Opera web browser 67 was released a few days ago with tab organization redefined via a new tool called ‘Workspaces’.
Often have your browser with too many tabs open? With Opera 67, opened tabs can be grouped into different workspaces. And you can easily switch workspaces via the icons in the left sidebar.
You can add up to 5 workspaces, name them, and designate their icons. Tabs can be moved to the workspace of your choice via their context (right-click) menu.
Other new features in Opera 67 include:
- Highlight duplicated tabs when hover mouse pointer over a tab.
- New tab-cycler via Ctrl+Tab shortcut.
- Sidebar setup panel via the three-dot icon in the bottom left.
- Improved security with DNS over HTTPS
- Improved Video pop-out (picture in picture)
