Opera 75 opens up to custom keyboard shortcuts
Browse faster: We use way less processing capacity than other browsers and have a built-in ad blocker that helps load webpages faster.
Opera’s popular shortcuts start page has been refreshed to make exploring web content easier and smarter. Speed Dial shortcuts can now be gathered in folders and easily filtered. Drag and drop one Speed Dial entry on top of another to create a folder, or use the new Speed Dial search field to experience the power of visual Speed Dial entries combined with the flexibility and organization of a classic bookmark folder.
Get hot, new content, with no browsing necessary. The new Discover feature allows you to lean back and get fed with new articles from your country, or whatever region you want to get inspiration from, right in your browser – all in one place. Pick and choose your category: news, food, technology or something else you are more interested in. Opera brings you a selection of relevant global and regional sources to discover web content more easily.
Imagine that, after hours of shopping at your mall for new shoes, you find a single shelf with all the pairs you have tried on so far, so you can sit down, compare, and pick the winner. That’s what Opera’s new Stash feature does for you with websites. Simply hit the heart icon in the address bar to collect the websites you want to compare easily while shopping, or to keep your travel research on hotels, sights and flights at your fingertips. Scan your Stash by resizable page preview, or search what you’ve saved, with keywords.
Now, you can search directly from the new combined address and search bar. Simply start typing a webpage address to go directly to your favorite site, or enter a search term and choose one of several search engines to look for suggested websites.
Rest your eyes on the new, refined user interface. It is modern, sleek, deeply integrated with the platform and built from the ground up. Browse more easily with new elegant icons, tab bar and more.
Opera for desktop has not only been redesigned; it’s also completely re-engineered under the hood. With the Chromium engine, users get a standards-compliant and high-performance browser. Opera’s Off-Road mode, previously called Opera Turbo, now supports SPDY protocol and enables loading webpages faster, even in the toughest of network conditions.
Tab Snoozing to save memory
Tab Snoozing has been added to Opera 74, and is enabled by default. This means that tabs you are not actively using will pause so as not to use up your computer’s memory. Each tab will become active again when you return to it. This feature can be turned off in Settings> User Interface.
Easy Files presents more files
The Easy Files feature lets you attach files without digging through folders. When attaching a file to an email or anywhere online, the Easy Files popup will display your most recently downloaded files. The visual display of files makes it quick and easy to see and click exactly what you want.
Previously, Easy Files would display your three most recent files, but with this update you can now see all of your downloaded files. Just use the scroll buttons to cycle through them.
Easy Files feedback
Since we first added the Easy Files feature to our browser, you have sent us a lot of useful suggestions via email and on Opera forums. So to help improve this feature further, we’ve added a feedback popup to Easy Files.
Just click the little smiley face when using Easy Files. In the popup, you’ll be able to rate the feature as well as leave any comments or suggestions you have. We appreciate the feedback, which helps us improve our products for you.
Search Tabs is more organized
Search Tabs is a list of your tabs, both open and recently-closed. It helps you find a specific tab by typing keywords. Click the magnifying glass icon in the top right, or press Ctrl+Space, then start typing a keyword to identify the tab. The list updates and narrows down your options as you type.
The Opera 75 update lets you set your own keyboard shortcuts for features like Flow, which connects your computer browser with Opera on iOS and Android. This connection is an end-to-end encrypted chat between all your devices for sending notes, images, links, files – all the things you don’t want to miss. You can also now create shortcuts to Opera’s built-in Crypto Wallet, as well as the Player feature – a gateway to all your favorites on Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube Music.
