Opera 24 for Linux released on the Developer stream - Opera Desktop - Opera Software
Could it be that the Opera guys were not interested in Linux for their old browser because they were regenerating it (just like Dr Who) using Chromium?Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/

If I want to use Chrome/Chromium I will, I don't need an Opera clone...

His old blog has been shutdown where I used to borrow the install instructions. That blog was at Opera's site so Not sure on why his blog was closed there.
Any hows. I mentioned this to some package maintainers I know also who were going to package Up Opera 24 for their Linux Distro.
'Twas worth a try, but no dice.
When invoked, the binary issues an error that it can't find libc6 2.14 and then another that it can't find libc6 2.15.Bummer---maybe later development though will give us something we can use.
Looks like newest Ubuntu and Arch Linux have the required libs needed. But if you wish to give it a try. Instructions are above.

Thank you, Elija. I've just installed a Pale Moon binary on Crux (it's against the spirit of Crux to use precompiled software but I wanted to try it out quickly and it's getting well nigh impossible to build Firefox). It looks lovely - Firefox as it used to be. The only criticism I have is that pages seem to load more slowly than in Firefox itself."I'm just a little old lady; don't try to dazzle me with jargon!"

Don't thank me, thank roky as he found it. I do admit to becoming quite an advocate for it though!
I have had the opposite with regard to page loading. Pale Moon is much faster. Maybe it's because I only used pre-built Firefox binaries. You can grab the source code from the pale moon website but as it is originally a Windows project, I don't know how much work is needed to build it on Linux. Maybe the PM4Linux site has their source code somewhere.
