As before with Google Chrome you have to scan the QR code on your computer via your phone to login and access whatsApp on Firefox or Opera browsers. The QR scan is required only the first time or till you clear your web cache. After the QR scan verifies your WhatsApp App, you can see all the messages in your Chrome, Firefox and Opera browser by just visiting web.whatsapp.com.
With expanding support to top two desktop Browsers, WhatsApp is one step ahead from Google’s hangout which can be installed only on Google’s Chrome browser.
