Opera implements Messenger and WhatsApp into the browser

Earlier this year, we told you about Opera Neon – an alternative browser that wants “to change the way you use the internet”. Now the regular Opera implements one of its best features – pinning messengers in the desktop browser. Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Telegram get their tab in the sidebar and can be used side by side with the main tabs.

With the latest update, you can open the messengers whenever you want and pin them, so conversations do not interfere with whatever you are working on. There are also shortcuts available for jumping from one service to the other or when the boss is behind the corner.

Additionally, you can quickly share images to these services by dragging and dropping images on the messenger’s icon.
