Opera 49 released

A new version of alternative web browser Opera sports new features that may be of interest to some users, but aren’t likely to excite much interest in most.

Opera’s developers have added a screen shot feature to the browser, apparently in response to similar features being added to other browsers recently. I still don’t understand the point, especially since the feature can’t be used outside the context of the browser. You’re better off using a screen capture tool that works in any context.

There’s also a new Virtual Reality player, something that looks cool but likely isn’t particularly useful for most people.

Opera 49 includes numerous other enhancements, but most seem cosmetic in nature. The full change log has all the details. Note that the log includes changes made to Opera 49 while it was still only available as a ‘developer’ version.
