Opera Next is first Opera browser with Chromium engine (with video)
Posted on 28-May-2013 22:41. | Tags Filed under: News.

The all-new Opera for desktop is now out as an Opera Next version, Opera's channel for what used to be called beta. Made from scratch, this version is available for Windows and Mac and brings a new, elegant design and a list of new features.

Opera for desktop has not only been redesigned; it's also completely re-engineered under the hood. With the Chromium engine, users get a standards-compliant and high-performance browser. Opera’s Off-Road mode, previously called Opera Turbo, now supports SPDY protocol and enables loading webpages faster.

“Completely rethinking a browser in today's competitive market is a big thing," says Opera Software SVP of Desktop Products, Krystian Kolondra. “Our new browser is more beautiful and allows users to harness the massive amount of web content they are faced with today. Give it a try and discover something completely new.”

Opera's new desktop and mobile browsers will now be named to reflect the version number of the engine powering the browser. The recently released Opera for Android has been given the number 14, while the newest version of Opera for desktop has been named 15, as it is based on a more recent engine version.

The company says craftsmanship, seventeen years of hands-on experience and a passion for the web has helped Opera introduce a lot of improvements and new technologies in this new browser. Opera has refreshed most loved features and added some completely new ways to interact with the web.

Opera’s popular shortcuts start page has been refreshed to make exploring web content easier and smarter. Speed Dial shortcuts can now be gathered in folders and easily filtered. Drag and drop one Speed Dial entry on top of another to create a folder, or use the new Speed Dial search field to experience the power of visual Speed Dial entries combined with the flexibility and organization of a classic bookmark folder.

The new Discover feature allows you to lean back and get fed with new articles from your country, or whatever region you want to get inspiration from, right in your browser - all in one place. Pick and choose your category: news, food, technology or something else you are more interested in. Opera brings you a selection of relevant global and regional sources to discover web content more easily.

Based on user feedback, Opera decided to make the mail client a standalone offer, so that it takes up less memory and space in the browser itself. The result is a new, lightweight tool, Opera Mail. With the new labeling, filtering, threads and multiple tabs, users gain a faster and sleeker than ever mail experience.
