It’s 2013 and there are only a handful of browsers you can use on your operating system of choice, and unfortunately, Netscape isn’t one of those browsers. Sure – you could go for the standard browser that comes with Windows and Mac OS X, but for those of you who are daring enough to consider a new web browser, Opera has just announced its latest browser, Opera Next, is now available for Windows and Mac users.
Opera Next was built from scratch, which results in a much cleaner interface that provides a number of host features which Opera believes will make it easier for its users to find the content they’re looking for. The biggest change to Opera Next is the company’s replacement of its proprietary Presto engine with the new Chromium engine. The new engine will result in the browser loading more quickly while at the same time handling slower network connections better.
Opera Next contains some new and improved features such as Discover, which automatically feeds relatable content to users based on their interests, Stash, which serves as a way for users to save a website to view later, and an improved Speed Dial feature that lets users bundle shortcuts into folders based on their type.
