Do you miss using WhatsApp or Facebook messenger when browsing on your laptop? This new opera update will please you.
Opera just launched a new browser that integrates messaging apps to its sidebar.
The browser is Codenamed Reborn, the browser lets you chat with friends on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram on a side window while you work on the main browser.

Other chat messaging apps such as WeChat and Viber are not supported yet, although the company tells CNET it is working to make them available soon.
In terms of user base, Opera is way behind Google Chrome and Apple's Safari, but has worked on bringing better features to its browser.

One of such feature is the ad-blocking and currency converter introduced last year.

The ad-blocker feature blocks intruding ads from the browser while the built-in currency converter allows online shoppers to see converted rates simply by highlighting the price of a product or service.

What can I do on Opera Reborn
You can chat.
You can share photos
You can sign in and sign out of a messaging app on the browser.
You can pin supported messaging apps to the sidebar as shortcuts. This makes it easier to toggle between tabs or windows.

"Using WhatsApp on Opera is exactly the same as using the web service," said Krystian Kolondra, Opera's Executive Vice President of Desktop on potential privacy concerns. "Like other browsers and websites, Opera does not have access to any information shared or transmitted via this service."

Do you still use Opera browser on your laptop? Will you start using it again because of the added features.
