The first version of the Opera web browser to be based on Chromium has been released.

Opera 15, based on Chromium 28, brings with it Google’s new Blink rendering engine and a host of new features, including support for Chromium extensions. 

But it’s not merely a Chrome-clone. Aside from the Blink/V8 combo powering things under the hood, Opera have added their own stamp, as the video below shows.

Opera 15 is available to download for Windows and Mac, with a Linux version to follow shortly.
