Opera Software has released Opera 60.0, a major new version of its web browser dubbed Reborn 3. The ‘3’ is a partial reference to the browser’s support for Web3, the so-called decentralized “block-chain based internet of the future”.
The new browser’s support for Web3 comes with a new Crypto Wallet to facilitate secure online identification and transactions. The browser’s free VPN service has also been overhauled along with a design refresh.
What is ‘Web 3’?
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.
“The blockchain and the web will connect together in lots of interesting ways.” – Tim Berners-Lee
