    If you would like to use latest Opera build with no dots and possibility to hide menu bar, this is the latest one:

    I have the menu bar button. And I am using the beta 3 build.

      But can you turn it off like in previous builds?

        Turning off completely the access to the menu bar isn’t safe to end-users, they can simply never found the menu again!
        I know people who would do that and never use Opera again after blaming the software because of this. These stupid users…. =X KKKKKKKKKKKKK

          You can quickly access it by pressing Alt

            I know it but imagine someone that don’t knows!

    Yup, I guess something is left over from the folder or something, I’m not complaining… I like it a lot.

    I still prefer the look from one of the previous snapshots, where the panel button and the new tab button are centered on the tab bar and the new tab button is attached to the last tab. I hope they change it back in the next few snapshots.

      The new tab button STILL attached to the last tab in this beta, don’t you saw it? (not in that post picture, but I’m using and there it is)

      • somebody

        Thanx, i havent tried it yet :). I saw the attachment in one of the replies and assumed it was still the same. I’m waiting for the official post on the desktop blog to download and try it :) .

          I’m using the latest Beta after my previous version auto updated itself and i still find that the New Tab button is separate from the last tab and the gap keeps changing when you try to add a new tab. John Hicks had stated that it’s a bug and will be fixed soon, but it doesnt seem to be fixed yet. Or maybe its something to do with my setup?

  • somebody

    Lol, A Firefox ad saying “You are settling for good when there’s awesome” , in a post about Opera :) . That’s a nice touch.

    • mr.m

      Well, apparently Mozilla pays more.

      Opera10b3 is great. Tab Bar looks little messy and heavy too me. Is it possible to turn off blue dots?

      • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

        Don’t know about B3 but it was not possible to disable them in older releases.

  • Nick

    The new “Panels” and “New Tab” button are ugly, what was wrong with the old ones, also why the line below the address bar?
    I think in their effort to polish the visuals they’ve spoiled it, it was pretty much perfect.

    • http://www.favbrowser.com Vygantas Lipskas

      Agreed, they should reconsider older revisions of same skin.

  • Nik

    Beta 3 is officially available for download today, not tomorrow :)
