Opera 44 to Add Support for Apple’s MacBook Touch Bar
The Touch Bar available on the MacBook Pro is pretty much the top feature that Apple added to its refreshed line of laptops, so now developers are updating their apps to support it.
Opera is obviously one of the first companies to do so, and the recently-released version 44 (still in preview, of course) comes with an early implementation of Touch Bar support. Starting with this version, some Opera shortcuts are available right on the Touch Bar, including navigation controls.
“We didn’t like how Safari had implemented the screenshots of tabs, so we went with a much more useful icons and colours,” Opera explains.

Additionally, version 44 also introduces the credential management API which makes it possible for websites to control storing and filling in of credentials, making it easier for users to log in without compromising security in any way.
