Opera has released the latest version of its desktop browser for Windows and Mac today.

With Opera 22, the Norwegian firm has introduced five new themes that “showcase the local scenery” from Norway. “They complement Opera and add a touch of Scandinavian style to your desktop,” the company continues.


Opera typically rolls out new versions fairly frequently, with the previous incarnation landing less than a month ago. With that in mind, the latest refresh brings a new ‘silent-update’ feature to Windows users, which basically means you no longer have to suffer update dialogs while you’re browsing the Web. Opera says you can now browse without distraction, with everything taking place in the background.

A handful of other updates have been issued too, and you can read the full changelog here.
