Today Opera is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the release of a new version for the web browser.

Named Opera version 42, it comes with a range of new features that will make the browser more capable and competitive.

One of the biggest features is the introduction of a built-in currency converter, which will make it easier for users to make purchases from international retailers, all the user needs to do is highlight a price tag on the online store and then they will get the conversion to their local currency.

It supports the conversion of currency in 32 other currencies, with figures sourced from the European Central Bank.

But that’s not all, Opera 42 also comes with a few more features on top.

One such feature is the new newsreader functionality, which will allow users to browse a number of web feeds for the sites that they’re visiting by clicking on the new newspaper icon in the address bar.

From here, users will be able to add feeds for their favourite sources and then receive notifications when new content is published.

By default, this feature is switched off, but you can switch it on via the settings menu.

Opera has also improved loading times across the board, with a network installer for 64-bit.
