Download Opera For Chromebook
Hello everyone, you can now download Opera for Chromebook and browse the web using your favorite browser of your choice. I know a lot of you have been wondering about this! Starting with Chromebook’s that were made in 2017 or after, it is now possible to run Android apps on Chrome OS devices including most if not all modern Chromebook’s that were made in the past 2 years or so. You can check out a full list of Chromebooks that support installing and running Android apps.
Today we will feature one of the most popular internet browsers on the planet and a browser that has not given up despite trailing both Chrome, Edge and Firefox. I am talking about the Opera browser. I have to hand it to the company behind Opera for somehow resisting the many attempts from the larger companies who tried to buy and I am sure a lot of them are still trying. Opera has it’s dedicated fan base and I must admit, I used to love Opera back in the early 2000’s but then I fell in love with Firefox and then now of course I in love with Chrome. We do have some people here at the office who swear to only use Opera and I don’t blame at all, the slick design matched with the privacy and speed browsing can make anyone a fan. Let us know in the comments what you think about Opera if you decide to try it.
