As the browser war rages on, users are the better for it because it means you will always have the best of features when accessing the internet. Opera has just raised the bar a bit by adding some cool new tools to make ensure its browser continue to rank among the best in the market. With a direct VR Player, advanced screenshot tool, and a host of other features, there is even more reasons to install the Opera 49 web browser.
“Continuing our mission of reimagining what a web browser should be capable of, Opera 49 offers a snapshot tool with editing features, including a selfie camera, to help you add raw emotion to your screenshot. Capture any part of the web and add your own flare to let your friends know exactly how you feel about that new film, or how excited you are for your holiday in Rome,” Krystian Kolondra Executive Vice President of Desktop at Opera Software said in a blog post.
The screenshot feature is now equipped with more tools and selfie mode. What this means is that you can personalize your sharing when online. Recall that sometimes ago Opera added a currency converter to the browser? Five new currencies have now been added to the converter to give you more options when making your online transactions.
More customization options have also been added to improve the way you use the browser. Some of these customization options include extensions, rearrangement and Easy Setup mode for quick adjustment of the browser.
Here’s how to use the new snapshot tool:
Launch the snapshot either directly from the sidebar via the camera icon or by hitting Ctrl + Shift + 5. An adjustable frame will appear on your screen where you can frame exactly what you want before hitting “Capture” to snap your screenshot. If you wish to quickly snap a full web view screenshot, simply click “Capture Full Screen”.

After taking your screenshot, editing tools such as pencil, arrow, blur, zoom, emojis and a selfie camera will appear at the top. As soon as you are through, you can click “Copy and Close” to send your screenshot to your clipboard (you can also hit Ctrl + C from your keyboard). You can also save the screenshot to your system as a .png file.
Like I said earlier, a VR Player option has also been added to the browser—making Opera the first browser to provide support for 360-degree videos. What that means is that if you own an HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other OpenVR-compatible devices, you can easily view a library of amazingly rich 360-degree content.
Opera is partnering with 360 Labs to bring to bring to the 360-degree content to its users on the web. “When a user browses to a video, the “Watch in VR” button will appear on the top (next to the video pop out button). One simple click will engulf the viewer into the 360-degree world offered by the video. Plus, you will not need a mouse or keyboard to look around in the video. Simply turn your head in the direction you want to look.”
