A new way to browse with Opera Neon

Opera has brought page zoom and built-in search to the browsing world. Now, the Norwegian developer has designed a browser that looks nothing like what most of us currently use. Opera Neon reconceptualises the traditional browser. With free floating circular bookmarks and a whole screen coverage, the interface resembles a desktop computer rather than a web browser. Web pages also appear as windows within the browser’s full-screen window. View full description

PROS

  • Strong Web standards compliance
  • Fresh browser interface with familiar browsing tools

CONS

  • Relatively unstable compared to existing browsers
  • A somewhat rigid interface that is counterintuitive

Opera Neon is a concept browser, meaning a vision for the future of browsers

Opera Neon is a concept browser built from the same browser engine as the Opera browser; it’s designed to allow users to focus on the most important part of the internet: the content. Opera Neon will provide users with fun ways to interact with web content, including the ability to drag and push things around, and even to even pop content out from the web.

A completely new user interface debuts in Opera Neon. It includes:

-New start page using users’ current desktop background image.

-A left sidebar with video player, image gallery, and download manager.

-A new visual tab bar on the right side of the browser window that makes it easier to distinguish between tabs.

-An intelligent system that automatically manages tabs; like gravity, frequently-used tabs float to the top, while rarely-used tabs will sink to the bottom.

-A completely new omnibox, supporting top search engines and open search.

Also, new ways of enjoying web content have been added:

-Video pop-out, which lets users to watch videos while browsing other web pages

-Snap-to-gallery, which allows users to snapshot and crop any part of a web page and save to the gallery for later use.

-A split screen mode which allows for two pages to be used simultaneously.
