Opera launched “Opera Neon,” a concept browser to try out new ideas. The new browser is unlike any other and has some excellent and useful features. Neon is not a complete browser as it is still a concept but includes some features that you might want to see in your next browser. You can download Opera Neon but before proceeding, here are the features of Opera Neon that you should not miss:
We are used to dull backgrounds in our internet browsers. Nobody wants a white or tasteless background in the browser. For this purpose, you can customize your browser with many useful extensions available on respective platforms. But Opera Neon’s homepage is far better and interesting than other browsers. Opera Neon uses your desktop wallpaper as a background in the browser. Because your favorite image is the only the one that made to your desktop. The browser background changes with your desktop wallpaper.
Visual tab bar:
The visual tab bar is unlike any other browser. The new bar looks like chat heads on Facebook Messenger app for Android. The browser extracts site’s favicon image and uses it as the primary image for the bubble. This feature is not efficient, but it works on many sites.
FLOATING BUBBLES ARE AWESOME
The Left sidebar is another new addition in Opera Neon. It includes player, snap, gallery, downloads and open new website button. Snap feature is used to crop images from websites, downloads option shows things you downloaded, and the player is for playing videos and audios from different sites. The player feature is great as it can play videos from YouTube or any other site on the current web page in a pop-up. It was only possible with the help of an extension. Opera Neon also includes built-in image snapping tool which lets you crop and saves any image from the web.
This feature enables you to watch videos on other site pages. For example, if you want to look at a video on YouTube and go through your Facebook newsfeed at the same time then you can use its built-in player to play YouTube video in a pop-out on Facebook’s web page.
Split Screen mode:
Split screen is a feature that we needed in a browser for a long time. It is available on Windows, Android and now in iPad Pro but people still want to browse website alongside others within a browser. Opera Neon is the ultimate way to navigate websites by using split screen feature. You can snap two sites side by side and navigate them at once.
Snap to Gallery:
Snap to Gallery feature is very useful for those who want to save and crop images from the website seamlessly. Now you can crop your favorite images from any website or social media platform and save them for later use. You can also copy and paste them online anywhere you want with the help of this tool. Snap to Gallery is located on the left bar of the browser under video player feature.
The Omnibox is a search bar on the top of the browser which lets you search using any favorite search engine. You can search directly on Google by typing into Omnibox.
