Opera's new Touch mobile browser makes one-handed web surfing easy

Opera's new Touch mobile browser makes one-handed web surfing easy

Opera Touch is the name of the new mobile browser coming from the Norwegian software company with a similar name.

And its the problem that most conventional mobile browsers have.

"We have moved the browser's key functions within your thumb's reach", said Maciej Kocemba, product manager at Opera.

When you start the Opera Touch browser, it will open in search mode (the keyboard will be up and the address bar cursor will blinking) allowing users to instantly search on anything they want.

But it's Opera Flow which is perhaps most interesting, especially to folks who like to use the Opera desktop browser, because it makes it super simple to keep your PC and mobile browsing in ideal harmony. That's because we know you usually want to quickly find something online and move on with your life, or that your other hand might be holding that ice cream. Opera Touch on Android features a new navigation method called the "Fast Action Button".

The browser also comes with Opera's ad blocker and crypto jacking protection.With Opera's desktop browser, version 52 launching today, Opera Touch can share information by scanning a QR code, thus doing away with the hassle of logins and passwords, as well as having to mail links to oneself.

That alone is a handy additional given that lot of mobile browsers still place all of their buttons on the top of the screen (namely, Chrome), forcing you to reach up or reposition your hand just to change tabs. Flow is available both in Opera Touch and in the updated version of the Opera PC browser.

Once set up, a "Your Flow" section appears in the browsers, letting users send content straight to the other device. Flow even features end-to-end encryption. The neatly designed feature is always available on the browser screen and provides direct access to the most recent tabs and a search feature.
