Opera beta 53 initial release


Today, we’re transitioning Opera 53 from the developer line to beta. To start off, this beta build features revamps the appearances of tabs and the address bar. Take a glance below to learn more:

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

Address bar colors

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

Some fixes

There was an issue with favicons for bookmarks not appearing until you visit the site. This has been fixed.

Additionally, we fixed a crash caused by clicking the VPN button in the address bar after conducting a search for Mac users in Ukraine.

Chromium version 66.0.3359.45

All fixes are listed in the changelog. Enjoy!
