Opera Software "Countless hours of hard work, hectoliters of coffee, tons of improvements, two version numbers skipped, and here it is: the all-new Opera for desktop is now out as an Opera Next version, Opera's channel for what used to be called beta. Made from scratch, this version is available for Windows and Mac and brings a new, elegant design and a bunch of new features that will make your browsing experience sleeker and easier than ever." The first version using something called 'Chromium's engine' - I guess they can't call it WebKit anymore, but they can't call it Blink yet either. It's looking great, but the bookmark functionality seems to not have been implemented yet in this preview

Opera for Android

For those that are disappointed with the new Opera on Android, Opera released Opera Classic: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.opera.browser.clas...

I am thankful they did. The new version was slow enough on my phone (HTC Rezound) to be annoying. On my wife's phone (older technology), it was quite painful.

Yay! Now I can uninstall Opera, and can use "Update All" again in the Play Store.

The new Opera on Android has issues with CSS or fonts or something. For example, reading the comments on osnews.com in desktop mode is painful.

Unfortunately, the Opera Classic install doesn't pick up the settings and saved info from the Opera install. ;)

But, at least now I have a working Opera that won't change to a non-working, Chrome-based Opera.
