Opera continues to bring improvements to its browser. The company recently showed strong advancements in integrating cryptocurrency into its experience. Back in July, Opera became the first major browser that included a crypto wallet within its experience. Now in the latest happening in this regard, the company is launching ‘Labs’ version of the browser that works coupled with the supporting Android app that offers to store the wallet keys on the mobile device, instead of somewhere in the cloud.
In addition, the new system would also offer to utilize the fingerprint authentication system of the Android device to authorize the transactions. This new Android and Opera web browser offers not to install any other third party extensions or plugins in addition to setting up a new wallet altogether.
The labs version of the Opera browser is a whole independent browser that you’d have to install alongside your normal Opera browser though it’s a one time process contrary to adding new wallets in the built-in Opera cryptocurrency integration offerings that were launched a couple of months back.
Currently, Opera’s crypto wallet offers the support for Ethereum Dapps and Web 3.0 in addition to tokens and ‘collectibles’. Considering how useful this feature could be, this could only make Opera appreciable among the Cryptocurrency users and lovers community while might not equip it to compete against the likes of Chrome and Firefox.
