The developers of Opera have announced a public release of the Opera browser for Android devices, which has a built-in Ethereum wallet and is “ready for Web 3.0.”
First introduced in July as beta version, the new mobile browser supports not only ETH, but also ERC-20 and ERC-721 tokens, as well as decentralized applications (Dapps), which can be accessed directly from wallet.
The developers also state that the new product is fully ready for Web 3.0 - the concept of developing Internet technologies, which was formulated by Netscape's head in continuation of the concept of Web 2.0 Tim O’Reilly. Its essence is that Web 2.0 is only a technology platform, while Web 3.0 will allow professionals to create high-quality content and services based on it.
It’s a significant step for one of the world’s leading browsers to add an Ethereum-based crypto wallet and Dapp explorer, and speaks to Opera’s innovative roots and commitment to embracing next generation technology. We see this as an important moment in improving Dapp accessibility, opening Web3 to mainstream audiences, and encouraging developers to build on Ethereum.

The company says it decided to start supporting Ethereum, since this platform has the largest and fastest growing community of developers of decentralized applications.
Access to the Ethereum blockchain will be received through the Infura infrastructure platform, among which ConsenSys is among the investors.
