Opera has announced Opera One, the early access version of their completely redesigned browser that is slated to replace the flagship Opera browser for Windows, MacOS, and Linux later this year.

Opera One: A New Browser Experience

Opera says that One is a new browser that transforms the way users interact with their browser. With its modular design, Opera One promises a fluid and intuitive navigation experience that adapts to the user’s needs. The browser has a clean and clutter-free interface, with plenty of space for future AI-based features and extensions in both the browser sidebar and address bar.

Multithreaded Compositor for a Smooth UI Experience

Opera One is the first major Chromium-based browser to introduce a multithreaded compositor, providing users with a faster and smoother interface. This new architecture allows Opera to continue its differentiation from other Chromium-based browsers and implement new features. One of these features is Tab Islands.

Tab Islands: Intuitive Tab Management

Tab Islands is a new feature that provides users with a seamless and intuitive tab management experience. It allows users to keep related tabs together in a separate island, making it easier to switch between browsing topics.

Tab Islands are created automatically and are marked by separate colors and clear island borders, making them easy to distinguish in the browser UI. They can also be created manually by grouping tabs together or by dragging and dropping tabs between islands.

AI Features in the Sidebar

Opera One includes AI-based features in the browser sidebar, making it more functional and intuitive. In the future, Opera plans to become fully modular, enabling the browser UI to adapt dynamically to the user’s needs.


You can currently download the early-access developer version of Opera One from Opera website.
