Opera is an internet browser developed by the company "Opera Software ASA"/Oslo. It is non-free software, since only binaries are made available (License).
Up to version 12, Opera made their own engine for Opera, called Presto. But 2013, they decided to re-create the browser from scratch, built on Chromium with the Blink engine. The first version of the "new Opera" was Opera 15, and the "old Opera" was discontinued. But as the new browser was built from scratch, it lost many features. Therefore, there are still many users that want to use Opera 12.
