It’s unusual to have a new developer version on Friday, thus we also have an unusual non-default screenshot to start with – all in dark.
Important things first
This initial build of Opera 46 comes with important fixes for the out of memory bug when using VPN and one nasty crash that might appear during startup. It’s important for us to verify them – our lab tests suggest there should be no further problems, but to be completely sure we need your help. Weekend comes, so browse a lot.
Further UI changes
In addition there are multiple UI-related fixes. The most visible ones are addressing the misbehaving tooltips both in normal and private mode. Changes specific to Mac, such as removing little visual glitches and minor fixes for ad blocker, have been made.
Under the hood
This version comes with an updated Chromium (59.0.3047.4) and enabled expensive background tabs throttling (opera://flags/#background-tab-throttling-max-delay-30s). You can try it out yourself: background timer throttling demo. If you encounter any problems related to background tabs and their behavior let us know.
