Opera 45 is 'Reborn' with dark mode, animations and chat integration

Following a mild visual redesign based on its "Reborn" project, Opera has now given its desktop browser users access to Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp directly from the browser's side bar. By building in messaging, Opera frees up dedicated tabs or desktop apps that many now use for messaging. "We believe this needs to change", he said. There are two ways to use the integrated chat features.

For further information and download links, check out Opera's Reborn blog post.

The messaging panel can either overlay the current webpage you're looking at or be pinned to the browser. Instead of having to install third-party extensions or apps, you'll be able to communicate within the browser using Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or Telegram as soon as it's installed.

Ad blocking improvements. Building on its previous support for ad blocking, Opera 45 now auto-reloads a web page when you toggle ad blocking, and it includes various improvements to block list management. A substantial part of the Reborn is also the UI of the browser itself - for instance, Opera has completely changed some of the icons and the new Reborn interface also includes some smooth animations to help improve the user experience. Overall it's a more polished browser than previous versions of Opera. It will also handle videos on Windows more efficiently, and offload more of the work to the GPU, resulting in "significantly higher framerate, higher resolution, and lower battery usage". Ad block, performance and updated engine Aside from the major additions, Opera has also tweaked several existing areas of its browser.

Under the hood, Opera 45 is based on Chromium (Chrome) 58, so numerous features found in that release have also been included in Opera, such as support for IndexedDB 2.0, improved iframe navigation, and others.

Easylist and EasyPrivacy are now enabled by default in the browser's built-in adblocker.
