A new developer release of the Opera browser from the upcoming version 67 reveals a number of new features coming to the app, including Sidebar setup panel, Highlight duplicate tabs on hover, and more.
Opera 67.0.3574.0 Developer is based on Chromium 80, and comes with the following key changes.
Sidebar setup panel
The Sidebar settings menu has been replaced with a new panel, which can be opened from the three-dot icon at the bottom of the sidebar. It will allow the user to edit or remove all of the sidebar elements individually. Starting from the top, you can customize workspaces by adding, removing, showing or hiding them. Also, all of the Messengers are now listed.
In the Special Features group of the new panel, you’ll find features like My Flow, Instant Search, and Crypto Wallet. Opera Tools is the last category, with browser management areas like History, Downloads, and Extensions. History and Bookmarks can now be opened from either the sidebar panel or the full-page menu.
Highlight duplicate tabs on hover
Here's yet another interesting change in Opera 67. When hovering a tab, inactive tabs in the same window and workspace which has the same address is displayed will be highlighted with a color.
Improved login process for Opera Synchronization
Today's release comes with an improvement for signing up and logging into Opera Synchronization. You can now log into your browser from a new site in a separate tab rather than the previously-used popup. this should make it simpler for new users to join the service or to retrieve a backup when starting Opera on a new machine.
