The Opera Browser for Mac has been updated to offer native Apple Silicon support for M1 Macs.
Opera says with this release that the browser now runs two times faster on M1 Macs compared to the previous generation of the browser, offering a quicker and smoother browsing experience.
Opera now natively supports the newest line of Apple M1 processors. With the transition from Intel to Apple Silicon chips, Apple is able to gain more control over the performance of Mac hardware and the software that runs on macOS.
Like Apple, Opera’s goal is to make your online experience as smooth as possible. With this latest release, Opera runs 2 times faster compared to the previous version of our browser. This means faster access to your favorite websites, and quicker transition to Opera’s built-in features like WhatsApp, Telegram, Twitter and Instagram – all neatly packed into the sidebar.
The new Opera for Mac also features the ability to set custom keyboard shortcuts for its Flow feature (comparable to Apple’s Continuity/Handoff) and more.
Speaking of speed, Opera now lets you set your own keyboard shortcuts to quickly access the Flow feature, which connects your computer browser with Opera on iOS and Android. This connection is an end-to-end encrypted chat with all your devices for sending notes, images, links, files – all the things you don’t want to miss. You can also now create shortcuts to Opera’s built-in Crypto Wallet, as well as the Player feature – a gateway to all your favorites on Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube Music.
The latest version of the Opera browser can now be downloaded from the Opera website. [GET IT HERE]
