New way to chat on Facebook in Opera for computers

Want to make quicker video calls on Facebook or Twitter? Simply download the Appear.in Social extension for Opera, and you’re good to go!

This extension adds a small appear.in icon on Facebook chat and Twitter direct messages. Clicking that icon generates a video-chat link and automatically sends it to the other person.

Appear.in is a web-based, real-time chat service. It’s one of the best options out there for video chatting — no logins are required, and it works on computers and smartphones. Just open appear.in, create a chatroom and share the link with anyone you want to chat with.

Rich, one of our developers, also came up with Appear.in Handoff extension that allows you to move from one device to another while video chatting. Take a look:
