The moment you open the new Opera Neon on your desktop, you’ll notice that this is not your typical browser. You will not see taskbar or bookmarks bar but there will be URL bar.
Opera Neon: The New Experimental Desktop Browser
According to TechCrunch, the Opera Neon doesn't look like a typical browser with taskbar and bookmarks bar. Instead of having tabs at the top of the window, you get round bubbles on the right. It automatically grabs the background of your desktop image and uses it as the background image of your new tabs page per window.
A sidebar is also present on the window located on the left that lets you control both audio and video playback. This feature pop out so you can watch a video even while you are surfing in other tabs. This same sidebar also features a screenshotting tool and allows you to access your recent downloads.
For those of people with very large and wide desktop screens, do not worry, because the Opera Neon also allows you to place two browser tabs side-by-side within the same window which is similar to the split-screen view on iOS or Android.
Opera stresses that this new experimental browser meant to be a “concept browser.” It won’t replace the existing Opera’s browser. “However, some of its new features are expected to be added to Opera this spring,” the company notes in today’s announcement.
