v36.0 [9 Feb 2016]
With Opera 36, we are giving you even more enhancements for your favorite browser :). Highlights include better support for Windows 10, more customization on the start page and nicer handling of extensions in the toolbar, for those of you who use a lot of them.
Refreshed start page
We’ve updated the style of our top UI. The start-page navigation panel has been moved to the left, to optimize the horizontal space on popular widescreen monitors. We’re also responding to your requests for more customization power over Speed Dial – in the top-right corner, you will find the “Customize start page” cogwheel option, which allows you to change themes and customize the news section in one place. If you select “Show advanced options” from opera://settings, the start-page configuration will show even more settings – give it a try! Of course, this is not the end of our customization enhancements, more are coming in Opera 37.
Modern-app-like browsing on Windows 10
The UI has changed even more for our Windows 10 users. Opera now blends with the system, changing colors across the application to match its style.
To see it in action, make sure you have recent OS updates (Windows 10, Threshold 2) and then go to in opera://settings ->Browsing -> User interface and select “Show system color on top bar”.
Opera now adapts to your input method to make life easier for those of you using touch. With touch input, it will automatically increase the size of toolbar items and all context menus, plus it will give you a new icon for the fullscreen move, exactly like modern apps do.
We’ve also added some cool-looking graphics to make our style blend better with the native Windows 10 style.
Opera vs other browsers
Unlike other browsers, we try to keep Opera’s UI as close to the platform as possible.
Unlike Firefox, for example, we offer Windows 10 users native notifications, touch-mode support, the fullscreen icon and bigger context menus for touchscreens, as well as an option to switch to system colors.
And, unlike Edge, Opera allows you to enhance and customize your browsing experience through extensions, including sidebar and Speed Dial extensions. To handle many extensions, using toolbar icons in Opera 36, we’ve added an expander.
Plus, we have animated themes that look just great on Windows 10.

v35.0 [16 Dec 2015]
In this version, we focused on removing duplicate bookmarks, introducing a separate search bar, cleaning up the settings page and a few other improvements.
No duplicate bookmarks
We introduced a duplicate-removal tactic in Opera 35. When you aren’t signed in and syncing, the algorithm is pretty straightforward: we pick candidates for the duplicates removal based on their ID in the bookmarks model. If you are syncing, things get a little bit trickier because we cannot remove duplicates until they known to the server. Otherwise, we introduce duplicates again. We saw in our logs that duplicates are no longer an issue.
A(n optional) separate search box
In Opera 35, the search box appears as an advanced setting. If you enable it, the separate search box will appear next to the heart button in the browser chrome.
A cleaner settings page
We introduced a “basic” section in Opera 35, where you can decide about browser’s behavior on startup, how downloaded files will be saved, change your theme and more.
A more basic browser vocabulary
Instead of enigmatic word that states our brand, the term “menu” describes the feature itself. We saw that many more people clicked on the menu when it was labeled “menu” instead of “Opera”. It’s similar to the change we made from our previous Discover feature to the more generic and function “news”.
Minor changes intended for new users
We made another simple change: when you install Opera, we maximize the window on the first run, so you have one less click to worry about before using the app. And, there’s more for new users. Now, it is easier to turn on the bookmarks bar from the heart-menu popup. We decided to give you a choice to turn it on, when you need it.
Improvements under the hood
One of the most important changes we made under the hood migrates all the internal pages (start page, about, etc.) from a technology called WebUI to Chromium’s new Private API. All JavaScript communication is now done through this new extension API. It gives us better structure and we can maintain our code more easily. We’ve been gradually moving to this API for a while and we’re not changing just to make our lives easier. In Opera 35, we upgraded the download manager to this API and restyled it. It is not just nicer version of the previous one, but it is also gives you quick links to PDFs, documents, images and more.
Less unfinished downloads
Now, Opera will ask for confirmation if you want to close browser when you are still downloading in the background.
Improvements to muting tabs
Now, you can easily turn off the sound for a tab using a mute button. There are many more use-cases you provided us during our testing on the developer channel. We made the context menu richer, so when you right-click on a tab with sound, you can mute your other tabs.

v34.0 [10 Nov 2015]
General and user interface changes
- The Discover feature is now the news feed. We changed the name to make the feature more intuitive and accessible.
- Opera supports MSE audio (audio/mpeg and audio/aac mimetypes), enabling playback from Google Play Music and similar services.
- We improved downloads by adding some new functionality. For example, you can cancel a download directly from the pop-out and resume a download if it was interrupted by Opera closing.
- Opera for Mac now includes a share button that lets you share a page through most apps on your computer, like Mail or Messages or Twitter and so on.
Improvements
- Updated support for the latest Chromium/Blink release, version 47.
- Stability enhancements and bug fixes.

v33.0 [2 Oct 2015]
- The Discover feature.
- Surf Easy VPN.
- Speed Dial for folders.

v32.0 [27 Jun 2015]
Opera 32 brings more privacy, convenience, and personalization options for our users. New features include password synchronization, bookmark tree, animated themes, and the SurfEasy VPN download option.

v31.0 [16 Jun 2015]
The most important change we’re introducing in Opera 31 is its startup time. Opera for computers now starts up to 70% faster in comparison to previous versions. This is especially important and helpful for devices with slower, traditional hard drives.
Discover gets a makeover
We redesigned pages in Opera for computers so everything looks nice and modern. In Opera 31, Discover gets a better layout. Discover is a feature that serves you the most recent content from your region. You can also customize it by choosing topic category or country.
and more…
We are working on improved synchronization, with additional options, across your devices. This release synchronizes typed history between your desktop devices. Now you can get to your history faster.
