No, it doesn't mean No-Follow. 'nofollow'  tells search engines 'don't follow this link.'


'nooperner' prevents the new page from being able to enter the window.opener


'noferrer' indicates no referrer information to be leaked on this link.


<a ="https://example.com/" target = "_blank" rel= "noopener noreferrer">Example</a>

No.

rel="noopener" prevents the new page from being able to access the window.opener property and ensures it runs in a separate process

Nofollow tells Google not to follow the link and not to pass on link juice.

Both completely different.

Nofollow giving you granular control to individual external links such as a webpage you don’t necessarily endorse or an internal link you want to prevent bots to access or index such as your members login page.
Noopener is another property that gives you granular control for webpage performance and security when accessing content on a new window, the noopener directive will block access to window.opener.

In terms of SEO, what really matters is how you use the nofollow rather than the noopener. Noopener is just preventing the browser (some of then) to execute malicious Scripts.
