Greetings one and all,
We’re pleased to announce that Opera 74 is now released on the Stable branch! Just restart your Opera browser to get the update, or go to Update & Recovery in the top-left O menu. Here are some of the updates and additions you’ll find in Opera 74.
Tab Snoozing to save memory
Tab Snoozing has been added to Opera 74, and is enabled by default. This means that tabs you are not actively using will pause so as not to use up your computer’s memory. Each tab will become active again when you return to it. This feature can be turned off in Settings > User Interface.
Easy Files presents more files
The Easy Files feature lets you attach files without digging through folders. When attaching a file to an email or anywhere online, the Easy Files popup will display your most recently downloaded files. The visual display of files makes it quick and easy to see and click exactly what you want.
Previously, Easy Files would display your three most recent files, but with this update you can now see all of your downloaded files. Just use the scroll buttons to cycle through them.
Easy Files feedback
Since we first added the Easy Files feature to our browser, you have sent us a lot of useful suggestions via email and on Opera forums. So to help improve this feature further, we’ve added a feedback popup to Easy Files.
Just click the little smiley face when using Easy Files. In the popup, you’ll be able to rate the feature as well as leave any comments or suggestions you have. We appreciate the feedback, which helps us improve our products for you.
Search Tabs is more organized
Search Tabs is a list of your tabs, both open and recently-closed. It helps you find a specific tab by typing keywords. Click the magnifying glass icon in the top right, or press Ctrl+Space, then start typing a keyword to identify the tab. The list updates and narrows down your options as you type.
This release includes many other small changes, fixes, improvements and tweaks. Chromium is updated to version 88.0.4324.104.
