Opera has today released a new developer version of their browser, Opera R3 (Reborn 3), with a redesign of its user interface aimed to “redefine the modern browser, both in terms of look and functionality.”
The new design is aimed at putting web content first, not the chrome of the browser, and features fewer distractions such as dividing lines between sections.
Another major upgrade is that Opera R3 now comes with both a dark and light theme, inspired by photography.
Opera says with the light theme, your entire browser, including the sidebar and tab area, is bright and clean, while the dark theme is meant to signify elegance and focus and is also soothing for the eyes.
Opera has also made other design changes, such as keeping the current tab header clearly visible amongst the tab clutter, and moving EasySetup and Snapshot to the access bar, where they are better placed for convenient access.
Opera R3 also includes an integrated Crypto Wallet which lets you browse Web 3 while signing crypto-transactions with your phone.
