Opera 48 Hits Dev Channel Built on Chromium 60, Supports Converting of Fractions


Recommended Posts



Opera 48.0.2636.0 developer released


After unleashing Opera 46 last week as the new stable and most advanced version of the popular web browser, Opera Software today promoted Opera 48 to the developer channel.


Earlier today, the Opera 48.0.2636.0 build replaced last week's Opera 47.0.2628.0 developer update in the Dev channel, adding various small enhancements and numerous bug fixes. Among the new improvements, we can mention that the unit converted of the search pop-up tool now supports converting of fractions.


"The unit converter can now recognise an array of Unicode subscript and superscript forms, such ½ ft, 1⁄4 mi or even ³⁄₄₇ gal. You will notice, too, that imperial volume labels, such as gal (gallons) or mpg (miles per gallon), are now visible," says Maciej Kocemba in today's release announcement.


Now based on Chromium 60.0.3112.20

Besides expanding the unit converter, today’s first Opera 48 developer build also improves the visibility of dark icons in both the Bookmark and Extensions bars, sharpens the toolbar icons on the Windows build, and adds other stability issues. Under the hood, Opera 48.0.2636.0 is based on Chromium 60.0.3112.20.


Opera 48.0.2636.0 is available for download for GNU/Linux (DEB and RPM) distros, Microsoft Windows (installer and portable versions) and macOS operating systems from our website. If you decide to install it, please note that it's a pre-release version of Alpha quality so don't use it for production work.


In the meantime, Opera Software prepares for the promotion of the Opera 47 web browser to the Beta channel, which remains empty since the release of Opera 46 last week. You can check out the full changelog of the Opera 48.0.2636.0 developer release below if you're curious to know what exactly was changed in this build.
