As we approach midsummer in this area, we would like to offer a developer update which includes one feature that was frequently asked for. You may now realize it isโ€ฆ

The RSS Reader

The work on personal news is continued. This build comes with another set of changes and improvements. As an important addition, we also bring the first version of RSS support!
Even though the functionality is very limited at the moment, you can already take it for a spin. Just click on +Add sources button and paste URL into search field (for instance: https://www.nasa.gov/rss/dyn/breaking_news.rss). Once recognized as valid source, you can add it (in case it doesnโ€™t work for you, please post the url in comments).

RSS1

Custom RSS can be read in both timeline and stacked view. However, the estimated reading time is not available for those sources.

RSS2

The feature is pretty rough on the edges. But hey, this is what developer is for ๐Ÿ™‚ We know there are the following issues and they will get addressed in upcoming updates:

  • Missing โ€œRemove from my sourcesโ€ button but thereโ€™s a workaround: Go to +Add sources paste the same URL and untick it.
  • When combined with other sources, article age is not taken properly into account and timeline gets messed up.
  • URL is displayed instead of RSS title (header and sidebar).

Please let us know what you think.

Chromecast

Maybe not as much expected as the RSS feature, but still very important – today, we are also offering Chromecast finally working in this developer version. Specifically, when you install the Google Cast extension from the store and have the special device attached to your display and operating in the same Wi-Fi network, the device should be detected and sending links should work.

Other changes

At last! We have fixed the Windows 64bit issue and today, we are offering the experimental version.
Chromium has been updated to 53.0.2783.2.

Known issues

  • The opera:about page sometimes freezes the browser.

    RSS is for sure a great addition to Opera.

      Should be working. But if it for some reason fails for you, please update manually, from the link above.

      • ะ–ะตะฝั ะข…

        It work after update on chrome://about

  • INFINUM

    absolutely useless feature.

  • ouzowtf

    Should the Search Popup be shown not only when selecting and double-clicking (select current word) on a text, but also when triple-clicking (select current “sentence”)?

    • Aneta Reluga

      Hmm, valid question. To tell the truth, I’m aware only about the double click implementation while the triple click is left alone, but I’ll ask to be sure. By the way, what’s your opinion? Should it appear also for triple click?

      • ouzowtf

        I just realized it by accidentally triple-clicking. Maybe it “should” appear then too to have a consistent behavior?!
        But I’m using this functionality very very seldom to be honest.

      • Nekomajin43

        I think it should work with triple clicks too. One can select or copy a whole sentence, not just a few words.

        But the hover looks ugly with the | separator in the popup. I think you should change the text to icons and use a hover effect on the icons themselves.

        • Aneta Reluga

          Thanks a lot to you both. Both ideas were recorded as DNA-56058

  • Jari Karjalainen

    Is there some backdoors developed yet? Thank god there is Vivaldi available.

  • Ralf Brinkmann

    I miss the old skin or UI for the local pages, like the settings page or the flags page. I forgot the keyword. Now everything is on the left side and I have to turn my head all the time. I used to have the other skin or UI, where everything is centered on the screen. Where is it?

    And for the download manager page I want the very old skin back where I could use the keyboard (TAB) to focus and press the “Clear download list” button. No joke.

  • ะฎะปะธั

    You made the borders thinner? This is nice. They’re still thick for private windows though. Also, if I disabled VPN feature in Settings, shouldn’t the icon be gone also in private tabs?

    • Aneta Reluga

      The latter one is by design. As for the border width difference though – a valid issue, thanks.

  • Chromecast

    No way. I thought this day would never come.

  • senja1

    Are you sold Presto to Chinese?

    • Zin

      Wrong question. You should have asked when they gonna implement the lost features of Opera 12 like IRC or addition/removal of buttons on toolbar, address bar or tab bar or even this RSS they had to add back. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I seriously hope the features above (and all the others) come back so i can use new opera instead of the 12.18.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        I would say that, currently, the chances of an IRC client in Opera are near zero.

        IRC is not something widely used nowadays to worth the efforts in implementing a native client.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        Regarding customization, i guess it may be improved within time but it will always be kinda simple.

      • + option to open from bookmark bar with left click. Native Opera is a real chore to use on laptop without a mouse.

  • L33t4opera

    Hi Maciej, thanks for the new update and fixes, it’s quite nice build, and also on Linux the VPN works better now ๐Ÿ˜‰
    However, I liked the old layout for the internal pages.
    Is there any chance, that you can re-implement displaying of the amount of All/Changed/Unchanged flags?

    New flags:
    – opera:flags#media-detachable-view-native-button-disabled
    Disables native video detach button.

    – opera:flags#new-audio-rendering-mixing-strategy
    Use the new audio rendering mixing strategy.

    The #other-webui-new-layout flag has been removed.

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      | The #other-webui-new-layout flag has been removed.

      Was this the flag for my problem (everything on the left side instead of centered on internal pages)?

      • L33t4opera

        Hi Ralf, yep, it seems to be the one.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          ๐Ÿ™

    • Have fun and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Devocalypse

    Cheers for the new x64 build.
    Add RSS seems to truncate long feed urls to the length of the searchbox making it unusable in those cases.

    • thanks! Internal bug number is DNA-56023

  • It seems that right now it doesn’t support displaying images for custom feeds, at least it didn’t for the ones I tried. Example: http://www.webupd8.org/feeds/posts/default (tested in Ubuntu 16.04 64bit).

  • Awesome to hear that you are adding Chromecast support. Custom RSS is also a very welcome addition, specially if the custom feeds are also saved and synced to the user’s Opera account.

    Now, the only thing missing in Opera is the ability to install extensions from the Chrome Web Store, since there are (unfortunately) many extensions which are not available on the Opera add-ons website. And yes, I’m aware of the “Download Chrome Extension” add-on (https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/download-chrome-extension-9/?display=en), however the last time I tried it had the major shortcoming of not keeping the extensions up-to-date after installation. You had to remove them and reinstall them regularly, which is a nuisance and a potential security risk.

    • SuppliedRelic

      I think that the information for updates is embedded into each extension installed from the Chrome Web Store. There shouldn’t be any issues with keeping them up-to-date.

  • Eugene B.

    What version of Chromium is this build based on? I know I can find it on opera:about page, but I don’t want to open it cus it freezes the browser sometimes.

    • Aneta Reluga

      53.0.2783.2

      • Eugene B.

        Thanks!

    • Kornelia

      The freeze should not happen so let us know if it’s still a problem for you. We had such bug but managed to solve it. I would like to know if it’s still reproducible somewhere. Thanks.

      • Eugene B.

        Doesn’t happen to me on a clean install. So everything is fine now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    R Yes Yes ! ๐Ÿ™‚
    But still no, no… ๐Ÿ™

    I was trying to add some of the feeds I have on feedly to compare the two. For instance, I can’t add this feed: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod.rss – I don’t get anything to tick on to activate it and add it to my sources.
    Also, when clicking on “My sources”, I get an icon going round and round but nothing actually shows up. If clicking on “Top 50” I see the recommended news or whatever that is; If clicking on any one of the individual feeds I get a message “End of News Stream” and then 3 recommended news from other websites…

    I’m on Windows 7, 64 bit version. I’m also behind a proxy…

    • Vux777

      it looks like a bug in fetching rss source
      http://prntscr.com/bva534

  • My browser freezes and suddenly shuts itself. I don’t know if it is something that i caused, but i would be grateful if you fix freezes. Thanks a lot for other solutions of problems.

  • jho

    Hm, since yesterday, like some guys here as well, my browser freezes and crashes. But only on facebook. I use the latest beta version.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          And what about Settings => Websites => Plug-Ins?

          • Tratsing

            Can you try out the next point above it (“Detect and run…”?

          • Tratsing
          • Leonardo Gomes

            Do you have any other PDF plug-in installed rather than the Chrome’s PDF Viewer? Even if not listed under opera:plugins.

          • Tratsing

            I have multiple PDF viewing softwares (iSkysoft PDF Editor, FoxitPhantom PDF, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) installed in operating system but no PDF plug-in as far as I know. After installing Opera Developer, then about 2 weeks I could open pdf files with Opera Developer fine but now it shows this grey screen.

  • Alex Wazovskiy

    How do I find the RSS reader? ๐Ÿ˜€ I have no “Personal News” section icon in Opera Developer.

    P.S. I tried to reinstall Opera Developer, but stiil no “Personal news” page and RSS.
    Opera Developer 40.0.2296.0 Win7 x32

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Menu > News. Or click on the News icon at the navbar.

      • Alex Wazovskiy

        I have no News in Menu and no News icon in navbar ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        • Leonardo Gomes

          You can enable the News button in the navbar in the start page settings.

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            There is no tick for Personal news in starpage settings. Seriously. WTF?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            In ‘navigation’ there is no ‘news’ to check? That’s strange.
            Are you using Opera developer 40? Maybe you have News disabled in flags?

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            All news-related options in flags is set in its defaults. Which one is responsible for personal news?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            in Start Page settings, what do you see under ‘navigation’ ?

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            Express panel, tabs, extensions, settings, bookmarks, bookmarks, history, downloads checkboxes.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            In the bottom of Start Page settings there is a “News’ check-box. If it’s checked, then uncheck it.

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            OMG, now the News section on sidebar has appeared. So unintuitive. Thanks for help. Now I can test RSS reader.

          • RafaellaG

            check opera://flags/?search=personal#personal-news.
            and opera://flags/?search=personal#rss-in-personal-news.

            Should be enabled per default.
            If not, enable it and restart Opera.

            Then open “Customise start page” on speed dial (top right). Open Navigation and check News.

            Click on News on the left side on speed dial.
            Click on Add sources and enter the URL in the “Search Catalogue” field. Add it if it’s valid.

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            Yes, they’re already enabled, but still no checkbox for News in start page options.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Do you have advanced settings enabled in Settings?

          • Alex Wazovskiy

            Yes.

  • Where to download the chromecast extension? It’s not available in the opera store.

  • Nekomajin43

    Finally! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now, a few remarks:

    How can I remove the preset sources (BBC, CNN, Huffington Post, etc.) from my list? It is a must!

    Also a must to be able to remove/turn off the recomended section from the timeline.

    OK, I say it otherwise: I’d like to remove everything from the reader what is not added manually by me. No top stories, no recomendations, no preset sources.

    Will you provide a pageAction to detect (and add) RSS sources? It can be a setting turned off by default, but it is also very important.

    Will you provide an option to organize the sources with tags/categories?

    • pauloaguia

      Being able to add the RSS directly from the webpage is what I missed the most from the old Opera.
      My suggestion would be to do something similiar to the “Heart” button, at the end of the URL window to add a bookmark. Either create a new “Add Feed” button that only shows up when the page declares it has some feed content; or add some aditional option in the heart menu, to not only bookmark the webpage but also subscribe to the feeds it declares (personaly I think the separate button would be less confusing, but I’m keeping an open mind).

      • Nekomajin43

        That’s what I suggested with the pageAction thing. I little RSS icon showing up in the right side of the address bar if the page has any feed source defined in its head.

    • A. R.

      Customization in Opera is very limited – why? Opera makes money from search and news sources.

      Remember that primarily Opera in an ad company. They sell ads and user data.

      That’s why we have these features that add Opera’s ability to track users, such as ad-blocker, VPN, Turbo…

      • Leonardo Gomes

        Except for the two or three browsers sponsored by big companies, all others get their revenues basically on the same form: searches and pre-installed bookmarks and/or bookmarks.

        Opera is not an ad company and also they don’t sell user data. It would be against the law to sell user data.

        • A. R.

          Well I’m not so sure about that – not in every country, and not in every industry. Yes such as health companies can’t sell user data, but my telecom/ISP can. And I reside in Scandinavia. My ISP can sell either my email address or mobile phone number – but at least I have the option to choose which one!

          Opera is not a telecom/ISP. Opera (Mediaworks) is an ad company.

          I don’t think that restrictions on user data are so tight with software companies. And they can always setup a proxy company and place such as ad-blocking servers (or VPN) to countries without laws prohibiting Opera selling user data.

          Maxthon and UCbrowser have been caught spying on users… By state agencies. I mean spying – not the ones who caught. Anyhow..

          Anyhow – our new homeland China – and Asia in general should be able to provide the legal jungle.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Opera Mediaworks is a different company.

  • Matheus Bombonato

    Sidebar Extensions need some attention:
    – Customizable width for each sidebar extension.
    – Persistence. I hate the fact we have to reload every time I reopen it.
    – We need an approach like whe webpanels from Vivaldi. Something easier to use to avoid the creation of several useless sidebar extensions just to wrap a website.

    • Nekomajin43

      Huge +1

      The sidebar API lacks many features, and there are visual bugs what were reported months ago.

      • Matheus Bombonato

        Yep… it’s that kind of feature Opera releases and then stop working on it. Just because it’s there they think is enough.
        “But let’s work on the Personal News for 6 months in a row. People really need this” ๐Ÿ™

        • Nekomajin43

          Exactly my thoughts.

        • reiner1302

          totally agree!!!!!
          there are many other sources for personalized news.

        • A. R.

          Personalized news and news in general are are a money making features. No wonder you can’t add your own news sources. Same thing why one can’t add custom search engines as default.

          After all – Opera in an ad company. They sell ads and user data.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            The new RSS reader allows you to add your own news sources.

    • Aneta Reluga

    2. H264 still not working if we use custom chromium browser or simply have libffmpeg.so library from chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra in custom dir, or if we unpack it in other directory than default /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libs/.

    So please make this like with path to flash. Add to file in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/opera-developer/resources/ffmpeg_preload_config.json
    new line with path like this:
    /usr/lib/chromium-browser/ and /usr/lib/chromium-browser/libs and /usr/share/chromium-browser and maybe few more like in Flash not only one.

    After selecting multiple tabs, you can close them or update. Very convenient!

    • A. R.

      We need Tab Stacking – with group options.

  • Herr Pietrus

    As I’ve told – Opera news is good for reading news. ๐Ÿ™‚ But for reading “other” RSS sources? Some entries are really long and we are unable to read them without going to the source site, we cannot mark entries as read, delete them… It’s nice addition if we want to have really personal NEWS catalog, but Smart RSS is still needed ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Denyer

      I don’t see how the Opera take on it works with 100+ feeds. You’d never be able to keep track of anything! Until it has an O12 / QuiteRSS style UI it’ll remain a novelty for those who can’t be bothered to visit the BBC homepage directly ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Raylan Givens

    The only 2 extensions I want for my browser are built-in in Opera… Ad Blocker and Mouse Gestures. God Dammit, just became my main browser, especially now that Ad Blocker Phase 3 is working like a charm. The only browser I might consider as primary is Edge when these 2 extensions are gonna be available. Time will tell. Thanks a lot for this great browser and great design -squared and windows 10 native-like.

    I have a question, though… What will happen if I add “Easylist without Element Hiding rules” and “EasyPrivacy without International filters” lists? Will it count as additional filters or it will cancel out the built-in Easylist and EasyPrivacy?

    Also, when is it planned the x64 version to be in stable form -the only reason I keep using dev edition.

    P.S. 1: Ad Blocker Phase 4 -Please give us the ability to remove the counter from the address field and generally stop counting. Even less resources will be used.

    P.S. 2: Also, why not add a third option in the new pop-up menu about in-line translation or lead us to Google translate? That would be great.

  • Alex Wazovskiy

    Glad the RSS Reader has got its first shapes, now I’m tested it a bit and now I have my to do list for the Reader developers:
    1. Support for MediaWiki Atom feeds (won’t loading for me)
    Examle: https://ru.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=feedwatchlist&allrev=1&wlowner=Alex+Wazovskiy&wltoken=ae721a3a1fe71bb1332776283e3fa7083b08adf4&feedformat=atom
    2. Support for YouTube channels feeds (also won’t loading)
    Example: https://www.youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?channel_id=UCF1gtrOI0W19IHl9axj1-GA
    3. Desktop notifications when new items is discovered (I’m using rss reader to keep an eye on sites updates (and this blog too ๐Ÿ™‚ );
    4. A favicon loading for each feed;
    5. An icon badge with count of unread items in each feed;
    6. Ability to group feeds into folders;
    7. Ability to read items content directly in Personal news page;
    8. A message when adding RSS feed is failed;
    9. Loading idicator for recently added feeds, but with no loaded items yet;
    10. When you open direct link to RSS feed, the browser should load the feed, and show it’s contents with “Subscribe” button.

    P. S. Before today I imagined RSS feed items will be in speeddial’s news.

    • Thanks for feedback. Regarding problems with your RSSes, that’s due to limit of characters in the searchbox – already noted DNA-56023.

        So Opera will keep its name for the desktop and mobile browser under new ownership but the rest of the company will need another name right? And Boilsen is out of the desktop/mobile game. All of this sounds so exciting… not.

  • quark

    Win 10. This build (both x32 and x64) crashed on every html document including opera system pages (about, speed dial, etc.), dev tools, even background extension processes. Same in private mode. Had to revert to previous one (which was not that easy to find since all links in this blog lead to the latest dev version and not the specific build)

    • Ralf Brinkmann

      Sounds as if there is something wrong on your system. Maybe you should try to close Opera, rename the profile folder (for testing purposes only) and restart Opera. Opera will create a new virgin profile folder. Is the problem still there?

      • quark

        Still crashing. By the way it’s not that Opera crashes itself as a whole – it’s just shows the “page crashed” page whatever you do.

        • Ralf Brinkmann

          That’s what Opera should do. It puts every opened tab in a single process so that only one tab is killed instead of the whole browser in case of problems. But it’s not ok that you have these problems on internal pages and not on normal web pages. At this moment I don’t know what to do. But for future searches: You can find all versions of Opera here: http://get.opera.com/ftp/pub/

    Adblocker is not working again on http://arenabg.ch/torrents/
    or http://arenabg.com/torrents/

    new windows, almost on every click grrr

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It doesn’t seem related to ad-blocker. It seems more related to pop-up blocker.

      Those pop-ups triggered by a click on a link may not be that easy to block.

      • beBoss

        Yep, but few versions before pop-up blocker worked almost 99%, now with this build it’s like it’s not working at all!

  • Thibault

    Since one month vpn on Opera dev no work I see “Unauthorized access.”, “Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden)”. What’s happening ? I have windows 10 32 bits.

    • Kornelia

      Sorry for that. It’s a known issue and our server team has it on their radar already. The work is still in progress…

      • Thibault

        Ok thank you.

  • sanek

    Is this feature will be added to Opera Mini?

    • Kornelia

      This questions should be asked directly on mobile forum since we do not have such information here.

      • sanek

        Thank you for answer. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Which one? In theory, MIni has a RSS reader. But, as said, it’s better to ask in Mobile team blog or in the forum.

  • MsDs

    Is there anyone else experiencing any of the following on mac OS? :
    1. Rendering artefacts (eg. on gmail) since this version (40.0.2296.0).
    2. Page crashes when a youtube video ends.

    • yes, experiencing the same problems. Happens on Google Inbox and bunch of other sites ๐Ÿ™

    • patkoscsaba

      Yes, I can confirm. I reported a bug report.

  • reiner1302

    Browser settings: when can we have the option: open links in new foreground tab.

    • redfox

      I have been asking for it for a long time … like many Chrome users. Using an extension is not an optimal solution.

      • reiner1302

        it would be interesting to get a comment from the developers team why they don’t implement this feature.
        may be the personal news have a higher priority than basic functions, like polish sidebar functionality.

  • Nerdebeu

    Problem solved, sorry, I went away, away, away

    • L33t4opera

      Hi Nerdebeu, you need to untick the checkbox on the left of “News” in “Custimize start page” ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Nerdebeu

        Yes I found as a real and strong man ๐Ÿ˜‰
        But this is not logical! It is necessary to uncheck the news to customize the news. We live in a crazy time! Thanks for the reply anyway.

  • Why are you guys take so long to release Stable 39? Even if it take long time to release it will still be buggy when released…

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It’s taking the usual time to be released.

  • Nachiketa Ramesh

    Thanks for fixing 64bit seriously.

  • Will the RSS Reader support sync?

    I actually want it to support Feedly. but just sync is ok

    • Feature development is not over yet. That’s why the more feedback we get the better we’ll be able to make it for you.

      • postdante

        Feedly support is a must if you want to support RSS. As well as “Full article read” mode

  • Gregor Schiemann

    Two major issues for me in this build:
    – backspace key does not navigate backwards
    – embedded videos which require flash plugin not playable

    • pauloaguia

      The backspace key was introduced a few builds ago – apparently a chance in chromium. I found it very anoying too. But you can just add that key mapping on your settings and it stays through upgrades…

      • Gregor Schiemann

        I’m on the x64 build which missed the last couple of updates, so i only came across the backspace issue today. Mapped the shortcut, so that’s sorted, thanks for the tip!

  • Blapidoup

    I always though it was a basic RSS reader without the possibility to add custom ones. I am glad it’s going into that direction.
    It’s still a very rough version but I hope it will be great in the future.

    One thing that I Have been waiting for years is the possibility to import the RSS database of Opera 12 to this new Opera, I hope that when the RSS get more love it will finally be implemented.

  • Druszlak

    Opera conquered our hearts. There is only one feature left to conquer investors hearts: tab stacking!

    ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • A. R.

      The Chinaman should be able to throw some Gold Bricks for O to recode Tab Stacking. We certainly are throwing our data now to China! For a private equity firm!

    • Blapidoup

      Don’t forget “tab minimising” ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Amit

    After 40.0.2296.0 all GUI elements have zoomed by 150%. Also search|copy pop is no working. Is these two due to 64bit mess?

    • RafaellaG

      If you use Windows, certainly not.
      I use the 64-bit version myself. All is by 100% and search/copy pop-up is also working fine.
      And it’s certainly no ‘mess’^^

  • UMaster 7

    thank you so much for RSS feed and chromecast ๐Ÿ˜€

  • A. R.

    Tab Stacking – please!

  • Denyer

    So… hows about those tabs on the left hand side?

    Please give more effort to 64x version.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What do you mean by ‘more efforts’ ?

      • Ahmed AL-Jaber

        prioritize .. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • _artem_

    something strange is when you open link in new tab.. it’s somehow not visible, or sometimes it opens in new window instead.. when you close then tab, on the same place popups then the tab you opened before (link -> open in new tab)

    drag’n’drop tabs doesn’t work sometimes

  • oic

    could we config recently closed button to show more than 10 recently closed tabs
    option to not see open tabs on the list

  • Holub Ivan

    Opera 40 have so many important updates. thx =D

  • Tomasz Skonieczny

    Chromecast casting does not work in my case – it finds easily Chromecast device but when I try to cast – TV shows blank screen for a while then “blue” error message that Chomecast is not able to connect to my device. Casting from Chome works perfecty.

    • Mark Taylor

      i to am having the same problem although i can get you tube to cast

  • siamak

    Hi
    for me it just 2 more things missing from opera 12.x to satisfy me to migrate to New opera
    1. Nickname for bookmarks
    2.toggle panel for extention sidebar —–> Very Important
    Can I exept this two any soon? please any of Devs reply me, Thanks.

  • led9ru

    Even nothing to complain about, hi developers, have nice day ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Johnny Seven

    Maybe I missed a post…:) but VPN for me refuses to connect on any site in the latest builds and only gives me ‘Singapore’ as a choice in the drop down menu…apologies if I missed an announcement somewhere.

  • Victordan

    The browser doesn’t recognise Adobe Flash Player, because every single time I go to pages like Spotify, it requires me to install Adobe Flash, although I’ve already installed and re-installed it thousand times

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Do you have Turbo or VPN enabled by chance?

      • Victordan

        Yes, I do. Because Spotify is not available in my country, so I’ve got to choose to stick with this Dev Browser. But how do you know that, is there any solution?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Turbo and VPN enable ‘click to play’ and Spotify seems to not work well when that option is enabled.
          Try adding Spotify as an exception in the plug-ins area in Settings.
