Opera 12Hot on last week’s rumors that Opera may soon be acquired by Facebook, the Opera Software team have today released Opera 12. This is available for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

The Opera browser has been around for quite some time now. In fact, Opera version 1 was released way back in 1994! Back then, the browser was available for Microsoft Windows only.

Opera was one of the earliest browsers to introduce features such as tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, and integrated search. In the early 2000s, Opera gained popularity among tech enthusiasts and power users, particularly in Europe.

Later versions were made available for other operating systems such as macOS, Linux, and various mobile operating systems.

Since then, Opera has retained a small, but loyal following. It is the least used of the 5 major browsers. That said, Opera 12 sees a major update to the browser, both in terms of performance and compliance with standards such as HTML5. So it’s certainly worth a closer look!

As part of our ongoing commitment to MIDAS, the latest version of our browser-based scheduling app – as well as our upcoming MIDAS v4 release – is fully compatible with this new Opera release!
