Opera, the Norwegian company behind the popular browser, has released a beta version of the new Crypto Browser project. This Krypton browser aims to make it easier for users to browse for decentralized applications (DApps), games and metaverse platforms by providing direct access to Web3 services for Windows, Mac and Android users.
The current Opera browser has no sign-in, built-in ads, and tracker blocking to help keep it safe. According to a release provided by Cointelegraph, the new krypton browser will support these security features, integrating direct access to decentralized exchanges (NFTs) and gaming DApps, as well as support for Telegram and Twitter.
Jørgen Arnesen, Executive Vice President of Mobile Technology at Opera, said the project’s main goal is to help encryption and Web3 become more pervasive:
Opera’s Crypto browser project promises users a simpler, faster, and more private Web3 experience. This simplifies the Web3 user interface, which is often confusing for regular users. Opera believes that Web3 must be easy to use in order for a decentralized web to reach its full potential. . ”
The built-in wallet free of repositories will support Ethereum in beta and, through a recent partnership, will soon be expanded to include Polygon, Solana, Nervos Network, Celo, and naming systems such as Unstoppable Domains, Handshake, and Ethereum Name Service. Opera’s integration with Polygon is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2022.
The wallet supports both the interchangeable ERC-20 and the non-swappable ERC-721 standards, with the ERC-1155 being rolled out in the first quarter of 2022. Full crypto-to-crypto switches, and even access to the built-in NFT Gallery.
