A year ago, we set out to explore what web browsers might look like in years to come. Now, you can try Opera Neon – a concept browser that gives you a glimpse into the future of desktop browsers.

Today’s web browsers are not as fresh as they used to be

At Opera, we have been building web browsers for more than 20 years. We are very aware that some parts of the web browsers we know today are nothing more than tributes to the last millennium – a time when the web was mostly made up of documents and pages. But the web is changing fast, and so are people’s expectations for how apps and web pages should behave.

 

Opera Neon is born



To bring our vision to life, we put together a team of talented developers and designers to work on a unique prototype browser. We created thousands of concepts, drawings, iterations, versions and interface designs.

Today, we can finally show you Opera Neon. It is a concept browser – an experimental browser that envisions the future of web browsers similar to the way concept cars predict the future of automobiles. Like the Opera browser, Opera Neon is built on top of the Blink engine, but unlike any other browser, Opera Neon has been built from scratch to bring you cool effects and animations without slowing down your experience.

What’s fun and fresh in Opera Neon?

Opera Neon is packed with fun ways to interact with web content, including the ability to drag and push things around, and to even pop content out of the web and save it.

Here are some new features you won’t have seen in a browser before:

  • A new start page that uses your desktop wallpaper as its background.
  • A sidebar with its own video player, image gallery and download manager.
  • A vertical, visual tab bar on the right side of the browser window that makes it easier to distinguish between tabs.

  • An intelligent system that automatically manages your tabs. Like gravity, frequently used tabs will float to the top, while less important tabs will sink to the bottom.
  • A completely new omnibox that supports top search engines and open search.

We’ve also added new ways to enjoy web content:

  • Video pop-out, which lets you play videos while you browse other web pages.

  • Snap-to-gallery lets you snapshot and crop any part of a web page and save it to the gallery for later.

  • Split screen mode lets you seamlessly view and interact with two pages at once.

It’s beautiful and it’s smart

Here’s how to manage bubble tabs:

  • To open a new tab, click the plus icon on the left sidebar (the open tab will be highlighted).
  • To add a favorite site to your tab bar, drag and drop the bubble there.
  • To minimize a tab, click on the bubble or click the plus icon on the left sidebar.
  • To close a tab, click on the x icon next to the bubble.

You’ll find several other icons on the left sidebar; one of these is the player icon. This gathers together tabs that are currently playing music and videos.

The camera icon on the left sidebar lets you to take a snapshot of the page, which then lands in your gallery under the landscape icon. You’ll find all your snaps there.

While Opera Neon has lots of new features – and many of the Opera browser features you know and love – there are some key features we have not included, such as our native ad-blocker, VPN and the ability to add extensions. The reason for this is simply that Opera Neon is a concept browser, built for experimentation and play.

A little something extra

Opera Neon wipes away your desktop clutter by bringing your computer’s wallpaper into the browser. Or, if you want to go full-Neon, we’ve collaborated with top graphic artist Luke Choice to create two free Neon-inspired wallpapers.

The future will be here sooner than you expect

Opera Neon is a concept browser – a vision of what browsers could become. It is not designed to replace the current Opera desktop browser. However, we do plan to incorporate some of its best new features into Opera for computers as early as spring 2017.

Jump in and play, then let us know what you think of Opera Neon!

  • Слоупок

    Like Yandex Browser two years ago?

    • Olli

      Yeah, reminds me of that failed experiment as well. Some nice UI ideas are in there but overall usability isn’t great and it certainly isn’t thought for power users. Still, it’s nice to see that some companies still develop new ideas for the desktop computer.

  • Leonardo Gomes

    Cool.

  • Nico

    Awesome, can’t wait to try it!

    However, the link to the Wallpaper isn’t working. Could you please check and fix it? Thank you!

    • Sebastian Kamieniarz

      Thanks for the info! Fixed.

  • its awesome i am just trying this

  • Юлия

    Yandex tried something similar few years ago. It.. didn’t work for me. There are users (like me) who have 100+ tabs open, some even idle for a month, it’s stuff that I read in pieces every now and then, and I see no reason to close the tab, I bought a PC that can handle such workloads so I wouldn’t have to deal with such concerns. I need good tab management, it’s vital for a browser.

    A good bookmark manager is also a must (Opera/Blink doesn’t have one, neither Chromium for that matter). I currently have 6103 bookmarks. A honey-comb-like speed dial is not going to cut it for me..

    • Stein Peeters

      Use Pocket if you want to read something later!

      • Юлия

        I prefer local sorage, I don’t like cloud dependent solutions.

        • Which browser you are using now?

          • Юлия

            I use different browsers for different tasks., right now I’m posting from FireFox. I use Chromium and Opera/Blink as well.

          • I asked because I wanted to know which you use for managing bookmarks. My bookmarks are still on Opera 12 but I guess I’ll import them on Vivaldi now that it shows the structure when searching.

          • Юлия

            Oh, yeah, nothing still comes close to Opera 12’s bookmarks manager. I keep all my bookmarks in FireFox and manage them there, and every now and then export them and import on other browsers. I rely mostly on search bar suggestions, so it’s not mandatory to be sorted on other browsers.

            For instance Chromium adds all those bookmarks in a folder called imported bookmarks and then I have to get out all the subfolders in root directory and also merge the ones in the “boormarks toolbar” folder with the actual bookmarks toolbar of the said browser. It’s still less of a pain than managing them directly on a Chromium browser.

          • Yes, on Vivaldi I’ve added a few bookmarks and it has been working fine. But now I want to import the ones from O12 as it seems Vivaldi bookmark manager is closer to O12; and the last time I imported them the structure was kept. But I have not tested it much.

            I don’t even bother importing on Chromium because the bookmarks sucks and now I’m only using it for testing.

          • LamiaLove

            Yes, you should totally try Vivaldi, but you should use the snapshots until tab management is how you like it.
            People there are obsessed with bookmarks or something and they just released a new snapshot with some cool bookmarks search feature that I couldn’t care less about.
            I totally recommend trying the latest Vivaldi snapshot (NOT the stable version) for the latest and greatest in bookmarks management.

          • Юлия

            I’ll look after. Although last time I tried it, it felt quite heavy.

          • LamiaLove

            Did you get the chance to try the latest snapshot yet? https://vivaldi.net/en-US/teamblog/211-map-your-keyboard-shortcut-for-screenshots-only-in-vivaldi-browser-snapshot-1-7-725-3

            What do you mean it felt heavy last time you tried it?
            When did you try it?

          • Vivaldi uses a few more RAM than other browsers, at least when comparing without extensions. I only have four in Vivaldi, while I had 13 in Opera 40+, and I have 10 in Firefox which just makes them surpass by far Vivaldi.

            It’s relative, I still use O12 but when I need to access some sites that don’t work on Presto I much prefer to use Vivaldi because of some things like a real paste & go, side panels, closed tabs list (aka trash), tab stacks, and customisable tab navigation and creation.

          • Юлия

            Felt like my PC was struggling to run it. UI was sluggish. I think the most recent version I tried was 1.3 or 1.4
            There’s also the DownThemAll addon on FireFox, which doesn’t have an equivalent on Chromium. Unless they implemented the “Links” feature from Opera v12.

          • LamiaLove

            I saw people asking for this, but I don’t know if and when it will be implemented. By the way things are going, I wouldn’t really be surprised if it will be implemented.
            You could subscribe to their blog, because they mention every change done In each snapshot or stable version they release. You just have to read through the list of changes/fixes.

            Now you made me curious. I want to see if they might already have that implemented.

          • LamiaLove

            Anyway, even if you DO get the links feature in Vivaldi, would it really be as good as DownThemAll?
            There are lots of alternatives to DownThemAll, but hardcore fans say they are not as good.
            Was Links from Opera as good as DownThemAll?
            Are none of those Chrome extensions good enough?

          • Юлия

            No, it would be far more limited to what down them all can do, but enough to save resources like images or gif files in bulk from the current page. DTA can can go furher accessing subpages, then downloading from those. DTA is also a good download accelerator. While your connection may be fast enough, you can still encounter servers where your download would go with like 20kB/s or so. DTA could* solve this problem – once I had to download a 1,6 GB file and it was painfully slow, I think it was less than 20kB/s, but with DTA I was getting around 300kB/s. It does that by splitting the file and downloading it in multiple parts. You can change that in settings.

            could* because some sites won’t allow concurrent dowloads from the same IP

          • LamiaLove

            So, are there no other Chrome extensions that come close?
            I saw some very pessimistic discussions about the future of DTA caused by Firefox changing the extensions framework.

            Also, I’m just curious, what do you usually use DTA for? I mean, I for one couldn’t imagine regularly using DTA.

          • Юлия

            To my knowledge, no. It’s generally a better download manager, has more features like pause/resume/retry if failed, it integrates nicely with FireFox (context, menus, etc), filters stuff like audio/video content within a page so you can download it, etc.. I have downloaded thousands of wallpapers from wallbase (now the site’s gone though) in bulk using DTA.

          • ratamies
          • ratamies

            Yes, in Opera 42 it’s painful to use search in bookmarks: find bookmark, open it in new tab, click bookmark button, click “Show in bookmarks” 🙁

  • Is there any estimate for the Linux version?

    • Cqoicebordel

      Sure, already available at vivaldi.com 😀

      • Thanks, I’ll test it!

        • Dimitris Dafalias™

          He’s joking!Vivaldi is another browser!

  • It would be amazing if I can pin more than two tabs or can make something like layouts with tabs.

  • Can’t install via proxy under windows.

  • Michael Pürmayr

    The left sidebar (video player, image gallery and download manager) looks great, I hope it will be included in the opera desktop browser.

    The Split-Screen thing can be very cool for some use cases.

    On the other side: Tab bar on the right really only is usable for casual users who just have a few tabs open. Therefore, this already makes it unusable for me. I hope the left sidebar and the split-screen make it into mainline opera desktop, so normal users can enjoy them too 🙂

    (the Neon-Concept may well appeal to young, casual users very well, I hope it does not draw too much attention away from the normal desktop browser however)

    • Michael Pürmayr

      Forgot to mention: The snapshot-feature is really really good. please bring this to “normal” desktop opera!

      • LamiaLove

        I never understood that feature. When is it good other than reporting bugs found on webpages?
        Vivaldi introduced this some time ago and everybody was ecstatic.

        • Michael Pürmayr

          The way it is implemented here, it has an additional functionality: it is like a visual, short term(?) bookmark, because in the image-viewer tab on the left sidebar, the link to the webpage the screenshot is taken from is combined with the image itself.

          The most important improvement I think is, that compared to other screenshot tools I am not leaving the context of the browser. That makes it easier to screenshot someting and immediately reuse it for sharing in a chat that is open in a tab. At the moment this is too much of a hassle to do with external screenshot tools.

  • Heinz Rüdiger

    “The reason for this is simply that Opera Neon is a concept browser, built for experimentation and play.”
    there is no more web without an adblocker…”concept” isnt an excuse to miss those “Features”, it is essential to any browser

  • Cjcr

    I’m impressed. I don’t know if I like it or don’t, but I am impressed.

    It support extensions? or will support it?

  • Cqoicebordel

    “Here are some new features you won’t have seen in a browser before”

    Seriously ?! Have you looked at Vivaldi ?
    Vertical, visual tab bar on the right side ? Check
    Split screen mode ? Check
    Snapshot and crop any part of a web page ? Check
    Omnibox ? Check

    So. As you are stating it, the future of the browser is here, and it’s vivaldi.com, that’s right ?

    • tafugate

      as a longtime opera user, i’ve tried really hard to like vivaldi. but between the wasted space at the top of the screen to the webpage gyrations while loading, i can only take a minute at a time before i return to opera beta.

      neon seems to load pages quickly, but the ads have to go.

      • LamiaLove

        I am so totally waiting for ads to go so all those warriors like yourself will start paying subscriptions for each website they use.

        • tafugate

          i don’t mind ads, llamalover, i just don’t like ads that slow down page loading and popups that you don’t read and just hit x, so they’re worthless anyway. i just did a quickie search on how to make money on websites without ads, and came up with scads of ideas. so the objective isn’t so much joe q. public just suck it up and endure, the objective is for webpage designers to enter the 21st century and stop grinding the world wide web to a screeching halt.

          • LamiaLove

            Whatever you say, noble warrior.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Well, the first two used to be (original) Opera features.

      • Cqoicebordel

        Agreed. That’s why I think “Here are some new features you won’t have seen in a browser before” is an outright lie.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, you can see it as a joke. 🙂

          Anyway, I guess UI and design are the keywords here.

          • Cqoicebordel

            Yeah, I agree. They did a good job on design (not so much on UX, but that’s another story). I just HATE lies. Especially when they are made on purpose.
            Here, they are clearly stated with a commercial purpose, without any truth behind it, to fool their users. And I hate that.

            All in all, they did in a year a beautiful browser (maybe, I don’t know, can’t test on Linux), but with less functionality than their competitors (even Vivaldi, when it was only 1 year old)

            So, no, Opera isn’t innovating anymore. And wasn’t for a while now.

  • fauske51

    how to change wallpaper?

    • fauske51

      developers it’s a hard question?

    • Wando Schneider

      Change the wallpaper of your desktop. Simple as that.

      • fauske51

        i like my desktop wallpaper and don’t want to change it, but i want change one in opera neon

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Neon uses your wallpaper as its background image.

  • Vikruntasas

    Looks fancy, but wholly unpractical

    • LamiaLove

      Depends on your usage scenario.

  • Cryio

    Sometimes, for Opera devs it seems the sky is the limit. Chrome and Firefox are doing nothing, while only Microsoft is trying now and then with Edge (and previously IE10 in Metro mode) to innovate the browser space a bit.

  • SGlenn

    Is this browser limited to Windows 10? Trying to download and install it on Windows 7, and every link I try just installs normal Opera.

    • Sebastian Kamieniarz

      It’s not limited to Windows 10. You should be able to download Opera Neon from: http://www.opera.com/computer/neon using “Download now” button.

      • SGlenn

        I tried that one. Both the one at the top, and the one that you click you scroll down. What is the file named, because it just downloaded OperaSetup.exe

        • Sebastian Kamieniarz

          Please clear your browser’s cache and try again. Links work fine. The name of the file is OperaNeonSetup.exe.

          • SGlenn

            Actually, tried it on both Computers, one even using the Dev Version of Opera. Found the issue. When I turned off Add Blocker in both browsers, it downloaded the OperaNeonSetup file instead. No cache cleared. Must be why they didn’t include one in Neon. 😉

          • Sebastian Kamieniarz

            I’m glad that you were able to find the problem. Thanks for sharing the solution.

          • LamiaLove

            What can I say? That’s what you get for using crap like ad blockers, which mess with the contents of the webpages.

  • Angry Penguin

    Why not for Linux? Can we get it soon?

    • ultraviolet

      i was thinking this as well

    • Javier Bastardo

      I was thinking the same. But then I thought of would they manage to integrate the design of the browser into the many environments you find on Linux. the standard Opera desktop browser doesn’t looks the same on Windows 10, Ubuntu or elementary OS.

  • Zorn85

    Why must you torture us by not having your built in ad blocking feature present here? Went to The Verge, which came as a default favorite, and an ad opened up which took up the entire page for some crappy movie. Two videos began playing without my permission.

    Without ad blocking, the Internet is flat-out unusable when content creators think that kind of shit is acceptable.

  • Jacek

    Great job! How can I import favorities and history from normal Opera? I was able to import from firefox but not from Opera. Please fiz it.

  • Go to chrome://components/ and manually check for updates to get the components update checked (the version info was not shown right on first load (most listed as version 0), after check for update the version info was corrected)

    Some of the things described remind me of Opera with Presto

  • beBoss

    When we will see an update to mobile version…………

  • Dragomir Todorov

    I simply looooooove the simplicity of the browser, how fast it is and how elegant the animations are. Please just integrate more features in this instead features of Neon in main Opera. Maybe just one or two extensions keep me from using this as daily browser 🙂

  • tafugate

    i like it. integrate the ad blocker and i’d love it. (8

    • rohit

      how to integrate the add blocker to opera neon.

  • Dimitris Dafalias™

    Wow!I like it!I’d like to see in the future:Full screen option,add-ons and Greek language.Good job,though!

    • Alex Poirier

      You can fullscreen with f11 although I don’t see a real use for fullscreen web browsing. Most webistes are now so responsive that a slightly smaller window won’t affect the experience.

      • Dimitris Dafalias™

        Thank you.Already tried that.Not working.Not in my laptop,anyway.Ok,looking forward for add-ons!

  • NoName

    The only thing I like so far, is the fast tab switching.
    But that’s only because it’s slow in Opera (Damn you, forced preview transitions).

  • The design and animations are awesome, but it very unpractical to use…
    I hope to see some of this experiments into the main one browser.

    • Slawek Sochaj

      Thank you for this comment. We plan to implement best parts of Opera Neon into Opera browsers, and it’s important for us to know your feedback.

      • LamiaLove

        I think you should implement parts of Opera in Neon.
        Neon already has better search engine management.

  • Nekomajin43

    The jumpy effects are VERY ANNOYING!

    • LamiaLove

      Actually, I love those. Well, unless I try to hit the x to close it.
      In this case, you can just use middle click to close (only works for tabs).

      • Nekomajin43

        It would be better to move only the item, but leave the close button where it appears.

  • Kev

    its awesome

  • Regnas

    The real question is: Does it have a portable installation?

    And where is the offline installer?

    Thx..

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I don’t think so.

      • Regnas

        No offline installer either?
        C’mon Opera, what’s going on.????????
        Cheers…

        • Ari

          If you are installing a web browser into a PC without internet, then why installing a web browser in there on the first place?

          • Regnas

            Are you serious?
            Think about it, and you’ll get there…….. 😉

        • LamiaLove

          I don’t like that either.

          There is a pretty convoluted way of getting the offline installer from the temporary download made by the online installer.

          Or just use the link provided here: https://community.webroot.com/t5/Techie/Opera-Neon-a-new-concept-browser-for-the-desktop/m-p/282055

  • Kai Ockendorf

    I just love it!!! Looks very cool & the design is awesome 🙂 hope to see this as a main browser in a couple years…or sooner 😉

    • Slawek Sochaj

      Thank you! Great you like it, Kai!

  • A sidebar with its own video player, image gallery and download manager.

    Except for the video player the other two are on Vivaldi, and the last was in the true Presto Opera much before version 9.

    A vertical, visual tab bar on the right side of the browser window that makes it easier to distinguish between tabs.

    Pretty much like in Opera 10 or Vivaldi.

    A completely new omnibox that supports top search engines and open search.

    Like every other browser, especially Edge and Vivaldi.

    Video pop-out, which lets you play videos while you browse other web pages.

    Like your own current stable Opera and Safari.

    Snap-to-gallery lets you snapshot and crop any part of a web page and save it to the gallery for later.

    Like Edge and Vivaldi.

    Split screen mode lets you seamlessly view and interact with two pages at once.

    Like Vivaldi has for longer than a year.

    An intelligent system that automatically manages your tabs. Like gravity, frequently used tabs will float to the top, while less important tabs will sink to the bottom.

    Finally something “unique” and that is incredibly irritating as soon as you have more than 5 tabs.

    A new start page that uses your desktop wallpaper as its background.

    And now I guess this is unique, and pretty cool.

    The features are cool, but don’t lie saying they were never seen before.

    • MutedVideo

      Its about overall package. Opera Neon is very eye pleasing for me in terms of design and animations.

      • You missed my point. It does look cool. But I’m pointing about the absurd lie that those are unique features that only Opera Neon has. Lying is bad and I don’t like it, especially coming from companies, it loses my trust. They did not invent them, if they omitted the part saying they are unique I would not complain.

    • LamiaLove

      I never understood this omnibox crap. I know Chrome or Firefox came up with this crap and I was like “wait, what?! It doesn’t do anything more than my address bar in Opera. How lame can one be to rename the address bar just to make some headlines?!”

  • Nobody special

    Only missing thing are… extensions and adblock

    • Stefan Tinder

      And a bookmarks sidebar

  • Michal

    My current Opera blocked Neon download page because of “insecure content” 😉

    • Michal

      One quick thing. I know this browser is new, but I would like to choose where to install the new browser.

      One more thing: I like the design 🙂

    • Michal

      One more thing: Random websites are crashing at random times. Nothing I wouldn’t expect though (right now). And the “Send feedback” button that comes up after a crash is not responding.

  • Jonaid Pangcoga Noor

    Where is the ad blocker on this one? Yeah, I love it. But please, integrate or include extensions on Opera Neon. <3

    • Leonardo Gomes

      “While Opera Neon has lots of new features – and many of the Opera browser features you know and love – there are some key features we have not included, such as our native ad-blocker, VPN and the ability to add extensions. The reason for this is simply that Opera Neon is a concept browser, built for experimentation and play.”

      • rohit

        okay now I get it. But when will ad-blocker, VPN and the ability to add extensions come in opera neon

  • Kirby green

    I’m not testing a lot yet, but I’m so impressed of this Opera Neon.
    It maybe not the most efficient browser, but this new browser taught me to be fun and cool is important too.
    Big love to staffs of Opera.

  • goforce

    One thing I noticed is that the scroll experience in neon on certain website is much smoother than standard opera release (with battery saver off). Is there a new hardware acceleration being used? I am looking forward to seeing that this smooth scrolling will be added to standard opera in the future.

  • Simtopia23

    The fact that is a concept browser means that we won’t see improvements? Because it looks really cool (very nice to use it in tablet mode with touch) but i miss Opera Turbo.

  • Piotr

    I want this! but with extension, they are very usefull (ad blocker and mouse steering on youtube) and mouse gesture. excellent job! don’t stop!

  • Arturo Martínez

    No a Linux verion, why I am not surprised?

  • Javier Bastardo

    This is excellent Opera team, but “Here are some new features you won’t have seen in a browser before” is not completely accurate. Some of those features have been seen before, both in the old Opera (Presto engine) and in the Vivaldi browser, for example.

    Since you took a jab at the Edge people before for coming late to the party, maybe reword or change this sentence?

    Also, I had to turn off my Opera Ad-blocker in order to download the Opera Neon installer.

    Thank you for always improving and experimenting!

  • Leo

    I tried it and …. It’s awesome dude !!!!!
    But… I can’t find the way to sign in my Opera account to sync?
    I saw the button “sign in to Opera Neon” , nothing happened after clicked.

  • Kirby green

    The video pop up doesn’t work when hardware acceleration turned on with the device does not have gpu.

  • My only problem is that the title and url of the pages are to big, smaller sized fonts would be enough 🙂

    I know I am stupid, but how do you enable “Split screen mode”?
    Thanks.

    PS. I am really impressed with the speed!

  • Ryoko

    its possible to add VPN’s like it’s in current opera No 42?

    Where are options of Opera neon ?

    I try it now , but seems that will be my default browser. Just need VPN and blocking pop’up.

  • Kev87

    When I saw the title, my first thought was that you were finally making a new Opera 12 browser, but sadly that is not the case. I soon realised that it was something totally different and I looked forward to check it out. This is what I think after the first try:
    Visually, it’s really a nice new browser.
    In terms of features and usability it is totally not. There is no bookmarks manager, no mouse gestures, no extensions, no sync…
    I don’t know if this product is really serious or how it’s going to be worked on in the future, but it’s again like the launch of Opera 15, a good looking browser, but one that misses so much basics.
    I fully understand that this is your first release of this brand new product, but still…
    And like others said, the ‘unique’ features are also in other browsers like Vivaldi.
    I expected a lot more after reading the blogpost, but it didn’t match my expectations at all to be honest.

  • Very very cool. It definitely needs more features but I love the design and the overall feel.

    I think I could use it if it had extensions, gestures and sync.

    EDIT: Also, this is nothing like Yandex browser. It’s all about the experience and Neon definitely gives a very unique and modern browsing experience.

  • Iván Mestre

    I’m using it on a 15 inch Full HD laptop and all the elements in the web pages look very small. Apart from this, the browser works very well

  • Stefan Tinder

    The tab control sidebar is great, but many features are lacking, but overall impression is nice. It would be nice if Opera was incorporated into this, not the other way, but I guess any of the 2 are good. Also, you should change the icon it’s ridicilously ugly.

  • Raszlo

    Finally icon that matches my wall. 🙂

  • Stefan Tinder

    Ha, it says that my browser is Chrome! 😀
    https://www.whatismybrowser.com/ Check it out

    • Jan Standal

      It’s just the website not knowing it, hence wrongfully identifying it. The UA string contains a unique id “MMS”, but it’s different than Opera’s “opr”.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I don’t think many sites are able to recognize Neon currently.

  • Stefan Tinder

    One more thing: You should make download animation more visible in the left sidebar, because the arrow is too small to be seen moving. Maybe make a flashing white dot on that spot…

  • Uzma Zareen

    does it supports windows vista ?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Most probably not as Chromium doesn’t support it.

  • GregRac

    Congrats with your new browser. Your brand new fan over here. Few questions
    1. Is there any way I can name my bookmarks[snippets]? It would be nice if I was able to organize them somehow.
    2. I really like this suggestion idea: http://i.imgur.com/k0MFM05.png
    It shows the websites I’ve visited and suggests the ones from my bookmarks. Is there any way you could go deeper with that and scan the websites that are already in bookmarks for specific keywords?
    Let’s say i have gocomputerrepairs.com in my bookmarks and it contains keywords like “virus removal” in its content. How about implementing this so that each time I type in my search field “virus” it will suggest me gocomputerrepairs.com in the first place of my favorites.

  • I have been using opera for longer than I can recall, maybe right from the start and I like this new approach they have gone for, I have only just downloaded it so not had long to root through it but from the outset it pleases me big time.

  • wLEKIN

    i cannot sign in to my opera with neon ( mac )

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Sign in on…?

      If you are talking about Sync, I don’t think this feature is available.

  • Bob

    It looks cool, the only annoying thing I notice now is the cropping cross is the same color as the dim background so you can’t see where is the cross.

  • Herr Pietrus

    to splashy
    and too strange
    too much style and lack of ergonomy
    too much fun. it seems to be focused mainly on touch-screens too…

    but split screen is really interesting

    still i’d like to see it rather in a form of web-panel similar to those in the old Opera or new Vivaldi. Current mobile pages are perfect to use them in this way (dictionaries, encyclopedias, web communicators…. )

    • LamiaLove

      Actually, Vivaldi has two types of split-screen.
      1. Web panel and main view area
      2. The main view area itself can also tile more tabs either side by side (horizontally or vertically) or in a grid.

  • Himanshu Ramani

    #OperaNeon is just awesome!! #fast #responsive #OneofaKindUI #lessRam … Except for minor things like no support for extentions everything is excellent. #NeverSeenSuchABrowser. Really a #ConceptBrowser. Thanks Opera!!

    Here are some of my suggestions:
    1. Add support of extensions.
    2. Add new tab/window/bubbles must be below the opened tabs on right not on left as it takes a little lot to move cursor to left.
    3. Title of tab can be merged (if possible) with title of the browser to avoid space wastage.
    4. Smaller size(circle) of opened tabs
    5. Screen resolution/DPI issue on 1080p 15.6″ laptop had to zoom in by 125% for all websites can be solved.

    • Ari

      Dude you are too addicted to twitter.

  • Zorak

    I quite like the concept, but there is few things, that must be improved in my opinion:
    A) BOOKMARKS – I have tens, maybe hundereds of bookmarks. I just cannot imagine to work with all my bookmarks with the bubbles, like now … they cannot be merged, they cannot be moved, newly created bokmark just appears “somewhere” in the bubble block ….

    B) Extension support

    C) Bookmark button to the tab. Now I have to minimize tab to move the bubble.

    D) If I can create image snap, add link, when it will open in file explorer. Now it is like image and … what next? no context menu …

    E) make tab bubbles available for size settings. Imho too much wasted space. The usability on fullHD 15” displays is not 100% F) Browser ignores windows zoom level. Everything too small

    F) make windows title bar disappear. It has no function, just another wasted space. What more, double title bar with windows empty title bar and the tab title bar does not looks well

  • Need a mute option for tabs or some way to disable autoplay. CNN.com is a huge bother with its autoplaying advertisements.I need to import my bookmarks too!

    • Jim Francis

      you can press the audio bubble on the tab bubble to mute

      • Does not show up on CNN.com

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Probably because the videos there use Flash.

  • Man this is utter beautiful!!! Very responsive and functional. It is complete like every popular browsers I’ve been using the only difference is that it is very fresh, inviting, looks not generic but new and premium and very soothing to eye. It’s my new browser 🙂 let others to take rest for sometime 😀
    kudos to developers and designers at Opera!!! Keep improving it guys!!

  • Nekomajin43

    After an hour of playing around, I must say, it is awesome. I like the overall concept. It would definitely need a lot fo fine tunning, but it has a feel.

    But, about the features/tools:

    – I don’t like the desktop wallpaper idea. I like to use a distinct wp in the browser.

    – The site specific settings is a must! I hope you will implement this in the browser, so I can drop my sidebar addon. (Not strictly related, but please merge the Turbo switch with the VPN switch somehow. Maybe with a small infographics in the popup to explain the differences, and the ability to turn on one of them at the same time.)

    – The video panel in the sidebar is handy. This kind of “media center” should be implemented as a native sidebar panel in the browser. Maybe a few additional options to save the media file, or search similar by meta data. (I mean just right click and search author, title, album or whatever is available.) I think it would be another killer feature.

    – The screen capture tool is a very good idea. I’d like to see this in the browser. But it would be better to save the image with a second click, so we would be able to refine the selected area before save. And it would also be good to set a custom directory for the saved images.

    – The tab notification is also handy. There are extensions and libraries for this feature, but a native implementation would be better.

    I hope most of the code will be easy to port so we can use these features soon.

    Oh, and don’t forget the confirm exit option!!!

  • A great casual browser, I like it a lot. Fit a bookmark tree into the side bar plus an adblock facility and it would be perfect.

  • Christer Ohlsson

    The same mistake again, no Bookmarks it´s not usable

    • Fábio Santos

      It’s just a concept, bro.

      • Christer Ohlsson

        Bookmarks is a fundamental part of a browser and should have been there from the beginning

        • Ari

          Why because you say so? Again it’s a concept

    • Leonardo Gomes

      A browser without bookmarks would be a great concept in my opinion. The bookmarks system is kinda outdated, we need something new, more modern to redeem information from past visited pages.

      • Nekomajin43

        In a concept browser like this, the lack of bookmarks is OK. But in a normal browser, bookmarks is a must. The grid view is a good invention in bookmarks, but the ability to save addresses for later use is very important.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, I understand that (some) people may have a need to keep page addresses for future use but, for me, the fact that we need to decide if a page should be or not be kept, save/bookmark it, categorize/sort it to find it more easily and so on to maybe open that page again in the future is kinda outdated.

          We should be able to find out any previous visited page by just typing a couple of words in the address bar and without needing to do nothing before that.

          • Nekomajin43

            I see your point, but for me, the problem is usually the “typing a couple of words” part. I tend to forget what I visited before. With a well-organized folder structure, it is easier for me to find those sites again.

            I think the bookmark system has multiple usecases. For me, it is rather a temporary container , than a long term one. When I read something interesting that I can use in school, I just save it. And when I have time to use it in a presentation, I can find it again quickly.
            I also have reading/listening/watching list folders. With your way, I would definitely not be able to find those content again.

            The bookmark system may not be perfect, but I don’t know anything better at this time.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Maybe both systems can live together, like in Opera Presto.

          • Nekomajin43

            I am not against evolution and experiments, but I like to have fallback options, at least for basic usage.

      • LamiaLove

        You have speed dials in Opera. I almost never use bookmarks. I use speed dials.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Speed Dials, like the name says, is a tool to access most used sites, the one ones that you visit almost on a daily basis.

          • LamiaLove

            That’s what speed dials used to be in the past. But now you have folders in the speed dial list. You can save whatever you want in specific folders.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            For me, folders in Speed Dial are there to help the user organizing different types of sites. So you can have a folder with your news page, other with social networks, another one with forums and so on.

            I see SD as a way to quick access main sites and not a place to store a page that a saw on a site.

          • LamiaLove

            Why not? Just have a folder called “Bookmarks”.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Because, for me, it doesn’t make sense. 🙂 Besides that, I would never know that I need to bookmark a page while seeing it unless if I was already looking for something.

          • LamiaLove

            I don’t understand. Especially the second phrase. You don’t know you need to bookmark a page while seeing it? What does that mean? When DO you know you need to bookmark a page?

            But I don’t understand what doesn’t make sense either. Bookmarks are some links to some websites placed in some folders. How is that different from speed dials, which are also some links to some websites placed in some folders?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I never know when I need to bookmark a page, unless I’ve reached that page because I was searching for something and may need to return to it in the future.

            That’s why bookmarks like they are currently simply don’t work for me. Also, the fact that you need to decide if the page should be bookmarked or not, categorize and sort it is kinda outdated for me.

            As I said, Speed Dials for me are shortcuts to (usually main) pages that I visit on almost a daily basis. So, for me, it doesn’t make sense to store something there if I have no intention to visit that page at least some days per week.

          • LamiaLove

            I’m totally confused.
            1. You go to a page – OK
            2. You decide you want it – OK
            3. Bookmark or put into speed dial folder (which is exactly the same thing, with different names) – NOT OK?!
            If NOT OK, how should it work to be OK?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            In this case, bookmark the page would be OK.

            I just think that we shouldn’t need to do 2 and 3.

          • LamiaLove

            Well, how would you propose it to work instead?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Something like in Opera Presto :you could find a page just by typing a few words in address bar.

            A browser should remember pages content, maybe not everything but some Metadata so you would always be able to find the page.

          • LamiaLove

            So, you would like to store offline all pages you visit in a cache? I suppose you would like some storage limit for it, since the Internet is pretty big.
            That is not a bad idea at all. I like it a lot. I can think of times I already needed this and lost a lot of time and energy re-searching something I saw on some page because I couldn’t remember what page it was on.
            It would be like having a better browsing history feature.

            We already have caches and history so we need “just” the searching part to be added.

            Did you try suggesting this to Vivaldi? If anybody would implement this first, it would be them.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Not necessarily the entire page but some information to allow the person to easily go back to the page. Something like a index.

            It could be built from keywords, tags, metadata, etc.

            Like I said, Opera had it in its Presto times and used to be my favorite feature.

          • LamiaLove

            Holy crap! I googled a little and Opera had FULL page content search in history. I never consciously used that in old Opera. This is why I love old Opera. There were so many cool features in there.
            No decent extensions to do this in Chrome?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I find interesting that very few people ask for it. I guess it wasn’t a widely known feature.

            Nope, not that I know.

          • LamiaLove

            Actually, it might be because people didn’t even know about it. Searching just worked. It’s one of those things that if they work well you don’t know they exist.

            Later it didn’t work that well, but it’s not like most people would think “you know what? I think my history searches don’t go through the full text content of the page anymore and that’s why I have a harder time finding what I need in my browser’s history”.

          • LamiaLove

            OK, I did some more searching and it looks like Chrome used to have full text history searching but they removed it because… reasons?…

    • Natiahs

      You can drag a bubble from the bubble list to the main page to create a bookmark.

      • Christer Ohlsson

        That might be ok with a few but with a couple of hundred don’t think so

  • Jeff

    I had two tabs on the right side. After moving one of them around from bottom to top, I could no longer access that tab at all. If I clicked on that site, nothing happens. If I click on the other tab, the page cycles between the web site and the speed dial page. Windows 10, 64 bit.

    I’m not sure I like the reduced web page width. It reminds me of the MSN Explorer browser from what, late 90’s early 2000’s? There are some interesting design elements that remind me of the MSN browser as well as some things from Ubuntu’s Unity interface. I’ll be curious to see what comes of it, but I’m skeptical for now.

  • John Fritman
  • Jim Francis

    tab bubbles takes up too much space
    tab bubbles has too much margin
    tab bubbles X / close button hard to find / click
    tabs hard to manage with more than only 6 tabs open
    add tab button too far from the tabs
    maybe a trash bin below to drag the bubbles to
    window title bar useless
    address bar takes too much space

    awesome idea and concept, very interactive and fun.
    looking forward to the development of this browser.

  • HallunX

    I like it but without extensions I can’t use it… 🙁 How to install extensions?

  • Jean Hernández

    … and linux?

    • Christian Büte

      Yeah, at least an Ubuntu package would be awesome. Neon could fit the Unity interface.

  • sgrandin

    Makes more functional sense for a tablet or maybe a phone than it does for a desktop, i.e., a device where graphics make sense.

    That said, Neon misses by a large margin the way a lot of people’s minds work. Tis is a genetic matter, not one of adjusting to new styles. It’s comparable to the ribbon vs. menu debate in MS Office programs: a decade later and still a lot of people can’t work well with the ribbon, because it doesn’t jibe with the way their minds are wired (I’m one of them). Graphic/visual is better for some and not better for others (one sees this student to student as a teacher). However, the logic of development and capitalism favors the former, and Opera appears to select its developers the pool of those genetically predisposed to ride on that train – and damn the rest of humanity that aren’t. Too bad.

  • Caldren Wellman

    This is my new web browser! It works great with the touchscreen functionality of my laptop. bubble tabs on the right are perfect size and location for my thumb…almost like you planned it that way! The left tab is a little tougher to touch but I don’t use my touch screen all the time and that’s what a mouse is for! Haven’t run into any website compatibility issues yet. Favorite “thing” is the player!

  • Jordan

    I am liking it so far. Love the feel. I am having issues with the PIP draining my CPU(on a 2013 macbook pro) and Facebook videos wont play. I would love to see extensions, but this is an amazing start. Its different and I like that.

  • I’d love to test it but without at least the adblocker feature it’s unusable (on some sites the ads are just too annoying). I hope that you plan to add an adblocker to Opera Neon in the future.

  • Hansemann

    Too bad its missing adblock…or I would have tried it :/

  • uli_ixi

    I like the fresh look, most of the features are intuitive and fun to use, but how do I get to split screen mode?
    Also, as I have varying wallpapers (slide show) on my desktop, one of the images used as the background was upside down, could fix it, had to wait until the next background wallpaper came up.

    • Vux777

      drag some other tab (circle) to reading area and you will see option close to the top of the window

  • Tomek Duda

    Great idea with right-left panel. Maybe incorporate tiling webpage manager in normal Opera? 🙂 Not so great: Win7 – it split my dual-head wallpaper (browser only on bigger screen) and where are gestures?

  • Teilhard Masias

    I simply loved it! I hope Opera Neon continues as I plan to use it every day!

  • DubTheDJ

    What a gorgeous and fresh browser, this is the first browser i’ve preferred over Safari. No clutter, clean design and a new take on the very old standard. Hope development keeps up on this.
    Excellent job.

  • yigido

    It is not my type of browser on Windows 7.. I like the current Opera Beta

  • enmanuel jordan

    I love it is my new browser by default, without doubt the browser of the future, the only thing that bothers me is that the sidebar takes away a lot of reading space, for the other excellent work guys, ripping out the year in a big way. 🙂

  • iPristy

    I like it well sort of, the speed dial feels like dysfunctional, you should use hexagonal speed dial not circle style.

    • Nick

      Go to chrome://flags and disable “Enable chaos on timeline”. This will order it neatly. Only enabled it around 5 minutes ago, so I’m not sure of other impacts

      • iPristy

        It’s better but not a bunch, opened window should also have close option, too much tabs or circles not good for RAM i guess.

  • paul

    Bonjour,
    premièrement désoler de parler en français dans ce commentaire mais ma traduction risque d’être horrible pour vos yeux.
    Je vient de tester rapidement ce nouvelle explorateur internet, et je doit vous avoué que je suis surpris par la rapidité d’installation, et son ergonomie hors du commun, mais en parlant d’ergonomie, je souhaite dire que ce fondu entre cette explorateur et notre bureau est agréable mais c’est de la triche, je possède un grand écran (40″ en 4K) donc je ne met pas tout mes page en grand écran, donc mon premier reflex était de diminuer la taille de la fenêtre, et la stupeur, mon image de fond n’est qu’un simple copier coller de mon fond d’écran et non une fenêtre transparent, dommage. Je tient aussi a féliciter pour l’intégration de la correction automatique que je ne penser pas présente avant d’écrire ce commentaire. et j’ai adoré la façon intuitive de rajouter une page dans c’est favoris, vous avais penser a une utilisation tactile en programment?

    donc toute mes félicitations
    Paul

    • Sándor

      Vous pourriez améliorer votre français aussi.

  • Markus M

    RIP opera
    used to be so great.
    surprised they still keep that 2% marketshare but I guess the overseas mobile market is their jam.

  • LOVE IT! Please make it more touch friendly!!! ( Surface pro 4, Surface book, etc)

  • Gianni

    I wish this had an adblock :/

  • ken potts

    I like it! Add extensions as soon as you can. Also, can you please add Chrome to the importing tool? I really don’t use IE fer cryin’ out loud.

    Good job so far!

    I just thought of something else… How about being able to drag “bookmarked pages” onto each other to create folders? Pretty simple concept already being used. That way, my “desktop” would have a “Work” folder, “Videos” folder, “Games” folder, etc.? Please?

  • Flávio Augusto Bormann

    Just need an adblock and plugs of Opera.

  • Chris

    Absolutely love this! Had it open and within minutes starting wishing I could replace chrome with this. Once you get the extensions setup, I would gladly switch this into my workflow! It’s simple but takes care of the core experience of what web browsing needs to be. Love that it keeps the great dev tools from Chromium too. Way to make a comeback Opera!!

  • ivan310891

    Probando y me encanta, es una maravilla de navegador.

  • Falconet

    Linux soon please!!!

  • Balazs Gorove

    i love the new features i really wanna try it … only one thing missing i cant import my things from Safari … it says not supported browser found…

  • Jan Zakrzewski

    Sorry but I need to post it – Opera Beta have blocked the download of Neon as insecure 😀

    Now, I have mixed feelings about it. I actually wish that Opera had done something like this when releasing Opera 15. To be frank, I hated them for (as I then thought) destroying the most diverse interface in the world of browsers. I know that they’ve preserved what (they believed) were the most used options and features. But hell, if Opera users wanted most popular things, they would’ve switched to Chrome anyway. And I was on a verge of switching to another browser when it happened.

    But I’ve stayed with Opera. It was probably mostly because I didn’t have enough time to search for anything that would’ve satisfy my needs, but still, I think I can’t say I regret it now. Opera has caught up with what it used to be… almost. There are still some features I miss, but they aren’t that significant for me.

    Except for one. Which is having the tab bar on the side, which I have a hard time to live without. And now they’ve introduced it to the Neon. I can’t tell whether it’s ironic or genuinely mean.

    As I’ve written, I have a mixed feelings about it.

  • Umut TURUNÇ

    Please add extension support or at least add inbuild adblocker in new update.
    Except this, it looks awesome. I belive it will be more usefull with every update.

  • Rokudze

    I can write feedback here, right? First of all, browser looks amazing. Annoying frame of window on top, it should be removed somehow. Add support for extensions and import settings from Google Crome and i`m in.

  • My brief experience with Opera Neon on FHD 14.1″ screen laptop.

    Concept is great but it needs a little bit more work.

    Text seems to be blurred out (especially when page is zoomed to 67%).
    No “add new page” (+) button on the right side where the “bubbles” are.
    No extensions.
    No adblock.
    No customisation options like adjusting top bar size (it’s way too big), changing themes, allowing to change the position of “bubbles bar” or settings bar.
    I can’t import my settings from Opera browser (only from IE).
    Windows’ 10 “close, minimize, window” buttons don’t blend in (?), they look ugly.
    No touchpad scrolling sensivity settings.

    Fix these issues and this browser will be amazing.

    • “No “add new page” (+) button on the right side where the “bubbles” are. ”
      There is no need for that, there are enough ways to do that:
      – the + button on the left
      – clicking the minimize button on the address bar
      – clicking the active bubble

      No extensions.
      No adblock.
      They are irrelevant as this browser is meant to showcase the new UX (user experience) and not be a full featured browser.

  • John S.

    looks beautiful and seems like a great choice for the casual user, was gonna install it for my wife but the lack of ad blocking kept me from doing it, she doesn’t use any plugin at all but the ad blocker is essential, too much malware and phishing, please put it soon so more people will jump in!!! gratz!!

  • Jaiba Mon

    Hey, I don’t mind if you try to innovate. That’s cool. And I understand this is an early concept and that this browser will be better over time.

    But I am concerned that you guys are starting over again. Opera Presto was great, you decided to change to a Chromium based browser because that would bring Opera to the new standards and more simple-yet-useful features.

    That browser has been evolving over the years, and now are you planning to throw all that progress again?

    Just look at this? http://imgur.com/a/LumAw

    Chrome-based Opera is great! It looks like a native Windows app (and on iOS, it looks native too). People can mistake it with Edge Browser. It looks professional, elegant, and it’s customizable.

    There are many things right now that Chrome-based Opera has that Neon doesn’t:
    * Ad-blocker
    * Opera Sync
    * Extensions
    * News
    * Tabs on the top of the screen
    * Better use of space on the new tab
    * More personalization on the Speed Dial entries
    * Speed Dial folders
    * Lots of tweaks that can make Opera better for the user (like using system colors, removing the space on top of the tabs, etc)
    * A better icon 🙂

    Yet, there are many things that Chrome-based opera lacks, like the ability to sort extension’s icons, dark mode, Opera Turbo statistics, password and news sync, changing the default search engines, etc. Before today, I thought these improvements will be implemented eventually, but now, will you still working to improve this version of Opera anymore? Or you will focus on bringing all the features that this Opera has on your new Neon Opera? Will these two browsers coexist or Neon will push away the matured Opera we have today?

    I just hope you guys re-consider this decision of reinventing the wheel all over again.

      “Opera Neon is a concept browser – a vision of what browsers could become. It is not designed to replace the current Opera desktop browser. However, we do plan to incorporate some of its best new features into Opera for computers as early as spring 2017.”

  • Ozan Yasar

    I wanted to try Neon, I switched browsers in 5 years span 3 times. IE to Opera to Chrome and to Opera again. But as soon as I installed, I’m disappointed. No adblock, no extensions, no VPN and I can’t even import my bookmarks from Opera? I’m writing here because there are no feedback menu? You launch an alternative browser without any feedback options? Sorry I don’t care how easy to take a screenshot or use a music tab/bubble or something if I can’t import my bookmarks first.

    • Nekomajin43

      Have you read the post?

  • Patlex

    Love the app, but do you think you can add better touch screen support, and annotation support, like Edge has? I’d also like to see tumblr extensions to work with this app. Thank you

  • LamiaLove

    Why the hell was Opera 15 not this?!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Well, Opera Blink was first release almost four years ago. Things change a lot in four years, specially when we talk about technology.

      • LamiaLove

        I disagree.
        Stuff has not changed that much. It’s not like they didn’t have the tech or the reasons to do it then.
        Also, Opera 15 was just a slightly less disgusting version of Chrome. It had almost nothing on top of Chrome except the speed dial. Maybe they finally understood what longtime Opera users were saying about Opera 15: it was just another slightly better Chrome, nothing to remember 5 minutes later after trying it and going back to Chrome.
        That’s why Vivaldi was created. That’s why most old Opera users moved to Vivaldi instead of staying with the new Opera.

        Now, to be honest, in its current form, Neon does not even hint that it could ever be a replacement for Vivaldi or old Opera, but who knows what could have happened in 4 years?

    Please:

    Bookmarks
    Extensions
    Turbo
    Ad blocker
    VPN
    Portable
    Offline installer
    Bubbles inside of bubbles (kinda like folders)

    ASAP……. 🙂

    • John Di

      Offline installer of Opera Neon 1.0.2429.0 for Windows: https://bit.ly/2iOdNYy.
      Downloaded from the official ftp servers, when it was available.

      • Regnas

        Thanks.
        What’s the URL of the FTP?

        • John Di

          It was available under http://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub, but as far as I know, it was removed from the server after Dec. 21st, 2016. If you want, you can compare the SHA512 checksum of the file, with the checksum of the same version of the installer from another source, mentioned here: http://forums.opera.com/discussion/comment/15255421#Comment_15255421 (they are the same).

          • Regnas

            Thank you…
            Yeah, I looked the ftp server and didn’t found nothing, lol…
            Why did they removed the full installer? I doesn’t make sense.

            By the way, the version from the online installer is newer (1.0.2459.0).

            Cheers..

          • John Di

            You’re welcome! I have no idea why it was removed, but good news is, that there’s the latest (1.0.2459.0) offline installer on the official ftp, but it’s hidden, here is the link: https://ftp.opera.com/.private/Opera_Moment_Developer_1.0.2459.0_Autoupdate.exe.

          • Regnas

            Nice find mate… 😉
            Cheers…

          • Leonardo Gomes

            That was a different version/build that shouldn’t be there and therefore was removed.

            I guess they don’t want people downloading Neon from the ftp without knowing what it is and what is the purpose of it.

            Even some people that supposedly read this blog post seems to not have got it right.

        • LamiaLove

            Thx…. 🙂

      “Opera Neon is a concept browser – a vision of what browsers could become. It is not designed to replace the current Opera desktop browser.”

      • Regnas

        Doesn’t need to replace anything… Those are core features any web browser should have, concept or not…. People can’t fully test a browser without those stuff……

        • Nekomajin43

          I can.

          The point of the concept is to show new things, not the existing ones.

          • Yeah, but we can point out what is missing or what should the devs change to make this browser “a thing” in the future. I love the concept and I hope it will become a fully working browser as soon as possible :3

    • Dimitris Dafalias™

      Agreed!

    • Lyndon_Huang

      One more thing!
      Fonts ; )

  • João Paulo

    As soon as you add an ad blocker this will be my default browser… until then I have to stick to Chrome.

  • ULISES GUTIERREZ

    I’vetesting a few Hours today, I thisn it’s a great and fresh idea, Ilike the concept.
    But I get some coments:
    1 the link to websites should be more customizable. for example, I’ve using opera for about two years, the links could be moved to first line and moved as desired. I whish to move as columns depending of type of website, shoppings, mails, blogs, etc. use more space of the screen, by now it’s a bis waste of space on the start page.

    Keep the good Work! Thanks

  • Will patiently wait for the Linux version 😛

  • Nelly

    OK, cant find bookmarks from previous browser.
    Fricking adds everywhere and no way to block them.
    Not finding this intuitive.

  • Anonymous

    What is a good way to provide feedback to this team?

    I think this browser is awesome. It could potentially be a default level browser but has lots of room for improvement (so not quite yet).

    Some feedback from first use (for a few mins):
    – add functionality for different “spaces” acting as bookmark folders. This or “bubble folders”
    – custom location for bubbles in spaces rather than grid-like auto-positioning (gives feelings of more fluidity to user)
    – make the “close” button over bubble show up when the cursor has been over it for more than a second. Otherwise you have to click and drag the bubble for it to show the X mark that allows the user to close it.

    More to come if you are interested (a lot more)…

  • Albert

    Youtube don´t work in Win 7?

  • Sameer Huda

    I feel like this has a lot of potential but it still needs to be refined.
    Maybe custom logo for the bookmarks or just the website logo instead of screenshot
    adblock
    proxies
    custom location for the bubbles
    an exit button next to the minimize one

  • Leonardo Gomes

    I like Neon’s design. The use of desktop wallpaper as browser’s background image gives it a cool transparency like look.

    Vertical tab bar is nice but the tab bubbles could be a little bit bigger.

    The media player is a great feature. Being able to access previous played audio and video in a single place is something very interesting, specially when visiting a page with lots of media.

  • Blake

    The only thing I have to recommend is adding some of the features from regular Opera to this. Stuff like VPN and currency converter. Maybe even try VR?
    Just downloaded and it looks very promising

  • plentifullee

    Video not working….

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Videos play fine here on Win10. Or most of them at least.

      What is your OS? And do you have example links of videos that don’t work.

      • plentifullee

        I’m on Mac OS Sierra, version 10.12.2

        All youtube and videos on facebook doesn’t work. (youtube just doesn’t play, facebook says flash no installed).

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Do they play on regular Opera?

        • for facebook install adobe flash for chromium. this fixed it for me. youtube haven’t tried yet

  • Yash Mody

    Looks really cool. Will wait for the linux version!

  • Patlex

    Needs a share button, or allow us to use the windows share function.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Windows has a share function?

      • Joe438

        I have Windows 7. I just Googled it and apparently the share function is in Windows 10.

        • Przemek Kudła

          There is the share function in Win10. Unfortunately, available to Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps only (https://msdn.microsoft.com/pl-pl/windows/uwp/app-to-app/share-data ), which neither Opera nor Neon are.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            It would be nice to have a share function in Opera.

          • LamiaLove

            Win32 apps can be updated to use certain UWP features (don’t know if Share is one of them).

          • Patlex

            Then maybe have an in app share fuction where you can share to your social media feeds, like facebook, tumblr, and twitter?

  • Orhan Savaş

    how to import settings, passwords, links, bookmars etc. of old opera to opera neon?

  • kik1n

    It is awesome. But it has some lacks or features that are not present. I know that it is a beta.
    1) PLUGINS.
    2) SPEED DIAL / Bookmarks manager. (Group bookmarks in folders). <———
    3) Complete screen.
    4) The tabs are awesome, but … Too big.
    5) The left panel should be concealable.

    • Nekomajin43

      It is not beta. It’s a concept.

      • kik1n

        I hope not. I love it, whereas I would like to be the new opera.
        Is super light and pretty.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          It’s not a matter of hope. 🙂

    • LamiaLove

      Press F11 to switch to fullscreen mode.

  • Please, add extensions…. i get advertising everywhere

  • AF8

    NPAPI Support is currently disabled. Can this feature be enabled/added? This browser is amazing, absolutely refreshing to see a new browser that doesn’t just copy the previous

    • Leonardo Gomes

      NPAPI plug-ins are in process of extinction. Chromium based browsers like Opera and Chrome already dropped support for those plug-ins a while ago and Firefox is also dropping npapi support, if not have dropped already.

  • Arjun Kalidas

    Awesome browser so far!!! But I am unable to sign in to the browser. Or set shortcuts. How do you do that here?

    • LamiaLove

      At the moment you cannot.

  • GEmi XD

    it’s based on Chrome but how to add plugins like addBlock ?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It’s based on Chromium, like the ‘regular’ Opera.

  • lordof weed

    where is ADBLOCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

    • Nekomajin43

      Where is reading comprehension?

  • ga_pechorin

    i wish all webs were as pretty as shown in the video, and not the crap with banners and hundreds of stupid links in between i usually visit.

  • lordof weed

    why is this white bar on top wasting 10 px space (on mac black bar)
    remooove
    put close maximize and minimize 10 px lower.

  • Derek

    Please add the ability to connect to the Opera VPN. That would be so awesome.

  • lordof weed

    put the tabs to the left side where the tools are. saves so much screen space. also with dual monitoring, most people have their main monitor on the left side and then you can use the edge of the screen to reach tabs faster.

  • red5goahead

    My opinion , if you don’t add some key features as extension and embedded ad blocker, from Opera, no one will use it so the concept can’t be understood

  • The tab switching interface reminds me of PS Vita.

  • Tibor

    It’s amazing. I like it all the way. Pretty nice look. Great speed. All ideas that you put in here can be right know add to your main browser. Of course there is some missing futures, but HEY it’s called concept so? Just great work. I’m using Opera since beginning and this is right step to the future. Already I swap my default browser to this version.

  • tarkus

    Amazing and innovative UI, as always Opera arrests the eye of the user! But…it’s not ready for real use, it needs a lot of things to be functional – nevertheless congratulations to your team: you managed to launch a ‘small’ bomb!

    Update: I ‘played’ a little longer with Neon – my first impressions were correct: being in ‘A’ version, it’s far from functional and needs extensive reworking (no need to suggest anything, everybody knows what’s missing) but … it’s so amazing that left me with my jaws open! Now everything else seems dull in comparison!

  • Syver Lauritzsen

    I dunno.. it feels “safe”. If your mission is to redefine the browser of the future, why not go further? Why not ask the big questions – what is browsing, what is a web page, what CAN a web page be, do we even need web pages etc. Instead, the questions posed are small, trivial even. Questions such as “How can we organise tabs? What does the home page look like?” As far as I can tell, this is just a UI redesign with some added eye candy.

    • LamiaLove

      Why not make a suggestion? I for one am curious.

  • Kallock

    Miss VPN

  • Marko Koivuniemi

    I like “the feel” of Neon. Good job.
    (Facebook Identities Neon as Chrome 😉

    • Connor Mac Oud

      (Neon uses Chromium, most websites mistake Chromium-based browsers for Google Chrome.)

      • LamiaLove

        deleted

    • LamiaLove

      Neon identifies itself as Chrome on purpose.
      I don’t know why they decided to do that, but it does. When websites ask, it says it’s name is Chrome.

      EDIT:
      I checked again and I was wrong.
      Neon says in the user agent its name is MMS (no idea why), but the website I used to check was stupid and lied to me.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        Neon was just launched so websites don’t know how to identify it yet and only see the Chrome part of the user agent.
        The same happened to Opera Blink.

        • LamiaLove

          I edited my previous response.

  • call me jack

    Forward and backward buttons of my mouse don’t work on Neon 🙁 (work normally on other browsers)

  • Al Green

    This is the best browser so far! I’m old Mac user (Win user in the past) and since I spend a lot of time on the web I tried all browsers from the beginning of the first Opera. I don’t like your original Opera browser, but this one is amazing. So amazing, so I want to switch on it from Safari.

    Please release it for iPad as well. Thank you.

    • LamiaLove

      Why don’t you use Opera Coast on iPad?

  • Glib Skrypka

    Hi guys:)
    It is amazing what you have done. It is great UI and it is really first UI i really want to use in tablet mode of my 2 in 1. I’ve almost never use my 2 in 1 as tablet just because awful browser experience. You’ve changed it:) Good job.

  • LAMBDA471

    Sorry, I don’t like it. The UI is horrible and takes so much space.

    There is a reason why tabs are small rectangles on the top and take as little space as possible. Tabs on the side take too much space, unless they are vertical rectangles, which will make text on them hard to read.

    And I most certainly don’t like how my desktop background is transferred into the browser. I like it when it’s one solid color. Right now its like the horrible sense of taste people that are getting tattoos have and think they are unique, deep and sophisticated.

    Overall it feels like a browser for a 3 year old. Nothing innovative about the UI, it’s a step backwards.

    I’m uninstalling it until it starts to look like a web browser. Sorry, it’s just too horrible.

    • LamiaLove

      But, that’s the whole point. It is designed to NOT look like every other browser.
      You have the regular Opera browser for that.
      Neon is designed for the present and future. Touch screen anyone?

      • LAMBDA471

        It still doesn’t have a coherent UI. As I said – tabs on the right in the form of bubbles?! That’s like trying to be different for the sake of it regardless if it’s relevant or not.

        Google Chrome has a touch UI – it’s the same as it is, except that things are bigger and that’s how it should be.

        A web browser’s main focus should be the web, hence the name web browser.
        Wanna make a cool touch UI that’s different? Make the whole browser practically UI-less and put everything on top as floaters. That makes so much more sense that framing the web page and adding useless buttons wherever comes to mind.

        Here’s a basic touch UI with the focus on the webpage that comes up when you swipe from the top edge:

        I just made that shit in Paint for 5 minutes
        http://i.imgur.com/zzAdgac.jpg

        • LamiaLove

          Well, that’s how you would do it for yourself. And I can understand what you are aiming for with that GUI.
          They had to take into consideration more things, like what is their target audience.
          While I don’t like the round tabs either, it does make it look pretty much in line with the times, where round icons for contacts and whatnot are allover the place, especially on the web.
          I hate the round tabs, but I’m not the target audience of this browser.
          Maybe you are not either.

          • LAMBDA471

            It really begs the question “Who is?… Who is actually the audience?”

          • LamiaLove

            People who mostly go online for facebook. But now that I really think about it, don’t people go to facebook from their phones?
            Anyway, to make it very easy to understand, this is the target audience: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4MwTvtyrUQ
            Please watch the whole video. There are some very interesting things throughout that video.

  • Simon654

    Without a built-in or extension-based ad blocker, a modern browser is a security risk. Even on otherwise-reputable websites, ad networks spread malware and track users’ web usage and browsing. (Plus most websites, astoundingly, still allow annoying animated ads and autoplay video.) So without that core functionality, any modern browser (including Neon) is a potential security risk and should not be used. The UI is also abusive of screen space. On a 27-inch screen it might be less dramatic, but on a 15- or 13-inch screen, Neon needs to be far more respectful of the limited screen real estate it takes up (especially vertical space with its oddly wide top bar).

    • Al Green

      If you so afraid to use modern web, just turn off your network and computer. And go for a walk. But I should to tell you that in real life people will be tracked without web: mobile networks track you to improve their quality of service and sell such big data to other companies (where is your ad blocker???), traffic jam tracked by cameras (install ad blocker on it!), in any mall or a shop you will be tracked to help shop owners decide what kind of items doesn’t sells well and finally status of your credit cards logged by your bank too. Can you set ad-blocked to it? NO. But somehow you don’t care. Why you crying about the browser without it?

      Your desktop OS track you, but you even know and almost every app do the same. Even battery of your smartphone can help to track you in the network (google about it), it’s not a joke.

      Security risk haha, your whole life is a risk. Turn off your Internet man.

  • Wira Pratama

    i like it, its very good, but pleasa add some extension, wait for another update, thanks

  • Hopeson Sel

    Please add the VPN and ability to add extension. This is dope already! Thanks

  • tonks

    omg I love it.
    This is, without a doubt, the best interface I’ve seen for a browser in a widescreen display. My only complaint would be that the address bar is too large. Please please PLEASE integrate all this stuff into Opera Proper. Neon is awesome, but obviously it lacks all the settings and extensions Opera Proper has,

  • jimt29

    Set placement of the icons and how many across would be good.

  • laban

    Hi! I wonder of there is a offline download because our IT department has blocked download via installer?

  • Emilio Rinaudo

    It is cool, but the only way that will allow Opera Neon to be a real browser is extensions. Without them it’s basically just a toy.

    • LamiaLove

      Well, it is officially created to “play” with it, so, yeah, currently it’s just a toy.

  • Islam Taha

    why title bar in mac os not like the one in the video and photos here ? it’s just the default one not the black transparent one in the photos.
    Also it consumes too too much CPU !!

  • Al Green

    Everybody’s complain about this browser can be assembled as “I don’t like this browser, because it’s not as my old one. Without plugins, blockers and other stuff”. Come on people! It’s just an experiment. And the great side of it is that they finally re-thinked tab bar. In Chrome it’s a nightmare, finally opera devs decide to use vertical scroll, instead of horizontal, it’s more natural for long item lists. Even scroll wheel on your mouse is vertical. Great job, guys!

    • DMCA

      you’re so right )

    • LAMBDA471

      Rethinked tab bar?! You’re joking, right? With a tab bar like this I would much rather prefer not to have a visual tab bar and press Ctrl+1; Ctrl+2; Ctrl+3 to switch between tabs…

      • LamiaLove

        You can do that. It works.

  • David L.

    I love it. Add extension support and let users mess it up a little 😉

    • Al Green

      yeah, “add extension support, add ad blocker, add horizontal tabs, instead of verticals, add bookmarks manager with folders, remove wallpaper from background, remove left media bar and add VPN” and only then it will be fine! Oh… wait… it will be just the same as all other browsers… Why you even created this one?!?!

      yes?

      • David L.

        Not really. Just add extensions and let other people develop all the rest. Personally, I need just a few extensions: Super drag and drop, mouse gestures and an ad blocker. Other people need different things.

        The interface is great and there is no point of adding style customizations or any other extension that changes the “look and feel” of the browser. However, without an ad blocker, it’s already unusable for most non typical users (the ones who are actually trying it out).

      • Riwer

        Yes? no, you are retarded.

        How the hell an adblock extension or “center image” extension is related with a browser core features?

        Return to your cave.

  • Hi! Looks promising and maybe I will try to defeat my Chrome habits but I have two issues:

    1. Facebook Video doesn’t work (Flash Unavailable)
    2. I see “Login into Opera” on desktop but I’m click on it and nothing happens…

    Would be great if you could add closed captions or provide a transcript to the video. #accessibility

  • iG0Lka

    bad.
    No extensions, no normal bookmarks, no imports from the Opera, not portable installation, and etc…
    Only stupid bubbles that can not even organize …

      ” It is a concept browser – an experimental browser that envisions the future of web browsers similar to the way concept cars predict the future of automobiles.”

      This isn’t a finished browser, they keep developing it, so the things you listed above will be added soon for sure. Currently we only have an alpha or beta version, so we need more time to see if its good or bad.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        In fact, some of Neon’s concepts may de added to Opera but it’s unlikely that any of Opera’s features will be added to Neon.

        • Феликс

          Yeah, I understand that, and honestly I hope they will add some of the stuff of neon to Opera.

  • danieljcox

    I love the speed. If I could get my Safari bookmarks imported it would be my go to browser of choice.

  • Crafted Crows

    I think this will work good on Windows 10 with touchscreens 🙂

  • Ian Gabriel Canlas Sanchez

    I love it but i guess it would be better if we could use the app in full screen (without the title bar and taskbar)

    • LamiaLove

      Pressing F11 should switch to full screen mode.

      • Ian Gabriel Canlas Sanchez

        but it only maximizes the current ‘tab’. it removes the circles from the view

        • Leonardo Gomes

          This is full screen. 🙂

        • LamiaLove

          You can use Ctrl+Tab to switch between tabs while in fullscreen mode.

  • alexandrep56

    I really loved the experience ! 😉
    Something good is about to come :p

    But the experience has to be improved ! 😉
    Like extensions and bookmarks support 🙂
    Sync and it would be great if bubbles could be size adjustable 🙂

    But really, thanks to Opera for that really interesting new eperience !

    Thumbs up 🙂

    – personalize bubbles icon (or explain me how to make the small “site icon bubble” replace the web page snapshot that fill the big bubble).
    – extensions

  • Pablo Rodriguez Facal

    Nice work!
    Although I would appreciate a 64b version with a lower CPU and lower memory consumption, I really like it.
    Climbing very fast to be my default browser!

  • Lyndon_Huang

    Such beauty!
    What if change the font of Opera Neon’s Menu, Right Click Menu or other place?
    Microsoft YaHei ( msyh.ttf ) is good idea, I believe.
    It can make Opera Neon much consistent on Windows 10!

        It’s a damn good idea !! Thanks (sorry , Google is polite!) I say , it’s a fucking good idea ! Thanks QuaRem

  • Tim Stiffler-Dean

    My only complaint is that the chrome of the browser takes up too much screen real estate. I like the design and the feel of it all, especially in full screen mode, but the interface on the right and left sides takes away from the content I’m currently browsing. Perhaps an option to collapse into sections the appear on hover or click would be nice?

    • LamiaLove

      Really? What websites do you browse that you need so much horizontal space?
      Or maybe you have a very tiny display?
      Placing the GUI on the sides totally makes sense for wide screens, which is how most displays are now.

    Impressive, I have been switching to the other side (if you know what I mean :p), but I am impressed by Neon video demo and even got more impressed after using it (writing this on Neon). It’s quite obvious Neon is artistically-focused, however I am pleasantly surprised to find it quite usable. I guess you guys still have the knack to innovate. I imagine this UX approach will draw a parallel to tabs implementation in the past and now.

  • jayman1576

    So clean and simple. I love it! Just wish it had bookmarks & sync across devices…then it would be my default browser for sure!

  • Henry Floyd

    Beautiful browser! One issue though – on Mac, going into fullscreen mode just makes the current website fullscreen with no way to get to your other tabs, URL bar, or any other features without leaving fullscreen. Please change fullscreen mode so that it brings the entire interface fullscreen instead of just the content window. Thanks!

    • LamiaLove

      In the meantime you can use Ctrl+Tab to switch tabs.

      it’s my new default browser

  • Cadu Schmidt

    Great design, truly fun and innovative, liked it very much. Hope you’re adding extensions support, bookmarks, ad-blocker, and all the features from the regular Opera browser as soon as possible.

  • Феликс

    Honestly, I’m impressed!
    I love the “normal” Opera browser, but this one is just….so much better, I like this design!

    Is there an offline installer that I can grab from opera FTP? Web installer just hangs (I think I have a content blocker getting in the way)

    Overall, I really like it. I could use this, if it had a proper set of sync options. (Sync is the reason I don’t use regular opera either, it’s simply too basic, and still years behind Chrome and FF).

  • Israel Nunes

    Guys, I’ve loved Neon and I can’t wait for new updates. But I’ve missed bookmarks. Are you guys going to add it and sync features?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I wouldn’t expect any updates, at least in a near future.

      And being Neon a concept browser, no current features will be added to it. An update, if happens, will be to show new concepts.

  • Brian

    Will you add the free VPN feature?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      The post kinda answer that question.

  • Junaid Ahmed

    Opera just started it. I’m sure more features will be added soon..

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Well, it’s a concept browser so it’s unlikely that it will get features or even updates.

      it’s a new browser, take it easy. I am sure that with time it will have support for that. than, automatic translator… why don’t you just do something with yourself, something useful, and learn some languages to improve your culture? I am 20 years old, I know my mother tongue, english, spanish, catalan, portuguese from brazil and french, and I am willing to learn even more just to be able to keep up with globalism. languages is a thing that is always useful, whenever you are.

    • Raszlo

      Right bro, my Win 95 is also eager for Opera Presto!

      • ank

        typical hipster argument. The old Opera was fast, you didn’t need 20 core cpu and 100 gb of ram to display a fucking web page. And the interface was functional, you didn’t need to click 10 fucking circles to reach some basic menu option. But you being a millenial impressed by shiny circles and rainbow colors can’t grasp that. 5 years ago Opera had 6% market share of the intelligent part of the internet, now it has 6% market hare of hipsters and idiotic part :/

        • Raszlo

          Neon is just an experiment, a possible way of browser evolution. I think you missed a point focusing on circles.

          I use Opera for far more then 5 years and remember old Opera very well. I don’t give a sh!t about circles or fancy UI. What you forgot is that web browsing and internet in general is different then few years ago. Sites are now almost like apps and this is the future of web – deal with it. I want to use browser that can cope with newest technologies and provide me smooth experience. Old Opera wasn’t even close to this. If you remember that differently, you’re wrong.

          Sincerely, Hipster

        • LamiaLove

          I’m a long-time user of Opera. The real Opera; the old Opera. I had to give it up when it wouldn’t work anymore on some websites, long after new Opera had been released..
          The old Opera was designed for a quite different web than what we have today.
          What followed was about 6 months of pure agony, during which I would use new Opera, Firefox, Sleipnir and other browsers to try and find a decent replacement. No luck.
          After that, Vivaldi appeared as a technical preview and my hopes were back up.
          After another year of development during which I had already switched to Vivaldi snapshots as my main browser, Vivaldi got all the features and bug fixes that I REALLY needed from old Opera, so I switched to the stable version of Vivaldi.
          Life is good again.

          And now Opera comes up with a cool concept which looks very cool and has some interesting features. It even has better search engines management than new Opera. Not bad.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Well, I guess someone could say that yours is a typical argument from (old?) people who can’t deal with nothing new and/or different and always keep saying that things were in the past.

          Being myself a regular Opera user since version 3.5x – back in the time when Opera used to fit in na floppy disk – and also someone who have been following the browser development since then. I can say that Opera Presto was really fast, probably the fastest one. Back in the 1990’s – maybe beginning of the 2000’s too? – when the web was still something more static.

          When the web started to become more dynamic, Presto began to show some weakness and being overtaken by other browsers.

          The web has changed since its beginning about 20 years ago, with pages going from simple text in a single html file to something dynamically generated, with lots of (multi)media on it. This led browsers to also change.

          Regarding Neon’s menu, I don’t see any big issues on it. It’s simple and I like it.

  • ozzy

    Neon is really slick! One thing that would be a nice touch, would be to have popped-out videos continue to play after you navigate to another page. There just seems to be a disconnect with having the video in its own window, that suddenly disappears as you continue to browse.

  • Patryk Lange

    Really cool i live it

  • Love it! Just add pro features from normal Opera and make Linux version, and I will make sure that my every friend and family member use it 😀

    • Herr Pietrus

      I’d rather say – include snapping, player panel, web panel and zoom pop-up in the normal Opera and forgo about the green one.
      some functions are fresh and nice, but the whole concept is too toyish

  • Dries Schoepen

    It doesn’t use my wallpaper as a background after downloading. Do I have to change something in settings?

    • LamiaLove

      No, it should work, but maybe there’s some bug.
      For me it wouldn’t restore the previous session when closing and reopening the browser, although it is the default setting. I had to change the setting and then go back to the default to make it work.
      Maybe you have a similar issue. Try closing and reopening Neon!

      • Dries Schoepen

        I have closed and reopened it, even reinstalled it. Still the same problem… Kinda a bummer. Not as a clean look as it can be…

  • tarkus

    Some, aesthetic, suggestions for consistency purposes:
    1. Blend the top ‘window’ bar (with the O badge and the windows buttons) into the theme – no ‘different’ top bar, it ruins the concept!
    2. Add (from the beginning) touch screen capabilities! It really comes natural to this project!

  • Herr Pietrus

    Ok, I’ve played with it a bit more
    And as I said, it looks nice, but… it’s not ergonomic.

    – As other people said, it should have separate wallpaper.
    – Bubbles on the right side are toot big, you cannot open as many cards as usual without scrolling them.
    – Plus button should be on the right side
    – Address bar is huge and looks ugly
    – Tabs closing is difficult because “x” icons are tiny
    – SD is eye-catching but… not much more
    – Hamburger menu with hidden history on PC? Don’t try to be second M$,, one stupid company with no idea about the UI is enough.
    – internal pages design is terrible…

    The good things in these browser are:
    + zoom indicator in the pop-up!
    + player panel (although i don’t find it very useful i think it could be implemented in the Opera)
    + …perhaps snapping is also good
    + displaying two websites in the same window – but I hope that Opera will rather add their own version of web panels from Vivaldi and… Opera 12.
    + vertical tab bar for those who need them. perhaps it could be implemented as an optional solution in the standard Opera too (on the SD page?)

    The browser like neon is definitely not for PC and not for daily, serious use. For example now i’m looking for the simple phone for my mum and how could I easily manage 20 opened tabs in Neon?
    It can be another toy similar to Opera’s Coast. And GREAT for tablets, refrigerators and ovens 🙂 But how many Opera’s we need? Opera, Opera Mobile, Opera Mini, Opera Coast… and now Opera Tablet/Surface version? 🙂

    • tarkus

      I cannot disagree with you more! I want one Opera and I want it like Neon. The capabilities are endless, the whole project is pioneering. Some of your observations are accurate, but the purpose must be to solve the issues and certainly not to abandon the project! I do not believe in a different wallpaper, instead I want to see the whole thing blending even more with Windows start screen, even to the point of being inherent to the Windows interface! Ever since I tried Neon, the – actually great – familiar Opera UI seems to me plain and dull!

      • Herr Pietrus

        Fortunately this is only an experiment without the real future 😛
        Some ideas are really interesting (new functions and tab bar for tablets and touch screens) but it can;t work as a real, seriuos PC browser.

        Still I really appreciate the fact that they want to play and to be creative. (Un)Fortunately, very original and stylish things (like modern interface… ok, modern was rather “stylish”, although it has some potential to be better) are not very useful.

  • reset77

    You launch the browser of the future just to say it was just a small project with NO FUTURE DEVELOPMENT?

    “Right now Neon is a fun project that our developers were working on & we’re not planning to develop it further.”

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Where they said that?

      Anyway, Neon is a concept browser. It’s a browser to show ideas and concepts that may be added to Opera in the future.

      • LamiaLove
        • Leonardo Gomes

          thanks.

      • reset77

        They said on Twitter… its a very good concept, the best is the blend with the OS, lets hope they implement some features because Opera really needs a refresh from the same old interface every browser use

    • Emanuele Serini

      That sucks.

  • LamiaLove

    I don’t understand why there are no mouse gestures in Neon.
    It looks like a pretty mouse-centric UI. Why not include mouse gestures?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Because it’s a concept browser made to show some concepts and not to be used as daily browser?

      • LamiaLove

        True, but you know, maybe the concept should integrate mouse to its fullest. Just a thought.
        Also, some touch browsers, like Sleipnir for Android have touch gestures. Best invention since the wheel.

  • Robert

    Implement of Neon in Opera
    1) smooth
    2) speed
    3) animation
    4) multi-window
    5) design
    In general, neon liked, I hope a couple will receive updates to the settings, and more support for extensions.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I guess it’s unlikely to happen. Possible future updates will probably bring new concepts and/or changes for the current ones.

  • Tarquinn St

    one problem I have with the mac version is when you enter fullscreen mode when go to a tab it goes to full screen and the useful ui is gone. This reasonable many other browsers do this but this advertised as future browser. A solution would be a option for that to be changed. other things opera apps and wallpaper changes would be nice. This is prototype so this fine but in future it would be nice have working features all the time.

    • LamiaLove

      Use Ctrl+Tab to switch tabs.

    • Teddy Raoul

      There are so many other browsers, why taking time to complain about this concept if it’s not for you. I have been using Firefox and chrome for years and I can tell you that I do not need bookmarks when I have bubbles, and as it is. I JUST LOVE IT!!!!!

      • epigastrium

        BUT:
        “concept” is without any concept – so sorry (howling – bohoooo…).
        It’s – maybe – a helpless confusion. but nothing more. A real browser, even a new fashioned one, would have had any real content. Appearance is unequal content!
        Opera neon, there’s nothing in it!!!

        • Teddy Raoul

          Hmm..I hear you but even though you make some sense, this is what I like about it. The return of some simplicity, like having a tool with on purpose only to navigate rapidly. Maybe they will add more extensions or feature, but I would want this brother to remain minimal and if there are tasks you need to perform, switch to opera or what ever. I have been using it for almost a week now, and the only extension I wish I could integrate in it is Adblock.

    • Orrin

      i thought the icons were the bookmarks

  • Jess McKenzie

    I like it.Too many complaints. It is a lot of fun to play with.

  • santulinks

    Beautiful browser, looks stunning. Great idea to use side bars rather than top and bottom of the screen. Even better, if top header bar would disappear and give even more height. On websites I usually don’t need width, only height on a desktop.
    Installed on WIndows 10, 64bit – installer crashed when closing after finishing installation but installation was complete. Icons on left side bar were not visible until I moved mouse to left and dragged it in, looking for a way to add tabs.
    I can see too many tabs on right side could become a problem, but may be size of bubbles could simply shrink. Mouse over on bubbles should show website titles.
    + Icon for tabs is too hard to click, you have to hit the actual lines of the plus rather than just the area.

  • Kleber Bezerra

    Hello, it`s a nice concept browser and will be wonderful it increase the new experience for a main stable version. I have some suggestion about Opera Neon:
    1- The bubble on main screen would create groups of bubble like a folder on bookmarks
    2- Allow shortcut key to go main bubble
    3- Create a possibility to open a standard tab on a window bubble when you open a link in a website.
    4- Slide the bubble to right side on the screen to close, because click in small ‘x’ is horrible.
    5- Improve a easy way to amazing possibility for use two page in the same page.

    Cya n ty ” sorry by my english, i’m not fluent, Brazil like opera browser.

  • kik1n

    Eh~~~.
    I discovered a big mistake. Neon consumes a lot of RAM and CPU after having closed 10 tabs on youtube. Of course I waited a while.
    It’s heavier than google chrome.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      What OS? It seems OK here on Windows 10.

      • kik1n

        Windows10 64.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Same OS here and I see no problems with ram. CPU usage is kinda high but probably related to the lack of hardware acceleration support .

          Anyway, nothing that disrupts the use of the browser.

  • Christopher R

    Opera Neon is Phenomenal. Opera has created a everyday browser successfully. want to make Neon my regular browser for everyday browsing. There are a few things missing;

    – Extensions

    – Allow the user to open a address bar to enter in a URL, rather the having to use Google to search for what you want (although this is a great concept).

    – The legacy of tabs as seen in all browsers should be an option at the top of Opera, rather then circle tabs to the left of Opera Neon.

    – Create an option not to capture my background desktop wall-paper. This is another good idea but some, as myself prefer an alternative.

    – Bookmarks

    – Save to Read later (Microsoft Edge version of Save to Read Later is Great)

    I want an alternative to FireFox which is primary for Web Development in my case, as you sometimes don’t know when FireFox will crash but I don’t want to use Chrome and I’d love to use Edge but the Edge team is slow at Development.

    Neon appears the only alternative to all of these for day to day browsing, things we all do or read on a regular basis whether once or more then once a day; Opera Neon is that browser but until the void I mentioned above is filled by the Opera Neon team it will remain simply a ‘concept’ browser that people will use occasionally but have to revert back to their regular browser, whether that is FireFox, Chrome, or Edge etc.

    • Abraham Rafael

      VPN function is missing too

  • Teddy Raoul

    I’m truly impressed and very close to make a final leap from Chrome to Neon. When will you have and Adblock for Neon?
    Meanwhile I will keep at it and see what could be different of missing, beyond an Adblock, and share any comment with you guys. Other than that I’m blown away, you have a massive winner.

  • Orrin

    I downloaded it, and it is amazing, it works very well and it looks great, but can you make it to where you can rearrange the bookmark icons?

  • Guys, Neon is awesome. I’m changing from vivaldi right now. But please, dont make Neon just a “concept browser” add some features like extensions and adblocker. This browser is amazing.

    Hi. I’m trying a way to send issues. The issue report in the app is not working (gray disabled).
    I’ve found several bugs that can help you (tested on MAC and worked several times with chromium).

    If you full-screen the search tab and you open a url (that will open up a fullscreen page) it crash. It’s a repeatable bug.

    If you snap an image of a webpage and you have another tab opened in background, it snap the hidden page, maybe because it’s over it (above in height).

    I’ve found another bug but I don’t remember it ATM.

    Hope this could help you.
    Have a nice day.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      I’m not that sure that they want to get bug reports on Neon. They are more interested in getting feedback on the new concepts, new ideas, new features.
      Bugs on those features will probably be handle when/if they migrate to Opera.

      • Norman

        I can get this but I can’t use it for basics stuff, so I can’t get if this is a good software or not. If they want to make a cool browser to read emails and find cook recepie it’s quite ok, but I need it to develop cross-platform apps and pho-js websites and I can’t get a useful feedback if the basics are not working properly.
        THEN I can give any feedback they want, that’s it 🙂

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Neon is not exactly something to be used on a regular basis. 🙂 The idea seems to be to get feedback on the UI/design and on the ‘new’ features.

          And Neon is not a product in development. There probably won’t be a new build next week or anytime soon.

          • Norman

            If this is the mean so it’s fine.
            The main idea is really good, using chromium I think is not the best idea but I hope they’ll code Neon with native code, to get the best of the OS.
            Thanks for the clarification @leonardoGomez

  • Vi.

    Would love for this to be a full fledged browser! Looks great, and feels great.

    Have been using Opera now for about a year, it’s fabulous. Just installed Neon and ….wow. What a great concept. Mind blown. Once equipped with addons (e.g. Adblock and Lastpass) I’m ready to use it full out. I’m waiting to ditch Chrome for my professional environment and use Opera, then move to Neon for private use.

  • Ionut

    I really hate Firefox’s speed, but it is the only browser that integrates all the other features that I like: don’t need to download a file if I only want to view, the possibility to delete some of the data on exit (not all, only what you want) and some other stuff.
    I would like a browser that integrates Firefox’s functionality with Opera’s speed, VPN and included adblocker

  • Sergio Dì

    Great!

    1) I need a list of shortcuts.
    2) I need to split the page horizontally.
    3) I need to share the snap cropped.
    4) I need an user interface touch-oriented (at least a hold-touch for the context menu, and moving icons with a hold touch).

  • SebBot

    Hi Krystian. Awesome Concept! Hope all the current Opera features would get implemented in this real soon. Apart from that, here are a few extra suggestions to make this even more amazing:

    1. Speed Dial folders. Also, make the speed dial a little more intelligent, as in, give it the ability to store sub-urls within the main URL folder. For example,a user might add URLs of multiple categories in Amazon(1.Sports, Fitness & Outdoors, 2.Movies, Music & Video Games,… ) to the speed dial, and these would automatically get stacked under a single folder linked to the main Amazon URL.

    2. Get rid of the title bar, it looks ugly.

    3.2 Dimensional Split Screens.

    4. Make it possible to have multiple split screens in a session.

    Heres an image so that youd get a better idea of what I’m saying:

    • LamiaLove

      The multiple split thing is available n Vivaldi.

      • SebBot

        Right. Exactly like the “Tile Tab Stack” feature in Vivaldi.
        It could be really useful for a variety of scenarios, like to compare prices from different shopping sites, reading different reviews of a same product, etc.

        The problem there being that Vivaldi (like Neon) does split sreen 1-Dimensional. This, imho, is a really bad implementation of a great idea. After three horizontally tiled stacks, it gets unusable. Which is why I’m proposing 2-Dimensional Tiled stacks.

  • There design is interesting and the browser seems fast but it has it`s flaws.

    For people who use lots of opened tabs, having them on the side on vertical is a negative thing.

    How do you add sites to speed dial ? I can`t find a logical step to do this.

    PS: tested on an Atom Tablet, Edge is still king on low power devices .. tested with 9GAG and Facebook, EDGE simply works flawless on my Atom tablet but no other browser can do this.

  • David Babel

    The multimédia aspect is awesome, but plz add support for play/pause/next keys.

  • Юлия

    go to..

    • LamiaLove

      Was that the full code?

    • LamiaLove

      HOLY CRAP! IT WAS THE FULL CODE!
      People even built it and ran it.

  • Kundan Kumar

    Why not make Opera OS …like an OS with the desktop as a browser..that would be cool

    • Abhishek Maurya

      That will fail like ChromeOS, to save which Google implemented android but what Opera will?? if OperaOS will fail???

      • cecilia

        Chromebook are not a failure. I like mine just fine. It’s a fine adjunct to my regular laptop which is multiboot.
        I use Linux to browse and would like to see this Neon avaliable on Linux for testing.

      • Emanuele Serini

        Fail? They sell more Chrome OS laptops than MacBooks

  • hossam ashraf

    is it available for linux now ?!!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nope.

  • David Neale

    Very good.
    Many of the comments seem to be directed at a finished product, when you clearly state that Opera Neon “is a concept browser – a vision of what browsers could become. It is not designed to replace the current Opera desktop browser.” It is therefore very much a work in progress and any criticism should be constructive.
    So far, no problems under MacOS Sierra. (I dislike full-screen apps, but that’s a personal thing). Hopefully, bookmarks will be added, tabs and bookmarks having different functions.

  • Ivan Ivanov

    WOW! But please, give users opportunity to arrange timeline (site’s icons) as they want. PLEASE!!!

  • extensions ! extensions ! extensions ! and it would be perfect ! Pls i love this browser !!!

    • Abhishek Maurya

      +1
      if this is chromium based there must be a way to add extensions just like we do in opera
      or simply add Ad block as its the only extension i use

    • ender

      So true ! With an addblock it would definitely be my default browser

  • Mete

    I really love it. It’s really fast and looks amazing!
    But it’s need a few feature. Add-On support, import bookmarks, Opera account sync.

    And i have little problem with may laptop. Laptop’s screen resolution is 1366×768. At opera, facebook is fit on screen. At neon, rightbar (friends online status vs..) is hiding because page width. May be, full width button or something can solve this issue.

  • draphiprat

    This is, actually, pretty nice. The only thing that missing is extentions.

  • This is a real awesome piece of coding Great clean and pretty darn Swift, no fuss browser, the only other option I’d add, Is Theme management, When you visit a web-page, we have that Great big thick white band along the top, I’d like options to slim that down, are you thinking of adding any theme options ?

    Plus there is no Bookmark management, I hate my Bookmarks not named Correctly, Is there a way now, to edit and name Bookmarked Bubbles in the side ?

  • lyl yuan

    no bookmark? when is add it and extentions?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Never?

  • Luiz

    I’m using Neon since yesterday and I’m really enjoying it…when I put the home on full-screen it looks a brand new experience in navigation, but I’d prefer that the mini player in left was permanent and not lasting just 3 second, so I could have a little window of the video I’m watching while I tweet or see my Facebook!

    But by now, Congrats Opera, it’s a really brand new thing in this whole thing called Internet!!!

    • LamiaLove

      You can drag and resize the video window from left anywhere on your screen.

      • Luiz

        oh! that’s true, my bad haha
        Thank you!
        And something else about the full-screen…what about the tabs…they really need to disappear on FS suddenly? ‘Cause without that, it seems a SO by itself!

  • Dariusz Domagała

    Revelation..!!
    This is browser from future 🙂
    Easy, fast and stable. I think, it is good option from children and other “open mind” persons 🙂
    Thank you very much 😀

    Suggestion: pleas develop bookmark management; it is only possible import from FF.

  • Teilhard Masias

    Opera Neon wipes away your desktop clutter by bringing your computer’s wallpaper into the browser.

    Why my Opera Neon won’t do it? How can I change the wallpaper? Any help, please? 🙁

    • Jan Standal

      Do you get a wallpaper with the “hand” graphics? If so, it’s because Opera Neon didn’t manage to get your desktop wallpaper. Try changig your desktop wallpaper to something else.

      • Teilhard Masias

        Yes. I get the one with a hand. I will try to do as you say. Thank you!!

  • harrypedro

    there must be a way to turn off ads, if opera have it as default, why cant neon have it? or at least a plug in? am i missing something?????

  • SteUeRunG

    If you want to incorporate some ideas into the main Opera browser the best would be in my opinion:

    1) Split screen mode for tabs in the same window (love this in Neon)

    2) Snap-to-gallery (maybe add an link “show in folder” to the gallery or a “share”-button)

    3) A sidebar (best would be the way it was in O12 activating it by just clicking on the left side of the browser)

    Thanks for bringing new Ideas and ways of design with Neon! I appreciate it 🙂

  • boa goa

    Really enjoyed the browser. I hope that Extensions will come in the future ( a gesture function with touch pad would be nice, swipe to return). Also i hope there will be some improvement in touch screen handling. Because i use it with my surface pro 3.
    Very fast, good looking browser with cool media function. Thumbs up

  • Patlex

    Doesn’t work well in portrait mode on my Surface tablet. :=/

  • Dunia Lagu

    operamini semakin bagus saja fiturnya, thanks buat info. semoga kedepannya semakin sukses dan menjadi no 1 aplikasi lagu http://freshlagu.site

  • Martin Krejčí

    This concept is really great. Opera finally looks like it should. I hope you will launch it soon.

  • Shih Min Chiu

    it will be more nice if we can group the bookmarks. and I found that when I load a very heavy websites, it becomes really laggy.

  • Patlex

    Interface can be a little more compact, specially on the right side. I fyou can remove the gap between the page open and the top panel, it would be even better. If you can add the ability to download/save the media that is currently being played on the page(as long as it’s drm free) that would be cool.

  • Aramazd Torosyan

    Is there support of Adobe flash player? I know that it is old technology, but please add some way to use it if it is necessary. Also I want know will it have can I change place of tabs to left, top, bottom of window, and can be bookmarks have folders and be smaller.

  • OstroLk

    Only for Windows?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      And Mac.

  • David L.

    I just found out about the “split screen” feature. It’s brilliant!

    • Yeah, split screen is super-slick. I love this ability in Vivaldi, loading sidebar pages. But splitting pages in the main window is awesome in Neon.

  • OstroLk

    With the mouse pointer, I can pull 2 web pages to split view, but can’do it with my finger in my touch screen. Most times I use my finger, rather than the mouse. Is there a way to make Opera Neon work with finger as the cursor on touch screens?

    Zooming, pinching and other finger gestures work, but pulling the bubble to favourites and to split screen and crop to snap doesn’t work.

    Neon is quite nice! Great work!

  • Andrey

    Very nice!

    But i have some problem with crash page when i try snip a pic while video playback(such as youtube)

    • Joorre

      OS? On my PC (Win10 64 bits), it work fine.

  • I found Neon clearly likeable, it could move in as my standard, but I also found that all video is not yet html 5 video, you have to drag along flash…

  • Love the look & feel! Doesn’t play well with a touchscreen tablet, though.

  • Hilmy

    No Linux version? -_-

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nope.

  • Tace-t

    opera neon doesn’t have bookmarks??? really?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Well, it’s a concept browser that serves to show a concept.
      It’s not exactly something to be used in a daily basis.

  • Христијан Белчовски

    This is the best browser concept i have seen so far… I just hope they will update it with new features and not just leave it like that….. I dont want to get back to my old opera browser now, this is so good i love it

  • Muhammad Ubaid Raza

    Its awesome, just the extensions missing otherwise i would already been using this as my default browser.

  • Any pages to test the different neon experiments with?

  • Love it. This is so fun to play with, and so many super cool features. Too much to talk about really!

    How can we give feedback?
    0.The video player is super cool, it would be great to be able to resize the video thumbnail. YouTube videos work, Netflix does not. But the concept is freaking awesome!.
    1. It would be great to turn off the wallpaper integration. With dual monitors, it does not work very well splitting the difference in the browser.
    2. To me the right side “bubbles” are too big, I like things tight. But I love how they are functional with volume control for example.
    3. I love that F6 actually highlights the address bar on the first press. That may seem small, but that is rad.
    4. Screen-shots without annotation are useless to me. It needs text and drawing elements.
    5. It would be super cool to be able to rearrange the bookmark bubbles on the start page.
    6. It would be good to be able to hide the right side “bubble bar” to make more room for the web content container. It is cool, but a waste of space. Make F8 show/hide the bubble bar.
    7. I love how fast and fluid the UI is. It is a real pleasure to use, fast and dedicated, solid and responsive. Amazing.
    8. The whole rendering experience is so fast. Unreal.
    9. Thank you, Tusen takk!!

    • Joorre

      0. On twitch.tv it work.
      2. Bubbles are resizing when you resize browser width, but i agree with you.

      My feedback:
      1. Add custom ctrl+tab from ‘normal’ Opera! This is insanely useful.
      2. Remove the upper bar could increase pleasure experience. IMHO.
      3. ‘Add tabs’ could be under the ‘bubbles’. Or over.
      4. ‘Opera Cast’ is amazing!
      5. Bubbles are cool! Maybe adding two versions of size? Standard and small. The small would be something like ‘group tab’.
      6. The browser starting very fast!
      7. Thank You, Tusen!

  • George Yfantopoulos

    All we need is AD-BLOCK. I already made him my main Browser. Give us Ad-Block.

    • Nico

      Yes, ad-block plus extension or a built-in ad-block like in Opera is essential !

    • David L.

      While I understand that the browser is only at the concept stage, they still want us to “play with it”; unfortunately I really can’t play with anything as long as there are ads all over the place.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        You can open a couple of pages and test the features.

    • Joorre

      I understand you, but can you support your favorite writers or website? Or stop using shit website. BUT extension are welcome 😉

  • tiliarou

    Why do you always release software with stupid online installer ? What’s the point of downloading the installer that will download the real installer ? And you didn’t even consider people behind proxy, as usual so we cannot specify the http internet proxy…

    • Emanuele Serini

      Settings > Advanced > Network, click “change proxy settings”. Or just search “proxy” in settings’ search box.

      • tiliarou

        ?? there is a setting button in the Neon installer which is just to choose to install for current user or all user, there is absolutely no option to specify a proxy. Don’t mix things up with the actual opera browser (once installed).

  • kik1n

    Mmm, I discovered another error.
    While watching YouTube in full screen, the browser froze and continues to play the sound.

    • David Neale

      YouTube full screen plays fine here, under MacOS Sierra. Which OS are you using?

      • kik1n

        Windows10 64bits.

    • Joorre

      Windows 10 64 bits(build: 14393.693): Work fine .

    • Leonardo Gomes

      No problems here. Does it work in the regular Opera?

      • kik1n

        @dragK:disqus @disqus_kdPKTr8Lw6:disqus
        Opera stable works fine, well, every browser(Chrome, Firefox, Vivaldi).
        The thing is that I was using it in fullscreen and switch (Ctrl + Tab) to other program. I do not know if that crash the browser.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Using Alt + Tab here doesn’t seems to make Neon crash.

          • kik1n

            No, I am not saying that. Just, that I was doing this many times.

        • Joorre

          I was tried switch between others tabs and programs (ctrl+tab, alt+tab) and no crash, no bugs, no error. So maybe reinstall a Opera Neon? Or wait for update.

          • kik1n

            Uhh, ok.
            Thanks.

  • Sergio Dì

    When you will “put” Neon in Opera, remember to allow to order the bubbles. I don’t have time to search where’s the bubble I need.

  • friendly m8

    maybe you need to add extension feature

  • Hoàng Long Vương

    Very good browser, outstanding design. It’s exactly what I am looking for as a replacement for Safati

  • Josef Burjeta

    Hi Opera, I couldn’t find any other option how to tell you my feedback, so here we go in comment:

    1. The concept is super cool!
    2. Love the bubbles (can be resizable, for me they are too big)
    3. Player on the left side is cool, but it will be even better if you can safe here your favorite videos, radios etc.
    4. Making quick crop images – hell yeah! I was waiting for this a long time. Great!
    5. Resizable videos from player are awesome, but they run in pretty low fps, my guess is 10-15 fps max, it’s really laggy.
    6. Main page with bubbles, that you use most of the time are on top and the less use are down. That’s great, love this feature.
    7. Opera mouse gestures? Where are they? I miss them so much, that’s why I use simultaneously both browsers.
    8. Import settings only from IE? Why? Why? Oh god, why? What about Opera, Chrome, etc.?
    9. Czech language after some time?
    10. If I sum all together – great new generation browser, I would love to use it instead of Opera, but it still needs plenty of work to be perfect.

  • Carolina Barcelos

    I love the concept! I downloaded but I won’t stay using by now, there are some important resources missing in relation to the current browsers.
    1 – Possibility to manage the favorites (In Neon we cant move or create groups)
    2 – Would be nice if when I open 2 different pages of the same site (for example 2 facebook pages) both stay together in the side bar, like some “sub tabs”.
    Sorry for the english, i’m brazilian.

  • Mitch Gietema

    I love the browser and i use it every day but im walked into a little thingie. When i want to use the browser in fullscreen the internet tab will go fullscreen and i just want the browser to not do that xD. So my request is if you guys can take a look at that

  • davide grandeppieno

    Don’t work with the new #TouchBar

  • James

    please add better touch support:
    – can’t drag popout video
    – can’t select crop area

    great job, this is awesome!!

  • Martin Krejčí

    It should be in fullscreen. Without Windows taskbar displayed. And it also should replace the default close and minimize buttons by something better looking.

  • Martin Krejčí

    The menu options should roll out of the sidebar the same way as the player, gallery and downloads.

  • Falconet

    Everyone,

    Opera is not going to develop this any further.
    They confirmed on Twitter. The version they released is the only version there will be.
    See: twitter.com/opera/status/819847242890743809

    • WARSHH

      Any link about this ? I didn’t find anything. And why would they do that if it’s true ? I don’t get it.

      • Falconet
        • WARSHH

          Thank you ! Well just need to wait then.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        As the post says, it’s a concept browser. The idea is to show a concept and not to create a new browser.

    • That’s very upsetting. They need to develop it more.

      • Leonardo Gomes

        It’s a concept browser. The idea is to show new concepts and ideas that may be implemented in Opera in the future.

        • Jan Standal

          Please read this from the blog post above: “Opera Neon is a concept browser – a vision of what browsers could become. It is not designed to replace the current Opera desktop browser. However, we do plan to incorporate some of its best new features into Opera for computers as early as spring 2017.”

  • Kerry

    Its nice to have innovative browser tried and its awesome 4/5 but what happen to your built in adblock or VPN like original opera browser, anyway its a start right Version 1.0.2459.0

    • Leonardo Gomes

      “While Opera Neon has lots of new features – and many of the Opera browser features you know and love – there are some key features we have not included, such as our native ad-blocker, VPN and the ability to add extensions. The reason for this is simply that Opera Neon is a concept browser, built for experimentation and play.”

      • Kerry

        Good to know that is experimentation since am literally using it right now its actually good and fast

  • Manuel

    Hi, I love Neon, its a unique and fantastic browser.
    Beautiful interface, it ‘s a good idea.
    Excellent concept.

    Sorry for my english, i’m from Mexico

  • Cina

    Hi,
    it’s very interesting! perfect 🙂
    i like it… i love neon from opera. plz save it, develop it, and love it.
    i think its very good if users use opera neon on mobile!

  • Genghis Kong

    Nice try. Neon looks puretee. But, ultimately fails for right now with ability to ONLY import from Internet Explorer. Who uses that days? I’ll stick to regular Opera for now until things are more functional.

    • Jan Standal

      Opera Neon is a concept release, hence we do not encourage importing settings from other browsers.

      • LamiaLove

        Did you ever have so much user engagement on a blog post as you had on the launch of Neon?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Most probably, yes. There were some blog posts with lots of comments.

          • LamiaLove

            I skimmed through the blog and the highest I could find is about 650, which means the answer is yes, but it will soon turn into a no.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            I’m pretty sure that many posts lost their comments info when the blo address changed.

            The posts related to the change to Chromium for sure had lots of comments as well the first Opera Blink ones.

        • Jan Standal

          Good question. We have been very fortunate the last year with lots of feedback also for the native ad-blocker and VPN release. We are very thankful and humble about all the feedback and suggestions were getting!

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Over 1.000 comments on the post about built-in VPN release: http://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/2016/04/free-vpn-integrated-opera-for-windows-mac/

    • LamiaLove

      As someone else said in the comments, if you really want to import stuff, you can import it in Firefox from your browser, then import in Neon from Firefox.

    EDIT: I can’t cancel download, and speed is very very very very slow in China.

    It will be better if tabs list can collapse, it’s too large, white webpage background with large black sidebar, really ugly

  • Biohazard

    Look like an OS.

  • Martin Krejčí

    Maybe you could make something like Chrome OS with this browser.

  • Martin Krejčí

    Maybe the “New tab” button should be on the right tab bar. I don´t want to move the mouse all over the screen.

    • Jan Standal

      just hit the “_” button. It basically do the same.

      • Martin Krejčí

        You probably didn´t understand me (I´m sorry for my bad English). When I hit the “_” button it will minimize current tab. But when I want to open new tab I have to move mouse to the right sidebar and click on “+” button. But when tabs are on the left side, why the “New tab” button is on the right side. “New tab” button and tabs should be together.

        • Jan Standal

          Try hitting the “_” button and type a URL/Search –> You will get a new tab. Functionally speaking it does the same as “+”

          • Martin Krejčí

            Oh, now I understand you. Sorry.

    • LamiaLove

      If you click the current tab, it will minimize it and have the same effect as clicking the + button.
      No need to move to the left toolbar.

  • Martin Krejčí

    Add touch-screen gesture to close tabs by swiping them right.

    • LamiaLove

      Gestures (both mouse and touch) would be the first thing I would want added in Neon.

  • Martin Krejčí

    This app would be even better as UWP (Universal Windows Platform) app in the Windows Store (for Windows 10 Mobile too).

  • Joseph muli

    Neon is really pissing me off, I can’t seem to paste links or even google something, I keep getting a refresh or it just freezes when I go full screen plus I can’t access my tabs!! this is a really bad start opera!!!!

  • proxxy

    I think is better to focus on opera browser to make the best browser (for me it is already) and to gain more market share than creating useless forks of opera.

    • Jan Standal

      Don’t worry. We have great plans for Opera.

      • proxxy

        Glad to hear that. Anyway, any plans to make Opera less cpu intensive on mac os? I use Safari only because Opera turns on fans every two minute. Macbook 2011.

  • ragavs

    So far soo Awesome.. Loving the Concept..Please give us a Ad Block feature too

  • X-oR

    “Like the Opera browser, Opera Neon is built on top of the Blink engine, but unlike any other browser, Opera Neon has been built from scratch to bring you cool effects and animations without slowing down your experience.” but…but…you haven’t built it from scratch, it’s based on CHROME, and it’s quite obvious when reaching the settings part of it…more over, use neon on this website: http://mon-navigateur.com/ and you will see that it’s recognized as chrome 53.0…

    • X-oR

      ok right, chromium…but I don’t get it when you are a company with such a great browser like opera. Why switch on chromium?

    • Jan Standal

      So many different comments/questions here. Since 2012 we use Blink and Chromium as the engine in our Opera browsers, so is our concept browser Opera Neon. We both tune the engine as much possible (like we do with battery saver in Opera) and we contribute back to the open source projects pushing them forward. The Opera Neon concept is indeed a complete rewrite from the Opera desktop browser, but conceptually and technically. The reason the website you link does not recognise it as Opera is because Opera Neon currently has a different identification that Opera, and the website doesn’t know this, hence it makes the mistake.

    Would be interesting to here how you want to address people who needs to work with the browser.
    Bookmarks e.g.

    • Jan Standal

      We already have bookmarks in the Opera browser 🙂 Please see the blog post above.

      • jho

        Do you mean the bubbles? I do not see any bookmarks. Sorry.

        An example: I have 13 folders in the bookmarks bar. Within these folders also folders. And a lot of bookmarks. How do you want to solve that with the bubbles?

  • patkoscsaba

    I played with it for a few minutes. It’s fantastic! Now I can’t wait for some of this UI to end up in Opera Desktop. The concept is great, the user interaction is superb. And I like that tabs go to the right in circles. There is so much horizontal space wasted today when viewing web pages, you took care of this while maximizing vertical space.

  • Servet Hosaf

    we can give feedbacks?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It’s basically what the majority of the comments in this post are doing.

      • Servet Hosaf

        Yes but it’ll be lost here and can’t upload related screenshot

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Why it would be lost?
          You can upload your screenshot somewhere and post the link here.

          • Servet Hosaf

            Feedbacks will be lost among 600 comments for sure

          • Leonardo Gomes

            So one feedback would be lost among 500 others?
            Not that bad, I guess.

      • Servet Hosaf

        why are you so stubborn to get it

        • Leonardo Gomes

          To get what?

  • Nagato

    How long it will be till Neon gets support of plugins bookmarks password syncing etc? So i could use it as main browser.

  • Dadich Lntrovabl

    When put addons in neon

  • Lukas Holona

    I absolutelly love it. Light. Years Ahead 😉

  • I am LOVING Opera neon but I do miss extensions.

    • Teddy Raoul

      Me too, but only few.

  • Steerpike7

    Enjoying this browser very much. Forget about the idea of it being a “concept.” This has become my go-to browser. I hope Opera keeps developing it instead of just cannibalizing features for the Opera desktop browser, which I quit using quite a long time ago.

  • Gregmhl

    Why my background is not my wallpaper ?

    • LamiaLove

      It is not? Weird. What is your background and what is your wallpaper?

      • Gregmhl

        The background is an image with a “futurist” hand and my wallpaper change every 15 minutes (music / guitar wallpaper)

        • LamiaLove

          There are two things here.
          1. Neon will not update the background image if your desktop wallpaper changes. At least it doesn’t on my machine. I don’t think it has this feature.
          2. I’m pretty sure somebody was having the hand issue and someone else gave him a fix somewhere in the comments here. I think the fix was to change the desktop wallpaper and try again. Not sure how that fix works with your changing wallpaper, though.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            1) It does on mine.

          • LamiaLove

            No fair! I want that too!
            Wait! What OS do you have? I run Windows 7.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Windows 10.

  • Raspdealer

    It will be great to use mobile icons when defined (ios/android add to homescreen ones) instead of the page preview in the tabs bubble 🙂

  • I LOVE OPERA ! FAST LOADING. :*

  • Sergio Dì

    I’m loving Neon and, please, try to replicate its overall speed and rendering speed in the upcoming Operas. It’s what surfers needs.

  • MCusanelli

    Can’t be bothered to test this without the ability to add adblock extensions. Browsing any website without one is a no go. The only fair assessment i can give of the browser as its stands right now is a 1/10.

    Add in the ability to add extensions then i’ll consider opera.

  • tigerclawn82

    It looks cool but right side takes too much space. Is there anyway i can make it just like left side?

    • I want the same, but i think they just can’t hide the navigation functionality or make is smaller.

  • Carlos S. Na

    Love it. Sometimes, the keys are not properly captured by the browser (like an intro key to post a message in facebook).

  • Love the concept. I’m very exited for this new browser.

  • Pietro

    Very nice concept!!! Waiting for the adBlock option … !

  • Joy

    oh la la !! this is what something which we need 🙂

  • Nightishaman

    Please continue this browser parallel to the normal Opera.

  • Its why i love use opera!!!!! Love itss

  • Isaac Bordons

    Awesome, please do not discontinue! Is the Ueno agency behind the UX or design?

  • Stephane Vittoria

    I downloaded it on my iMac on Friday, January 13 and so far I launched it more often than my Safari browser. I love the cleanliness of the layout and the interface is so calm and stress free.
    I love the concept and I hope the team will continue to develop Opera Neon.

  • Bloo2

    @janstandal:disqus When can we stack favorites bubbles ? I have a lot of favs, and need folders… I switch to Opera Neon the second it get that !

  • Paul Bentley

    Needs bookmarks. Speed dial is fine for most users, but power users can have hundreds of bookmarks –
    personally, mines over 100, divided into approx 20 folders, often with sub-folders.

    pity, cuz the speed is great, if a little unstable.

    • LamiaLove

      Power users know speed dials and bookmarks are the same thing. Try Vivaldi and you will understand.

      • jho

        Vivaldi also spents a lot of time in some stuff which is not really a power users need. Phlills Hue e.g. Or slow HTML5, CSS user interface.

        • LamiaLove

          So?

  • Sandra Fiffe

    At the very least, I hope you integrate the features of Neon into regular Opera because it looks awesome.

  • Yassine Naitaissi

    awesome job guys, this is the best navigator ever, i wish if there is a feature that allow me to import my favoris from google chrome, and also adding the “reading mode” will be awesome

  • Min Seo

    Fantatstic! however, when I try to put Korean into the search bar, it always creates errors.
    I really hope that it will work soon!

  • Akash P James

    The browser is very nice, but one feedback I have is, the tabs on the right side eats up a lot of space and the total browser window size is very small. On the top also we have some blank space. Try to give customisation to the user at least. I liked the concept overall. We need something fresh like this in a while after all. Great work guys.

  • Alexey

    I must say I really like what I see. I like the bubbles idea and I like the looks. If I had my Opera link here and the extensions, I’d be all over this new cool Opera instead of the boring old one (yup, it is boring). =)

    I wish there was a hot key or a mouse gesture that would group the open bubbles right in front of you, like the task view feature does it on Windows 10 with open apps.

  • I like this browser and it look like useful. Very nice concept

  • BobbyZero

    I like Neon very much even though it’s pretty basic regarding the functionalities. Everyone has their wishes, ofc, and mine would be built-in adblock and mouse gestures, but this is a nice start. The new UI is very appealing and interesting even though it leaves a few things to be desired (more UI consistent fullscreen and less screen estate). Keep it up!

  • Mr.R

    The Music Play button – Not Sure How to Use it.
    The Icons in the Desktop looks Movable but I am not able to Move it. (only Delete)
    It will be nice to have my accounts already signed in (Twitter, FB, LinkedIn) here. But Its not, so I have to Login again.

    Awesome Product. I am just planning to start using this as a Primary Browser.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Go to to a site that has html5 media (i.e. Youtube) and play that media. Then click on the ‘play’ button and you will that media also there.
      There you will be able to play/pause the media, open a pop-out window so you can watch the video while in another page and so on.

  • The browser is nice. It is awesome. It is very cool. It is very neon-ist. The video pop up is also awesome, so is the cropping tool. However, the window can’t be resized. I would like Opera to give more customization for users. The bubble tab is good but it is better if it is placed on the top or floating on the window.

  • micha Gerkema

    I like the browser very much. Although I would like to be able to resize the tab-menu on the right to be as small as the bar on the left. Maybe it can expand on hover.

  • Daniele credidio

    I Like this browser very much. Although I’dd like to be able to organize the “favorite bubble” in folders and to move it

  • Mustafa Aydın

    Very nice concept.

  • İzmir Yalıtım

    The concept is great, the user interaction is superb. And I like that tabs go to the right in circles.

  • Mr.R

    Unable to Share the Cropped Image from the Gallery. (Twitter / FB is not being displayed). It will be nice to Drag the Cropped Image to the Twitter or FB. Unable to Open the Location where the file stored from File -> Location. Unable to Directly Add the File from Twitter – Taking a Spin and Its really great browser.

    • Leonardo Gomes

      The snap-in feature is more of a tool to allow the user to create a visual bookmark, hence you can’t share the cropped image.

      But it would be interesting if we could use that image.

    • Daniele credidio

      you can recover the Cropped Image smply drag it on your desktop… but in this way you’ll move it permanently!

  • Kapildev

    Nice concept, I am going to use it as my primary web browser if:
    1. There are supported extensions, for example Internet Download Manager Extension
    2. There is ad blocker and vpn included
    3. Closing a tab will move focus to the last viewed tab not the immediately-next-to-it tab!

    Keep it up! I want this browser to be a mainstream browser.

  • Helder

    Great browser! It is certainly a perfect candidate for my main browser on my 8″ Windows 10 tablet 🙂 You just need to adjust the interface for touch (how do I remove a bubble on the “quick dial” screen with touch?), and support bookmarks 🙂 Oh and including adblock and vpn are an absolute must. If I have that, I don’t need extensions anymore.
    Thanks!

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Wow, fantastic! Opera keeps inventing beautiful things. Guys, you never stop surprising me. It’s as if you always know somehow what I’d like. 🙂

    Downloaded, installed, starting exploring. Looks very fast. Bubble shaking under mouse pointer and smoke puff upon deletion look a bit distracting. The Document Explorer is already there. The history shows my browsing history from IE (not Odev). Things I miss the most are my bookmarks from Odev, extensions (mostly ad blocking), and permanent zoom settings for HiDPI. But I believe you’re going to add settings and features from the main browser in due time.

    The first association to the browser’s name,
    “Neon lights
    Shimmering neon lights
    And at the fall of night
    This city’s made of light”

    🙂

    HI friends if u read this i want to thank u all this is a perfect browser ever used ui is awesome if there is and integrate word and powerpoint website it would do all my work withou hassle it would be os for me the concept can be improved by some small small features it missed such as the magnification should be there like a magnification glass by pressing m and movable with the mouse and some other which i would never get but these smallthings are imprtant

  • Leandro

    It’s a great browser, but i will not use until ad-block is supported.

  • damien balima

    It’s great and fresh browser. I use it instead of others now. Just there’s same problem with bubbles than with tabs on classic browser, they tend to be to numerous, and we are lost between them. Maybe could be nice to have a better bubbles management, like a button to remove all old unused bubbles, or closing all bubbles that are down to the active bubble, or to regroup bubbles of same site. I like the dev windows too, for web developers.

  • Nice browser, but you can’t move around bookmarks and closing tabs doesn’t have a pop animation. Maybe add a setting that hides the tab and/or left bar until mouseover? I’m also not sure if auto update works. And like everone’s saying, basic Opera extension support would be nice.

  • Oz

    Great great browser!.
    Since i installed and used, i just loved it, but i agree with the other people.
    1. Need extensions
    2. An Ad Blocker embeded.
    3. Bookmarks (PLEASE)
    4. Admin the croped images, like share or save for instance.
    5. A “General Bubble” for organize the pages, for instance one bubble for the mail bubbles, for the social pages, etc.
    Thanks and keep that way!

  • How do I bookmark a page?!

    • Oz

      Move the bubble to the home page…

      • Thank you! So to bookmark this very page for example, I firstly need to ‘minimise’ it then drag the bubble to the desktop? Unless I’m doing it wrong, seems a bit long-winded?

        Then how do I group bookmarks, create folders?

        • Oz

          That is precisely what I am asking, markers are better.

  • Is it just me or does it become unusable when viewed in full screen mode on a Mac?

    where can I block ads?. thats the main reason I use opera. also the battery saver. (I do not know if it really works)

    keep working. you are doing a really great tool!

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You can’t as the post clearly says.

    • Fernando Fernandez

      It’s a concept browser, not precisely meant for daily use but for experimentation purposes, as clearly stated on the blog post.

      • CK

        I hope this changes… I really liked it, I want it as my standard browser.

  • Herr Pietrus

    I’m afraid that because of all these troll’s posts they will abandon Opera 4x and release a new version with round tabs only!
    😀

    BTW – if all these opinions are true it show how different are… different users groups. Do you imagine that advanced and long-term Opera’s user would say that he need only some extensions, ad-blocker and bookmarks to be happy? And that these round tabs are ergonomic in their current form? And that he’d like to run Neon in full-screen mode like UWP applications in Win 8/8.1?

    😀

  • CK

    It is really a good browser. I’m waiting anxious for new updates. I’ve been using Opera for more than 3 years, but now I’m almost changing definitely for this browser. I)’m just waiting new options come with updates like the option for changing the icons places at initial page. We need description for the icons set to the left side of the screen. An important thing too is compatibilize the navigator with extensions of the usual Opera (I want to install AdBlock) and, of course, make translations for another languages. I’m Brazilian, so I want it in Brazilian portuguese (please don’t make it just in Portugal Portuguese)

    God bless you!

  • Paul Bentley

    A Couple of problems have arisen: Sometimes the fullstop and spacebar causes the page to crash. Reload and click with the mouse solves this.
    2: This text box has disappeared . Actually, it’s no longer expanding to let me see the text I’m typinbg. (sorry for any spelling mistakes! (scroll-wheel on the mouse solves this.

    Finally, We need to be able to rename the speed dial items. I have a couple of amazon links (normal and vine) and it’s awkward to have two nearly identical ones. Let us rename them. better yet BOOKMARKS.

  • Raja Srinivasan

    Nice. Wish you had added the VPN option available with the older Opera Browser.

  • trashcanbin

    I have been using it exclusively for the past few days. No dice. Concept is good, but the lack of essential add ons are no go. Hint: Adblocks.

    I know it’s a concept, but it’s still not suitable.

  • Insane

    Awesome browser, will use it as default one after these features are added:
    1. Ad Blocker + Browsec.
    2. GESTURES please (can’t do without ’em anymore)
    3. Bookmarks.
    4. Bubbles setup (rename, consolidation, etc.)

    Keep it up guys, you’re doing great work.

  • Rafi Rosenblum

    I love it. It will be great if no title bar in tablet mode on Windows 10. Thank you for a super browser.

  • Vrajesh Bhavsar

    I like it a lot but the settings are not good. I was using Google Chrome previously and when I installed Opera Neon and go to the Import Settings there were only two options : 1. Internet Explorer and 2. Mozilla Firefox. Windows 10 is giving Internet Explorer pre-installed. There should be two more settings like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Only this thing I didn’t like in this. Overall great browser.

  • DARKPARTICLE

    i love it but no adblock and you cant loging with your opera account

  • Stanislav Stratil

    Installed, set as main browser, and used for 3 days.
    Now I have one tip for other users, and some basic feedback.

    TIP for other users: If you still dont know, this feature: “Snap-to-gallery lets you snapshot and crop any part of a web page and save it to the gallery for later.” is not actually well presented… Cause this feature, is not just snap from Edge, but it can be used as some sort of basic bookmarks without folders… Its similar to opera bookmarks, but instead of choosing some icon, you will just snap part of some website and save it. This picture will work also as a bookmark… which is actually interesting and works well.

    Feedback: My first impression on this browser was really good, I like it a lot. But after some use, I started to notice that im constantly lost in my opened websites (try gmail or google translator).

    The miniatures in bubbles are confusing, cause on some websites, it just snaps some not so distinctive part, and its pretty hard to identify by a look, so I must focus on small title under bubble or favicon, which is causing situation like “maybe it was this one?”

    Also current tab (bubble) is pretty unnoticable, its just white ring, and I usually cant identify my current tab (bubble… lets call it just bubble). I think there should be some more noticable distinction of current active bubble.
    Maybe bubbles are not so good idea for this… what about just 16:9 screens of websites like rectangles instead of bubbles?. Or force websites to use zoomed favicon?

    Also, bubbles on start page… Its a mess. Not the design, but too many identical websites with subdomains. It shows youtube.com/video1 and also youtube.com/video2 and youtube.com/video3 it just shows too much, so its a mess.
    Maybe it shoud be somehow forced to use only main domain, like youtube.com and nothing else. Any other subdomains like youtube.com/video1 could be added manually.

    Anyway, its awesome browser, and something fresh. I dont know why, but I somehow can focus more on the website with this browser. I wonder what would happen, if users started to use Neon more than current Opera? What would you developers do?
    But im not saying that Opera is bad browser… cause I was using that until now… And I think I will use it again, cause of my confusion with bubbles.

  • Dmitry Kirin

    A note on screen capture:

    it would be great to name snapshots in accordance with time, like 20170118184212.png or something.

    I’ve also noticed that they are draggable outside, to disk, as files, or to Word, as embedded pictures. That’s cool. What else could be useful is organising them into folders and selecting multiple pictures and dragging them to disk at once.

  • TudorB

    It’s really nice but I won’t be using it as it lacks the most important extension ever: AdBlock.

    • Better to support sites that give you free content with ads. I’m sure a bunch you go to get paid with ads and you get quality content, news, etc. I’m over AdBlock

    • Tratsing

      Use Adguard for Windows and you don’t need an extension.

    • James

      I don’t know if Neon has it, but Opera has a good built-in adblocker already. Besides, AdBlock isn’t actually very good, if you continue to use Chrome or Firefox, you should use ublock origin.

  • Crop to snap isn’t working if you have an iframe.

  • Michael Hansen

    Really really like the design, the subtle animations and overall UI. But if I am going to replace Firefox it needs a few things:
    1. Extensions (Ghostery, AdBlock and so on.)
    2. Bookmarks
    3. On mac it needs to work the same way in and out of fullscreen mode. The cool sidebars are gone when i switch to full screen on mac (a bug maybe?)

    Keep up the awesome work! 😀

  • Dmitry Kirin

    Trying to get used to Neon as a primary browser at work. Added a few of my work web applications as “speed dial” bubbles. They are shown as previews, which are quite meaningless in my case, as the pages don’t actually have any big pictures. To help distinguish them, I made different favicons. So the bubbles now look as small distinct round favicons over bigger but meaningless round previews. I know it’s a bad idea to scale up favicons. But something should be done with it. (Should web authors provide a higher-resolution favicons?)

    I LOVED IT!!

    The Best User Interfaced Browser I have Ever Seen..Great job

  • medyum
  • Quentin

    Hello, after some days of test and use, it’s a great, innovative browser, and perfect for media/daily surfing. Keep working on !
    Just a little thing: I have trouble on playing some videos (on facebook for example), just day me an error on the player, a script failed.

    This browser need few more features, but it’s on the right way !

  • Vaclav

    Best browser ever, but!!! extension / bookmarks are a must-have. E.g. when I want to save a page for later I use Pocket – how can I save a page from Neon to Pocket?

  • As a long time user of Chrome, I find Neon a refreshing change, but as most posters on here have said, some extensions like an ad-blocker, Ghostery, bookmarks and others need to be added. I like minimalist look, not so in-your-face as the other browsers are. I’ll carry on trialling it and decide in a few days whether or not to keep it.

    • James

      Well, regular Opera has a built-in adblocker, since it runs on the chrome engine, it can probably accept many chrome extensions, but I don’t know if that’s true; regular Opera can.

  • Tony

    Is Opera and the new Neon still safe to use it worries me that the chinese have control of all of the decisions and so forth , before i install either one are they still safe to use now that the chinese own the company ?.

    • Olli

      Nobody knows, it’s not open-source software.

      • Tony

        makes me wonder how much control the chinese have over development and so forth, do you still use it have you noticed a difference at all?.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Even if it was the case, do you really think that they would be able to do something without being noticed?

          Also, your computer probably has parts of it made in China as well as your phone, TV, modem, router, etc. Couldn’t they have been stolen your data already? I guess it would be more easy to do it with a hardware than a software.

          • Tony

            very good point all thanks for the insite on this and for laying my mind at to rest 🙂 i think i will give it a try after all like you all i doubt the are going to do anything .

        • LamiaLove

          Even if something shady would happen in the browser, as a regular user, one cannot tell. If you can and want to do some investigations, like analyzing the Internet traffic of your browser, you could find stuff, but as a regular user you couldn’t notice any differences.

          What differences would you expect, anyway? It just works like a browser.

    Opera Neo is a battery hog even compared to Chrome. If you can make Neo be more battery efficient that would be cool

  • Josep Ll. Ortega

    I like the idea behind NEON and find it beautifully designed. However, currently it allows for viewing webs but not for working with data, for that you need it to connect to whatever you use (MS Notes, Evernote, bookmarks, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc).

    A different thing is that since it is presented as a concept browser, perhaps it could develop as a kind of mind mapping browser. For example see the MS KnowledgeBase builder or other extense mind mapping software. This would connect the bubbles in meaningful and useful ways.

    • Dmitry Kirin

      Great idea! It’s only now that I realize what I’ve been missing: bubbles connected, their entire constellations highlighted on mouse hover. What a field for visual optimization!

      • Josep Ll. Ortega

        With a bit more thinking, I see many possibilities. Below are the ones who have came to my mind with a little brainstorming. I think that if Neon evolved in this direction it would truly become a new kind of browser for the XXI century. Note that many of the possibilities have already been implemented by third parties. Perhaps Neon could use them:
        – Network creation, management and navigation (like KnowledgeBase Builder, http://www.buildyourmap.com/, or theBrain, which is much too complicated)
        – Possibility to annotate websites (combination of Edge and hypothes.is)
        – Possibility to annotate bubbles an set bubble keywords for seaching
        – Option to share to social networks (Facebook, Twitter, G+, but also for example snaring screen captures to Pinterest)
        – Option to make webpages clean and easy to read (like Clearly)
        – Bubbles could have different handles for sharing, creating bubble note, setting keywords, etc. that would show if bubble is shared and to which social networks, has a note, has been annotated, has keywords, etc.
        – Possibility to select text and have a proper citation created

        – Bubbles could have different handles for sharing, creating bubble note, setting keywords, etc. that would show if bubble is shared and to which social networks, has a note, has been annotated, has keywords, etc.
        – Possibility to select text and have a proper citation created

    Nice browser with good design interface! Few questions:
    1. How to change wallpaper in Neon?
    2. How to change speed dial icon/logo?

    • Stanislav Stratil

      I think there is currently no way to change any of these.

  • Love the concept. It’s been a while since anyone did anything innovative with a web browser – I remember Opera introducing me to tabbed browsing many moons ago. I’d second the call for extensions as I use a few of them routinely – Adblock first and foremost. Look forward to seeing how this develops.

  • Tiong

    Probably one of the most used browser recently. But when the speed dial get more and more icon, it become messy and lost it function. Maybe FOLDER would solve the problem.

    Been using Neon for several days now and it has become my default browser. I really enjoy using it! Haven’t enjoyed having a new browser so much since Firefox was new back in early 2000’s. It is really fast on my 8 1/2 year old iMac.

      It uses the Flash player installed on your system, at least on Windows.

            Which plugin was turned off ?

            It’s the Adobe flash player, open a new tab and go to chrome:plugins and check the “always allow plugin”

    This browser is awesome. I hope, i can use it as my default browser. But as other people are saying, it lacks of features and options. And i am not talking about luxurious features as gesture, bubble optimization etc. Some must-have features like built-in ad blocker, full screen browsing and minimum collection of add-ons would do.

    I have used many browser with tons of features, but they get slower, more ram-hungry over time. I hope, this won’t happen with Opera Neon too.

    It looks great. Works smoothly and brilliantly. I have one question tho. What I absolutely LOVE in the regular Opera is pinning tabs. Is it going to be possible in the Opera Neon? Maybe it’s already implemented and I just don’t see it? I always have at least 10 tabs opened and scrolling them does not really do it for me. If there’d be some pinning mechanism that would allow to store pinned tabs on the left under the download button or something similar it would be awesome!

    however like many say, extensions are needed and I personally would like at least some tools to modify new features or functions like: browser remembers video pop-up size and position, or settings for tabs, they are very impractical, escpecially how they wiggle on hover

    I like it, but I think some things can get better, like if you can move around the
    Quick access tabs, extensions, change background, browser style (like with the tabs up or a side, that thing to see a video without being in the page, I know it has it but I like more the Opera just 1 click thing.)

  • xenopont

    A browser is the two lines at the top of the screen: tabs and address+ext. You took right side from the pages I read and gave me back thumbnail of my tabs, so now anyone near my computer can see what I read.
    The old microsoft mistake: bring recently used at top or change a position of buttons/menu items/whatever. More than ten years ago all the UI developers get to know that a user expects to find his tools where he left them. Not where you decided to put them automatically after the last use.
    Neon is bad, guys. Don’t do the browser for stupid people. Left for the web pages as much space as possible.

    • LamiaLove

            We are talking here about Opera Neon, don’t we?

          • LamiaLove

            Yes, but you are asking for very specific things which I only know to exist in Vivaldi (and old Opera).

          • xenopont

            Not sure… I didn’t even start asking about tab groups and everything. I was talking about very generic features which are mandatory for any user interface.

    Is there a way to import or use the bookmarks from my regular Opera installation?
    Is there a 64bit version? The Install file installed a 32bit version which is no good for me because I dont want 32bit versions.
    Is there a way to maxime the webpage on the screen without using F11? The webpage titlebar is too big and takes too much space and the Icons on the left for the open pages are too big taking valuabe viewing state. Its probably fine on a big monitor but on a laptop screen its too much.

    Hey Guys,

    i love chrome for the simple ui and the built-in features. Chrome’s ui is simple and very fast to use. But the UI is pretty old and is functional but not pretty. All tries i saw to change the UI made the browser just slower to use and didn’t look very well…I love ur new ui concept. It looks awesome. Also the “video in own window” function is great! I guess the design is even better on an device with touch. And because it’s build on the chromium project it has the same shortcut’s so i can still work fast with it. Is there some developer site or an beta stream?

    I know the browser is pretty young but i have some feature requests.
    – there is no tooltip or something similar when u click on a download, just the download symbol changes when it starts to download.. i would suggest some other small information like a tooltip or an effect where maybe the bubble u can see in the sidebare slides into the download icon in the sidebar
    – when u drag&drop the bubbles out of the current window it could create a new window with the bubble automatically. right now u have to create the new window manually and drag the bubble into the new window…
    – support for chrome extensions like usual opera has
    – when you enter a pagename in the adressbar with a search bar on the start page like google, amazon, dict.cc… u can directly use the page-search with press [TAB] like in chrome
    – sync passwords/favorites etc. so u can use the browser on multiple devices
    – some kind of fullscreen mode where it hides the sidebars and the big adress bar so the website is fullscreen inside the window (not like fullscreen mode over the whole screen like [F11] Fulllscreen mode). (Like [STRG]+[M] in Eclipse)
    -pin tabs to sidebar

    But it’s still an awesome new browser u built and i know the browser is very young. Probably some of the requested featrures are already in development or on the roadmap.

    greets

    • Manuel Bochröder

      Oh and one more request:
      – the “video in own window” function could be smarter. it should recognize when the page reload to get to the next video like youtube does and show the next video in the same window. right now u have to open the “video in own window” after each reload (if u play an playlist or activated autplay). and it’s not working with netflix 🙂

      But again: great concept, looking forward for updates

    Will there be an update soon? Having it crash when I use the fullstop is annoying. If there’s no update in the near future, I’ll just uninstall it, as it’s pretty unusable for anything that requires keyboard input. It’s just too erratic.

      I guess the post already answers your question. It’s a concept browser, it won’t be updated (at least on a regular basis).

    Hello,
    i really like Neon, apart from what others say – extensions, adlbock etc. I would like to give my feedback on the user interface:

    what annoys me is that i have to move my mouse to the left to create a new tab, but tabs are stacked on the right side of the screen.
    this is a bad interface design, as for using tabs, you have to move your mouse from left to right completely over your screen.
    tabs must be on the same side as the button +for creating new tabs.

    (Opera made the same mistake on the new design at Opera Android.)
    Perfect would be to allow us to position the buttons as we like, if i could have all buttons and tabs on one side – perfect.

    or just hide all the left buttons and only show them with mouse-over. and put the +tab on the right side.

    • LamiaLove

      You don’t really need the + button. All it does is minimize the current tab. You can get the same behavior by clicking the minimize button of the current page or by clicking on the current tab.

      • icetom

        still, UI design was made for beautiful optic, not for usability.

        • LamiaLove

          Well, it depends where you want to use the UI.
          If you want to optimise its usability for keyboard and mouse, it’s best to have keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures.
          If you want to optimise its usability for touchscreen, it’s best to have most of the UI on the sides.
          So, where do you want to use the UI?

    Please integrate Adblock & co… and also support for Apple’s Magic Mouse and Trackpad. The “swipe back” from the left side to the middle to go back to the previous page.

    Please add closing tabs like messenger on phone!

    • LamiaLove

      What do you mean?

      • Jimmy

        Being able to drag the tabs (circles) down to a bin or something like that where the tabs then close once released over it.

        • andreyin

          What? Just click the X on the circle to close the tab (or click with the middle mouse button)..

          • Jimmy

            Yes, but I believe MattJoke had the idea that it might be a fancy feature to have in a concept browser. And I was simply explaining what I understood from the comment 🙂

          • LamiaLove

            But you cannot do that using your finger on a touchscreen.

        • LamiaLove

          I understand now.

  • HOTD Fan

    I Like this browser a lot but its clunky and slow at times, and is also really slow when going full screen on videos and i’ve also had the problem of videos freezing, or pausing the video and the audio still plays.

  • HOTD Fan

    Any of you with an ad block problem, while its not integrated you can use something like Ad Muncher <– Freeware, or Ad Guard <– not freeware, which can watch your internet and filter out ads without needing an extension. i personally use ad guard so i cant vouch for how well ad muncher works… But some filtering is better than none ad guard uses filter lists that adblock plus does and many more lists so i havent had an ad problem with it.

  • Dean Buckfield

    LIke the new browser, a little getting used to, but quite easy. One problem I have with it is when I type the at symbol in anything, causes the page to crash.

  • Eli

    Nice concept, here are a few improvements to make:
    – support more type of video for video pop out (for example a video streaming wasn’t recognized)
    – support for extensions
    – smaller or retractable search bar

      Well, of course not. It’s not meant to compete with Opera.

  • Lee Sze Yong

    please add adblocking; first feature that most require in a browser

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Nothing will be added.

  • raphah

    I didn’t like this browser. no extensions, no adblock

    Hi
    From a long time i am using opera mini browser surfing is good but it has very lack of facility like it has no ad blocker no downloading interface like uc browser
    so guys please update your self.

    http://uptown18.blogspot.com/

  • Prashant Umredkar

    turbo feature is absent

    • LamiaLove

      I guess… thank you, captain?

  • Michele Mappa

    I want bookmars bar pleeeeease!

    • Paul Lelyukh

      i’m pretty share the entire front page is all bookmarks

      • Michele Mappa

        Nope, they’re not bookmarks but they’re part of the browsing history, as in chrome.

        • Paul Lelyukh

          Ok maybe they are, but I added like 12 sites onto there so I guess its both click and drag the tabs

      • LamiaLove

        It’s a mix of bookmarks and random websites from the browsing history all being reshuffled automatically just for lolz.

  • Paul Lelyukh

    The circle icons only have nice images if you are on the site home page but most of my circle icons are logins which look really ugly, you guys need a option where you can automatically choose the image for the circle easily like taking snaps of website but in circle form. Add circle snaps!!

  • Paul Lelyukh

    Also you guys need to make the snap tool for website work well with touchscreen because it doesn’t work at all on my lenovo flex 3 laptop,. The reason I wanted to use the touchscreen was because the background was gray and was blurring with the span cursor

  • Mike

    Why it is not support Flash ?

    • Paul Lelyukh

      It’s a concept browser

    • Leonardo Gomes

      It does support Flash.

  • Paul Lelyukh

    The fact that the tabs are on the side as giant circles is awesome, you begin to notice if you open a lot tabs

  • Juan Jose Murillo

    I was wondering if the Opera’s Dev Team would add the grouping bubbles, like grouping tab in other browsers.

  • Phillip Peck

    Question: Where’s the sense in making the bold statement that web browsers need to adopt a radical new paradigm, creating a browser to demonstrate the direction you feel they should go in … and then saying that you’re NOT going to do that, and instead merely maybe adopt one or two of the new ideas into the same old browser framework?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      So people can give feedback on that new paradigm and based on that they can decide what may be interesting to implement in main Opera?

      • Phillip Peck

        The post says they already intended to implement features from it into mainline Opera anyway. If you have a real interest in what your userbase may or may not want, there’s no reason to make those decisions preemptively.

        EDIT: Just to minimize the negative aspects of the position I’m arguing from, I actually love Neon’s design principles, so any deriving from it into Opera proper is appreciated.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Yes, they said they intent to implement Neon features but they didn’t say which one(s). So user feedback will help them deciding what to implement.

  • Great news!

  • Michael Vallance

    I love ‘different’ so I like this browser very much.
    On iMac I see the ‘hand’ image in its background but on my MacBook Pro the browser is transparent so I see the desktop image.
    How do I see the ‘hand’ image on my MacBook Pro Neon browser?
    Thanks.

    • LamiaLove

      You’re not supposed to see the hand. The hand is shown when something wrong happened and Neon could not get your desktop image to use it and create the illusion of transparency.

  • Faisal

    Hi, very good browser. i start using it since 7 days. I have some questions and ideas but it is not clear where I can ask question or add idea.

    for example;
    1- how to check new version for opera neon? im still on version Version 1.0.2459.0 (64-bit).
    2- how i can change the font size?
    3- how i can make right side bar smaller?
    4- I can’t login. i think it is not working now
    5- no flash support? or it is issue in my laptop?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      1) There won’t be any, it’s a concept browser
      2) In settings
      3) You can’t
      4) See the post
      5) Flash works fine here.

  • DigitalEngineer

    Perhaps if Opera want to take this forward there should me a more structured method of receiving user feedback instead of a comments schedule…

  • savvytwh

    I like this browser’s concept. Needs mouse/trackpad gestures. Switch sides with open tab buttons & player, screen shot, gallery and downloads. Ability to choose pic/id for bubble.
    From earlier posts
    “Perfect would be to allow us to position the buttons as we like, if i could have all buttons and tabs on one side – perfect.
    or just hide all the left buttons and only show them with mouse-over. and put the +tab on the right side.”
    “some kind of fullscreen mode where it hides the sidebars and the big address bar so the website is fullscreen inside the window”

  • Mike Leski

    I love the concept and accept it’s early stages. Anyone else has MacBook Pro heating up when using Neon? I manage about 15minutes max before fans go craaaaaazy!

    • Who is John Galt?

      Yeah, my Macbook Air is heating up pretty fast as well when using Neon.

  • Leharcolt Pumukli

    The concept’s fine, but the right sidebar takes up way too much space, and title bar at the top of the page is comically thick for me. All the bars should be much smaller (or user adjustable, I guess).

    Replacing bookmarks with these huge bubbles is extremely childish. They look great where they are, but one should be able to organize them, and I would definitely want to import my bookmarks from other browsers. In its current form you can’t really use this browser if you want to keep a bunch of pages organized and at hand.

  • David Medioni

    ITS AWSOME ! i just wish you had adblockers pre installed like on the classic opera.
    -For the bookmark bubbles : Allow the user to replace them // make bubble folders. ( and maybe “pages” of bubble bookmarks.
    – Left side bar . Pur genius and i expect you to place the plug-ins in that specific space too else it dosn’t make any sense.
    -Right Side bar. maybe a bit too big for my taste but i really like the idea. might as well ad the ” stack” feature.
    -Web page : The Url space is slightly too big in my opinion and it lacks the classic home icons, the split screen is FKING AWSOME !

    Average note : 9/10 i would totally use it instead of any other browser assuming you push an update including an adblock and the plug-ins, and i would love it even more if you added the enhanced bubble bookmark ideas i proposed.

    Great Job people.

    • polz

      David, do you know how to add a adblock extension?

      • David Medioni

        Yes i do. but, but as far as i know, Neon dosn’t support extensions yet.

  • Lasha Chikovani

    hello guys, please make support for some downloader programs (like download master e.t.c)

  • Stephan

    Looks really great, but had to uninstall it after 10-15 mins. Scrool speed while using laptop touchpad is unbearable, could not scroll through bookmarks bubblles whit the touchpad, also, the right side bar is a little too big (would be awesome if you could hide it and show on mouse hover?).
    All in all is a nice concept, and i will definitely check it out again in the future.

  • KALI97

    Hi, I have a promblem ……….
    Don’t loading videos on Plex Media server ( https://www.plex.tv ) on this browser

    • LamiaLove

      Can’t tell if promblem is really promblem or just spam.

      • GravityTicker

        You are the smartass around here aren’t you?

        • LamiaLove

          I take it you support spammers like those.

          • Leonardo Gomes

            Plex is a very well known and used software. I use it myself and never got spam from them.

  • SptWr

    This is perfect ! It needs to get more classic Opera enhancements like ad block built-in but the concept is what a user needs. The links are tabs the tabs are links and windows and tabs and all is in reach fast and simplified . In windows 10 i find the taskbar icon not as good designed as the browser itself. It has flaws like it does not recognize some words and underlines them in red but it is ok. A wonderful idea and if it gets better i am sure it will be unique .

  • Jay Chokshi

    shortcut to switch between tabs?

    • sepehrr

      ctrl + tab (next tab)
      ctrl + tab + shift (previous tab)

    • LamiaLove

      Wait… what?!

  • Jason Awbrey

    I’m absolutely loving Neon! What is the best way to contribute/give feedback?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      Commenting here like you did.

  • Bogdan Gherghel

    I installed Neon a few days ago, it will take some time to get used to the functions (I used Mozilla until now). While it’s a well designed browser and I does seem a little faster, there is a downside: for some reason, I lost all the opened tabs, although it’s set to continue from the last session. It happened twice until now, quite randomly. At least, I can’t figure out why sometimes it keeps the tabs and sometimes not. Please look into it, it would make a great browser otherwise.

  • nanana1

    Found a way to install Opera Neon in a forced “portable” mode by coping the program files found in C:UsersXXXAppDataLocalOpera SoftwareOpera Neon to your preferred folder, eg. “X:XXXOpera Neon” and creating a “neon.exe” shortcut and applying the command line :

    –user-data-dir=”X:XXXOpera NeonUser DataDefault”

    and each time Opera Neon is started, it will read from and write to the “X:XXXOpera NeonUser DataDefault” folder remembering your preferences.

  • sepehrr

    neon is really nice but i miss plugins like ad-block.

  • Giulio Capolino

    Big big bug when you open full-screen and type a url. You become incapable of doing anything but seeing the page you’re on. Once that is fixed I might use it as my default – it looks real nice!

    • LamiaLove

      What are you trying to do that doesn’t work?

      • Giulio Capolino

        What I’m experiencing on a Mac is that once you enter the full screen mode, all the tabs disappear and you’re left with only the page you’re looking at, incapable of typing another URL or switching page on the top right. You have to exit full screen and all those tabs come back.

        • LamiaLove

          You can use Ctrl+Tab to switch tabs and Ctrl+T to create new tabs.
          Since you are on Mac you probably don’t have Ctrl, but flowery squiggly retarded symbols. Try the combinations with one of the retarded symbols instead of Ctrl.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          This is how full screen works, isn’t it?

  • great!

  • pee

    splitscreen is perfect! split screen is really needed in opera!!!!!!!!!!!!
    snap is very nice, needs option to copy to clipboard, and save to a custom folder
    neon uses too much valuable screen estate, especially for smaller laptops

  • IgorT75

  • Felipe Peloggia

    I love it, although there’s one BIG flaw in it… I installed it on my laptop, and after a few minutes put it as my default browser… When I got to my desktop and installed it, however, I found out there’s simply no way to sync the Opera Neon’s info with my laptop’s… That really fucked it up for me, since I’m not going through the process of typing every goddamn password on every goddamn website, with authentication processes and all… PLEEEASE make a turn around it! Opera Neon is AWESOME!

  • Macguy007

    Great concept however I’d have a couple of ideas.
    (1) I’m using an image ’tiled’ as my wallpaper so it looks awful when blew up to full screen as background for the browser window so a quick capture of the desktop or (even better) an actual transparency effect with the right amount of blur would be the best.
    (2) It’s more of a bug report but when I try to use the ‘Crop to Snap’ option it grays out the whole webpage instead darken effect so I can’t see anything. Tested it on two different Macs with same results. On a windows PC running Win7 it works as intended. (for full disclosure both Macs have ‘f.lux” installed. I don’t know if that could have an impact)

    Edit: I’ve tried to disable F.lux and tested the ‘Crop to Snap’ and no luck.

  • SptWr

    i hope it updates by itself and doesn’t need to download new copies every time.

    • nanana1

      This is just a fun browser project teaser not under further development and there is unlikely any further updates for now.

      • Thara Zhang

        This browser works better than my Opera Browser. When I click a page on face book it takes me there. On regular opera it opens the window and never loads. The neon HAS to be continued as a full replacement next generation of Opera. Also needs to allow my bookmarks to import from Browsers that people use. Not Internet Explorer. Come on, this is the 20th century? Even Windows doesn’t use IE anymore.

        • LamiaLove

          Maybe some extension is preventing Opera to function properly. Try disabling all extensions and see if it fixes your problem.

          • Thara Zhang

            easier to just not use it.

          • LamiaLove

            It’s even easier to not load your browser with crap.
            If you could load extensions in Neon there’s a high chance you would load it with the same crap and have the same problem.
            Again, I am working under the assumption that your problems might be caused by some extensions or plugins or whatever crap people put in their browers.

  • Thara Zhang

    Neon is great. Could be my “regular Opera” killer. Seriously needs more development but I’m liking it better already.

  • Mincă Daniel Andrei

    By the looks of it, It’s a breathtaking experience 😀

    When will you ship Opera Neon to UNIX Systems ? 🙂

    • LamiaLove

      Unix? You have got to be kidding.

      • Why so ‘osist’ ? It will come to UNIX one day, even if you want it or not, I was asking WHEN 😀

        • LamiaLove

          Well, if you really want to know WHEN, the answer can only be NEVER.

          • Never for you? Too bad, you’ll miss all the fun stuff 🙁

          • LamiaLove

            Wait, by UNIX, do you actually mean Unix-like?

          • No man, UNIX as in Linux systems: Debian, Alpine, RedHat etc.

          • LamiaLove

            Ah, I thought you meant actual UNIX.

  • I think this could be a truly great browser, but it’s too “barebones” at the moment. I’ve trialled it for a few days, both Windows and Mac versions and I like the way it works. However, I find the lack of customisation of the dials or “bubbles”frustrating, I can’t quickly see which website dial I want on the homepage. With more improvements, I would consider reinstalling it.

  • Sebastian Noir

    I’m using it as my default browser already and I’m in love with it, the design is so different, fresh and beautiful, it’s light and faster than other browsers out there. I wish you could add an bookmark manager / button in the left panel and an ad-block.

  • polz

    Does anyone know how I can add an Adblock extension?

    • LamiaLove

      You cannot at the moment and they insinuated this will most probably not change.

  • Vitor Signoretti

    Is there any extension available for it? They are really useful for me, Or maybe in the next updates we can find something similar to chrome extensions.

    • LamiaLove

      No extensions are available for now, probably not ever.

  • Albert Smith

    I have viewed the feature of the new opera Neon the concept browser. The features are very versatile and better than the previous Opera models. I will definitely upgrade my opera browser to the new Neon browser and use it to access online writing services such as Essay Re-Writing Service being offered by qualified and experienced writers and editors.

  • Fabian Statham

    This Browser looks so nice, i want to use it, but i cant import my bookmarks …. :S

    • LamiaLove

      Import your bookmarks in IE or Firefox then import them from there. But I wouldn’t recommend using bookmarks in Neon. It only has the home page bubbles and those move around on their own, making it hard to find something specific among them if there’s more than a few of them.

  • CK

    Guys, how can I know if the browser is up to date? Is there some way to know if it is up to date?

    • nanana1

      If your Opera Neon browser is build 1.0.2459 it is up to date and there will be unlikely any further updates for now.

      • CK

        It is this version, thanks. Why will it not have updates for now?

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Because it’s a concept browser, it was only released to show a concept, an idea.

          • CK

            But, if people like it, why not release new versions and make it a real world browser?

          • Leonardo Gomes

            The answer is in the post: depending on the feedback, they may add some of those concepts in regular Opera.

  • codrin sava

    Best browser experience by far. And by best I mean intuitive UI, engaging visually, really fast (compared to my Chrome). It stands in a class of its own, and it’s, frankly, disheartening to hear that it is just a concept. I am sync and extension capability away from uninstalling Chrome. So, fingers crossed they’ll add that, and if they still want to call it experimental, I’m fine with that.
    It is already my default browser, and will probably be for the foreseeable future.

  • Ben Hur Nascimento

    I’ve already changed my standard browser and I use Neon, which is marvelous.
    Add a smooth scroll up/down and more personalization and you got it.

  • AleksOD

    This is fantastic! This may very well be the future of Opera. Now, if only there was a way to have extensions, too… 😉

  • Hostage1973

    This looks interesting and I would love to make the switch but the browser comes up with my desktop photo upside down with no way to change that! A minor thing but I have spent time trying to find this relatively simple setting in the browser and as far as I can tell it does not exist, which gives me pause in considering using it for any application more serious than just “checking it out”, in case I run into an actual issue and then find out I don’t have the proper tools to address that either, under the guise of simplicity…. Let me know if I am missing something here.

    • LamiaLove

      It shouldn’t do that. It’s a bug.

  • Faheem Ahmed

    just wanted something like this!!! worth waiting!

  • Jodilson Moreira

    Hi. Is there a way to user neon with multiples users like chrome?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      You can do it by creating multiple OS accounts/users.

      • LamiaLove

        That has to be a joke.

        • Leonardo Gomes

          Nope, it’s not. It’s the correct way to have multiple people using the same program.

          • LamiaLove

            Wait… people use different profiles in Chrome to let different people use the same program?
            I thought it was different profiles of the same user used for different things like work/play/serial killer/etc.

    • LamiaLove

      No.

    • nanana1

      Not sure about using with multiple users like Chrome, but you can install individually for each Current User in Windows (?).

      Alternatively, you can all share the same program files but create different User Data using the forced portable method described here :

  • Its just amazing to see the Opera Neon browser, all the features are very impressive-
    1. A new start tab
    2. Video Pop-out
    3. A sidebar with its own image gallery, video player etc.
    4. Split screen mod
    5. Snap-to-gallery
    and other features, I just love it.

  • sbiddo

    I like your browser but the problem is that it’s not been opening anymore for some reasons.
    When i double click it i see the first screen for a second, or so, and then it crashes.
    I tried to reinstall it, it works the first time and then it crashes again.
    Why is that? Can anyone help?

    • Przemek Kudła

      It looks like a broken profile.
      You can remove it – but bear in mind that you will loose bookmarks, Speed Dial tiles, etc. The location of the profil can be found in opera:about “Paths Profile”
      Try to use sync to save your data: Opera menu -> Synchronize

      • sbiddo

        the problem is that i cant even open Neon.
        how do i get to those menus?

        • Przemek Kudła

          Ah… sorry, I though about Opera, not Neon. Anyway, the neon profile should be located in C:Users[user name]AppDataLocalOpera SoftwareOpera NeonUser Data. Remove it and check if Neon gets back to normal.

          • sbiddo

            Ok, now it looks like it started again but, as i thought, i lost all my browsing history and stored passwords.
            Do you know why it happened and how i can avoid it in the future?
            Thanks a lot!

          • Przemek Kudła

            I have no idea, Neon is a kind of experimental software, bugs are expected.

  • drm2g

    Love it! Please continue supporting development and add extensions!

  • Frank Mueller

    This browser is incredible. Very light, very quick, innovative features, love the split screen mode. This browser has become my daily driver and I’m really loving it. If there is further development, a way to rename tabs/favorites would be incredibly helpful. Also, a way to change the default search engine to one I added would be great to (or show DuckDuckGo some love) Of course, Opera’s built-in ad blocker would be nice too 🙂

    • LamiaLove

      1. What are the innovative features that you like?
      2. You can change the default search engine. It’s in the settings, where you edit the search engines.

      • Frank Mueller

        I like the side-by-side viewing. I like the preview instead of the tabs. I like the adoption of the desktop wallpaper into the browser. I like the favorites layout, it’s more creative. I like how light it is on memory usage, even with multiple tabs. I like the utilization of widescreen rather than trying to cram everything in the top. I like how clean the menus are while also having some style.
        Regarding changing the default search engine, I found both the way to add a search engine and how to change the default. Sadly, it will not allow me to set the search engine I added (DuckDuckGo) as default.

        • Agreed!
          I also use DuckDuckGo and added it to Neon by following these steps:
          If you go under settings > Search you can add a search engine.
          Add this to the first box: duckduckgo.com
          Add this to the second box: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s&atb=v50-7_c

          edit: Oh, and you have to hover on the newly added thing and click the blue button.

          • Frank Mueller

            Sabrenn, Thank you! You are a genius. I found I could just cut the url after the %s and it works too. Thanks again!

        • LamiaLove

          That is really weird. I can set DDG as default without any problem.
          The side-by-side viewing, the tab previews and the side tabs are not innovative. They are really old. Old Opera had them and now Vivaldi (vivaldi.com) has had them for some time.

  • Jaredcheeda

    Things I like:
    1. Doesn’t have any of the stupid “Log in to your browser” crap. This instantly makes it superior to Chrome and Opera.
    2. Very Smooth
    3. I like the general direction this is headed in

    Things I DON’T like:
    1. Bubbles need to be able to be customized to have a better thumbnails, because things I would normally pin look so ugly I won’t even bother. Not good if you want this to be my default.
    2. When you are on the All Bubbles view you need to be able to drag and arrange them to pin them to specific locations, or at the very least swap two bubbles locations.
    3. I’m never a fan of mystery meat navigation (in the left sidebar).
    4. BUG: I was unable to scrollwheel up and down on the homepage of YouTube. Middle-Click + Drag didn’t work. The only way to scroll was to drag the bar, click on the up/down arrows or the track wouldn’t work. After closing/reopening I was unable to reproduce this (on Windows 7 version).

    What I want to see:
    1. It needs more unique things, and to work on correcting the things Chrome is doing poorly, like the Downloads tab.
    2. Screenshots aren’t impressive… Screen sharing is impressive.
    3. Have “Send Do Not Track” turned on by default.
    4. In the hamburger menu, between the – and + is a 150%. I cannot fathom how no browser other than Firefox has figured out that when you double-click on the 150%, that it should reset to 100%. It’s so obvious. Do that.

    What I DO NOT want to see:
    1. Never add the “log in to your browser” crap. If you are going to do that, then I might as well just use stupid chrome (which is why I dumped Opera from my default browser the last time). I don’t want “accounts” in my browser, and for god sake I don’t want an annoying icon in the top corner showing who is logged in. NO ONE IS LOGGED IN.
    2. DO NOT implement the crappy new settings menu that is in Chrome Canary. You can design something better. Do it, or keep what you have now.

      What do you mean by mistery meat in the left sidebar?
      Also, why can’t you just not log into your browser? It would just be one other functionality that you don’t use. What’s the big deal?

      • Jaredcheeda

        Google “Mystery Meat Navigation” there’s a wikipedia article about it. It’s navigation that does not reveal what it does until you hover or click on it.

        Reasons why “logging into your browser” are bullshit:

        1. There is usually some stupid UI thing that you cannot remove in the corner of the screen somewhere to make it VERY OBVIOUS who’s account you are using. I cannot fucking stand this and there is no way to get rid of it in Chrome/Opera.
        2. It creates a separate appdata folder and profile for each user, so sometimes when the browser crashes it deletes all your bookmarks, and other settings. Worthless.
        3. No one else will ever be on any of my computers, I have no use for this and never will. If someone needs to touch my computer, I put them in incognito mode so they don’t mess anything up. I don’t need them *logging in* to **my** browser and storing all their passwords and crap on my machine.
        4. Everything about this idea just screams invasion of privacy and trying to monetize users habits. How is there no ‘opt-out’ option for this crap.

        Firefox at least has the dignity to hide it’s shame deep in the settings section and not bother people with it. It’s almost as if they have a shred of respect for their users.

        • LamiaLove

          I disagree with your mystery meat claim about Neon’s side bar. That’s why I couldn’t understand what exactly you meant.
          Mystery meat was what gmail did for a while when buttons on new message windows and whatnot were not visible until you hovered the mouse over them.
          Neon has some icons which you will easily associate with their function if you use the browser a couple of times.

          About logging into your browser, you gave me reasons why it’s bullshit. I agree with all your reasons, but that’s not what I asked.
          I asked why don’t you just NOT log into your browser and ignore the feature altogether. Why so much hate for a feature that you don’t use anyway?

  • Harry Alexander

    Is there any unlimited VPN built on it?

    • Leonardo Gomes

      The post answers it.

  • David_Gould

    Address bar is too tall. Other than that, looks good.

    Can’t see the function of the space above the address bar, probably should get rid of that.

    ‘Tabs’ seem to take up too much space — I currently have 207 tabs “open”. I do like the idea of highlighting most commonly used ones.

    No option as to where to install Neon. This is a problem with Opera Blink too.

    Still playing.

  • Game Account

    Hello,
    Nice browser

    The sites i pin to the speed dial as bubbles are wiped out when the history is cleared. The pins should be independent of the ‘clear history’ process.

    Also, somehow split scree not working – are there any demo videos – i may be doing something wrong in this case.

  • Netwalker-1

    Beautiful browser… fast & cool. Go on with the concept. I love it.

  • cool.

  • Mark Nohner

    Really like the way it sits on desktop but not importing my Chrome settings is keeping me from using it much….

  • mattlacey

    Have been using this as the main browser on my PC for a couple of weeks now, very much enjoying it.

    Few minor issues:
    * No short cut keys?
    * Video window should remember size & position. Super handy though, love it!
    * Ability to rename tabs would be handy, I have 3 google accounts and all get truncated at the same point so I can’t distinguish
    * Often get a handled exception when entering form data. Usually hitting back/refresh fixes it and haven’t actually lost entered info

    Keep it up!

    • LamiaLove

      There are shortcut keys, but you cannot change them.

  • Mike

    I like the look and feel so far. Maybe the “new tab” symbol should be on the top right, but that the only other thing I could add to this forum since I see that others have viewed most of the other things I would point out. People are becoming increasing aware of infringements on their privacy, so they are looking for “secure and private” wherever they can.
    As I said though, I like the direction, and I’m anticipating the full launch,……”is it here yet?” hahaha

    • LamiaLove

      The new tab button on the left side bar is a lie. It doesn’t actually create a new tab. What it does is minimize all tabs and show the home page.
      You can do the same thing by clicking the minimize button on the current tab or by clicking the current tab in the right side bar.
      Both actions will minimize the current tab and show the home page. Both are equivalent to clicking the new tab button on the left side bar.

    Really enjoying using Neon – feels really fast and fresh. After a couple of weeks of use, my suggestions:
    – The tab “bubbles” are difficult to read so its time consuming to find a tab you want to come back to. I’m not sure there is an easy solution to this, but a quick way of previewing the page better when you hover the mouse over the tabs might work.
    – Would be nice to have some floating window option – some of us use multiple monitors 🙂
    – I quite often just want to close a tab quickly – a simple X next to minimise would be great – at the moment I have to click a very small x on the tab bubble. Thats involves a lot of eye scanning around the screen which is a bit tiresome.
    – Would love support for extensions oh yes and maybe god forbid Flash (as seems a lot of video posted on FB requires it) – actually scrap that lets keep things future and fresh. 🙂

    güzel….. ama adres çubuğu çok büyük olmuş…sayfa kapatma tuşu gelsin…. sayfalar yavaş yükleniyor gibi… chrome içe aktarım yok…sık kullanılanları hareket ettiremiyoruz ,açık sekmeler çok büyük ekran kaplıyor .. fare oraya yaklaşınca baloncuk şeklinde çıksa daha güzel olur..şimdilik bu kadar tükçe öğrenin biraz 🙂

  • OWALKERLEO

    you should put a way to personalize the background, and create folders to the favorites

  • oldfart1

    I had a look at the video for neo it looked good but the sound was bad the lady talking was to soft , so one turns the sound up and next the stupid music blows you out of the room so you rush to turn the sound down again and then she starts to talk again and you miss what is said, it is sad that they cannot get a presentation right, thank goodness I didn’t just close the whole web page as it would have been a shame to miss out on a nice looking program because of a bad presentation, something they should have a second look at to spare others of noise shock.
    regards

  • SlimMan

    I like it, a lot. I think you should continue building on it. Don’t get over heavy in features, but add some of the more dominate that are missing, like Favs. and yes Extensions are prob. a must for most users.

    Good work, Thanks!

  • Krzysztof Sęktas

    Thank you for this browser people, this is impressive. Use a lot!

  • ანანია

    Its a great browser, i enjoyed using it a lot, its most comfortable and practical browser.

    1. There is too much space for tabs. it would be great if we can resize it.
    2. I think it would be more comfortable, if u add close button near to minimize one.
    3. No adblock. its a problem.
    4. It would be nice if tabs on player list will be disepear from right side of speed dial.

  • tpv

    Wao me encanta Opera por estas cosas.

  • Spor yaparken telefonunuzdan müzik dinlemek için http://tubidymobi.djstationlife.com adresinden faydalanabilirsin.
    Örneğin en çok dinlenen türkçe pop şarkılar listesi kulaklığını takıp bol eğlenceli yürüyüş yapabilirsiniz.Tabiki bununla sınırlı değil yabancı şarkılar listesine de göz atıp istediğin müziği dinliyebilir ve indirebilirsin.

  • onewox

    you should make the selected tab a little more obvious, The simple outline keeps it distracting and hard to find. Maybe use the opera neon green colour with a think outline of the circle. Also I’ve cases where the X to close wouldn’t show up

    Opera is part of the Western classical music tradition.It started in Italy at the end of the 16th century (with Jacopo Peri’s mostly lost Dafne, produced in Florence in 1598) and soon spread through the rest of Europe.

    • LamiaLove

      It should work by default. What website does it not work on?
      Anyway, there are settings in Settings->Content Settings->Plugins and here: chrome://plugins/

  • 2b

    – downloadmanager should be simple and just do the job (if I want more, I will get a specialized program that can always do a lot more).
    – image galleries – A browser cannot compete with the size of image galleries in Windows and not with image managers like acdsee.
    – If ONE of the Tab Options (next to smart cycling) will make frequently used tabs float to the top, that’s not bad. Tab OPTIONS is always good.
    – Video pop-out, the same, not bad as an option.
    – cool effects and animations, no need, unless these are functional and can be disabled.
    – before you start wasting time on a snapshot of any page, have a look at faststone capture. It has everything, including capturing your browser at work, a floating task bar that can dock on edge of the screen.
    – ‘A new start page that uses your desktop wallpaper as its background’. I am against anything that looks like an overtake of the user’s desktop. Microsoft failed with that already. Why would I want to see my desktop background in the browser? It is not meant to be in my browser. But a selected background image, why not. A native ad-blocker (enable-disable) and the ability to add extensions make good sense too.
    – Good luck.

  • Furkan Kose

    i really like it but bookmarks tab have to improve.

  • Lee Benjamin

    How does the top bar (with the close, minimize, expand buttons) go transparent?

    • LamiaLove

      What do you mean? What OS are you using? On Windows the title bar (the one with the buttons) depends on the system theme. On Macs the bar with the buttons cannot be changed. In the video it had a different color and made it look transparent if you didn’t pay attention. It was probably a different build than the one they released to the public.

  • opera add ons are not suitable for neon . please add all apps for Neon . I love this neon

  • It’s a gorgeous, stylish browser, but I can’t make it my default without an AdBlocker.
    Would also like a favorites button or better bookmark integration.

  • wombatmustdie

    Most annoying browser crap ever! Just deleted it. Never ever going to use it again. Waste of time.

    • LamiaLove

      What made you hate it so badly?

  • per

    I have some advices for Neon: 1. import bookmarkers fron chrome or firefox. 2. We need extension just like the chrome, because maybe i need Vimium and other useful extensions. 3. I cant login with my Opera account on my Mac

  • balcock

    Requests:
    1. Made the + easier to use – if you mouse isn’t exactly on it, it doesn’t work
    2. SharePoint sites keep getting “This site can’t be reached” errors.
    3. It would be nice to group favorites.
    4. How about a Help button somewhere?
    5. There is a split screen view – how about more than 2 screens?
    I wouldn’t be writing this if I didn’t like the product – thanks!

  • Captain Price

    Please, these bars at the side “eats” space from web pages. Try some “auto-hide” feature, cause thery are kind of annoying me since the pages got “smaller” since they use some space. Also, the default Windows title bar doesn’t fit the broser design, seems like i’m using some kind of 2009 program.
    And for the least, the “Bubbles” system looks confusing, i almost always get lost without now wich one is my actual tab.
    Sorry for bad english, i’m not a native speaker.

  • Bogdan Gherghel

    the bug persists.
    although I set it to continue from last time, it randomly “forgets” about the tabs left open. makes no difference if I close the browser or I just shut down the computer, it’s always a guess if my tabs will still be there. no other browser that I know of has this problem, so, despite the design and ergonomics, it’s rather useless because of this.

  • Une patate islandaise

    Tried it, loved it. Now I know this is one of the first versions, but here’s my feedback :

    Download manager : when I wanted to download your archive in this article containing the wallpapers, I only realized I download the archive 3 times after looking at the download manager. I thought this was a bug. What I mean, is that you should make more explicit the fact that the download has started in the download manager.

    Player : the player works nice and all, it even displays how far you are in the video. Although it’s really practical for music, it’d be good to have the pop-out option like on Opera for actual videos, films, and live streams.

    Bookmarks : where are they ? I know we can organize stuff on the “New tab” page, but I didn’t find any boorkmark-related option. Or maybe you could let the user create folders on this “New tab” page, so that they can organize it like their smartphone’s home-screen.

    It would also be nice to be able to create a new window with the selected tab. In the actual Opera, you just click on the tab and drag it outside the window. Why not have this feature in Neon ?

    There are many things from Opera that you can implement : VPN, the adblocker, the extensions system … But mainly the *Opera Account synchronization*. It’s just so handy to have my bookmarks, settings and history synced on every device.

    The browser is really stylish and beautiful. The only thing I’d change about its look it the window bar, that doesn’t fit Neon’s style IMHO.
    To end this, really good work, I’m looking forward to see what you’ll do with Opera Neon !

    • mattlacey

      Tha player does pop out, if you hover over the little circle in the player bar a pop-out icon appears. Best feature in here IMO!

      • Une patate islandaise

        Ah, found it ! Thanks 🙂 I thought you could pop-out the video directly from its page, like on Opera. It’d cool to do that too !

  • TonyZenSmith

    It’s a piece of shit – why has it been released so early. There are no extensions for it and i’ve wasted 3 days investing myself into it. You didn’t need comments and suggestions, you know what is lacking. You’ve wasted a lot of people’s time. Big let down Opera.

    • Kay Payne

      no you are a piece of shit

    What does the little icon to the right of the address text mean/do? The icon that looks like two pages stacked on top of each other and a little offset from each other. When I click it, the top page gets a check mark in it.

    Help?

    Thank you.

    PS: I’m digging this browser.

    Hi Dear Opera Family, primarily thanks for this browser. I’m using two week Opera Neon From Windows 10 and Mac-OS X. I love this new concept.I will point out a few minor problems that I experience in use; 1- Whatsapp Web Conversation Tab Crash problem.I often enter the term any text area after crash active tab. Good Luck.

  • Yassine Naitaissi

    it will be great iw there is a button to save links of favorites pages

      If you minimize your page, you can drag open tabs/bubbles onto the main central screen to pin them.

      • Yassine Naitaissi

        that’s awesome, thank you 🙂
