Opera Browser has been updating itself continuously over the past couple of years. Due to this, it has gained immense popularity among its users.
Everyone seems to be gushing over the new additions to the browsers and their updated systems. The speed is also surreal and better than all the other contemporaries.
The Opera Browser offers the option to send a link that you find interesting or need for work from one device to another seamlessly. It is possible through the presence of the My Flow option by Opera.
Opera Flow makes the transfer of links very easy, and it can happen in a blink of an eye. Now, you don’t have to think of ways to continue reading that article on your laptop when the battery dies. It also supports the synchronization of text and files apart from the links.
Before sending the links, we need to connect two or more devices using Opera Flow. There are typically two connection methods – Anonymous and Registered user. We will focus on connecting anonymously since registered users need to sign in to the devices with the same login ID.
