Opera developer 52.0.2850.0 update

Today’s developer update for Opera 52 includes some visual improvements for a few elements in our browser. We’ve added a new spinner animation and improved color shading for the address bar. Read on for the details:

New tab spinner

We would like to introduce a new tab loader animation for macOS. The tab spinner will spin around during the site loading state. Refresh some of your tabs to see how it looks now.


Color shading correction in address bar dropdown

We defined new colors for the address bar dropdown to better blend with your choice of light or dark theme for the browser. Take a look at the new colors for the highlighted cells backgrounds:

Most important fixes:

  • Crash when running installer on Windows
  • Crash on startup affecting some users
  • Improve tick image for selected wallpaper
  • Chromium version 65.0.3315.3

Changelog is available here.

Known issues:

  • Tabs on Windows 7 may become transparent.
  • Tabs in Tab Bar are invisible (black) until the cursor is placed on the tab.
