Opera Browser Testing

Browserling offers free online cross-browser testing in the Opera browser. We have installed all Opera versions on our cloud servers and you can access any Opera version on any operating system at any time. Opera is available on Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows 11. To access Opera from Browserling, you don't have to install any additional software as Browserling is powered by HTML5 and JavaScript. Opera runs on real computers and it's not a fake browser simulator or emulator.

We have installed all Opera versions from Opera 10 to Opera 102 (currently the latest version). New Opera versions get released every couple of months and when they do, we install them on our cross-browser testing platform. The next Opera release (Opera 103) is expected in early October 2023. Coming soon, we'll also be offering Opera on macOS systems.

Do you run an Opera emulator?

No, we don't run an Opera emulator. We install Opera from official installation packages and it runs on a real computer, and you get remote access to a computer running it. It's neither an emulator nor a simulator.

What is the Live Opera API?

Live API is a technology that we created that lets you put a browser in your browser via JavaScript. You can embed Opera in any other browser (for example, Opera in Internet Explorer, or Opera in Chrome) and access an online version that's running in a sandbox.
