Opera 58 is out, here is what’s new

The final version of Opera 58 is out. It is a modern web browser with interesting and exclusive features you may or may not like. Let's see what's new in this version.

Opera 58 shows a warning when you try to close the browser with multiple tabs open. It is one of the most requested features, not only by Opera users, but also by users of the most popular web browser, Chrome. Chromium, its open-source counterpart also lacks this feature, due to which the user can accidentally close all open tabs at once. Finally, Opera 58 resolves this issue.

Starting in Opera 58, the browser now shows a confirmation dialog to close the window. The dialog allows cancelling the operation. Here is how it looks:

Opera 58 Close Tabs Confirmation

If you are not happy to see it, you can disable it. Turn on the checkbox "Do not show this warning again".

The confirmation dialog will not appear in Private windows.

Open New Tabs By Middle-Clicking on Tab Bar

Starting in Opera 58, you can open a new tab by middle-clicking on the tab bar.

As many of you have requested, we’ve implemented opening a new tab by middle-clicking on a tab area. Now you’re able to open or close a tab using the middle-click. The difference is just where you middle-click in the tabs bar:

  • On a tab to close it
  • Next to a tab (in the empty space) to open a new one

Besides the mentioned changes, Opera 58 features a new Speed Dial wallpaper. Also, for users from Russia, Opera offers Yandex Zen, a smart, personal news recommendation service as a source for news on the start page.
