Opera Changelog

New in version 30.0 Build 1820.0 Dev

April 1st, 2015
  • This release introduces real tab cycling and an improved tab menu.

New in version 29.0 Build 1795.26 Beta (April 1st, 2015)

  • This build has updated Chromium to version 42.0.2311.60, and includes a couple of fixes.

New in version 29.0 Build 1795.26 Beta (March 25th, 2015)

  • We fixed some bugs and updated to Chromium version 42.0.2311.50.

New in version 30.0 Build 1812.0 Dev (March 24th, 2015)

  • For this release we will continue to work on our extension sidebar implementation (already 20 sidebar extensions have appeared). We are also working to improve the features hidden behind various flags that have yet to be enabled. As always, there will be more information on those features when we set the flags to be on. As always with the first release in a cycle, we have bumped Chromium by a major version (to 43.0.2327.5).

New in version 29.0 Build 1795.21 Beta (March 20th, 2015)

  • Now, you can easily sync your Speed Dial entries and open tabs between different devices. You can assign your own keyboard shortcuts. And, we added an audio indicator to help you find which tab is blasting sound.
  • Sync Speed Dial entries and open tabs:
  • See open tabs from your other devices directly from the start page. At the bottom of the start page, click Tabs. This brings up a nice overview of your browser’s open tabs and open tabs on other devices signed into your Opera account. On the sidebar, click the device’s name to see its open tabs.
  • We updated the look of Speed Dial and included an option to change an entry’s thumbnail using the heart menu. You can easily access and manage Speed Dial entries from other devices using the bookmark manager. Click Other Speed Dials in the sidebar.
  • We also added a quick way to access your history directly from the start page and gave the history page a fresher look.
  • Customize your keyboard shortcuts:
  • You can set almost any browser command to your own keyboard shortcut combination in the settings page. Click Browser on the sidebar. Under Shortcuts, click the Configure shortcuts button. Then, start customizing how you use Opera. For example, you can set F1 to “Paste and go" and quickly get to the site you copied into your clipboard.
  • See which tab is playing audio:
  • Does it ever happen to you that you open a browser session and one or more tabs is blasting sound? It used to be a hassle to discover the culprit, so we added an audio indicator. Now, there is no problem finding the tab blaring audio at full volume.
  • Other improvements:
  • More mouse gestures
  • Centered standalone images

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.48 (March 18th, 2015)

  • We had a peculiar issue where you could kill the bookmark manager by cutting and pasting. We have now fixed this issue, so you can safely cut and paste bookmarks without breaking the bookmarks manager.

New in version 29.0 Build 1795.14 Dev (March 17th, 2015)

  • Today’s update to developer starts the process of stabilization—to bring it up to beta quality. As you would therefore expect, all changelog entries are bugfixes rather than major feature improvements. In addition we have upgraded Chromium to 42.0.2311.11.

New in version 29.0 Build 1795.0 Dev (March 11th, 2015)

  • A slightly smaller update today, with 34 fixes and improvements

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.40 (March 10th, 2015)

  • Bookmark syncing is here! Following the release of shareable, visual bookmarks, today we’re giving you Opera 28, which allows you to sync bookmarks across computers, phones and tablets.
  • Synchronization has been one of the top priorities on our feature list, and it’s been one of the most requested features. So, we’re excited to take the first step in bringing you a complete data-syncing experience. We hope you like our new, improved synchronization feature.
  • How to sync bookmarks:
  • Bookmark synchronization is available on Opera for computers, Opera Mini for iOS and Opera for Android. Opera synchronizes bookmarks across all your devices, merging bookmarks from each device you sign in with. To use this option, click the sync icon or select Settings from the main menu; then, create an Opera account or sign into your existing one.
  • Sync bookmarks for a seamless experience:
  • In a recent study, we found that surfing frequency and preferences for content are very similar across devices. The percentage of Opera for computers users who are active at least five days a week is only slightly higher than the percentage of those users who browse with Opera on mobile, with mobile users more active during weekends. A key finding is that users tend to look for the same content on different devices, which is where the ability to sync bookmarks can enhance the browsing experience. You can check out more findings from this study in this post.
  • Can I sync other data??:
  • We are still working on a full synchronization solution. We’ve started with bookmarks, and additional data-synchronization options will be implemented in phases. Stay tuned, as we are working hard to release them soon.
  • What does Opera 28 offer?:
  • We’ve incorporated bookmarks into the search suggestions in the combined search and address bar. Opera 28 also brings a better integration with Mac OS, as “vibrancy” of the address field and improved Mac fullscreen mode have been added. Last, but not least, we’ve updated a bundled themes selection, to give you a fresh look for your start page.

New in version 29.0 Build 1794.0 Dev (March 6th, 2015)

  • Today we have a very interesting update to our developer channel, with almost 150 fixes and improvements and an update to Chromium (42.0.2305.3). The three major changes in this build are support for new sidebar extensions, updates to Speed Dial and keyboard shortcut customization.
  • Our new sidebar:
  • What are sidebar extensions?
  • As the name suggests, sidebar extensions are extensions which can be installed into our new sidebar. The sidebar can be enabled via the menu or a keyboard shortcut...
  • Windows:
  • Opera menu → Extensions → Sidebar (Ctrl+⇧Shift+s)
  • Mac:
  • View → Show sidebar (⌘⇧s)
  • On the left hand side of the sidebar, you have an icons list associated with the sidebar extensions. Clicking on an icon will open the extension in a panel on the right hand side.
  • Here are a few sample sidebar extensions for you to try out and to get a feel for what is possible:
  • Browse++ Sidebar (search open tabs, reopen closed tabs, make notes!)
  • Hackernews Sidebar (keep up to date with Hackernews)
  • Techmeme Sidebar (displays Techmeme in a panel)
  • TollSjekk (calculate private imports to Norway)
  • For Extension Authors:
  • We’ve purposely based sidebar extensions on the browserAction API, so that it is easy to understand and easy to convert existing extensions which use the browserAction API to a sidebar extension. Sidebar extensions have access to all the different extension APIs that browserAction extensions do. Please go ahead and read the documentation for sidebar extensions for detailed information on the API.
  • When creating sidebar extensions, please keep in mind that they are better suited to use-cases not tied to one particular website—the extension should work almost like a standalone app (adjusting and responding to the current webpage if required).
  • In addition to our official developer relations documentation, Daniel (from the desktop team) has written his own guide to quickly making sidebar extensions. Using it, you can convert your (or others’) webapps to sidebar extensions. The guide links to a nice little template (on GitHub). Tweak one file, add your own icons, zip it and ship it.
  • Go ahead and create a sidebar extension for a number of interesting cases – let your imagination fly!
  • Speed Dial improvements:
  • Speed Dial has undergone a lot of work of lately, with some visual changes and integration with bookmarks. Your Speed Dial is now a folder within bookmarks, resulting in various improvements:
  • Your Speed Dial on one device is now accessible from any of your other devices (via bookmark synchronization)
  • Speed Dial thumbnails can be changed via the “Heart menu”
  • Speed Dial entries on any device can be managed via the bookmark manager (drag and drop entries between Speed Dial and your other folders)
  • Of course, we understand that Speed Dial is a little different from bookmarks, as it also serves as the new tab page. Depending on your device and location (e.g., home versus work), you may want to display different links on this prime real estate. Hence the default Speed Dial is specific to the device, but you can easily access your other Speed Dials via an entry in the bookmark manager.
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts:
  • Last but not least, we have added the ability to customize your keyboard shortcuts. Don’t need Opera help on a daily basis? Don’t waste that F1 key, recycle it as “Reopen last closed tab” or any other action you find yourself doing regularly!

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.36 Beta (March 2nd, 2015)

  • Funky and fresh build from the stabilization branch brings a number of bugfixes and has an updated Chromium to the version of 41.0.2272.74. It also includes two other Chromium updates, that didn’t make to any public beta build of Opera. For more details head to the changelog at the bottom of the post. Happy browsing!

New in version 29.0 Build 1788.0 Dev (February 27th, 2015)

  • We have added a new way to view your open tabs, accessible via the start page. Simply click on the entry which is currently titled “Activity”. From there you, each of your synced devices will be listed. Now, click on any device name to see its list of open tabs.

New in version 29.0 Build 1785.0 Dev (February 24th, 2015)

  • Today’s developer build includes a update to our mouse gestures, adding back three useful gestures that trigger when clicking links.
  • Open link in a new tab (Down)
  • Open link in a new window (Shift + Down)
  • Open link in a new background tab (Ctrl + Down or Down + Up)
  • In case you aren’t familiar with mouse gestures, they work by holding the right mouse button, moving the mouse a certain direction, then letting go of the button.
  • To help new users to find out more about mouse gestures, Opera now shows a sliding toolbar when performing a gesture for the first time. It explains that a gesture was detected and links to a help page documenting all the others.
  • If you feel there are other gestures that are missing, please let us know. We make no promises that we will implement all the suggestions but we are always interested in what can help you navigate faster.

New in version 27.0 Build 1689.76 (February 24th, 2015)

  • This stable release improves stabilization and performance of the browser.

New in version 29.0 Build 1781.0 Dev (February 20th, 2015)

  • Today’s update includes a small (but frequently requested) tweak to how we display links to images. Previously they left aligned and now they are centered. So no more turning your head hard left, when viewing images on your wide screen monitor!

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.31 Beta (February 19th, 2015)

  • Today we have a couple of stability bug fixes and chromium updated to version 41.0.2272.53 for Opera 28.

New in version 29.0 Build 1778.0 Dev (February 17th, 2015)

  • This release is mainly about bug fixes and small improvements. A few common crashes found via our automated crash logging tool have also been resolved.
  • One minor, visual change you might notice is to the share dialog, which now better represents the bookmarks you are sharing with others.

New in version 29.0 Build 1773.0 Dev (February 13th, 2015)

  • The latest developer releases of Opera included some new styling for internal pages. We’ve updated the history page to match. That means your history benefits by having a navigation bar and the crisp looks of our bookmark manager.
  • And, speaking of the navigation bar, we added a link to your history on our internal pages: Bookmarks, Speed Dial and the Discover feature. Click the History button on the far right to quickly return to pages you left or accidentally closed.
  • As always, we fixed several bugs and updated Chromium. It’s now at version 42.0.2292.0, so you are equipped to handle bleeding-edge web sites and apps.

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.21 Beta (February 12th, 2015)

  • Today we have updated Chromium to version 41.0.2272.43 and fixed several other issues, for example using the wrong search engine in private windows and (no longer) an empty Accept Language list in the settings. Translations should now also be more complete, as we received a batch of fresh strings recently.
  • Friendly reminder, this is a stabilization branch, so don’t expect new things here – this is purely for stabilization which means; bugfixing, Chromium intakes and testing. A detailed list of changes is available at the bottom of this post, in our changelog. Have fun testing, and try to not eat too much today or next week (whenever you are celebrating “Fat Thursday”)!

New in version 27.0 Build 1689.69 (February 11th, 2015)

  • We updated Chromium to 40.0.2214.111 and made some other under-the-hood improvements. Of note, we fixed a bug where some secure sites failed to load on Mac. We recommended this update for stability and better site compatibility.

New in version 29.0 Build 1770.1 Dev (February 10th, 2015)

  • Opera beta recently updated to version 28, so Opera developer moves on to version 29. Today’s most visual updates are related to tabs. It is now possible to access your recently visited tabs from other devices (using sync technology) and we have also added sound notification to the tab favicon.
  • Sync open tabs between devices:
  • As the next logical step in syncing, the recent tabs list now includes your other devices. You can just click an entry from another of your computers. Great for picking up where you left off, without the need to bookmark a page. On Windows and Linux (non Unity) is is accessible via “Opera menu → Recent tabs“. On Mac and Linux (Unity) you can find the list under “History → Recent tabs“.
  • Sound notification icon on tabs:
  • Videos and sound are ever more common on the internet. Although this is generally a good thing, sometimes it can be annoying, especially if one of your background tabs is playing something your don’t want to hear. Via a small animation over the favicon, you can now quickly locate any tab that is making a noise.

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.15 Beta (February 5th, 2015)

  • Opera beta 28 includes a number of interesting improvements, particularly regarding bookmarks. For example, you can now sync your bookmarks between computers and/or Android phones, and get bookmark suggestions when you type in the address field.
  • We made some nice Mac changes, such as significantly smaller installation packages and better integration with MacOS 10.10 (Yosemite).
  • In addition, we refreshed our bundled themes and updated Chromium to version 41.0.2272.35 for even better website compatibility.
  • Bookmarks, syncing and other improvements:
  • You can share your bookmarks between multiple devices: any computer running Opera beta 28 or phones with Opera for Android beta 28. We have been working on this feature for some time in our developer channel. Today, the quality has earned the feature a “beta” label.
  • If you want to try syncing, click on the Opera account button (to the right of the address field) and sign into your Opera account. Do this on all your devices and you’ll see your bookmarks everywhere!
  • We also made some small improvements to the bookmark manager. One frequent request was to incorporate bookmarks into the search suggestions in the combined search and address bar. We are glad to announce that this has now been implemented. Look for the heart icon next to suggested pages.
  • Mac improvements:
  • Our Mac team has been hard at work to better integrate Opera with the latest Mac OS release. In beta 28, they made significant strides towards saving you bandwidth during installation and update, as well as other Mac-y fixes, llike...
  • Added “vibrancy” to the address field (see the screen shot above)
  • Improved Mac full-screen mode, making all toolbars and the menu bar visible at the same time
  • Compressed the heck out of installation and update packages (the file size for autoupdates and network installations is down by a quarter!)
  • New bundled themes:
  • Opera beta 28 includes an update to the bundled themes, so you can have a fresh, new look for your start page. Check out the new themes and see if you can’t find one you like.

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.11 Dev (February 2nd, 2015)

  • Today Opera developer 28 receives further stability enhancements to help bring it up towards beta quality. In addition, the internal Chromium version has been updated to 41.0.2272.35.

New in version 28.0 Build 1750.5 Dev (January 28th, 2015)

  • The stabilization of Opera 28 is now underway, meaning that all new features and major changes will be going into Opera 29. In this build we have fixed the most common crashers and we have updated Chromium. We think this build is getting close to beta quality, though there are a few more issues with the address bar that need to be fixed first.

New in version 27.0 Build 1689.54 (January 27th, 2015)

  • Navigation bar:
  • Since the very moment we introduced visual bookmarks, we wanted to improve the navigation between Speed Dial, bookmarks and the Discover feature. We have played with many concepts, and today’s released navigation bar is the best option. You always know where you are, it gives you more space at the top of the window, and you can use the background of your choice without the previous fade-out effect.
  • Tab preview:
  • Tab preview is back! When you click to expand the tab list and move the cursor over the names, you’ll also see previews, so it will be easier to distinguish the desired tab. It’s a simple, yet powerful, solution.
  • Last but not least, we are now actively migrating users to the Pepper API Adobe Flash plug-in, so please don’t hesitate to install it, when Opera prompts you to do so.

New in version 28.0 Build 1747.0 Dev (January 19th, 2015)

  • Two nice highlights include the heart now being disabled when bookmarks are moved to the trash via the “Remove” button in the bookmark popup. We also continue to add more “vibrancy” to drop downs for our MacOS X 10.10 (Yosemite) users. The address field drop down has just been updated as well.

New in version 28.0 Build 1745.0 Dev (January 16th, 2015)

  • Bookmark improvements:
  • Suggestions have been enabled in Address Bar drop-down, making it even easier to locate a page your have bookmarked previously. We have also improved the interaction when dragging between the bookmarks bar and bookmarks manager. Perhaps best of all we have added the frequently requested “Remove” button to the bookmark popup.
  • However, before you get too excited about that last one, I should mention that it is not quite ready yet. Currently when you click it, the first time it moves the item to the trash but the heart icon does not update. Clicking “Remove” again actually deletes the bookmark and the icon then updates. Don’t worry, we will fix it!
  • We also added “vibrancy” to the bookmark popup, for users of MacOS 10.10 (Yosemite).
  • Sync feedback:
  • We are continuing to work in sync, in both the browser and our sync server. We noticed a few people having issues connecting to the sync server of late. If you are one of those people, please comment below and let us know so we can see how widespread the issue is. Better yet, if you are technically inclined you may be able to include a little bit more helpful information by “pinging” the sync.opera.com and noting the IP address you are given, when you comment below (we only need this information from those who cannot connect).
  • As with the bookmark popup, the sync menu also gained “vibrancy” support on MacOS 10.10.
  • New bundled themes:
  • It felt like a good time to update the bundled themes, so that you can have a fresh, new look for your start page.

New in version 27.0 Build 1689.44 Beta (January 14th, 2015)

  • There are couple of things worth mentioning for this build, let’s start with Chromium updates. Over the time of the holiday break two of them were pushed to Opera beta, and currently we are using 40.0.2214.69 version.
  • Our developers also fixed annoying bug that was happening on Facebook for our users using various IMEs – you should now be able to input characters without any problems. Crash fixes and other improvements are listed, as always, in our changelog.

New in version 28.0 Build 11738.0 Dev (January 8th, 2015)

  • Highly compressed packages:
  • By switching to a different compression format, we have decreased the file size for autoupdates and network installations by a quarter! If you use the latest network installer you will benefit right away. Those using autoupdate should get the benefits from the next build onwards.
  • Improved full screen:
  • In full screen mode on Mac, the menu bar will no longer slide down on top of your tab bar. Previously, the menu bar would slide down on top of the tab bar when you moved the cursor to the top of the screen. All toolbars and the menu bar can now be visible at the same time.
  • Bookmarks menu improvements for everyone:
  • This is not strictly new for this build but rather something I forgot to mention last time. We have changed the behavior of our bookmarks (heart) menu with regards to folders. We now list the seven most recently used folders, even if they are deeply nested. Previously we displayed the top level folders. We are still experimenting around this area and would be grateful to hear what you think of this change.

New in version 28.0 Build 1719.0 Dev (December 19th, 2014)

  • It includes a major version upgrade to Chromium (41.0.2236.0).
  • It also includes more than 150 key fixes and improvements to Opera.

New in version 27.0 Build 1689.33 Beta (December 19th, 2014)

  • Select a few links or an entire bookmark folder and click Share. Then, copy the link and paste it to email, chat, or the social network of your choice. It’s as simple as that.
  • Import bookmarks from other browsers:
  • If you’re switching to Opera for the first time, you can import your bookmarks (and other data) from your old browsers...
  • Select to Settings from the main menu (Preferences if you’re on Mac).

  • Select what data to import and from where. Then, click Import.

New in version 27.0 Dev Build 1689.13 (December 2nd, 2014)

  • Another update to Opera developer, bringing us to version 27.0.1689.13 (and Chromium version 40.0.2214.6). The main fixes on the Opera side revolve around security and stability improvements to syncing.

New in version 27.0 Dev Build 1689.2 (November 21st, 2014)

  • We felt bad about releasing a developer build yesterday with promised sync fixes, that could not actually login to sync! Therefore we decided to give you very small update with this issue fixed. We also fixed a very common crash bug on Linux and an issue where disabling tab menu in settings would not free its space on the tab bar.

New in version 27.0 Dev Build 1689.0 (November 20th, 2014)

  • We took a Chromium update (40.0.2202.3), added Speech Synthesis API support and fixed many bugs, especially on bookmarks and sync.

  • This update includes new Chromium – updated to the version 39.0.2171.62, and couple of fixes for bugs and crashes, mostly related to different kind of plugins. It should now be more stable and crash less, but if you still notice some unexpected behavior – give us a hint in the comments or file an issue through our bug wizard.

New in version 27.0 Dev Build 1683.0 (November 13th, 2014)

  • Also included in this build is not just one but two chromium updates!
  • We fixed an annoying issues where some embedded videos would appear very choppy, these videos should play smoothly again.

New in version 27.0 Dev Build 1676.0 (November 7th, 2014)

  • A small update to Opera 27 on our development stream, so you have something new for the weekend. Some interesting improvements include making the Windows installer DPI aware (so looks great on HiDPI systems), further sync and tab menu improvements, a fix to the issue with the minimize button on Windows XP/Classic and the swipe animation now looks sharper on Mac.

New in version 26.0 Dev Build 1656.8 (October 28th, 2014)

  • A built-in print preview
  • Options to import bookmarks and settings from your old browser

  • The Chromium update may have a knock-on effect for some Linux users who wish to play patent-encumbered HTML5 audio and video (MP3/H.264).

New in version 26.0 Dev Build 1655.0 (October 17th, 2014)

  • New features include: a tab list menu, print previews, and more data import options.

New in version 25.0 Beta Build 1614.54 (October 15th, 2014)

  • Visual bookmarks:
  • Bookmarks in other browsers save website addresses – you can organize them in folders, and you can edit the titles. That’s easy. But, making it look good too is what we do at Opera.
  • Using Opera bookmarks:
  • Click the heart to bookmark a site.

New in version 25.0 Beta Build 1614.35 (October 7th, 2014)

  • We’ve implemented a couple of bug fixes and new Chromium (38.0.2125.101).
  • Some messages which were cut off in Mac network installer for some languages are now displayed properly. In addition, a couple of issues related to playing videos on Mac have been fixed.
  • We’ve also resolved performance problems which appeared when there were a lot of bookmarks created in Opera or imported from older version.

New in version 26.0 Dev Build 1646.0 (October 7th, 2014)

  • Synced bookmarks:
  • Syncing has been a long-requested feature from readers of this blog; and, today, we’re happy to announce the first instalment of syncing your Opera browsers. We have enabled the syncing of bookmarks. To start syncing your bookmarks, click on the account icon to the right of the address field, and sign in using your Opera account.
  • Mac improvements;
  • Our various popover dialogs had started to look a little dated on recent versions of Mac OS, so we have been updating them in the run up to the Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) release. They are now positioned by the OS, which means a ton of positioning kinks have been worked out and you get to see those fancy Mac animations. In Yosemite, they look fantastically “vibrant”.

New in version 25.0 Beta Build 1614 (September 15th, 2014)

  • A better startpage:
  • Did you try Opera Coast yet? Remember the first time you saw these cool icons for your favorite webpages? Well, we did and wanted them in Desktop, too! With Opera beta 25 we try out a new startpage that features Speed Dial with Coast-style tiles instead of screenshots. Try them and tell us what you think!
  • Integrated PDF viewer:
  • Tired of losing focus when you are reading a PDF on a website? With Opera beta 25 we integrate a fast PDF Viewer directly into the browser so you can keep reading without changing applications.
  • Web notifications:
  • Notifications are a convenient way for webpages to inform their users about events, such as the delivery of email or a comment posted on a blog. With Opera beta 25 we make them as native to your system as possible: You will receive them as normal Windows or Mac notifications.
  • Support for H.264 and MP3:
  • H.264 video and MP3 Audio is widely used on the internet. With Opera beta 25 you will have native access to such content.

New in version 25.0 Build 1614.5 Dev (September 10th, 2014)

  • It contains a set of fixes, but the most important one is an update to Chromium 38.0.2125.8.
  • Discover games:
  • Just in time for the autumn avalanche of new game releases, Opera’s Discover feature has added a Gaming category. With so many new games coming out at once, there is a fairly good chance you’ll discover a gem you might otherwise have overlooked. The new category is not yet available in all regions, but you can test it out in the U.S., Global, and a few other regions.
  • You can select just the categories you want from the Discover feature by clicking the gear button, then Categories and hiding the ones that are not relevant to you.

New in version 25.0 Build 1613 Dev (September 5th, 2014)

  • Today’s release of Opera developer 25 includes some interesting changes for Mac. We’ve made the move to 64-bit and have also enabled H.264 video support. We would also like to ask for more feedback on our new Speed Dial, something many of you picked up on in our previous developer release.
  • Start page changes:
  • We have recently begun experimenting with a fresh, new look for Speed Dial. Please try it out and let us know what you think.
  • The right time to switch Mac to 64-bit:
  • We held off on switching Mac to 64-bit until the benefits outweighed the downsides. Today, we think we have reached that milestone. Some of the changes that allowed us to make the switch include...
  • New 64-bit only API possibilities, with the upcoming release of Yosemite
  • Speed and security improvements – find out more on the Chromium blog
  • H.264 video now enabled on Mac, to support the transition from plug-ins
  • No new bugs (we hope!)

New in version 25.0 Build 1606 Dev (September 1st, 2014)

  • PDF viewer:
  • Opera can now open PDF documents without the need to install and run any third-party plug-ins. Now, clicking links on pages that deviously lead to PDF documents won’t disrupt your workflow, as your focus will remain in the same window. Opera’s PDF solution is based on Chromium’s PDFium.
  • If you prefer to stay with your current viewer, that’s no problem at all. Opera’s solution will be used only if there is no other plug-in installed.
  • New online package installer for Windows:
  • Our previous network installer for Windows had a very limited UI. Actually, there was only a progress bar. Before, Opera only interacted with the user after the whole package was downloaded, just before installation. It was quite disruptive.
  • We decided to redesign and improve. We made major interaction design changes. The download and installation is now combined into a single seamless process..
  • In this release, a dialog appears as soon as the application is launched. If the user decides to install Opera, the rest of process continues automatically and the installation finishes with Opera opening its welcome page. We think the new UI and interaction is very nice.

New in version 25.0 Build 1597 Dev (August 20th, 2014)

  • This update comes with a few fixes for things like bookmarks, MP3, H.264 and more.

New in version 25.0 Build 1592 Dev (August 14th, 2014)

  • Bookmarks:
  • First, take a look at the main Opera menu. You’ll find a new item there – Bookmarks.
  • Play around with that menu and see what happens. Now you can quickly enable or disable the bookmarks bar by selecting Show bookmark bar.
  • If you want to bookmark a page, click the heart icon, found on the right side of the combined address and search bar. We think it’s cool that Opera now suggests a thumbnail for your new bookmarks. There are a few suggestions and you can change the image if you think another works better for you.
  • The bookmarks page (found by clicking Show all bookmarks in the main menu), contains a list of folders on the left. Use these to manage your bookmarks. You can organize your folders and personalize how you want your bookmarks to be kept.

New in version 25.0 Build 1583.1 Dev (August 6th, 2014)

  • Under the hood, Opera now supports web notifications.
  • We’ve also improved our Mac installation by moving to the network installer that Windows users have enjoyed for the past few releases.

New in version 24.0 Build 1558.21 Dev (July 29th, 2014)

New in version 24.0 Build 1558.3 Dev (July 15th, 2014)

  • Mac improvements:
  • Fixed the most frequent crashers on OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Linux improvements:
  • Fixed OpenSSL errors on non Debian-based distros (this also fixes WebRTC).

New in version 24.0 Build 1555 Dev (July 8th, 2014)

  • We tweaked how the browser previews tabs, so the UI works better, feel faster and is less likely to get in the way. Additionally, this build enables H.264 support for Windows (further work will be needed before it is available for the other desktop platforms).
  • Why we introduced the large previews:
  • The primary advantages of a large tab preview are to help visually locate a specific tab and quickly check on a dynamically updating tab’s contents (e.g., Gmail or Twitter), without losing track of the page you are currently viewing.
  • These benefits are really for users working with large numbers of unorganized tabs. You, like many of us at Opera, might have a ton of tabs open for any number of reasons: opening multiple articles from the same website site, comparing pricing from several online stores, and the like. We hope that our preview changes will allow you to handle greater numbers of tabs effectively.
  • On the flip side, we realize that with very few tabs, the titles and positions are enough for most people to locate quickly and switch between their open tabs. This can also hold true for users with quite a few tabs, if the person is always well structured and keeps their tabs well organized.
  • With our previews, we hope to assist those who work with many, many open tabs, without intruding on the experience of those who don’t. The previews should not get in the way or be distracting when working with well-structured or limited numbers of tabs. It’s an experiment, so be sure to let us know what you think.
  • Changes to the previews:
  • We decided to turn off previews for tabs when using keyboard shortcuts. In our current implementation, the preview does not assist in locating tabs or checking on them, since you are committed to the change on release of the control key.
  • We tweaked the timing, too. The timing for the initial display of preview (600 milliseconds) will not begin until the cursor comes to a complete stop. We no longer restart this timer when mousing over the active tab or when closing a tab and another moves into its place. We also sped up some of the animations.
  • Finally, we added two settings to the Preferences page: a general control that allows you to disable the entire preview feature and a power-user setting that allows you to tweak the initial timeout to a value of your choice.
  • If you do tweak the timeout value, please give us feedback as to why you felt it needed changing, what you changed it to and if you use a mouse or a touchpad.
  • H.264 video support:
  • This build introduces support for H.264 video playback on Windows. H.264 video is widely used on the internet, and we don’t want you to miss out on any of this content. If you know of sites that use H.264 video and you use the Windows platform, please try Opera on those sites and let us know how it performs.
  • Occasionally, YouTube sends H.264 video content to its users, particularly so if they have opted in via www.youtube.com/html5. However, not all YouTube videos use the H.264 codec. You can check this by right-clicking on the video and (if available) looking at “Stats for Nerds” menu item. This will allow you to see which codec you are using.

New in version 24.0 Build 1543 Dev (June 26th, 2014)

  • Too many tabs opened? Tab preview helps you open the tab you’re looking for because it gives you a peek into each page, making it easier for you to switch from tab to tab.
  • It also helps you manage your browsing time better. You can, for example, look at the preview of your Google Mail or Facebook wall without actually switching to that tab.
  • You activate it by hovering over a tab or by switching tabs using the keyboard. Try it, we think using it feels natural. Does it get in the way? When and how? If it does, please tell us! Please include details on your input device (mouse, trackpad, etc.)
  • High DPI support:
  • We’re also happy to announce that Opera now looks nice and crisp on high DPI (low physical dimensions, high resolution) displays. Updated visuals are enabled by default if you happen to own such display device. Don’t forget to report any visual/usability issues you may encounter!

New in version 12.00 (June 14th, 2012)

  • Faster than ever:
  • Opera 12 gets you online in record time, with improvements that mean faster startup and quick page loading. Thanks to responsive tab loading sequences, you can start up or shut down in the blink of an eye. Pages also load faster while you’re browsing.
  • Easy to personalize:
  • Make Opera yours with a whole new set of themes. Design your own or use one of the options we have ready. Change the look of the browser as often as you want — all it takes is one click. You don’t even need to restart!
  • Put yourself in the picture:
  • With Opera 12, your favorite sites can use your computer’s webcam to take photos from the browser. Set a new profile picture in your social network or just see what you look like with a moustache!
  • Redesigned security badges:
  • Now, it is easier to see privacy and security settings on websites with color-coded security badges in the address bar.
  • New APIs:
  • Opera will offer a more robust and powerful API for windows and tabs, allowing extensions to interact with tabs, create groups of tabs, or manage windows.
  • Right-to-left scripts support:
  • Opera now speaks four new languages. Now that the UI supports right-to-left languages, users of Arabic, Persian, Urdu and Hebrew can enjoy Opera in their preferred language. Learn more.
  • New web standards support:
  • We are also launching support for WebRTC, HTML5 Drag and Drop, CSS3 Animations and Transitions, Do-Not-Track and CSS Generated Content for Paged Media. This will provide richer functionality to web developers and an improved experience for end users. See a complete list of new standards supported.
  • Experimental hardware acceleration WebGL support:
  • Opera will now be able to use your computer’s graphics card for extra processing power in the form of hardware acceleration. This supercharged boost makes intensive web applications and games run even better. Learn how to enable WebGL and hardware acceleration.
  • Discontinuing Opera Unite, Opera Widgets and Voice:
  • With this release, Opera Unite and Opera Widgets are removed by default for new users. We encourage all developers to move their solutions to the extensions platform. Support for the legacy X+V standard and the UI voice commands has also been removed, as the voice-detection library is no longer supported by the third-party vendor.

New in version 11.00 Alpha 1 Build 1055 (November 8th, 2010)

  • A lot of Core fixes
  • *nix fixes are also in.
  • Several Opera extensions fixes and improvements. Now you can use external repositories as your extensions auto update source. You can also install extensions from external repositories and add these addresses to white list to make your life easier next time.
  • The extensions installer has a new look plus it shows additional info about installed extension.
  • From now on if you drag'n'drop extension's config.xml file onto Opera a separate list is created in Extensions Manager which is titled 'Developer mode'. Each entry on this list has additional buttons: 'Reload' (you don't have to install and uninstall to see the changes now, just click 'Reload') and 'Open containing folder' which we think can be quite useful.

New in version 11.00 Alpha 1 Build 1029 (October 21st, 2010)

  • Extensions:
  • Opera users can already extend their browser with Unite and userJS. You have also our standalone web applications Widgets. But now we're making it even better. Opera extensions allow you to easily equip your Opera browser with extra features. You can get them from our extensions catalog at https://addons.labs.opera.com/
  • Opera Presto 2.6.37:
  • Opera 11 alpha is not only about extensions. We equipped it with the brand new Opera Presto 2.6.37 with improved performance, hundreds of bug fixes, enhancements in Web Standards support and support for Websockets.
  • A new installer:
  • At Opera we love speed and like to make everything fast, not only the browser but also the installation of Opera. Opera 11 will ship with a new installer for Windows. The installation/upgrading is now twice as fast, and the installer download is about 10% smaller. Off course we'll optimize it even further in future builds.

Opera 10.60 is based on a brand new version of Opera's rendering engine, Presto 2.6.30 and includes support for several new html5 features, such as Geolocation, Web Workers and Offline applications. In addition Opera 10.60 is the first final browser that has support for the high quality video format WebM.
  • During the development of Opera 10.60 we also focused on stability, performance and alignment of all platforms. 10.60 has notably improved Javascript and DOM performance, and since 10.54 almost a thousand bugs have been fixed. Unix users can now also enjoy a final version of Opera with the speed of the new Javascript engine Carakan, and other features that have been introduced in 10.50 and 10.60.
