    its pretty much spot on perfect and DOES NOT NEED BLUETOOTH to be enabled. It also seems to be doing it by itself without needing Apple Handoff enabled. It also doesn't need any special logins or pass codes or anything at all. It just works automagically. Maybe Apple could learn something from them.

    Learn what? Pretty much any app can be handed off.

    Learn about not needing Bluetooth and only needing *any* data connection.

    Itself. Any time you open it up on any other device you're exactly where you left off.

    How?

    Is it logged into the same account or something?

    What is the actual mechanism at play here?

    Unless Opera is popping an icon on my Macbook Dock I'm going to put it in the same category as Google Chrome which also has this multiple-device open web page thing going on

    Ugh. This is ridiculous, Is Opera Coast available for the desktop to synch with? Then it doesn't do jack squat better than anything.

    Then, in my opinion, it's not better than Apple, that has designed Handoff to work between iOS devices as well as with OS X devices. Two different OSs!
