Opera 45 "Reborn" web browser now features Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Telegram messaging support
Opera Reborn
This new version of the Opera browser brings some features introduced by Opera Neon to the masses, its main highlight being the ability to pin Telegram, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger to the left side of the main window.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
