Opera Latest Version For Windows
With Microsoft ending support for Windows 7 and 8.1, and Chromium following suit, the end of support extends to all major browsers on these versions of the operating system. So from now on all major browsers, including Opera, will no longer get security and feature updates if used on those versions of Windows. Older versions of Opera will, however, continue to work on Windows 7 or 8.1.
So you can start by checking if your device supports a software upgrade to the latest Windows OS. Windows 11, the current version, has certain hardware requirements that make it difficult for older computers to qualify. However, Windows 7 and 8.1 users can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free, and that version is still supported by Microsoft. The company provides a handy guide on how to upgrade here.
The answer is yes. You will still be able to download existing versions of Opera up to Opera 95, and continue browsing on your current system. However, you must keep in mind that these versions will not be receiving the latest security fixes and features that future versions of Opera will get.
We know you might be attached to your current Windows 7 or 8.1 setup but if you want to make sure you have a secure system, and continue receiving important updates, we strongly recommend you upgrade to a newer version of Windows. This way, you will be protected against potential vulnerabilities and you will continue enjoying the latest Opera features and security updates.
Due to popular demand, Opera Software showed interest in programming its browser for alternative operating systems such as Apple Macintosh, QNX and BeOS. On October 10, 1997, they launched "Project Magic", an effort to determine who would be willing to purchase a copy of their browser in their native OS, and to properly distribute funds to develop or outsource for such operating systems. On November 30, 1997 they closed voting for which operating system to develop with. Project Magic then became a news column for updates for alternative operating systems until version 4.
In 2003, MSN.com was configured to present Opera browsers with a style sheet used for old versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Other browsers received either a style sheet tailored to them, or at least the latest Internet Explorer style sheet. The outdated style sheet that Opera received caused Opera to move a significant amount of MSN.com's content 30 pixels to the left of where it should be, distorting the page and making it appear as though there was a bug in Opera.
After the complaints, Microsoft changed their servers to present the latest version of Opera, version 7, with the style sheet served to the latest version of Internet Explorer, which resolved the problem. However, Microsoft continued to serve the outdated style sheet to the older Opera 6.
Version 9.5, codenamed Kestrel (after the Kestrel falcon), was released to span the gap between Opera 9.2 and Opera 10. It included some of the rendering improvements due to be made in Opera 10 and also aimed to provide better integration with various operating systems. The first alpha build of Opera 9.5 was released on September 4, 2007. The first public beta was released on October 25, 2007, and the final version was released on June 12, 2008. The final release was downloaded more than 4.5 million times in the first 5 days.
Opera 28 was released on March 10, 2015, based on Chromium 41.
