What's New in version 69.0.3686.36:

  • We are very happy to announce that Opera has become the first major browser to integrate Twitter, which is now available in the sidebar. In the newest version 69 of the Opera browser for desktop, all the Twitter fans among you can get the best possible experience on your desktop computers.
  • Opera specializes in providing unique features not typically found in other major browsers and comes with a built-in ad blocker and tracker blocker, free browser VPN, Crypto Wallet, and integrated social media messengers.
  • The new Twitter feature follows shortly after we launched built-in Instagram support and reached a record number of users in March 2020.

A better Twitter experience:

  • According to a survey we conducted ahead of the launch, 62&'37; of Twitter users in the US wish for the social media platform to be easier to use on their desktop computers.
  • Twitter users think it should be easier to access Twitter on their PCs and we agree: we have now tweaked Opera to make it the perfect browser for them.
  • Thirty-nine percent of the Twitter users who participated in our survey check the platform several times a day. Using the new Twitter feature directly in Opera makes it more convenient for you to scroll through your feed or search Twitter.
  • The use of a keyboard and a large display makes tweeting or sending direct messages more convenient. Using Twitter directly in the browser's sidebar is also more convenient than picking up your smartphone or opening a special client app on your PC, especially when it's breaking news you want to follow. The sidebar integration makes it easier to find Twitter whenever it's needed.
  • In simple terms: Whether it's a Throwback Thursday or a #Caturday, no one likes to waste time looking for the tab where they last opened Twitter.
  • Having Twitter built into Opera gives you quick access to your main feed, the search function, as well as direct messages, allowing you to respond to unfolding events more quickly.
  • To enable Twitter in the Opera browser, you simply have to click the three-dot icon at the bottom of the sidebar and tick Twitter in the Messengers section. With the Twitter icon now in your sidebar, you can log into a Twitter account and you're all set: you can use Twitter directly from your browser.
  • All your social media services integrated in your browser:
  • With today's Twitter integration, Opera is proving once again that it's the best browser for social media. We have already introduced built-in support for Instagram, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and VKontakte in previous releases. After choosing the social media of your choice, it remains always at hand directly in your sidebar.

Twitter Survey results:

  • Opera's Twitter survey (conducted via Pollfish) gathered responses from 1,000 American internet users concerning how they use Twitter and what their interests are. The respondents were mostly interested in using the platform to find out about breaking news (44&'37;), to keep up with news in general (49'), to pass time (44') and to see what people are talking about while watching TV, sports or live events (26').
  • As far as popular hashtags go, #Staysafe was known to 53' of people, followed by #HumpDay (51'), #tbt (36'), #FoodieFriday (35') and #MondayMotivation (31').

A new weather widget:

  • The newest version of Opera also includes a new weather widget on the start page. It welcomes you with Opera's hometown of Oslo but once you set it to your location, it keeps you informed about the weather wherever you're located.

Improved visual tab cycler:

  • Remember our visual tab cycler (Ctrl+Tab)? We have now improved it by making more tabs visible and making the tiles larger.
  • Improvements to Workspaces
  • We just wouldn't be ourselves if we didn't continue tweaking our most recently added features. Workspaces, a tool which allows you to group tabs according to the context you use them in, is no exception.
  • With Opera 69 we have added an option to the context menu which allows you to open a link in one of your Workspaces. And once you do open a link in a different Workspace, or move a webpage between Workspaces, you now get a notification dot on the Workspace that you have moved it to.
  • If you're a MacOS user, the Window menu will now also display a list of your Workspaces.
  • That's it for now. We hope you enjoy our new release – feel free to Tweet about it.

Improved private mode:

  • The first thing you'll notice when you open a private window in Opera 63, is information about the way it works.

However, we would also like you to be aware that some data from private browsing (like new bookmarks you create) will still be visible in normal mode.

Saving Bookmarks:

  • Based on your requests, a default location for saving bookmarks will be the Bookmarks Bar instead of the Other Bookmarks folder. You can still choose a different location yourself in the bookmarks popup when saving. Later, you can edit the bookmarks bar in bookmarks manager as well.

What's New in version 62.0.3331.18:

  • With the newest release of Opera 62, we have some interesting design updates on top of the changes we introduced in Reborn 3. We'd also like to show you a feature that will help you plan your holidays more easily.

Design updates including improved Dark Mode and support for Windows dark theme:

  • Ever since the launch of Reborn 3 in April, we've been hard at work improving our dark theme to make it available throughout the browser. Opera also supports the Windows dark theme. This means you can make Opera darker: we've made the authentication dialogs, context menus and bookmarks editing dark. The checkmark icon will now also change colors when hovered. We've also changed the color of alert texts to a new shade of red.
  • With this release, we also thought about those of you who use large HD displays. To make the use of the Speed Dial easier, we have introduced a function in the EasySetup panel that lets you make the tiles larger.

Task completer - Plan your travels with ease:

  • Getting back to the things you find on the Web is not always easy. Where was it? Did someone send me that link? Did I see that website while searching for something else? Where did I save it? We know the pain.
  • With this release, we are creating the option to connect your browser's history to your Speed Dial so that you can more easily return to and finish the tasks you've started. This should happen seamlessly - without the need for you to dig through your history or locate the tab you started with. This is a concept we first thought of on the Neon project, and now we are introducing the first experimental version of it into our main Opera browser.
  • We wanted to experiment with Task Completer in a context where retrieving previous search results is most important, such as travel. When we look for flights and book hotels we don't always make instant decisions. Oftentimes, we want to go back to a specific hotel and show it to friends or loved ones traveling with us before we book. That is why, in this first experimental release of the Task Completer, we are helping you get back to the hotels that you searched for on booking.com. We will present them to you locally, on Opera's Speed Dial. This is done fully client-side, without any network look-up, and will only appear for active booking.com users who have looked into at least 3 different hotels. You can use the preview feature immediately or hide it for later.
  • This feature has already helped relieve the chaos while planning our holidays and we hope you will find it as useful as we do.

What's New in version 58.0.3135.90:

  • DNA-74748 Add switch to turn off adding startpage to sessions

What's New in version 58.0.3135.47:

  • There are two new features in this build. Opera 58 will warn you before closing an Opera window with multiple tabs open. This means it will prevent you from accidentally losing the data you might have typed in when filling out forms or writing comments, or in situations where you lose all your tabs due to a 'slip of the mouse.' The confirmation dialog we added serves as a warning. If you don't wish to see this dialog again, simply tick the checkbox titled 'Do not show this warning again.' The warning dialog won't be shown when closing private windows. To turn the warning back on, go to Settings > Advanced > User interface.
  • Further rollout of different news delivery mechanism in Russia With this build, we continue to roll out an updated news delivery mechanism to our Russian users. We have now integrated Yandex Zen, a smart, personal news recommendation service, into our start page, replacing our previous mechanism.. We have introduced it to provide our users in Russia with a better access to more personalized news. What this means for them is that they will get better news, chosen based on their preferences and browsing history. Yandex Zen uses machine-learning technology and automatically adjusts to your news preferences. Yandex Zen has been switched on only in Russia. We hope you enjoy Opera 58!
