The look of Opera One R2 has evolved into a more elegant and intuitive interface. The highlight is the updated media player, which allows you to manage tracks from services like Spotify directly in the sidebar, without switching tabs or opening other applications.

The floating video function has also been optimized, making it easier to resize and position video content. Additionally, new themes and sound effects have been introduced to personalize navigation.

Opera One R2 also features the Split Screen, ideal for wide monitors, displaying two pages simultaneously. It’s a very useful resource for people like me, who work with writing and constantly checking sources.

In addition, an option to mark tabs with emojis was also made available, making them more recognizable. This is a feature that has already arrived in Opera One, the main and stable version of the company’s browser.

Last but not least, Opera’s AI capabilities expand in One R2. Aria, the browser’s AI, can now generate images, play voice e until read responses to the user. The Page Context mode is another advancement, capable of summarizing texts, searching for specific information and translating online content.
