Opera is a web browser (and even an Internet suite) muliplatform version 10.5x and will be again soon. Once is not only custom in fact, the availability of Opera 10.5x did not in fact made synchronously between all environments traditionally supported.

The Windows operating system has first had the scoop of Opera 10.50 then it was the case for Mac OS X version 10.52. Soon, it was the turn of Linux and FreeBSD to taste Opera 10.53 which is a beta just been put online.

As with other environments, we find also the creation of tabs and browser close to windows (separate window) or widgets that can be used outside the browser and executed in a separate process.

own walls are devoted users,” said Jon von Tetzchner, co-founder, Opera
Software. “It was important for us in this release to make alterations
to our terms of usage, in order to make Opera even easier to distribute
on Linux.”
