Opera 72 update

Today, we’re happy to inform you that we’re releasing the Opera 72 update. What’s new?

The main improvement this time around is in the Search Tabs feature. It’s now much easier to go through the search results and find the tab you want, since the results are sorted by relevance. Content matches are sorted by the number of keyword matches in the content, highest number first.

In the search results, tabs are sorted in this order:

  • Title matches
  • URL matches
  • Content matches (open tabs only)
  • Although this build is based on an older chromium version (86.0.4240.80), it includes an important security fix for CVE-2020-15999.
