Opera Showcases "Future Of The Web" With Neon, A New Concept Browser

Opera has just launched a new, experimental browser to show the world how it thinks we should be surfing the web in the future. "Neon" will not be replacing the regular Opera browser and is merely a way for the company to showcase its more radical ideas, some of which may be adopted in their main app.

The Opera Neon browser start page displays browser tabs as little circular icons that can be dragged around and reordered. The left sidebar includes a video player, download manager, and image gallery, while a new visual sidebar on the right hosts other active pages that can be pulled into the middle. The Neon browser can automatically manage tabs so that the most frequently used tabs will float to the top on their own volition, while those used less frequently will sink to the bottom.
