Hi,

Today’s developer build brings Chromecast support, adds cryptocurrencies conversions and continues bookmarks bar refactoring, which started in the last release. It also addresses the problem of session losses that happen when Opera crashes on startup, a possible occurrence in the developer channel.

Chromecast support

Chromecast is gaining popularity. Recently, Google revealed that it has sold 55 million Chromecasts, up from 30 million in July 2016. Before you can start casting, you need to enable the support first. Head to Settings (Preferences on macOS) -> Browser -> User interface and tick “Enable Chromecast support”.

To start casting YouTube videos, just click the cast icon found in the video’s player controls. Alternatively, you can select “Cast…” from the page’s context menu or from the O-Menu (Windows, Linux) or View (macOS). Opera 50 supports casting for videos, tabs and the full desktop.

Currency converter extended with cryptocurrencies

List of currencies recognized by our currency converter is extended with four popular cryptocurrencies:

  1. Bitcoin (BTC), 1.00 BTC
  2. Ethereum (ETH), 1.00 ETH
  3. Bitcoin Cash (BTH), 1.00 BCH
  4. Litecoin (LTC), 1.00 LTC

Protect your session against crashes

Upon a crash loop detection, Opera will not remove your current browsing session. Instead, all pages will be marked for manual reload upon re-activation, except for the current tab which will detail the encountered problem. This will fix the annoying problem of losing all opened tabs due to an unrelated problem such as with syncing, for instance.

Of course, it’s worth noting the following fixes:

  • [Win] rusradio.ua, hitfm.ua players didn’t play music.
  • [Mac, High Sierra] Fix for Netflix’s error message “Whoops, something went wrong…” .

Chromium version 63.0.3230.0

Check changelog for the full report.

Known issues

  • [Chromecast][Linux] Opera crashes during casting desktop.
  • [Chromecast][Mac] Extension remains red even when casting.

    Hi Maciej, thanks for the new update, and fixes 😉

    New flags:
    – opera:flags#save-previous-document-resources-until
    Saves an old document's cached resources until the specified point in the next document's lifecycle.

    – opera:flags#omnibox-ui-swap-title-and-url (seems to be Chromium specific for now)
    In the omnibox dropdown, shows titles before URLs when both are available.

    – opera:flags#enable-password-selection
    Show a password selector and an eye icon in prompt.

    – opera:flags#enable-html-base-username-detector
    Use HTML-based username detector for the password manager.

    – opera:flags#enable-new-preconnect
    Enable the new implementation of preconnect and DNS preresolve. "Learning" means that only database construction is enabled, "Preconnect" enables both learning and preconnect and disables the existing implementation. "No preconnect" disables both implementations.

  • MrEasy

    Ah thanks for fixing the http2 issue (workaround –disable-http2 not needed anymore) 🙂

  • Hans Hansen

    Conversions have a black font color: https://abload.de/img/blackfont22a2j.png

    • We’re already on it (DNA-65030)…

  • Stanislav Stratil

    Wasnt there an option to use colored titlebar on Windows 10? Because all I can get is dark or white theme. I remember that there was an option to follow Windows 10 color scheme… was this discontinued?

    • Nekomajin43

      It was removed when they released the Reborn madness, despite many user complaints.

      • Stanislav Stratil

        Thanks for answer, such a shame though.

  • Eugene B.

    Thank you for the update guys!
    This build starts slowly comparing to the previous one. Plus it always shows me bookmark bar on a browser startup, even if I disabled it on a previous session.

    • Arjan van Leeuwen

      Which OS are you on?

      • Eugene B.

        Windows 10 v1709 x64.

        • Der Herr Nick

          Same problem here, also on Win 10 v1709 x64.

      • Eugene B.

        Opera starts normally now, it was some temporary bug I think. Now the only problem is bookmark bar on every startup.

    • tux

      With linux Opera Developer seems much more faster than Vivaldi.

    • MadEddy

      I also have the bookmark bar showing up but not at start up. It happens whenever I bookmark a tab. I’m on windows 10 1709 x64 like you.

  • Matheus Bombonato

    “adds cryptocurrencies conversions”
    This is beautiful! Thanks A LOT!

    • Glad you like it 🙂

      • Nekomajin43

        It’s perfect time to compile a list of supported currencies, units and date formats. Not in a post of a build, but on a separate page, possibly in the Help.

    Still waiting for a REST API for accessing and managing bookmarks…

    suggestion;
    1-The size of the downloadable file can be previewed as information
    2-Page tab ; Enable/Disable always on top
    3-Video downloader
    4- Torrent download support

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Keep repeating your request won’t make it happen sooner or even happen at all. 🙂

      1) How Opera would get the info on file size before start downloading it?
      2) Although I probably won’t use it, an option to enable/disable tab bar could be interesting. And what ‘always on top’ would do in this case?
      3) Most sites doesn’t allow downloading of videos so implementing such thing may cause problems to Opera
      4) I don’t see such thing happening. Opera had a torrent client in the past and it never really worked as should. Not to mention all the problems of torrents mostly being related to download of ilegal content.

      • Nekomajin43

        You really should think about that first sentence. We know you are rabid when it comes to Opera, but mocking someone for making feature requests is a bad habit.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, i think that someone keep doing copy and paste of his/her request(s) on (almost) every single post is an even more bad habit. It usually remembers me of a child trying to get something by insistently disturbing the patience of the parents until they give way.

          • Nekomajin43

            It seems the only way to get anything through. Developers should answer these requests, each of them. They want us to write use cases, even for simple or well known requests, but they do not take time to reason or explain why something won’t happen.

            I am one of the very few people who sometimes get a proper answer here, and it’s not because of being nice. I am stupid enough to push what I want to know, and it seems to be the only way to achieve anything.

            If this bothers you, well, tough luck.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Do you really believe in it? Well, I don’t.
            I think some people just gives a better support for what is being requested, showing their reasons for something to be implemented.

          • Nekomajin43

            Well, use cases are always prefered, but the devs should ask for it, instead of ignoring the request.

          Right, but that dialog only popped up because you started the download by clicking on the download link.
          Anyway, that would be something interesting to have.

  • Hans Hansen

    I noticed a highlighting inconsistency between hovering over a folder in the bookmarks bar and hovering over a bookmark: https://abload.de/img/hlbookmarkvgs8jv8u5m.png
    There’s also a color inconsistency between bookmarks without favicons and bookmark folders: https://abload.de/img/incjoz0j.png

    Hi team, starting with the previous Dev build I get NSL with Google sheets

    • Hans Hansen

      It’s a known issue, temporary fix is to disable: opera://flags/#browser-side-navigation

      • Кostadin

        Thank you!

  • Hans Hansen

    I am not able to drag a tab onto the bookmarks bar.
    Win10x64 v1709.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, you can drag the icon (Page information) to the left of the URL to the BB, or click the URL to highlight it, then drag it to the BB 😉

      • Hans Hansen

        Yes, it works. Thank you very much.
        Nevertheless it is a regression bug. 🙂

        • L33t4opera

          You’re welcome. Seems to not be, since it was already mentioned, that the BB is refactored.

          • Hans Hansen

            What do you mean? Refactoring does certainly not mean make it less functional. It is a regression for sure. Dragging a tab is much easier than any other workaround you mentioned (to hit a very small icon is not that comfortable e.g.)

          • L33t4opera

            I mean, that this is a work in progress, and therefore some parts of the old solution might be not implemented for the time being.

          • Hans Hansen

            I know that and I have no problem if something is work in progress. It was just a reminder for the devs to implement this function again, because it would be regression. 🙂

  • Nekomajin43

    Guys, I’d like to ask you to fill a survey to somehow quantify the feature requests: https://goo.gl/forms/RtwV9af9Ot3I7waB2

    We are almost at 350 answers! Thanks for everyone who participated.

    Already implemented features from the list:
    – bookmarks export
    – expanding the number of recently closed tabs in the tab menu
    – unit converter
    – screen capture tool

    Currently being implemented:
    – the ability to rearrange extension icons

    New requests on the list:
    – capture full page (not just the visible area)
    – inline translator in the search popup
    – paste option in the search popup (in editable fields)

    If you have already submitted your votes, just open the link again, and you can vote for the new additions.

    I know it’s not representative, but it may help to show the trends and the top most wanted features. We’ve got some positive words from the devs, no promises though.

    If you find anything missing from the list, please comment here or in the forum: https://forums.opera.com/discussion/1883544/opera-browser-feature-survey

    • Really nice survey! A better native password management would be a great feature to add to the survey. I think it’s not too much work and add much more security for the users, besides that the extensions do not work too well in my opinion.

      • Nekomajin43

        Would you explain what exactly you mean by better? I can add it to the list, if we can make it a concrete shape.

        • Yeah, sure! Today we have some place to save our passwords, but we do not have a native tool to generate random passwords and save/update it for us. Just that would be really helpful! Furthermore would be nice have more option (no autocomplete, autologin, CTRL + ENTER for login like we had in Presto) and some improvements in how manage these passwords, having the option to organize the passwords like we do in bookmarks. After I deleted my stored passwords on Opera servers by accident I started to use LastPass to manage my passwords, but the integration is made by an extension and it doesn’t work so well and I also don’t like the interface.

          Another point to improve is about our data on the servers: I don’t know how to change my master password and neither my username, for instance.

          • Nekomajin43

            I don’t think a random password generator would be a good idea. In fact, random strings are very bad passwords. For the computer, it does not matter whether the string actually means anything, but it’s hard to remember for the user. You should choose passwords, which are easy to remember, but contain many kind of characters. L33t speech is a good point to start.

            By no autocomplete you mean to save the password, but do not fill the login field on page load?

            Autologin could be handy.

            Why do you want to organize the passwords? What’s the point of putting them in folders?

          • I don’t really agree with you. I agree with you that random strings are not the best password, but they are the most secure. If you really care about security – I have some concern about it – you should have one different password for each account and with a certain minimum number of characters. In some cases to generate your password the website even ask for some special characters. That’s the point for the password generator. You don’t care about your password, you don’t need to remember it and you have many secure passwords different for each account – or just in whatever account you want.

            “By no autocomplete you mean to save the password, but do not fill the login field on page load?”
            Yes! Just to explain why I think this option is a must have:
            When you fill up the inputs without submit the form, is possible to get your password by two ways on the developer tool:
            1. Get the value of the input by the script “document.getElementById(‘id-of-the-input’).value”
            2. Inspect the password field with the developer tools and change its type to from “password” to “text”.
            I know it’s hard someone know that, but I wouldn’t keep my computer unblocked in a public place, even more if it is my working computer.

            “Autologin could be handy.”
            I think we have a deal here. I just saw that Opera has an option “Automatic sign-in”, but I couldn’t make it work.

            “Why do you want to organize the passwords? What’s the point of putting them in folders?”
            It’s not really a must have, but would be something cool to make Opera even more useful than other browsers. Generally password managers has that and the option to share passwords.

          • Nekomajin43

            You can use a few unique characters in each password, something, which reminds you to the given site. The password you don’t remember is the worst password.

            The no autocomplete thing does not make any sense, IMHO, because if someone wants to read it from the devtools, it can be filled manually, and then read from the console.

            The autologin feature seems to be broken. (It can be because of the saved and the actual URL does not exactly match, but it’s just a guess.)

            Sharing passwords is a serious security concern. I don’t think it would be wise to go to that direction.

          • 1. It’s hard to ensure that you are not going to forget any password. And if you don’t use a password often, you are going to forget it anyway.

            2. It’s not something really necessary, but I would like to have control about it.

            3. I didn’t investigate it once it’s the developer channel. I will try on the stable channel.

            4. It could be just like a plus, but not a must. It’s helpful for companies that need to share account passwords.

          • Nekomajin43

            You have to choose a password you can remember. There are articles on the internet about how to construct a good and strong password, which you can remember. You should look it up, because storing and sharing passwords are major security problems.

      I would like to. But I don’t know what I must do beside enabling the small box. Must I buy a new tv first?

      • Przemek Kudła

        You need the Google Chromecast device. You plug it in a HDMI input in your TV set and that’s all.

    • fearphage

      I use it 4 or 5 times a day but mostly by voice or phone. Funny thing is I’m watching a Google presentation right now (Chrome Dev Summit) and I went to chromecast it so I could eat lunch in another room, but the option wasn’t there. I googled for a fix and found this blog post.

    • INFINUM

      Ок, not two. Four people.

        If you like, you can tell me a feature you use all the time and I can assess how important it is to me.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    I just had a funny experience: I opened a user’s profile in a second Facebook tab and wanted to watch the photos and videos. When I clicked on a video, the tab was closed. I could repeat this three or four times, then it worked as wanted. With all videos. After surfing through some other tabs I returned to the Facebook tab and did the same. Again a click on a video closed the tab. 🙂

    (2) Cache + cookies aren’t always deleted totally, using eg. chromes “chrome://settings/clearBrowserData”. There remains pickings (= more than standard) in user-profile, above all in folder Cache + GPUCache. Cookies similar, sometimes.
    only windows versions.
    linux: after deleting, there are no pickings (cache + cookies). as it should be.

  • Brandon Siegel

    Opera Developer for Mac 50.0.2753.0 – there’s definitely no option to enable Chromecast support in Preferences (looked where the screenshot indicated and also used the search to no avail), and no Cast option in the page context menu.

    • Mikolaj Boc

      Oh. Could you please try launching opera with –with-feature:media-router=on switch?

      • Brandon Siegel

        Surprisingly, that did not change anything. Still no option appearing in the Preferences and no Cast entry in the page context menu.

        I also tried re-downloading Opera Developer from the website, and using a fresh profile with –user-data-dir= but still no luck.

      • fearphage

        I’m on Linux (50.0.2753.0) and I’m not seeing the option either. Tried with with suggested flag and a new profile. The option is still not available.

    • danburrito

      Same.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, if you want you can try the following steps:
      1. Go to opera:about, make a note of the path to the profile, and close the Opera,
      2. Navigate to the folder from the path, and make a copy of the “Local State” file – in case you can’t find it, follow the additional steps to unhide hidden files on Mac (if something goes wrong in the next step, you can revert the original file from the copy),
      3. Open the file in your text editor, search for “country”, and change the values of country and country_from_server from “XX” to e.g. “GB” as shown below:”country”:”GB”,”country_from_server”:”GB”,Save the changes, close the file, run the Opera, and see if the option is available now.

      • Brandon Siegel

        Yes, this worked! Can you explain what the issue was?

        • L33t4opera

          Hi, it looks like this feature is not available in all countries for now. As far as I know, it should be accessible globally in the future.

  • Hetai-Na

    You should improve the address bar. You can take some ideas from Cliqz browser, and maybe Yandex Browser.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Improve how?

      • Hetai-Na

        When you type “Montreal Weather” for example, Opera could give you the weather, like it gives you the result of simple math problems.

        When you click the address bar, it could show the most popular websites for example, or favorites, like Safari does.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Isn’t it done by Google?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Opera used to show some suggestions when you clicked on the address bar but it seems that people didn’t like it.

    • tux

      I think that most Opera users want more lines to address bar as like in Vivaldi.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        More lines? For what exactly?

      I didn’t knew that it’s _actually_ being refactored?

    • Hans Hansen

      Can’t you see the new animation when clicking a bookmark? 😛
      Maybe the refactoring is just under the hood? (e.g. “DNA-63655 Rewrite bookmarks bar on Windows – implementation” from last dev version)

    • Arjan van Leeuwen

      “Code refactoring is the process of restructuring existing computer code—changing the factoring—without changing its external behavior.” –https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_refactoring

      • xirit64

        Oh, thanks 🙂

        P.S. Though I would like to see a bookmark bar being able to be put to the side 😉

  • Rudric

    Let’s mention it: Sidebar….. <———– there 🙂

  • xirit64

    As I don’t use the sidebar at all (only if I could put the bookmarks bar to the side I would use it), but would like to switch to Bookmarks directly from a webpage, how difficult would it be to put the Bookmarks icon next to the Speed Dial one? (left of the address bar) It can’t be beaten by anything else, it’s direct, it’s easy, it’s fast, it’s always there.

  • Tratsing

    Hello,
    is is possible to replace the colour of pop-up currency converter? I think that the main purpose of it is to see the target currency but showing the target currency in black and the source currency in white on a grey background (I have Opera’s black theme enabled) puts all the attention to source currency. Switching colour preference puts the attention to target currency as the source currency has already got attention when seeing it in original text.

    Very high memory and processor usage. (over 5GB). But I don’t know yet if that’s caused by Windows 10 Fall update I just did today before Opera update.

    • Hans Hansen

      Six tabs open = 1 GB RAM usage (x64 version of Opera on v1709)
      I don’t know if it is much, MS Edge uses 800 MB with the same tabs opened.

      • Tratsing

        So, Edge is more RAM friendly browser.

      • Marko Koivuniemi

        I know that unused memory is useless memory but compared to previous build I think developer is a bit sluggish. I think I can confirm also in macOS High Sierra. In Windows processor usage was almost 30% and it’s a lot in my (quite old but still) quad core (8 hyperthread core) system.

        • Hans Hansen

          I use an old i5-3317U @ 1.7 Ghz (2C/4T) and the cpu usage is about 0,5-5% in idle mode, about 10% when scrolling a page and up to 60% when opening a new tab (both stable and dev). Idk, but I think it is a usual behaviour…(Win10 v1709)

        • Sebastian

          If it really is Win10 the problem can be caused by the custom settings of DPI – 1.7x (170%). As far as I can see standard values of DPI on Win10 are the following ones: … 150%, 175%, 200% …
          @derherrnick:disqus can you try with 175% DPI?

    How about Netflix fix for Linux?

    Uses 60% CPU on an i7 4670K, consistently. With only this page open, it also eats 950Mb of RAM. There’s 7 Opera processes, with one using 35% and 650mb and another one the other 25% and 101mb. The others are between 60 and 10mb and consume 2% or so.
    I don’t have any extensions installed. Tried to quit and open again a couple of times. Also tried just waiting, but it doesn’t end (btw there’s still the “loading” circle on this page after 10 minutes).

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

    • I also run Opera Dev on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (b1709) x64 (i7 4700K). Opera does not use high CPU in my system. But, you’re right, RAM usage is higher than normal!

    • Leo Lozes

      I think the culprit is the Facebook Messenger panel of the sidebar.
      I closed session and the CPU went down instantly.

  • AndreaOperator

    I would like to report an issue.

    I just got back home, opened Opera and suddenly I noticed that my PC started somehow ‘freezing’. So, I checked Task Manager and saw that Opera was overusing CPU and the upload speed was at its highest limit. There is no other opened tab, just the Start Page.

    After digging around, I found out that the issue was caused by Messenger sidebar app and there is a connection to edge-star-shv-01-amt2.facebook.com (31.13.64.16). I removed Messenger from sidebar and everything went back to normal. Please, consider this problem and fix it. I need Messenger in my sidebar and really want Opera browser behave normally.

    Best regards!

    Glad you like it 🙂

    Really nice survey! A better native password management would be a great feature to add to the survey. I think it’s not too much work and add much more security for the users, besides that the extensions do not work too well in my opinion.

  • Luis A. Rosario

    – Is really annoying every time I press bookmarks heart, The “bookmarks bar” appears without enable the checkbox opera://settings/; dunno if It’s a new feature.

    – I desagree change shortcut keys “CTRL+F12” for open settings to ALT+P, It was a bad idea so… You must rollback this change.

    – Huge memory leaks, My PC has 8 GB RAM and Opera display “low memory warnings”

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      CTRL-F12 is still working here. W10x64, Operax64

      • Luis A. Rosario

        Yes; my mistake, I was running screen recorder soft that use ctrl+f12 as stop-rec hotkey.

        Btw, RAM leak is an issues on many sites (eg. FB)

    • Вадік Дудар

      i noticed that opera.exe (2 processes) always active and use CPU and RAM up to 80%.
      (Opera Developer). Beta and stable looks fine. I think somebody try to mine some coins on our PC 🙁
      After clean install Opera developer Problem still actual…

  • DaZung

    Starting with this build i’m getting erratic behavior when clicking on links / speeddials with the middle mouse button, to open pages in background.

    Sometimes nothing opens, sometimes two pages open and sometimes the page opens in foreground.

    I checked on Edge and on the previous build and behavior is normal, so the problem is not in my mouse.

    • This is not a new feature, if i’m not wrong. And I can open speeddials in tabs by clicking mouse scroll whell.

  • DaZung

    One thing I think is really missing in Opera is an easy way to skip a build and revert to a previous one. Maybe a button in “About Opera”?

    • Ariane Lu

      That’s not a good idea because old releases may contain security problem. And you can install two version of Opera, stable release for work or backup, developer edition for test or primary use

  • Sergey Pirogov

    1. bookmarks bar is appeared every time, but in Settings it is disabled – how I can switch it off forever?
    2. when I’m trying to reopen last closed tab I create new speed dial folder because position of menu option was changed and I click on the same place in menu habitually

    • Hans Hansen

      1. known bug
      2. I cannot follow you, there’s even a separating line between those two options.

    • ͕͗F͕͕͗͗i͕͕͗͗n͕͕͗͗d͕͕͗͗u͕͕͗͗s͕͗

      1. <- this is very disturbing. I will use firefox until this is fixed.

    • Springer

      I’m a creature of habit, i generate way too many speed dials now 🙂

  • MrM

    nrk.no works again 🙂

    youtube/vimeo doesnt start playback though 🙁
    just preload some part of the video and then stalls…

  • ManOnTheBorder

    It’s no longer possible to add bookmarks by dragging a tab onto the bookmarks bar. Is this bug already known to you?

    Chromecast option is not showing up on my Opera Developer version 50.0.2753.0 on Windows 10 1709 Build 16299.19

  • Ariane Lu

    https://redir.opera.com/surveys/?version=50.0.2753.0&uuid=

    The link opened after start opera not work, got error “This site can’t be reached”, and got 404 with curl.
    Also, i suggest display error detail like chrome, the message says that site not work isn’t help at all, i can’t figure out it’s client issue or server side issue at all.

    • x a

      ad issue #1: Same here.

  • Ariane Lu

    Did not see any options about chrome case, i’m using correct version on Windows 10 Version 1709

  • fearphage

    I’m seeing a consistent freeze/crash from ctrl-tab’ing through tabs. Verified on two computers. Both running Ubuntu 17.04.

  • Вадік Дудар

    Why opera consume so many resourses for currency converter? I noticed that opera.exe try many times connect to bank and coin sites. Older versions without currency converter works fine.
    So i think developers must add an option in settings for disabling this feature.
    Also, where gone #lazy session loading only visible tabs? I understand when ‘opera turbo’ is enabled, tabs are freezed, and only visible – loading. But i want to disable turbo and have ability to set this flag on. because some sites won`t work with turbo… and my 20+ tabs begin loading at same time when i restart browser.
    And please, do something like ‘opera turbo economy meter’ like in mobile version.

    • Nekomajin43

      @xenon16k:disqus Another vote for classic lazy loading…

  • Balcis

    bookmarks bar keeps pinning itself after adding a page to bookmarks or some random action I couldn’t define yet.

    • Even if you disable it, it will appear again soon.
      Most annoying bug of the year 🙂

      • Ralf Brinkmann

        I’m nightmaring of bookmark bars.

      • Balcis

        And no keyboard shortcut to disable, OMG!

    • Rad

      My bookmarks bar keeps forcing itself open after closing it.

  • Charles Falconer

    Chromecast support isn’t showing up for me in the US. Changing my country location in Local State to Great Britain does make it show up, but also unfortunately causes all websites to go from .com to .co.uk. =(

    • fearphage

      Did you change your country on a website (like youtube) or did you change it somewhere else?

  • modemjunkie

    I am using 50.0.2753.0 Update stream: developer System: Windows 7 64-bit.
    I have noticed that when I “save to pdf” from the context menu, the file saves but Opera crashes and reopens. When it does, none of the previously open tabs are there.

    • Hans Hansen

      Can’t confirm on Win10x64. Any specific website or every website?

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Just interesting: how did you make that choice of banks to get info from: the ECB and bank .gov.ua? Seeing my browser trying to reach a Ukrainian bank website was so unusual I even thought I had contracted a malware. Coinmarket .com added to that suspicion. I hope web requests from Russian-locale browsers converging at a UA bank are not going to be considered as The Russian Hackers’ trick. 😉

    Hight CPU load when i change open tabs by ctl+tab.
    CPU – Core i7-4712MQ, OS – ubuntu 16.04 unity, Kernel 4.12

  • Eugene B.

    High CPU usage on Facebook.
    Anyone with the same problem?
    P.S. Windows 10 v1709 x64.

    • Robert

      Same

    • Dmitry Kirin

      Yeah, same here. Page loads, and after a few seconds, the tab sort of hangs up, and even closing it takes some seconds.

  • L33t4opera

    New build – Opera developer 50.0.2759.0 😉

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Ups, together with the new beta? Good! I was afraid we had to wait another two days.

  • molesto

    I just tested the Chromecast in Dev Version: 50.0.2759.0 It works as a charm!
    When we can get that released to the stable version?!
    Awesome guys! Thanks!
