Opera 58 is the first new build of the year, but there are no big changes inside it. The new version comes with a warning when trying to close a window with multiple tabs open, as well as Yandex Zen news recommendation service integration into the start page for those using the browser in Russian.

The desktop version of the Opera browser is back with the first new build of the year. The update brings the version number of the Windows 64-bit build that I am currently using up to 58.0.3135.7 but, apart from a rather long list of tweaks and fixes, there are only two noticeable changes.

For some unknown reason, Opera lacked a basic warning so far, so its users could close windows with multiple tabs by mistake. With the new version, this will no longer be an issue. The warning dialog is enabled by default and does not show when closing Private windows. To disable it, the user simply needs to tick the "Do not show this warning again" checkbox. To revert this action, one needs to go to Settings > Advanced > User interface.

In addition to the warning mentioned above, Opera 58 also comes with Yandex Zen, a news recommendation service that replaces the default start page for those who are using the browser in Russia. According to Opera, "Yandex Zen uses machine-learning technology and automatically adjusts to your news preferences." For more information about it, feel free to visit this page.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
