Opera has proudly announced that it has become the world’s first alternative browser optimized for Chromebooks.
Opera brings our attention to the fact that its browser brings a lot many new features that were previously unavailable on the Chrome OS platform, including a free, unlimited browser VPN, ad blocker, cookie dialog blocker, and color themes. Apart from these features, Opera Browser also includes built-in messengers and a built-in crypto wallet.
Opera believes these are some of the features that every web surfer looks for in any browser. They shouldn’t rely on third-party extensions or plug-ins to get things done. A browser should be capable of doing all those things that are pretty basic these days, for instance, an ad blocker.
It is great that Opera has taken care of such features and baked them right into the browser because the lack of such basic features can really affect your overall browsing experience.
Additionally, Opera Browser on Chromebooks also lets you do messaging using built-in WhatsApp, Telegram, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Messenger. So, you do not have to pick your phone up while you’re browsing.
Opera also highlights its colored themes while introducing the first alternative browser on Chromebooks. Opera says the browser has a set of five color themes available in both light and dark mode. There is a special night mode available as well that protects you from the blue light glare that disrupts sleep patterns.
Opera also that Opera for Chromebook can also be seamlessly synchronized with other Opera browsers using the “Flow” feature. You just have to scan a QR code and a connection will be established between your Opera for Chromebook or Opera browsers present on other devices, which can be a Chromebook, desktop computer, Android, or an iOS phone.
The Opera browser for Chromebook is available right away. You can download and install it to try.
