Opera just announced in an official press release that the new version of the browser will integrate Polygon. As an Ethereum expansion platform, it aims to facilitate users to access thousands of decentralized applications (dApps) on the Polygon network in a browser.
For some time before, the company has been committed to making it easier for users to implement Web3 interaction, and this announcement means another important step in this direction. If all goes well, we are expected to officially see Opera’s Polygon integration in early 2021.
Jørgen Arnesen, Executive Vice President of Opera Mobile, commented:
The cooperation with Polygon enables Opera to eliminate the biggest challenge currently facing crypto enthusiasts-high rates/slow transaction speeds. We are very pleased to be able to introduce this feature integration in mobile browsers so that everyone can seamlessly and directly access Polygon’s decentralized applications (dApps) and MATIC tokens.
Although there are countless nouns in the encryption field, Polygon still only focuses on the Ethereum network and has the advantages of extremely low gas rates and faster transaction speeds.
In addition, according to Opera, the games and NFT apps hosted by Polygon are much more than other 2-layer Ethereum expansion solutions, which means that it is more suitable for people who are new to the Web3 world.
According to the plan, Polygon integration will start with the Android version of Opera browser that already has some Web3 features and a built-in non-custodial encrypted wallet.
As for the desktop version of the Opera browser client, although it also provides an encrypted wallet, the company has not disclosed whether it plans to introduce Polygon integration for the Windows platform in the future.
