Opera may be one of many third-party browser apps available for Android, but with its latest update things just got a little more swish.

To close tabs, you can now use a simple upwards swipe. Or, if you accidentally banish the wrong tab, you can now reopen recently-closed tabs via the main menu button too.

Other enhancements with the latest update include bug-fixes such as resuming failed-downloads, and a handful of other UI fixes and tweaks.
