Welcomes back the old one.
Earlier this year, Google has revealed a new bookmark manager for Google Chrome, which wasn’t exactly something that many seemed to enjoy, with complains pouring about the confusing user interface and user experience.
Now, it looks like the search giant has decided to save its users from the frustration and bring back the “classic” bookmarks manager from the previous Chrome versions. While the ETA was not revealed it is supposedly coming “soon” and in case you did find the “improved” bookmark manager enjoyable, you will still be able to use it with this new extension.
Download it now.
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.
Could become the universal app.
Recently, Norwegian browser maker has ditched the Beta tag for its Opera Mini build on Windows Phone. Now, it looks like the company is also planing to release a build for Windows 10.
When exactly? The only time frame that they provided was “later this year” and it is unknown whether or not it will be ready before Windows 10 hits the streets.
Will pay you $10,000+ for mind boggling exploits.
If you want to get rich quick and have some deep understanding on how web browsers work and more importantly, how to exploit them, then good news as Mozilla has just announced that they too will be paying money for discovering various security vulnerabilities.
As a result, updated Client Bug Bounty Program will reward anyone if they create or report a:
In a world where a lot of people want to have thin devices with a great battery life, it looks like Google has decided that it too want to contribute, but this time with software rather than hardware tweaks.
According to the announcement, the latest Beta version of Google Chrome will now “intelligently” pause Flash content that it will think is not necessary. For example: if you are browsing a page with heavy content, Chrome will pause Flash content on the sidebar but will still allow you to watch a video, play video game or do other activities that are central to the visited page.
As a result, laptop owners could see an improvement in battery life although here is a better solution for you: uninstall Flash.
Windows 10 Build 10134 leaks, screenshots below.
Over the weekend, we’ve seen a freshly leaked build of Windows 10, which has revealed at least two new features that were added to Microsoft’s Edge web browser.
The first is a small but welcome UI tweak: a home button in the address bar, which will quickly bring you to the home page of your choice. What if you are a power user and don’t need such thing? The good news is that it can be hidden via settings so everybody wins,
Next feature however is a must for any modern web browser: ability to import favorites from other web browsers.
May, 2015 Desktop Market Share: Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera – Up; Internet Explorer, Safari – Down
Here comes the desktop.
It 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).
He’s back! With mouse gestures, tab stacking, 64 bit builds, Linux love and more.
Despite the fact that Jon Von Tetzchner has left Opera Software long time ago (to focus on other things), it looks like his love for web browsers refuses to vanish.
The latest proof comes from a newly released web browser aimed at the power users called Vivaldi and boy does it remind us of the old versions of Opera (minus compatibility issues).
