Opera web browser’s new update brings new features


Today, Opera becomes the first major browser to integrate social messenger services, allowing users to chat side-by-side as they browse. With the release of the new browser, codenamed “Reborn”, Opera continues on the path to redefine what a web browser should be.  Now, Opera allows users to chat with their friends while browsing. The new messenger experience includes:

  • A quick access to web versions of popular messengers – Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Telegram – directly from the browser’s sidebar
  • Simultaneous browsing and chatting with a side tab for messengers
  • An option to pin the messenger tab for even easier multitasking
  • Easy photo sharing by dragging any online picture to the messenger’s icon
  • Shortcuts allowing users to instantly switch between messengers
  • A menu button that enables you to log out from messengers directly in the browser

The update brings so many new changes in the user interface too. It brings some major improvements in the program UI and the menu options. You can check out the new changes in the UI here:
