Opera Now Includes Facebook Messenger & WhatsApp

Years ago, there was a lot of competition between the web browser manufacturers. Mozilla, Microsoft, Netscape, Google, and others wanted to be the fastest and most featured. After the smoke cleared it looks like Chrome and Firefox came out on top, but the other guys are still fighting for the remaining market share. Opera has all but disappeared into obscurity, but every so often they make it into the tech news once again. The latest version of the Opera browser adds native support for WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. There are extensions for other browsers that provide similar functionality, but it is always nice to see native functionality.
