The dependent team at Opera have today released Opera Android browser 54 bringing with it a wealth of new features including new themes, bitcoin payment support and more. Version 54 comes with a major design shift, with which we go beyond dark and light modes and add plenty of colors Offering the first iteration of the new design codenamed Squircles. The Appearance section is now reworked and expanded with more (colorful) options to make the browser your own.
Opera 54 for Android expands the browsers crypto currency support and now in addition to the existing support for Ethereum (ETH), version 54 is introducing support for Bitcoin (BTC). You can now choose to add a Bitcoin card to your wallet, making it possible to send and receive money from the web in Bitcoin or Ethereum depending on your preference. Check out the video below to learn more about the new theme and crypto payment systems incorporated into version 54.
Opera explain a little more about the new features they have added in version 54. “We get a lot of support mail from users about annoying push notifications from sites they have visited. While these notifications are a standard part of the web and require user opt-in, we know that it’s easy to sometimes just tap OK on dialogs that are in the way. The default action for such notifications is now set to deny, rather than allow, to ensure that you don’t allow them by mistake. We have also added support for the emerging Web Authentication standard (WebAuthn) to make it easier for you to sign up for or sign into websites. We hope you have enjoyed this blog post and that you enjoy the new Opera for Android. Happy browsing!”
