Opera Launches its Desktop Browser for the Cryptocurrency Enthusiasts

Opera has launched a new version of its web browser, Opera 60, codename Reborn 3 released for Mac, Windows and Linux on Tuesday 9th April 2019.
The new version of the browser includes a cryptocurrency wallet that can be integrated with the existing Opera Wallets on Android.  It will also include Web 3 support which facilitates the Decentralized Applications (Dapps). It will enable the users to access Decentralized Applications on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain. The inbuilt wallet can also be used to store other Ethereum based tokens as well.
According to the blog post by Opera on Tuesday 9th April 2019:
This makes Opera the first ever Web 3-ready computer browser.
Previously Andriod and other mobile versions of the Web 3 browser have been released. However, this the first for a computer-based browser. A web3 browser interacts directly with the Decentralized Applications on the Blockchain; it replaces the call to the centralized server which was made earlier in the previous web browsers.
According to the blog post by Opera,
Web 3 is an umbrella term for a set of emerging technologies intersecting cryptocurrencies, blockchains and distributed systems that, together, extend the capabilities of the Web we all use today in important and meaningful ways.
It is the decentralized Web, where information is in the hands of the users.
Moreover, the browser has also added a VPN functionality which will strongly favor the crypto-community. VPN or Virtual Private Network replaces the IP address of the user with a virtual address. It will encrypt the location and other information of the user that mustn’t be shared with any other party.
The other popular Decentralized Application browsers include MetaMask, an extension of Mozilla Firefox and the New Brave Browser. These browsers are gaining a lot of popularity recently as the number of decentralized applications and smart contracts are increasing on a daily basis.
Do you think crypto-wallets and Dapps Browser will be included by other popular browsers as well? Please share your views with us.
