Opera is today releasing a new update to its stable version of the browser on Windows. The latest release of the Opera Browser comes with optimizations to tab’s display and more. Opera 53 which is based on Chromium 66.0.3359.45 is being rolled out with other enhancements and a set of bug fixes and performance improvements.

Opera’s latest release comes with many new improvements to the tab appearance, especially for Mac users. The new tab improvements let users expand the tab by just clicking on the relevant tab. This option makes it easier for users to manage the tab interface.

“Today, we’re transitioning Opera 53 from the beta line to stable. This build revamps the appearance of tabs and the address bar,” said Krystian Kolondra, EVP Desktop at Opera.

The tab optimizations are also being rolled out to all Windows users along with Linux and Mac users who have downloaded Opera on their desktops. Opera is also introducing a revamped address bar which appears to be more user-friendly.

“Mac users find it difficult to locate and manage a particular tab when many of them are open. We figured out a way to optimize this and made your plentiful tabs’ favicons more visible,” he added.

This revamp helps users access the most used websites. The address bar has now been with some new colours and other enhancements which lets users easily access the websites.

The revamped News section is also being added under Speed Dial which is currently available for all users. But for the News Section to appear under Speed Dial users would need to provide their consent.

The latest update also fixes issues with favicons for bookmarks along with crashes for users who reported issue while clicking the VPN button. The latest Opera 53 release is available to download on Microsoft’s Windows operating system.

This is the same update which was rolled out to some Beta testers last month with new features and is now being made available for all Opera users on Windows, Mac and Linux.
