Hi all,

Please take a look at what’s new in today’s, chromium 80.0.3987.7 based, build:

Sidebar setup panel

The Sidebar settings menu has been replaced with a new panel, which is opened from the three-dot icon at the bottom of your sidebar. The new panel is well-organized – making workspace and sidebar management more comfortable and intuitive. For starters, you are now able to edit or remove all of the sidebar elements individually. Starting from the top, you can customize your workspaces by adding, removing, showing or hiding them. Also, all of the Messengers are now listed.

In the Special Features group, you’ll find Opera’s features like My Flow, Instant Search, and Crypto Wallet. Opera Tools is the last category, with browser management areas like History, Downloads, and Extensions. History and Bookmarks can now be opened from either the sidebar panel or the full-page menu.

Highlight duplicate tabs on hover

We would also like to present a new way of handling many tabs. When hovering a tab, any inactive tab in the same window and workspace which has the same address is displayed.

Improved login process for Opera Synchronization

Opera Synchronization lets you synchronize your bookmarks, passwords and other Opera settings between your various Opera browsers. In this release, we are testing an improvement for signing up and logging into Opera Synchronization. You can now log into your browser from a new site in a separate tab rather than the previously-used popup. 

Although it won’t affect daily usage much, this should make it simpler for new users to join the service or to retrieve a backup when starting Opera on a new machine. The new authentication site makes the steps for signing up easier to follow, and you’re free to interrupt and resume the process using all the usual tools you have at your disposal when browsing sites in Opera.

For more details, see the full changelog.
