Opera’s new look.

From quite some time, Opera has been working on a complete redesign of its desktop browser. Code-named “Reborn”, the new browser update is now finally available for the release. All Opera users are going to receive the update automatically in the coming days.

The most visible, as well as the useful new feature is the quick access to messaging apps, such as WhatsApp, Telegram and Messenger. While browsing through the web, you can open a pop-up and start chatting with your friends using the new sidebar.

These shortcuts are always visible on the Speed Dial homepage. And you can even pin the new sidebar and the shortcuts will stay available while you browse the web.

Opera has also made a couple of changes to the icons and Speed Dial designs, which have got a fresh coat of paint. And there’s a new dark mode if you like black toolbars.
