Opera 53.0.2900.0 developer update


Since spring is just around a corner, we’re doing some spring cleaning in Opera developer 53. You’ll find improvements to tabs’ display, especially with several of them opened, and some new colors for the address bar in this build.

Optimization of a tab’s display

Recently, for Mac users, it’s been difficult to find and manage a particular tab when many of them are open. We figured out a way to optimize this and make your plentiful tabs’ favicons more visible. Let’s see how it changed:

To make it even more visible, clicking on a tab will expand it to make it easier to manage.

Address bar colors

There is also some fresh , sharpened coloring done to the address bar.

Other highlights:

  • Chromium was updated to version 66.0.3355.4
  • Windows 10 bug with an empty pop-up when text is selected by a touch screen was fixed
  • Opera will install on Ubuntu 18.04, Bionic
  • Touch bar is fixed (macOS)
  • Missing translations added

Known issues:

  • Tabs previews can be broken
  • Capturing full page by Snapshot doesn’t work
  • Issues with saving as PDF
