If you prefer stability over features and always upgrade to stable builds only then here’s a nice treat for you: a final release of Opera 30, with many new features and improvements.

So what exactly should you try?

- A tab cycler, which allows you to quickly switch between different tabs (can be triggered by clicking a downward arrow at the top right corner).

- Sidebar extensions. Despite the fact that Windows 8 pretty much failed utilizing apps as “sidebar” helpers” (we are talking about the snap view), especially when it was a fixed size solution only, it looks like Opera has borrowed the idea and is trying to make it useful.

Google And Opera Renews The Search Agreement

Google And Opera Renews The Search AgreementIt looks like Google is not prepared to repeat the mistake they made by not extending the deal with Mozilla to (again) become their default search provider. In a recently announced move, Opera Software and search giant have come to an agreement and will be extending their partnership where Google continue to be Opera’s default search engine on both desktop and mobile platforms.

Last time companies have signed a deal back in 2012 with the current agreement set to expire within 2.5 years (at the end of 2017).

Opera Mini Introduces The Night Reading Mode

By | May 19, 2015 | 0 Comments

Opera Mini Introduces The Night Reading ModeWhile both OS and phone hardware providers do their best to reduce the eye strain when it comes to unavoidable night reading, not all of them succeed. And as you might know, eye strain is really one of the more uncomfortable things one can experience, especially when you use eyes for pretty much everything.

Well, it looks like at least Opera Mini users will get a pleasant surprise as today’s update includes a night reading mode, which works like this: instead of just reducing the overall screen brightness (which you can adjust via Opera Mini), user may also check the “reduce eye strain” box, which will change your screen light tone from blueish to a warm orange, which is said to be better for your eyes.

In addition to that, Opera Mini will now also sync your opened tabs and speed dial data so a pretty awesome update, if you ask us, which you should grab right now!
