Opera has released a new update for the Mac version. The popular internet browser has finally gained support for the Apple Silicon M1 processor. Opera will now perform 2x faster on Macs with M1 processors.
Opera is now faster on Mac devices with M1 processors
Opera released a statement about the update on its official website. He said users are making efforts to improve the experience they encounter while browsing the internet. Apple Silicon M1 processor support has improved performance in the browser compared to its previous version, the company said in a statement, adding:
“Like Apple, Opera’s goal is to make your online experience as seamless as possible. With this latest version, Opera works 2 times faster than the previous version of our browser. This means faster access to your favorite websites and faster migration to Opera’s built-in features like WhatsApp, Telegram, Twitter and Instagram.”
Opera last week renewed its mobile app on iOS and iPadOS. It gave the app a simpler and more minimal look. The company continues to accelerate innovations that will improve the quality of use of the browser. The M1 update is one of these innovations.

After Apple parted ways with Intel and switched to its own arm-based Silicon M1 processors, software developers began revising their apps. Many software giants, such as Microsoft, Google, and Adobe, have gained M1 support for their applications.
Applications without M1 processor support can work with the Rosetta 2 emulator. For those of you who don’t know, Rosetta 2 allows Intel-based apps to work with Macs with Apple Silicon M1 processors. However, since this emulator does not run the application locally, it causes a noticeable loss of performance. Developers who don’t want to leave users with this problem need to adapt their applications to the M1 processor.
