We’re happy to introduce Opera 58 today, our first new build of 2019. There are two new features in this build.

Opera 58 will warn you before closing an Opera window with multiple tabs open. This means it will prevent you from accidentally losing the data you might have typed in when filling out forms or writing comments, or in situations where you lose all your tabs due to a “slip of the mouse.”

The confirmation dialog we added serves as a warning. If you don’t wish to see this dialog again, simply tick the checkbox titled “Do not show this warning again.”

The warning dialog won’t be shown when closing private windows.

To turn the warning back on, go to Settings > Advanced > User interface.

Further rollout of different news delivery mechanism in Russia

With this build, we continue to roll out an updated news delivery mechanism to our Russian users. We have now integrated Yandex Zen, a smart, personal news recommendation service, into our start page, replacing our previous mechanism. We have introduced it to provide our users in Russia with a better access to more personalized news. What this means for them is that they will get better news, chosen based on their preferences and browsing history. Yandex Zen uses machine-learning technology and automatically adjusts to your news preferences. You can find more information about it here. Yandex Zen has been switched on only in Russia.

The full changelog is here.
