Opera's new browser lets you chat on WhatsApp while you work

Opera's Reborn Beta Browser Build for Desktops Gets Social Messenger Integration

Other browsers now force users to switch to a different tab or browser window to communicate via the various social messaging apps. From there, simply check or uncheck the box next to Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and the other options. The company has instilled the applications on an integrated sidebar into the browser where users can chat on WhatsApp, Messenger, and Telegram without needing to go to the apps on the browser. And while Opera says users are saving time by not having to switch from browser to chat windows, for most people, access to apps like WhatsApp are only ever an alt-tab away. By default, the sidebar flyout will hide automatically once you click out of it - but if you pin the sidebar, it will work side-by-side with whatever website you are browsing.

Lastly, Opera Reborn also comes with some security and performance improvements created to enhance the overall experience.

But more importantly, Reborn includes some security and performance features, too.

Opera has been consistently pushing updates to its desktop browser in a bid to outrun market leaders such as Google's Chrome.

With the latest update, you can open the messengers whenever you want and pin them, so conversations do not interfere with whatever you are working on.

Opera has taken the wraps of Reborn, the latest incarnation of its desktop browser product. Users will also find "cool backgrounds" to choose from, which along with the new color themes can be managed in the "customize start page" panel and in browser settings. Opera said the interface has been "Reborn", the name of its extensive project to redesign the entire UI.

Interested? Opera's Reborn is now available as a free download for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. After facing questioning from users, the company told Ars Technica the sites "offer a good experience to users with ads on".
