Opera has been around for a long time, but the Norwegian web browser has been struggling to stay relevant during the last few years. The latest update to this app brings the current version number to 45 and promises to deliver a "reborn" piece of code that will surely remind some of the long-gone Flock and Rockmelt social-focused browsers.

The new Opera browser comes with the following highlights:

  • Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Telegram integrated into the side bar
  • a new dark theme
  • overhauled layout, with new icons that sometimes change colors when active
  • ad blocker improvements, such as automatic reload of a page when turning on or off ad blocking for that page, improved block list management, and more
  • improved GPU video decoding support
  • various security tweaks

Opera 45 "Reborn" comes with a Chromium 58 core, which also has its own fixes and improvements. The browser is freely available to download for Windows, macOS, and Linux users.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
