Opera has announced that its Web3-focused Crypto Browser is now available for iOS, making the jump from the desktop for the first time.
In a new blog post announcing the news, Opera explains that the iPhone and iPad-ready app features a deep lineup of features that include several Web3 capabilities and crypto-related features.
For one, the Crypto Browser integrates a non-custodial crypto wallet that supports various cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum, Polygon, and others, while also including support to buy crypto without the need for other apps.
“In the Opera Crypto Browser Project, users gain access to an Integrated non-custodial Crypto Wallet supporting Ethereum, Polygon, and Celo blockchain ecosystems with more blockchain integration already on the roadmap,” Opera explains.
“The browser’s key features include a non-custodial crypto wallet with the ability to buy crypto with fiat, send, receive, and swap the tokens of any supported blockchain, as well as seamless and direct access to decentralized exchanges, Web3-based NFTs, and gaming Dapps – including over 7,000 Polygon-based services. Web3 can be accessed as seamlessly as accessing any website on Web2.”
In addition to the wallet, the Crypto Browser also features modern capabilities like the ability to restore an EVM wallet, a cookie dialogue blocker, cryptocurrency mining protection, and a native ad/tracker blocker.
“The interest in Web3 is continuing to grow,” said Jorgen Arnesen, EVP Mobile at Opera, in a statement to iPhone in Canada. “The Opera Crypto Browser Project was built to simplify the Web3 user experience that has often been bewildering for mainstream users. Opera believes Web3 has to be easy to use in order to reach its full potential and mass adoption.”
With a rich lineup of crypto-heavy features, Opera’s Crypto Browser certainly seems capable for Web3. The browser was already available for Mac, Windows, and Android, and you can now find the newly-released iOS version on the App Store.
