Opera Touch was released today for iOS. The “light, fast, and secure” browser is specially designed for all-screen devices with no home button like the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, and comes with an interface that’s optimized for one-handed use.
Thanks to a floating “Fast Action” menu button located at the bottom of the screen, users can touch to access a radial menu and swipe through several actions, enabling them to open and close browser tabs, perform searches, and navigating forwards and backwards through web pages with their thumb.
The main screen includes quick access to top and recent websites, and the browser also features built-in ad blocking and comes with protection against disguised online cryptocurrency mining, or “cryptojacking”.
Elsewhere, the app makes use of Opera’s My Flow feature, which allows users to transfer URL links, images, and note clippings between devices running Opera over a secure and private connection.
