Opera 58: Warns If You Close Window With Multiple Tabs Open

Opera Developer Icon Big

A new developer version of Opera, version 58.0.3120.0, 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:

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.

Known issues in this release:

  • Browser doesn't start automatically after Recover > Reset…
  • You can’t copy using Cmd+C (macOS) if the Search&Copy popup dialog is open.
