Opera for desktops may be a couple of steps behind the recently finalized Android version, but it's coming along nicely. A preview build of the now WebKit-based browser (or, technically, Blink-based) is available to try on Windows and Mac with a bunch of features which in some ways look similar to other browsers and add-ons, but which also do things a bit differently:
- Speed Dial -- a home tab that brings large tiles and folders for quick access to favorite sites
- Stash -- a web clipping tool that follows a similar big-tile aesthetic (shown above)
- Smartbox -- a search box that not only predicts what you're looking for but also offers to hunt for it on different search engines, such as Google or Twitter.
