Opera 58.0.3135.117 stable update;

https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2019...stable-update/

... a thought occurred to me - if it's stable, why does it need a weekly update for bug fixes?

It's like many apps on Android - "bug fixes".

Maybe it's 'cause they have to post something new every week to satisfy the user need to see something is happening to improve the app.

You're probably right, but then what's the point of having Developer and Beta versions to iron out all the bugs before a Final/Stable version is released? Fair enough, security fixes, but bugs that should already have been sorted? - just seems weird to me.

... and the Stable version has another update since my previous post, to 58.0.3135.118, although there is no blog post about it, but it shows on the changelogs page;

With all the devs, betas and stables (on all browsers), it's hard to follow the various fixes for sure and really is illogical that there be any on stable versions.

What gets me is all the so-called speed enhancements that i never notice.

At this point of the game - Opera is no.1 on Android - the rest is just blabla.
Vivaldi is the only one that offers significant novelties but i'm still not into it as much.

Agree about all the various versions of browsers. Dev versions, Snapshots, whatever, they're all stable in a sense that they mostly function well enough for daily use. It's good to try them and see what's in the pipeline for the future though, and I have a feeling that the forthcoming MS Edge Chrome will ruffle a few feathers in the Chromium world shortly. Could even be a game changer for many.

Brave for me on Android, especially on my phone although Opera is good and I use it on my tablet.

Oh well, i did it.
Just signed up for Edge-Chrome-clone.

Brave is impressive across the board.
Edge-Chrome might win my heart.
Who knows!
News about it is starting to trickle out.
Can't say as much for Opera R.

But Opera on Android tablet is hands-down hard to beat at present time.

If you look around you can download and install the new Edge now.

I've installed it, Version 75.0.109.0 (Official build) (64-bit) .... so far, so good.

It's a start.
Won't take on new themes.
Then again, it's a "beta".

Don't find it to start up any faster than Edge.
