Get hot, new content, with no browsing necessary. The new Discover feature allows you to lean back and get fed with new articles from your country, or whatever region you want to get inspiration from, right in your browser - all in one place.

Opera brings you a selection of relevant global and regional sources to discover web content more easily.
Imagine that, after hours of shopping at your mall for new shoes, you find a single shelf with all the pairs you have tried on so far, so you can sit down, compare, and pick the winner. That’s what Opera's new Stash feature does for you with websites. Simply hit the heart icon in the address bar to collect the websites you want to compare easily while shopping, or to keep your travel research on hotels, sights and flights at your fingertips. Scan your Stash by resizable page preview, or search what you've saved, with keywords.
Now, you can search directly from the new combined address and search bar. Simply start typing a webpage address to go directly to your favorite site, or enter a search term and choose one of several search engines to look for suggested websites.
Rest your eyes on the new, refined user interface. It is modern, sleek, deeply integrated with the platform and built from the ground up. Browse more easily with new elegant icons, tab bar and more.
Opera for desktop has not only been redesigned; it's also completely re-engineered under the hood. With the Chromium engine, users get a standards-compliant and high-performance browser. Opera’s Off-Road mode, previously called Opera Turbo, now supports SPDY protocol and enables loading webpages faster, even in the toughest of network conditions.
With the newly released Opera 64, users now have access to a tracker blocker. The company says it will block trackers such as analytic scripts, tracking pixels, and other data collection methods, meaning items you showed an interest in won’t appear in ads across the web.
The feature uses the EasyPrivacy Tracking Protection List, and when used in conjunction with the ad-blocker, can improve page loading times by up to 23 percent.
“We consider the tracker blocker to be a browser feature which can be kept on at all times,” explains Opera PC product manager, Joanna Czajka. “Our browser, however, also has plenty of extended privacy features which come in handy when someone feels the need to increase the privacy of their browsing even further.”
Additionally, Opera has upgraded its Snapshot tool, allowing users to save an entire page as a PDF and capture screenshots or specific sections. It’s also possible to draw and add text to the image and post it directly to Twitter, which should be welcome news for meme creators.
