Opera 58: Open New Tabs By Middle-Clicking on Tab Bar

The team behind the popular Opera browser released a new developer version of their product. A new developer version 58.0.3111.0 of Opera is available for download. It features a couple of new improvements, including the ability to open a new tab by middle-clicking on the tab bar.

The official change log describes the new feature as follows:

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 this change, Opera 58 features a new Speed Dial wallpaper.

Important fixes in this release:

  • Suggestions in search bar are visible now in dark mode
  • Pop-ups opened in full screen mode open in new tabs
  • Keyboard shortcuts are again displayed for options in menus
  • It’s possible to change the wallpaper from SD’s context menu again
