Opera Next 16
Yesterday we pushed a candidate for Opera Next 16. I’m not surprised that many of you have figured it out already yesterday.
Features that we’ve added for this build are
- support for W3C Geolocation API,
- form auto-filler,
- support for jump-lists on Windows 7/8,
- presentation mode is now available also on Mac,
- opera:flags – you can play with experimental features there. Please remember that this game might be dangerous (and bite),
- Opera 16 is based on Chromium 29.
Please feel free to test and leave us comments – if you are not on the Next stream yet, go ahead and download it from attached links.
Opera and Opera Next run as separate installs so you can still use Opera 15 while running Opera Next 16 side by side to try out the new things. Opera Next 16 will also automatically update itself so you'll always have the latest build.
Usually, the first few comments are about the roadmap, so here are the features we’re currently working on: bookmarks, synchronization (Opera Link), enhancements in tabs handling (ie pinning and visual tabs) and themes. Our new rapid release cycle means that you should see the first cut of some of these in a few weeks’ time.
