    Interface is different from all other browsers but really usable


    Unfortunately it is a sort of beta test for Opera main browser and it misses many standard features.

    I really likes the bubbles representing websites, the playful animations and the widget with playing videos, vertical toolbars optimize the use of space for 16:10 screens.

    gusepo has used this product for one year.
  • Pros: 

    Very beautiful, futuristic, different experience


    Initial fase, so its limited

    I am loving the experience of a very different kind of browser, maybe this is the future, i dont know but i like it very much

    I want you guys to feel that youre doing a great work pushing the boundaries of ux design! Thank you!

3 things that excite me: - Snap to gallery - split screen mode - video pop-out What are the performance stats vs something like chrome? I've been a long-time chrome user and more than happy to change but want some knock-out punches to convince me :) (good start is using google search vs bing ha, nice!)

@bentossell Hey Ben! Yeah those were definitely a few of our favorites internally as well. Under the hood Opera Neon is built using the same browser engine as the main Opera browser so performance figures will be similar to our tests we release on our main browser. Our main focus with Neon was to explore new ways of bringing beautiful web content front and center in the browser experience. Neon will not replace the current Opera browser but is simply our vision for the future of how browsers might look in the future. Some of its new features are expected to be added to Opera this spring.

@chetaaron apart from the highlighted features, i feel when AI comes into a browser, that will change everything. As a part of my research in this, i feel you can also consider this possibility in the future of the Neon (which is the future of the browser).

@chetaaron @bentossell downloaded just after watching and I like it so far even though I'm not quite sure how to get it to do the split screen? 🤔 still my browser looks 🔥 AF though so thanks 😎

@think_andreah Just grab one of the tabs on the right and you'll see prompts showing you where to drop it to launch the split screen :)

From the video, I get a feeling that it's something like a Browser-as-an-OS?

Oh my goodness... I actually think I might love this. The video looks really light-hearted and fun. Real question... Battery Life? Please be good to me. It does the important things for sure...👇 But sadly no touchbar... 😢
