On their blog Opera has announced a new upgrade to the developer version of their browser.

The headline feature is support for Google’s Chromecast, meaning you do not have to use Chrome to send a YouTube video to your TV.

The feature is disabled by default, but can be enabled by going to Settings -> Browser -> User interface and tick “Enable Chromecast support”.

Opera can cast YouTube videos, but also tabs and the full desktop.

The update also brings support for cryptocurrencies in the currency converter, which now supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin.

The update also brings better protection for your session against crashes.

Upon a crash loop detection, Opera will not remove your current browsing session. Instead, all pages will be marked for manual reload upon re-activation, except for the current tab which will detail the encountered problem. This will fix the annoying problem of losing all opened tabs due to an unrelated problem such as with syncing, for instance.
