Gray look is better.
Wonder if a blue V logo would fit better?
If i had some designing time on hand...

Yes, I think it looks better .. not that I dislike coloured tabs. I think I prefer the grey but it's good to have the option to choose. Blue button might work - you should ask them. You never know :)

This build is quicker for me, browser loads quicker and so do pages. Another Opera team member has joined their ranks as well. Good to see.

Ya, well, maybe i should learn how to correctly spell the color grey before posting that request!

Another Opera team member has joined you say?
Good news indeed!

:D ... you did spell it correctly, depending which side of the pond you're at.

I think the guy who joined from Opera is more on the Linux side of things.

Thanks for sharing this. I'll give it a go later on tonight. :)

Snapshot available;

"More visual improvements and better mouse support"....

Quite a lot of changes in this snapshot so best read the page before you decide to try it.

Pay particular attention to the known issues - I'll print them here;

The default keyboard shortcut for "Cheat sheet" might not work on some keyboard layouts—You can change it

No menu item for "Cheat Sheet" on Linux and MacOS

The Extensions manager is blank—Installed extensions will continue to work

Copy and paste in the bookmarks manager may not work

Thumbnail tabs on the left have some issues

Manually checking for autoupdate can fail—Restart the browser and wait and autoupdate should work.

Extensions do still work, but the extensions page is blank - so that might be an issue for some users. But the update went fine and the browser runs fine.

"Visual improvements" are welcome, very nice indeed! :)

Visual improvements are good. Shows what can be done with these browsers as regards the user interface etc. This build is very buggy though, for me at least, and I've had one or two problems while messing around with it. They did have problems with it, that's why it was a few days later being released than usual. Hopefully they'll iron some of them out for the next build.

Building this browser, and adding in all the features that users want, is a huge task. I still think they're doing a great job of it.

Plenty of work for sure!

Did dab into a bit of .html once upon a time and can only image what these folks are up against.
Check, double-check, triple-check...
