Opera 58.0.3111.0 developer update

Hi all,

We’ve got a fresh Opera 58 developer update for you this Monday with a new novelty in the browser.

New tab opening by middle-click

As many of you have requested, we’ve implemented opening a new tab by middle-clicking on a tab area. Now you’re able to open or close a tab using the middle-click. The difference is just where you middle-click in the tabs bar:

  • On a tab to close it
  • Next to a tab (in the empty space) to open a new one

We’ve also added a nice, new wallpaper. Check it out, along with all the other great ones!

Most important fixes:

  • Suggestions in search bar are visible now in dark mode
  • Pop-ups opened in full screen mode open in new tabs
  • Keyboard shortcuts are again displayed for options in menus
  • It’s possible to change the wallpaper from SD’s context menu again

Known issue:

  • DNA-73106 – [Win] Access denied security badge is shown even after permission request was allowed.

Enjoy, and happy Monday!

All changes are listed here.
