As part of Opera 45, the new update allows you to pin messaging apps to the sidebar and open them with a click of a button. Opera says that browsing and chatting simultaneously remains "cumbersome and inefficient", and this seems to be the solution to that problem.
These sidebar widgets are unique to Opera, and something not present in any other browser. "We believe this needs to change". With the new browser, Opera allows the messengers to reside within your browser without the need to install any extensions or apps. The most astonishing feature added by the company is the "quick access" to Messenger, WhatsApp, and Telegram.
The Opera browser now lets you continue browsing a current page while chatting with friends in a separate "communicator" panel for WhatsApp, Messenger, and Telegram.
The Opera browser is reborn thanks to the power of messaging. Beyond chat integration, Opera Reborn introduces several UI improvements, including two new color themes: light and dark.

An official of the local Korean telecom carrier first broke the news but could not commit to any specific launch schedule. On the camera side, we are looking at a 5-megapixel front facing camera and it is kept powered by a 2,400 mAh battery.
The messaging sidebar is built right into the browser interface and once users log in to their accounts, messaging becomes far more accessible.
If you are unaware, the new Opera Reborn browser takes a lot of cues from the concept browser the company released a while back, called Neon. "In this release, in addition to the new messenger experience, it brings a fresh look, new icons, colours, wallpapers and a touch of animation", Opera said in its release.
Reborn also includes a built-in ad blocker, and for some unknown reason four sites are automatically whitelisted out of the box: Facebook, Google, Yandex, and Baidu. In Reborn, Opera will notify users when they are typing in a password or a credit card number into a page that doesn't use HTTPS. What this means for end users is better performance, along with higher resolutions and lower battery usage.
