Opera for Android now lets you add your favourite sites to home screen

Opera is not letting off in its drive to maintain its position as one of the world’s leading browsers. In Nigeria and across Africa, the browser is one of the most popular on Android devices. However, the latest news is not about its spread and popularity, but some newly added features, including ability to let you add sites to your home screen as an Android user.

The latest version, which has just been released by Opera, has an ‘Add to home screen’ option, which you can find by visiting a site and tapping the plus sign on the left of the address bar.Opera for Android now lets you add your favourite sites to home screen Technology: General

 

For example, all it takes for you to add https://somto.com on your home screen is by tapping the plus sign on the left of the address bar, and this will be added straight to your home screen.

This new feature is handy especially for pages you visit often as it saves you a lot o time. The most fascinating part of this new feature is that sites which are served over HTTPS and have a special manifest like Twitter or Medium, open in full-screen without the browser UI and appear as separate apps in the task switcher when opened from the home screen.

The browser also lets you refresh pages by flicking them downwards.
