Opera on Tuesday released Opera Touch, a “light, fast and secure” browser the company says is the perfect browser for use on all-screen devices like the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.
The app is optimized for one-hand use, with a “fast action button” that is always available on the screen to offer access to the app’s “Instant Search” feature. Users can also use the button to switch to the most recently accessed tabs, reload or close a page, or send the current tab to your computer.
When you start Opera Touch, the browser is instantly ready to find things on the web. Just start typing or use voice search. When you have found a QR code, simply use the browser to scan it and go to the website it links to. You can also use Opera Touch to scan a barcode on a product to look it up online.
*Designed to be used on the go*
Opera Touch lets you explore the web using just one hand. The Fast Action Button is always available on your browser screen and gives you direct access to your Instant Search. You can also hold and swipe the button open to switch to your most recent tabs, reload or close the page or send the current tab to your computer in Flow.
*Create your own Flow for the things you find online*
Use Opera Touch on your iPhone together with your Opera computer browser for seamless web browsing across your devices. It’s operating system independent, so you can connect your iPhone with your Mac, Windows or Linux computer.
In fact, connecting your iPhone and other devices with your computer browser has never been easier. Just start the Opera computer browser and scan the QR code displayed there with Opera Touch. No login, password or account needed. You can now send links, videos and notes to yourself with a single click and they will be displayed across your devices.
*Safe and secure browsing*
Opera Touch employs the very latest in web technologies to keep you safe. The data you send in Flow is fully end-to-end encrypted. The browser also features Opera’s cryptojacking protection, which reduces the risk of your mobile getting overheated or running out of battery when you browse the web.
*Native ad blocker for faster browsing*
Opera Touch features an opt-in ad blocker. When turned on, the browser will block intrusive ads, making web pages load faster.
Opera Touch is free and is available for the iPhone and iPad in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
