A week in Oslo and Opera 18 Developer update

October 15th, 2013

Hello, I am Ania from the Wroclaw office. Last week I spent few days in Oslo office and I really enjoyed it. I had a chance to cooperate closely with Mac developers and tried Brunost in the local canteen 😉

Opera 18 is still in Developer stream, please give it a go and write down what you think. Thank you for all your thoughts especially for feedback about quick access bar. We decided you deserve a better feature so we switched the flag off to give us more time to improve it. For those who actively uses quick access bar, autoupdate will only hide the bookmarks, so please enable QAB on the opera://flags page for more testing.


  • Disable Quick access bar flag by default
  • Update chromium to 1650.8
  • Bugfixes

Known issue

  • Pages are black (especially when not loaded in the foreground)
