New Features and Updates in Opera 73

More Workspaces

Opera now allows users to have up to 24 individual workspaces, instead of just 5. This feature was requested by many users around the world who are using Opera's workspace feature.

Updated Search Tabs

This is an improvement to the Search Tabs feature. Now every open tab line in your Search Tabs results has a close button that's visible when a line is hovered (similar to the behavior in the address bar dropdown). When clicked, the tab gets closed and removed from the open tabs list and added to the recently closed list.
