The new Opera build will introduce some new features for its newsreader, such as history navigation, lesser recommendations in Settings, RSS detector improvements and new Opera Sync functions. The main concern of this version, though, is improving speed and performance.

Opera is making massive improvements with its newest version, Opera 41, which makes important advances in start times. The company claims its Opera 41 will yield improvements of over 50% in start times according to tests made with browser restarts when having 10 tabs open. There are also reports of 86% improvements in browser restarts with 41 tabs open. Those afraid this will come at the cost of overall browser performance should not fear as Opera is implementing several other performance update and features.

The reason why these performance boosts are possible is due to Opera switching to a better start sequence. The way this works is that Opera will now take your most recently visualized tab alongside the tabs you have pinned and make them its priority when you restart the browser. All other tabs you may have had open will be loaded in the background as you go on with your work, assuring a minimal downtime in-between sessions.

Through the usage of a codec accelerated at a hardware level, Opera also manages to reduce the amount of CPU power it uses during video calls thus also improving battery life.

Lower quality PC users should be pleased to hear that Opera will be using the same hardware accelerating process to reduce the CPU usage by 30% in regards to their pop–out feature for videos.
