Opera’s latest version of its browser, the Opera 12, is now officially available for users. The popular browser firm released a beta version of the Opera 12, which was codenamed Wahoo in April. And now the final version can be downloaded for free from here.
So what does the latest Opera browser promise? According to a blogpost by the company, they’ve given it an “instant makeover”.
Some of the new features of the browser include:
1) More themes and colours: The new browser has over 350 themes. But just in case you’re one of those people who hates having to go through so much trouble to choose, the browser also lists a bunch of top themes to help users make a choice. We kind of like the theme featuring Sesame Street’s cookie monster.
2) Access to the web cam: This feature lets Opera 12 access your desktop’s camera, letting websites snap a picture of you, if for whatever reason you want it to.
3) Sharper graphics: This is one feature that is sure to help the web look better. Hardware acceleration allows the browser to render graphics using graphics card on desktops and laptops. This will make animations and other graphics-intensive operations a lot faster, according to the Opera blogpost.
It also has support for the Do Not Track header and improved language support for over 60 languages which includes Persian, Urdu, Hebrew, and Arabic.
