The most important change we’re introducing in Opera 31 is its startup time. Opera for computers now starts up to 70% faster in comparison to previous versions. This is especially important and helpful for devices with slower, traditional hard drives.

Discover gets a makeover

We redesigned pages in Opera for computers so everything looks nice and modern. In Opera 31, Discover gets a better layout.  Discover is a feature that serves you the most recent content from your region. You can also customize it by choosing topic category or country.

Discover gets a sweet update in Opera 31.

Tip: One of our favourite categories is Food. Follow it and you will never miss the best recipes for tasty pasta.

and more…

We are working on improved synchronization, with additional options, across your devices. This release synchronizes typed history between your desktop devices. Now you can get to your history faster.

    How to switch to old look in speed dial? 🙂

    Btw: thx for next version!

    • BK

      There is no such switch. What does not work for you in the current SD?

      • rpsgc

        It’s called “personal preference”.

        It’s called not forcing unwanted (UI) changes on people. Have you learned nothing from Microsoft’s Metro fiasco?!

        • BK

          It’s always a balance between progress and changes which might be annoying initially.

          • sbs73000

            Hard to see new Speed Dial as a progress : try to save a session with many tabs from the same domain… Then, you have 3 seconds to find the one you need in the newly created SD file. Starting now ! 😉

          • BK

            Agree – this is broken – we will look into this.

          • Lacedaemon

            We ‘ve been saying that and all the issues of SD (like the blocky forced Metro white -destroying the eyes-, tablet hipster flatness to W7 transparency to name one) for over a year again and again, you really found it out now how bad it is? Here, 10 months ago about the Speed Dial save tabs and general design, with screenshots etc..: https://disqus.com/home/discussion/operablogdesktop/private_opera_31_beta_is_here/#comment-2092561847

            And then people wonder why there is a certain “attitude” from many here, you either never read or you are surely “listening” all the time…

          • rpsgc

            Nothing in the new Speed Dial can be considered as ‘progress’. How is it, in ANY way, better than the old one? Please, tell me. What can this SD do better than the old one?

            I hate how companies try to pass streamlining (fancy word for dumbing down/downgrading) as some sort of breakthrough or progress.

      • Cryio

        This does not work http://1drv.ms/1M2cfnY .

        Nothing displays properly in Speed Dial.

      • Nekomajin43

        It was discussed several times, but OK, again.

        The whole speed dial is a mess. Too much white. It may look good with your build-in themes, but you have a pretty big theme catalog, if I’m correct.
        (Why can’t we change the background color of the tiles via themes? Two more lines in the ini file, and those wallpapers would actually look like some real theme.)

        What the hell is that tiny search field in the top right corner? Did anybody ever used it? But it takes about 50 pixels of vertical place, which is EMPTY.

        Why can’t we change the images directly from the speed dial? Why do I have to open every page to select the image I want?

        Why can’t we move the navbar to the sides? Or at least to the top? I assume, you know that half dozen lines you have to find in the CSS file.

        Will you ever do something with it, or it is a useless comment again?
        You say all the time that you want to do less but do it better. Still, every major feature you release is incomplete. Which would not be bad, if you would continue to work on them, but you don’t.

    • rpsgc

      You can’t, not any more. They removed that flag. Another “GREAT” decision by Opera.

    • Cryio

      The current Speed Dial is atrocious.

    • Dan

      I found a solution. Click on one of the speed dials, then click on the heart icon at top right of page, and use the arrows to select which image you want.

      The speed dials won’t look perfect, but it will be better than the colorful boxes.

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Zhenis, thanks for the announcement, and congrats to the Developers on the first release of the Opera 31 stable! 😉

    • http://www.opera.com Zhenis Beisekov

      Hi @L33t4opera:disqus, 🙂 thank you for being with us!

    • Rafael Luik

      Are you cosplaying? lol

  • http://www.uopera.net/ Opera Fans

    is this version fully compatible with win10?

    • rpsgc

      The buttons are fixed, but the scroll bar is still Win95 style.

      Hardware acceleration still is a bit wonky. Occasional graphical glitches here and there.

      • http://www.uopera.net/ Opera Fans

        but i guess the acceleration problem results from the graphics driver, as MS did a really bad work on it this time

  • Ekriss

    About time Opera works in Netflix and Viaplay?

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      Give us a little more time, it will be working from version 32. Cheers!

  • Apocalypse

    WOW!! So much changes. Congratulations!! 6 weeks of developing and we have new Discover!! Really great…

    • Kev87

      This build is not the only thing they are working on. Apart from fixing a lot of bugs and crashes, they also made Opera much faster on slower drives, which is a useful improvement. Other than this, the devs are working on O32 which is currently in dev-stage and includes a lot of other new things (more sync, netflix support etc). It’s not the case that they can write and manage all these things in a couple of hours or days.

      • Apocalypse

        Yep. Ok so tell me. Who is working on an engine? Opera? They have ready Chromium base, and after 6 weeks we have better Discover? Please…
        It is 16 version from beginning of 15+, and what do we have now? We dont even can reaarange extensions icons. Well im looking very forward to Vivaldi final…

        • mikemanger

          Yes Opera do work on the Blink engine.. see the Dev.Opera articles. In fact a developer implemented CSS multi-column layout in this release.
          https://dev.opera.com/blog/opera-31/
          http://operasoftware.github.io/upstreamtools/

          • Apocalypse

            OK. One point for you. But you really think that they have less time than when they worked on Presto? Im so tired to repeat this. I dont care about Discover. I want only to change many options. If i would like to use Chrome i would use it…
            Its a shame because i loved Opera and i was giving it changes many times. But im so tired now…

          • Vux777

            they also work on Opera exclusive features hidden behind flags
            Chrome has it’s own path (like sidebar, tab memory consumption, window management…)

            I dont care about Discover. I want only to change many options.

            Many Options would clutter/downgrade user experience
            and they need to choose those options (and make them default features) that will suit majority of users

            Chromium have powerful JS engine, but it’s very easy to f*** it up with junk code for every button this, that,…. feature behave like this, or like that….
            at the end you get browser with tons of bling-bling features in which you cant drag tab or bookmark without freezing/crashing

          • Nekomajin43

            I think we can agree in one thing. This “do less but do it better” philosophy they say all the time is not working for them. Just take a look at the unfinished features.
            The GUI is a mess. Take a look at the speed dial or the tabs menu. The sidebar has more potential. Sync is still buggy.

            I’m not complaining about this release. There are always periods when the visible part of the developement is slower. But I think there is a big problem, somewhere down in the roots. They said they did not want to mess up the GUI with a lot of features. Now we have only a few features AND a messed up GUI. Even without basic customisation like rearranging the toolbar buttons.

          • Vux777

            I don’t see mess in GUI
            yea, rearranging extension icons should be available, but…
            the whole GUI is clean and smooth..at least that’s my experience

            SD is part of bookmarks mess…if you remember, first they pushed bookmarks as SD folders
            then they remove it, now we have SD IN bookmarks and new “new” thumbnails logic… blah
            they didn’t needed all that
            if they simply implemented out-of-the-box bookmarks manager from chromium, there would be much less drama last couple of years…and then they should implement that thumbnail-bookmarks solution (which I hate 🙂 )

          • Nekomajin43

            Thanks to all the reluctance they showed in the past months, they made themselves more work to do. How many times did we say that they did not have to reinvent the wheel? At least not every time.

          • Herr Pietrus

            Toolbar on the top, toolbar on the left, toolbar on the bottom… SD v. 1, SD v. 2, SD v. 3… of course, only in developer stream, but we’ve seen how they “worked” on it, they even claimed that they had wanted our feedback.. and finally they do what they want and what they like. So, why all the fuss?

          • Apocalypse

            Yes i understand that, but what we really need is OLD FEATURES. Cmon i cant even change icons of extensions? What we can customize?

          • Herr Pietrus

            “Chrome has it’s own path (like sidebar, tab memory consumption, window management…)”

            But it seems that nobody knows about it. Old users complain that there are stupid, irrational GUI changes (actually that stupid play with UI last for more than a year and only good thing it binged was a united API for the Bookamrks and the SD, in the same time SD, Discover and internal pages are being changed without any good idea how to do it, it took a couple of builds to add third zoom level in the BM and to fix icons alignment!), and potential new users… well, they talk on the message boards about the new Chrome and new FF. Opera “is better”, but it exists mainly in the old users’ consciousness …

          • Kev87

            I understand that some of the Opera users are a bit tired of waiting. Opera 12 was fantastic in terms of features, but when displaying some pages, it was far behind other browsers. Because of that it was good to see that they were moving to another more updated engine. I also use Opera for many years now and I also want a comeback of what is was (with all the many features). On the other hand, Vivaldi is also still not what Opera was. In my opinion the main difference is just that both companies are focussing on different things. Opera is now working on making sync like it was, and are currently adding a lot of things to it . They also focus more on stability, have more styled bookmarks, included the original Opera Turbo and other things. Vivaldi on the other hand, still does’nt have sync, something like Turbo, and is using a more ‘simplistic’ sidebar bookmarks manager, but they already implemented tab stacking, Sidebar tabs etc. It looks like Vivaldi is doing more work than Opera, but don’t forget they are also working on the browser for more than two years right now. I like to see that there are other companies (Vivaldi) than Opera who are working on something similar like Opera 12, but sometimes people are thinking that Vivaldi is doing more work, while it is not like that. The focus on what is first to develop is just different. Both browsers have the same goal and they are both going to reach it, but they just have different roads to their destination and that is just what some people don’t like.

          • Vux777

            It looks like Vivaldi is doing more work than Opera, but don’t forget they are also working on the browser for more than two years right now.

            exactly
            but with the difference that Opera was usable browser from very start
            they screwed with bookmarks mess on the beginning, and still have some child diseases like sync and YT videos (last couple of builds were mess with YT)…but overall, Opera is way better browser

          • senja1

            You compare Opera with browser that not even in beta. Opera 15 was much worse in the stable release. And they too worked long before release Opera 15…

          • Vux777

            in the same time of development, Opera was much usable browser than Vivaldi
            Vivaldi is year (max year and the half ) behind Opera development
            They could also keep it in alpha, beta stage for years…
            but they choose to push browser out
            Vivaldi’s choice was to pack as much as they can and then push official release

          • senja1

            You have no idea what you’re talking about…

          • Apocalypse

            ? Opera 15 in Aplha had tab grouping? Tabs on side? Sidebar? Asking open or save file (which dont have now)? Themes support? I totally dont agree with you…

          • Nekomajin43

            Do Vivaldi TP-s have a fast and clean GUI? Can they offer stable browsing?
            Please stop this comparison. Two different developing philosophies. None of them is better than the other.

            If Vivaldi would be that good, you would not comment here but use it happily. (And yes, if Opera would be that good, there would be non need for Vivaldi.)

          • Apocalypse

            “Do Vivaldi TP-s have a fast and clean GUI?” It doesn`t?

            “Can they offer stable browsing” when i use it from TP 4, it has never crashed, but i remind you its Pre Alpha.

            “If Vivaldi would be that good, you would not comment here but use it happily.” – of course you r right, but can i just write my criticism or it is forbidden?

            Vivaldi will be very good, but honestly i started with Opera. I miss Old Opera and thats why i comment here. Maybe devs will read one of my comment and realize what most of past users of Opera want.

            Cmon. I didnt want to start a flame war here. Just when u see changelog like this, you can get angry can` you?

          • Nekomajin43

            I am frustrated, too. But this comparison is ridiculus. They follow two completely different developing philosophies. They will never be the same. The first public Vivaldi build was released about 6 months ago, but they still don’t have a stable release. They still don’t have even a beta release! Since february, Opera has implemented a few features (one of them is the sidebar), and I don’t have to wait for A feature to be released because B feature is still not ready.

            Opera does not have [insert random feature] because the developers do not want to implement it, not because it is impossible. Take it or leave it. Or be patient and write ideas, suggestions, real life work cases. And write them again and again. But comparing to Vivaldi has zero success.

          • Apocalypse

            Maybe it has zero success, maybe not. But you r right. Devs of Opera doesn`t want to implement new features, that makes me sad.
            But ok Vivaldi has their own philosophy, but their team is build from past Opera employeers, so thats why i hope it will be the best browser. Don`t take it personally. I miss time that Opera developer was hearing its users. Now they change many time SD, and people said: “dont touch it” and then? U install next version and everything is changed. U got my point?

          • Nekomajin43

            Some of those Vivaldi guys were working for Opera until the reorganization of the desktop team a few weeks ago.

            And I get your point, but try to write constructive comments. I’m sure the current desktop team will hear your voice too, in time. But if you are disappointed, just use Vivaldi and browse happily.

          • Apocalypse

            I tried write constructive comments, believe me. Wihotut any anserws…

          • Herr Pietrus

            There were hundreds of constructive comments about the toolbar on the bottom, new SD, new Discover…

          • Vux777

            what’s the use of tab grouping and tabs on the side when browser is slow and choppy?

          • Apocalypse

            Huh? when u have istalled it last time? Its fast as hell and also stable and i remind you its PRE – Aplha.

          • Kev87

            No they don’t, but does have Vivaldi right now have Sync, Themes as it was, Addons, same HTML5 capabilities etc..
            That will also take lots of time to implement these. I totally understand what you want and what lots of people are expecting to happen, but on the other hand, nobody wants a browser with tons of features, but also lots of crashes, bugs etc.

          • senja1

            They use Blink like Opera, so they have same HTML5 capabilities… Extensions works from Chrome store, but they not officialy supported yet (Opera there have lot of experience from past, so). Themes? Ok, if you can call changing speed dial background a theme… Vivaldi already have better themes, which can change complete color of user interface. And can change speed dial background too 😀
            It’s still in alpha, but when go stable, it would been light years infront current Opera. Not to mention Opera 15…

          • Kev87

            But does it already have their own addon site and full sync? That will also take a lot of time to develop. And by html5 capabilities, I mean things like H.264 and MSE and other stuff.

            Don’t forget that right now it is still far from a stable release and it will take months, maybe more to reach that. The point is just that I don’t get it when people call Vivaldi like ‘something that falls out of heaven’ and is perfect and far better than Opera. Please enough of that.The truth is however that it is still very far from what they want to be and some people don’t see that. Also Opera is definitely not what O12 was and I totaly agree with that, but come on, Vivaldi is it neither, even not in a few months. Features is not the only thing to be the ‘best’ browser. Both browsers still need some time and they both still have lots of work. Opera right now for example is focussing on bookmarks and Sync. When this is done, and it is not that far away, they can focus on other things. At the same time, also Vivaldi has to implement all these and other things. I know that some people are tired of waiting to Opera, but then again they can wait to Vivaldi, which, like I said is also not ‘perfect’.
            Changes are made and you can not go back in history. Every browser vendor has their own path to reach succes and they all have their own priorities and decisions, but nobody can make everyone happy at the same time.

          • senja1

            Of course Vivaldi is not perfect. Its still in alpha. When got stable then we can talk. Remember what was Opera 15 stable? Only Opera UI on Chrome, with far less options… Even now Opera dont have not even close options Vivaldi has.
            As I said before, Opera has lot of experience. They have extensions and addons site on old Opera too.
            But now is far cry what is been before. Remember widgets, skins (real themes), Unite, Mail, RSS…

          • Apocalypse

            Addons and HTML5 capabilities Vivaldi has. U know its pre Alpha, but its more stable than any other browser.

            “nobody wants a browser with tons of features” – do you know where r you typeing? Its Opera blog. People used to love Opera because of tons of features. Vivaldi will have features and will have love of users. Thats of course my opinion.

          • Vux777

            every time someone criticizes Vivaldi, reply is “it’s pre-alpha”
            so what?
            Opera was far more usable at that stage of development

            …but its more stable than any other browser.

            and this is so wrong to say…

          • Apocalypse

            OK. I dont reply its pre-alpha anymore :-). But u have to understand that when Vivaldi started many of us old Opera fans were very excited, and look now at the Vivaldi Team. Its old Opera employeers, so i hope they know, what r they doing. But ok. Pls understand – i write this comment from Opera 31 and i think its very good browser, but i miss features. I hate, that it doesn` ask me if i want open or save file. I cant count many time of this…

          • Vux777

            But u have to understand that when Vivaldi started many of us old Opera fans were very excited…

            oh rly? ツ

            btw. check the date… 😛

          • Apocalypse

            So u r one of old users. Why do you protect new Opera then?

          • Vux777

            …I don’t want to live on this planet anymore 🙂

          • senja1

            When Opera was in that stage? They released Opera 15 when was in almost stable state. You never could try Opera at such an early stage. So you have no idea what you’re talking …

          • Vux777

            you are seriously boring repeating the same sentience over and over again
            no one have any idea except you, right?

          • senja1

            I clearly explained to you why you have no idea what you’re talking. Opera never released in that stage, in which is Vivaldi now. And you repeating same again…
            You compare incomparable, in many ways. It’s not in same stage as Opera 15 when its released to public. And still has much more features than Opera even now. And especially Opera 15 has.
            One more thing, employees. Vivaldi has now 30 people employed. They have far less when they started. And they started from zero. Opera has far more employees, and far more experience. And they had great (the best) base. And they only go down since then. Look at them now. They fired Oslo based desktop team. Now Opera for desktop been developed in Poland. And look what they have achieved. New version, compared to the previous, has a new discover page. Give me a break.
            Vivaldi, with 30 employees doing a much better job.

          • Vux777

            you didn’t clearly explained anything
            I gave you an page with 13 different builds of O12, you trolling about the time that v12 had only security updates
            well duh, AFTER O15 was released…and Presto was abandoned

            I’m trying to avoid comparison with Vivaldi, but you and others constantly trying to make this into a browser war trolling here what Vivaldi have and Opera doesn’t
            WHEN Vivali publish its first stable build and when starts to compete on browser market share, then compare its features, speed, usability, user count, etc…
            because this way is “Vivaldi have this, Vivaldi have that…”

            -yea, but most of those features either work poorly or do not work at all
            -“but that’s because it is in pre-alpha”
            -,- …..right
            ____________________________________
            when do you think, Vivaldi development started?
            6 months ago?

          • senja1

            Opera 12 is not been far behind other browsers in displaying pages. While Presto has been developed its been just a few pages that not been displayed properly. And in newer Opera there is some pages that not works like in other browsers, like Bing for example…

          • Vux777

            it was all sets of pages with heavier JS work
            any modern service was problematic on O-Presto

          • senja1

            Yes, after Presto abandoned. While developed, Opera is not far behind…

          • Vux777

            no
            Facebook was disaster
            Twitter was freezing with every scroll
            there were problems with Gmail…
            And devs were trying what they can with JS patches, but engine couldn’t keep track with modern development

          • senja1

            Again, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Presto abandoned long time before Opera 12. Look for older browser wars articles, untill Opera 11. Opera was leader in many areas, and in other areas not far behind. Even in early HTML5 was leader. First 64bit browser, and first hardware accelerated…

            Then they abandoned widgets, Unite, Mail, than Presto completely. All this while the new stuff coming for access to the sites. They abandoned Presto long before Opera 12, and have not developed more.

          • Vux777

            First 64bit browser, and first hardware accelerated…

            and those stuff where creating freezing and crashes
            HWA was never working in Presto as supposed to, and x64 were little official, and then draw back…because of more problems than benefits

            I know exacly what I’m saying
            FB and any moder service on Presto was unusable

          • senja1

            You obviously not the old Opera user. You talking about Opera 12+ when Presto alredy abandoned. You know that before Opera 15 released, they not updated Opera 12 over a year. Opera 64bit was not draw back. Its official stable and downloadable. I have it installed currently. HWA got some problems, because Presto was abandoned…

          • Nekomajin43

            Come on! Both x64 and HWA were VERY buggy from the first _stable_ release, and not much changed after the bugfix updates.

          • senja1

            Ok, you know everything, new Opera users…

          • Vux777

            You obviously not the old Opera user.

            and you obviously fishing just to satisfy your claims

            You know that before Opera 15 released, they not updated Opera 12 over a year.

            not true…
            …and O15 was released on 01 Jul 2013

            Opera 64bit was not draw back. Its official stable and downloadable. I have it installed currently

            x64 versions of O12 builds were unstable and creating crash loops.
            Me and many ppl on old myOpera were complaining about it… and it wasn’t a random thing, sometimes… it was x64 version that crashed in almost 100% cases after 20-30 seconds of using it
            not in all v12 builds, but many had that problem

            HWA got some problems, because Presto was abandoned…

            HWA never worked as expected…as the matter of fact, it was slowing the whole browser (instated of speeding it up)

          • senja1

            Lol, wat are you talking about? Latest Opera 12 updates was only security fixes. They stop developing long time ago.
            I dont know what is your problems with Opera x64, but for me always worked. And tests shows its better than 32bit. And its official. Never been pulled out. Many browsers not have 64bit versions even now. Infact only Opera 64bit have benefits form 64bit version. Other browsers was slower than their 32bit versions.

          • Vux777

            I linked the wrong page:

            this one should be

          • Apocalypse

            I understand your point of thinking but i don`t buy it. Vivaldi did more from the beginning that Opera from 15+. Notice that its only TP now. I really dont need another clone of Chrome. What we wanted (loyal Opera fans), was only to change engine but dont CHANGE ENYTHING ELSE! We loved Opera adn we chosen it because of its features. Features, that are missing in new version. Thats why everyone from old Honour Guard r looking forward on Vivaldi. They work on FEATURES, that we loved…

          • András Ács

            It was their decision to do it this way, with a clean slate, whether you agree or not. Why do some “loyal Opera fans” linger around and echo like bitter old ghosts?

            What’s done is done.

          • Apocalypse

            OK then but im allowed to be not happy and comment here?

          • Kev87

            I know that it is nice to test and play with as much as possible features, but Opera is, like I and Vux777 said, much more usable and much more stable. I indeed like the way that Vivaldi is going with giving as much ‘features you can see with your eyes’, but I hope that they indeed don’t end up like Opera 12 which was full of features, but more buggy and crashing a lot of times. Features are important, but stability and more background implementations (html5 capabilities for example) are also important (which opera focusses on before going to implement more features)

          • Apocalypse

            “but Opera is, like I and Vux777 said, much more usable and much more stable”, as Chrome is. So what is the difference? I wanted to use full of features program…

  • https://www.bizarrepedia.com/ Liam Enoch

    So 0 new features but discover gets a makeover..? No wonder why the Opera devs run away to build Vivaldi…

    • Cryio

      Opera synchronizes open tabs, bookmarks and typing history now. But no speed dial …

      • András Ács

        Have you looked at Bookmarks/Other speed dials?

        • Cryio

          Yes, I know that the tabs which are in a Speed Dial group are in Bookmarks. But the Speed Dial group itself doesn’t appear in …. Speed Dial.

          • András Ács

            I have trouble parsing that, but OK then.

          • Nekomajin43

            Your sinced speed dials are in the Other speed dials folder.

          • bwat47

            you can copy and paste speed dials from the other speed dials folder to your local speed dial via the bookmarks manager

          • Rafael Luik

            Which is also called “manual copy” and “micromanaging versioning” not sync.

    • Lacedaemon

      Don’t worry, in O dev version 32, they ‘ve added the “remove Bookmark Sharing” feature…

  • Vux777

    hopefully, now you can polish/finish tab hibernation feature
    and kick it in 32 as legit settings option (not flag)
    Couple of days ago Chrome introduced something like that
    but Operas way is much better
    and theres actually many ppl that want less memory hog

    And where is nana? Come on. Nana u must congratulate because of new version!

      and when bunch of groupies doing the same on Vivaldi blog…
      that’s super cool, right?

        I am not of a part of Vivaldi blog. Believe me. I want to be first to congratulate devleopers, but sadly there is nowthing to congratulate :-(. In my dreams i write first comment to changelog like: “tab in multiple lines” changable icons…etc…

  • catup

    Such a short blog post. When I saw the pic I thought it was a long one.

  • Cryio

    Yeeei ! Now work on the Speed Dial. It’s a disaster.

    http://1drv.ms/1M2cfnY

    • dflyra

      Sad but true! A great browser let down only by this abomination of speed dial!

    • bwat47

      I don’t see anything wrong with the speed dial in that screenshot…

      • Cryio

        It’s not clean. Every dial takes random things from websites. Be it my picture, a picture, not a picture at all, nothing of interest, unviewable things.

        How can’t you see anything wrong? There are only 3 (three) websites that render correctly.

        • Vux777

          if you mean by page screenshots that are only rendered correctly…
          enable bkm improved popup (not sure how it works without it, can’t test now)
          opera://flags/?search=popu#improved-bookmark-popup

          and then you can change those images from bookmark popup (click on the heart) when you visit bookmarked page

          • Cryio

            I see no difference.

          • Vux777

            you can’t list images on popup?

            they not gonna auto reload/fetch, you need to visit that page and then choose image from popup

        • Dan

          Use the arrows to select the image you want for the speed dial.

  • András Ács

    Argh, constant whining make reading this and other software threads generally painful.

    Anyway, thanks for the release! Typed history sync I missed, optimization always welcome.

    • rpsgc

      Yes, heaven forbid people show their displeasure with certain attitudes/actions (or, gasp, provide feedback). We wouldn’t want that, now would we? No, that would be WHINING!

      Grow up.

      • András Ács

        Constructive feedback is one thing, but sounding bitter, resentful, or indoctrinative does not help anyone I think.

        • rpsgc

          People have tried constructive feedback for years, they were ignored. Now they are (rightfully) bitter and resentful, yes. And no one is ‘indoctrinative’ (that’s not a real word BTW), except maybe for the occasional new-Opera evangelist.

          And in case you didn’t notice, the problem with your post was the way you dismissed all “negative” comments as whining.

          • András Ács

            I dismissed whiney posts, that was my intention anyway.

            I’m not a native English speaker BTW.

            And, this thread ends here.

          • rpsgc

            In your eyes ANYTHING negative is “whiney”. You evangelists crack me up.

          • rpsgc

            To you anything negative is “whiney”. You can’t handle opposing views so you just dismiss it all as whining and trolling.

            Have fun.

          • SuperTommy

            You can’t be rightfully bitter and resentful at a private company, which you can choose to use their products voluntarily for free.

          • rpsgc

            You can’t? Oh, that’s a new one.

            Ever heard of the term “community”?

          • SuperTommy

            You can be bitter, but not rightfully. It’s not a human right to use Opera, it’s not forced upon you. You didn’t pay for it.

          • rpsgc

            rightfully ‎(comparative more rightfully, superlative most rightfully)
            *In accordance with what is right or just; fairly.
            *Rightly, correctly.

            “Rightly”, “correctly”, “justifiably”.

            Instead of going on a diatribe about private entities and human rights, maybe you should first get a basic grasp of English.

          • SuperTommy

            The bitterness you claim people have is not valid. You chose the words, not me.

          • András Ács

            What about “civilized discussion in a community”?

            You’re not here solely to argue, are you? 😉

          • rpsgc

            There’s a certain sense of irony when the person who calls everyone else a “whiner”, and automatically dismisses their opinions and voices, talks about “civilized discussion”.

          • András Ács

            I haven’t dismissed negative comments, I dismissed the tone of some of them.

          • sgrandin

    Any reason why Opera 30 should not update to 31 on auto update now that I’ve updated to Windows 10? About still shows “30.0.1835.125 – Opera is up to date”
    Thanks

    • András Ács

      Staggered updating.

    • Kev87

      I also had this issue on windows 7 64 bit. To manually update, you can just download the installer and run it.

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      This is caused by gradual autoupdate. You’ll receive the update within 24 hours. We tested and planed update this way, to be sure that everything works fine.

      • ColinB1

        Using Opera continually throughout day and have never experienced any significant delay before with previous auto update versions so I thought it might be change at my end with intro of Windows 10 and/or re-install of ESET Smart Security firewall etc. I know I can force update by downloading but will leave for a while to see how long it might take.

      • ColinB1

        Is this then the message that I should expect to see in opera_autoupdate.log:

        964:14420:0804/132446:363681765:WARNING:ipc_channel_win.cc(276)] Unable to create pipe “\.pipechrome.oauc_pipea7297ec673e15dc2a8846991e8773419” in client mode: The system cannot find the file specified. (0x2)

        If yes then I’ll wait patiently. 🙂

      • ColinB1

        12 hours after launch and still no auto update. Are you sure it’s all working to plan?

      They fixed the Settings and other menu options to look properly so I guess they’ll fix the Windows 95 scrolls bars in Opera 32. Kinda amazing they have this problem with Windows 10 being available for use for 9 months now.

      • Nachiketa Ramesh

        Thanks, The new discover looks awesome. Do you have a problem where pages scroll choppily on Opera and Chrome and in the discover section compared to Firefox and Edge (Especially Edge)?

        • Cryio

          No. Everything scrolls just as good on Opera as it does on Edge.

          • Nachiketa Ramesh

            It doesn’t for me on any of my computers on anything Chromium based with a touchpad. A lot of my friends have this issue also.

            Is it something to do with hardware acceleration? Because I have a pretty good i7 mobile chip and a good mobile GPU. A gaming one for that matter.

            I remember have seen some comments about touch not be working well in Opera running in Win10.

            Try disabling hardware acceleration. It seems to be more broken than functional in Windows 10.

          • Jamie

            Disabling it seemed to help! It also stopped the flickering I got when I opened SpeedDial.

  • Jamie

    Opera still identifies my OS as Windows 8.1, even though I’m running Windows 10. Will this and the other Windows 10 specific issues be addressed in Opera 32? Was hoping they’d be fixed in 31 🙁

    • Cryio

      It’s not like a huge issue, but I’ll guess they’ll get around it eventually. It’s certainly not a huge deal and it’s probably something easy to change.

      • Jamie

        The issue is more that it has not been updated to run on Win10. There are some other problems mentioned in other comments on the post. I had just hoped, given how long the technical previews for Win10 were out, that these would have been resolved in 31.

        • Cryio

          Well yeah, I would’ve expected that as well. Anyway, this is nothing .

          You should’ve seen how Opera 12 performed at the time on Windows 8.0 when it launched. It was barely moving. Like I was trying to run the OS, 3 games at a time and the browser on 1 Atom core.

          • Jamie

            haha! I don’t remember having any issues when I moved to Win8, but that seems like so long ago!

            Well, it’s been 3 years ago.

        • Marcin Mitek

          The real problem with Windows 10 rollout is that it was changed a lot even during the last weeks before the launch day. This didn’t make things easier for us.

      It says you are using Win10 on its user agent string.

      • Jamie

        When you go to the About Opera page to do the update it says:

            If this doesn’t help I can take a look through desktop remote access. Just send an email to st@adguard.com if you’re ok with this.

            Sorry for this.

    Oh dear, is it possible to restore transparent folders in Speed Dial (through options) ? Opaque folders are not my cup of tea at all.

    • Lacedaemon

      Forcing the windows 8 & 10 Metro tablet look to Windows 7 computers is insulting though. Just because W8 & 10 are designed for tablets and smartphones in the first place that have no GPU to render any transparency effects, so a crappy, anachronistic W95 look -advertised as groundbreaking- is therefore chosen, is no reason to dismiss Windows 7 transparency.

            Go to settings > Startpage and change the value for maximum number of columns.

            If your screen has enough room then you will see the 9 rows.

            Hi, no chance with a Samsung SyncMaster 2443 1920X1200

          • Vux777

            you can zoom out

          • Ali58

            thanks, that works – do you know the switch to get the preview on the speed dial tabs – new ones only have the written adress but no picture

          • Vux777

            you need to visit that speed dial url and from heart popup choose thumbnail…
            one of them (choose them with left-rightarrows) will be screenshot..
            new popup (in developer channel) will have ability to zoom/pan for thumbnails

          • Ali58

            i dont unterstand, what i should excactly do to get the icons back – can you please explain it with “more” words? Thanks

          • Vux777

            visit that page and choose thumbnail from heart menu

      Video address? Here i don’t see that many dropped frames.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, if your OS has support for the H264 codec, then enable the opera:flags#disable-media-source, and restart the Opera, after that, the videos on Youtube should be played using the H264 codec, instead of VP9 – maybe this will reduce amount of dropped frames in your case.

      If this doesn’t help, then you can try to enable the opera:flags#disable-accelerated-video-decode, relaunch the Opera, and see if this helps.

      • Dark Magician

        That is just one extreme case, it’s usually in the domain of <10.
        But I'm not sure if it's YT fault or Opera.

        Windows 10 64-bit

  • http://sunyamacs.ml SunyaMacs

    the scrollbar has classic style
    the about page says i use win 8.1, but i use win 10

    • Cryio

      Opera uses 2 different UI’s for tabs and the windows’ chrome. It uses square tabs and chrome on Windows 8.x and W10 and uses round tabs on previous version of Windows. Maybe Opera is just emulating W8 detection for the UI to kick in.

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      We are aware of this issue and we’ve already fixed it internally.

  • ruduh

    The new style(thumbnails/tiles) of SD is a disaster, very confusing, messed up my dozens of thumbnails. 🙁

    • https://twitter.com/ResnicksCity Resnick Flores

      Why? What do you mean? I still see my thumbnails perfectly organized. What happened to yours?

  • Kev87

    Not only the discover page, but also the help page (F1) has a new look in this new version.

  • http://mustafahasturk.com Mustafa Hastürk

    you can just close the bench

  • Shadess

    Don’t know what you did but my ram usage dropped pretty significantly with a loooot of open tabs. Also the stability improvements mentioned in changelog seem very aparent, not able to crash opera with basic things that crashed it before.

  • icetom

    again, this update added 2 advertisement bookmarks to my speeddial, you said it was a bug previously, and its happening again. dont tell me its a bug again, who believes that?

    edit: it has deleted some of my speeddial entrys, only the ones down the list. but glad you added your advertisement speeddial entrys

    • BK

      Just to confirm : your custom SD’s entries were removed and then some other SD’s entries were added?

      This is major release, some changes in the preinstalled SD entries can happen.

      • icetom

        what was added: booking.com entry, otto.de shop entry. This has been happening with some releases before and others have mentioned it (thats where i quoted Opera answer “its a bug”).

        I have now thought which entrys are missing and came to the conclusion that the 31 update resetted my speeddial to a previous older state where i had less entrys. i am pretty sure because entrys i had deleted are here now while the newer ones are missing.

        that means there was some sort of timeshift although i did not mess with my Opera or Windows.
        This has never been happening before to me, and you know i am here since years.

      • icetom

        so is there any feedback concerning the advertisement speedial entrys or was that it?

    • Lacedaemon

      was happening to me all the time, with every minor update the default icons of facebook, twitter, booking and all the other shit were returning back although I was always deleting them.

  • icetom

    since the introduction of the new youtube html5 player-interface, Opera does not show any video content on youtube. happened in latest 30, and now in this 31 also

  • icetom

    overall i like the new stable 31. apart from the changed speed dial. i can change only the number of columns but the thumbnails(speeddial entrys) are tiny now?

  • Joe438

    I like the new Discover. It is more organized and looks less like a spam site. I like that more items are being added to synchronization and am really looking forward to what is coming in regards to sync.

    I do notice a couple of bugs like the middle click arrow wheel that is missing when scrolling, but I know you are working on that. Speed dial thumbnails are not always getting applied when using the heart icon. In one of my speed dials the old cached version of the images is coming up from several months ago when I use the heart button to generate a thumbnail for a speed dial entry.

    Many people seem to find these changes to speed dial annoying, but I find that this new version is actually more versatile in that I have greater control over the thumbnail images that I can use for my speed dial thumbnails. I do wish that I could use the right click to refresh the thumbnail for some outdated thumbnails as opposed to going to the page before I can set the thumbnail. This new version is still better than the old one though.

  • Skanker

    BUG getting Out of memory error (either Opera ran out of memory or the process for the webpage was terminated) when browser is idle for some time and i try to open link from other application. Started happening today when I upgraded, Win 8.1 x64 8GB ram.

    • https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/chas4/6-blog Chas4

      Does it happen on the same page every time?

      • Skanker

        no different pages, i keep getting there errors, now even when i opened opera from desktop, all open tabs got this error, dont know what to do. Never got this error in opera 26-30.

    • Lacedaemon

      Possibly related here, I got a KERNEL_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED BSOD moments ago with 0xc0000005 as Parameter 1 which is a memory access violation. Vista x32.

  • http://vinczej.blogspot.hu vinczej

    Amazingly fast startup! 🙂

    • Lacedaemon

      Wouldn’t call it “amazing” on a 2009 laptop with Vistax32 on it I can hardly see any difference doing a cold start.

      • al_ghul

        well yes, not so fast in each start, BUT fastness while browsing is really apparent (maybe only in slower, older PCs – I got one and really feel the difference)! O31 is even faster than lightweight chromium/webkit alternatives e.g. Slimjet, on which I changed Opera more than a half year ago because of slower and slower work on my laptop.

        • Lacedaemon

          They ‘ve advertised though explicitly “startup time” being 70% faster, which is definitely not the case here. Maybe a 5-10% hardly and that only because they ‘ve mentioned it, otherwise it goes unnoticed.

          • al_ghul

            maybe not every time it starts that fast (70%), but that was maximum fastness which they record, i think. in my old and slow laptop it starts faster, well not 70%, I’d say max 50% faster. but the fastness of website browsing is really a fact and I see it in real browsing.

  • qaz123

    Why have removed “#Experimental Start Page” from opera:flags http://i.imgur.com/8Mj7PkB.jpg

    • Leonardo Gomes

      The experiment has ended.

    • Pau B

      Yes, they are crazy for not letting us choose the Speed Dial look.

      I went back to Opera 30.0.1835.125 and will keep this version until they let us choose the Speed Dial we want.

    • TomasFBR

      This >>> http://i.imgur.com/SJMn9U3.jpg?1
      flashes for me every time i start Opera. So Modern Speed Dial is still here, but hidden.. Opera 31.

      • Lacedaemon

        Happens to everyone since the new experimental startpage a year ago -that is default now- but lamely and unexplainable enough few get bothered, the devs even less. It has been mentioned many times but nothing was done to fix that behavior and nothing will be done…

      • sbs73000

        Try a green theme : you’ll have a pretty Christmas tree…

    • Lacedaemon

      Enjoy some squarish white, you can get even more white if you put items in Folders. Give it a try! With a dark background preferably. At night, you can destroy your eyes, together with the white flashing of chromium-based browsers when rendering the webpages, or you no need no other light in the room, it’s perfect.

  • ng wang

    how could I disable the tab menu????

    in the settings I disable it under user interface, but the it still pop up when I switch between different tabs????

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You can’t disable it afaik.

    • L33t4opera

    Please add to the Opera mechanism to interrupt the automatic caching (and stop autoplay) video on HTML5.

  • http://instagram.com/byazrov Vladimir Byazrov

    Just updated but even the newest Opera doesn’t know that Windows 10 is released. Opera 30.0 thinks I am on Windows 8.1. And I never even installed that version. I am on 10.

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      It’s a known issue and we’ve already fixed it internally.

  • al_ghul

    thx Thx THX developers!

    that was really good move to gather users with older and slower hardware! best move from nearly a year, when I had to use more lightweight alternative (slimjet) because of slower and slower opera’s work! and now i can work with multiple cards with really apparent better performance and fastness:) that should be imo one of main priorities for the future – to make websites read quick!

    EDIT: I have read already about prolonged in time auto update of that version, so no comment, I understand why it hasn’t worked in some operas yet;)

    I have one issue/bug?: CTRL+TAB doesn’t work – cannot change between tabs.

    asus ul30a, win 7 64-bit SP1, Intel Core 2 Duo U7300@1.3 GHz, 4GB RAM, Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family (mobile graphic card), opera stable 31.0.1889.99

    once more time – big THX for that version! opera always has been step BEFORE other browsers in fastness/performance and I think that should be:) and older hardware users also should have possibility to choose opera:))

    • BK

      Please reset your opera:flags and reset custom shortcuts in options, should fix your issue.

      • al_ghul

        ok, it works again! I’ve done both things and changing tabs started to work. big thanks!:)

  • Trevor Gough

    Terrific browser Opera is except for the fact that it remains the only browser on my Win 7 32-bit system that cannot play videos such as http://www.westernjournalism.com/watch-krauthammer-just-gave-trump-the-perfect-nickname-and-his-opponents-will-hate-it/ OR http://shoebat.com/2015/08/03/another-marine-has-just-been-murdered-in-tennessee-by-a-follower-of-the-antichrist-this-evil-needs-to-be-destroyed/

    Firefox, PaleMoon, GoogleChrome, Vivaldi, Slimjet are on my system and play these videos just fine. Opera is superior to all these browsers, IMHO, save these video compatibility problems.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

      Those videos work terrifically well in Opera. The problem is on your end.

      • Trevor Gough

        Do you have Windows 7, 32-bit, Maxim, like I do?

        Like I said, those videos work in all other browsers on my laptop. Only Opera in its stable, beta, and developer forms all updated have an issue with videos such as these.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/max1cp?feature=mhum Maxim

          Works fine in Win 7 64-bit version. I’m sure it would work in Win 7 32-bit version if I tried. The issue is probably with your Opera profile. Or possibly with your windows.

          • Trevor Gough

            Well, I don’t know why three separate installations of Opera on my laptop would all have bad profiles.

            Secondly, I don’t believe it’s a Windows issue since no less than five other browsers on my laptop have no such issues with these videos and others like them.

          • Trevor Gough

            I have “Windows 7 Starter”; perhaps, Opera is more limited than other browsers with this operating system?

          • Lacedaemon

            Opera had problems with certain editions of W7x32 in the recent versions, you can’t be 100% sure they ‘ve fixed it.

            http://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/2015/06/opera-stable-30-0-1835-88-minor-update/
            etc…

          • Arjan van Leeuwen

            This is possible, thanks for specifying the exact version.

            I don’t believe it’s a Windows issue since no less than five other browsers on my laptop have no such issues with these videos and others like them.

            That doesn’t really rule it out: Opera uses Windows’ system video libraries to playback H264 video, while the other browsers you mentioned don’t, they include 3rd party libraries (ffmpeg in the case of Chrome/Vivaldi, which Opera can’t redistribute with an H264 decoder included because of the expensive license required). There are actually editions of Windows – the ‘N’ versions sold in Europe – that don’t include the video libraries, and you have to install them from Microsoft.

            However from your comment I understand you have the normal Windows 7 Starter, which should be similar to other Windows 7 32-bit versions. Anything more you can tell us about it? Are you up to date with service packs? Have you tried with a clean profile?

          • Trevor Gough

            Thank you, Arjan, for your thoughtful response. It is especially helpful to hear how Opera is different than these other browsers with respect to their playing of certain video types.

            “Windows 7 Starter…Anything more you can tell us about it?”–> Not really…this OS is on my 10.1 inch Aspire One/Acer laptop. The same video playback issues occur, however, I should add on my desktop PC running on Windows Vista OS.

            “Are you up to date with service packs?” Yes.

            “Have you tried with a clean profile?” I don’t know how to do that. I can learn with a little help, though.

          • Arjan van Leeuwen

            “Have you tried with a clean profile?” I don’t know how to do that. I can learn with a little help, though.

            There are different ways to do this, but I think the quickest is to install Opera in stand-alone mode.

            Download the installer (from http://www.opera.com for example), on the first screen click ‘Options’, change the ‘Install Path’ to somewhere else eg. “C:Opera”, and change ‘Install for’ to ‘Stand-alone installation’. Opera will start after the installation using a fresh profile. Then try if the videos work. Your original Opera installation won’t be affected, and you can simply remove C:Opera once you’re done with the experiment.

            If this worked, we’ll have to figure out what in your own profile is causing it not to work.

          • Trevor Gough

            I followed your instructions here, Arjan, precisely. Even with a clean profile of Opera Stable, I still have the same video playback issues I cited earlier. I was hoping for different results in that clean profile installation.

          • Arjan van Leeuwen

            OK, so we can cross that off the list. You should have Windows Media libraries installed as I said before, but you could check if they really are here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=178358

            After that I’m out of ideas for now, not being on Windows myself makes this a bit harder. But I’ll see if we can get someone check on Windows 7 Starter.

          • Trevor Gough

            I don’t know how that link tells me if I have “Windows Media libraries installed.” I know I definitely have the most recent version of WMP, though. Thank you for your help.

            Sadly for now, back to some other browser.

    Bug in Opera 31 on Windows 10.

    Dragging a tab to create a new Windows in Windows 10, then using WinKey+Arrows to move the new Opera window around, initiating Windows 10’s app snap assist, freezes input and refreshing in the new window. Dragging the new window for a bit restores functionality.

    31 stable is more responsive than 30 and does start faster

  • ColinB1

    Just to repeat: auto update not working after ‘upgrade’ to Windows 10 – it’s now 21 hours since launch of O31 and auto-update has not worked on either my desktop or laptop. Both still show: 30.0.1835.125 – Opera is up to date.
    This is the first time that auto update hasn’t worked for recent Opera releases. The only change on both systems has been the ‘free’ update to Windows 10 (from W8 and W7 respectively).
    I think I’d like to join in the O31 experience with a manual installation unless someone wants some further diagnostic info about my system.

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      Hi Colin, starting today we will autoupdate 20% of users. Tomorrow 100% will be updated. You can always choose manual installation if you can’t wait. 🙂

  • Kanbaru Suruga

    Hey, guys.

    I want to know how to change my default search engine in the address bar and the start page in Opera 31?

    If I use the old method, change the ‘default_partner_content.json’ in the ‘resources’ folder, I will not startup my opera, it will give me a warning dialog that says ‘the .pak file is broken’. So how can I change my Default Search Engine?

  • Mladen Mladenov

    Hey guys,

    I don’t know if anybody told you this yet, but when I watch a video on Youtube with its new fancy player the mouse pointer doesn’t hide in full screen. I tried it without the extensions – same. In Chrome the pointer hides.

    Also when opening an image bigger than my window, the cursor doesn’t change into a magnifying glass, nor does it change into a hand when I hold down the spacebar to drag the picture around.

    One last thing: if you’d like us to use the NEW speed dial, at least offer us some more customisation, like removing the big Add Speed Dial button if we want – we can do that from the context menu 🙂

    Thank you for the updates 🙂

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      Anyone know how to go back to the old speed dials without the fancy colors?

      • Dan

        I found a solution. Click on one of the speed dials, then click on the heart icon at top right of page, and use the arrows to select which image you want.

        The speed dials won’t look perfect, but it will be better than the colorful boxes..

        remove or delete the wasted space please. remove also works, because we can use the url bar as search.

      • Lacedaemon

        No. Yes please. Or the solution that would work for everyone and has been said 1000 times already: The option to either put it on top/bottom/completely disable it. (You can anyway create thumbnails on your SD with beautiful icons to access History, Discover, etc, instead, which looks 10 times better and is faster to access.)

        And when disabling it, reclaiming also the wasted space from that useless search magnifier SD feature that was made only because Opera 15 didn’t believe in the power of bookmarks and had only a SD to put all sites in there, creating huge scroll down lists of thumbnails…

  • Kanbaru Suruga

    I’ve looked at some posts on the forum, and I’ve known that you fix the security bug and I can’t change my default search engine on the address bar and speed dial now through changing the ‘default_partner_content.json’. So can you provide me another way to change the default search engine in the address bar and speed dial? I don’t want to use Baidu by default in the speed dial, and I don’t want to use Google.com.hk in the address bar.

    • Jay

      I’m in the same boat. While the old way of removing default_partner_content.json every time Opera updates was annoying, at least it was possible, but not being able to remove it is plain crazy.

      I’ve never liked the “I’m quitting Opera” people, but this is partner thing actually makes me research my options 🙁

      • Kanbaru Suruga

        Too stupid now, can’t change through the json file, no any ways to change, too.

    • L33t4opera

      Hi, you can try this: go to about:opera, and copy the path to the profile, close the Opera, and navigate to the folder from the path, open the “Local State” file in your text editor (make its copy – if something goes wrong, you can overwrite the original file, with the copy), and search for:"location":{"country":"XX","country_from_server":"XX" replace “XX” with “US” (or “EN”), save the changes, and close the file, reopen the Opera, and see if this is somehow better for you.

      Additionaly, you can change the default engine to e.g. DuckDuckGo: right click on the address bar, and select “Edit Search Engines” from the context menu, hover your mouse cursor over the name of any engine from the “Default search engines” list, and click on the “Make default” button.

      • Kanbaru Suruga

        Thanks, the local state is worked. “Edit Search Engines” is no use to this.

  • Data Keeper

    If you want to speed up – revise the new tab loading methods (keep normal process priority on the all way – from user interaction until it load). Now it goes through below normal or idle priority and back again to normal priority.

  • lazaru

    Every goddam update you have to make it harder for your users to stay don’t you, this time I am talking about the undeletable search engines. If I don’t find a way to remove them I’m moving back to firefox.

    • Lojza

      My thoughts exactly, I like Opera a lot and I also understand how you make revenue, but there are so many alternatives. And I would hapilly switch if you will continue shoving crap like yahoo down the users’ throats.

    • Krysix

      Agree, I’ve always liked opera and would use it if it didn’t force me to use those search engines. Can’t delete them, can’t use their hotkeys for your own seach engines and they go after them…. Seriously?

  • teiwuz

    The native (looking) form controls used on the settings pages does not match the appearance system preference; they are blue even though graphite is used. Is this by design or an oversight?

    • Wando Schneider

      By desgin.

      • teiwuz

        Care to elaborate why? Wouldn’t native controls be the desirable goal? In 30 the controls looked fine, why the change now?

        • Wando Schneider

          I Can’t elaborate, because I don’t know why they did this change. In my point of view, they think that was room for improvement, so they created this new look and feel for the internal pages.

          • Rafael Luik

            They wanted to copy the ultra “sophisticated” “style” from Chinese browsers.

          • Wando Schneider

            if you say so…

    Ey Team,

    Speed Dial. Modern look thumbnail with “amazing” colors.

    It is USELESS when you are using Speed Dial to save bookmarks in the same DNS domain, same INTRANET. At the end you have many boxes with colors with the same text.

    opera:flags#experimental-start-page does not work anymore?

    With the new update, Opera 31, Some icons has changed to this modern look.

      This has been said 100’s of times since the new (now default & unchangeable) speed dial (start-page) was in experimental form a year ago. They like it the way it is and won’t acknowledge that it’s problematic.

      • iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

        Opera is the new Apple.

        • Lacedaemon

          I’d say it’s more of an Apple wannabe at best.

      • Bjarne Bertelsen

        The old speed dial looked much nicer. One of the mail reasons I’m using Opera is that it’s the most estetic appealing of the browsers. The new speed dial is ugly in my opinion.

      • Mon

        The new Speed Dial is uglier and the tiles are too small and I can’t read well the text of “Live news feed” extension. If I make zoom, everything looks blurry.

        I’m seriously thinking about changing my default web browser because they’ve ruined the best of Opera.

        • Dan

          Just switch to Chrome. I did. It’s fast.

    • Dan

      Anyone figure out a way to go back to the old speed dials?

      • Dan

        I found a solution. Click on one of the speed dials, then click on the heart icon at top right of page, and use the arrows to select which image you want.

        The speed dials won’t look perfect, but it will be better than the colorful boxes.

      news SD is nothing comapring to the bottom toolbar and new Discover…
      It’s hard to do this, but I must start looking for the new browser…

    In russian version Yandex search on speed dial open main page of service and not search results. Started today in Opera 30, nothing change in 31.

    • Kornelia Mielczarczyk

      I was not able to reproduce your issue here. Could you try install Opera with a clean profile and check if the problem still exist?

      • http://kidalt.tk/ dizzykei

        It fix itself after sometime, so nevermind.

      • http://kidalt.tk/ dizzykei

        Actually it comeback yesterday. I installed frigate extension and when it’s on speed deal search works just like before. When i turn it off, i again see the main page.
        DuckDuckGo also doesn’t open.
        I try to synchronize bookmarks and then reinstall Opera.

      • http://kidalt.tk/ dizzykei

        Reinstalled 31 from scratch (with geek uninstaller help) and the problem still exist. Don’t know why. Even without extensions.

  • Łukasz Janik

    I have Windows 10 and opera 31, and the Opera writes windows 8.1.

      • Abishek Naagendra

        It’s not fixed yet… I reinstalled the app too… It looks like the same old Opera… Nothing seems to be optimised for Windows 10…

          Fixed internally, not released in a public build yet.

  • eXzentrik

    There are strange design issues with the newsboxes of GBase.ch since Opera 31. In some news the news boxes are too wide:

    Example 1

    Example 2

    In others, they are okay:

    Example 1

    Example 2

    It’s 31 specific, cause the IE 11 for example renders all GBase-News correctly. And Opera 30, too.

    Here’s a screenshot example. Top: Opera 31; Bottom: IE 11

    PL: Kolejny problem z odtwarzaniem YT. Jeśli ustawię jakość HD (np 1080p) to film co jakiś czas zatrzymuje się na 1-2 sekundy pomimo tego, że pasek buforu jest daleko w przodzie. Problem u mnie występuje w nowym odtwarzaczu YT.

  • Sidney Moraes

    Opera is dropping a lot of frames in 1080p 30fps and 60fps videos on Youtube.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Any example videos?

      • https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/chas4/6-blog Chas4

        Is the frame dropping using the flash player video player?

        What is strange for me is Youtube switched me to the HTML5 player which has had big improvements

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Here YT uses the html5 player since a while ago. Sometimes there are a few dropped frames but usually nothing considerable.

          • https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/chas4/6-blog Chas4

            For me when I tried the HTML5 player in O 30 it was flaky, updated to O 31 and was given the HTML5 player by default much better

            The other question is it the NPAPI or PPAPI Flash Player (I think August 11 2015 will have a new stable version of Flash Player)

      • Sidney Moraes

        Any 1080p 60fps video on youtube.

    • Marcin Mitek

      I’ve seen some cases where number of dropped frames in 60fps reached almost 10% of all frames rendered, but I can’t reproduce it reliably. On 30 fps videos I couldn’t notice it. We will have a look, thanks for the report.

  • Jademarisa

    Same old Chrome-ish shit: not customisable, not user friendly, no menu bars, no skins, can’t see a reason to adopt this Chrome clone when I hate Chrome, you need to make a difference if you want to survive as a different browser

    • Rafael Luik

      Mouse gestures, customizable keyboard shortcuts, customizable Speed Dial and enhanced bookmark manager, sidebar, non-obtrusive download pop-up, more complete and elegant address field drop-down, OS theme and notification center (Win8+) integration, tab menu, tab previews, multiple search engines in selected text context menu, a bit of little settings, etc.
      Opera is not a Chrome clone and there’s no denying it.

      If you want to make a suggestion make it in a constructive way.

      • FoolOfATook

        It’s Chromish in that it forces stuff down your throat and constantly tries to reinvent the wheel, breaking their own product in the process, and seemingly not caring enough for the user (or their opinions) enough in the process.

      • Vux777

        you can always download any build from here
        and block update (opera_autoupdate.exe) in your firewall

        but…. I would try to see why that happens

        Just my way of dealing with it:
        -I would just save Bookmarks and Login Data from profile folder
        -uninstall Opera (check remove profile folder)
        -with Ccleaner remove all traces of Opera from machine (registry too)
        Install Opera as “standalone (USB)” in some folder and use it for a while to see if shit happens

  • Vux777

    latest stable inherited this bug from beta (mouse gestures stops working)

  • al_ghul

    Changing last days from Slimjet back to new *FAST*:)) Opera stable 31, I feel a lack of ONE REALLY comfortable thing which Slimjet owns, but not already Opera:

    popup bookmarks bar – it popups when moving mouse cursor on address bar and dissapears when moving cursor out. it’s really smart and fast, and makes website content bigger during all the time, except when selecting new bookmark from bookmarks bar, when it popup for a while and then dissapears again:)) and you don’t need typing and re-typing ANY shortcut for that!

    second things on which You devs can think is e.g switching between tabs using mouse scroll. when having many tabs open – changing them with scroll back and forth in Slimjet is really fast and easy, resembling tab preview, but works faster – it doesn’t need to render website content, mouse moving through tabs bar etc. only changes tabs without having to track and click each of them. it can be easier, more comfortable and faster, especially to preview many tabs in seeking the desired one.

    Crash after crash…..after update to 31 stable. No 64 bit version? Only 32 bit? First have to get used to Windows 10. Now Opera continually crashing? Too much! After crash, extensions disabled, mouse doesn’t work properly; no gestures, no middle button.

    • Dan

      Just switch to Chrome. I did. It’s fast.

  • Momfer1

    So now we have a 31 stable and a 31 beta. Both with the same DPI problems: a scrollbar and other website buttons with the look and feel of Windows 3.11. I hope that these issues are solved in 32 beta. I know it’s a Windows 10 problem but you have had enough time to solve this.

  • PaulC

    I have only one question: is this a joke? Old Opera was a speed demon. It was one of the fastest if not THE fastest browsers on the market. Then changes came and someone thought this awesome browser needed a redesign and tons of features were dropped only because (as the devs said in discussions) that majority of people weren’t using them. And now you’re saying you were able to cut startup time by 70% which is important for people who don’t have SSDs. So am I to assume that most people use them if it wasn’t one of the things you should focus on before? I’m struggling with slow startup times for several months already and no, your fix doesn’t work as it should for me, which is the only reason I decided to write this post. Right before that my Opera took 7 minutes to become operational. If it was just the browser I might even ignore that but this startup freezes my whole computer. So basically I can run it and go make a cup of tea. And when I come back it’s still not working. I use Windows 7 64bit which, according to Steam, is the most popular operating system, so I would assume it get’s the most attention in testing on your side. And yet you have failed me. Again.

    • Lacedaemon

      That’s what happens when you make the SD not native as it was in Opera Presto because tablets, smartphones and hipsters, and use a resource hog & white flashing and blinking engine called Chromium.

    • FoolOfATook

      7 minutes for your OS to startup? That sounds like user incompetency (or hardware failure), and nothing to do with your internet browser.

      Note also that the reason they decided to scrap it and start from scratch all over again was because a) web designers being complete turds and optimizing solely for the 3 main browsers, to the willful complete abnegation of Presto Opera and b) They didn’t think they’d be able to keep pace on engine development with the big 3. In short they though it was better they finally changed things and fixed the longstanding eternal issue that Opera was notoriously known for: compatibility.

  • Momfer1

    There is to much wrong with Opera. DPI problems on Windows 10, no scroll cursor after clicking the mouse wheel, no 64bit version, crashes on Windows 10, poor bookmark management etc.

    I now use Cyberfox. It’s breathtaking. Fully 64bit, fast, highly costomizable, very stable and most of all: It runs perfect and looks good on Windows 10.

    Opera is better and better with every release ! Congratulations 🙂
    But there is an old bug that is really annoying with flash.
    Go to a website that uses flash and right-clic. Try to go to the microphone or webcam sources and you’ll see it’s empty. Opera doesn’t show the micro or webcam you have even if you give the permission… And Opera ask for the same permission again and again. I sent a bug report for Flash VideoIO, but I discovered it’s the same for all the websites using flash.

      In the Flash Player preferences (in Control Panel on Windows or in System Preferences see if Flash is set to ask about sites or if the mic and camera is blocked for sites)

      • To Ny

        Thanks for your reply but the mic and the webcam aren’t blocked 🙁
        I’ve added a website in the “always accept” list, but nothing has changed…
        Weird! I’ve not the problem on Chrome or Firefox.

        • https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/chas4/6-blog Chas4

          Does it work again after the recent Flash Player update? Also see if the OS is allowing Mic or Webcam control

      I can see the scroll bar here and i can also use the mouse wheel or keyborad arrow keys to scroll.

      Running Opera in Windows 10.

      • Luis Alejandro GordilloMorgado

        Same setup, and the scroll bar randomly dissapears, particularly on The Verge and Polygon

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Any extensions being used?

          • Luis Alejandro GordilloMorgado

            SmoothScroll 1.5.2.5, but I tried disabling it first and still got the problem

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Does the problem happens on other pages?

          • FoolOfATook

            Protip: For troubleshooting any isseus on Chromium browsers, open a Private Window. Disables all extensions (and plugins?), and also cookies.

  • Goran

    When using facebook and scrolling down with “space”, something is wrong after FB load new posts. It automatically scrolls me up.

    I tried dev version, and same bug happens.

    I tried other browsers (Chrome, Firefox) and everything works just fine.

  • Mon

    “Thank you” for a worse Speed Dial. The tiles are too small and I can’t read well the text of “Live news feed” extension. If I make zoom, everything looks blurry.
    I’m seriously thinking about changing my default web browser because you’ve ruined the best of Opera. When I upgrade to Windows 10, if Edge works well, I will say goodbye to Opera.

    • Dan

      Yeah, changing the speed dials to fancy colorful boxes was the last straw. I switched to Chrome and it’s fast.

  • Flex Tran

    need fix high load CPU usage when playing html5 1080p video on youtube

    • Vladimir

      AMD Athlon X2 5200+ 2.7 – 1tab 99-100% load CPU – fs.to video 1080 HD

      • Lacedaemon

        No luck with old dual cores, many people here included me have reported that poor performance since O15. Chromium is just a shitty engine designed for newest CPUs only (because of the raw power only) and running 1 task only. That’s what smartphones do after all and being crossplatform was and is the #1 reason for that engine to exist.

        • Flex Tran

          Not work . i had newest CPU core I5
          Microsoft Egde 3-5% but opera 80-100% load CPU when playing 1080p
          I must used extensions to disable html5 , it drop to 8-15% now (adobe flash)

        • FoolOfATook

          From my own observations actually, Chromium seems to be an engine that has a higher resource footprint, but runs smoother as a result. I’m talking mostly as a comparison to the Gecko engine here.

          It’s also not clear that independently sandboxed processes were designed explicitly with smartphones in mind: It is conceivable and arguable that such an architecture could be beneficial in highly parallel workloads, as in the traditional, poweruser desktop environment.

          The reason for the high CPU usage here anyhow seems to be a bug, since “newest core i5” doesn’t seem like it would ever be pushed up to 99% usage decoding and rendering a 1080p video, and there are absymal hardware acceleration usage issues in Opera, even more so on the new Windows 10.

  • startpager

    please provide a method to achieve speed dial icon resizing.

    31.0.1889.99 is not good for me, as opera://flags/#experimental-start-page has now been removed. Opera is stripping away all that made Opera different and better. The last straw for me, is removing the ability to change the size of my speed dial icons. So I’m reverting to an older version until that facility is included. Either that or I’ll have to start looking into other browsers.

    • Pavel Aleksandrov

      You can zoom in/out by holding ctrl and scrolling up and down with your mouse, but yeah, actual size control would be great -.-

  • UMaster 7

    once you’ve opened extensions’ drop down menues next to the address bar the thin frame around the buttons is still there, even though the menue has been closed already, you opened another menue or you opened another tab. Only if you open a new window the frames disappear in this new window, the old window still got these mentioned frames. Tested on Win8.1×64. Screenshot: http://prntscr.com/831lum

  • eXzentrik

    New stable build on the FTP. This problem seems to be fixed now. Thanks!

    • Tomasz Procków

      You are fast 🙂 but you need to wait for changelog till tomorrow.

      • eXzentrik

        Yep, thought so. But the problem that I’ve mentioned above is indeed fixed with the new build. Tried it directly.

  • Ivanov Vano

    Where is old type express-panel?

    • ayespy

      The old speed dial is no longer available. However, you can customize the thumbnails using the heart menu in the address bar.

      • Ivanov Vano

        I can’t. Nobody can. Some of users have more than 500 web-sites icons at the speed-dial. No function reload like in Firefox or old Opera. To customize doesn’t mean to reload and to see the new content of web-site without loading whole page.

      They have initiated a review of strategic alternatives but there is nothing solid about an acquirement, although such option can’t be discarded as any company may be subject to it.

      • ayespy

        Any company may be subject to it, especially so long at it is publicly traded and its first duty is to its shareholders. People should never forget this. The first duty of a publicly traded company is to its shareholders. Generally, the officers and board of directors put themselves second (if they are ethical – if not, they actually put themselves ahead of shareholders) and customers a distant third. After the customers, generally come their “human capital,” ie their staff. Customers should never imagine that the social more of “the customer is always right” actually means anything in the age of the economic primacy of publicly traded companies.

        And you know what’s funny? Browser users, as a whole, aren’t even customers. Advertisers are customers. Our eyeballs are the goods being sold, much the same as livestock fattened for market. Feels great, don’t it?

        I have one that I would like it to refresh the image shown 1 time per day (I used to do that back in the day)

        • ayespy

          I’m not gonna say it couldn’t come back to Opera, but there’s no sign at this point that they are headed in that direction. If we are to get a timed refresh in speed dial, I fear Opera will not be the first to offer that again.

          • FoolOfATook

            And for no reason did they remove that perfectly fine feature too.

          • ayespy

            Nothing was removed from Opera. An entirely new browser was started from a clean slate, with no features at all. Anything you miss now just has not been added in the brand-new ground up rewrite. No one knows what the team may decide to add at some point.

          • FoolOfATook

            Nay, laird. The thumbnail refresh we’re talking about was a feature present in ChrOpera, that was removed in later iterations (not sure exactly when).

          • ayespy

            Hm. Don’t recall it ever being available in ChrOpera, and I’ve been here since the beginning. But, whatever…

  • Cryio

    Opera on Windows 10 has nonexistent GPU acceleration for HTML5 video. It wasn’t as good as IE11 on Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 before and it seems to be lacking completely now on Windows 10.

    I expect improvements to this !

  • Vladimir

    Will it be possible in the future to adjust the window? For example, on slow computers, when you open the window of adding the site because of extensions offered by Opera, the system begins to slow down. Is it possible to remove them from there at all?

    Not sure what’s going on, but new install of last beta last night after Win 8.1 clean reinstall doesn’t open Yahoo this morning, while every other browser does. As reported before, I’ve seen this and memory error a lot with these versions upon first opening. Then on reopening it clears up.

    Someone please remind me, how do I get more than five columns showing in Speed Dial (setting is 7 max)? Thanks,

    • ayespy

      Main menu/Settings/Browser/Start Page – and the only way to increase the number of columns is to zoom out your start page.

      • sgrandin

        Reinstall and syncing with O12 ended up with the obnoxiously large tiles. I’ve got an “–alt-high-dpi-setting=96” setting, but it appears that the only(?) way to get six or more across is to expand the screen horizontally, quite wide.

        I can see why Opera management is talking of selling when the design is as poor as this, and two years in.

  • Ivanov Vano

    New speed-dial is a piece of shit

  • Floie

    Nope…I’ll check back again in a couple of versions. I really wanted to LOVE Opera as I used to but this…..this is too much like Google Chrome for me (mixed with a touch of Microsoft plain, flat, white). I don’t want to hear that too many options are confusing or bloated because, I would say, not if done correctly. It does me no good to have a web page open 2 seconds faster if I can’t have the organization and tools I need to use the information on the page.

  • https://vivaldi.net/unity/profile/chas4/6-blog Chas4

    The stories scrolling on Facebook (when you have the window wide enough (on the right side)) cause a cpu spike and might be Facebook code bug or the code is set to refresh every 2 seconds or so (causing the cpu spikes)

  • Mutionu

    Hi

    First, thank you for your long work. I’m using Opera since 3.6 or so(I think I even paid for it at some time) and all was fine, until today.
    I upgraded Opera to version 31.0. This damn thing is unable to export bookmarks from old Opera nicely(all bookmarks are one big mess, some are missing(yes, I know that for sure)). I can not customize mouse and keyboard gestures. Some customized searches are missing. I am even unable to find “clear all data when I close Opera”(or something like that). I’m unable to turn off animated images(mostly gif) on websites.
    And so on and so on.
    You, guys, created just another Google Chrome. But in that case I rather use the original one.
    Why can’t all options of old Opera be under advanced setting?

    Sry for my english, it’s not my native language.

    • Frode P. Bergsager

      Instead of Chrome, have you checked out Vivaldi?

      • Mutionu

        Yes, I tried. It’s reminds me of Opera in it’s early days. Vivaldi is, sadly, barely usable, yet.
        Today was another, extremely frustrating, evening with new Opera. Topic was bookmarks.
        Honestly guys … it’s BS.
        Why must I keep my bookmarks as minimum in two level(first level is “My Folders”, “Speed dial” and so on). Only in second level can I create folders. And it all is sooooo slow. I have a lot of bookmarks(due my work and interest in computers and electronics) and navigating is very frustrating due it’s slowness.

        I tried several extensions … what can I say :). When I want to destroy my nerves, I go to pub. For that I do not need Opera and it’s extensions.

  • OldHickory30

    Yep, focus on the fixes….Still having issues with videos not playing on certain sites. Switch to Safari or Firefox and everything is fine! VERY frustrating, especially, since people have been complaining about that glitch for e past several releases, to no avail.

  • arne eriksen

    Hi, what’s wrong with the developement team? You got bookmarks back, but a much worse version than in old days. Ok, we can live with that, but why the hell can’t we export bookmarks, only import? Just insane. When my computer crashed 2 years ago I had saved a .adr – file, and when I got my comp back I could import my lovely bookmarks from the file. Now I have no clue where my bookmarks are saved. I wonder how smart people can make new versions of a browser and decide to make things worse than before. Ok there is an extension yhat can save bookmarks, but the crap can’t handle nested folders. Why you make things worse is beyond my little dumb head, so explain why!

    • Vux777

      there are other extensions that can handle nested folders

      I know at least one

    Woow. It’s really fast. I moved from Chrome to Opera because of RAM consumption – OS uses sth like 20-30% of RAM, but when I have opened few tabs, it’s 80% of RAM in use – it’s a big big joke from Google, really.

    Can you guys at Opera please altar the way the themes appear. For instance, the ENTIRE them on Firefox shows up at the top of the page not just in the middle where you can’t see it at all. What’s the point of using a theme if you can only see it upon opening a new tab? Makes Opera kinda boring and inferior in comparison with Firefox.
