Opera Brings Out New One-Handed Browser Called Touch
Opera Software today announced Touch, a mobile browser that prioritizes one-handed use thanks to dedicated buttons and actions. When launched, Touch offers a search bar, QR code scanner, and voice search tool. People can put any of these to find information quickly. A "fast action" button is always available on the browser screen to provide access to these instant search tools as well as navigate through web pages. Opera says Touch syncs seamlessly with its desktop browser and supports its Flow tool, which lets people access saved images, links, videos, and notes between devices. Opera Touch is available for Android devices beginning today and will reach the iPhone soon. The new mobile browser is free to download from the Google Play Store.
