Opera team just released Opera 27 based on Chromium/Blink 40. Minutes later we added this browser to Browserling on all OS platforms. Everyone including free and paid users can cross-browser test in Opera 26.

As this release is based on Chromium 40, which discontinued Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) plugins like Adobe Flash Player, Opera also no longer supports NPAPI plugins.
Opera 27 is the first new stable version on Linux since 12.16 (which was released on July 4, 2013).
The following new features were added to Opera 27:
- Tab menu
A new tab menu helps you find tabs in a list view once a large amount have been opened. Look for the button on the far right of the tab bar.
- Enhanced bookmark manager
Context menus and issues with empty bookmark folders in the bookmark manager have been tweaked and fixed.
- Improved PPAPI support
Enhanced support for Pepper Flash Player (PPAPI) solving issues with Chromium's discontinuation of Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) plugins like Adobe Flash Player.
- New start page navigation
Opera internal pages, like Bookmarks, Speed Dial and Discover, now have a new navigation at the bottom of the start page.
- Support for synthesized speech
Improvements and major changes since Opera 26:
- Stability enhancements.
- Removed Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI) plugin support.
- Enhanced support for Pepper Flash Player (PPAPI).
Happy cross-browser testing in Opera 27!
