Opera web browser 67 was released a few days ago and redefined the tab structure with a new tool called “Workspaces”.
Are there too many tabs open in your browser? Opera 67 allows you to group open tabs into different workspaces. You can also easily switch between workspaces using the icons in the left sidebar.
Add up to 5 workspaces, name them, and specify icons. Tabs can be moved to the selected workspace using the context (right-click) menu.
Other new features in Opera 67 include:
- Move your mouse pointer over a tab to highlight the duplicate tab.
- New tab cycler with Ctrl + Tab shortcut.
- Sidebar settings panel with three dot icons in the lower left.
- Improve security with DNS over HTTPS
- Improved video pop-out (picture-in-picture)
