Opera 45 released. Install Opera web browser on Linux Ubuntu 17.04, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 15.04 and Ubuntu 14.04 Systems. Opera 45 is codenamed Opera Reborn. With the previous release of Opera, free VPN and native ad blocking has been introduced. Earlier this year they also introduced Opera Neon, a concept browser that represents the future of desktop browsers. Now, the best parts of Neon are being brought to the new Opera browser, codenamed Reborn.
Opera now has a completely new user interface that is truly modern, simplified, refined and playful. Opera is now available in two color themes: light and dark. You can also select one of the cool backgrounds that perfectly complement Opera’s new look and feel. For this final release, we have prepared some completely new ones. Both the background wallpaper and the browser’s color theme can be managed in the “customize start page” panel and in settings.browser
The entire layout has been updated with a new, high-quality graphical design that is more consistent across platforms. The tabs are simplified, lighter and more elegant, making it easier to locate open tabs. The new sidebar is more subtle and refined with a touch of animation.
Opera Reborn is the first browser to allow messengers to reside within your browser, without the need to install any extensions or apps. The included messengers are Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Telegram. To use any of them, simply click their icon. After you log in to the site, there are two ways of using this feature: you can open it in overlay or pin it side-by-side with your current tab. Pinning a communicator allows you to combine online chatting with a full browsing experience. You can also decide which of the messengers to enable in your sidebar by selecting them under ‘Customize start page.’
If you use more than one messenger, you can easily switch between them by using our shortcut key for quicker access (⌘ + ⇧ + m on macOS, CTRL + SHIFT + m on Windows and Linux).
