Opera 38 Released with New Power-Saving Mode

opera-icon2

Opera browser 38 was released earlier today with new power-saving mode, which offers up to 50 longer battery life and avoids overheating.

By reducing background tabs activity and frame rate, using hardware accelerated video codecs in video-playback, pausing themes’ animations, auto-pausing unused plugins, including ad blocker, the new power-saving mode increases as much as 50% battery life comparing to other browser, and keeps your laptop over 3 degrees °C cooler.

This feature can be easily enabled from the top-right corner in Opera browser window.

There’s also some other features added in Opera 38:

  • add your own lists in add blocker
  • add your own photo as theme
  • extension button visible in the Speed Dial side panel
  • Speed Dial improvements.
