Opera Touch for Android and iOS Download
Opera announces Opera Touch, a new mobile browser designed for faster and easier browsing. The Opera Touch features a fast web search and is designed to make it easy to browse with only one hand.
The new mobile browser launches directly with the search field activated and the keyboard open every time, so you can start typing immediately. A Fast Action Button or FAB is placed near the bottom of the screen. This button opens a carousel of options when you press and hold it, and commonly done tasks such as switching tabs, reloading the page or going back can all be done from here without having to reach for the top of the phone’s screen.
Features of Opera Touch
Opera Touch also includes other features, such as ad-blocker, cryptojacking protection, QR and barcode scanner and a dynamic speed dial feature that changes with your browsing patterns.
Another feature is Flow. With this, users can send links from Opera Touch on their mobile and the desktop Opera browser. The connection is established between the two browsers by scanning a QR code and there is no need to setup any account for sync. After that, by accessing a button in the FAB menu, users can send links to the desktop browser and vice versa instantly. The connection between the two end-to-end encrypted.
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 app to scan it and go to the website it links to. You can also use Opera Touch to scan a barcode on a product and 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 to switch to your most recent tabs, reload, close or send the current tab to your computer.
Create your own Flow for the things you find online
Use Opera Touch together with your Opera computer browser for seamless web browsing across your devices. Connecting your phone with your PC has never been easier. Just start the Opera PC 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.
Although Opera Touch is not yet available for iOS and does have in built VPN features.
