Meet the browser: Opera Next

Opera is known as the fastest and smallest full-featured browser, a first choice for people using older PCs and Windows 95 and a brilliant alternative to the default IE from Microsoft.

This new version has a chance to actually beat IE hands-down because it has a truckload of new and exciting features. It complies to all the current web-page standards, it has a completely new interface (you can choose from single window and multi-window view), built-in search, a download manager, an advanced mail/news reader, print preview, a huge bookmark collection and much more in a 2Mb free package! Well, the free package also includes banner ads, but Opera is believed to be completely free of spyware, unlike some of its competitors. It?s lightning fast as well as stable and it looks gorgeous. It?s simply perfect! For a complete list of features check out the official website, there?s vastly more to discover.

I wish they'd fix the text misaligned out of menu boundary on Gmail, SGI, Dell and other sites that use such menu. And that sites would update every time you visit them, especially when you first start the browser, now even if I set Check Documents/Images to Always, on start up I see cached page, ennoying. And what do we get? Ability to rename things... I mean aside from that Hotmail fix none of that stuff is any use.

Another one is out, and I think it's about time this thread gets a convenient link to their build page too :)

With the minimal focus on features and everything about bug fixing and stability, 9.01 looks to end up like a really good version.

Now that fixes actually becoming serious, are these builds safe to install overtop of the existing Opera, or do I have to put it into a different folder, or uninstall 9.0final and put this instead?

yeap, upgraded from v9.0 to v9.01 without problem. All seems to works fine for me with latest build. For me, only two application crashs (block content dialog) with v9.0 and v9.01... :)

Anyone notice how in build 8533, when my.opera.com/desktopteam is loaded, a Widget icon appears right beside the RSS icon? I swear it wasn't there before... :huh:

In any case, it downloads a mini RSS widget for that blog. Pretty nice.

Just installed, do you guys do a clean install? or an 'upgrade'? I did a clean install because it I wasn't sure. Also is this build faster? It feels a little faster, but could just be the placebo effect.

      Microsoft releases Flight Simulator patch version 1.9.5.0 with a bunch of fixes
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      As promised last week, Microsoft has released a new patch for Flight Simulator, bringing version 1.9.5.0 to all users. Today’s update contains a bunch of fixes and improvements to various areas such as the UI, airports, planes, and more. The changelog also notes that multiplayer has been deactivated in the Japan discovery flight.

      While the patch notes are short – in comparison to earlier patches –, the download from the Store is a 569MB package, with the in-game content download size reaching 2.4GB. The company is quick to add that these notes do not include “every single item that was updated”. Regardless, fixes for the VFR screen causing game crashes and issues in the Avionics screens will be welcome additions for those who have been experiencing them. There are other fixes for auto-generated scenery.

      Here is the complete list of fixes in patch version 1.9.5.0:

      Interestingly, the company has not listed if the ‘Press any key to start’ prompt has been removed from the game. The firm listed this ‘Top wishes’ item as fixed and slated for release in the fourth update, which is what today’s patch is. Another item in the latest Feedback Snapshot denoted as fixed in ‘Update 4’ is the issue with the left engine failing to start on the A320, which also isn’t present in the release notes.

      In addition to the patch notes, the company has also updated the list of known issues and the possible workarounds. These include issues with various aircraft, airports, weather, and more. Users can head here to read through all the known issues and workarounds.

      Apple releases watchOS 7.0.2 with fixes for battery drain issue and ECG app availability
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      Apple released iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14 to supported devices in September, earlier than it usually would have, due to the pandemic and delays in announcing the iPhone line-up for this year. The updates brought significant changes for Apple’s offerings, including a design overhaul to the home screen in iOS that introduced an App Library for all apps, new widgets and much more. watchOS 7 was also a major release, finally bringing sleep tracking, support for third party watch faces, and more.

      Just a week after the release, the first bug-fixing update for the OSes came on September 24 and brought fixes to the default apps issue on iOS and iPadOS. Today, Apple is releasing the second bug-fixing update for the Apple Watch OS, bumping up the software to watchOS 7.0.2. The release brings improvements to battery usage and a fix for the ECG app not showing up.

      Here’s the complete changelog:

      While the update itself is fairly minor, the improvements to battery drain and the ability to enable the ECG app for users in regions where the feature is supported will be a welcome addition. However, more fixes and features are on their way in watchOS 7.1, which is currently in beta.

      Latest Galaxy Note20 Ultra firmware update brings camera and battery life improvements
      by Abhay Venkatesh

      Samsung is beginning to roll out an update for the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which comes just a few days after the Note20 series received the October security patch. While the earlier update only brought to the devices the October security patch and nothing in the way of features, today’s update that is starting to roll out to users in Germany seems to be specific to the Note20 Ultra.

      According to the folks over at SamMobile, the update brings improvements to battery life and the camera. Specifically, the camera is receiving fixes to improve stability and night mode performance. It is not clear as to whether there were any issues reported about the reliability of the camera, but this update should fix any such issues that were present. Battery life improvements are also welcome additions for users of the device. Additionally, not much else is supposedly being added with this update.

      While the Galaxy S20 Ultra suffered from camera performance issues at launch that required to be fixed by software updates, the Note20 Ultra gained positive reviews and was not plagued with the autofocus issues found on the S20 Ultra, likely due to the addition of the laser autofocus module. However, the South Korean generally serves updates to further improve camera and device performance post-launch, which is what today’s update seems to be.

      Galaxy Note20 Ultra users can head to Settings > Software update > Download and install to check for updates and pull the firmware. Considering that the firmware update is just beginning to roll out, it could be a while till it makes it to all regions.

      Opera now lets you sync data between Android and PC with a QR code
      by Jefferson Mangubat

      Opera has introduced a new update to its web browser for Android and PC that makes it easier to sync data between its mobile and desktop versions. The company has also added Flow to Opera on Android, a native chat feature in the browser.

      The new Opera for Android, version 60, now allows users to scan a QR code that can be displayed on its desktop version, where that code can be generated through this link. Once that is done, the web browser will sync data between its Android and PC versions including bookmarks, open tabs, favorites, browsing history and more without requiring an email or password login. This is courtesy of the updated Sync feature of the browser, with support for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

      Stefan Stjernelund, Product Manager of Opera for Android, has this to say:

      Opera for Android has also added Flow, which originally comes from the Opera Touch browser. This feature allows users to "chat" with themselves in the browser to share links, photos, or texts across devices by highlighting them and choosing "Send to Flow" in the context menu.

      Flow supports end-to-end encryption and users can also upload files of up to 10MB. You can also send a current website by clicking on the arrow to the right of the address bar. In addition, Opera for Android adds Suggested Sites to its speed dial section in order to display your frequently visited websites.

      For its desktop version (now updated to version 71), Opera has introduced the Easy Files feature. It basically allows users to attach files by showing their most recently downloaded files so they won't have to dig further.
