Opera Celebrates 20 Years of Activity, Opera 42 Adds Built-in Currency Converter

And what better way to celebrate 20 years than with the release of a new stable update of the popular web browser, Opera 42, which hit the streets on the 13th of December, bringing exciting gifts the upcoming winter holidays. Among these, we can mention a built-in currency converter that works like magic and that might just come in handy to those of us shopping online all day long. It’s great news to hear that Opera is the world’s first web browser to ship with a built-in currency converter, but that’s not all the Opera 42 web browser ships with today as the new version offers a network installer for 64-bit builds of the software, a revamped and redesigned newsreader that makes it a lot easier for user to add news feeds from their favorite website, and a faster and smarter startup mechanism.
