Today, we unveil Opera One – a completely redesigned browser that is planned to replace our flagship browser for Windows, MacOS, and Linux later this year. Based on Modular Design, Opera One delivers a liquid navigation experience and transforms the way you interact with your browser. We’ve furthermore integrated a multithreaded compositor that brings UI to life like never before, powering innovative new features like Tab Islands. This exciting upgrade comes just weeks after we integrated our first generative AI features, including AI Prompts and sidebar access to ChatGPT and ChatSonic.

Opera has a long history of reinventing itself and its products to adapt to the evolving nature of the web. Opera One is a big step in that direction, particularly with the adoption of a new Modular Design philosophy. While we’re starting with an early access developer build now, the browser will adapt to your needs, bringing only key features and relevant modules to the foreground when and where you need them. Automatically adjusted based on context, Modular Design will provide you with a more liquid and effortless browsing experience. Opera One will also harness powerful new AI-based features, which we’ll be adding in the near future.

The liquid navigation and Modular Design are made possible by our new Multithreaded Compositor, which Opera is the first among the major Chromium-based browsers to introduce. What is it exactly, and why does it make your browsing experience better? The compositor thread delivers a faster and smoother user interface layer, which enables high performance graphics operations without interruption from other processes. Together with Modular Design, this new architecture allows us to implement exciting new features that differentiate ours from other Chromium-based browsers – among them, Tab Islands.

A survey of you, our users, told us how overwhelmed you are by the messiness of so many open tabs, and that you wish web browsers would do more to help manage them. With so many open, we know how difficult it can be to jump between tasks and stay productive. That’s why we thought up a groundbreaking solution for you: Tab Islands.

Opera One’s new Tab Islands feature delivers a smooth and intuitive experience that can help you stay on task without forcing you to change your habits. Are you looking for the best place for lunch? The tabs with the menus, locations, and restaurant details will open in a dedicated tab island. Do you have a bunch of Google Docs you use for work? They, too, can get a tab island of their own. As you browse and more tab islands are created, you can easily distinguish the topics you were focusing on and switch between them. In the new, reinvented version of Opera, tab islands are the first manifestation of its Modular Design: they are clearly distinguishable in the browser UX, marked by separate colors and clear island borders.

Tab islands are automatically created to keep tabs together within the same browsing context. Open websites can also be gathered into a tab island by pressing the CTRL/Command button, clicking on the ones you want to group, and then right clicking to create a tab island. They can also be moved by dragging and dropping between islands, and you can add to an existing tab island by drag and drop or by pressing the small plus button on the side of the island.

Our updates in early 2023 – including the addition of generative AI features – have paved the way for this new, redesigned browser. But of course we’re far from done! We plan to ship an AI engine of our own in the coming months, we’ll continue to make the browser UI ever more intuitive and functional through advances in Modular Design.

Reimagine your life online by downloading Opera One today.

Naah, I think even the hardcore Opera users needs to test it first as it's super fresh, and since it's a developer release, it's bound to come with issues so personal I might wait a little.


Tab Islands—a new feature in Opera One built for users that interact with many tabs without forcing them to change their habits. Related tabs are now automatically arranged together in groups, or Tab Islands, based on browsing context, so that you don't have to organize them yourself. Islands can also be collapsed or expanded for more space, focused browsing and intuitive navigation.

Hey Opera users!

Today we unveil Aria, our new browser AI. With Aria, you’re getting access to a leading generative AI service for free. Natively built into the browser, Aria marks the beginning of a new kind of browsing experience.

Aria allows you to enhance your creativity and productivity by harnessing the power of AI. Based on our own “Composer” infrastructure, Aria connects to OpenAI’s GPT technology and is enhanced by additional capabilities such as adding live results from the web. Aria is both a web and a browser expert that allows you to collaborate with AI while looking for information on the web, generating text or code, or getting your product queries answered. For example, when it comes to customer support, Aria is knowledgeable about our whole database of support documentation and can use the company’s current product knowledge to answer your questions. Opera’s Composer infrastructure is also easily expandable. Composer allows Aria to connect to several AI models, and will in the future expand by integrating additional capabilities such as search services from multiple Opera partners. All of this will be unified into an innovative and coherent user experience.
Aria is a free service with up-to-date information – which means it’s connected to the internet and not limited to content prior to 2021 – making it a more advanced offering than standard GPT-based solutions. It is shipping in more than 180 countries including the EU.

If you’re an Opera user on desktop, you can test Aria by downloading the newest version of Opera One (developer version). As an Android user, you can now test Aria in the latest beta version of the browser, downloadable in the Google Play Store. As a tester, the only thing you need to do in order to access Aria is to create an Opera account, if you do not already have one.

Windows Brave, 2nd browser Edge
Linux Brave, 2nd browser Firefox
Legacy systems Firefox ESR
