Hello there!

One more beta build for you, probably the last one before going Final with Opera 30. It has the Chromium updated to 43.0.2357.81 version and some minor fix on Mac that we squeezed in lately. More details, as always, in our changelog. This build contains also fix for the Logjam attack, improving security on all platforms. Our security group will provide more information about that in a near future on their blog.

I should also mention that Thursday is a day off in Poland, so a lot of people here will make the upcoming weekend a little bit longer. Expect to read and get something from us next week.

Have fun testing!

    Hi Marcin, thanks for the update, and fix for the Logjam attack 😉

  • waiting for stable channel

  • Lacedaemon

    The closing of the Oslo team has finally paid off lol. One bug fix and people have to wait an additional week for it to come to stable. Good job.

    • AND people have to use a beta version to fix a security vulnerable

      • It will become the stable version when it is ready

    • x a

      So you’re the one working voluntarily on public holidays for the benefit of the employer, the customer, the entire world?

      And you appreciate your employer prohibiting best he can the bad habit of employees taking days-off adjacent to public holidays?

      I doubt.

      • Marko Koivuniemi

        Appreciation is nice word – you can appreciate your employers by closing whole team and buy cheaper employers abroad. But this is not Poland Teams fault and I hope they enjoy their holiday.

    • bwat47

      Beta channel doesn’t generally get many changes, and opera 30 is already close to release, stop being so hyperbolic.

    • Marcin Mitek

      I will break the rule and feed the troll.

      Thursday is a public holiday here. Friday is a day off, cause 15th of August is a public holiday in Poland but it’s Saturday, and our labour law states that my employer has to give us that day back. Guess what, office in Wrocław decided to give it back on Friday this week. Probably Warsaw too (I haven’t checked it). I can’t go to work.

      Now, the last beta is usually to align us with the proper version of Chromium. So we did that. And alongside we dragged in a single fix.

      Happy? Go trolling somewhere else, please. Your next attempt will result in ban.

      • Lacedaemon


        yeah I’m a troll… with 1080 comments in this blog only and 2696 upvotes from other trolls. If you would have taken a minute to understand that I’m criticizing the CEO’s and management decision to close down the Oslo team thus slowing down the development of the browser immensely (and it shows since the 20th of April believe me), you wouldn’t need to take things personally.

        • Marcin Mitek

          This is not a place for it. So it’s off topic and I am free to delete it.

          You have no idea how work is organised between the offices. You would be surprised.

          And I don’t care about the numbers of comments and upvotes you received.

          • Office works is an easy jobs. No wonder there’s a lot of fat office worker nowadays lol…

          • Lacedaemon

            Well since 5 “smart” guys agree with you I have to reply to them (otherwise I really wouldn’t, because what I’ve said is crystal clear).

            Let’s start from end to beginning:

            And I don’t care about the numbers of comments and upvotes you received.

            You may not care about numbers and upvotes but if I would have been a troll I would not have reached 1081 comments here not would my comments be upvoted 2700 times (by trolls?) Or is everyone that criticizes Opera here a troll and fanboys not?

            Apparently 6 guys agree with me, so I guess you should ban those 6 too for agreeing with me, right?

            You have no idea how work is organised between the offices. You would be surprised.

            No need to surprise me further, results speak on their own, especially after the Oslo layoffs, thank you.

            This is not a place for it. So it’s off topic and I am free to delete it.

            You are free to do whatever your ego and personal satisfaction pleases you. People will judge.

          • jedy123

            Seriously, give it a rest! Why are you so active in slagging off the Opera team? If you don’t like their browser, use something else.

          • Gustav Ekner

            I agree totally with you. What the heck are you doing, Lacedaemon? Just because you’re popular it doesn’t mean that you are kind and doing the right thing, and of that we have many examples in the history…

          • Gustav Ekner

            “You may not care about numbers and upvotes but if I would have been a troll I would not have reached 1081 comments here not would my comments be upvoted 2700 times”

            It’s easy to receive many up-votes, just complain about something that many others also want, and you will get many up-votes. So I can’t agree with you that you can’t be a troll if you have 2700 up-votes.

          • Vux777

            No need to surprise me further, results speak on their own, especially after the Oslo layoffs, thank you.

            you don’t care about those ppl
            you were trolling them too, while they worked for Opera
            here, on this very blog

            You are here to cure your complexes, probably from personal life, spoiled to the bone, thinking whole world evolves around you and your opinion.
            Actually, there is no opinion in your comments, just a lame bs….
            Usually ppl without real values act like that.

            You got your up-votes in cheep way by being cynical and rude, and there’s always enough ppl that will upvote those comments, some of them because you hit some detail that bothers them, but I bet most of them wouldn’t if they knew your whole opus of trolling here

            cheers, my dear Übermensch

          • Wando Schneider

            Congratulations on formidably summarize what many here think about him.

          • Lacedaemon

            whatever you say fanboy.

          • Lacedaemon
          • Vux777

            as usual…
            lame comment of miserable troll

          • Lacedaemon

            tastes good doesn’t it? continue… the more bullshit you will be writing the more I’m going to enjoy crushing you and humiliating you by facts. you continue sucking me off, lover.

          • Vux777

            someone should ban this idiot already

          • Lacedaemon

            that’s what good love-toys like you tell when they are stressed too much while doing their proper job.

      • Kurt Zon

        Hey!! Enjoy your long weekend!!!

      • Geazi Soares

        Someone here does not like being criticized.

        • x a

          Who is it?

          And what do you mean by “criticized”? Lacedaemon in his esteem for a better Opera and his nostalgia for Presto simply used a wrong (some might call it offending or even stupid) argument to place yet another strike against new Opera, that he thinks failed him so badly.

    • Gustav Ekner

      That comment was very mean. How can you say so to the developers? They made very many changes in the developer version released 7 May for example. Just because this version hasn’t very much changes, it doesn’t mean they haven’t accomplished much.

      • Marko Koivuniemi

        I agree that style of this message was mean – so I understand reaction of Marcin too. I think that Lacedaemon is one of Opera fans that have been used Opera since long time a go and have some kind of personal relationship towards Opera. I registered my Opera 5.x – got nice student discount and after that Opera has been and still is my main browser. But as “family” Opera AS have had rough times: company makes millions of profits and still at the same time sacks a lot of good old fellows from Oslo – second time I think. One big downsizing was when Presto was dumped. (And that I think that was right decision.)
        This is not against polish developers – they do great job (except lack of tab stacks 😉 . Maybe Lacedaemon and I have been stuck in nostalgy time loop and we need to look forward. But it is quite tempting sometimes look what Vivaldi does – because there are so much people that gives memories of times of innovation, humor and something completely different.

    • ayespy

      Objective measures of Opera development process have been quite uneven over the last couple of years – sometimes seeming quite quick, sometimes seeming quite slow, and there has been no change whatever in absolute terms since the downsizing to say for sure what the loss of the Oslo desktop team has meant to speed of progress.

      What has been absolutely reliable, however, has been the fact that smaller updates closer together are a sure signal of a pending promotion of a version number to the next stream, just as we see here.

      In other words, there’s no evidence of what you say, and plenty of evidence of business as usual.

      • Lacedaemon

        Well sorry to burst your bubble but objective measures are those who show that in the first two weeks of every developer build, Opera was squashing bugs at a speedratio of about 100 bugs pro week. You can check it from the changelogs of dev30, dev29, dev28 etc… In dev31 in almost 3 weeks time after the initial version they have squashed merely 79 bugs. So if 79 bugs in 3 weeks vs. 100 bugs in 1 week is not an evidence for you, what can I say further, keep believing what you want as most fanboys here do… like that the CEO and management had no influence at all to this and that Opera’s CEO definitely hasn’t said that “with O25 we actually added all the features that we used to have in the old product” @27:01 of this definitely not official webcast http://www.operasoftware.com/company/investors/webcasts/q32014

        P.S. Oh, I forgot… all those numbers, links and facts coming out of my head?.. wow what a troll I am…

        • ayespy

          Not an Opera fanboy by any means. I prefer Vivaldi.

          And how many bugs squashed per week means exactly zero, without the full context of how many bugs there ARE in each build, how complex or trivial the coding change is to fix each individual bug, and how mature the software is. The largest number of easily fixable bugs will always be in the earliest releases. If you are not fixing tons more bugs in the beginning than you are later on, you’re a pretty sorry developer, because the reliability and stability of your software is not improving.

          You’re just spouting antagonistic and juvenile-sounding crap here, with no sound basis, and with no apparent aim other than to stir up hostility and make trouble.

          I have no position and no belief whether the personnel change has affected progress or not. There’s too little evidence. I was sorry to see the Oslo crew go, because they seemed like good folks and I liked them. I ALWAYS hate to see a big corporation improve their bottom line by firing good people.

          But these feelings do not constitute evidence concerning how progress was affected.

          And this will be the last comment I will make in this thread.

      Thanks for spotting this. I will investigate.

  • Great news on the logjam thing. Are you also working on a toggle for WebRTC? I use VPN and don’t like my arse hanging out. Am forced to use firefox.

  • eshepelyuk

    What about broken Java support ??

    • Gustav Ekner

      What OS? Java’s future seems not so good right now, because NPAPI-plugins will not be supported in Chromium

      • eshepelyuk

        Are you Opera team member ?

        • Gustav Ekner

          No, only a fan 🙂

    • BK

      Thanks for pointing this out, we are investigating.

    • BK

      Fixed now.

      • eshepelyuk

        Great, thank you. Which build it will be included into ?

        • BK

          Next one, any stream.

  • Trevor Gough

    Thanks for the continued excellence and updates. You’re still ahead of Slimjet, Vivaldi, and Otter, Pale Moon, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome, and all the other Chromium browsers out there.

    • icetom

      I thank them too for the update, but the next sentence, is this sarcasm?

      • Gustav Ekner

        I really hope not, because otherwise I wouldn’t have given the comment a like.

      • Trevor Gough

        No sarcasm at all! Slimjet is pretty good. Vivaldi is still a baby. Otter is nifty but lacks polish. Pale Moon is right behind Opera right now for me. Firefox is on the decline; Pale Moon is a much better Gecko browser. IE is IE–enough said. Google Chrome is not as slick as Opera. Opera takes Chrome to another level!

        • jedy123

          It seems some people are extremely vocal in slagging off Opera (and quite often the Opera team) but simply won’t tolerate anyone who actually praises it. Nothing like having a difference of opinion, eh?

          • jkkjk

            I don’t have any problem saying that the next edition of the book “In Search of Stupidity” can contain an entire chapter or even more about the Opera company.

        • icetom

          maybe true, but comparing all newcomers like Otter with Opera isnt really fair at all.
          “Google Chrome is not as slick as Opera. ”
          i got both installed and dont really get what you mean.

          and Microsoft got a nice browser for us in Windows10.
          I dont think there is that ONE best browser today anymore, and none of these Chrome browsers have anything distinctive.

          • Trevor Gough

            Opera has nice in-built features that Chrome doesn’t have, such as Sidebar, Speed Dial (with Folders), Discover, mouse gestures, more keyboard shortcuts, easy access to recently closed tabs, etc.

          • icetom

            i personally dont use any of the new features (of which you mentioned just a few). for example discover is just non-removable bloat. not exactly “slicker” than Chrome.

          • Trevor Gough

            Discover might not be your “gig,” but some of those other things could be.

          • jkkjk

            Trevor, are you an Opera insider? If you are not,it seems you are.

          • bwat47

            opera’s interface is much nicer than chrome’s, much better looking and more customizable new tab page, tab overflow (scrollable tab menu, chrome has no form of tab overflow which is ridiculous), more native ui elements on osx and windows etc…

          • jkkjk

            Discover is SPAM. Full stop.

        • ruduh

          I think Opera Desktop Team is doing a good, very good job, and the trend is improve over time, IMHO. 🙂

    • Dark Magician

      IE is not affected.

    • siamak

      for now, but i think we see vivaldi better later. i hope opera listen to power users for turning to the best browser.

  • Robert

    Is it possible to add a function to YouTube video plays immediately in HD, since the extension is not immediately included m not always work.
    Plus it would be good that there was a function to select the player that would have been a priority HTML5, and if the site is no support for HTML5 Button was quick to Flash Plaer.
    Not enough zoom slider, or at least display somewhere in the corner that showed how much I increase that could return 100% without opening the menu.
    To express on the tiles in the lower panel was a white band where the name of the site. disconnect the empty square (+), and search.

    And when setting appears clear the history after you close your browser?

    I thought opera 30 stable would come to us this week. It seems we need to wait for next week.

      Hey, you probably need to upgrade your ffmpeg to something newer, 2.6.x should work just fine.

  • Marko Koivuniemi

    This is quite vague problem but is there something I have done or is there some Blink change that causes that when I click link to save pdf-file file.pdf and if there is file with same name earlier result was file (1).pdf, file (2).pdf etc. But now it gives me save as -dialog where I must type filename. I liked earlier behave more.

  • Gloriam

    Getting a bit annoyed from having to remove “Zalando” from my speeddial every once in awhile, is this a bug or is this happening on purpose?

    Asking this became I use 3 devices with each having Opera on it, didn’t mind it the first time, but if it keeps re-adding itself after me removing it, not fun.

    • icetom

      probably they get money from this – also notice the reflink forwarding if you click a speeddial entry redir.opera.com/speeddials/partners for youtube, facebook etc. they always had specific bookmarks in the past versions before 12.16 too. they always got added after an update in my bookmarks list

    • BK

      re-adding is a bug, sorry for that.

      • icetom

        really? this always happened with pre-Chrome Opera bookmarks too

        • Gloriam

          Not with a minor update though, I don’t mind it if happens from 30 to 31 or 31 to 32 and beyond.

          BK, thanks for confirming that it was a bug, no harm done. 🙂

        That’s picture for. O menu is cut off, tabs are not in line with menu but are bellow the menu.

  • Trevor Gough

    Opera developers should note that with sidebar open, pages like this render much differently than they will when the sidebar is closed: http://wx.aerisweather.com/?pands=53032

    The right-hand portion of the page is put underneath the left-hand portion of the page when the sidebar is open.

    I presume this is not intended … or is it?

    Thank you.

    • Vux777

      depends on your screen size and resolution.
      New pages are adopting to it.
      if you narrow down chrome window enough you will also get that mobile look, and side bar is narrowing main browser frame ofc

      • Trevor Gough

        I have a 10.1-inch screen

        • Nekomajin43

          It’s up to the webmaster to decide what and how you can see on different screens. The sidebar is a good feature, but probably not on such a small screen.

          • Trevor Gough

            The same phenomena is happening on my 17-inch screen desktop PC with this Opera beta version.

          • bwat47

            screen size itself doesn’t make any difference, its all about the screen resolution (particularly about the horizontal resolution in this case). On my mba 13′ (1440×900 resolution) there is absolutely no difference in rendering on that page with sidebar active (in a fullscreen browser window)

            If you have a low screen resolution the sidebar may push the contents of the page enough for there to be a scrollbar and/or render differently (some page will automatically resize etc depending on how they were designed).

            The page in question has an adaptive design and changes itself when the horizontal resolution is small. You can reproduce the same phenomenon in any browser by just opening that page and resizing your browser window to a small size 🙂

            The sidebar takes up some space when it is active and it just so happens it takes up enough pixels to trigger the page to adapt to smaller resolution in your case.

          • Trevor Gough

            OK, thank you for that explanation. 🙂

  • Trevor Gough

    Just wondering why the video here does not play in Opera beta 30.0.1835.49 as it does in other Chromium-based browsers: http://shoebat.com/2015/06/03/breaking-cnn-reports-pamela-geller-target-of-beheading-attack-then-asks-her-if-she-relishes-being-the-target/

    Thank you.

    • Vux777

      it works here on win7 x64, this beta

      • Trevor Gough

        I’m on win7 x32

        • Vux777

          it should’t be different… try to disable extensions, or open page in privaite window and see if runs… or if you enabled “click to play” in settings, disable it

          • Trevor Gough

            I wouldn’t think it would be different, either, as you say, but it is. I tried every one of your suggestions. There is no success on any of those suggestions, either, unfortunately.

    • SuperTommy

      Working fine here with PPAPI Flash.

      • Trevor Gough

        My plugins say I have Shockwave Flash. How do I get this PPAPI Flash?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          There is no ppapi version of Shockwave afaik.

          To get ppapi Flash player, just go to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ using Opera.

          • Trevor Gough

            OK, thank you, I updated to that and I get the same result, though. At the bottom of the video screen, it says “The video could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported.”

            As said before, this is not an issue with other browsers on my laptop.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            At least here the video doesn’t run in flash, it runs in html5.

          • Trevor Gough

            Thank you, Leonardo, for your input. How does one know if html5 or flash plays a certain video? I don’t know what’s failing here. Thank you.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Usually right clicking on a video will tell you if it’s flash or html5.
            If it’s Flash, you will see it mentioned.

            What’s your OS? Maybe it’s a OS related issue.

          • Trevor Gough

            OK, thank you, again, Leonardo.

    I have a request, it’s about the sync functionality, earlier today I added a link to my bookmarkbar, but it hasn’t shown up on any of my other PC’s, I assume this is because it only syncs every once in awhile, that’s fine, but could there be an option to force it to sync? Perhaps every few hours?

    Opera beta 30.0 for Ubuntu has become my favorite browser: fast, smooth and great layout. The one missing option is a Cookies Control tool that is like Firefox’s Cookies Control tool (for Linux). Please compare it to Opera’s Cookies Control, Opera could use that kind of tool. Keep up the good work!

    The Opera 31 has been promoted to the beta channel 31.0.1889.16 😉

    I just started using Opera 30 and so far like it. The discovery section of Speed Dial however, I hate. I would like to use the news section but it’s loaded with nothing but the most liberal leaning trash out there. I suspect this is intentional and consequently, that feature of the software is completely useless to me since it can’t be personalized. Since I’m a neglected user, I simply select food and never go there. You may as well remove “discovery” as far as I’m concerned.

    I am not a fan at all I don’t like the Discovery, it is not my kind of news, I hate the speed dial I want to do it my way not like a fake Windows 10. It just looks and is SLOPPY, not a fan any more at all
