Opera announced the launch of Opera version 60 (codenamed Reborn 3), the company's latest desktop browser for Mac, Windows, and Linux. This web browser is touted as next-gen due to the additional support for crypto, a free VPN, as well as enhanced privacy controls and "Web 3".
The company boasts industry-leading support for Web 3 and cryptocurrency, allowing users to make transactions and interact with blockchain-based systems. And since more people are taking privacy and online safety more seriously, Opera includes access to a free VPN for the browser without logging.
Web 3 covers applications for blockchain technologies. The cryptocurrency wallet doesn't require the movement of funds to make transactions on PC, but instead syncs with the crypto wallet in the Opera Android browser app. Authentication and notifications are handled using the smartphone.
It wouldn't be a major new release for the team if they hadn't given the browser a visual refresh. Referring to web content as a painting, the new Opera design is borderless to allow said content to take center stage on-screen. Both light and dark themes are available.
With how the browser is shaping up with app integration for messengers and more, Opera wants you to do almost everything online in one place. For Opera fans, this is a stellar release. For those who haven't used the browser for some years and desire change, it's certainly worth checking out.
