Opera Neon, released in January, is an experimental browser that envisions the future of web browsers, similar to the way concept cars predict the future of automobiles. One of its novelties is the ability to seamlessly hop between discovering new content and chatting with friends, or even share online discoveries while browsing.
Inspired by Neon, we decided to bring those seamless transitions between chat and discoveries to the Opera browser. The result is Opera Reborn, complete with integrated popular messengers so you can keep chatting with friends without skipping a beat.
It’s great to see Opera back to making interesting browsers, even if the features specified aren’t exactly my thing.
You know I’m all for Opera trying out innovative features, but honestly I’m not seeing very much to be impressed with in this release. Changing the color theme: meh. Having a chat window and browser window at the same time: been doing that already for two decades.
There’s nothing wrong with small changes, but nothing here is deserving of the title “Opera is Reborn”. It should be “Opera is still clawing away”, but I jest
