Why I left Opera (Linux)
I've been with Opera Linux up to 12.16. (July 2013) Opera has received regular updates only for Mac and Windows But Linux users have been kept in the dark for over a year and have received no updates until late last year I asked on opera blog and got this friendly reply.

I Thank you guys very much
Opera now has X64 linux for some dstros, of course, but not X86.
Because I never installed Linux for regular use on one of my boxes until recently, and the only reason I DID install it was because it was a ton lighter than Windows on this antiquated P4 machine, then of course the only Linux I have is on two X86 towers. So I never had to leave Opera on Linux, because I never had it. Vivaldi released a 32-bit version for Linux, I think in their third snapshot, and so I have been a happy user of Vivaldi on Linux ever since.
I needed for some mobile devices as Netbook and Notebook a 32bit version. Opera didnt support Linux 32bit very well.
I left Opera browser on Linux because development, bugfixing and user feedback on x86 and x64 architecture was bad the last years.
Opera has now a Linux version but i think how long will this last? I think, Linux is not the prlatform Opera will really support for longer period. Operas goal is mobile market, not desktop.
