Opera Touch, in a sense, is a new browser for Android from the house of popular browser developer – Opera. The browser basically facilitates easy single handed browsing, thanks to its unique design and the flow feature. Now, the browser is getting its 8th update after its initial release that happened around in the month of last April. The latest update takes the version number to 1.7.2 from the previous 1.6 and is not just a maintenance release. But, a feature-packed update that you can see from the official changelog below.

- New option: Clear history available from 3 dots menu
- Easier way to open tab in background/foreground
- File/Image uploading
- Basic web authorization
- Home screen looks better
- Reduced package size
- Stability fixes
First and foremost, the nifty feature find in page option is at last coming to the browser. As you know, the Opera Touch is a new comer and hence lacks even basic features that are staple on other well established browsers. Despite Opera is adding improvements slowly and steadily to attain the level of competitors. Another much needed add-on which is debuting here is the support for file/image upload.
All other changes are focused on UI and browser tabs improvements. Opera Touch now looks even better and cosy to use. The main motive behind the release of this browser is to offer a simple, fast and easy browsing with an appealing appearance. With the new update Opera had made sure to enhance the overall look of the browser.
