Opera Unveils ‘Opera Neon’ Concept Browser for Mac, Windows

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Norway-based software firm Opera today launched a concept browser for Mac and Windows that offers new ways to interact with Web content.

Dubbed Opera Neon, the browser, just like the original Opera browser,  is built on top of the Blink engine. What’s different is, Opera Neon was built from the ground up to put focus on offering “cool effects and animations” without impacting the speed of the browser.

neon-operacom-pageOpera Software consumer browser products business unit chief Krystian Kolondra said Opera Neon “envisions the future of web browsers similar to the way concept cars predict the future of automobiles.”

“Opera Neon is packed with fun ways to interact with Web content, including the ability to drag and push things around, and to even pop content out of the web and save it,” Kolondra said. “Opera Neon is a concept browser – a vision of what browsers could become. It is not designed to replace the current Opera desktop browser. However, we do plan to incorporate some of its best new features into Opera for computers as early as spring 2017.”

Features of Opera Neon, as listed on its website, include:

  • A new start page that uses your desktop wallpaper as its background.
  • A sidebar with its own video player, image gallery and download manager.
  • A vertical, visual tab bar on the right side of the browser window that makes it easier to distinguish between tabs.
  • An intelligent system that automatically manages your tabs. Like gravity, frequently used tabs will float to the top, while less important tabs will sink to the bottom.
  • A completely new omnibox that supports top search engines and open search.
  • Video pop-out, which lets you play videos while you browse other web pages.
  • Snap-to-gallery lets you snapshot and crop any part of a web page and save it to the gallery for later.
  • Split screen mode lets you seamlessly view and interact with two pages at once.
