Opera 29 Beta And Opera 30 Dev Has Received Interesting New Features

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, updates for Opera 29 Beta and Opera Developer 30 have been recently released, bringing important changes.

Opera 29 build 1795.30 Beta used Chromium 42.0.2311.60 as code-base and brings bug-fixes, while Opera 30 build 1820.0 Dev comes with a tab cycling inspired from the classic versions of the browser, permitting the users to cycle tabs in the order of the most recently used tabs. If you use the Opera sync service, you will see the tabs left open on other devices where you have Opera installed.

While the option is not enabled by default, the users have to go to “Browser -> User interface -> Cycle tabs in most recently used order.”, to activate it.

Also, Opera 30 Dev has received an improved tab menu, which now contains two new sections: “Recently Closed” (displays the last three closed tabs) and “Other Devices” (displays the tabs opened on other Opera synced devices).
