  1. What is going on at Opera Software? An analysis of Opera Software's performance by Hindenburg Research suggests that the company that is best known for its Opera web browser faces troubling times. Note: Hindenburg Research specializes in "forensic financial research". Opera Software has not reacted to the report at the time of writing. The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating these potential claims against Opera Limited. The company was acquired by a Chinese-based investor group in 2018 prior to its IPO and things have taken a turn for the worse since then. The company's browser gross margins "collapsed by 22.6% in just one year" and the company has "swung to negative $12 million in LTM operating cash flow" from a positive $32 million in the 2018 period. Hindenburg Research's analysis of Opera Software's performance and activity since the management change. It uncovered that Opera's CEO "was recently involved in a Chinese lending business" that saw its shares plunge by more than "80% in two years" and that Opera has started to make a "similar and dramatic pivot into predatory short-term loans in Africa and India". The bulk of Opera's lending business is operated through applications offered on Google's Play Store according to Hindenburg Research and in "violation of numerous Google rules". The company concludes that these applications may be removed by Google at any time which in turn would cause Opera Software to lose a large part of the company's revenue. According to Hindenburg, Opera generates "over 42% of the company's revenue" from its short-term loan business. If that would not be bad enough already, Hindenburg Research's analysis suggests that Opera's CEO is directing company cash into businesses owned by the Chairman to "draw out cash". Hindenburg Research believes that Opera stock will go down significantly in the next 12 month period. The company set a price target of $2.60 on Opera; Opera Ltd's last course was $7.05 on NASDAQ on January 17, 2020. The course was at $9.02 two days prior but took a dive after reports went live. What does this mean for users of the Opera web browser? It is too early to come to a final conclusion. The claims made by Hindenburg Research need to be be looked at and it remains to be seen how Opera will react to the report. If the allegations are true, it could potentially mean the end of Opera and the Opera web browser. Source: What is going on at Opera Software? (gHacks - Martin Brinkmann)

  3. Opera introduces new workspaces feature in Opera 67 Opera Software introduced a new feature, called Workspaces, in the latest developer version of the Opera web browser for desktop operating systems. Opera 67 Developer comes with built-in support for Workspaces, a feature that resembles virtual desktops and also Firefox's container feature to a degree. The main idea behind Workspaces is to separate websites and web apps into different groups. Opera users could use a workspace for work-related activity, one for social media, and another for shopping or entertainment. Unlike containers in Firefox, Workspaces do not separate the browsing data but may improve tab management in the web browser. Opera Software says the feature is experimental at this point in time; features may change and while the company seems inclined to improve Workspaces in future versions of the browser, there is no guarantee at this point. Opera 67 displays two workspaces by default in the sidebar that users may switch between easily. The two work areas display tabs opened in them only and the switching happens near instantly. The first experimental version of the feature lacks several customization options and interactivity options. It is not possible to create more workspaces or change their icons in this version. Opera Software plans to introduce the functionality in future versions. Another feature that is missing is the ability to push tabs from one workspace to another; it is however possible to use the built-in search, using Ctrl-Space, to find tabs open in the web browser. Keyboard shortcuts are not support either at this point in time. Opera users who don't want to use the functionality may disable it with a right-click on the web browser's sidebar and the deselection of the two workspaces placed there. Open tabs are retained in the workspaces if Opera is configured to restore the previous browsing session and Exit is selected from the Opera menu. Closing words The main benefit of the browser's Workspaces feature is better manageability of open tabs in the browser. Opera users may use it to separate their activity visually and it may also be useful to hide activity in places in which someone might catch a glimpse of the screen. Workspaces is no Containers feature on the other hand and it does not appear that Opera Software plans to evolve it into one.

  4. Opera 55 Stable for Android is out: here is what is new Opera Software released a new stable version of the web browser on December 5, 2019. The new Opera 55 web browser for Android devices includes a new Night Mode and improved keyboard dimming functionality. The new version of the mobile web browser should be offered to Android users soon via Play Store updates. It may also be downloaded from Google Play (and other sources) manually. The major new feature of Opera 55 for Android is the browser's redesigned Night Mode. It is disabled by default but may be activated with a tap on the Opera icon and the toggling of Night Mode in the menu. You may customize Night Mode functionality in the browser's settings. Just tap on Night Mode there to open the configuration page. There you find the following options in Opera 55: Change the color temperature to alter blue light emission. Change the dimming. Toggle the use of the dark theme. Enable dark web pages. The feature enables a dark theme for sites that don't support dark themes by default. Enable the new dim keyboard feature; this requires an additional permission as the browser uses an overlay to dim the keyboard on the device. Schedule Night Mode so that it is enabled during a specific period, e.g. from sunset to sunrise or custom period. With Night Mode enabled, Opera for Android will display webpages that are opened in the mobile browser accordingly. It makes sense to use Night Mode together with Dark Mode on the deice and the extra dark web page and dim keyboard modes. All taken together paint the entire screen in darker colors that may make the whole experience more enjoyable in the morning and at night, and may also improve sleep. Opera Software calls it Super Dark Mode when all Night Mode features are enabled. The browser takes care of the UI, webpages, and keyboard that may be displayed when it is active.

  5. Opera's Start Page loading slowly? Do this to speed it up! Like most web browsers, the Opera web browser comes with a default New Tab Page / Start Page that displays a number of elements to users when opened. Opera users find a search bar on the page as well as links to certain websites and services. Opera browser users may enable or disable elements on the page; they may add news to the page or hide the bookmarks bar that is displayed. The linked websites may also be replaced with other properties. There may be a visual delay before the page opens in Opera regardless of the method that you use to open it. A tap on Ctrl-T opens a new tab in the browser but it is also possible to click on the plus icon in the browser's tab bar to do the same. Opera Software has been working on an improvement that speeds up the loading of the page in the web browser. Recent versions of Opera, including the latest Stable versions, support it already. The feature, called Shared Start Page, is not enabled by default in the browser at the time of writing. Opera users may enable it in the browser to speed up the loading. The feature is available for all desktop versions of the Opera web browser. Improves loading time of a new start page by sharing single webcontents. – Mac, Windows, Linux Note: experimental flags may be removed at any time or integrated natively in the browser. Here is what you need to do to enable the Shared Start Page feature in the Opera web browser: Load opera://flags in the browser's address bar. The page that opens lists all available experiments. Search for Shared Start Page using the search form at the top. Set the status of the Shared Start Page experiment to enabled. Restart the Opera web browser. When you open a New Tab Page in Opera after the operation you may notice that the page opens much quicker than before. I tested this on Opera Stable running on a Surface Go device and the loading improvement was noticeable. It seems likely that Opera Software will integrate the improvement natively in the browser at one point in time; for now, it is necessary to enable the flag to benefit from it.

  6. Opera 65 Final is out: here is what is new Opera Software released a new version of the company's Opera web browser, Opera 65.0 Stable, to the public on November 14, 2019. The new version of the desktop version of Opera comes with content blocking improvements, a redesigned address bar, and direct access to separate bookmarks and history sections from the sidebar. Opera Software released Opera 64.0 featuring a new theme and Bitcoin support last month. Opera 65.0 Opera 65.0 is already available for download on the official Opera website. Existing users may get the new version automatically thanks to the web browser's built-in updating functionality. Since it is not real-time, users may select Opera Menu > Update & Recovery to run a manual check for updates to download and install Opera 65.0 on the device. Opera 65.0 comes with several improvements. Most notable, probably, is the redesigned address bar that completes the browser's design updates that started with the release of Opera Reborn 3 in April 2019. The active site is grayed out when users of the browser start to type in the address bar; this puts the focus on the input and values that Opera returns based on the input of the user. Those who used previous versions of Opera may notice that Opera 65.0 displays website titles first and then hyperlinks, and that it is easier to distinguish between suggestions picked from the browsing history, bookmarks, speed dial elements, and search. Websites displayed in the address bar are displayed with a favicon in the new version which improves recognition further. Bookmarks and history are now accessible as separate elements in the sidebar of the browser. A click on history or bookmarks displays the interface. Opera Software hopes that this improves access and usability of the features in the browser. Bookmarks open in an overlay when activated from the sidebar while the history is opened in a tab which may need to be addressed to improve the user experience. Another change in Opera 65.0 brings an option to display the blocked trackers in the interface; this is only enabled when the native ad-blocker is enabled. A click on the content blocking icon displays controls to allow or block ads and/or trackers on the active website. If trackers are blocked, all blocked trackers may be displayed in Opera 65.0 with a click on "list of blocked trackers" in the interface. You can check out the full changelog on the Opera website as well. The browser has been updated to Chromium 78.0.3904.87 and Opera Software has applied numerous fixes for issues in the new releases as well.

  7. Opera 54 for Android: new theme, Bitcoin support Opera Software released a new version of the company's main web browser for Google's Android operating system on October 22, 2019. The new Opera 54 web browser features a new theme and comes with support for Bitcoin and TRON virtual currencies among other new features. The update is already pushed via Google Play at the time of writing. Opera users may check the Apps and Games section on Google Play to force the update to take place immediately. The new version loads a theme selection interface on first launch that users of the browser may use to pick from one of the included themes. A tap on a theme enables it right away, a tap on more options opens the mobile browser's full appearance options with additional preferences. There users find five colour options for light and dark modes; the new version includes a setting to apply the system wide mode -- dark mode or light mode -- automatically. The option is enabled by default but users may switch to light or dark mode manually in the Appearance settings. Tip: if you want the address bar to be displayed at all times, switch the "toolbars" preference from "only hide address bar when scrolling" to "never hide" under Appearance. Opera Software states that the new UI has a flat design with no extra layers or shadows to make it "visually cleaner". Company engineers reduced animation times and simplified several other things to make the browser "more quickly" in the process. The main design goal was to remove unnecessary distractions from the UI so that things can be done faster. Opera Software introduced a crypto wallet in 2018 in Opera for Android. It allowed users of the browser to store Ethereum using the wallet. The new Opera 54 for Android adds support for Bitcoin to the wallet; arguably the world's most popular cryptocurrency, Opera for Android users may now use the wallet to trade Bitcoin. As far as other features are concerned, there are a few: Opera switched the default button for notification requests from allow to deny to make sure that users don't allow notifications by accident anymore. The new version of the browser supports the Web Authentication standard next to that as well. Closing Words While Opera Software teases the new design and theme options as the main feature of Opera 54, it is Bitcoin support in my opinion that is most noteworthy as it extends cryptocurrency support.

  8. Opera Software tests Cloudflare DNS over HTTPS in Opera 65 Opera Software released a new beta version of the company's Opera web browser on October 17, 2019 to the public. Opera 65 Beta includes support for DNS over HTTPS (DoH), a privacy and security feature that encrypts DNS traffic to prevent spying and common attacks such as spoofing or pharming. Opera 65 Beta is already available. Existing Beta installation should receive the new version automatically thanks to the integrated automatic updating system. Opera Beta downloads are also linked on the official blog post that announced the new release. Opera browser is based on Chromium but the company decided to select Cloudflare as its partner for the test. Mozilla, maker of the Firefox web browser, entered an agreement with Cloudflare as well to power the DNS over HTTPS functionality of the Firefox browser. Google on the other hand makes available several provides in the DNS over HTTPS test in the company's Chrome browser. All DNS queries will run through Cloudflare servers when the feature is enabled in the Opera web browser. Requests that Cloudflare cannot handle are still handled by the local DNS server; this is mainly done to allow the browser to connect to local resources, e.g. those behind firewalls or on internal networks (which Cloudflare cannot resolve). The DNS over HTTPS feature is not enabled by default in Opera 65. Opera users need to do the following to enable it: Load opera://flags/#opera-doh in the browser's address bar. This loads the right experimental flag on the internal opera://flags page directly. You can also load opera://flags and search for Secure DNS to find it. Set the Secure DNS (DNS over HTTPS) flag to Enabled. Restart the Opera web browser. The feature is supported by all desktop versions of the Opera web browser. Opera is available for Windows, Mac and Linux desktop systems. The flag's description: Secure DNS (DNS over HTTPS) Use secure DNS (DNS over HTTPS; DoH) instead of local DNS. This replaces your default DNS with Cloudflare's public server for public server name lookups. – Mac, Windows, Linux The feature is experimental at this point in time. While it worked fine when I tested it for a short period of time, it is certainly possible that issues may be experienced. Uses may want to turn off the feature if that is the case to see if that resolves the issues that they experience. Opera Software, unlike Mozilla, has not published any information regarding privacy. It is unclear if the company has brokered a deal with Cloudflare that is similar to Mozilla's to limit data exposure, use and retention when the service is enabled.

  9. Opera 63.0 Stable is out: here is what is new Opera Software released a new version of the company's desktop web browser Opera to the public on August 20, 2019. Opera 63.0 improves the browser's private mode among other things. Opera users may run a check for updates with a click on Menu > Update & Recovery. The browser should download and install version 63.0 automatically at that point or list the update so that it can be installed. The new Opera 63.0 can also be downloaded from the Opera website. The new version of Opera improves private mode; Opera users who open a new private mode window get information about private mode on that page. In particular, Opera informs them that certain parties may still see the browsing activity, and that some data is deleted and some is kept when leaving private mode. Tech savvy users known that private browsing modes are only good for reducing local traces; visited sites, Internet providers, or the organizations that operate a network the computer is connected to, may still see activity. Users could improve privacy by using a VPN. Opera 63.0 informs users that it will delete the browsing history, cookies and site data, and form data when private mode is exited. Data purposely created by the user, e.g. bookmarks or downloaded files, remains available. The second change that Opera Software highlights on the official company blog moves the default location from the Other Bookmarks folder to the Bookmarks Bar. Newly saved bookmarks, e.g. by pressing Ctrl-D or clicking on the bookmarks icon in the Opera toolbar, are saved to the Bookmarks Bar by default unless a different folder is selected by the user. The log of changes reveals other improvements and fixes. Here is a selection of noteworthy ones: Chromium was updated to 76.0.3809.100. Download page load speed improved. Opera 63.0 is not a massive update feature-wise. Opera Software did fix several crashes and lots of issues in the new Opera browser version though which should be reason enough to update to the new version.

  10. Block Opera from opening a New Tab Page on Start I have configured all my web browsers to restore the last browsing session whenever they are launched on a system; that's handy as it allows me to continue where I left off, and to keep a number of sites open in the browser without having to worry about losing them or having to restore them through other means. The Opera web browser supports session restore as well but for some time now, I noticed that the browser would always open a blank page next to all the tabs from the previous session. While that may be useful to some users of the browser, I found myself closing the blank tab that displayed just the start page of the browser more often than not. One of the main issues that I had with that was that it focused the New Tab page automatically when the browser started. Again, some users may like it as they can run searches or interact with content displayed on the New Tab page right away. Thankfully, after some digging around, I found a way to disable the behavior. Once changed, Opera will just load the tabs of the previous browsing session when started and not a New Tab page as well. Here is how you make the change in current versions of the Opera web browser: Activate the Opera Menu at the top left and select Settings. You may use Ctrl-P alternatively to open the Settings, or load opera://settings instead which does open the preferences as well. Select Advanced and scroll down on the page until you get to the "on startup" section on the Settings page. You may also run a search for startup instead to display only that preference group. Flip the state of Display the start page first under "Retain tabs from previous session" to disable the feature that loads a new tab page whenever Opera starts. I suggest you test the change by closing Opera and opening the browser again. If everything worked out, Opera should just load the tabs of the previous browsing session.

  12. Opera for Android 51 Now Available with Built-in Free VPN Opera is one of the first browsers that brought a free VPN service to the desktop, and now the company is bringing it to Android as well. Opera for Android 51 thus allows users to browse the web securely by easily connecting to a VPN server, all right from within the browser. Opera says the built-in VPN does not create any logs, so information about your online activity isn’t stored on a server. “This means that the VPN servers do not log and retain any activity data, all to protect your privacy,” the company says. Additionally, the new version of Opera for Android introduces support for crypto-pairing, which is already available in the latest desktop version of the browser. “With the recent improvements to our Crypto Wallet, including our efforts to dramatically simplify the acquisition of funds, we are fulfilling our goal to make Opera for Android the natural choice for stepping into blockchain technology and Web 3.0 for the first time,” Opera explains.Older Android versions abandonedNeedless to say, Opera for Android 51 also comes with other under-the-hood improvements, so the browser overall should be faster and more stable. One particular change that takes place with the introduction of the new version is deprecated support for Android 4.1 to Android 4.3, a version of the mobile operating system that was introduced back in 2012. Opera says that users still running this version can switch to Opera for Android, but no further updates are otherwise planned. You can download the latest version of Opera for Android from Softpedia using this link. To enable the VPN and connect to a server, just go to settings or tap the VPN icon in the top left corner. You can choose from a series of regions and also see statistics regarding your browsing from the same screen. Source
  13. Opera for Android 50 Released with Improved Ad Blocker, Picture-in-Picture Mode Opera for Android has officially reached version 50, and this new release comes with lots of improvements, including a refined ad blocker and a brand-new picture-in-picture mode. First and foremost, the new Opera version now allows users to configure special ad-blocking rules per each website. Previously, the application only came with general filters that were applied to every page you loaded, and this approach wasn’t the most convenient for users who wanted to whitelist specific websites. “This feature was implemented in our Opera browser for computers back in 2016 and today we are bringing this experience to our mobile browser,” Opera explains. “The site-specific ad blocker option is also a friendly solution for publishers to display their ads. It’s also an easy solution for users as they can switch the ad blocker on or off in two taps on the websites that they value the most.”Hello, Picture in PictureAdditionally, the Android browser now boasts the Picture in Picture mode that’s also available in the desktop version of the application, so you can technically watch YouTube videos while doing something else on your phone. PiP requires Android 8 and newer. There’s also support for dark CSS themes, as well as faster opening of PDF files and documents. The Opera team says it has also focused on improving scroll support in the Android browser. “The scroll handle also acts as the quick jump tool used in previous versions of Opera. Tap the handle when the arrow points up or down to go to the very beginning or end of a web page,” Opera says. And last but not least, the application is available in a series of new languages, including Estonian, Lithuanian, and Latvian. You can download Opera 50 for Android from this link to get all the aforementioned improvements on your phone as well. Source
  14. Opera users who run any recent version of the web browser -- Stable, Beta or Developer -- and either the native ad blocker or a browser extension that blocks advertisement, may have noticed that ads are no longer blocked by either solution on search results pages. Opera users with content blockers enabled may notice that advertisement is displayed as if no content blocker was enabled in the browser on search results page. Opera made no mention of the change in recent Opera changelogs. Developers find information about it on Opera's Dev website: Opera implements an additional privacy protection mechanism. By default, extensions are not allowed to access and manipulate search results provided by most built-in engines. Privacy is certainly affected by the change and while the feature may improve privacy under certain circumstances, it reduces privacy at the same time for users with content blockers. Opera users who use content blockers need to allow extensions to access search results. Load opera://extensions in the browser's address bar to get started. Opera displays all installed extensions and some preferences for each, e.g. to allow them to run in private mode or access all websites. Find "Allow access to search page results" and check the box. The extension is allowed to interact with search page results once you make the change. Opera's Native Ad Blocker works a bit different in this regard. Activate the options link on the opera://extensions page or load opera://settings/adBlocker directly. Select the "Manage exceptions" link and remove any site listed there so that the ad blocker may block advertisement on these sites. You find sites like Google or Facebook on the list, and need to click on the menu icon and select remove from the menu that opens. The change is active only in Opera; it is not part of Chromium, Google Chrome, Brave, Vivaldi, or other Chrome-based browsers. Closing Words Opera Software faces a challenge that is very similar to that of Mozilla: the balancing act between improving user privacy on the Internet and being dependent on deals with search engine operating companies such as Google. Google and other search engine operators pay Mozilla, Opera and other browser companies for the integration of search engines in those browsers, and especially for the privilege of selection of the default search engine Companies earn money from these deals when users use these search engines and view or interact with ads, and other monetized content or other activity. The deal is probably the core reason why Mozilla or Opera have not integrated or enabled a full content blocker in their browsers.

  19. Opera Software plans to use a different installer user interface starting with Opera 57 and going forward. The company announced the change on the official desktop team blog where it highlights changes to all Opera channels for desktop operating systems. The change landed in Opera 57 Developer, the cutting edge development edition of the web browser. Changes land in Developer editions of the Opera web browser first before they are moved to the Beta channel and eventually to the Stable channel and the majority of users. Opera's installer is provided in two different versions: the online installer and an offline installer. The online installer of the Developer Edition showed no options at all. While it sported a new interface and displayed information about important built-in features, it did not display any options or provided users with an option to cancel the installation process using a cancel button. The offline or portable version of the Opera installer featured the new interface. The new installer highlights the four features "built-in ad blocker", "free VPN", easy customization and extensions, and built-in messengers. Users get a link to the Terms of Service that they may activate, and another link to open the installation options. Last but not least, it is possible to change the default installation directory right then and there. The Options page lists the same set of options that previous versions of the Opera installer displayed. Users may change the interface language of the browser, switch between stand-alone installation (portable), and full installation, set a different install path, make Opera the default browser on Windows, decide whether you want to import bookmarks and data from the default system browser, and decide whether you want to send feature usage information to Opera Software.

  20. A team of Belgian researchers discovered privacy issues in how browsers, ad-blocking, and anti-tracking implementations handle third-party cookie requests. A team of Belgian researchers from KU Leuven analyzed third-party cookie policies of seven major web browsers, 31 ad-blockers and 14 anti-tracking extensions and discovered major and minor issues in all of them. Major issues include Microsoft Edge's unwillingness to honor its own "block only third-party cookies" setting, bypasses for Firefox's Tracking Protection feature, and use of the integrated PDF viewer in Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers for invisible tracking. Cookie requests can be sorted into two main groups: first-party requests that come from the address listed in the address bar of the browser and third-party requests that come from all other sites. Advertisement displayed by websites makes use of cookies usually and some of these cookies are used for tracking purposes. Internet users can configure their browsers to block any third-party cookie requests to limit cookie-based tracking. Some browsers, for instance Opera or Firefox, include ad-blockers or anti-tracking functionality that is used in addition to that. Anti-tracking mechanisms have flaws The research paper, "Who Left Open the Cookie Jar? A Comprehensive Evaluation of Third-Party Cookie Policies", detailed information about each web browser, tests to find out if a browser is vulnerable to exploits, and bug reports are linked on the research project's website. The researchers created a test framework that they used to verify whether "all imposed cookie- and request-policies are correctly applied". They discovered that "most mechanisms could be circumvented"; all ad-blocking and anti-tracking browser extensions had at least one bypass flaw. In this paper, we show that in the current state, built-in anti-tracking protection mechanisms as well as virtually every popular browser extension that relies on blocking third-party requests to either prevent user tracking or disable intrusive advertisements, can be bypassed by at least one technique The researchers evaluated tracking protection functionality and a new cookie feature called same-site cookies that was introduced recently to defend against cross-site attacks. Results for all tested browsers are shown in the table below. The researchers tested the default configuration of Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Safari, Edge, Cliqz, and Tor Browser, and configurations with third-party cookie blocking disabled, and if available, tracking protection functionality enabled. Tor Browser is the only browser on the list that blocks third-party cookies by default. All browsers did not block cookies for certain redirects regardless of whether third-party cookies were blocked or tracking protection was enabled. Chrome, Opera and other Chromium-based browsers that use the built-in PDF viewer have a major issue in regards to cookies. Furthermore, a design flaw in Chromium-based browsers enabled a bypass for both the built-in third party cookie blocking option and tracking protection provided by extensions. Through JavaScript embedded in PDFs, which are rendered by a browser extension, cookie-bearing POST requests can be sent to other domains, regardless of the imposed policies. Browser extensions for ad-blocking or anti-tracking had weaknesses as well according to the researchers. The list of extensions reads like the who is who of the privacy and content blocking world. It includes uMatrix and uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, Disconnect, or AdBlock for Chrome. The researchers discovered ways to circumvent the protections and reported several bugs to the developers. Some, Raymond Hill who is the lead developer of uBlock Origin and uMatrix, fixed the issues quickly. At least one issue reported to browser makers has been fixed already. "Requests to fetch the favicon are not interceptable by Firefox extensions" has been fixed by Mozilla. Other reported issues are still in the process of being fixed, and a third kind won't be fixed at all. You can run individual tests designed for tested web browsers with the exception of Microsoft Edge on the project website to find out if your browser is having the same issues. Closing Words With more and more technologies being added to browsers, it is clear that the complexity has increased significantly. The research should be an eye opener for web browser makers and things will hopefully get better in the near future. One has to ask whether some browser makers test certain features at all; Microsoft Edge not honoring the built-in setting to block third-party cookies is especially embarrassing in this regard.

  23. Hi Nsaners! I'm late.... Some busy work.... Welcome Back! As most are aware that the forum went down on 26 June 2018 until today 1 July 2018 due to bandwidth limit exceeded for the month. Hence, I've made this rolled up update list(shuffled order - mostly sorted to nsaner's liked content) for the software updates to make one single thread for the better. Mostly includes Patch/Fixes/Keygens/Activators/Cracks and Portables. May not include some s/w updates. @[email protected]@[email protected] and other Admins/Mods/Staff: Pls consider this rollup thread and start moderation of threads ASAP to avoid hijacking server loads with multiple thread postings(with duplicates) at same time. Some may have already posted the topics... Sorry... Nsaners are welcome to report updates/inactive links/incorrect info or desc. Finally, Thanks @Matt for update with contact on site when it was down and for pushing the site live today. Also, thanks to Staff & Nsaners for sticking to the forum and for coming back today! Also, Thanks to ex-admins for helping @Matt with the issue. Update: No help was provided by them on this issue.

The uniquely innovative brush engines, the intuitive and fun interface and adherence to industry standards for pipeline integration, guarantee that Krita Studio supports your workflow and helps you get the most out of your ideas. Features: Krita has a user-friendly interface. In the settings menu, you can choose the color theme, which toolbars and dockers you want to use, and edit keyboard shortcuts. Save a given set of dockers as a workspace and switch between them. The canvas can be easily rotated and mirrored. The OpenGL canvas supports high-bit depth monitors. There is a large set of options available to create a no-distractions canvas-only painting mode It is easy to create seamless textures and patterns now. Press the ‘W’ key while painting to toggle wrap-around mode. The image will make references of itself along the x and y axis. Continue painting and watch all of the references update instantly. No more clunky offsetting to see how your image repeats itself. You can even paint off the edge and it will automatically start painting on the top. It is one of those features you have to see for yourself. A brush engine is more than just a typical brush pattern with settings changed. Each brush engine has its own logic and behavior. The included engines are pixel, smudge, duplicate, filter, hairy, hatching, texture, chalk, color smudge, curve, deform, dyna, experiment (Alchemy), grid, particle, sketch, and spray brushes. Brush settings can be saved as presets and shared. There are a staggering amount of blending modes available. The blending modes are arranged by category and have your favorites stored at the top of the list. Krita comes with many methods of selecting parts of your canvas in order to edit them. You can select with shapes such as rectangles and circle, paint your selection, polgon selection, select by color, select by Bezier. You can add, remove, or intersect to your selection. You can also make selection by layer contents by context clicking the layer and clicking “select opaque”. You can create a transparency layer by itself, or add one to an existing layer. This is great tool for non-destructive changes. Symmetry tools that go much further than basic mirroring. Take full control by being able to determine how many axis you need. Modify the origin center, angle, and smoothing parameters. Easy to toggle x and y mirror buttons in the top toolbar. Drawing aids such as perspective grids and shapes that have magnetic settings. Filters can be used directly on a layer, or as filter masks or layers. The effect of a filter is previewed on the image itself. There are special effects like wave, oil paint, and emboss. Adjustments such as levels, brightness/contrast, and HSV are also included. Additional tools that can be useful for making selections like color to alpha and color transfer. Krita has raster, vector, filter, programmatic, group, and file-backed layers. Each layer has settings for visibility, edit lock, transparency lock, and alpha locking. Layers can be dragged and dropped to and from other applications. Vector layers support text, vector shapes and filters on vector shapes. Krita supports the following color models for creating and editing images: RGBA, Gray, CMYKA, Lab, YCbCr, XYZ in 8 bits integer, 16 bits integer, 16 bits floating point, 32 bits floating point. Krita always uses color management.

  25. Most of us tend to choose a web browser and stick with it for years. It can be hard to break away from your comfort zone – especially when you've become used to its quirks – but trying a different browser can greatly improve your experience on the web. Whether it's enhanced security, improved speed, or greater flexibility through customizable options and plugins, the right browser can have a huge effect on your online life. Here we've put the biggest browsers through their paces (plus one that you might not be familiar with) to identify the one that does the best job of ticking all those boxes, but if you have a particular concern then read on to see if there's an alternative that might be better suited to your needs. After several years dropping behind the competition in terms of speed, Firefox is back in the game with a fully updated code base 1. Mozilla Firefox Firefox is back after a total overhaul, and has retaken its crown ➕ Very fast ➕ Light on system resources ➕ Strong privacy tools Firefox recently received its biggest update in 13 years, and it's so impressive, it's propelled the browser to the top of our list. Firefox has always been known for its flexibility and support for extensions, but in recent years it had started to lag behind the competition in terms of speed. Firefox Quantum, first released last year, represented a total overhaul of the browser's code base, with speeds now comparable with Google Chrome. That's not just on top-end computers, either – the new Firefox makes frugal use of RAM, even with masses of tabs open. Firefox also scores serious points when it comes to privacy. Mozilla is non-profit, which means it doesn't have the same impetus to sell your data as some other browser developers. The organization also makes regular updates to help protect its users' privacy as internet companies come under increasing scrutiny over the way they treat people's data. Quantum also introduced a new system for extensions that prevents rogue developers making malicious changes to the browser's internal code. It's not always the absolute fastest – for some pages Chrome still has the edge, as Mozilla's own video demonstrates – but the new Firefox has come out swinging and is our pick for the best web browser of 2018 so far. Mozilla Firefox review Download Mozilla Firefox Chrome is a superb browser - fast and adaptable - if you aren't bothered by letting Google handle all your online activity 2. Google Chrome If your system has the resources, Chrome is 2017's best browser ➕ Fast performance ➕ Infinitely expandable ➖ Resource-hungry With Chrome, Google has built an extendable, efficient browser that deserves its place at the top of the browser rankings. According to w3schools' browser trend analysis its user base is only rising, even as Microsoft Edge's install numbers are presumably growing. Why? Well, it's cross-platform, incredibly stable, brilliantly presented to take up the minimum of screen space, and just about the nicest browser there is to use. Its wide range of easily obtained and installed extensions mean you can really make it your own, and there's support for parental controls and a huge range of tweaks and settings to ensure maximum efficiency. But there are downsides, and potentially big ones. It's among the heaviest browsers in terms of resource use, so it's not brilliant on machines with limited RAM, and its performance doesn't quite match up to others in benchmarking terms. And with Google's tentacles running through it, you might be uncomfortable with the ways in which your browsing data may be used. Google Chrome review Download Google Chrome Opera is a superb browser with a clean interface and built-in ad-blocker, plus a Turbo mode that makes slow connections more useable 3. Opera An underrated browser that's a great choice for slow connections ➕ Excellent Turbo mode ➕ Integrated ad-blocker ➖ Fewer plugins than rivals It's sad that Opera makes up only around 1% of the browser market, because it really is a quality browser. It launches fast, the UI is brilliantly clean, and it does everything its rivals can do with a couple of extras thrown in for good measure. The key reason we'd at least recommend having Opera installed alongside your main browser is its Opera Turbo feature. This compresses your web traffic, routing it through Opera's servers, which makes a huge difference to browsing speed if you're stuck on rural dial-up or your broadband connection is having a moment. It reduces the amount of data transferred too, handy if you're using a mobile connection, and this re-routing also dodges any content restrictions your ISP might place on your browsing, which can be mighty handy. Opera automatically ducks out of the way if you're using secure sites like banks so your traffic is free and clear of any potential privacy violation. There's also an integrated ad-blocker – which can be switched off if you're morally inclined in that direction – and a battery-saving mode which promises to keep your laptop going for longer. Opera review Download Opera Edge works on all your Windows 10 devices, with sandboxing for security and a special reading mode to isolate the important content on pages 4. Microsoft Edge Microsoft's new browser offers full integration with Windows 10 ➕ Very fast ➕ Built-in reading mode ➖ Not backwards compatible The default 'browsing experience' on Windows 10, and unavailable for older operating systems, Edge is an odd one. Quite why Microsoft needs to be running a pair of browser products in tandem rather than making Edge backwards compatible is beyond us. The company's reason, it seems, is that Edge represents the more user-friendly end of Redmond's offering while Internet Explorer scales a little better for enterprise. Integration with Windows 10's core gimmicks seems to be Edge's main strong point. It happily runs as a modern-skinned app on Windows 10's tablet mode, and works with Cortana. It's also highly streamlined for the current web age, doing away with insecure protocols like ActiveX and forcing you into Internet Explorer if you want to use them. We're more used to browsers failing to render newer pages than we are to being told off for visiting older corners of the web. Curmudgeonly grumbles aside, actually using Edge is a perfectly pleasant experience. It's super-quick, hammers through benchmarks, its integrated reading mode makes complex sites more palatable, and by sandboxing it away from the rest of the operating system Microsoft has ensured that Edge won't suffer the security breaches of its older brother. It's just a shame that Microsoft is quite so insistent on forcing Edge upon Windows 10 users, making it the default browser for links opened in the Mail app, adding shortcuts to your desktop after major OS updates, and presenting it as a potential result if you start typing 'Firefox' in the Cortana search box. Windows 10 (including Edge) review Get Windows 10 (including Edge) Microsoft Internet Explorer is a fast and powerful browser, and makes modest use of your system resources, though it lacks the flexibility of Firefox and Chrome 5. Microsoft Internet Explorer Fast and efficient, but less expandable than Firefox and Chrome ➕ Make frugal use of resources ➕ Clean design ➖ Poor plugin support Microsoft Internet Explorer has seen some ups and downs in its long tenure, from dominating the browser charts to languishing behind its main two competitors. This is partly an issue of choice – particularly the browser choice that Microsoft was forced to give customers after a court ruling – and partially because older versions fell behind the rendering and compatibility curve. There are no such issues with Internet Explorer 11. It's clean, powerful, highly compatible, and it demands less of your RAM and CPU than equivalent pages would on Chrome or Firefox. Plus it one-ups both of them on WebKit's Sunspider benchmark. That's not to say this browser is perfect. Google's V8 benchmark sees it struggling, and IE isn't quite as able to handle add-ons and extensions as many of its competitors. So while there's no reason to avoid IE like there might once have been, if you're looking for a more customised browsing experience you're out of luck. Download Microsoft Internet Explorer Vivaldi is a relatively new browser that's bound to see more development soon. Its interface is fully customizable, though it doesn't officially support extensions yet 6. Vivaldi Build your own browser with unique docking and tab-stacking ➕ Incredibly customizable ➕ Creative interface features ➖ Not the fastest Here's something a bit different. We all spend probably far too much time sitting in front of our web browsers, and up-and-comer Vivaldi wants to make that as pleasant and personal an experience as possible. The whole style and structure of its interface is entirely up to you. There's a built-in note-taking system, you can dock websites as side panels while using the main window to do your main browsing, and we love its innovative tab stacking tech, which allows you to group up tabs and move them around to avoid the crowding that so often plagues other browsers. Vivaldi is built on Chromium, which means you can expand it even further with extensions from the Chrome Web Store. Just pick your preferred plugin and click 'Add to Chrome'. Some extensions might behave slightly differently in Vivaldi, but most work perfectly. Vivaldi is a refreshing and creative take on web browsing, and one to watch in the next couple of years as more features are added. Vivaldi review Download Vivaldi Tor Browser is a heavily modified version of Firefox that re-routed web traffic via random nodes worldwide 7. Tor Browser More than just a browser – a whole suite of online security tools ➕ Keeps browsing private ➕ Blocks tracking cookies ➖ Performance is slow Tor Browser is, perhaps unjustly, most regularly associated with the seedy underworld of the dark web. While it's true that you can use this web browser to access otherwise unlisted sites, Tor's privacy aspects – where your traffic is routed through random nodes the world over, making it very hard to track - are its real asset. Tor Browser is really a package of tools; Tor itself, a heavily modified version of the Firefox Extended Support release, and a number of other privacy packages that combine to make it the most secure browsing experience you're likely to find. Nothing is tracked, nothing is stored, and you can forget about bookmarks and cookies. You'll need to alter your browsing habits to ensure that you don't perform actions online that reveal your identity – Tor Browser is just a tool, after all – but for a secondary browser useful for those private moments it's a great choice. Run it from a USB stick and nobody need even know you have it at all. Tor Browser review Download Tor Browser Techradar.com
