We have installed all Opera versions from Opera 12 to Opera 75 (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 76) is in early June 2021.

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.

There are two ways to access Opera developer tools. The first is by clicking the "O" menu under the Opera logo and by going to the developer tools section. The second is by hitting Control+Shift+i.
