Opera 25 Stable Will Be Available For Linux Soon

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you know, Opera is a popular web browser, available for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

Last year, Opera has adopted Google’s forked WebKit engine, the new versions of the browser being based on Chromium. After the release of Opera 12.16, the Linux support has been dropped, until Opera 24 Dev.

Opera is built on three branches: stable, beta and developer. The new features are implemented on the developer branch at first, they get added to the beta branch after some tests have been performed and finally, the changes which perform well get integrated into the stable branch.

Opera 25 Stable Will Be Soon Available For Linux

For now, Opera for Linux is available as Beta (Opera 25) and as developer edition (Opera 26), but the developers have recently announced that Opera 25 stable will be released soon.

Opera 25 has received a lot of fixes and changes, including: deleting the entries in History now works properly, the browser no longer uses incorrect fonts, a new bookmark feature that adds a Share button to the bookmark folders has been integrated, among others.

The latest Opera versions for Linux are Opera 25 Beta (25.0.1614.31) and Opera 26 Dev (26.0.1632.0).

Both Opera 25 and Opera 26 are available only for 64 bit (amd64/x86_64) versions of Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr and derivative systems: Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.

    Will that 25-beta install on an older Ubuntu- 10.4??? I have older machine. Is there a way to force it or install in alt folders?

    • Geekster says:

      it is officially supported only on ubuntu 14.04. so most likely, if you try to install it on ubuntu 10.04, you will get dependency issues that cannot be bypassed 🙁
