Opera today announced the release of new developer update v.59 which is codenamed R3 (Reborn 3). This R3 update comes with several new features like dark theme support, crypto wallet and more.
Opera mentioned in their blog post that R3 will be the world’s first Web 3-ready desktop browser. Opera has removed dividing lines between sections so you can browse without any distractions. Opera has given the browser a fresh new look. Also, Opera R3 will support both dark and light themes.
- With the light theme, your entire browser, including the sidebar and tab area, is bright and clean. To us, this evokes a feeling of openness and optimism. We designed it to spark productivity and lift your mood.
- The dark theme signifies to us a certain elegance and focus. It turns the browser dark and subdued, almost mysterious. But on a practical note, it’s also soothing for the eyes.
The integrated Crypto Wallet combines easy-to-use crypto wallet functionality with support for Ethereum decentralized apps, or Dapps. Along with the ability to send money from wallet to wallet and interact with Dapps, Opera also supports online payments with cryptocurrency if merchants support them.
