This year marks 20 years for Opera as a browser. It has grown over the years and continuing that legacy, Opera introduced today Opera 42. The company says, it has some new gifts and let's have a look what they have got for us.
Opera has added built-in currency converter and by doing this it has become the only browser which has done this. Opera has added it to simplify things for people who make an international purchase online. As mentioned in the official blog of Opera, “According to research, within four years, 45% of online shoppers worldwide will purchase products from foreign online stores.” Therefore, Opera strongly believes that the online currency converter is going to be one of the common need in near future.
Opera users just have select the price they want to change on the page and it will be converted automatically by Opera. There is one more option, users can do the changes manually in the browser settings.
Opera 42 now loads the pages which you have accessed most recently before quitting Opera. Earlier, Opera used to rely on the order of pages to determine which page to load at the time of startup.
And last but not least, new and fresh look for Opera’s personal newsreader. Now simply click on the newspaper icon which will appear on every page which publishes a web feed. Your address bar should not look cluttered, Opera has taken care of that also. By default, this feature is disabled, which means clean and clear browsing.
