN? It has disappeared in the latest update in my browser.
        In the address bar, there is no icon to turn the VPN on/off, but only a lock icon with “Page information” label when hovering the cursor over it.

        Also, there is no option to turn the VPN on/on in the Privacy and security section of the Settings. There is only check box “Block ads and surf the web up to three times faster” and button “Clear browsing data” in this section.
        Please see the corresponding screenshots at this link:

    Opera is a good browser for surfing and ad blocking works very well here. This browser also works well in smartphones.

  • I am application opera back 2010. To advance via ad opera browser is a abundant idea. Opera is actual ablaze delay and beneath date customer browser. I adulation accessible my website on opera Browser.

    I’ getting a virus alert fom Avast from this:

    64 bit version I want to download, it won’t let me, then I downloaded with my smartphone and copied the file to the PC, tried to run and get the same virus alert from Avast.

    Never in 9 years have I been warned about a virus from you.

    Had to disable Avast to install it, but I still was getting messages abour treats being blocked from C:WindowsTempopera autoupdateInstaller.exe

    Tried disabling the Update from the Windows Task Manager, messages still came up.

    So I added an exception to Avast for that location, only then the messages stopped coming.

    • Przemek Kudła

      This is a false positive, but in fact, this file was placed there by a mistake. It’s not even signed, that’s why Avast sends the warning.

    As much as I still like Opera, having Turbo hidden away in advanced settings isn’t great…or kind to the less technical Opera users.

  • Opera Turbo has abolished from my Menu – is this advised or a annihilate in the latest update??

  • When will the last update come with faster speed?

  • ekoagus
  • Thanks for sharing this app, I will check out the Opera 46:

  • soitbe

    Thanks! On Windows, coming from FF, and I’m loving Opera so far. Only things I’d like to see is the ability to rearrange extension icons and an extension like TabMixPlus. Oh, and that three-finger swipe would work as it does in Chrome, Edge and FF.

  • Ariane Lu

    Tab bar’s performance is slow than old version, especially on laptop, to check it : long press Ctrl+T.

  • Jack Spider

    Opera team touts VPN as one of its major features. Howerer, VPN disappeared with the latest update in my Opera browser.

    In the address bar, there is no icon to turn the VPN on/off, but only a lock icon with “Page information” label when hovering the cursor over it.

    Also, there is no option to turn the VPN on/on in the Privacy and security section of the Settings. There is only check box “Block ads and surf the web up to three times faster” and button “Clear browsing data” in this section.

    Can someone explain to me what’s the matter with this?

  • sharada broadcasting

    good news .

    not bad


  • John Rambo

    I’m not sure if someone noticed that there is something wrong with window scaling and sidebar.

    When you grab top bar, while Opera is maximized, and start moving it, the whole window is restored and you can freely move it.

    However, when you grab the sidebar and start doing the same, you can freely move it, but window remains maximized and you cannot restore it. Minimizing or adding new tab makes window restore.

  • Christopher

    The problem maybe is the cost. You can use opera VPN with surf easy… If you pay :/

    • Jeferson Alex Becker

      That’s not true. Opera do have a built-in VPN [unlimited and free]. SurfEasy is a separated service.

      • Christopher

        I know, but maybe opera vpn maybe cost a lot for opera and they decide close it.

  • Opera is one of my fav. browser and i never use any other browser except opera even in my phone as well as in my laptop. Its a data saver browser and website open faster than other browser

    # Dear Opera developers: Can you add support for Netflix video at 1080p resolution (or higher)? This could increase Opera share in browser market.
    # Chrome, Opera and Firefox support playback of Netflix movies in 720p resolution in Win7, Win8.1 & Win10. IE11 in Win7 support only 720p (it uses Silverlight 5).
    IE11 plays Netflix movies at resolution 1080p in Win8.1 and Win10. Edge in resolution 1080p or 4K in Win10.
    # Adding 1080p or 4K in Opera would especially important for Win7 users (all browsers play Netflix video at 720p in Win7; there is no Netflix app for WIn7)
    Win7 is on 48% PCs and will be major Windows system for 5-10 years.
