Opera is yet again partnering with Yat, the company behind the emoji system that allows people to ditch boring weblinks and use emojis instead of letters and words.

Opera users, who are the first ones on the web to be able to access emoji-only-based web addresses and register their unique strings of emojis as their personal domains, can now listen to exclusive concerts with every new Yat drop. The first one on the roster is a set by Steve Aoki, or 🎂🎵.

The Opera x Yat partnership means that for the first time in the history of the Internet, users are able to navigate the web by entering solely a string of emojis into the URL bar instead of letters and words. They can also highlight them on any website and be taken directly to the link hiding under the emojis. It’s a major paradigm shift in the way the Internet works. Almost 30 years since the world wide web launched to the public and a day after Internet Explorer was laid to rest, everyone can use Opera to tune in to the Steve Aoki set using this link: https://y.at/🖖🆕📦. Why does it matter? Because before Yat entered the space, there hadn’t been much innovation in the weblink space: people still include .com in their URLs. Through the integration with Yat, Opera users are able to ditch .com or even words in their links and use only emojis to be directed to websites. It’s new, it’s easier and more fun.

Wow, this is going to change my life :rolleyes: I want performance improvements, privacy (it's one of the worst). By the way, is anyone here currently using Opera? Is it fast or does it stay the same?
