Opera 19 Developer is here!

October 24th, 2013

Hello from Oslo,

We are ready with the first Opera 19 developer build. Why don't you give it a go and see if you like it? Your feedback is always appreciated.

There is a new option 'Advanced settings' under opera:settings-> Browser. It controls 'Use hardware acceleration when available (requires Opera restart)' under System and 'Disable tab bar's top spacing when browser window is maximized' under User Interface.

More options for power-users will be introduced over time.

Have a nice day! 🙂


  • Advanced settings exposed to power-users
  • Create your own theme from the themes manager (flag is off by default)
  • OS X Mavericks fixes
  • Ported chrome.proxy API
  • Stop Adobe Flash from blocking accented and Cyrillic characters input when executable is called opera.exe

Known issues

  • Renderer crash on a polish site (
  • Facebook is scrolled all the way to the top when click on any picture/video post
